Today I found that when things look the most glum, there's a space within us that makes room for just a bit of levity. For me, I found it in one of the design spots I depend on for just such levity - Atypyk. These six new items from the fun pair of French creators are just enough to make you smile just when you or someone special needs it.
This pierced mug looks like someone I know, but I can't place him.... I definitely get the reason that 'mug' is slang for 'face' after seeing this one. Prediction: this white ceramic mug with its pierced gold earring will be a classic! Piercing

2. Volcano Incense Burner
I found one natural
disaster that is not being destructive at this writing: an inactive
volcano. This is a disaster you can create yourself, on a small scale, of course. It's an olfactory disaster activated with a
bit of incense and a light. The Volcano incense burner.

3. Lucky USB Key
With 4GB of memory, this Lucky Key USB Rabbit's Foot has not hurt one French rabbit. Nevertheless, it's been designed by some lucky French guys to bring luck to you, and we can all use it. Get lucky!

4. Side Mirror
Ever wonder what's going on behind your back at work? Get yourself a Side Mirror to mount on your computer screen or desk lamp. You'll keep in the know, but remember, "Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear."

5. Global Warming Thermometer
Okay, so you have to be sick for the Global Warming Thermometer to make you smile. Maybe I am. But this thermometer is clever and Earth Day is coming up. I'm sure you know someone who will appreciate a warmup reminder. Measures heat up to 320°F or 160°C. Keep it in the kitchen, if you can stand the heat.

6. Warning Stickers for Workaholics
This is a good time to remind us workaholics to take a breath of fresh air while we still have it. With 'work' as the modern day 'alcholism' or 'drug addiction,' the Atypyk Warning Stickers remind you that "Stopping work reduces the risks of fatal diseases," to "Get help, stop working," and they include 10 other work warning stickers that can be lifted and re-posted.
