Best of Best: Top 30 Posts on Yanko Design, 2014

As Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”, 2014 has been a year of acquiring more imagination than anything else. For dreamers are the crazy lot that can achieve the impossible! The world of design saw dreamers translating their imagination into path breaking innovations; the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch serve as a good example. At Yanko Design we saw some clever inspiring designs, and we’d like to recap them for you. Here’s the Top 30 Designs from 2014 … take a look…

The Awesomeness of a Quadcopter

The Awesomeness of a Quadcopter

The innovative FLEYE is a Quadcopter that brings home stunning images from the locales it flies over. Combined with the app, it’s essentially a service that allows you to experience places that may be distant on paper but accessible via the app. Explore in-depth travel destinations and get reviews from other visitors before actually visiting a place. I think its quite apt for our generation where we get so little leisure time and would like to make the most of our vacations.

The New Needle

The New Needle

For those of my friends who like to do needlepoint, I have a great design here; one that will remove all frustrations when it comes to dropped needles. The 20° Needle is a great concept – it features a 20° bend on the eye and this helps you pick it up, should it ever fall down. The bend is slight enough for you to sew easily without a hitch.

The Easy e-Bike

The Easy e-Bike

Electric bikes currently on the market are largely U-G-L-Y. This e-bike by Kasper Jensen, however, proves that power-assisted doesn’t have to mean poor aesthetic. Its form takes inspiration from aggressive sports car styling and features a robust, muscular, monocoque frame that’s enhanced by minimally visible hardware. An integrated touchscreen mounted just before the handlebars provides users with battery life, time and GPS location information.

Quick and Painless Airport Security

Quick and Painless Airport Security

The Accordia bag aims to ease stress during the air travel check-in process by streamlining the security screening. Provided to passengers by the airport itself, the bag unfolds into compartments that are each dedicated to specific types of items like electronics, food, clothing, and so on. Security personnel are also trained to examine the bags in a more efficient way so you can get on your way!

Mother Nature's Bertoia

Mother Nature’s Bertoia

The latest from Ol’ha Shevchenko’s imaginative collection of nature and bio-inspired line of home furnishings, the Maple Leaf Chair mimics the form of the iconic leaf of the same name. Molded from recyclable polypropylene with a glossy finish, the leaf secures the seated user, wrapping them comfortably in its blades.

The Toaster Just Got Smarter

The Toaster Just Got Smarter

This functional twist on the toaster maintains the same minimalism as the classic upright toaster, but has some new and improved features! The first is a digital timer screen so you can gauge exactly how long your toast has left. This also means you’ll know exactly the right time and heat seating so you get it right each time. The second is a nesting tong built in to the side. It saves fingers from burning and when it’s removed it triggers the device to turn off so you never have to worry about accidentally leaving it on!

A Case of the Doodles

A Case of the Doodles

The Lumdoo Duo case for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus artfully plays on contrasts- from the choice of materials to the use of color. The color scheme combines a monochromatic black or white frame with a fluorescent highlight color panel that doubles as a basic tablet! You can write or draw on it using any source of light. Leave yourself temporary reminders or just doodle for fun! Get it here.

Memory Cabinet

Memory Cabinet

If you are as clumsy as me, then your USB Sticks, SD Cards and Memory drives are all placed in an organized pile of chaos at the back of your drawer. Given the varied sizes, the point of organizing this set of devices in one place is a task. To make it easy, we have here the Cabinet, a modular HDD, USB, and SD CARD storage with integrated devices. Check out their compact ‘library book style’. Sweet!

Jet Powered Rescue

Jet Powered Rescue

When it comes to lifeguard rescues, seconds can mean the difference between life and death. With this in mind, the ResQ board was designed specifically to cut rescue time in torrential waters which generally take longer to tackle. The power-assisted device is driven by tandem electric motors via water-jet propulsion. Because it’s intended to be used near sunny areas, each is rechargeable on a solar docking station.

Air Purifying Art Piece

Air Purifying Art Piece

Fed up with ugly-as-sin appliances, Julio Ramirez’s “Baldrr” (named after the Norse god of light and purity) is an artistic take on the air purifier that aims to look as fresh as it makes your air! Mounted on your wall or propped as a tabletop focal point, the symmetrical sculpture blends in as decor while it works to make your air cleaner.

What's Hidden in These Handlebars?

What’s Hidden in These Handlebars?

Coincidentally, I just finished a nighttime bike ride and totally needed my lights… only, they were stolen. It happens! If only my lights were built in and secured somehow. That’s precisely the idea behind MagVis. These handy bicycle grips have a built-in light and can be hidden in the hallow handlebar. When the bike isn’t in use, the lights are near invisible! They’re easily recharged with a USB cable so you’re always prepared. Genius!
