{     SUCK UK     }    

SUCKUK.jpg

It’s a moment I’ll never forget, the day I found SUCK UK. It was under the suggestion of a good friend of mine that I check out this website http://www.suck.uk.com. Being this was someone who was big on design I trusted them to show me a great site. They weren’t wrong, as a matter of fact they were surpassingly right.

SUCK (the brand) was established in late 1999 in North London. Their product ranges from quirky gifts, to accessories and items for your home. You’ve probably seen their product in trendy stores about town and thought “Gee, that’s pretty smart.” or “Whoever created that is a genius.” I’m sure after you see their product you’ll agree entirely.

I recently got my hands on a few of the SUCK UK products. As a writer I had to appreciate the first item, “Dead Fred.” Dead Fred is a desktop pen holder who has a penchant for making you more of a murderer in the first degree everyday you reach for your pen. Made of silicone rubber, he’s functional and exceedingly (and morbidly) funny. If you’re looking for ironic though, the next item will catch your fancy. The “No Smoking Ashtray” was supposedly made from a “No Smoking” sign itself. Two fun ways to look at this item are either stickin’ it to the person who would leave one of these out or the sour twist of irony for offering an ashtray but expecting people to leave their butts out of it. The more useful products offered were a pocket sized subway map, for the New Yorker who needs to remember where to go and how the hell to get there, a “key-bottle opener” for...well, anyone who enjoys a frosty bottled beverage (did someone say Guinness?), and finally the artistic twisted functionality of the “Dart Hooks.” By and far my favorite reasonably priced item, the Dart Hooks take advantage of the fact that poor aim can also mean a great place to hang a coat or a hat.

SUCK UK is a great place to visit if only to say you’ve seen something that reaches into the cosmic pool of cool ideas and has been made for you by someone who gets it. Whether your pad needs sprucing or you do, SUCK UK is a destination of choice.

Man, that Villain Chair is so killer. Honestly, that is the coolest thing I have EVER seen offered on a website. If I had that thing I'd have to position my desk in the corner of my room just so I could swivel around with a cat on my lap and a maniacal look.
