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.

Colorful Beginning to 2011

Colorful Beginning to 2011

All those who expected 2011 to be a dull year, you’re in for a rude shock. Everyday from Jan to December is as colorful as the rainbow! Rather set in a pattern of CMYK color fade called Chromo – a delightful Protein CMYK Color Fade 2011 Calendar that cleverly maps the 29.5-day lunar month. Available in portrait and landscape, this plastic coated ready-memo measures 120cm x 42cm. It comes bundled with a non-permanent marker, which I think is quite thoughtful! Happy Colorful February everyone for just £15!

Smitten by the Lobot

Smitten by the Lobot

With its charismatic Wall-E eyes for lights, the Lobot is the cutest robotic lamp I’ve have seen. A body constructed out of anodized aluminum and “robust and well engineered hinge system”, this lamp can be maneuvered into different positions with gliding ease. I simply love its minimal design and its no-fuss attitude, looks as if it were made to banish all darkness surrounding your desk! I need to get this one.

One Liter Limited

One Liter Limited

1ℓimit faucet looks more like an elegant test tube inverted on top of a tap. The glass tube holds exactly one liter of water, sufficient for a quick handwash. The theory being that we waste almost six liters of water and use only one, while washing hands. Once the stored one-liter is used up, you have to turn-off the tap till the next one liter fills up the tube. A cumbersome rationing process that will hopefully drive home the point of conservation!

Democratize Coasters

Democratize Coasters

The proverbial coaster hasn’t changed much aside from constantly shifting between geometric shapes and designs. It’s main function has and will always be to protect surfaces from moisture and heat but the emboGarden goes a step further to accommodate anything larger than a mug. A group of mugs, coffee pots, tea pots, even cookware. Communal and democratized coasters yes?

Not Just for Hanging Coats

Not Just for Hanging Coats

A single sheet of metal bent, folded and fashioned into a majestic coat hanger; very approriate for the hallway or foyer. This uber chic Coat Hanger goes by the name of Pluche. What makes it a thoughtful design is the flat tray for keys and a loop for hanging stuff like umbrellas etc. Very well done indeed!

Icy Lotus

Icy Lotus

Love me a fun ice cube y’all and the Ice Lotus ice cube tray is the sleekest looking of them all. Made of black rubber and stainless steel, it looks like a lotus pod. Smash the rubbery part with your hand and the “ice seeds” eject into the steel bottom.

Classified Trash

Classified Trash

Separating rubbish is time consuming and nobody likes to do it. A micro-level system to make the job easy is the Trash Classification Bin. The bin-in-bin is used to put in all your organic waste  while the bigger bin holds inorganic stuff. A very non-messy and quick way to do your bit. I’ll take one for my office, please.

Mopping with Spiritual Light

Mopping with Spiritual Light

No I’m for real, “External Light” is a concept floor lamp that relies on you to mop your floors regularly to store kinetic energy to power the lamp integrated into the entire length of the stick. Novel idea but there’s a deeper meaning. Designer Arthur Xin is one designer on spiritual journey and his work represents a symbolic way of mopping up the bad to create positive energy.
