Picks of the Week


From a kitten-embossed rolling pin and a toothbrush that requires no toothpaste to striking flower photography and Kartell’s Sparkle Stool, these are the VISI team favourites this week.

1. MoodForWood Rolling Pin

Features editor Tracy Greenwood is cat crazy (with nine currently living at her home). We thought this rolling pin would go down a treat in her feline-obsessed household.

2. Roots by Miguel Vallinas

“I love this new series by photographer Miguel Vallinas called Roots, which pairs dressed figures with seasonal plants and flowers as their heads. So simple, yet so clever and fun,” says special projects manager Cecilia du Plessis.

4. The Misoka Toothbrush

“Thanks to nano-sized ions, you don’t need to use toothpaste to clean your teeth with this clever toothbrush,” says deputy editor Annemarie Meintjes. “The design is sleek too!”

5. Resident Mesh Space Light

“These LED lights were launched at New York Design Week 2015,” says managing editor Lise Avis. “They’re both pretty and functional.”
