One Plate, Three Bits of Food

One Plate, Three Bits of Food

This is the plate right here. It’s got three plates, but it is also one plate. At the same time! At the exact same time, this plate is both one plate and three plates. How do you do!? You do so well, so well now that you’ve got this plate which separates all your foods into three in such a clever, clever way. You join your meal of several foods into one, yet the plates are not joined! Not joined until the food gathers together in a party in your stomach! Well no more.

No More Hot Hands

No More Hot Hands

I love my hot tea but it’s always a balancing act to keep the cup from scalding my hands. And what about the tea bag? Some way or another, the tail end drops into the water and becomes a game to see how fast I can fish it out. The Double Wall Tea Cup eases my woes. It keeps heat away from my hands without the need of a handle and has a little notch at the base to keep my tea bag tag from getting away. Brills!

Don’t Iron Bras At Work

Don’t Iron Bras At Work

We are on a Lebedev overdrive today and rightly so. Their concepts are seemingly perfect for today’s fun day! What we have in this batch is a coffee mug re-design that puts the “energy of hot coffee to practical use.” In simple terms, the heat from your piping hot coffee-filled mug “Ironius” can be used to iron out a few creases of your shirt. Perfectly handy for those naughty ones who indulge in office romances. *Nina in her silky black bra are not included in the package!

Chocolate Is Sexy

Chocolate Is Sexy

Chocolate – it’s sensual, sexual, and delicious; known the world over for its mood altering properties and palette pleasuring sensibilities. We’re not supposed to play with food but Forplay is a concept near and dear to my heart. It explores the three main ways chocolate is enjoyed: licking, melting, and pouring. Ooh how scintillating!

Air Dried And Bacteria Free!

Air Dried And Bacteria Free!

One of the best and hygienic ways of drying the dishes is airing them. Nothing like some good old sunrays to do the job! Stackable Cups encourages this habit by featuring four projections that allow the water to drain out completely, when you stack glasses one-on-top-of-the-other. Stacked wet glasses generally stick to each other and pulling them apart can get tricky; so this design kinda resolves that issue too. Moreover, they make the set look kitsch!

Balanced Diet For Two

Balanced Diet For Two

So you lovebirds think you can lead a balanced life, eat balanced meals and stay on the same wavelength on every issue? I got a test for you two; try eating from this SeeSaw Dining Plate! It’s got only one rule….the plate must stay balanced at all times; similar pace with similar actions will help you through! If you’re out of sync, you’ll break the equilibrium and obviously fail my test. Hands Up all those who would like to give it a try!

For The Love Of Coffee

For The Love Of Coffee

I think I’ve confessed one too many times that tho I’m a coffee addict, I just can’t spend too much time nurturing it. There are actually freaks like me who LOVE instant coffee and don’t want to do the grinding-percolating routine. Which is why I simply adore this ceramic-glass fusion called Coffee Set. It’s a cup with a slotted bottom that holds in just right amount of coffee powder and water, for you to stir the mixture with the handle. Yup no spoons required! The design gets even more interesting with the saucer, which has a missing bottom!

Considering a Slice of Cake

Considering a Slice of Cake

Yay let’s have a party! I’d eat cake every day if I could! I remember when I first went to college, I ate icecream every night. Designers at WAGAii are considering how to cut the cake. Really! Each box of Petals consists of a single plastic flower. With it, you can cut a cake perfectly into 3, 4, 6, 12, 5, 7, 8, 9, or 10 pieces. I didn’t get lost in there! There’s two ways to cut! So many options, one single flower of plastic.

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

I’m suffering from cute overload because this concept is just too… well, cute! The Children’s Cutlery and Dinner Set (they can do better than that) attempts to tie in the joys of eating with a bit of education. Kids can learn about animals while training to use flatware. Where’s the adult version huh? I want lions, panthers, bears, and a platypus. Yea a PLATYPUS. I want the plate to be a training stage for real manly eating – a Mortal Combat dining experience if you will.

For The Aging Chinese In A Western-styled Care Facility

For The Aging Chinese In A Western-styled Care Facility

The LUNE Dinnerware may have noble intentions but somehow it negates the pure essence of porcelain and art. Craftsmanship and aesthetic appeal is top-notch: the dishes incorporate culturally familiar forms and symbols that are raised to promote better posture and thermal for keeping the food warm. Design Philosophy-wise; it’s this Chinese style dishes meant for retirement homes and homes for the aged where Western-styled cuisine is served to Oriental folks.

Radiator Mug For Cold Hands

Radiator Mug For Cold Hands

There is a reason why this coffee mug is called the Radiator Mug, the bottom fins (called heat sinks) take inspiration from the radiator mechanics found within the PC or an engine, to keep things cool. Likewise these ceramic fins eliminate the need for a handle and keep your hands cool while holding a steaming cuppa coffee/tea.
