Lantern of Knowledge

Lantern of Knowledge

One way of looking at the Internet is that it is the largest library ever constructed. Having a library, or a way to store human creativity, is important because any future advancement requires a foundation of accumulated knowledge. Of all the ways humans have come up with for passing on information (oral traditions to the printed), the Internet is the best we’ve created thus far. Yet, only ⅓ of humanity has access to the Internet. Bridging this gap is the Lantern, a portable data receiving device; here’s why you need to get your hands on one.

Red Dot Awards: Design Concept and Yanko Design Party Hard – Part 1

As the jury member of the 2014 Red Dot Awards: Design Concept, Yanko Design’s Takashi Yamada was asked why he focuses on concept design so much. His answer was simple, finished products are not as innovative as concept designs. It’s all about the imagination and inspiration that goes behind creating a great product. The key words – inspiration, imagination and innovation can lead to path-breaking Product Design. As always, we were there at Singapore to cover the 2014 Awarding Ceremony.

Neat Pair of Headphones

Neat Pair of Headphones

Headphones these days are either over packed with features or over packed with design. Finding a pair that balances the two is quite difficult. When Grain Audio announced their Over Ear Headphones (OEHP.01), we at Yanko Design got quite excited, because here was a pair that offered impeccable acoustics, superb design and a complete Sonic Experience. The equation balances just beautifully!
