Design is Everywhere, Bookmarks Included

If something is designed to look like it is melting, bleeding, or dripping, chances are it’s going to tickle us pink at OfTheNow. You saw it when we found French designer, John Nouanesing resin Love Me table and Fredrikson Stallard‘s Loversand It Can Happen Here polyurethane rugs in Drip, Drip Drop…Goes the Furniture? And we have found it again again in the Liquid Bookmark, which gives new meaning to the phrase “bloody good book.”

Each silicon Liquid Bookmark designed by Kyouei Co Ltd. from Japan is made by hand by the designer, and you know what that means, no two bloody/melting/dripping bookmarks are the same. We like that even more.

Another fun bookmark is the Help! bookmark by i3 lab from Korea. It’s a cute paperclip style bookmark with two cartoon hands that jut out from the top of your book. You can get these guys from Design Boom for $26 USD including shipping
