The Evenflo Story With solidThinking Inspire

The Evenflo Story With solidThinking Inspire

To talk the talk is easy, but to walk the talk is a different ball game. What I mean is that most software companies simply leverage big words to deliver their speech but little else to validate their claims. However with solidThinking you are assured that they deliver what the promise. For example, with the solidThinking Inspire, they promise to offer a common visual language for engineering and ID. This is what infant equipment manufacturer Evenflo have to say….

Mindplar: Designed Differently!

Mindplar: Designed Differently!

Kickstarter success stories seem to be very heart-warming, but the truth of the matter is that there is a great amount of sweat, blood and tension expended, just to get the finished products out to the backers. Mindplar’s story is no different than this, however they have managed to sustain and emerge as design studio that has carved their own path. The DEFENDE & ELITE are two awesome bumpers for the iPhone that are designed differently and boast impeccable lineage.

The X – Pen Magic

The X – Pen Magic

For a person who gets inspired by fine writing instruments, it should be easy for me to articulate my opinion about the X – Pen, but for some odd reason I have a block! I think it stems from the fact that I equated well designed pens with the high-end brands. The X – Pen has forced me to rewire my thinking & take into consideration that lovingly crafted pens can be equally inspiring, distinguished and exude the same amount of confidence that a Porsche Design TecFlex or a Mont Blanc can!

I Heart Stooka

I Heart Stooka

I am writing this article on the Stooka Chair, curled up in my hotel bed, from one of the trendiest boutique hotels of Singapore. The kinds that focuses only on chairs! It’s ironic that this hipster place has all kinds of seating options from eras gone by, but not one that boasts of being sustainable, multifunctional, portable, easy to store and more importantly eco-friendly. Perhaps I should talk to them about the Stooka.

15 Best of Best 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept Winners

15 Best of Best 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept Winners

Two kisses on the runway, plenty of dance moves, one South Korean traditionally dressed gal and loads of excitement later, I am finally back in my room. Its almost 2:30 am here in Singapore, and I cannot get sleep until I recap this Bedazzling red dot awards night! Ken Koo and Peter Zec took to the stage and set the ball rolling for an evening of celebrations. This year, many things were done differently; first off yours truly was the onsite video reporter and had a videographer follow me everywhere. Videos coming later…

Candid With Ken Koo – What is Design Thinking?

Candid With Ken Koo – What is Design Thinking?

You best know him as the man behind the red dot awards – concept design, Singapore, however I know Ken Koo as the visionary behind many design initiatives across this island country. We almost lost him to the world of finance, with his degree in accountancy; Ken began his career with numbers. But like they say … Accenture’s loss is now the design fraternity’s gain! I hope to turn my many conversations with Ken into a bustling series, and that you readers and I can pick his brains on topics related to the business of design.

Yube Modular Furniture

Yube Modular Furniture

I am going through the painful process of redecorating my home office.
