Book Review: 360° Industrial Design

Book Review: 360° Industrial Design

Someone rightly said that success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. This kind of consistent success is something I have witnessed first hand with Emami Design, headed by Arman Emami. Last year, at the Red Dot Awards Night in Singapore, I had the pleasure of speaking with him, and my only questions to him was … how do you manage to win these many accolades every year! The answers can be found in his latest book: 360° Industrial Design.

Scars Can Be Beautiful

Scars Can Be Beautiful

A cousin of the Black Scars Cabinet, the White Scars Console appears to have the same sordid past with its somewhat menacing, scarred surface. Like something out of a Tim Burton film, the design is both dark and playful. Despite its scarification, the handmade piece still looks handsome with white lacquered solid oak, copper legs and leather handles.

Solid Cold Rolling Pin

Solid Cold Rolling Pin

I’m fond of making pies and one of the biggest challenges with rolling the choux pastry dough is maintaining a smooth, clean base despite the heavy butter incorporation. Crafted from anodized aluminum and refrigerated to the perfect temperature, this chilled Rolling Pin helps roll out the perfect size crust thanks to the laser engraved graduated measurements. Marked both in both inches and millimeters, the slick non-stick surface keeps the dough cold and easy to roll.

You'll Go Crazy for this Cradle

You’ll Go Crazy for this Cradle

Little Nest is the suspended cradle that both you and baby will love! Crafted almost entirely from natural materials of wool felt, leather and wood, the design is as soft, warm and cozy as it is stylish. Suspended from the ceiling, it can also be gently set it motion to rock or sway little ones to rest.

Alfa Romeo Spirito

Alfa Romeo Spirito

This single seater, speed racing concept, called Spirito, for the Alfa Romeo brand is totally schizo! It almost seems like it can’t decide between being ultra-classic and far-out-futuristic. At first glance, its a vintage racer but take a closer look and you’ll see it’s anything but. Its sweeping curves, elongated front end harkens back to the automakers 1930s Tipo B racer while its single wheel tech is that of tomorrow.

A Winning Formula

A Winning Formula

Formula 1 fan and designer Andries van Overbeeke’s concept is a wicked redesign of the Red Bull Formula 1 set for the year 2017. Its an example of the F1 Strategy Group’s encouragement to not only crank up the V6 turbocharged engines to 1000bhp, but to make racers look cool again. It’s wider, fat-tired and lined to perfection. We’re rooting for the matte black!

The Disappearing Screen is Here

The Disappearing Screen is Here

Remember the old rear-projection TV your grandparents had? The HTD -01 Concept is based on this outdated technology, but uses state-of-the-art techniques of transparency and holography. An LED projector integrated in the stand beams at a 4mm transparent acrylic display coated with an advanced foil that picks up the light. When it’s off the clear material leaves your room light and open without the eyesore of a large opaque monitor!

Petite Porsche SUV

Petite Porsche SUV

Almost the same size as a Porsche Cayman, the Nassau concept would be the smallest SUV in the brand’s lineup but would also have the capability of carrying not 2 but 4 passengers both on and off road. Under the hood, it’s the same plug-in hybrid powertrain featured in the Porsche 918. To contrast its diminutive size, the exterior design language is purposefully menacing and angry. One might say it’s the leaner, meaner Porsche SUV.

A Puzzling Lamp

A Puzzling Lamp

A little more “crafty” than the far-out modern designs we usually feature, this cleverly designed desk lamp is a totally fun build-it-yourself project! Made almost entirely of polywood, its assembled like a 3D puzzle before integrating the lighting unit itself. No screws, glues or nails, simply snap it together! Of course, you can deconstruct it just as easily for moving or storage.

Make Your Dinner Look Like It's From Heaven

Make Your Dinner Look Like It’s From Heaven

The everyday dinner plate becomes an interactive gadget in this entirely new dining experience called Light Dish. Originally, the dish was designed with a focus on molecular gastronomy, where food meets art and science. The Light Dish highlights food in a new, unexpected way, created a soft and diffused light. The top, made from solid Corian, hides a LED panel and battery for a seamless, smooth look whether on or off.

In Safe Waters

In Safe Waters

Cars are supposed to be watertight hence self-rescuing in the case of a car-water-drowning situation can get sticky. The “Self Rescuer” is a self-rescuer specially designed for this situation. It has three functions: cutting seat belt, breaking windows with pneumatic hammer, and extinguish fire with CO2. Simply deploy the window breaking mechanism and save yourself!

Straight Lines Made Simple

Straight Lines Made Simple

Tamás Fekete’s Vector Scissors are one of those designs that make you say “duh!” For the 99.9% of us who can’t cut a straight line, they make getting it right each time a cinch. The simplistic solution utilizes a straight edge (like the side of a table or desk) to ensure the cut is perfectly straight.
