This week's picks:
+ Claesson Koivisto Rune's Tokyo Takushii rugs at David Report blog, "The exhibition started with a fascination for taxi cars in Tokyo and all three have a lot of photos from a lot of trips to the city. Out of hundreds of photos ten was chosen as sources of inspiration for a series of carpets in limited edition."
+ DesignWS.com's coverage of Object Fair Rotterdam showing "the latest developments of unique, or limited edition functional objects of international designers." That's Ted Noten jewelry above.
+ HABITS studio's Minimini lights for Luceplan's elementi collection at designboom, "its miniature structure is only 2.5 cm in diameter and houses an adjustment system allowing an easy focusing of the light source".
+ Cat Merrick's Drip Plates at design*sponge, "Cat gathered porcelain plates with winter scenes and sandblasted them in drip patterns that allude to melting", the drips appear to reveal the image beneath.
+ Hella Jongerius' patchwork wall hangings for the 2009 IKEA PS Collection at design.nl.
+ sallyTV's new Tests Out Products (With her Designer Friends) So You Don't Have To TOPWHDFSYDHT feature. Sample quote; "The colors are too garish for my taste, and make the glasses seem cheap. I hate multi-colored sets, unless I'm at a cocktail party hosted by Barbie."
