Equating A Cleanup

Equating A Cleanup

The Equate is a vacuum cleaner for table crumbs and has been designed with the purpose of celebrating its form rather than hiding it. Most often we tend to find a cozy nook for such appliances, but designer Rich Park feels that we need to set this artistic work on a proud pedestal. It’s one of the rare examples where form, function and art are fine-tuned. Essentially, a very conceptual aerodynamic vacuum sits on a chrome cone-shaped charger.

Stories Made of Glass

Stories Made of Glass

Italian glassware studio Memento blurs the boundaries between handcrafted-workmanship and large scale production with their latest project called “ME IN A GLASS.” By manipulating colored vitreous paste, experienced craftsmen master each phase of the complex glass-making process, playing with colors and bringing about an extremely personal palette of 25 matchless glass sets with inspiration from sushi to dubstep.

Solid Craftsmanship

Solid Craftsmanship

Thomas Feichnter’s design strategy for the Fino collection was to eliminate the heavy and massive quality typical of solid wood furniture while retaining its constructive materiality. Each piece is characterized by an overall quality of lightness achieved by straight elements and joints as well as conically shaped table edges and legs that are tapered toward the floor. When combined they create cohesive solutions but individual items also make a great compliment to existing furniture.

Because We Need To Measure

Because We Need To Measure

I have seen some really crazy and snappy iPhone covers in my time, so this DeWalt iPhone 5 Case With Tape Measure Concept, caught me by surprise. The logical explanation is that if you work with tools, you will always need a tape measure, so why not have it with your iPhone Case! Oh well, I always keep one handy to measure my waistline; maybe I should have one of this!

Tea, Coffee And More - CUPPOW On The Go

Tea, Coffee And More – CUPPOW On The Go

Sometimes good design is all about striking the right balance when converting an idea into something substantial. Who would have thought that a nudge by your (not-so-nagging) wife would lead to the biggest creative genius in recent times! I’m talking about the story behind CUPPOW and the thought behind turning the everyday canning jar into a travel mug.

Bathroom Water Sculptures

Bathroom Water Sculptures

The Palomba Collection is a synthesis of organic and natural forms inspired by coastal inlets and cliffs where one can observe the waters effect on the rock formations. The collection translates this into a bathtub, 8 available washbasins, and other accessories that all appear perfectly sculpted and polished by water. In pure, bright white, fine fire-clay, the series (together or separate) is sure to be enduring.

Future Glowing Sinks

Designer Masahiro Minami’s “Renca” and “Suirin” washbowls for the SOUHOUGAMA line are the first of their kind, composed of translucent ceramic made from special Japanese clay.

Boskke Sky Planters Now in Clear

Boskke Sky Planters Now in Clear

If you haven’t yet been turned on to the Boskke Sky Planters, let me shed some light. See what I did there? Shed some light? Plants? Photosynthesis? Anywho – the original Sky Planters allowed any keen gardener short on space to literally hang all their plants. Now it’s available in clear; perfectly suited for plants with roots designed for sun exposure like orchids. It’s also interesting because you can kind of see how it all works. So deceptively simple and beautiful. Currently available in small and medium sizes. Gots to get me some.

A Hook With A Handy Peg

A Hook With A Handy Peg

They’re called Jpegs. No, not the image compression format. It’s a new product from Thabto designed by Jason Caswell. True to form, Jason designs yet another product that’s utterly useful with a sense of humor. The wood coat hooks have handy pegs you can clip mail, photos, and notes too. Each hook has super strong magnets if you prefer to use them on a fridge instead of wall. Get a set of 3 for £12. Love it!

Carbon Fiber Stone

Carbon Fiber Stone

Applied perfectly to this ultra-contemporary garden setting, Peter Donders’ creative seating designs, the C Bench and Stone, instantly command a strong visual attraction. Each uses a single strand of carbon fiber twisted around a mold. When the mold is removed the resulting structure is organic and airy in aesthetic yet incredibly strong. They’re a surprising solution for both indoor/outdoor seating and exceptional for defining a variety of modern spaces.
