It was love at first sight. A beguiling little store tucked into a corner of Como called Gloook where most everything is made from recycled cardboard. (Gloook is just one brand of a small design firm, Alpac.) These furnishings are surprisingly strong and polished and in many cases exactly what you’d want. A tactile person’s haven…I wanted to touch and experience everything. They never said “Don’t touch,” and they even offered us a cup of coffee. Here’s their entire catalog of products. Nice. Human. Unpretentious. I like that.
What is it?The Daily Cure for me is trying to smell taste touch—really experience— something, each day, that reminds me that I'm alive and, mostly, happy to be here. A small moment that should go a long way, at least in theory.
