Screw This

I've mentioned my love for quirky packaging tape, but today I received a gift that completely trumped my current lacy roll.


Designed by Richard Shed and Sam Johnson, this limited edition Screwhead packaging tape evolved from discussions on furniture construction and whether structural detail could carry decorative qualities or change the perceived value of an object. It certainly upped the value of my surprise and I didn't have to break out power tools to unwrap.

Ack! I'm slayed by the radness. I have to get some of this.

Just think of the interesting things you could do to clean-edged IKEA furniture with this stuff ... inspiration, inspiration!
