From a cute watermelon slicer to a designer suitcase and a Tom Dixon copper coffee set, here are the VISI team’s favourite picks from around the world this week.

1. Pepo Watermelon Slicer by Avihai Shurin for Monkey Business

Both editor-in-chief Sumien Brink and special projects manager Cecilia du Plessis love this nifty watermelon slicer. “What’s the best thing since sliced bread?” asks Cecilia. “A watermelon popsicle slicer! Bring on summer!”

5. The Pugloaf

After the success of the Catloaf, the baker behind Lou Lou P’s Delights was recently challenged to bake a Pugloaf too (see gallery above). “I would find it really difficult to slice this!” says online editor Lindi Brownell Meiring.
