A Shopaholic's Christmas

A Shopaholic’s Christmas

If you’ve lived in a hostel, you’ve definitely tried to hang more than one item of clothing on a single wardrobe hook. My record is three shirts, one hook. You tend to find ways to maximize usage, don’t you? The Orga Cart appeals to that nature. Designed to help you carry everything (believe me, I’m not exaggerating), the cart has mods for every possible scenario, making it easier to shop till you drop.

Clasp and Cook

Clasp and Cook

In light of everything being portable, it’s only fair that cooking stoves go that way too. The Clasp Range is a portable stove that is lightweight, easy to charge and totally ready for the go. Think camping, picnics and BBQ Parties and more, designed to fit both indoors and outdoors, I love the handgrip and collapsible elements to the design.

Avian-inspired Architecture

Avian-inspired Architecture

At the entrance of the landmark city of Mashhad, Iran, this “living architecture” is inspired by the birds inhabiting the city’s Imam Reza shrine, where tourists flock to take in the architecture & avian dwellers. Driving visitors are greeted by a 28 meter high pillar with moving wings powered when incoming vehicles drive over a subtle bump connected to system of cables & gears. Nestled amidst the ancient backdrop, this modern marvel stands out as both a tribute to one of the city’s historic attractions & a symbol of its importance in the world of tomorrow.

Siri needs her beauty sleep

Siri needs her beauty sleep

I guess the most natural way to charge your phone would be to prescribe it some bedrest. The phone is becoming increasingly human (like in the movie Her, for example) and visually, we could do better than plugging a cord into our phone to invigorate it. The designers at Aerios created the classiest bed/lounging chair for your smartphone. Modeled in beautiful Australian timber, the wireless charger is truly spectacular looking. Either lay your mobile down on it, or adjust the kickstand and prop your device up on its throne of sorts.

The Eternally Future-proof Smartphone!

The Eternally Future-proof Smartphone!

This concept, by 91 Mobiles, aims to be the end-of-the-line for smartphones… and it really does leave little to be desired. Modular/replaceable hardware for easy and endless upgrading, lifelike holographic video projection, a Lytro full field-depth camera, a vibration transducer speaker system, and super-capacitors with 10x the life of regular batteries. Not to forget, that transparent polymer OLED display with 4k resolution! It all seems to be there… maybe it’s the last jump before body implanted tech!

Designed to Chair-ish

Designed to Chair-ish

Petra Salarić’s Z Chair is proof there’s space for art in everything we do, no matter how simple. Named for the characteristic Z shape of its sides, the unique form provokes pondering its construction despite being composed of a minimum of overall material. With a simple contrast of color and shape, users won’t just see a chair as a chair, but a thoughtful combination of purposeful pieces.

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*
