Better Than Disposable Plates

Better Than Disposable Plates

I think Mina Song’s idea for an inflatable plate called the “Air Dish” is quite a sound one. You’re on a picnic and you care for the environment so you use the garbage can to dispose your used paper plates. But still that’s waste of plates/resources right. Change the scene and use the vinyl Air Dish instead: inflate it, use it, rinse it, fold and stow it….no bother of disposing it anytime soon. Just be careful about pricking it.

Give Your Fruits A Hug

Give Your Fruits A Hug

I like no-fuss minimal designs especially for my interiors. Nothing like some subtle white whirls with a hollow space to envelope a bunch of fruits. That’s simply the Hug Bowl for you. White Solid Surface with gradients akin to an arena. Let them give your oranges and melons a big hug!

Concrete Drinking

Concrete Drinking

The City Rain Concrete Glass is a labor of love, really! It’s not only a scientific process of mixing the right amount of concrete (calculating the percentage of admixture), keeping the cement wet and painstakingly handcrafting the set. It’s also nurturing each piece for almost a week, coz that’s how long it takes to manufacture them. Now why would someone go through these labor pains, one may ask? It’s so that you get the feel of “wet street and glass window”, just for kicks! It’s eyecandy as well!

How Feasible a DYO Desk Future?

How Feasible a DYO Desk Future?

I say DYO instead of DYI because instead of this being based on doing it yourself, it’s more of a design it yourself sort of situation. This project is called “Xylem” and it begins on the computer. Benches and tiny tables is what we’re making here, the programming language called “Processing” is the design tool. Limits are in play, and play is what you’re allowed to do. Anything you make will be real-world safe, and all you’ve got to pay for is what you made.

Glass Half Full…Always

Glass Half Full…Always

Did you ever contemplate whether your glass was half empty or half full? Thank heavens designer Alissia Melka-Teichroew did some thinking, and came up with these really classy InsideOut series. Martini Glasses and Champagne Flutes made out of hand-blown borosilicate glass. It has the advantage of double-walled glass, which provides insulation, thus keeping your drink colder for longer.

Punch A Knife And Some Forks

Punch A Knife And Some Forks

To keep this story short, Bamboo Slips for Picnic is a very practical usage of bamboo and hemp, which results in this sheet of press-out cutlery. The thin sheet of bamboo features cut-outs of spoon, knife, and fork. Naturally you would use this disposable set at picnics or in school, office or on the go. The cool part is that you can creatively use the remainder portion as a coaster, a fruit plate or something equally imaginative.

Cups for Conscience

Cups for Conscience

I always enjoy a good cup of facts! What have a just drunk? You should always ask yourself that. Or what have I got the opportunity to drink, here? You’d be wiser to ask. Our pal Hans A Huseklepp teams up with two other designers to bring you this lovely set of ceramic tableware for Milan Expo 2015.

Facts of the world.

Back to 3D Basics

Back to 3D Basics

If you are the sort of person that’s got their fingers in the 3D rendering world, you might know about computer graphics researcher Martin Newell. In 1975 he took it upon himself to digitize his own Melitta teapot. Since then the teapot has become a common symbol, a basic project for every 3D object worker and designer. What Art Lebedev studio’s done here is to take that concept, that teapot, and push it back into the real. Red, green, blue, and alpha.

Tea Time, Modenn FLO Review

Tea Time, Modenn FLO Review

Love me a cup of homemade tea, don’t you? I haven’t heard much about this Canadian brand  Modenn but one of my favorite design studios (OHM) designed it and were kind enough to send me one for review. Hands down it trumps any generic tea set and it was a good excuse to put aside my Sorapot (which isn’t a tea set) and steep the traditional way. Hit the jump and come join me. I gots me a story to tell.

Crazy Cutlery With Identity Crisis

Crazy Cutlery With Identity Crisis

Does the Chopork have an identity crisis? Like would you classify it as a fork or a chopstick or both? Nah! I wouldn’t bother much about the functionality of two sticks turning from a fork to chopsticks. I’d be worried about branding it as Chopork; sounds more like chop-the-pork! Got any better name suggestions?

Gorgeous Helen

Gorgeous Helen

Helen is Gorgeous and who am I to dispute that! Whoever said women are jealous of each other and can never praise each other’s beauty…..ermmm was right! The only reason why I praise Gorgeous Helen is coz she’s not an actual person, but a set of lampshades for your wine glasses. Wicked me! Anyway, this creative piece of parchment shade comes in 3 different styles: illuminating imprints of pleats, pearls and fringes.
