Every week, we bring you a little roundup of things we’ve seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in The Loop! 

This week, we’re excited to finally get to see the finished results of Japanese artist Misaki Kawai’s colourful collaboration with high street store, Tiger! Intended to encourage play for children and adults, we can’t wait to see up close how Misaki has translated her art into fun products.

 

And speaking of things that surprise and delight adults and children, what about THESE? Made by Straight Line Designs and inspired by the postmodern architecture of Palm Springs, these miniature, wall-mountable butterfly houses are designed, not just as dolls’ houses for grown-ups, but as functional shelf storage for small items like keys, specs, mugs - that sort of thing. Pretty dreamy.

 

 

This is just about the cutest thing we’ve seen this week. And we’ve seen kittens AND babies. Find out more about about the Danboard Cheero portable device charger at Lazy Oaf.

 

 

We paid a visit to graphic arts festival, Pick Me Up this week. Isabel + Helen,Alec Doherty, Dan Singer and The Clay Collective were among our favourite bits. If you’re nearby and want to take a look for yourself, the event runs at Somerset House, London until 2nd May.

Now, this wasn't intentional, but it seems we've looped in to some serious good vibes this week. From dreamy inflatable sculptures, cats on billboards and a teeny tiny pro-skateboarder, get set to feel good!
