Ladder? No way! Ratchet!

Ladder? No way! Ratchet!

I didn’t ratchet my way into writing this article, I just hammered it out. But that’s not what Itay Laniado is all about. Itay Laniado designed this magnificent set of material, metal, and wood. It’s a ladder that’s got nothing holding it together but a single ratchet. And what’s best about that? Collapsibility. Lots and lots of collapsibility that means you can jam this ladder in just about any crack or nook.

Solar Power Spikes for Plants

Solar Power Spikes for Plants

Literally listed as a “solar powered gardener wannabee helper.” It is a guide for any gardener on a sort of small garden (or potentially giant garden) project that needs a little bit more than eyeballing. It’s a set of spikes you jab into the ground, each of them powered by the sun, each of them made to relay information to you about the moisture and nutrient levels of the soil, as well as sun exposure and temperatures the plants are receiving.

Enemies of Garden

Enemies of Garden

Friends at last! For what greater enemy does a vase have than a baseball? Maybe a cat. But that’s not important right now, because this is the “VaseBall!” In fact it has little to do with baseball at all, and a lot more to do with water and magnets. As you’re soon to see, the base of this vase and the top of the base of the vase each have magnets. When the water in the vase is too low, the lightness and the opposites in the poles make the ball lift!

A Fusion of Flower Framework

A Fusion of Flower Framework

Not so much to keep the flower upright, but to keep it alive! It is two in one. It is the most basic brilliance, the most simplistic, smart design – two of hearts, two hearts that beat as one! In this case, two bits of pottery, made one. Instead of there being a pot with a hole or holes below it being held by a saucer that would hold water, it’s both of those things in one piece! Take a peek and drip a little dribble.

One Pot, Two Lives

One Pot, Two Lives

No drugs! Only fishes and plants. Not weed! Thought I bet it’d be extra cool if-no! This is a planter and a fishtank. You put your regularly potted plant in this pot on top, and a goldfish on the bottom. What could they provide for eachother, you might ask? Waste! Yes, the fishes turn their eaten bait remnants into nutrients for the plant, while the water fed to the plant is filtered as it passes though and becomes clean for the fish. It is a totally natural and lovely system.

Dis is no Chicken Egg

Dis is no Chicken Egg

Let’s get to planting for a moment here, yes? Let’s discuss how this design called the “EggPot” really works. It’s all about humidification. Humidity? Yes. The way the egg sits in the pot there, it collects. Collects the sweat of the world through the natural processes of Mother Nature. And you don’t even have to work out to make it get fed! Come with me, fellow designers, and crack this egg on your mind grapes so we can make jelly.

The Business Of Re-potting Plants

The Business Of Re-potting Plants

I’m not so updated with the green business, but I’m sure folks who have an active green thumb understand the nuances of “Re-potting a Plant” and the burden that comes with proper transfer of plants from one pot to the other. Re-flowerpot looks at doing away with the heartbreak of losing a sapling due to its incorrect transfer. The pot simply breaks-up into two parts, kinda like a mold for your soil and plant. Happy Re-potting to you!

Water In Thin Air

Water In Thin Air

We all know about water vapor, and its laws for condensation. Applying this law to the “Dew Drop”, we have a device that is capable of extracting water from the air, condensing it and utilizing it for watering plants. All you need to do is insert the artificial leaf into the soil, plug it on and wait for stuff to happen!

Do Not Shake Vase

Do Not Shake Vase

We’ve had our share of vase concepts here on Yanko Design, and this is definitely one of them. It’s strikingly similar to a previous “framed vase” design we published some months ago, but it’s unique in it’s shape and execution. The line holding the frame is a wire, the wire bone’s connected to the light bone, and the light shines on the plant. Super cute.

25 Homeopathic Years of Brita

25 Homeopathic Years of Brita

Designer Julien Hadley had the task of branding a gesture marking 25 years of Brita water filters. Hadley chose the phrase “We’ve Got a Plan” to note Brita’s aim to promote a more sustainable approach to consumerism and how people use products. Environmental responsibility! Along with that is this lovely plant plan: “My-oan” – a platform that enables users to grow homeopathic plants on their own, in their own home.

Raking Up Some Fun

Raking Up Some Fun

Fall’s almost here and the lawn looks pretty dandy with all the leaves falling. I don’t break a sweat coz it’s not my part of the chores, but I do feel for my husband who has to do all the raking. Here’s where concepts like Power Rake can come handy. Unlike the traditional comb-n-handle ones, this one features a conveyer belt system with well-spaced teeth and a sack to catch the booty. Powered by the kinetic motion of the front wheel, the rake glides over the grass and devours all the mess.
