Iron Doggy

Iron Doggy

The I-dog is a part of a limited edition sculpture series created by Elda Bellone designed to explore how sculptures cross into function. Made of white iron, it’s strong and gentle at the same time. Awww! Use it as an umbrella stand or anything else you can fit inside its structure. It’s adorable!

Phallic Much?

Phallic Much?

Rise and Shine is a tribute to the Edison lightbulb which helped accelerate us into industrial era but after 130 years, it seems the light is finally dimming. The lightbulb will soon be banned from the EU and similar measures are taking place all over the world. In honor, this cheeky presentation shows the powerful rise of the lightbulb in a symbolic way – the brevity of existence.

Home and Personal Radiator

Home and Personal Radiator

I would appreciate this more if I lived in a colder climate but I still want it!. The Akopo is a new kind of radiator system made from PVC, refractory stone and ceramic. I say “new kind” because the main body not only radiates heat like a traditional unit, but also warms up detachable modules made of PVC elastomer and ceramic. They’re safe to use and incredibly flexible. Sometimes you don’t need to heat up the whole house. You just want to warm yourself up.

Panning The Bin

Panning The Bin

There is one job that I don’t really have to do: sweeping. Why? Because I’m blessed with maid-service and my house-help really does a darn good job of it. So when I showed my help this Bin Pan, she was eager with excitement, pestering me to bring in one for the home. It is a clever design, to integrate the pan with the dustbin. It looks nice and works well, both at home and at office! Guess I owe her this one! One Bin Pan coming up!

The Democratic Couch

The Democratic Couch

Fossa is a sofa, lounger, and corner sectional. It’s whatever you want it to be because almost all of the cushions can be rearranged, inserted, or removed. Freely create new forms for relaxing, reading, napping, or other nefarious activities. Are we now democratizing furniture?

Ultra Sonic Wine

Ultra Sonic Wine

No point in consuming wine that hasn’t aged sufficiently or buying plenty if you don’t have proper cellars to store them. A mid-way option is the WAVE Ultra Sonic Wine Ager And Refrigerator concept. An appliance that features two-layered shelves with the inner walls emitting ultrasonic waves, to act on the molecules of the wine, to age them! A custom touchscreen helps you navigate through the settings, helping you determine the speed of aging at the touch of a button. Definite a prized gift for the connoisseur who has serious space issues at home!

Sync Into Your Seat

Sync Into Your Seat

The Sync is a seating system consisting of a number of cubes that move up and down with a persons body weight by the aid of gas springs, to create arm rests and a back rest from the surrounding cubes. Brills! Of course that means anyone attempting to sit next to me will get my pissy face because they’re essentially sitting on my armrests. I like the idea, hate the covers. Fortunately there are other upholstery options.

Heat Me

Heat Me

The ORA is an interesting radiator heat concept meant to be portable enough to move around, but for the ultimate in portability, a removable sleeve can provide ample heat around your neck when needed. The radiator itself has a simple clock-timer feature and the whole package looks quite fetching no?

Simple Smile Can Set Things Right

Simple Smile Can Set Things Right

“Simply use the emotional expression to remind and educate users to turn off the light.”

This one line says it all….moreover the cute switches create the desired impact of reminding us to conserve. I guess this is another angle to Product Design: to be instinctive without being preachy!

Ashes To Ashes; Odor To Perfume

Ashes To Ashes; Odor To Perfume

Light one and it can be the cause of your death, and I’ll light the other in your memory. Confused? Don’t be. What we have here is the Ashtray Incense Burner, a ceramic bowl that is an ashtray on the right-side, flip it and it becomes an incense stick holder. One spreads odor, the other fragrance. One is the smell of death, the other of life! Can’t do more poetic justice than this, dedicated to the smoker!
