R, that place is looking great! Closing on a place myself in the next couple of weeks... let the renovations begin! Having all of the flooring demos before we move in.... anyway, I'm looking forward to a "chair binge" when we finish ;-)

On Ray's office chair tip, I bought a bunch of these Knoll Generation chairs for our office and i have been very happy with them. I love parking in this thing:

A few years ago I did a gig at a company with a cash-cow product and money to burn. The entire company cafeteria had Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs, at least a hundred of them. I mean the real ones that cost $600 a piece, not the knock-offs.

Since years I am debating a 7series Chair with swivel base in black as new
desk chair, here in the office.

Would set us back 1335. €, something like
1.600,-$.

I never buy copies, but I don't smoke dope anymore, either....

I agree with the first post....The Kindle. I wish I could have had that in my industrial design portfolio. I use my Kindle every day, still haven't upgraded.

Only problem I have is your butt feels very cold in the morning when you sit on them naked. :lol:

nice choice... other than the sitting on them naked part. I don't have any of those, but I'm always amazed at how light they are even though I intellectually understand their materiality.

love the lug on the left "sciz" that keeps the blade level on the cutting table.

Just picked up one of these Rimowa pieces for my recent trip to Asia. Awesome. Beautifully constructed and full of great, honest details.

One of the very few things that looks better with a nice patina. They had one in the store that was 30 years old with tons of stickers and dents that had been through 2 plane crashes (dunno how that happened!). Even better looking!
