For The Love Of Coffee – Mugs Available At YD Store

Born in a house where tea-drinkers thrived, I was the outcast and was treated as odd moody mad-eye for loving coffee! Just to jibe everyone, I would go out and buy myself the most exclusive coffee mug in town and would savor my treat in it. This would naturally irk my mom, but me being me…I soon had a collection of quirky and snazzy mugs! Did you know that the YD Store too had some awesome coffee mugs in their collection? Here’s a peek…maybe you’ll end up with an enviable collection yourself!

Are You 100% Korean This September?

Are You 100% Korean This September?

Delve into the archives of Yanko Design and you’ll notice that 6 out of 10 designs are by Korean Designers! It’s never been a calculated attempt on our part, but the truth is that their ideas and concepts are so innovative and in-sync with “good design”, that it is hard to ignore. Many of you write in to ask how we find out about these designers; I can’t give out our trade secret, but I can direct you to a place where you can meet them in person and maybe share your passion for design. The Korea Pavilion will be set up at the 100% Design London, this September.

James Dyson Awards: The Top 20 Projects

James Dyson Awards: The Top 20 Projects

I’ve been a witness to many squabbles between designers & engineers who can’t seem to look beyond form or function. While engineers are right in their place to comment on the practicality of a project, designers are equally correct in dreaming futuristic scenarios. To cultivate both the workability & alluring aspects of design, the James Dyson Awards encourages students from the world over to “design something that solves a problem.” In an attempt to please both the faculties and to prove my point, let’s look at this year’s Top 20 entries that are shortlisted for the grand prize!
