Not the first time Tokyo Flash has caught my eye with a unique watch, but the Oberon might be my favorite of their collection. Simple, elegant, sexy. The outer ring of lights signify the hour; the middle ring, single minutes; the inner ring, minutes x10. 8:13 shown here.
Zero-G by Futara. Available in silver and black (black is much sexier). An interesting way to tell time - the hour indicator points to the hour in the traditional manner, and from that point a circle of squares rotate out and end at the current minute (10:27 shown). Only $80, so pick up one of each color.
nau, who takes their name from the Maori word for 'welcome', sets out to bring sustainability to the world of performance and casual sportswear. Aside from developing environmentally friendly fabrics while keeping a close eye on design and performance, nau will aim to sell as much of their clothing as possible online - to reduce the costs and environmental impact of a larger retail store. Stay tuned for the launch of their full line in late January - for now their website will give you a sneak peek of some gear and get you up to speed on their philosophy.
Be sure to check The Thought Kitchen, nau's "effort at collective inquiry and its power to affect change".
Lame title, I know. Anyway, I came across these two pieces separately within a week of each other.
The keyboard shoe won first prize in the 6th Hong Kong Footwear Design Contest - couldn't find the designer info. The keyboard bag is made by João Sabino, a Portuguese industrial designer who seems to just operate from his blog.
