Industrial designer Alberto Ghirardelli, who runs an eponymous design studio in Milan, has an undeniably quirky style.
His Jetlag wall clock (designed after his girlfriend temporarily moved to Japan) covers two time zones, and can be hung in either portrait or landscape positions. Made of laser-cut metal, the clock is faced in white paint that you can write the names of the locations on.
The Intempo wall clock isn't hung on a wall—it sticks to walls. It's made of "polyurethane gel, an intrinsically adhesive material that can be attached to the wall without the need for nails or hooks," Ghirardello writes. "This feature makes it possible to fix the clock in unusual places: on the glass panels of a shower cabin, on doors, wardrobe doors, windows, kitchen tiles and bathroom mosaic, etc."
This Ooo product (gotta love the name, given the form) can accommodate different sizes of lever-style door handles. It prevents the handles from slamming into the wall.
Macro is a small magnifying mirror for those who feel the need, the need to tweeze. It's got a little area to rest the tweezers on, and is made of the same sticky polyurethane gel as the Intempo, allowing you to stick it anywhere.
Trick is a small cutting board with a mezzaluna knife that integrates into the board with magnets.
Ghirardelli's also got a killer Instagram, populated both with objects he designed…
