ipodspeakers
Originally uploaded by djfischer.
After Bose has launched the Sounddock a few months ago, now there is the Concertino triode tube baseamp.
These things are entirely worked in aluminium and the tubes are open, so one can actually see them.
Now, there is clearly no good reason anymore to have a stereo or hifi system. Get the ipod and this beautiful Concertino system and you are very well equipped. The sound has also been outstanding in a few tests. The system can be purchased at Goldster-Audio and goes for (ok, thats quite a lot) 3200 Euros. This includes 2 speakers, the tube amplifier and a subwoofer and guarantees amazing sound and design.

Originally uploaded by djfischer.
The ICON building in Miami is the new lifestyle home of many stars. The building will be finished in 2005 and after 2 years of building something amazing came out. The Skyscraper on the beach front of Miami is 129 Meters high.
It features a massive lobby designed by Philippe Starck. Other ameneties include bay front pools, a resident cafe and pool bar, fitness center, and valet parking.
The building is the usual Starck-fest of gleaming white accentuated by chandeliers and huge furniture. The location couldnt be more ideal and the giant glass windows take full advantage of the beautiful views. The Icon was Starcks first United States residential development. He also did DownTown by Starck. We reported about that earlier this week. J. Lo`s Penthouse in the ICON cost 9.9 Mio. $. That should be fine, especially after she sold her former Miami mansion for 11 Mio. $.

faconnable
Originally uploaded by djfischer.
Faconnable has also originally been a french brand. A few years ago the brand was sold to Nordstrom, the american high class department store giant. Once Nordstrom had bought it, the idea was to make the new "Polo Ralph Lauren" out of the brand. They have not quite achieved that yet, but its still a great brand.
The materials are of better quality than Ralph Lauren and the style and the design is less american and more french. Really a great brand with a lot of international potential.
Prices are very close to those of Polo, sometimes a bit higher.

These Coo Clocks greet you with a farm or jungle creature. The design is already rather new and outstanding.
One can buy them in different colors and with different sounds and creatures. I am sure everyone finds one matching his/her living room.
The question though is, whether you would want something like that in your living room??
The great thing is though that the clock turns off its act when the room goes dark. So, you will not wake up in the middly of the night due to some jungle rythm in the other room. Makes the whole thing a bit less anoying. But its a great gift ? What do you think? One can buy it at HeadsUp for 45 pounds.
