The Nooka Zirc is not only eye-catching, but also practical. For those unfamiliar with Nooka’s system – the 12 dots represent hours and the horizontal row counts minutes. As a timepiece, its unique off-center 45mm by 35mm display case design and separates it from other watches available today. The Nooka logo is also deep-etched into either side of the case. The mode buttons become part of the logo, rising from inside the infinity sign. Currently available for left arm wearers, an adjustable Zirc that can be modified for use on the right arm will be available in late 2008. Available now at www.nooka.com for a suggested retail price of $350 USD.

Creatively matched with functionality is what great products are created from. Because of the special relationship between Nike and the Surf brand Hurley (Nike owns Hurley), the creative minds behind Kicks/HI were able to do something unique. What they did was combine the lightweight properties of the Free sole from Nike and incorporating it into a slipper making this perhaps the best slipper on the market. Kicks/HI also comissioned Gio Estevez from Anx and Supreme for the artwork on the slipper. Perfect for the summer, these will be dropping soon at Kicks/HI.

Approximately two years ago, A-Ron from the brand aNYthing (who is no longer affiliated with aNYthing), started the aNYthing Glob (currently known as the The New York Glob) which was A-Ron’s voice to the world. In his blog, he would take photos of guest who would drop by the office. His guest which included artists, musicians and friends had their pictures taken at his office’s back door. A-Ron has taken those pictures and made it into the Back Door book. If you have followed A-Ron’s blog from the start, this book will definitely bring back some memories.
