We caught Boris Gautier's work on It's Nice That this morning, and just loved the bold and playful nature of the poster design and graphics.

Originally designed and patented in 1915 by Alexander Samuelson, a Swedish glass blower, the iconic Coca-Cola bottle first hit the market in 1916. Although Coca-Cola started in a drug store in 1886, by 1899 it had begun being bottled and had already been offered strictly as a soft drink for the decade before. The shape of the bottle was said to have been inspired by the shape of the cocoa bean. The unique grooves allowed Samuelson to patent the design and made it harder for anyone to produce and offer an imitation version of the soft drink.

Snow Peak recently released an updated series of their camp lights to go along side their other wonderfully designed outdoor gear. They truly execute the idea of thoughtful, minimal, and useful designs driven to accomplish their end use. The pieces are void of any unnecessary ornamentation and exemplify a modern aesthetic not found in many other outdoor products like it.

Ten years ago, my perception of the potential of a retail shopping experience was forever skewed when I strolled into the newly opened Mollusk Surf Shop, located in the Outer Sunset neighborhood of San Francisco. Well-curated products, art adorning the walls, navigable layout, basically the whole package was thoughtfully executed. However, the undeniable jewel in the space was the stylish treehouse occupying an entire corner of the store. Unlike your stereotypical treehouse, this particular montage was fabricated with attitude and stylish funk.
