Comments Off on EnjoyTwice Reinvents Discarded Advertising Cardboard with their Geometric Pendant Lamps

Under the flag of design label EnjoyTwice , a handful of designers have been working with difficult to recycle materials since 2009. Their latest product is the EnjoyTwice Light made from recycled advertising cardboard — a material that is very hard to recycle as it is made with plastic and glue. Each light is unique and made in Amsterdam with the utmost care and attention. Their design process was led by the intrinsic merits of the material. These lamps are part of a numbered limited edition and include a hand-signed certificate of authenticity. Hang them from the ceiling or set them on a flat surface for a strong and streamlined look! + EnjoyTwice The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Fake Artisan Plunger Company Poo Poos “Authentic” Branding

Comments Off on Fake Artisan Plunger Company Poo Poos “Authentic” Branding

A recently launched startup peddling wildly expensive, artisan plungers caught our attention because the whole thing is giant joke, and a really good one at that. The unnamed comedian behind this faux company Re Made goes to extremes to mirror every detail of a real company called Best Made , but replaces their main product line of “American Feeling Axes” with “American Master Plunger.” Perhaps the parody is to suggest that Best Made is going a bit too far with their heritage marketing and upscale pricing – you be the judge.
