We've always enjoyed reading Yanko Design, a blog which showcases the latest designs from up and coming designers. Recently, Yanko Design went a bit further and opened their online store, showcasing some of the pieces that they have blogged about.
How is this store different from you usual online store? Well, it enables young designers to sell some of their designs pretty easily, without having to worry too much about distributors and the like. Basically, it can cut out some of the middlemen, which means more money for designers, which is a lot better for getting even more intriguing designs.

Spotted at the store, we saw the d°light Huggable Pillow by Diana Lin, the Block Lamp by Harri Koskinen, and the Cloud Chair by Lisa Widén. We were really impressed by the quirky and interesting products that we could find in this store, from funky lights to furniture, to gadgets. For now, there are only 14 items for sale in this store, but we have no doubt that more and more designers will want to sell their products this way. All in all, it's a great idea.
