The answer to all the pocket-jingling and damaged phones is here — the Orbitkey. The Orbitkey is a beautifully-made keyring that has just recently been developed and released. The Orbitkey keeps your keys organised, all together and very neat too. Looking a bit like a bow, the Orbitkey comes in pure leather in a range of different colours, as well as the Elastomer version. It can hold up to seven keys and the beauty is that you can put them into the keyring in the order that suits you, so you know exactly where each key is and you can slide it out at the time you need it. There is also a clever lock-nut that holds it all together. The Orbitkey is also great when you have to go out on that evening walk or jogging because it keeps your keys neat and silent as you run.

Why have a generic silver-plated clock on your wall when you can have a cool piece of art?
The face of the Moon Clock is an image mash-up of 65 different actual photographs of the moon — these photos were taken in France by astronomy photographer Norbert. A round, domed glass front is also a nice additional detail. The clock face also glows for two hours after the lights are switched off.
So if you are settling down to watch a movie, the Moon Clock adds extra atmosphere to the experience.
We love this clock, designed by Clair de Lune, and think it is perfect for a modern lounge, apartment or pad, depending on what you call your home, and it also makes a lovely gift.
