mr. wilson towel holder by loony design

I think this little suction cup wall hook, designed by Dominik Langhammer for Germany’s intriguing Loony Design, is terrifically useful as well as cute and hilarious. And the fact that its name is Mr. Wilson just makes me laugh even harder — so formal! As you can see, it’s made out of a tennis ball and has most excellent grommet eyes. The functional mouth serves to hold your hand towel, keychain, magic bean collection – or whatever else you think could fit in his mighty mouth.

FYI, Loony Design is a joint project of the Industrial Design degree course at the State Academy for Fine Arts in Stuttgart and the Evangelical Charitable Mission in Baden. Students from the Academy develop exclusive designs for everyday objects, which are produced by people with mental disorders living and working in centers run by the mission. That’s quite a provocative name for this venture if you ask me, but the collaboration has produced many other playful and functional design work.

Loony ships within Germany and also to other EU countries if you are over on the continent. If you’re in the States, try the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. And see a lot more for yourself right here on the Loony Design site.


the economy, as seen by marc johns

Whimsical and surreal Canadian artist Marc Johns has his finger on the pulse of the world, in my humble opinion. Here is his take on the state of the economy (which, unfortunately, doesn’t necessarily apply to just one country right at this moment).

sexy people (blog)

Despite the fact that I have about 200 blogs I subscribe to, I also happily live in a vacuum, or a cave, depending on your point of view. Yeah, I read them when I can get to them, but I secretly rely on a few select interesting people out there to show me wtf is going on in the world and also wtf is the latest and greatest. Lauren, I do believe you’ve have hit the jackpot winner for me today. Behold below only a tiny bit of the content from the Sexy People blog, which I truly believe is making the world a better place by presenting “a celebration of the perfect portrait.”
