Envisioning the Eco-Jet

Envisioning the Eco-Jet

Designed for the not-so-distant future, the AWWA·QG “Progress Eagle” 800 passenger aircraft features innovations in form and tech that make it both bigger and greener than an Airbus A380. Most noticeably, the reshaped fuselage is more giant fighter jet than airliner, giving it enhanced aerodynamics as well as visibility for both pilots and passengers. Despite its size, it aims for zero-contaminant emissions by harnessing approaching quantum mechanic technologies, superconductive fuel-cell engines and a CO2 in-air cleaning system.

Crystal Math

Crystal Math

No. That isn’t a Pokémon. It’s a chair; and a pretty fine one, that too. Inspired by quartz, and built using an intricate mathematical algorithm derived from the mineral’s complex crystalline structure, the armchair comprises of a wooden frame and geometric cushions that you can arrange to make sure the chair feels comfortable. Each geometric cushion is unique and inimitable, making every single Quartz chair one-of-a-kind, much like its mineral counterpart!

A walk(man) down the memory lane

A walk(man) down the memory lane

A decade ago, there used to be two categories of humans. The Nokia lovers, and the Sony Ericsson lovers. I was unabashedly the latter, and a small piece of me died when the Walkman series came to an end, following Sony’s acquisition of Sony Ericsson. Designer David Bull, however, didn’t take things sitting down. Here’s a conceptual Walkman Phone, designed to fit into today’s market with just the perfect amount of Walkman’s classic, resplendent style. *Insert tear-jerking nostalgic music*

This Retro Tube Clock is WINNING

This Retro Tube Clock is WINNING

Looking at the clock after it’s already shown you the time is a total snooze. We have time-telling products all around us but we only tend to notice them when we need tbem. Blub Uno is a desk clock which holds its own as both an object of function when you need it and of beauty when you don’t! The individual glowing numbers, housed in a glass cylinder, are a beautiful alternative to the common digital and analogue displays we’re so used to seeing.
