‘The Accurate’ by Mr Jones Watches

The Accurate | Mr Jones Watches

‘This is the most accurate wristwatch you can buy – the hour hand reads “remember”, the minute hand “you will die”.

The dial and rim of the glass are mirrored, so the wearer is reflected in the watch face (so there is no ambiguity about who the message is aimed at!) The Accurate is a link to the tradition of the memento mori – an object designed to remind us that life is brief and that we should seize the moment while we are here.’

Price: US$119

Reiko Kaneko at Milan Design Week 09

Dapple Light | Reiko Kaneko

UK designer Reiko Kaneko will launch her ‘Dapple Light’ at Milan Design Week.

‘Inspired by a hanging disco ball reflecting and redirecting the early morning sunshine inside, ‘Dapple light’ tries to recreate this impact. When lit, mottled light bursts out of the seemingly regular wood veneer shade. But hidden from view, small glass mirrors line the inside of an Ovangkol veneer shade. Most effective in a darkened space, ‘Dapple light’ swathe the surrounding area with an explosion of light.

Dapple light will be launched at Milan Salone Satellite fair (22-27 April) with the Ovangkol table for manufacturers and visitors alike.’

‘Fabriano’ – a waste paper bin


Milan Design Week 09: Young designers Riccardo Nannini, Domenico Orefice and Emanuele Pizzolorusso present ‘Fabriano’, a waste paper basket made of recycled paper at exhibition Dismettiamola! in Milan this week.

From the designers:
‘Fabriano’ is a basket made entirely of recycled paper. The thin layers consist of 50 disposable bags and when the bin is full you just have to extract the bag and throw it away, the layer beneath is ready to collect more paper. The shape of a ‘muffin cup’ is easy to produce and allows to obtain the shape of a classic office bin, as well as it gives a personality to it.’
