The Extra ORdinary Objects by Jennifer Rabatel

Jennifer Rabatel is a product designer from France whose collection of The Extra ORdinary Objects was a way for her to turn basic objects into new things. The result is four collections of items that are a bit quirky but most definitely creative and functional.

Rabatel began with four simple items – a scraper, wrenches, a T-square, and an envelope, and here is what she came up with:

Spatula Mirrors
A set of mirrors inspired by paint scrapers – hand mirror, pocket mirror, wall mirror, and table mirror.

T-square Hanger
A foldable hanger for pants or a coat that was born from her daily use of a T-square and realizing it featured the perfect angle to hold a coat.

Wrench Candela
An adjustable candleholder made from pivoting wrenches that each hold a candle.

Envelope Bag
A leather computer bag with engraved buttons that resembles a Kraft paper envelope.
