November Finds

November 15, 2016

Oslo speaker by Vifa

Not that there’s a shortage of beautiful, high-quality Bluetooth speakers that are designed to fit elegantly into your home, but we recently stumbled across those made by Danish firm Vifa and instantly fell in love with their offerings. Their latest, Oslo, “will touch your eyes and open your senses.”

Jono Smart pottery

In a slight break from tradition, we’re linking to Jono Smart despite the fact that none of his products are currently available to buy. His pottery is so popular that he’s preparing for his next store opening in the first week of December. We’re eagerly anticipating it.

ECLIPSE by Native Union

The folks at Native Union have proven their chops at making seriously lovely cables (who knew that could even be a thing?) and now they’re back with a Kickstarter campaign to fund their latest creation ECLIPSE: a “new, neater way to charge your daily devices.”

At the time of writing, they’ve raised over $700,000, which is not at all bad, considering their goal was $50,000! The campaign ends in a few hours, so be sure to check it out if you want to pre-order your own. 

Edison lamp wooden docking station

While we’re on the subject of charging stations, we love this one on Etsy with an Edison lamp built right in, made from recycled wood.

Leather Bowery camera bag by ONA

Our friend and regular photographic contributor Dan Rubin — who has photos in every single issue of Lagom, don’t you know? — turned us onto ONA a while ago and although it’s hard to pick just one, their Leather Bowery messenger bag is definitely climbing up our Christmas list. 

Residents: Inside the Iconic Barbican Estate

Finally, a beautiful new book about the people who live in London’s iconic Barbican Estate — highly regarded for its Brutalist architecture and the strong sense of community amongst those who live in there — photographed by Anton Rodriguez, who happens to be a resident himself. Interestingly, Anton’s project began online as part of the Artist Initiative project from our friends at VSCO.
