In 1995 French industrial designer Fréderic Perigot created the eponymous brand Perigot, pioneer and leader in its field of utilitarian design. “Hardware shops were a punishment. We have transformed them into a pleasurable purchasing experience. It was necessary to take the pain and guilt out of these objects. Our products have a graphic side and a quality image.”
The Perigot Frisbee rubbish bin is made from epoxy metal and is a design statement for your kitchen. “I didn’t want to design just another trash bin. This one is shaped like the body of an aircraft, with a perfect finish. Its ultra-flat lid resembles a frisbee, and when you close it, it sounds like the door of a sedan”.
Made in France and available in a range of colours, with contrasting lift-out liner bins, from Everyday Needs.
Would love to get my hands on a pair of the resissued 997 from New Balance. I understand though that these are a limited edition and not on general release in the UK. :(

LaCie recently introduced a handcrafted hard drive enclosed in a spherical case of silver–plated steel designed by French manufacturer of fine silver Christofle. The LaCie Sphère is stamped, silver–plated and finally polished for a perfect brightness in Christofle’s silversmith workshop in Yainville (Normandy), France.
Loving what appears to be some kind of alien abduction themed wind chime.
How do I get my hands on one of these..?
