Some more stuff we spotted at 100% Design Tokyo was Snaefrid Porsteins' Dodo Bird Candle (using the candle as a metaphor for the extinguishing of the bird - the wax version also slowly disappearing when in use), the presentation of the Knit Cap Cup 2008 (anyone can hand in a design for a knit cap which will then be on offer for sale on their website - have a look if you would like to hand in a design, 320 different ones are already part of their range), Sky Design's bed site lamp (that switches of once you stopped reading and put the book back into the slot), Vik Prjonsdottir'sSealpelts (a blanket suit made of 100% sustainable Islandic wool and certainly the hottest stuff you can wear this winter) and the nice presentation of the "handmade in Japan" Scarabike.
With Snaefrid Porsteins' perforated calendar the days literally disappear by being ripped out once they are gone, the unconventional Techno Gym by The Wellness Company turns the workout torture gear into a presentable piece for your living room, Tomsuma Alt's Spinning Slipper is a device helping to communicate people and have some physical fun together (one turns the slipper wheel while the other one tries to avoid to be hit), Cozy & Cozy presented their inflatable Outerior Furniture for Urban Space, Get Framed is a mailable paper picture frame in an envelope and The Nothing Design Group's ceramic cups have a sound stand on their handles when drying.
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
