A Board With 2 Personalities

A Board With 2 Personalities

The Axess is one board with a split personality. It can transform into a snowboard or moutainboard which is sorta like a skateboard on steroids. Of course switching from one to the other requires some fiddling around with screws and such. Too bad there isn’t a button I can press to make it transform. Yea I know, too many episodes of Inspector Gadget.

Apparently The 5th Element Is Glass

Apparently The 5th Element Is Glass

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.

It’s Just A Picnic For One

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.
