                                If you&#8217;re not familiar with the <a href="https://design-milk.com/?s=ostrich"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">nap-friendly wares</a> of <a href="https://studiobanana.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Studio Banana</a>, YOU&#8217;RE MISSING OUT! Their quirky <a href="https://ostrichpillow.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">nap pillows</a> are cult and Design Milk favorites because who doesn&#8217;t love and need a good nap, especially while working or on the go? The beloved design studio continues their quest to give you privacy, and possibly, a good nap with their latest release – the <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/studio-banana/ostrich-pillow-hood-shape-shifting-for-focus-and-c?ref=74bdno"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">OSTRICHPILLOW HOOD</a>.
There’s nothing like distractions to waste an enormous amount of time while you’re trying to get work done and studies show it takes approximately 23 minutes to get back to a task once distracted. But by reducing the ability to see what’s going on in the periphery, you’re able to focus more on what’s in front of you. The OSTRICHPILLOW HOOD aims to do just that by helping to block visual distractions. Whether you want to buckle down and concentrate on work, or zone out

The NU:RO Minimalist Analog Watch

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/nuro-watch/nuro_angle_1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/09/NURO_Angle_1-810x566.jpg" alt="The NU:RO Minimalist Analog Watch" /></a>
                                The concept behind Brooklyn-based design studio Anton &amp; Irene&#8217;s analog wrist watch <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/antonandirene/nu-ro-minimalist-analog-watch"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">NU:RO</a> is a fairly simple idea executed with laudable refinement: two rotating numerical dials meeting at the center, with hours and minutes highlighted by the graphical outline of an hourglass.

The NU:RO’s 40mm diameter 316L stainless steel case is housed behind sapphire crystal glass.

Designers Anton Repponen and Irene Pereyra decided to make the leap into product design to produce the analog NU:RO watch themselves eight years after proposing the design. Those interested in this minimalist expression of time have only till October 10th to fund the studio’s Kickstarter campaign. A $300 pledge offers investors the option to choose from three different bands – black leather, white leather or stainless steel mesh (vegan) – along with the option to buy an extremely limited edition sculpture by Shantell Martin formed to complement the NU:RO wrist watch. The NU:RO is a late bloomer,

                                It seems everywhere you look – television, magazines, food sites, and inside the world&#8217;s best restaurants – if there&#8217;s a chef working, there&#8217;s a good chance you&#8217;ll spot a <a href="https://www.hedleyandbennett.com/collections/all-aprons"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Hedley &amp; Bennett apron</a>, identifiable by their unmistakable red ampersand logo. The aprons have become synonymous with the rising generation of younger chefs around the globe, becoming nearly as ubiquitous as avocado toast on brunch menus. And now they&#8217;ve set sights on adorning the feet of chefs, bartenders, servers, and any hustling creative in similar colorful fashion.
Hedley & Bennett founder Ellen Bennett represents the inspirational epitome of the scrappy one-person operation hustling into a multimillion-dollar operation, earning the title of “Culinary World’s Apron Queen” for her unceasing drive and efforts combining serving the functional needs required of cooking professionals with her keen eye for fashionable expression. Looking at their vast catalog of patterns and fabrics, it’s then

