All of the items we use in day-to-day life were the result of a designer’s vision and skill. Some products are basic; designed to be simple and practical. That in itself can create beautifully understated objects. Other items display a flair that trancends the merely practical to the level of art. The very best in my view are objects which combine practicality with eye-catching style. In this occasional series we would like to feature those things that catch our designers’ eyes, as it were.
Here is something that struck me as being pure fun. It is featured over at holycool.net. Yes, it’s a cutting board made of apple wood, for Apple fans, in the shape of an Apple MacBook. I’m not sure why I like this so much. Marie might say it’s “Mac envy.” Maybe she’s right, or maybe it’s because I would get to cut veggies on a MacBook. 🙂
