Architect working in studio
and something for the ladies
drafting tools chocolates
this one just in case -
who uses blueprints anymore aren't they supposed to be bad for the environment? And can I get those in metric for my architect-buddies in the uk/eu??
does anyone know of a visually clean industrial designish jewlery company
i want a nice looking belt buckle so i can flex at crits
Well, there's Konzuk, but they don't have belt buckles. There are also some really neat titanium rings/wedding bands at the jewelry store across the street from where I live; I'll have to ask who manufactures them.
Ryan, your name looked familiar so I took a look at your site. I once worked at the Design Assistance Center! And I also attended OSU!
For the Architecture Students on your list:
Soap & Water.
I needed to resurrect this thread. Anyone have any great gift ideas for architect or designer buddies that aren't cliche or overpriced?
a kick ass mouse
to take your mind off of problems at the office how about a rousing game of beer pong?

frank lloyd wright books, of course. silly question.
My friend got like three for graduation once,..because people didn;t know what to give him.
I assume everyone on archinect has received multiple frank lloyd wright books at some point in their life form unsuspecting family member
why are the chocolates "for the ladies"? i'm a guy and i eat chocolate.
oh the FLW books are a must!
the best was when my aunt gave me the "FLW in pop-up"
try to keep a straight face when someone hands you that.
i once got an 'architecture puzzle' meant for 5-10 year olds [me, thirties]. it had different boards with drawings of buildings on them and you were supposed to put them together and presto, architecture. i sent it to a local charity. could not even muster a smile when i got it.
my mother gave me the flw popup... just a couple of yrs ago.
I received the FLW popup as a gift a few years ago. It was much more appreciated than a run of the mill FLW book would have been. I also have a FLW coloring book. Both make for fun conversation pieces.
a friend gave me this pop up as a graduation gift....i was surprised to see the guggenheim bilbao in there as a pop up...
i wish someone could buy me some sleep.
get me some cad monkeys please
I'm graduating in a few days. I'm just glad my best friend's big brother is a dentist. That way I'll have somewhere else to forward all the subscriptions to Architectural Digest that I'm sure I'll be getting for graduation/Christmas.
jewellery is pretty gorgeous, silicone rubber and stainless steel and stuff. good for the nerd/aesthete lady crossover. (ditto paraphernalia but i think that's a different kind of nerd.)
anything from this thread
I got agree with carbide
Nervous System jewelry is a musthttp://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com
(I am not biased in any way)
ha! it's nice to be caught out while saying nice things/revealing my wishlist. usually only happens when i'm being mean.
Speaking of jewelry, I've been longing for this cork cuff for awhile now.
I also need a cad monkey, well really someone who can make Sketch-Up look cool. But I need that gift before Christmas - Winter Solstice gift, perhaps?
A Swiss-made digital caliper by Brown and Sharpe for less than $200. Also consider antique drafting tool sets by K&E or Richter (on eBay for about $50).
Tools... Preferably expensive power tools; table saw, hammer drill, et cetera
