Half The Workout

Half The Workout

Taking its redesign a step further, we have here the Dumbbell 1/2 – a pair of multi-functional dumbbell for home exercise. Thanks to the new shape you can use them as single dumbbell, double dumbbell, and push-up bars. Slide them under your bed when not in use or carry them in your gym bag for an outdoor stint. Super easy and super cool!

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.

Ergonomic Bumrest!

Ergonomic Bumrest!

I’m convinced that beanbags are secretly really hungry monsters. I sit on them and within ten minutes, I’ve sunken in as if it were trying to swallow me. Now while that can get annoying, the actual problem I face is a backache because of the bad posture I end up in. The PUFFi is a delightful little beanbag with an extra layer of padding that not only gives the bag much more character, but makes for better sitting. The layer of padding is removable, for the people who want to be swallowed whole by their furniture. The choice is yours!

Crystal Math

Crystal Math

No. That isn’t a Pokémon. It’s a chair; and a pretty fine one, that too. Inspired by quartz, and built using an intricate mathematical algorithm derived from the mineral’s complex crystalline structure, the armchair comprises of a wooden frame and geometric cushions that you can arrange to make sure the chair feels comfortable. Each geometric cushion is unique and inimitable, making every single Quartz chair one-of-a-kind, much like its mineral counterpart!

Created in solid birch with eye-catching patterned lids, these stackable beauties are designed to fit comfortably into one another, like an elegant vertical jigsaw puzzle!

Table That Is A PC

Table That Is A PC

The C-Walker is a radical PC + Table concept whose idea germinates from the fact that workstations with CPU, wires, screen and keyboard look cluttered and distracting. One of the ways to streamline the desk is to integrate the PC into the table itself. What we have now is a desk with wires that are internally set, a virtual keyboard and a projected screen. USB slots and CD ROM slots are flushed to the side of tabletop, along with the power button. Essentially we have a hybrid desk that part PC and part table. Yes, the functional future has arrived!

Modular Cooktop

Modular Cooktop

CookPlat is conceived as a portable Pyrex vitroceramic cooker that uses magnetic induction technology. Designed to be modular, this cooker can be transported and used in just about any environment. Since it is a vitroceramic hob, the cooker directly heats up the utensil via a magnetic field and doesn’t use heating resistors (radiant heat).

Guessing Game #18

Guessing Game #18

Probably the last Guessing Game for this year, so get cracking at it! What is this design? A hairband…or….

Today’s hint: The most important value in the number system is what we call it. However the absence of the obvious makes it possible for us to pose like The Thinker.

Wow I am good at riddles!

When something smells funny...

When something smells funny…

One way we naturally determine the quality of our food is to give it a quick smell. But even our noses get it wrong sometimes! The Smeller works much in the same way, but with enhanced sensitivity. It picks up on the most minute of scents and compares them to a vast library to let the user know the exact condition of produce, meat and other foods. You can even share your smells on social media with just a click of a button!

Crutch as a lamp held aloft

Crutch as a lamp held aloft

It would appear that the way to lead with light might soon be by way of crutch – at least that’s how the designers behind the Leader would have it. The full name of these devices is “Leader Outdoor Crutches” and their designers, Cathy Wen and Linxi Lee, have made it clear that there will be no more darkness on the trail as long as they’re at the head of the pack.

Repurposed Cardboard in Posh Chair Shapes

Repurposed Cardboard in Posh Chair Shapes

It’s time for some awesome application of repurposed cardboard, folks, here in a set of furniture by the name of Re-Ply. This project works with what designer Dan Goldstein assures is rather unique in both form and method, using broken-down boxes that would otherwise be tossed in a garbage heap, here using them for undeniably strong – and trendy, too.
