Cigarette Socks by Ashi Dashi

I want to preface this post by saying that if you send me something there is no guarantee I will write about it. I only write about what I like, and I receive a lot of product that I don’t mention on this site. Save yourself money by emailing me first! End rant. Ken runs a little sock company out of his apartment in Brooklyn, called Ashi Dashi. I love these ones he sent over that look like cigarettes!

    Waow! They’re so kitsch and cute, and they look really snuggly. They make me glad it’s almost winter in Australia, I’m dreaming of hot coffee and these cigarettes.

    I like the pencil socks! The intestines are a little creepy – but pretty if you forget what they are supposed to be!

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!

Barcelona Design Centre’s annual Barcelona Design Week runs from June 2-12 this year. The event brings together creative professionals and businesses from around the world to share ideas, trends and knowledge about a variety of topics — offering over 70 different activities ranging from workshops and roundtables to tours and art exhibitions.

This year’s lineup of speakers includes Brett Wickens (of design studio Ammunition) and Alice Rawsthorn (who writes about design for International New York Times and frieze) kicking off the opening conference on June 2nd. June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.
