These amazing color-blocked cutting boards are lovingly hand-made in Philadelphia by Lostine out of locally grown Sycamore. The beautiful finish with the added detail of the leather handles and the bright pops of color make for one awesome piece of wood.
They are currently for sale on Anthropologie’s with prices ranging from $128 — $248; a little high for something you cut on, but if you can afford it, they are worth every penny.
I can still appreciate this brilliant little tea infuser even though I’m an avid coffee drinker. The Tea Diver, produced by Korean design studio Ablepartners, is the perfect friend for your cup of tea. The platinum silicon and stainless steel infuser looks like a squat little diver complete with an air tank handle! The Tea Diver is currently on sale at the DesignBoom Shop for $20.
The diver would go perfectly with the Tea Sub infuser by Ototo!
London based design agency Unreal created this amazing brand and all of its associated collateral for their local supermarket, The People’s Supermarket, a member owned and managed nonprofit co-op started in 2010 by noted chef Arthur Potts-Dawson.
The brand is strong and vibrant, using yellow as its main color setting it apart from the boring visuals of the larger chain markets. The brand features a sub-brand, The People’s Kitchen, a place in the store where people can purchase low-cost high quality prepared foods.
The enamelware by Falcon Enamelware is an integral part of American design history, although you may have never known who made it.

To go along with the release, Falcon Enamelware hired NYC based design firm Morse Studio to completely rebrand the company and its products. The amazing product photography is done by the talented Sam Stonewell with food styling by Kate Mccullough.
Fuseproject has created a beautiful product sphere for The Nature Conservancy Talamanca Cacao that includes branding, packaging, and the development of a custom grinder/stirring stick used to brew the cocoa. The Bribri women of Talamanca, Costa Rica use sustainable farming practices, growing all of their prized cacao in the natural eco-system. Unlike traditional monoculture farming, the cacao plants grow in their native habitats, surrounded by immense biodiversity.
Their main product is 100% cacao (no suger added) that is hand formed in hard pucks. Fuseproject has designed a custom grinder/stirring stick that is used to grind the puck for brewing. The grinder features a micro-blade grinder attached to a wooden handle that has a built-in hook for hanging it on the lip of the mug. The packaging is all created from the burlap bags the beans are dried in.
