For lumberjacks who want to keep their limbs…

Accidents while sawing are generally the result of the user turning their body to achieve a certain angle while cutting trees horizontally. In this awkward position, the saw often slips from the user’s grasp, spinning from the torque before coming into contact with a leg or other extremity. To solve this problem, the Rotation Saw is fitted with a revolving handle so the user can adjust the angle at which they’re cutting without moving from the proper body position. Hit the vid to see it in action!

The Phone, Simplified

The Phone, Simplified

Gotta love the simplicity of this minimal desktop phone by Younghwan Kim! Designed for the OCD professional with a perfectly organized desk, the phone at first appears to be a black, glossy block accent. Un-nest it from the base, however, and it will reveal a minimal interface with basic number keys and an simple LED screen. Its functionality is as minimal as the stark aesthetic, and that’s its charm!

Living Light Bulbs

Living Light Bulbs

Already being used as a large-scale power source for housing heating/cooling & biodiesel creation, algae as a natural energy source is one of the more exciting alternatives of the near future. The AlgaeBulb is an exploration into the use of the organisms on a micro-scale in single LED lightbulb that harnesses the green-power of algae. Using a small air pump compressor, tank, and hydrophobic material, it creates just enough electricity to power the LED for limited durations. Hit the jump to see how it works!

Smart Stretcher

Smart Stretcher

Lenify is a collapsible emergency stretcher that all but eliminates the chances of secondary injuries caused by lifting patients onto the stretcher. The solution: divide the stretcher into three parts to stabilize the upper body, arms/midsection, and lower body. This unique construction makes it possible to “scoop” the individual into the stretcher rather than the traditional “lift and drop” method.

The Ziggle Grill

The Ziggle Grill

Love the Ziggle for being this compact portable grill that looks neat and is functional. Typically grills are cumbersome and inconvenient, especially when you are out camping. The small size and compact demeanor make this zig a must-have on your camping gear list. Too bad it’s still a concept!

The Dry Hand’s Faucet incorporates the hand dryer within the faucet system. Basically after washing your hands you simply need to swivel the faucet head to activate the hand dryer. Looks to be a good solution for those who prefer the hot air dryer to the paper towel!

Seedlings of Light

Seedlings of Light

This elegant pendant lamp takes it namesake and organic shape from one of mother nature’s own: the seed! The Seed lamp creates an ambient, diffused glow to achieve the ideal mood anywhere from the dining table to the lounge. As it appears to drip from the ceiling, the pendant has a somewhat-alien aesthetic brought back to earth by it’s natural curves- a perfect contrast for modern spaces.

Bendy and Beautiful

Bendy and Beautiful

Composed of individual strips of bent eucalyptus wood laminate, the Eira chair’s unique form and material flexibility make it one of the the most comfortable rigid chairs out there. Surprisingly “soft,” the user will feel the wood flex to the curves of the body with each change in position. While somewhat large in size, the chair is distributed unassembled in a compact box where each component fits snugly for easy shipping and construction.

Painless Vaccinations

Painless Vaccinations

I would do anything to not make my baby go through painful vaccinations, but the hard truth is that they simply must. Keeping this in mind we have the VACC-STAMP, which offers a safe and painless way to give vaccine shots. It leaves them with a heart-shaped stamp on their skin rather than a face full of tears!

Light Bulbs Exposed

Light Bulbs Exposed

The inspiration behind the FRAMED collection was to highlight the beauty of designer LED bulb within each pendant. As the name suggests, each sculptural pendant frames the light bulb itself as the focal point of the design with blades composed of the highest grade aircraft aluminum anodized in black. Flat-pack ready and easy to assemble without any tools, they’re a quick solution for a striking aesthetic.
