ABITAX Phone Strap
Accessories: May 8, 2006

Abitax Phone Strap
Already known for its colorful designs -- as well as interesting choice of product categories, going from purses and portable ashtrays all the way to fly fishing equipment -- ABITAX has recently added a new collection of phone straps that certainly fits right in with their growing line of accessories. Available in 12 colors (pictured here are "Cobalt Blue" and "Coral"), they're made of genuine leather and come with either a smooth or nubuck surface. Simple and elegant, just the way we like it.

AtoZ Cafe
Cafes/Bars: May 8, 2006

AtoZ Cafe
If you find yourself in Tokyo, one thing you'll quickly realize is that there is no lack of stylish cafes, and so new ones are now trying to push the creative envelope in order to stand out. Enter the recently opened AtoZ Cafe, a collaborative project between artist Yoshitomo Nara and design unit Graf. An unlikely rustic setting -- especially unlikely when you consider that the cafe is found on the fifth floor of a building in Aoyama -- welcomes you in what comes off as a sweet and homey environment, with the majority of the tables surrounding a "house" that acts as a sort of showroom/exhibition space for some of Nara's works. Add a well designed menu (decorated of course by Nara, and which you can keep as a souvenir) and tasty selections, and you get a new Aoyama winner in the cafe sweepstakes.

Furniture: May 1, 2006

The Nextmaruni line of chairs -- a collection of 12 pieces from 12 designers -- introduced last year by Hiroshima-based furniture company Maruni Wood Industries has been gaining more and more attention, culminating with showing in Milano this year for their new 2006 collection. The theme from last year's series, "small chairs in dialogue with the Japanese aesthetics," continues, but they promise a refined update that makes each chair even more comfortable to sit on. With names that include the likes of Naoto Fukasawa, you know you're in for something good.
