As children get older, it becomes more challenging to think of interesting ways of celebrating their birthdays with friends. We've noticed two things: parties thankfully become smaller and it becomes more tricky to come up with a suitable theme. For tweens, a spa party is an ideal solution. Here in Bermuda, there is a business that provides spa treatments for children exclusively. It is a small facility but it can hold up to 10 or 15 children fairly easily.

Philippe Malouin's Connection line of tabletop objects for design brand Othr is a wonderful example of the beauty that can be created by 3-D printing when it is not being used strictly to create industrial objects.  The Connection Vessel is made of 3-D printed steel and consists of a large bowl supported by a thin handle.  The origin of the piece is clearly evident and no effort has been made to conceal the striations that are created during the printing process.  A porcelain version (not pictured) is also available.

The Diamond collection of furniture by WEND, an Oakland design studio formed as a collaboration between designers Michelle Plante and Genevieve Bandrowskihas an open weave design and modern shape that was created with laid back, resort-style living in mind.  The company, which aims to marry the traditional Indonesian craft of hand weaving with a distinctly Californian aesthetic, drew from European designs from the 1960s and collaborated with an Indonesian designer to produce these small-batch, hand-woven chairs and settees made from sustainable rattan harvested from the islands of Sulawesi and Kalimantan over a durable iron base.

In an attempt to encourage the use of snail mail (although that animal does not appear), the Royal Mail in the United Kingdom have, in conjunction with design studio Osborne Ross, produced these fun and whimsical stamps which are designed to look as though each animal is holding on to the package for dear life.
