Don’t let your laundry basket take up more space than necessary. UnHampered provides all the function of your average laundry basket — and then some! – and can fold flat when not in use. When folded, UnHampered can be easily stored between your washer and drier, under your sink, or any other place where you have an extra inch or two of room to spare. Unfolded, you’ve got a sturdy deluxe basket with multiple handles and storage compartments. Once you’re done with your wash, just fold it up and put it away for next time. Buy here.

Norm Glass Kettle Teapot uniquely embraces the meeting of two traditions – the Asian zen philosophy and modern Scandinavian design. A special feature is the teapot’s transparency that grants a visual experience of the tea and stimulates the senses of sight, touch and smell alike. As a fine design detail the tea egg is placed in the centre of the pot and is easily raised by pulling the attached silicon string when the tea is ready for serving.

The result is a kind of loose, lattice effect which is supported by steel mesh legs and brace. The chair is a study in joinery and interlocking parts, and is being produced by Thai furniture manufacturer PLATO. (via Designboom)

As part of the campaign to promote its new series How Hard Can It Be? to be released in autumn this year. National Geographic sent a team of engineers and scientists to the Mojave desert to recreate the home of Mr. Fredricksen’s Up animated film from Disney Pixar.
