Awesome new products from Phonographic Unlimited

If you’re into music, Phonographic Unlimited has the goods for you. If you’re into vinyl, this place is going to help you empty your bank account. They currently offer the genius Seeing Sound t-shirts, the simple & beautiful Pitch Control modular record shelves, & two styles of awesome 45 adapters (one in wood and one laser cut from old records.)

Phonographic Unlimited, and its products, are the brainchild of DJ / Designer Matt Braun.

From Phonographic Unlimited:

Phonographic Unlimited is a small company that produces well-designed products influenced by music and DJ cultures. The beginning product line includes T-shirts, shelving and 45 adapters.

The company is currently based in Philadelphia and has a flexible business model that will allow it to scale up or even relocate and retain a locally produced production strategy. This is possible by designing products that can be made in small quantities using easily accessible traditional and digital fabrication methods.

Seeing Sound

Seeing Sound T-shirts are your favorite songs visualized by translating the song into a 3d CAD file, then tracing the contour lines & editing them to create the final graphic.

Pitch Control

The slight pitch allows for records, books or magazines to lean naturally and prevent warping. The simple geometry and modernist aesthetic allows these to be configured in many ways to suit a variety of shelving needs and even as seating! Very few shelving systems for home use have large enough openings for records or can withstand the weight. The shelves are handmade in Philadelphia using high quality birch plywood and stainless steel fasteners.

This very limited edition run of wooden global adapters are lovingly crafted from walnut using both traditional and digital milling techniques. They are then hand finished and packaged in a black faux suede pouch. The vinyl are adapters are laser cut from junk 12″s in the traditional “3 snakes” style.

Project 7, using coffee to change the world

Project 7 is a new business that features great coffee paired with a strive to make real, substantive change in the world. Project 7 donates more than 50% of the profits of each sale to a charity that serves a need corresponding to the name of blend your buy. The coffee is all purchased fair-trade directly from the growers. There are 7 coffee blends, HEAL the sick, SAVE the earth, HOUSE the homeless, FEED the hungry, QUENCH the thirst, TEACH them well, & HOPE for peace.

From Project 7:

Simply put, Project 7 exists to give. We are a cause-related company that makes every day consumer goods, like bio-bottled water, gum, mints and coffee. We aren’t asking you to buy more stuff, just change the products that you already buy.

For every purchase of a Project 7 product, some good is done in seven areas of need – Feed the Hungry, Heal the Sick, Hope for Peace, House the Homeless, Quench the Thirsty, Teach them Well and Save the Earth. Non-profit organizations supporting any of these seven areas of need can submit applications to Project 7.

Never get the dreaded spoon-drop or spoon-drowning again.

This solves the problem of the dreaded Spoon-drop or the even worse, Spoon-drowning. I don’t know about you but I hate spoon-diving. Ok, I’m done.

This gorgeous set of 2 bowls with matching spoons are perfect for eating in front of the tele or whilst reading a book. Its spoon fits in the handle of the bowl, so the two can be held with just one hand. Very practical when you’re not eating at the dinner table.
