The Mug That Won't Fall

The Mug That Won’t Fall

A big, computer-ruining spill at the designer’s office served as the inspiration behind this better, smarter mug! Powered by patented “Smartgrip” technology, its base creates a super powerful airlock when placed on a surface to counteract collisions. No suction cups or magnets, it lifts off the surface naturally when you need a sip. Check out the video to see how it says no to getting knocked over!

Courtly Cutlery

Courtly Cutlery

In creating Jarosinksi & Vaugoin’s design No. 192, Thomas Feichtner drew inspiration from the classic methods involved in producing utensils by hand, a process typically used by the manufactory. The resulting product employs a clever combination of clear surfaces and radiuses with a theme of two diametrically intersecting phases that together lend the cutlery a highly individual character. Robust yet refined, the collection is well-balanced for both casual and formal table setting alike.

An Entirely New BBQ

An Entirely New BBQ

Why is it called the “Social Barbecue?” Because it was designed to bring people together, creating an entirely new barbecuing experience through innovation! The first table-safe charcoal grill of its kind, now users can gather round the picnic table and take part in the process together rather than designate a single chef who’s isolated to the side. Similar to a fondue-style dining, it fosters a convivial atmosphere of sharing and entertainment!

Snack Packs for Snack Attacks

Snack Packs for Snack Attacks

Snack Packs are a snackers best bet for keeping two snacktime favorites together. The first is a jacket for your banana that keeps its contents and other items in your bag protected in the event of a smash! The other is a silicone snap band that wraps around yogurt containers to keep the lid closed and a spoon handy. Each is made of flexible, washable silicone so you can easily wrap them up and clean after use!

Algorithmically Crafted Cutting Boards

Algorithmically Crafted Cutting Boards

What initially began as a project to design door handles in Grasshopper design software, the shapes of the Pebble collection were inspired by the designer’s curiosity and explorations using algorithms. The result is 7 uniquely shaped boards that can be used for a variety of applications from serving to cutting. Included with each is a smooth, glossy porcelain dish or cup to compliment the natural wood material. They’re as curvy and comfortable to hold as they are tough to withstand years of use, making them a timeless addition to any kitchen!

Mind Over Food

Mind Over Food

Mind Power is potent and it can manipulate or simulate circumstances that may seem fictitious and surreal. Based on this premise is the plate and glass combo of the ‘SET TO MIMIC’ tableware. The idea is to put a microchip in us, which interacts with our brain cells so that it can register smells, tastes and textures of our favorite food. When bland or ‘health foods’ are placed on the plate, the microchip manipulates our senses to feel as if we are eating our favorite food.
