Cool Design
Plus: Every Person in New York

Guggenheim Lamp
Lamp or Lego, the Gugg always looks good. $55

Chip Paperclip Holder
Rodrigo Torres, for Alessi, had the clever notion of turning stored paper clips into bird feathers. $57

Shoe Rack
Not the cheapest solution for shoe storage, but this stainless steel rack, from which your Rocket Dogs seem to float, works well for space-challenged NY apartments.

Alphabet Bags
We like the simplicity of these boldly graphic cotton totes from the UK. $16-$30, plus international shipping.

Cassette Tote
If you're of a certain age, 8-tracks are a punchline. If 8-tracks were before your time, you'll find humor in this plastic carryall. $10

Birds of a Feather Mobile
Mobiles have fallen out of favor in the past couple of decades, though this walnut veneer depiction of birds makes us wonder why. $82

Alyson Fox Dinnerware
We were fans of this artist/designer even before we saw these irresistible plates, bowls, and mugs. Shipping in April, $72/4-piece set

Gentle Touch
Flexible arm, touch-sensitive control, a mid-century vibe,
and a modest price = done. $34

This tajine/stoneware cross works upside-down and right-side up, depending on how much food you're cooking. $59

Giant Vintage Dominoes
Here's a throwback with no particular function except to add a fun touch. Approx. $15, plus international shipping

Quiet Sky
These beauties of porcelain and glass were entered into a Japanese competition by the artist Misa Tanaka and they're not for sale,
at least not yet. But they sure are pretty.

Jason Polan started Every Person in New York in March of 2008. He plans on working on the project until it is finished. Look for Every Person in New York on Tuesdays in MUG and daily at Jason's site.
