Tap Totally Locked!

Tap Totally Locked!

The Locko is an outdoor water tap meant for installation in gardens and public areas. The concept addresses the need for keeping these faucets secured and locked as unauthorized people may use them. The Locko uses a combination lock system to keep the tap locked and only those who know the combination will be able to use it. This will help prevent water theft (yes this happens!) and wastage.

The Anywhere Speakers

The Anywhere Speakers

Who can resist speakers that can be carried to all the places you fancy! Yes, the Moktak is not your typical pair of portable outdoor speakers. They are special and can be can be used anywhere; while cycling, hung from a tree…. anywhere! The speakers feature a flexible lead cable with a silicone cover and can bend into any shape. The cable stays in shape and surges power between the two audio outputs.

Jellyfish Ahoy!

Jellyfish Ahoy!

I remember gazing at the jellyfish with utter amazement in Hong Kong’s Ocean Park aquarium. Little did I know that their sting can be so painful and apparently some species’ sting can actually prove fatal for humans! I love the ocean and shudder to think how would it feel to get stung. The Ocean Guard is a series of buoys that use ultra-low frequency sound waves to prevent jellyfish from entering certain areas. It is a safer way to keep them at bay, without harming them. Peaceful co-existence I suppose.

Beautifying The Trash Can

Beautifying The Trash Can

I love the clever and simplistic way the Florus functions. It hides unsightly trashcans and at the same time provides a bed for pretty flowers to thrive and bloom. What is even cooler is the fact that it keeps the trash covered behind a metal door, thus flies and roaches can stay away. Crafted from stainless steel, powder coated and painted, you can keep the trash door locked too!

Flip-Floppin' Bench

Flip-Floppin’ Bench

Part functional public seating solution, part kinetic sculpture, the Bend Bench was designed around a unique frame that makes it possible to rotate both vertically and horizontally. It can spin like a merry-go-round to face any direction for different views. Once in position, one side can be flipped vertically to provide shade or cover from the rain over the other. Simply flip it back down to double the space for others to sit. One of the most versatile bench designs we’ve seen!

For The Love of Boarding

For The Love of Boarding

The MOXTER kitelandboard features latest technical developments of all board sports combined. The deck is crafted out of a cnc-milled ash-core coated with glass- and carbon fabric. Chis explains, ‘This build-up strategy reduces 20% of the weight while giving the potential to design a 3D shaped board that combines two technically disparate requirements of kitelandboarding: flex and stiffness.’ The hole in the middle of the board looks good but is there for a reason, it increases the flex of the board to absorb the energy after a big jump.

For The Seven Dwarfs

For The Seven Dwarfs

For some odd reason the seven dwarfs used to go mining at night and I reckon they could put this Light Shovel to good use! Jokes aside, I think it is a clever idea to integrate lighting into the shovel stick. It could come in handy in mines or when for you have to use it at night. Plus if we can get it to somehow trap kinetic energy and put it to some use, it would be great! For now the concept looks it can be tweaked and toyed upon.

Super Golf Trolley

Super Golf Trolley

I am not a golfer but been raised by golf enthusiasts who took me to the golf course at every given chance. So I understand the sacredness of a golf clubs, the caddy and even the golf bag! I’d like to dedicate this Tour Caddie – ProPod Golf Trolley to all the times I misunderstood ‘birdie’, ‘Calcutta’ and ‘eagle’. This unique monocoque motorized carry pod has been specifically designed for Mike Powell Design and features some great innovations.

Shade Under The Lampbrella

Shade Under The Lampbrella

The concept of the Lampbrella is as romantic as getting wet in the rains with your partner. The design incorporates a rain and motion sensor into the shaft of the streetlamp and opens up the umbrella canopy when it rains. It’s a clever integration of a street lamp and umbrella, but my only worry is that it may end up injuring someone while opening or closing. So till that open-close system is not refined, lets just call this a romantic solution!

The trashcan designed by Kőrös Benedek – Ben Koros has a fun and intriguing way of dumping the waste. Read on to know more.

Linear Street Lamp

Linear Street Lamp

Designed for Bep’s Car & Motorcycle Accessories, the B-Light is a modern twist on the street lamp that is instantly recognizable in “traffic red.” Formed from a single, laser-cut metal sheet, the design consists of a straight line that folds in on itself, like the sinuous lines of light obtained by photographing moving cars at night. With a bright LED light that’s parallel to the ground it also does its best to minimize light pollution.

Lighting Naturally

Lighting Naturally

When you live in the city, it’s easy to lose touch of some of mother nature’s simple offerings like a breeze or wild plant life. Keeping in mind how these things can inspire appreciation of nature, the designers at Pensa created this unique lighting solution that mimics the shape and sway of water reeds. Powered by the water’s current, the Light Reeds provide a subtle, romantic glow to public areas while offering a deeper connection to the waterfront.
