Room Division Done Right

Room Division Done Right

As urban living faces space challenges, this design team has a good solution to make most of the limited carpet area that your home may have. Cook&Bath is a clever construction and room division that allows you to make the most of the space restrictions. In a way, it eliminates an entire wall and uses a centralized bathroom-shower space as the room division. An interesting way to demark the kitchen, living and bedroom space!

DO let your eyes deceive you!

DO let your eyes deceive you!

Move around the Eye+ window and you’ll soon forget that it’s not a window at all! The clever screen doesn’t just display favorite outdoor landscapes, but also uses a camera and sensor system that detect the viewer’s motion to shift the image depending on their perspective. Move to the right to see what’s hidden behind the left border or move closer to enlarge the image and vice versa! See it in action —>

Musical Stairs

Musical Stairs

Leander Angerer and David Ross’ revamp of this late Victorian staircase introduces subtle modern touches to accentuate the classical style. Tennis racket string sewn into the handrail replaces the banisters while a floating marble plinth replaces the first step. Other extraneous parts were taken away and hand-modified to give it a lighter, renewed aesthetic. Not only nice to look at, the strings can also be plucked, turning the house itself into a giant musical instrument!

The Island Kitchen Is Finally Here

The Island Kitchen Is Finally Here

Space crunch + kitchen has always equalled to a compromised kitchen. Realistically speaking, designer Massimo Facchinetti has nailed it with his Ecooking vertical kitchen. This single module kitchen is a hub for sustainable cooking. The technologies of the project highlight energy-saving systems, and come integrated with an internal retrieval of energy system. This is achieved thanks to the close proximity and interaction of appliances with each other and the exchange of heat and moisture.

Shower Power

Shower Power

Showering is supposed to be a catharsis of the day and of our daily environmental exposure. The last thing we should be dirtying up is our conscience with wasteful habits like using up way too much life-giving water. The “Sshower” for Roca was conceived by designer Marco Antonio Esquiró San Román for that very reason. With built in sensors that can automatically detect when you are actually under the shower head, this shower will turn of the stream and replace it with steam until you are ready to rinse off.

Finally, a Handsome Heater

Finally, a Handsome Heater

The Slice hydronic radiator provides exceptional radiant heat to your home, while adding style, efficiency, and added functionality with its convenient hideaway seat. It’s a perfect supplemental heating system for mounting near drafty windows or colder areas of your home, but also makes for a great personal warmer-upper! Imagine it next to your front door where you can plop down after coming in from the cold, or having it in your bathroom as a place to sit after getting out of the shower. Do want!

Bird Feeder, Sofas And More…

Bird Feeder, Sofas And More…

Polish designer Jan Kochański showcased his studio projects to us and we simply loved his unique take on furniture and product design. I loved the simple yet artistically developed Fiu Fiu bird feeder and the MobiUse – mass use mobile chairs made from paper pulp. Hit the jump to experience some innovative and thought provoking projects.

Kult Control

Kult Control

I love the ring to domotics, which was incidentally coined by Journalist Bruno de Latour by condensing domestic and robotics. Intelligent homes are a fast growing phenomena and the range of user interfaces with web applications for the control of homes, featuring stunning design and intuitive graphic, is only just expanding. Kult is is a domotic interface that is simple to use.

Stunning Achromatic Studio

Stunning Achromatic Studio

This modern studio is all about openness and transparency from one section to the next- so much so that anyone with privacy issues might find themselves feeling vulnerable. Corner to corner, the viewer’s perspective shifts from light to dark, inside to out. The minimal aesthetic is contrasted by dark grey tones and raw textures of concrete, wood, marble and steel. A single colorful object, designer Igor Sirotov’s signature rubber duck, is hiding somewhere – see if you can find it.

Where Did The Monitor Go?

Where Did The Monitor Go?

It got a new lease of life and became this trendy table to hold books and other stuff. You have to love the simplistic approach adopted by Low Yi Siu in crafting the Rebirth magazine rack. Over the years we have accumulated a lot of e-waste and one great way of reusing the discarded cathode-ray-tube (CRT) computer monitor, is this. Emotional, iconic, call it whatever you want, but the retro appeal of this table is bound to be a conversation piece.

When you think of a clothing iron – the kind you use to get clothing both dry and flat – you think of heat, and you think of how much it hurts to get burned. With the Up&Down Safety Iron, there’s no more to worry about – when you’re not holding on tight, the iron retracts – how simple!
