Inspiration Saturday- Unusual Uses of Materials

This week's Saturday inspiration is all about using interesting materials in unusal ways. The materials used are concrete, wood and rubber.

I stumbled on these awesome wooden bags in a magazine (I'm not sure which one) they're by Monacca. They're made out of Japanese cedar.

and hel-lo how cute is this calculator? Definately check out their website at They do furniture too.

This jewelry piece was made out of silicone rubber that was cut with a water jet. It's part of a line of jewelry called Nervous System, developed by Jessica Eve Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg. The line came out of their mutual fascination with biology and math. Check out their website for more background info:

I spotted these great concrete rings on the other day. That website's chock full of interesting new designers. The inside part of the rings are made of stainless steel. The rings were inspired by "architecture and urban life". I love it! it's like a little piece of a building on your finger.
