Square Coffee

Square Coffee

I’m in love with this electric kettle serving set called Friend’s Coffee. The designer wanted to keep it simple and tame the design aesthetics of traditional hot drink sets. The result is a monolithic design; a kettle and 4 serving mugs all set on a large load tray. The tray can be unplugged at anytime to be properly served from. Beautiful design.

Rolling Out with Heat

Rolling Out with Heat

Let me tell you something. I’m at the age where I’m looking into saving space at the same time as I’m growing OUT of the life of a college student. You know what that means? It means I’m trying to collect items for my living space that will last, and not just be convenient for me (and my tiny, growing family) in the meantime. Thusly, I’m looking very intently at this project right here: the “Electrolux Invico.” It’s a concept by designer Njegos Lakic in which this device both has the ability to prepare a warm meal AND be put completely away, leaving that extra space when I need it.

Garlic And Onion Totally Cubed

Garlic And Onion Totally Cubed

One of the stinkiest jobs in the kitchen is to peel and chop onions and garlic! The pungent smell lingers on my nails inspite of repeated washes! This is why I think we need the Garlizi, a magical kitchen tool that will grind/chop and store the garlic and onion as ready-to-use cubes….like the cheese cubes we buy at stores! A few back-n-forth turns to the wheel and the job is done. Don’t believe me? Watch the video….

Yellow Looks Good On Coffee

Yellow Looks Good On Coffee

For the first time I’m spying a Yellow Coffee Machine and I quite like it. Designed by Yaniv Berg, the piece has been inspired by works of the Italians designers and the Bauhaus stream of thought, hence the simple and minimal touch. The machine integrates 3 tubes for brewing and a definitive upper plate to keep the cups. What I want to know, is that will it brew my favorite blend of java or does it need a Yellow Submarine for company!

Orbital Force In Washing Clothes

Orbital Force In Washing Clothes

What are your steps for laundry at home? Sorting clothes in separate baskets, loading the washer with the first batch and then adjusting the detergent…finally get the washed batch out into a basket and dry em up. Load the next! How about cutting a few steps in the process, revamping the concept of washing machines and getting you an Orbital? The machine-drum here is the basket…two baskets actually, white for the whites and blue for the color clothes.

Racy Tendencies For Coffee

Racy Tendencies For Coffee

If I were to pick out 5 quirky ways to brew my java, I’d pick the Cemented Joy, Coffee Stick, Finger Cup, Wooden Passion and the Racepresso! The last one being a new addition needs special mention. What gives me the kicks, is that it will fit perfectly into retro-styled interiors…from the 70’s-80’s era where it was all about having loud, faux-branded unique collectables! So very Kitsch!

Tumble Dry In Vacuum

Tumble Dry In Vacuum

DryMate is a clothes dryer that uses a new vacuum technology to dry clothes at lower temperature. As a result lesser energy is consumed, and heat-related damage to the clothes is avoided. The dryer scores another brownie point for being easily accessible from a standing position. To aid its stand further, a 9 degree tilt and a wide-mouth drum has been incorporated to the design. The rounded exterior gives a refreshing new form to the redundant cuboids that we see at homes.

Cement Your Love For Coffee

Cement Your Love For Coffee

Concrete, ideal for building homes and roads but is it good enuf for a coffee machine? Tough question to answer, but apparently we can take Shmuel Linski’s help on this coz he’s designed one. The rugged appeal and the delectable cracks in its form; Espresso Solo looks smoking hot in this cemented avatar! Shmuel has kept the project simple, the machine makes only espresso: short and long. A chamber for the beans and an outlet for water are all that it features. No fuss, just solid love for caffeine and irresistible forms!

Just like “Whose Line is it Anyways”, two million points for guessing what this is! No prize money, but a big round of applause from us! Hint: It’s not a TREE!

The Heating Element

The Heating Element

At first glance you can easily mistake the Toolip for a hand blender, but surprise-surprise, it’s a hand-held heating rod! Yup, the sorts that can be used to make a cuppa coffee or re-heat baby’s food. A sleek panel on the handle sports the display, which tells you the stats like temperature and a red button at its base, releases the element so that you can wash it separately. Apparently the Toolip heats up faster than your regular electric kettle and hardly displaces any liquid during this process. It’s been designed to be used in any container that has a diameter of at least 3” and a filling height of at least 2”.

Replicators - How Real Today?

Replicators – How Real Today?

You’ve all seen Star Trek – at least pieces of it, here or there. You might even know what I’m referring to when I say this project we’re about to discuss is a real-world iteration of the original matter replicator. Truly an innovation that would change the world, that’s what this is. It’s called “The Joy Concept” and it’s designed by Ali (Jeff) Jafari. Replicate a stack of plates, just like that, then just as fast turn them back into dust.
