In the midst of this holiday season and a deluge of gift guides we’ve decided to do something a little different. Herman Miller has a long rich history of working with designers – one that continues today with contemporary designers like Ayako Takase and Cutter Hutton of Kaiju Studios (they are the clever creatives behind the elegant Airia desk and media cabinet). I’ve asked them for their unique take on what to give…and receive. Today we’ll look at giving and tomorrow check back to see what they’d like to receive.
SodaStream Soda Maker: We got one this summer and it has been the best thing in the ktichen. Any sparkling water lover could switch to this system from buying bottled water. It is convenient, green and tastes great.
New Harvest Coffee Beans: It’s always nice to have some local flavor with gifts. These beans are tasty, organic and from a local Rhode Island coffee roaster. We like our favorite cafe’s blend – White Electric Dark Roast.
Nike+ iPod Sport Kit: We’d like to give this to every runner friend. We not only tracks your running but also has agreat online community. Check it out at NikePlus.com.
Compostable/reusable Skoy kitchen cloth: We use this Skoy Cloth as a replacement for a sponge and paper towel. It’s green and it has fun patterns!
The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan: This is such a great book on the reality of the food we eat every day.
