AiAiAi + Sneaker Freaker earbuds

Just bought a pair of these. They’re just so loveable. Check out the color scheme! Using the corporate colors of Sneaker Freaker these little ones won’t pass by unnoticed. Get a pair of AirMax1’s from the Safari pack and you’re ready to rock your very own private dance floor waiting for the bus. :)

Made in collaboration between the Danish creative collective AiAiAi and the Australian sneaker site/magazine Sneaker Freaker. If you want to get your hands on a pair you better hurry since they’re limited edition. If you’re one of the lucky ones living in Sydney, Melbourne, Copenhagen, Oslo, Boston, NYC or LA keep your ears open for some launch events held for these buddies. Check out and buy them online at the AiAiAi web site.

Chunky Dunny

So it’s not all about vinyl. Brooklyn designer David Weeks is back and he’s made five (5!) Dunny’s, hand hewn out of zebra-striped hard pine. Each little fella’ is obviously one of a kind since the wood differs. If you want to get your hands of one of them you better sleep outside the Kidrobot store in NYC or be super quick to order one online when they’re released Tuesday September 22.

Nintendo 8-bit external hard drive

Oh my God! These external hard drives are so cool! Imagine having one of these plugged in, it would totally make me smile every single day. They’re made by order and you can specify the specs and if you’re lucky they might be able to find your favorite game. I’d love to have a Megaman #1 hard drive. Get your very own over at Etsy.

Eames+Bathing Ape!

Ok so this is it. This must be the perfect match between the Rafrafgirl’s interests. Cat is into Eames. And well I’m a fan of Bathing Ape. So this chair sort of represents us in a way :) Anyway, we think it’s nice collab and update of an iconic chair. Imagine having one of those thrown inbetween single colored chairs. Awesome!

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no it’s a Starbucks

3768138167_a33dc7f34c
Everyone has an opinion on Starbucks. Whether you like them or not you most likely to pop by and get yourself a coffee when ever you need your cafeine fix. For us Europeans (or should I say Swedes?) the coffee from a Starbucks shop is a bit…well dull. And weak. But maybe they’ll change that since they bought the Cloverfield machine.

Anyway. Seems like Starbucks finally picked up on the ‘local-going-back-to-the-roots’ trend. Setting up the very first coffee shop like ‘The Central Perk’ in Friends. Being around the corner, like a second home when ever you need it.

Last Friday a cute new coffee shop opened in Seattle, dubbed “15th Avenue E Coffee and Tea”–it’s one of those unique places that are being beaten out of business by big nasty Starbucks. Wait a second, it is a Starbucks.

So it says ‘Inspired by Starbucks’ in the window. But hey, what normal coffee shop owner would put up a text like that in the window? Of course Starbucks themselves. So this seems to be a new way of branding for Starbucks, making undercover stealth shops. They’ve always been good in listening to their customers, which made their community ‘My Starbucks Idea‘ really successful.

Well we most certainly haven’t seen the last attempt on stealth marketing. WHo will be next out on doing something like this? Do you have an example, get it into the comments and we’ll discuss it further.

Interesting Ink Calender

The ink will slowly color each day of the month as time passes by. My first reaction was, I want one. I love the idea and think a live calender would be pretty neat to have.

The aim of the project is to address our senses, rather than the logical and conscious brain.

Designer: Oscar Diaz. Unfortunately it’s not available for purchase. But can be seen on display as part of SUEÑOS DE UN GRIFO. Diseño con alma de agua at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, 17 July – 11 October 2009.
