I still remember the first time I saw the original QLOCKTWO; it was love at first sight. Beautiful, elegant and minimal. I loved the idea of being able to literally read the time on my clock. The only thing I didn’t like was the $1,150 price tag.
Now Biegert & Funk is bringing everything that the QLOCKTWO is, right to your table, with the QLOCKTWO TOUCH ($513), an alarm clock version of the original wall clock.
The QLOCKTWO TOUCH features a touch-activated snooze function, an ambient light sensor and an interchangeable letter matrix in different colors and languages (you can purchase other matrices separately).
You can buy it on the Biegert & Funk Store.
This year is almost over, which means it’s almost time to get ready to start the countdown toward the end of the next one. To do that, there’s no better tool than the Carpe Diem calendar ($10) by Doiy Design.
The Carpe Diem calendar is a single perforated page that allows you to detach the days as they go by and keep track of how many days you have left until the end of the year.
You can buy it at Doiy Design.
I have two problems: I always have a thousand things going on and my memory is terrible. Small, simple and minimal, the Desk-It Weekly Calendar ($10) is the perfect solution for both of these problems. Since it has a sticky edge, you’ll be able to easily place your weekly calendar wherever you can see it best, so you won’t ever miss an appointment again.
You can buy it on Poketo
Vespas are probably one of the most iconic pieces of Italian design. Now, imagine how cool it would be to bring one of those in your office and sit on it all day. While sitting eight hours on a Vespa seat may not sound very comfortable, the Vespa Seat ($TBA) made by Bel & Bel, will prove you wrong. Built from old Vespa parts found in scrap yards, each scooter chair is unique, and comes numbered with a certificate of authenticity just like a piece of art.
You can find more info at Bel & Bel’s website.
It’s time to upgrade that sad plastic desk organizer that you bought on sale at Office Depot. The i/o Desk Organizer ($TBA) is a beautiful desk organizer designed by Kaiju Studios. Made of natural materials such as wood and felt, it features a modular design that will let you rearrange its elements the way you prefer.
Not yet mass produced, Kaiju Studios is working on a small run of this product and you can join the waiting list here.
