Coolbox Toolbox

The Coolbox might appear to be a normal toolbox at first glance, but this useful tool is more like a portable workstation for the construction site, boat, or garage. First of all, Coolbox features a 20v rechargeable lithium polymer battery to run small power tools on the go or to charge your devices (via two USB ports built into the front panel). It also has a built-in, marine-grade 40w Bluetooth speaker built into the front, built-in LED lighting mounted internally and externally, and an LCD clock that will also display the battery level. Add to that some less techy, but still quite handy, conveniences like a retractable 12 foot extension cord, dual handles, wheels, a 20” x 12” dry-erase board on the inside lid, and a tablet stand, and you have the smartest toolbox on the block. While the Coolbox is crowdfunding on indiegogo (until March 12th), you can get one for the special price of $169 (61% off the $299 retail price), with an estimated delivery of June 2015. That timing might make it a great Father’s Day or graduation present for that …

Origami Hunter Wall Lights

Hunting trophies may signify power and grandeur to some, but they are downright cruel to others. There is no denying however, that they become the focal point of a room. An animal-friendly alternative is the Origami Hunter lighting range by Chilean designer Veronica Posada. The fixtures are made of industrial-grade, heat-resistant paper that has been folded into the shape of a stag, rhino, or ram head. While tested for safety, the lights have not been UL-listed as of yet. The pieces range from 13.8 inches tall by 11.8 inches wide (rhino) to 28.3 inches tall by 15.7 inches wide (stag and ram). They are available exclusively through Pretty Dandy, an online interiors boutique based in Nottingham, England. £179 (single light), £495 (set of three).
