The Funkiest Patterns at Svenskt Tenn

While in Stockholm for the launch of Volvo's new XC90, we took some time to peruse the Scandinavian design shops that litter the streets of the Swedish city. While many of these stores and studios contain the same minimal aesthetic you'd expect from the Ikean utopia, there's one where you can go if you want to take ... continue reading

Limited Edition Rangefinder Bottlehook SHOP

The rugged but simple Bottlehook has been our keychain choice since it was first designed. After carrying a few different variations, we’re excited to announce this limited edition that’s only available from select retailers (Cool Material included). Still designed in New England and cast in Indiana, but featuring a blackened finish on top of solid brass. Over time, the hook will patina and let a bit of that brass shine through to give yours its own unique appearance, kind of like what happened with old rangefinder cameras. You won’t find this limited edition version many other places, so grab yours here as only 250 have been made. ... check it out

In a packed amphitheater in Sweden last Wednesday, you might have felt like you were at a Katy Perry concert. Piercing lights cut across a crowd of fans all holding up their phones to capture their next Instagram post. Giant screens blanketed the stage, and video projections gave life to inanimate objects. Only this ... continue reading
