These glasses have the flute and stem but are missing the stand. That’s because you’re supposed to stick them in the stand when not in use. The sand you ask? Yes, they were designed for hot Swedish summers at the beach.

A New To-Do, Beach Golf

A New To-Do, Beach Golf

I’m sure golf is a great game and all but it’s not for everyone. Some people prefer to stick to the sand and surf instead of the sun and green so why not bring the best of both worlds together? Why can’t we play golf at the beach?

Ondine Bench, A Flowy One

Ondine Bench, A Flowy One

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.

Now if you had the picnic-for-one, you could bring a whole meal as a little snack or reward to enjoy the view atop the summit.

Lawn Fun From 3-In-One

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.

The concept is perfect for first time home owners and for people short on storage space.
