The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.



Takumi Shimamura’s Monacca Bag/Case!

This is refreshing. I would personally use this to tote around a laptop or maybe just a bunch of cash. Either way, no matter what you carry you’re going to get some attention. Basically it’s a vacuum formed wood case/bag made from Japanese cedar. Beautiful. The center part that connects the two wood halves is made of canvas which is hand sewn to the wood to ensure there is no cracking in the wood, very nice. The canvas also expands a bit to accommodate different sized objects while still offering protection. Can’t you just imagine what this bag would look like after a while, all the little nicks and wear marks in the natural wood… Seems like it would take on some cool character. Nice bag/case, buy it for about $300.