Charles & Ray Eames Pins from ACME Studios

                                Maybe you&#8217;re a fan of their iconic designs or perhaps you&#8217;re just a collector of pins – either way, these <a href="https://acmestudio.com/the-family/shop/Charles-Ray-Eames-504/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Charles &amp; Ray Eames pins</a> from <a href="https://acmestudio.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ACME Studios</a> are a must. The collectible pins are an accessory you can easily afford at just $14 each, which is a far cry from the actual pieces themselves. Since many of us can&#8217;t afford an authentic Eames Chair or an accessory, the pins are a great way to carry a piece of design history around with you every day. You can choose from three classic designs – the <a href="https://acmestudio.com/products-accessories-jewelry/Charles_Ray_Eames/EAMES_DCW_Pin/DCW%7C/JE14P/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">DCW Chair</a>, <a href="https://acmestudio.com/products-accessories-jewelry/Charles_Ray_Eames/HOUSE_BIRD_Pin/HOUSE-BIRD%7C/JE15P/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">House Bird</a>, or <a href="https://acmestudio.com/products-accessories-jewelry/Charles_Ray_Eames/DOTS_Pin/DOTS_MULTI%7C/JE02P/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Dots</a>.
The pins are made of zinc alloy with handmade cloisonné enamel and are held in place with a butterfly backing. They come on an Eames branded card and packaged in a black ACME felt pouch for safe keeping.

                                Inspired by recent findings regarding the effects of air pollution on the planet, designer <a href="https://evasonneveld.nl/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Eva Sonneveld</a> designed a fashion concept called <a href="https://evasonneveld.nl/collections.html"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Survival Constructions</a> that’s based on the idea that we need to start adapting to our bleak world if we are to survive. In collaboration with Claudine Pieters from the Technical University in Eindhoven, she created a sweater that’s designed to detect dangerous levels of air pollution around you. Air pollution, also known as the silent killer because you can’t always see it, kills up to 8 million people per year <a href="https://www.cbsnews.com/news/how-air-pollution-makes-people-sick-8-million-early-deaths-each-year/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">according to this article</a> and is a leading cause of global warming. Sonneveld and Pieters’ sweater would ideally protect wearers against this threat.
WATCH:
The sweater is dyed with a thermochromic ink that’s heat-reactive, making it change to purple when exposed to high levels of pollution. A chip is also added to sweater to send a pulse and alert

                                In the spring of 2017, Stockholm-based <a href="https://www.tidwatches.com/en/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">TID Watches</a> created a new collaborative platform called TID Canvas where it invites designers to reinterpret the brand’s iconic <a href="https://www.tidwatches.com/en/shop/watches/no-1" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">TID No.1 Watch</a>. Previously, the company collaborated with Form Us With Love on the <a href="https://design-milk.com/tid-watches-launches-no-3-silicone-strap-transparent-case/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">TID No.3 edition</a> which featured silicone wristbands. For the latest <a href="https://www.tidwatches.com/en/explore/canvas-002" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">TID Canvas 002 edition</a>, they tapped designer <a href="http://www.claravonzweigbergk.se/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Clara von Zweigbergk</a> (who’s worked with brands like Hay, Louis Poulsen, Areaware, and more) to create a limited-edition production run of knitted wristwatches.
von Zweigbergk is known for her colorful aesthetics and playful forms in design. For this collaboration, she wanted to combine the intricacies of crochet knitting techniques with the minimalistic design of the watch. Working with TextieLab in the Netherlands, she created five knitted wristbands made from fly fishing nylon threads in five colorways, each with a different stitching technique. The wristwatches come with an all-white watch face with

Where sneaker fiends often spend an inordinate amount of time, care, and money keeping kicks immaculate, Chucks are purposely worn down for months or even years to attain a certain well-worn aesthetic. Like denim, the tears, rips, and shreds marring the surface are celebrated – desirable tattoos of age. It makes sense then the latest <a href="https://news.nike.com/news/converse-dr-woo-chuck-70-reveal"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Converse x Dr. Woo</a> collaboration accentuates this aspect of Chucks culture into a fashionable feature with the ‘Wear to Reveal’ collection.
The artist’s previous collaborative collection used embroidery to represent Brian Woo’s notable talents as a skin artist to the stars. The sequel takes a more dimensional route, purposely tearing apart small sections of the Converse Chuck 70 black or white canvas silhouette, revealing another colorful layer of pattern awaiting underneath to be exposed with time (or ripped, if patience isn’t your thing).

