You may have heard of cool and stylish Sabi pill cases and walking canes. The brand is now exploring the new horizons with their line of bathroom accessories, called Sabi Space. This 13-piece collection of interchangeable pieces revolves around the same peg design, which attaches to the tile via the 3M-like adhesive. Definitely something rental apartment dwellers would appreciate. The pieces twist or click via magnets onto pegs, which makes them easy to install and just as easy to uninstall. So, you are not stuck with the holes in your tiled wall and can change your arrangement if necessary. The Sabi Space line will go on sale in September. Check out the video after the break to see it in action.

Flow kitchen is a clever idea that belongs to the Oregon based design duo StudioGorm. Inspired by nature, the piece offers a balanced landscape of elements and functions. “Flow is a living kitchen where nature and technology are integrated in a symbiotic relationship, processes flow into one another in a natural cycle, efficiently utilizing energy, waste, water and other natural resources,” – designers say. This compact piece includes a gas cooktop, prep area with the sliding cutting board and a sink, evaporative cooling boxes, ample storage and even a herb garden. I like the fact that the kitchen is developed as a flexible system where resources are reused by several elements creating a dynamic relationship between the products. See more images after the break.
