Our week around the web:
1. Culture Label Who doesn’t love a well-curated museum shop? Is it just me or do you wish you could start your museum visit here? It’s like a reverse dinner – dessert and then the main. For all of us who like their sweets check out British Culture Label. They’ve trawled 70 museum shops for cool design objects. Where to start? Type office into the search box for some excellent home office accessories.
2. You, Me and The Royal We Closer to home Brooklyn-based Oliver Jeffers, Mac Premo and Aaron Ruff sell a variety of designs including #10 pencils emblazoned with “These Machines Kill Facists”. After all, the pen is mightier than the sword. Where to start: If you can get beyond the pencils try the hand-drawn map of the world. Hang it in your home office to remind yourself of where you’ll be on your next holiday.
4. The Contaminated Immerse yourself in all things geeky. The tagline is spot on – this is a cool place for weird and amazing articles. Where to start: A house built from Lego – because it’s weird and cool.
5. Gizmodo If you hadn’t heard about this blog you have now (yep, these are the guys at the heart of the iPhone drama). What hasn’t been said is that it’s a great blog if you are even slightly interested in technology and enjoy a cheeky tone. Where to start: Their take on architecture section is always interesting.
