The Layers series (founded by Haarlem-based Studio David Graas) includes six designs ranging from €29 to €269.

The ‘vase-maker’ above is €129, excluding bottles and flowers. Superb value, you’ll no doubt agree.


Viscous liquid condiment lovers – the era of bottle-pounding is at an end.

Behold – LiquiGlide™

MIT PhD candidate Dave Smith and his team of mechanical engineers and nano-technologists at the Varanasi Research Group spent two months devising LiquiGlide, a ‘super-slippery’ coating which makes the insides of the bottle so frictionless that the sludgy goo inside just slides out like water. The results are astonishing – and any burger and chips fan out there should prepare to be amazed.
