The Humble Brilliance of Italy's Moka Coffee Pot
The Moka Pot - remains a cool, inexpensive, highly functional example of mid-century modern design. In the same way that the single-cup pour-over cone was rediscovered and prized, sparking a whole new round of sales, maybe the moka pot is due for some revitalization and new trendiness. It seems impossible, or at least undesirable, for such a cool gadget to die  https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/make-coffee-moka-pot?

Discarded face masks upcycled into stools
South Korean designer Haneul Kim has collected thousands of used disposable face masks from his university campus and recycled them to create a stackable stool. Called Stack and Stack, the project hopes to set an example for how the 129 billion single-use face-masks that the world goes through every month during the coronavirus pandemic can be diverted from ending up in landfill and in our oceans. https://www.dezeen.com/2021/01/06/haneul-kim-stack-stool-face-masks-design/

Seesaws Connect
A collection of bright pink seesaws allowed people to interact over the US-Mexico border, won the prestigious Design of the Year award, with its creators saying they hoped the work encourages people to build bridges between communities. The artwork was put up on July 28, 2019, and removed from the politically charged border barrier after less than an hour. The Design Museum named the project as the overall winner of the Beazley Designs of the Year competition for 2020, having considered 74 projects by designers from around the world. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-01-20/pink-seesaws-us-mexico-border-wall-win-uk-beazley-design-award/13072818
