Winnie the Pooh’s tree home on Airbnb

For the 95th anniversary of Winnie the Pooh, some lucky guests got to live their childhood dream by staying at a replica of his tree house. Pooh Bear illustrator Kim Raymond designed the home with beautiful details inspired by the original stories. The ‘Bearbnb’ house rules state that Heffalumps are strictly forbidden and that guests should keep their hands out of the honey pots.

Shopify Party

E-commerce platform Shopify made their own internal game to have more fun during virtual hangouts. Instead of exhausting video chats, they created a browser-based space designed for social play. It features silly games that employees can play while doing their 1:1 meetings or standups, making people feel more comfortable and less anxious.

Pencils made of recycled Nespresso capsules

Swiss producer of writing instruments Caran d’Ache teamed up with Nespresso to create a limited collection of pencils and pens made of recycled capsules. The ballpoint pens and mechanical Fixpencil come in colors that remind you of fan-favorite coffee flavors, with graphite lead made with coffee grounds. For the set of Swiss wood pencils, the brand decorated the metallic ends in capsule colors.
