Futurefarms Spacepot Grow System

A hydroponics growing system for the masses, Futurefarms’ Spacepot takes all the work and maintenance out of growing fresh herbs. There’s little soil involved; instead, the plants grow bigger and faster in nutrient-rich water since crucial resources are more easily accessible. So using a Spacepot is as easy as filling it with a water and nutrient mix, planting seeds in the Growpod’s growth medium, and then waiting, no watering necessary. A…

Two integrated baking stones above and beneath the upper chamber absorb the heat and pass it onto the pizza (or whatever…

Millo Smoothie Maker

Dubbed a smart blender, the Millo Smoothie Maker promises to be the best designed blender you’ve ever laid eyes on. The small blender’s Air Drive system employs magnets to power the blade, eliminating three quarters of the noise of traditional blenders (and one of their biggest annoyances). Moreover the blending chamber and the cap that seals it — which also contains the blade — screw together and aren’t physically attached…

STOA Replay Arcade Cabinets

In this day and age where gaming is a literal profession for some, nearly as much attention is given to video game systems of old as it is to newer games.

These retro gaming cabinets are premium and bespoke, above all else, and feature seamless designs, high quality paint jobs, and a…

The Ferrari x Poltrona Frau Cockpit Desk Chair is to your run-of-the-mill desk chair what a Ferrari’s seat is to a Hyundai’s: better, and certainly more luxurious. Available in two versions — the high-backrest President (shown, left) and the smaller Executive (right) — both swivel, can recline, and be raised and lowered, but more importantly are inspired from the ergonomics of competitive racing seats despite the fact that the only…

PCBJ Beef Jerky Candle

Your man cave isn’t lacking in scents like potpourri and cherry blossom. So instead of grabbing a candle that smells like the above (or other, similarly emasculating scents) try a PCBJ Beef Jerky Candle. The soy wax candle is the result of a collaboration between People’s Choice Beef Jerky and Chicago-based Wax & Wick, pairing a long-lasting (up to 60 hours or so) soy wax with a sturdy wooden…

Creek Cutler Repurposed File Knives

The knurling on the knife handle and base of the blade isn’t just for show. It’s there because Creek Cutler’s Repurposed File Knives are, as their name indicates, reborn after serving a life in the form of a farrier or metal working file — though this patterning also conveniently serves to increase your grip on what’s an otherwise very sharp knife. The to-be-scrapped carbon steel files are forged, reheated, and…

One exception: the Modpool Shipping Container Pool. Because it’s built into a modified and windowed shipping container this pool is both easier to set up and dismantle, and doesn’t require the pouring of concrete or the…
