3. Architecture playing cards

Forget Hearts, Clubs, Spades and Diamonds, these cards have styles of 20 century architecture as the suits. That’s pre-modernism, modernism, post-modernism, and de-structuralism, in case you were wondering. The individual cards feature notable projects and architects.

Made in crystal, this funky paper weight depicts one of Hirst's most famous works.

The chance to buy an original work by this talented artist. We love this bright and fun monkey image.

This limited edition design by the Glasgow-based artist injects a bit of fun into the washing up.
