Nick Rawcliffe is a London-based designer, inventor, engineer and general creative that creates unique products using innovative materials and processes. Operating as Raw Studio, he produces some of coolest, most creative furniture, lighting and accessories we’ve ever seen, but the Raw Studio Chess Set is easily our favorite. Each of the thirty two pieces is a ring made of heat-treated, oxidized and hand-polished stainless designed to stack together to create one long roll of chess pieces. The board is made of leather that’s hand cut and sewn to create tactile difference between suede and skin sides to differentiate between the white and black squares. It’s designed to be rolled up and stuffed into the tube created by the pieces, which makes this the perfect portable chess set.
Your morning routine is begging for Parachute’s towels. What makes them different? Well, Parachute uses an innovative process called Aerocotton Technology, which blows air through the cotton fibers as they’re spun. That means extra fluffy towels that dry quickly. Plus, the towels are made exclusively from premium long-staple Egyptian cotton, which is the best around. Soft, absorbent, and quick-drying—Parachute’s towels offer everything you want. Your new favorite part of a long, hot shower? Drying off.
