The Mathematics in Polyhedrons and Pots

The Mathematics in Polyhedrons and Pots

It sounds a bit complicated, but the explanation is worth the effort – apparently there are only five regular polyhedrons in the world, and the dodecahedron is the most stable shape of them. Using this shape in an innovative form, we have the 12 Faces of Structure – Potholder; an interesting take on geometry.

Tea-Bag Life Saver

Tea-Bag Life Saver

Designed for tea-enthusiasts by tea-enthusiasts, the Tea-Bag Mug was designed to let users savor every last drop. Because many bags still have life after a single brewing, the design’s built-in infuser makes it easy to remove and reuse the bag for additional cups in a sanitary, hands-free way. Simply drop in a bag, brew and re-brew if you’re thirsty for more!

Concealed and Convenient

Concealed and Convenient

Switchblades are for gangsters. Army Knives are for, well, army people (duh). What about the general populace? People who randomly need a knife to cut something open, or cut something loose? You can’t keep a full fledged knife on your body at all times. That’s the first sign that you may need therapy. The Screwpop is a tiny little knife to get the job done. It has its own stainless steel protective cover (that also opens bottles…whut whut!), and a brass eye that allows the knife to be secured to your keychain or carabiner clip.

Ice Ice Baby

Ice Ice Baby

Making ice cubes is a childish yet fun chore. The chore is the part where you fill up the ice tray. You always have to wipe up afterwards. Not only do you end up spilling water all over the kitchen counter, you end up leaving some of the cubes in the tray empty (that’s quite a bummer, mind you). I don’t even want to talk about removing the ice cubes from the tray. I’ve actually shattered trays in the past trying to get the ice out.

Clasp and Cook

In light of everything being portable, it’s only fair that cooking stoves go that way too. The Clasp Range is a portable stove that is lightweight, easy to charge and totally ready for the go. Think camping, picnics and BBQ Parties and more, designed to fit both indoors and outdoors, I love the handgrip and collapsible elements to the design.

The Less is More Toaster

The Less is More Toaster

You wouldn’t throw out a phone if the screen broke, or a bike if the brake pads wore out… so why trash a toaster when something goes awry?! That’s the idea behind Core. To help eliminate waste and increase longevity of use, this innovative appliance channels Dieter Rams’ “less design, but better” ethos, utilizing a screw-less, glue-less design that allows users to better maintain and repair their toaster. Easy access to the crumb tray and internal components (with no permanent fixtures) makes it a cinch to replace parts and clean as needed. Jump to the vid!

A Hitchhiker's Guide to Cutlery

A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Cutlery

Back in 2000, when the mobile phone got married to the digital camera, us selfie-obsessed folk were skeptical. Who knew that a decade later the camera would be the most important part of the phone? Designer Ian Yen of Design YXR thought it was time for history to repeat itself. The resulting product is the Pin Tableware. Part cutlery(spoon/knife/fork), part stationery (safety pin), this refreshing design brings a kitschy element into the way we perceive and store our cutlery. Let’s hope to see a frisbee/dining plate hybrid soon!

Scientific Bean Grinding

Scientific Bean Grinding

Coffee-geeks will love Pisona as it merges the versatility of a burr grinder with the compactness of a blade grinder, creating a revolutionary two-phase grinding process that enhances the aroma and flavor of the grounds. Rather than “shave” off parts of whole beans directly, the new auger system and innovative internal configuration first crack beans to 3mm and then transfer it to be ground to the user’s desired fineness. The closest thing to the preferred hand-grinding method, its slower automated process ensures beans aren’t heated in the grinding process.

The Toaster Just Got Smarter

The Toaster Just Got Smarter

This functional twist on the toaster maintains the same minimalism as the classic upright toaster, but has some new and improved features! The first is a digital timer screen so you can gauge exactly how long your toast has left. This also means you’ll know exactly the right time and heat seating so you get it right each time. The second is a nesting tong built in to the side. It saves fingers from burning and when it’s removed it triggers the device to turn off so you never have to worry about accidentally leaving it on!
