Omni Bean Bags

Zac Contributor

By Zac in New Products on Wednesday 11 July 2012

I don’t think there’s a genuine technology company that doesn’t do a good beanbag in the office. It’s like tea and milk: creative geeks with computers need something comfy to park themselves on while they tap away at their Apple Macs, all the while whistfully dreaming they’re extras in the movie The Social Network.

Horror illustrations by Suehiro Maruo

Quan Yeomans Reader Find

By Quan Yeomans in New Illustration on Wednesday 14 December 2011

My sister is a huge advocate for sustainable living and lectures me for using the plastic bags in fruit and veg aisle of the supermarket. Is this reminder to be green annoying? Yes, every time. When the reminder comes from an adorable eco-conscious polar bear it’s a different story.
