Raiders Of The Lost Ark Melting Nazi Face Candle

The Melting Toht candle looks like your regular old candle-in-the-shape-of-a-man-with-his-mouth-open candle at first glance. But light it up and you’ll see that it will slowly transform into Gestapo agent Toht from Raiders of the Lost Arc from that unforgettable scene towards the end of the movie.

Even if you haven’t seen the flick, the candle’s still awesome to watch as it burns. Hit the break for a video of that scene we’re talking about (it’s not for the faint-hearted!)

When you’ve got a kid, you’ll quickly realize that your once-spacious apartment is too small for comfort.

Brew Tea for One: Ceramic Half Teapot

Tea For One - Ceramic Half Teapot

 

 

Stale bread. Cold tea. You can still eat ‘em and drink ‘em, but you’ll do so minus the pleasure you’d normally have if the bread was warm and the tea was hot. There’s not much you can do about the bread, but there is something you can do about the tea: brew a batch that’s meant for one. And the teapot that was made just for this purpose is this Tea for One ceramic teapot by Droog.

Part of a collection, the Dutch teapot echoes classic Chinese design and was made in Shenzhen, China, where many items are copied for the mass market. Highlighting what gets changed in a “copy,” the collection strives to bring attention to the creative decisions that go into making all copycats and to show that unoriginality can be inspiring, too.

It basically looks like a teapot that was cut in half, which is probably something you wanted to do with your regular pot when you wanted to make some tea for your lonesome. The Tea for One teapot retails for $75.

Beware of H2O: Scientific Side Effects Water Bottle

Scientific Side Effects Water Bottle

 

Water is more dangerous than you think…not. Okay, so it could be, but only if you consume hideously excessive amounts of it in a short span of time. So fool a couple of people of people who don’t really know the facts about H2O by pranking– er, gifting– them with one of these ‘Scientific Side Effects Water’ bottle. A bold warning about what happens if you drink too much water is printed on the side.

It reads: “May cause diaphoresis, micturation, and acute tissue hydration.” In normal human speak, that translates to: “May cause you to sweat, pee, and be adequately hydrated.” Doesn’t sound so dire now, does it?

It’s available online for $18.

Hockenheimer Magazine Stool

 

A piece of art or furniture? The Hockenheimer Magazine Stool is neither one, because it’s actually a combination of both. It’s basically a DIY kit that for you to make your own stool. It comes with a four-legged waxed birch stool base and two leather belts, plus a cushion so your tush is comfy when you take a seat on it. What sets it apart is because of what goes in between the cushion and the base of the stool: stacks of your old magazines and newspapers that you otherwise have no other use for.

Ghoulish Illumination: Skull Lamp

Skull Lamp

Rarely will you hear someone say that a skull lights up their world. But if you own one of these Skull lamps, you’ll be able to empathize. They aren’t the most comforting of images to wake up to, but they will give whatever room you decide to place it in that extra edge, decor-wise. You’ll be surprised to find out that the lamp is actually just two-dimensional.

Mitigating the complexity of concept and construction with a minimalist, universally understood form, the BULBING Lamp adds artistry, interest, and the gentle glow of ambient light to any room. Clean gently with the provided micro-fiber cloth.

Designer Nir Chehanowski masterfully laser engraved numerous intricate lines on the flat acrylic sheet, giving the impression of a 3D figure. The lamp retails for $120 from the MOMA store.
