Fan The Feng

Fan The Feng

Feng is a dynamic floor fan with an encompassing hood, crafted from laser-cut aluminum. It features glossy, low-slip rubber trimmings for protection and stability. Inspired by the pictorial Chinese characters 风 (feng), meaning wind, the fan has only one speed – fast enough to breeze you up on a warm summer day. I think its unique form is delectable and appropriate for a bachelor pad.

Living with Spiders

Living with Spiders

Unfortunately, having eight legs, fangs & a face that isn’t very attractive doesn’t usually win spiders any favors. Call me crazy but I love ‘em & to this day have never killed one. In fact, they’re the only thing I am superstitious about. The Co-Habitation planter incorporates a hollow space fit with an LED light that attracts insects to help these little guys to do their job killing. It’s a natural bug zapper, if you will. For gardeners who know that spiders deserve a place, if not in your heart, in your planter.

Mathematically Timing

Mathematically Timing

The deceptively cool looking Clockus is one heavy-duty brain-drain that takes off from where the IQ Clock left us. It presents you with a rudimentary math problem every hour so if you want the time, brush up on your addition, subtraction and multiplication tables. For you math geniuses, Clockus can serve up questions in the 24hr format. Oooh double digits!

That's a Really Low Table

That’s a Really Low Table

If you really like low profile tables, you’ll love the Lowbay by Han Koning. I’m actually very smitten with how it looks. There’s a simplicity in the design that I love and yet the exposed ridges of the table top lend confidence in the construction because you can see how he bent the layers of wood. It’s a “complex simplicity” if you will.  It’s 118×60 in size and technically a limited edition called “white”, although I don’t see anything white about it, except Mr. Koning… and his shirt… and his glasses.

Gone With The Wind

Gone With The Wind

Have you ever opened a window and said to yourself, “damn Gina, it’s windy.” Harness that energy with the AERO E. Energy is converted from wind to electricity and transferred wirelessly through induction. Place your cellphone on the charing pad and be the envy of your tree hugging neighbors! The accompanying app allows you to connect to your turbine and track wind patterns and charge times too.

Split Personalities

Split Personalities

There’s a natural human desire to forge ahead into the future but our ideals are shaped by the nostalgic past. Maak Creativity translates this dichotomy into a modern cabinet called DUO. The juxtaposition is played out in a modernist piece harboring an old cabinet. It’s slightly jarring to look at, but like someone with split personalities, you can’t help but look.

American Classics Reimagined

American Classics Reimagined

In their vernacular forms the country cabin and beach house are most often envisioned as rough and woody as well as shingled and white-washed, respectively.  Finding inspiration in Woodstock, NY and Fire Island, NY, Italian architect Andrea Salvini’s conceptualizations of the classics have been updated aesthetically and to the era of eco-efficiency.

A Table of Religiosity and Geometry

A Table of Religiosity and Geometry

Check out this polarizing coffee table called Crucifixion. The inspiration came from religion, aesthetics and geometry – complimenting each other  to create this stainless steel and polycarbonate figure. It looks almost alien. Quite austere but in a way that makes you stare. The aerial shot is gorgeous. Great proportions.

The Deceptive Stool

The Deceptive Stool

The Harun is a stool that’s not meant for your butt! Meaning its an air purifier plus humidifier that camouflages itself like furniture. Its features include a 4-liter water tank, four humidifying filters, six-step filter process and the ability to filter out odor, fine dust, yellow dust, viruses, allergies, and VOCs. Essentially its one of those equipments meant for large rooms and you don’t want to spoil their looks with obvious looking purifiers. The neat, sophisticated option!

Marginal Notes Inspires Design

Marginal Notes Inspires Design

One morning, Note Design Studio scribbles in the margins of old sketches and notes. They were just random ideas, visual brainstorms in passing to help illustrate key ideas but never saw the light of day. They fell in love with these scribbles and embraced their odd proportions, diverse materials and lack of clever functions. Some were left for later but others were pushed further, into the physical world. In the end it became an exhibition called what else, MARGINAL NOTES.
