Awesome Accessories for Techno Days
For today’s gift inspiration we’re going straight to Paris, and one of my favourite design studios, the fabulous AK-LH. Their latest collection for the 2012-13 season is ‘Techno’; a series of homewares and accessories that “pays tribute to the prehistory of our favourite medias”. The humble cassette tape, boom box, TV test screen, and record player now decorate an array of unique, stylish gift products. A little bit geeky, and a little bit retro, the designs recreate a few of our favourite technological instruments from the 80’s with bright colours and sharp graphics. I love the clash, created by the use of tech graphics on soft cushions, aprons and oven mitts.
Featured gifts: Techno cushions are available in three sizes: 40cm x 30cm, 35 €; 50cm x 35cm, 45 €; 60cm x 45cm, 69 €; Techno Aprons, 52 €; Techno Oven Mitt, 25 €; Techno Pencil Cases, 22 €; and Techno Pouches, 19 €.
