Over the weekend, British conceptual product designer Jasper Morrison announced on Instagram that fellow designer Fabien Cappello‘s “objetos de hojalata para el Hogar” (tin objects for the home) were now available at the Jasper Morrison Shop. Cappello, a French industrial designer working in Guadalajara, Mexico, specializes in everyday objects (think candlesticks and tortilla presses), and Morrison was showing and selling Cappello’s line of incredibly artful and cool tin watering cans at his store. (The New York Times describes his pieces as “steam punk,” and we agree.)
I checked the web store two days later and—wouldn’t you know it?—they are already sold out. Why? Just look at them. Fingers crossed they’ll restock soon.
