When we think of urban spaces, it’s often about efficiency. Beauty usually plays no role in the design so the Ondine Bench is a perculiar concept. The smooth organic shape can be created by combining identical modules and arranging them into a circle. They provide a fun way for people to sit – some higher, some lower.

Nowadays if you have a house, it’s reasonable to assume you have a lawn, and that means you need equipment to keep it manicured. Unfortunately that can be costly so Gustav Landberg designed one machine that does the job of 3; a mower, leaf collector, and snow blower. The concept is perfect for first time home owners and for people short on storage space.

Somewhere in the early 80′s, the ghetto blaster came up as a part of street culture, today it’s gone and people settle for cell phones, iPods and their miniature earplugs.
