I am way behind in posting about some new product and store launches I got to know about when the brilliant people behind these products wrote to me. Today, I end the procrastination and present to you the latest in the world of products and design:
TUKAANI by Lincoln Kayiwa
Lincoln is a young designer who has started his brand product design company Kayiwa. He wrote to me introducing the super useful eating device known as TUKAANI. In his own words: "TUKAANI is Finnish for the toucan bird species. The sterling silver TUKAANI is a hand made eating device for oriental food consumers in the West. It may be held as traditional chopsticks. But unlike the disposable wooden chopsticks, TUKAANI is both machine and hand washable and much easier to set on – and use at table. The matt surface and taut movement allow steady grip in the hand. The curl at the end of the TUKAANI provides eased food picking and delivery to the mouth. The loop also allows easier hanging, storage and display. The Toucan's bill provided inspiration for this cutlery project"
I can't wait to try this one out! *Lincoln: When do you launch in India? :)
TowelTender by Wallace Clay Design
Wondering where to hang the hand towel in your bathroom? Well, hang it on the TowelTender! A soon to be patented design, by Wallace Clay Design, the TowelTender is designed to fit the most common round-style pedestal sinks. The company is also coming up very soon with a design to fit square pedestal, vanity, or kitchen sinks.
Online decor boutique: Stylkist
Stylkist is the new online home decor store targeted at design conscious consumers in India. Check out their range of contemporary decor which includes furnishing, wall decor, candles, vases and table decor
Petals by Shades of India
Good Earth, one of my favorite stores, has exclusively launched the new range of furnishing by Shades of India. The email announcing the launch was a teaser...I will need to check out their store for this exciting new range!
Talking about Good Earth stores, I would strongly recommend Good Earth's new store at Saket to my readers in Delhi, and those visiting Delhi. Spread over four floors, the store is a visual delight - a contemporary translation of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture.
