I’ve always been a big fan of NJ based Orbit Gallery, and it’s founder Harry Saylor. Many items in his pop-culture themed art gallery are now available for sale on his website, www.orbitgalleryspace.com.

In the 1950â€™s Charles & Ray Eames began a mission to create furniture for the masses, furniture that would be considered functional, elegant and affordable to common people. Their furniture has since proven longevity, but has become synonymous with high design at premium prices. With a new edition of commemorative stamps that honor their legacy, Eames has a real shot now at becoming the household name it has long deserved to be. Charles & Ray Eames stamps can be purchased online from the United States Postal Service. Affordable reproductions Charles and Ray Eames furniture can be purchased from Inmod.
Iâ€™ve always been a big fan of chairs that â€œplug in.â€ Chairs like the stereo Egg Chair by Thor Larsen, and recent productions of the Ball Chair that integrate iPod compatibility have revolutionize the way we spend our valuable lounging time. But here comes a chair, the Mind Chair that â€œplugs YOU in,â€ revolutionizing the way we learn. Based on the principles of sensory substitution, the Mind Chair by Beta Tank incorporates a video camera and a grid of 400 solenoids into the seat back, allowing you to close your eyes and experience information not through seeing, but by vibration. While this technology has been researched in helping the blind, the concept of seeing images internally opens up many questions. The Mind Chair currently a prototype, however, a polypropylene version has also been developed with the young ones in mind, â€œsuggesting a future in which every class room makes use of our ability to see with our skin.â€
Nomad, from Mio Culture, is the ultimate modular architectural system. One set consists of 24 modules and is available in 9 different colors. By combining multiple sets of modules, one can build pretty much any type of free standing structure like sculptural screens, partitions and even rooms. After youâ€™ve built a room, you can chill in it with a clear conscience, because on top of everything, these things are made of recycled double-wall cardboard.
