Over the past few months, I’ve been trolling eBay for fantastic deals on graphic novels and comic book lots. I’ve bought so many books over the past few months that I’m now in the market for a new bookshelf.
This has to be one of the most organic-looking watch designs that I’ve seen in a long time. The Grow watch was designed by the London-based Shiro Studio for the Italian design house of Alessi. The patterns are supposed to evoke the act of growing, but they also remind me of ripples in a pond.
Combining two of life’s little pleasures, these handmade chocolates look just like the app icons on my new iPad.

How’d you like one of these organic glowing orbs hanging from your ceiling? The intricate Laluna chandelier uses brightly lit, intertwined strands of fiber optics to light up your room.
Designed by German artist Steffen Bauer for Crescent lighting, the Laluna fiber optic lamp connects to a bright halogen (which changes color with a turning color wheel) or color-changing LED light source which can be mounted in the ceiling or in another room.

This amazing floor lamp uses strands of brilliant electroluminescent tubes to form into an nearly infinite number of flowing organic shapes.
Designed by Jesus Felipe and Silvia Grimaldi of UK-based Nimble Critters, the ETree lamp is more of an interactive sculpture than simply a lamp.
