Matter

Sexy, mod scissors that stand on end from Matter.

THE CUT: Count on the eagle-eyed geniuses at Matter to track down scissors that are a modernist work of sculptural art – as well as being, you know, scissors. They’re by Anything, a collab twixt Brit designer Michael Sodeau and Japan’s Suikosha company. You’ll never bury scissors in your desk or kitchen drawer again. $39 at Matter, 405 Broome Street; 212-343-2600.

JUST DESSERTS: A wee replica of a Victorian pie or cake server dangles from a 20” chain, the whole lot made of sterling silver and featuring two tiny diamonds set in the server’s floral cutout. This necklace by Demitasse seems rescued from a musty drawer in your grandmother’s attic – in a good way. $186 from Catbird, 219 Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718-599-3457.

POP LIFE: These days, he may be crooning French Jacques Brel covers, but James Osterburg – aka Iggy Pop – started out in 1967 as part of the Stooges, delighting-slash-horrifying audiences with his no-holds-barred performances. He’ll be at the Barnes & Noble Tribeca tonight, signing copies of “The Stooges: The Authorized and Illustrated Story,” along with rock photographer Robert Matheu, who compiled the first-ever authorized book – pakced with iconic imagery, ephemera and more -- about the band. 7PM. 97 Warren Street; 212-587-5389.
