Things I found out about Stefan Sagmeister after the show. Love the visual feast and the anecdotes but still not convinced about meditation.

I’ve said so much about this store I’m starting to sound like an annoying broken record player. Go here and here to read what I’ve written in the past and have been constantly telling my friends and family. Praises galore yes, so it’s no surprise that I made my way to their new location during my recent trip to Shanghai. They now have space for a teahouse/café on the third floor though it wasn’t open when I visited.

Kitchen tools from the not so recent past

Bronze ginger shredder (铜姜礤)

This is a tool for making ginger slices and ginger juice, with a strainer in the front to separate the ginger juice from the scrapes after the ginger is rubbed on the handle.

Bronze oven (铜烤炉)

The four corners of the oven are tilted upwards to hold tongs and other cooking tools. Four wheels are installed under the bottom for convenience of movement.
