Singularity 2

Singularity 2

It’s like, how much more black could this be… and the answer is none. None more black. This conversation piece incorporates a superblack nanotube surface to absorb virtually all light, resulting in an extremely flat, matte-finish object that looks like a gateway to nothingness, no matter what angle you view it from.

Artblox Sound Wave Blocks

Artblox Sound Wave Blocks

Artblox can take the waveform from a musical passage, words, or any other short sound, and etch it onto a block of clear acrylic. They can be personalized with your choice of color scheme, and an optional QR code which lets you play back the recorded sound via a mobile device.

Tabletop Spectrum Analyzer

Tabletop Spectrum Analyzer

Spectrum analyzers are a nifty way to visualize music. But maker Platinum Kit decided the displays that come with graphic equalizers were too small, so he built a jumbo version with colorful LEDs placed behind acrylic blocks. He reversed the lows and highs, but it’s still super cool.

Bent Acrylic Desk Organizers

Bent Acrylic Desk Organizers

We love the retro/mod style of Time4Circle’s desk organizers, made from sheets of acrylic bent into an S-curve. They’re perfect for pens, pencils, smartphones, eyeglasses and more. A felt pad inside protects the acrylic from pen and pencil points. Choose from a variety of colors.

OLED Dandelion

OLED Dandelion

One of designer Takao Inoue’s artistic goals is to capture fleeting moments and preserve them. His unique tabletop curiosity does just that, freezing a puffy dandelion about to release its seeds inside an acrylic block, illuminated in space with a smooth, OLED light source.

3D Cube Chess Set

3D Cube Chess Set

Architect Michael Bidner and designer Elke Adam-Bidner’s unique chess set looks like something out of a modern art museum’s collection. The LED backlit board is crafted from 64 varied height cubes in alternating red and white, along with a set of minimal chess pieces.

3D Illusion Animal Lamps

3D Illusion Animal Lamps

Artist Cyril Bagnost presents a cool take on 3D acrylic illusion lamps, with whimsical low-poly designs cut precisely to the outline of the animal. The bulldog and panther are pretty sweet, but we also dig his Jeff Koons-inspired balloon dog. Lamps are powered via USB.

Michael Jordan Acrylic Chandeliers

Michael Jordan Acrylic Chandeliers

Artist Michael Murphy created these cool hanging pieces for the Nike Store Berlin which look like Michael Jordan when viewed head on, but disintegrate into important icons of his career when viewed from the side.

Liquid Glacial Table

Liquid Glacial Table

Architect Zaha Hadid’s see-through acrylic table looks looks like a melting glacial formation with its drippy icicle legs. See it up close at London’s David Gill Galleries through 5/30/12.
