kawamura-ganjavian’s Binpan

I discovered the BINPAN a while ago and since both Jim and I share a love for simple, functional and well-designed products, especially the ones that make our daily lives just a bit easier, I simply had to share…BINPAN is a dustbin when it stands up, and a dustpan when it lies down; a very convenient hybrid for office and domestic environments. Created by the design and architecture studio Kawamura-ganjavian, which was established in 2000 by Key Portilla-Kawamura and Ali Ganjavian…they are located in Madrid…click here to find out more about them and to see more of their work!

Project Never


…Rejection never felt this good….We LOVE the idea of Project Never….It is a free awards competition created by graphic designers for graphic designers. According to them, “Thousands of effective designs die each day – often for good reason. At the same time, successful designers and agencies generate many worthy ideas for each project or campaign, only one of which gets chosen for wider audiences. Project Never honors the most creative design concept that never reached production.” Please find out more about them by visiting their site here!
