Announcing the thinkmore Wall of Fame.

This is a collection of well designed and very useful objects – and in many cases, very humble. These are small everyday tools. Not high design in the traditional sense, but highly functional design. And they look good. We use these objects every day, so it’s a given that they’ve been subjected to extreme scrutiny.

It’s not easy for any product to make its way to the wall, so anything here is around for good reason. These objects are sourced from around the world, and will perform better than anything else in their category. In the coming weeks, we will publish detailed examinations of each object, much as we’ve done here, here and here. More object examinations can be found in the ‘tools of the trade‘ category on this blog.

Go forth and get your own. If you have trouble locating any of these, let us know and we’ll help ya. There’s quite a bit of space left on the wall, so if there’s something you think ought to reside here, let us know?

For an idea of size, the pegs on the wall are 4″ on center, about 10cm.
