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.

All The World's On Time

All The World’s On Time

Finally there is an elegant clock that tells time around the entire world at once. Finally I can look and say – oh, I know what time it is for Takashi, oh, I know that Radhika is probably eating pizza right now, oh, my other co-workers are more than likely on their way to the movies. Oh, this amazing clock tells me everything around the world. This is the “Bend Hand,” designed by Giha Woo, intended to tell the time around the world with a simple analog clock arm – one that’s bent. Look at the simplicity and marvel over the excellence and nice blue color.

A Desk of Transformers

A Desk of Transformers

Behold the transformable desk for creative persons, Kkanapètko. In the description we received from the designer, Krassi Dimitrov, I thought I read “crazy persons” and immediately got excited. Turns out it really is “creative persons,” but when it comes down to it, I know because I am one, creative persons and crazy persons are often one in the same. And speaking as a crazy creative, I say right now, this is a wonderful desk. Tiny when closed, one or two comfortable modes when in action, Kkanapètko go!

Spontaneous Mediterranean Pots

Spontaneous Mediterranean Pots

This project goes by the name “Atesta” and it’s going to make your plants look so amazing you aren’t going to know what to do with yourself. You’ll wish there was such a thing as a human planter, these plant pots look so nice. Designers at Series D have reinvented the plant pot in a way that makes them modular. These pots stand up tall and can be grouped to act as more of a space divider than a plant holder. More than ever before the pot becomes part of the ephemeral space of your yard, deck, lobby, or any other place you might plant a lovely plant.

iPad Wood

iPad Wood

Oh, to be held by a block of wood. The warm embrace of Mother Nature herself, all chopped down to a convenient size for us humanoids. Or in this case, us pieces of technological wonder. This is a stand for the iPad, the “Block22″ to be exact, and it’s mainly made of wood. Designers at Sherwood+Meister have created a masterpiece in simplicity and craftsmanship. Each piece is carved from a solid block of FSC-certified kiln-dried Ipe wood – a South American hardwood “prized for its enduring strength and density.” Ohh! Super fancy.

It’s super fabulous because not only does it hold your pans, it comes in several super nice looking colors. And not only that! It’s also easy to instal. Totally easy to instal. Why, you might ask? Because like all good things that’ve got to be level should, this project comes standard with a bubble level.

Check Yourself

Check Yourself

A reaction to a reaction, that’s what this is. I’d even go so far as to say this is a reaction to a reaction to a reaction. That’s where it gets really good in art, especially good in design. This project goes by the name “Reputation Check” and it comes in two parts: Acoustic and Graphic. Both are inspired by what designer Hayeon Yoo calls the side-effects of internet communication: anonymous, malicious comments tied with people’s obsession with checking their online reputation.
