Skyscrapers :: Bauhaus-Inspired Coasters

I was all about those letterpress coasters, but in case you're wanting something a little more long-lasting, check out these glass Bauhaus-inspired coasters.  Based on Josef Albers's Skyscrapers series of glass compositions c. 1929, these little tabletop-protectors are sure to add a nice modern touch to your home.


In the Skyscapers series, Albers explored industrial techniques to create objective art and showcased his interest in modernist architecture. Applying a technique used for engraving headstones, Albers created the abstract compositions by sand-blasting sheets of colored glass.  The coasters are made of printed glass. Wipe clean. Set of four.  Authorized by the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.

Skyscrapers Glass Coaster Set available from the MoMA Store: $30


Balance :: Salt + Pepper Shakers

I'm kind of digging these ceramic, pebble-inspired salt and pepper shakers!  Apparently the base can function as a dipping plate as well (?), if you're into that kind of thing.  You know, dipping things in stuff.  Who isn't?  I've got love for the condiment.

Balance Salt + Pepper Shakers available from GSelect: $32


Numbers :: Letterpress Coasters

We have a set of Eames Dot coasters that we picked up a few years ago, but it would be great to have an extra set or two on hand for when we have people over.  These letterpress number coasters from Red Bird Ink would definitely fit the bill!  I love the bold, graphic look.  Plus, it would be easy to keep track of which drink was yours!

Hand printed on a 100-year-old Chandler & Price letterpress using antique wood type.
