This is the Equilibrium Bookcase by Malagana Design. Stunning!
“With its cantilevered modules stacked upon each other at a single angled point, Equilibrium is a unique furniture piece that immediately catches attention by creating a sense of amusement and surprise.”
It might look fragile but it can hold more than 120 lbs (54 kg) worth of weight and it’s available in three different colors as well as natural walnut veneer. No word on pricing though.

The Cablebox has a simple yet very important task; to hide as much cables, surge protectors and power strips as possible while keeping your floor nice and tidy. Cables, as we all know, is the root of all evil currently known to man.
The boxes are available in both white and black, sport rubber feet and measure 40 x 15 cm (about 15 x 6"). Just shove your excess cable in there and forget about them.

The Attaché Optima USB Flash drive is apparently the fastest in the world (20MB/sec), but I’d buy it just because of the looks. It’s available in 4 and 8GB models, both Windows Vista ReadyBoost-enabled and featuring AES encryption to keep your files secure.

So there’s rugged USB Flash drives with huge storage capabilities and then there’s products like Mokkatanten’s Porcelain Memory. This cute little Moomin-lookin’ thing is handmade and features a modest 1GB of storage and an internal LED that glows through the porcelain when active.
One gigabyte might not be much these days but to compensate for that every stick ships with a hand-knit pouch to keep it warm and cozy.
