Austrian Design: Polka
Another Austrian gem is the design firm Polka Products. You may remember me writing about their colorful 'Doosey Lights', but Polka actually makes a full line of products, ranging from furniture to tableware. Two of my favorites are their glass carafe and breadbasket. The carafe is a great all-in-one item, with a little cup resting on top doing double-duty as a stopper. The breadbasket is another clever piece - a cloth napkin with an interior wire frame. Now you can play with your food and it's container too!
