With so many cool things coming out each week, it can be hard to wade through all the rock-awesomeness. With ‘Cool Tools’, we’ve done the hard work for you.

This week we saw an insane coffee table that brings a small slice of the ocean into your living room, a sofa that more or less resembles the original Moog, an all-new minimalistic arcade shooter for iOS, how to build a Modern Live Edge Coffee Table (in case the ocean one doesn’t suit your fancy), a quick history on why running used to be for “weirdos” and more…

Ready? Let’s go!

This week we look at:

DESIGN

delMare table

des01

“The delMare table is one of those pieces that mesmerizes people. You won’t easily understand it’s shape and form, but you will be drawn to look at it for hours, as you would gaze into the depth of the ocean floor.”

SOFA MOOG

Des02

“The official Moog sofa.”

APPS

Confide

App01

“Confide is your confidential messenger. We combine end-to-end encryption with disappearing and screenshot-protected messages to ensure your private communication will now truly stay that way.”

Symmetrica

App02

“Explore captivating world of geometry. To pass each challenge, you have to focus power of blue cone-shaped projectiles into green circles. “

DIY

Build a Modern Live Edge Coffee Table

“I’m making a live edge coffee table with a mid-century twist by adding hairpin legs. This is my first time using a router-sled jig to flatten a slab and it worked out suprisingly well. All my supplies are listed below as well as a written step-by-step.”

Build an Outdoor Bench

“Every porch needs a bench.”

ROCK AWESOMENESS

When Running Was For Weirdos

“Today, it seems like everybody’s a runner. But it wasn’t always that way.”

Robert Rushkin – The Artist

“We did a documentary about Robert Rushkin, an artist with an outstanding body of work that we thought deserves more attention.”
