Blue Light Special... PAD Outdoor on Gilt Groupe...
We are happy to announce a four day Gilt Groupe/PAD Outdoor sales event starting this Friday, June 18. We are honored to have been hand-selected by the web's top purveyor of luxury brands, the Gilt Groupe, for their new Home section. If you are already a member of Gilt then you know what great stuff (and prices) they offer... if not... then go directly to their site www.gilt.com to see what the fuss is about.
The sales event will feature our PODs line of planters and vessels and will introduce, for the first time to the public, the new table-top-sized version 4.0. Not only is it the first time these cute little pots will be offered to the public, but as with all products on Gilt, they will be available at a great price too. But the event only lasts for four days, and when its done so are the great prices.
In addition to the debut of the 4.0, Gilt will offer a special color way of our original aluminum cachepot, the ver. 1.0. This bright 'lemon-yellow' color is only available through Gilt during the PAD event so go directly to gilt.com and check out all the great deals on all the great PAD Outdoor products.
Little is the new Big!
These small vessels extend the successful PODs by PAD product line, and while they are suitable for both indoors and out, they are especially at home on table tops. Small plants, suculents and blooming perennials will all look great in these contemporary design icons.
Made of thin aluminum which has been annealed in the forming process these small planters are unexpectedly strong and unbelievably light.
At 7" in diameter they are perfect for grouping yet bold enough to stand on their own. There are 3 styles, a 1O" 'tall' and 4" 'full skirt' & 'half skirt' models.
They are available in powder coated and anodized finishes. Check out the Gallery section on our website for more information.
THREE IS A MAGIC NUMBER... the TRe VASE by PAD®
The triple chamber design allows for maximum capacity with a minimal foot print. All three chambers are connected at the rim so water poured into the center is equally diverted to each vase segment. However, these prosaic details merely serve a form so original and comely that it almost mocks its functionality.
The 1/4" poly carbonate material is individually thermoformed, in Southern California, from a single mold, thus each Tre Vase bares a subtle yet unique singularity akin to hand-made objects. Available in three moods, Black, austere elegance, White, inner luminosity and Clear, revealing transparency...
Dim: 10 " high, 15 " across at the top. Wt: 1 lbs

PAD @ Dwell on Design
PAD made a good, if not great, showing at the Dwell on Design show in Los Angeles this last weekend. Thanks to our showroom partners FORD&CHING our new Pod planters were beautifully showcased and if we heard correctly one of the standout hits at the show. In addition to the Pods FORD&CHING also showed our 'in-float-able' pool lounge, which while still in development is just about ready for production.
PAD Pods are available online at aplusrstore.com

Rooted in the Past
Metal spinning is an ancient (or at least pretty old) manufacturing process. It is most prevalent in the manufacturing of component parts for the lighting industry. We have utilized this process for a stand alone product that highlights the inherent formal beauty and radially symmetry of spun objects .
PAD 'Pods'... we think the pictures tell the story...
...but in case you need some additional info... the Pods are hand spun aluminum with an exterior-grade powder coat finish. They are ideal planters for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Made of recyclable aluminum, the pads are ultra-lightweight and available in six great colors. The steel stands come in two heights so they can be configured in many eye-catching compositions.
We will be premiering the Pods at the Dwell On Design show in Los Angeles, June 26th - 27th.
Play With Fire
These blocks just don't stack up... and for legal reasons its a good thing.
Eight wicks are certainly better than one in this case... burn them one at a time or turn it up to 11 by blazing all eight en masse. The burn time of this candle is almost incalculable.
PAD's '8 Knob Candle' is solid wax made from plastic molds to ensure a precision 'toy-like' finish.

This little gem was the toast of the design blogosphere last fall. Hand-crafted in small batches, in Southern California, we had a devil of a time keeping this baby in stock. Sparing no expense, the gold glaze on the handle contains more than trace amounts of real gold. The design attempts to mediate the novelty of the formal appropriation by enhancing the iconic beauty of the 'ole knuckle-duster'.
Originally released in Black and White, we have recently introduced a limited edition Red. This item is currently available through the online design mecca aplusrstore.com
Sometimes beautiful design just happens with an effortlessness that makes one contemplate the role of the 'designer' in 'design'. Dig this picture of our local hardware, Baller Hardware in Silver Lake CA. White field, Helvetica type justified right and simple descriptions of what lies inside. Not only a perfect advertisement for Baller, but also a fine example of the graphic design ideas of Massimo Vignelli in action... and quite by accident.
Massimo Vignelli is the man who brought Helvetica to the states and is best known for his globally recognized design for the New York City Subway map and information system. If you want to learn more about Vignelli check out "Vignelli From A to Z" published late last year by Images Publishing. The self penned survey is a combination bible and how to book...really first rate.
He also designed the plastic plates and mugs for Heller. These 70's icons are being produced again, unfortunately only in the monochromatic range (white, black & gray).
