Quick Picks – featuring papier mache pandas, drinkable books and dandelion lamps.

Quick Picks

Look, Quick Picks is back! It’s now shorter, and possibly a little sweeter, but still full of my latest internet finds. And as always, good things come in threes…

A collaboration between French artist, Paulo Grangeon, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and the creatives at PMQ and AllRightsReserved saw 1600 papier-mâché panda sculptures travel the world to raise awareness about declining panda numbers. The number of sculptures is significant, there’s one for each panda left in the wild.

The Drinkable Book is the result of a collaboration between Water is Life, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Virginia, and typographer Brian Gartside. The pages of the book are water filters printed with messages about water safety. They tear out and slot into the custom filter box that doubles as the book’s packaging. It’s a simple and elegant design.

These Dandelion Lights designed by Japanese cinematographer Takao Inoue have made it on to my wish list. They’re available from Somewhere Tokyo for 280 Euros.

P.S. We don’t receive payment or gifts to list products or services in our Quick Picks, we link to stuff because we like it.
