The Get Up and Get Down

Our good friend Nick Maggio, from A Time To Get, has created a new site called The Get Up and Get Down. Focusing on hand crafted products from individual artists, designers, and craftsmen, the site has a great collection of products ranging from hand made knives to table lamps (pictured above). Along with featuring other peoples products, there is a “how to” section with a wide range of step-by-step guides to create your own – for example – canoe for under $200… among numerous other awesome things. The Get Up and Get Down, is definitely worth a few hours of your day and if you are like me and have moved into a new place recently, this is also a great source of inspiration to keep your house as Ikea free as possible!

Defgrip X Quintin hat in stock

We have a small batch of the Defgrip X Quintin hats in stock on our online store right now. The quantities are really small and based on all the positive response, they will probably sell out real fast, so we just want to apologize in advance if you aren’t able to pick one up. We are in the process of working on a larger run of hats, so keep an eye out for those, and while your at it, pick up one of the Defgrip beanies now that the weather is getting cold!! (p.s. we ship anywhere in the world!)

For the past few months we have been working with Duo to design and limited edition Pivotal seat! We worked off the “S.L” shape and kept the colors simple with black top and white base. The seat has some tonal stitching and a woven label on the front, and an embossed logo on the back. We are super excited on how they turned out and cant wait to throw them on our bikes. You can get them from Greenhouse Distribution and check out a few more shots of the seat after the jump!


The Decade’s 14 Biggest Design Moments

Fast Company has a year-end feature rounding up the 14 biggest moments in design from the past decade. While I’m not sure I agree with all of the choices, it’s pretty crazy to think back to the first time you saw an iPod, or the fact that Design With In Reach wasn’t around and everyone was driving huge SUV’s.
