The Transforma t-shirt package will be adored by retailers and fashionistas alike! The clever design has a window that allows customers to both see the color of the t-shirt and feel the texture of the material. Once the user brings the package home, it can be recombined to double as a hanger! Composed of moulded paper pulp, it’s both recyclable and affordable. Watch the transformation —>

A Little Better Umbrella

A Little Better Umbrella

However necessary, the nature of an umbrella’s design, no matter how compact or easy to use, makes it somewhat cumbersome. If you’ve tried carrying anything in the rain then you know that feel! The Rotation Handle Umbrella is an easy fix that makes things just a little easier. The hooked handle rotates at the base, making it easy to throw a purse, sack, or grocery bag on so you and your goodies stay dry! Genius!

A New Design Notion

A New Design Notion

NTN’s premier product launch, called Collection 01, focuses on material likeness and a similar construction process to tie these otherwise unrelated objects together as a series. A thoughtful balance of aluminum, fabric and natural wood define each as a singular product, but a shared design language makes them shine as a group.

Watch This Ways

Watch This Ways

My watch is mine, and if you try peeking into it, you probably won’t be able to read the time. However if I wear the Followatch, you will be able to see the time correctly, with the dial facing towards you! Followatch always stands upright because it rotates freely thanks to the center of gravity. Awesome idea for sharing time!

The Story of MVMT Watches

The Story of MVMT Watches

It took me to an encounter with the MVMT Watch to understand that owning a high quality watch need not burn a hole in my pocket. Now I am not talking like a seasoned haute horology investor, but like a person who appreciates a well designed watch, crafted from quality materials and finds them within my reach. The MVMT Watches stem from the desire of young entrepreneurs and watch enthusiasts who wanted to “cut out the brand inflation” without compromising on the quality.

Zip It Up

Zip It Up

The +zip Series includes the +zip_shoe and +zip_cap, two very interesting designs that solve real problems. Let’s talk about the +zip_shoe first. This clever sneaker design has a zipped space in the sole, which integrates a shoe bag. The design makes packing shoes in your suitcase much easier and of course adds a spring to your step!

Lambos for Your Legs

Lambos for Your Legs

Upon seeing Lamborghini’s wild Veneno concept, experienced shoe designer Jeremiah Obuobi felt compelled to design a shoe that embodied the same design language. The result is this wicked-looking runner that, like the Lambo, is focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability to achieve a equally dynamic experience when the wearer tackles the road on foot rather than by car.

The Slim Edge

The Slim Edge

Measuring only 4 mm, The Edge is one of the thinnest titanium watches in the world. You would think that only big bulky watches can look sexy but The Edge Watch forces you to rethink that notion. This fully jeweled analogue quartz movement displays a slim stature of only 1.1 mm. A skeletal design, sapphire glass crystal encasing the purist dial and plain hands, create a subtle impact.

Bling Love: LINEA Collection, WIN Jewelry Worth$150!

Bling Love: LINEA Collection, WIN Jewelry Worth$150!

Say Aye: all those who love and get inspired by the iconic architecture in the Bay area and beyond; AYE! Taking her inspiration from shapes and engineering concepts from San Francisco’s diverse urban landscape, designer Vanessa Gade is launching a whole new jewelry collection titled LINEA. Past collections have been inspired by art deco architecture, ikebana, suspension bridges and criss-crossing power lines & I will not be surprised to find a hint of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sutro Tower and the SFMOMA, in some of these new pieces.

The Inflatable Hanger

The Inflatable Hanger

Not as crazy as it sounds! There have been plenty of proposed solutions for replacing the wire clothes hanger, and like the others, the Tango hanger focuses on saving the neckline of shirts… but in an entirely innovative and unique way! The design focuses on the use of a tube and pump system. Place the deflated tube into the shirt and squeeze the pump at the top to start inflating. When you’re ready to wear a shirt, simply release the air and take the shirt!
