A Loom of Light

A Loom of Light

Loom is a collection of organic textile pendant lamps utilizing a new 3d woven polyester material designed by Benjamin Hubert for Swedish manufacturer Zero. Originally used as a source of comfort in the bedding industry the 3d textile has never before been used in the lighting industry. The textile can be stretched around complex forms and diffuses the light through its dense network of warp woven polyester fibers. The textile is offset and contrasted with a brightly lit polymer lens at the heart of each pendant.

Fussy Yet Minimalistic

Fussy Yet Minimalistic

It’s easy to dismiss a simple table when there’s a superfluous design element, but I like the architectural form of this Side Table. The randomly placed rails also constitute the legs. There’s a fluidity in the design, emphasized by the softly curved wood surfaces. What appears to by unnecessarily complex makes total sense.

Write on a Table

Write on a Table

The Writable is a fun and interactive look at how we can spark up the conversation around the coffee table. Three flip panels at the centre house chalkboards on the underside with a chalk discreetly held in place. I love the way it changes the outlook of a simple structure to something more eloquent. Definitely a conversation starter!

Smooth Operator

Smooth Operator

Slide ‘n’ Touch is a programmable multi-touch remote control that syncs with your TV. The smooth-as-silk touchpad is easy to use and the sleek body is crafted from stainless steel and aluminum. Besides its user-friendly size, I totally dig the slim, chic minimal design. I’d pick the gold bezel one for me, what about you?

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!

Gorgeous Privacy Screen

Gorgeous Privacy Screen

Unveiled at Politecnico di Milano, Albero di feltro is a privacy screen made of a stainless steel frame and synthetic felt body designed for portability and easy installation. It’s ideal to isolate a portion of room either in office, lounge or even in student lodging. The design evokes the organic shape of a leaf leaving you the option to stay minimal or surround yourself in a forest sort to speak. Go small or go all out. Which would you do?

Look Carefully; It’s a Transparent TV!

Look Carefully; It’s a Transparent TV!

Ask yourself, “what’s the next step in television innovation?” The answer is transparency – an invisible flatscreen that blends into the home environment when not in use, much like the Loewe Invisio. This magnificent TV is not a big black blot in standby mode, like how all television sets are. It’s a clear, frameless glass surface that keeps the room in its “visually unaltered” state.

Not Just Shells

Not Just Shells

The project you’re about to lay eyes on is not a nut. It’s not a shell either. Nor is it even organic. Nay! It is a nut cracker, and it has a name: Handy Nut. This lovely and elegant piece of industrial design sculpture is made our of a full porcelain cast, made to be conveniently ergonomic and smooth and gentle to the touch. Have you ever in your whole live seen such a classy cracker of nuts?

Pen in Crack

Pen in Crack

Can you guess where the pen goes? That’s right! Right in the middle there, right in the crack. This project is known simply as “Notebook with Pen Holder,” and is designed by Teo Song Wei, a designer who, on the whole, enjoys automobile design the best. How does this lend to the design of a notebook? Simplicity above all else, then style, then aerodynamics. Not that this book is going to be racing a 500 anytime soon.

Poppin' Bottles

Poppin’ Bottles

Küb is a bottle opener. Küb loves to entertain guests, but it also hates the mess they leave behind. It has an interior compartment with a slide-out lid that lets you store bottle caps until they can be discarded properly. Küb also has a deep-seeded need to fit in, which is why it is made of high-quality hardwoods and stainless steel so you can leave it out in your kitchen as an attractive accessory. By far the sexiest bottle opener.

Earphones Strapped

Earphones Strapped

The Headbanger’s unique headband and over-ear headphone combination is the perfect design for any athlete. The design holds the headphones firmly onto the users head and gives them unparalleled performance when it comes to any kind of sport. Extreme sports will benefit the most from this technology because they often put the athletes in situations that would easily cause traditional headphones to break or fly .
