If I was going to picture a perfect bachelor pad this Industrial Loft By Diego Revollo ($TBA) would be at the top of my list. The loft is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil and features a style which can only be described as Industrial Chic. The main focal points are the black girders that support the loft area and make up the stairs, and the floor to ceiling windows in the living room. The metal in the unit is softened with plush area rugs and the wooden diningroom table, make the whole feel very comfortable. Surround Speakers throughout the loft make this space perfect for entertaining.
The NeoLucida ($47) probably won't be available again until 2014, but it is just too elegant of a product to not do a write-up. As of this writing the NeoLucida still has 27 days left on its Kickstarter and has already sold out 2x's. Simply put, the NeoLucida is a drawing tool, that has a prism on the end of an adjustable arm. The prism projects whatever is in front of you onto your paper, which allows you to create photo realistic drawings. This technique is centuries old and is thought to be the exact way some of the most well known masterpieces were created. Check out this video of how the NeoLucida works.[symple_divider style="solid" margin_top="20px" margin_bottom="20px"]Update: The NeoLucida Kickstarter campaign has closed to overwhelming success. They are now offering pre-orders to individuals who pledged $12+. They'll open pre-orders to those who pledged $1 & $2 shortly. By early December they expect the NeoLucida to be commercially available to the public. Sign-up for their newsletter for notifications on availability. Great job guys and good luck. Update: The NewLucida is now available through Amazon. One caveat is that it only ships within the U.S. and won't ship internationally until Spring 2014.
The Consult design studio specializes in product development for small design businesses. They help small businesses bring their ideas to reality. They've recently created their own product line called Make and its first product is the Make Bike Rack ($180). The Make Bike Rack makes it ecstatically pleasing to store your bike inside. The Make Bike Rack is made out of solid wood, either walnut or maple with custom bronze screw caps to hide the mounting screws. The rack can accommodate bikes with a maximum handlebar width of 19". It's more of a piece of art than a functional rack.
If you're looking for a sophisticated bag for the Spring you should check out the Rag & Bone Sporty Grey Backpack ($350). The shell is made from nylon Cordura 1000 denier fabric, the bottom is wrapped in sueded leather, and the exterior compartments are zippered with heavy duty RIRI Decor zippers. Additional features include a padded interior laptop pocket, phone pocket, and pen holders.
