Garcon, one Cup of Light please

Garcon, one Cup of Light please

There’s a little light in every wonderful project, and here on Yanko Design we’ve got to appreciate the tools just as much as the ideas we produce – for example here a tiny light producer called “T Light”. What this little lamp is essentially a lightbulb in a coffee cup covered by a bit of cloth which enhances the overall quality of your experience. Look like your cuteness to go?

Cool Air and More

Cool Air and More

Although we are heading towards winter, let’s not forget the folks from Down Under who are gearing up for their summers. I think escape from heat and reality should be more than just Kool Aid and popsicles; it should be funky like the Water Wave Air Conditioner. It features ambient lighting with moods like stars and water, matching sound effects and cool breezy air to lower your temperature. Now that’s what soothing summers should be like!

Mo'bility is Mo'betta

Mo’bility is Mo’betta

MO is a flexible, affordable and sustainable combination of bike rental systems, local public transportation, and car sharing that aims to ease the tension of getting around in the city. Using a human-centered design approach, Mo would also mean less cars on the street, a quieter environment, less oversize roadways and more room for walking paths, improving the overall quality of life for everyone.

The Lunar Influence on Time

The Lunar Influence on Time

The Moonshine is inspired by the phases of the moon and can depict the entire lunar process of new moon to the eclipse, in one go. On the face of it is the clock and behind it is a timed lamp that mimics the moonlight from moonrise to moonset. For the star signs influenced by the moon, this looks to be quite a soothing lamp/clock combo to have around. I totally want one!

Porsche Baby!!

Porsche Baby!!

It’s about time there is a little equality in the baby stroller market! The Porsche Design P’4911 blends a unique mix of materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, leather, ball-bearing wheels,  into this tough looking design that is, to say the least, quite masculine (man growl). The minimal design folds compact enough to fit into the trunk of any Porsche.

A Little Improvement Goes a Long Way

A Little Improvement Goes a Long Way

Vapen is a simple, yet ingenious improvement on the guide dog harness that incorporates a ball joint socket into the handle of the harness, providing people with visual impairments strengthened communication with their animal and improving ergonomics for their hand. The ball joint socket also allows the  harness to be reassembled into a walking cane, reducing the number of items the user must carry. For further customization the handle and cane are adjustable in length to fit various users and dogs.

The Vein of Life

The Vein of Life

Check out this untitled concept by Kim Joonmin. It’s a vase with a built-in vein that reacts to a living plant by turning red. Not much else to say but it’s gorgeous in simplicity. I totally want one. A very animalistic flower pot if you will.

Light and Shadow, Minimalist Clock

Light and Shadow, Minimalist Clock

The Pure+Clock by Darren Lin for a.cerco is a beautiful example of raw functionality extrapolated into a visually engaging design. The clean, monochromatic appearance is meant to soothe and go easy on the eyes. The arms cast a shadow on the clock face complimenting the ambient light around the rim. A wonderfully softening effect.

Handrails That Speak

Handrails That Speak

With their guide stick in one hand and a firm grip on the handrail, the visually challenged rely on instincts while negotiating a flight of stairs. The Safety Dot is a set of braille indents on a handrail, which makes using the stairs an easier task. I love the thoughtful intent and the simple way it can be integrated.
