Spice It Up With Samba!

Spice It Up With Samba!

Spice up the art of cooking with these delightful salt ‘n peppers shakers called the Samba!  Akin to playing the maracas, these shakers bring back the fun-element in cooking. Handcrafted in fine bone china, they come in three versions and two finishes: salt and pepper, salt and chilli or sugar and cocoa; in red or black silicone rubber seals finishes. My pick is the sugar and cocoa in black!

Field Pen of Solidity

Field Pen of Solidity

Uh oh! Looks like designer Sylvain Gerber is at it again! This time with something completely different than a speaker flake: this one is branded with the high quality field pen brand Rotring and called “FLEX MECH.” It’s a flexible topped pen where the flexible rod is housed in a guide tube which pushes the ink down with a spring, then brought out the mine at the bottom. What a weird pen situation!

High Efficiency Energy Saving Audio

High Efficiency Energy Saving Audio

It’s sort of like when you “shop more, you save more,” but you know what I mean. It’s not as much energy as you’d be using with your everyday stereo system. This is “Presence,” a high efficiency, energy saving bit of equipment joined together “by a visual brand.” It consists of a pair of loudspeakers, CD player, pre-amp and amplifier, vibration damper, and a 50 inch plasma TV. I’ll take one, please! Read more below.

Back to the Typewriter

Back to the Typewriter

Now here is a media center project unlike any I’ve ever seen before. Inspired by the iconic typewriter he has at his desk, (a Lettera 22,) thinking about the futuristic world we live in and will live in in the future, this designer decided to combine the aesthetics of the typewriter with the guts of a modern day media center. A media center, for those of you who’ve get to get on board, is a computer specially equipped to act as your television hookup.

It’s that time again. Time to guess what this item is without us telling you what it might be.

Bike Folded Sharp as a Razor

Bike Folded Sharp as a Razor

There have been many folding bicycle concepts posts in the many years Yanko Design has been in business, and here’s another one. One bike might fold to a small size, one might fold in a way that allows you to wheel it around. This one folds down max, max, max. Take a look at all the previous posts with folding bike concepts in them and compare.

Multiple Indubitable Perceptions

Multiple Indubitable Perceptions

Here’s a clock to add to your collection of oddest clocks of all time. This is the Parallel of Time clock and it’s a concept reflecting off the idea that although the speed of time is indubitable (the designer used this word, and I love it, so I will keep using it forever,) the perception everyone has of it is different. Time is perceived. Here is a strange clock.

Iron None More Black

Iron None More Black

This is the most metal iron for clothing you will ever find in the world. You can use it for ironing, then, if there’s a zombie apocalypse, you can stab the heck out of some undead skulls with it just as easy. This is A Menës Iron by Nico Kläber. This project is made for men, men who are ashamed of using a regular white iron because they are afraid of being called a sissy. Truly they will be the most masculine of flat-clothing men now.

The New Logica Shift In Kitchen

The New Logica Shift In Kitchen

Everything on hand, everything tidy in an instant.

This is the mantra behind the newly developed Logica System Kitchen. The back of the layout contains and conceals all the kitchen equipments at whim. The scratch resistance worktop is treated with nanotechnology & the SMEG hob can be camouflaged by using the same glass employed for the worktop.

Porcelain Chances Are

Porcelain Chances Are

Designer Quentin de Coster hopes to ride the border between art and design with these container objects made of your very favorite material in the whole world! That’s right, they’re porcelain. Look like they’re made of something soft, yes? That’s because while they’re all made from the same mold, they’re allowed to deform on their own while unmoulding and cooking. Wild stuff!

8,820 Relaxing Sharp Points, Yantra Mat Review

8,820 Relaxing Sharp Points, Yantra Mat Review

When a colleague and a yogi friend of ours told us about an acupressure mat that could release physical tension and improve mental well being- we had to try it. The Yantra Mat has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Blunt nail beds were used to increase blood flow and purify the body of toxins. Fortunately the Yantra Mat is much less archaic and far more portable. Home acupressure, here we come. Hit the jump for our review.