The Adidas Grit Emulates the Sinking Feeling of Running on Sand

                                Running on soft sand sucks. Even amongst professional athletes, the explosive speed and lasting endurance normally on tap evaporates quickly when feet hit sand. But research shows the risk of injury declines while endurance improves training upon the impact-absorbing surface. Thus, the workout has garnered popularity with professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike. Designer <a href="https://www.aarishnetarwala.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Aarish Netarwala&#8217;s</a> resistance-producing concept shoes for Adidas replicates the same physical challenge with a baroque 3D-printed lattice designed to suck away energy and strengthen muscles with every foot strike – all without the hassle of getting sand in-between the toes.

“Fatigue Faster” doesn’t normally have a ring to it, but in explosive strength optimization, it might sell.

Athletes have long turned to running on sand to strengthen muscles and improve endurance, all without the wear and tear associated with pounding concrete. It’s a habit Netarwala observed amongst athletes training across the challenging sandy incline of Sand

                                Plastic continues to be a growing problem around the world, and while more is being done to reduce consumption (think drinking straws and plastic bags), it seems like one genre hasn&#8217;t quite caught up – children&#8217;s toys. It&#8217;s almost impossible to go to anyone&#8217;s home that has children and not spot a dozen oversized plastic toys that parent&#8217;s hate and kids love, or take a stroll down the toy row at your closest big box store and see that 90% of the options are ugly plastic. Longing to do something about it, two Antwerp-based designers spent two years exploring ways to sustainably recycle old plastic toys and the result is <a href="https://www.ecobirdy.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ecoBirdy</a>. The new European brand crafts really cool design <a href="https://www.ecobirdy.com/product-category/design-products/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">pieces</a> for kids that are made using 100% recycled plastic waste from unused toys.

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/elevate-your-meditation-practice-with-comfortable-meditation-cushions/project-full-meditation-cushion-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/08/project-full-meditation-cushion-1-810x540.jpg" alt="Elevate Your Meditation Practice with Comfortable Meditation Cushions" /></a>
                                If you meditate daily like me, you know just how hard it is to find a quiet, comfortable spot, especially if you&#8217;re always on the go. That&#8217;s where meditation cushions come in as they&#8217;re portable and they help support your body so you can stay focused on your practice. If you&#8217;ve looked around online, you know the options are fairly limited. Enter <a href="https://projectfull.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Project Full</a>. They&#8217;re a San Francisco-based company that was founded by architects and industrial designers who also happen to be committed to meditation and mindful living.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign in early 2018, they’ve launched a collection of modern meditation cushions that are 100% organic. They’ve available in sets, which include a bottom floor cushion + top support cushion, and come in five colors – Charcoal, Moonrock, Natural, Rosewood, and Slate Grey. The triangular shaped cushions offer a comfortable place to sit, relax, or mediate when you’re

                                Hey y&#8217;all. Since ICFF, we&#8217;ve been cooking up something fun. As you may know, we have our popup, <a href="https://design-milk.com/milk-stand-popped-up-again-icff-2018-video/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">Milk Stand, at ICFF</a> every year, but this year we actually <a href="https://design-milk.com/milk-stand-popped-up-again-icff-2018-video/milk-stand-2018-design-milk/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">had our own little booth</a> selling fun stuff like tees, totes, pins and stickers (thanks <a href="http://designcrushblog.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Kelly</a>!). Lots of people were asking how to buy them after the show, so we finally got around to making our own online shop, obviously named <a href="http://shopmilkfactory.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Milk Factory</a> (what else?!?!). Our launch collection includes all the stuff we had at ICFF and <a href="https://shopmilkfactory.com/products/focus-tee"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">an extra t-shirt</a> we made for the super popular &#8220;I just really need to focus on my design right now.&#8221; Most of the products are proudly screen printed in Pittsburgh, and we hope to have more coming out in the future, but let&#8217;s see where this crazy rollercoaster ride takes us. (Oh AND we ship internationally!) Happy shopping!
