RIP, Richard Sapper, father of the Tizio

sapperRichard Sapper designed one of the most popular lamps of all time, the Tizio. That’s it on the upper left of the photo above. Which was taken at Moss, by the way. Just saying. Sapper also designed a nearly as popular espresso maker for Alessi, the 9090, and later an electric version, which is also on the wall, just above his right arm. He also designed the IBM Thinkpad and famously said no to Steve Jobs who wanted him to come to Apple. Click on the photo to go the Times obit. RIP, sir.

And the cool item of the month is, yes, DOG TOYS

Picture of Dogs | Home Puppies HD Wallpaper Backgrounds FreeOur knitted wool toys used to be for human children, but really, that’s so 2013. We have cleverly repositioned said toys and are pleased to announce our new, small, exclusive, and possibly somewhat familiar, line of DOG TOYS. Perfect for chewing and slavering over and tossing in the air and catching, and other things dogs do with their toys.  There are three models, each one high on the canine appeal rating chart. (Proof on file.) Click on The Dog to see all three at mossPOP, a dog friendly website.

mosspopdoghouseIt’s the mossPOP.com warehouse sale which we’re calling “WE’RE ONLY HUMAN” because we’re selling things we kind of forgot we had, and just found again.  Like this Michael Young doghouse which looks like it was 3D printed by The Jetsons.  And many other items of similar provenance and peculiarity and cheapness.  Click on the doghouse to see the Rima Suqi piece in the Times.

POP! Lisa Roberts has a new book

And it has POP in the title, so how can you go wrong? Get it now from soul-killing AMAZON.  And you can get an animated sneak peak, which was created by our other best friend Chalkie Davies, by clicking on that cover . Prepare for fun.
