Continuing the theme of commercializing existing practices, Didi over at Modern Convenience makes a lot of objects, mostly upholstered, that appeal to the whimsical side of people who have too much money. Two items of interest to us are the Inside Skate and the Indoor Longboard. Didi’s are prettier, but Egbert’s version is guaranteed to be cheaper. And speaking of people who have too much money, that’s Bam in in the picture above. More pics, including a Gratuitous Tony Hawk appearance after the jump.
OK, I tease. I like about half of the products over at Modern Convenience, and I can enjoy the spirit of it. How much do these things cost? The web site is adverse to listing prices. These products seem like they were made for art’s sake instead of practical use, making them more of a modern inconvenience. Boy, am I clever.
Celebrities! it’s Tony Hawk and Bam Margera at the Skate Park of Athens, GA September 18, 2005. I believe that’s a Grindline creation. It looks fun, and the 2005 date makes it look like Egbert has his work cut out for him in proving prior existence of his product. So much for that patent infringement case.
