Minimalist Minute-Counters

Minimalist Minute-Counters

Julien Guenning’s GREYHOURS watch duo is a statement of minimalism and modern style. Both the black/blue and white/red versions have a soft aesthetic but a combination of super-strong sapphire glass and Italian leather make them highly durable. Simplistic yet elegant, it’s a perfect timepiece for casual daily wear. Check out the lifestyle vid after the jump —>

Tram-tastic Transportation!

Tram-tastic Transportation!

If you’ve ever been on a tram tour then you know that it’s all about getting the right seat… and ending up with a sorry seat can make a slow ride even longer! With the AIR-LEBEN tram, however, there’s not a bad seat in the house! This suspended sky lounge rotates 360 degrees so every passenger gets the same breathtaking view. For added thrill, panoramic windows put riders in the center of the scenery, all from the comfort of a climate controlled cabin.

Chic Cycling Shoe

Chic Cycling Shoe

The Urbanized Cycling Shoe was designed with two goals in mind: keep riders dry and look good while doing it. With standard cleats riders must carry a second pair of shoes to change in to after riding, but this concept is less rigid while being more waterproof, making them comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Built in LED lights at the heels also provide a layer of safety not offered by current cleats. Minimal, sleek and stylish, you might find yourself wearing them even when you’re not cycling!

Funky Outdoor Fireplace

Funky Outdoor Fireplace

This wild looking concept is at once a sculptural centerpiece and functional fireplace for your outdoor area. The modern wood-burning design differs from other fire pits in that it encourages people to lean on and touch its surfaces to warm their body while observing its internal spiral flame created by an air flow rotation system. The copper strips that fan outward are also warmed to provide heat to the user’s feet.

Flood Fighter

Flood Fighter

As the risk of flooding increases with environmental change, so does the potential for human disaster. Unfortunately, those currently at risk must rely on predicted data rather than real-time information. The Flood Beacon aims to address this issue by detecting water surges and issuing widespread alerts to not only the appropriate rescue teams but the general public via mobile phone notifications. Genius! More in the vid after the jump —>

I've never wanted to sit in a chair so badly...

I’ve never wanted to sit in a chair so badly…

Take a little bit of Eames and mix it with a handful of harlequin and you’ve got yourself a “Tiles” chair! This innovative design is the fruit of rethinking fabric furniture. Each section is hinged together by a strong fabric as part of its construction. The unique structure gives the chair slight flexibility, allowing it to form gently to the user’s back. Functional and beautiful! Look closer to see if you can spy a hidden Escher-style illusion —>

Like Fighting Fire with Fire!

Like Fighting Fire with Fire!

We’re constantly cladding our precious iPhones in plastic and rubber for protection, ultimately changing one of the important aspects of their beautiful design that draws us in to begin with. So why not put that fancy anodized aluminum in… well… anodized aluminum?! That’s the idea behind coverPRO. It’s a case cast in colorful anodized aluminum measuring in at just .5mm thick. Super thin so it doesn’t compromise your phone’s character, but strong and rigid enough to keep it safe from falls and scratches. Get it here!

Interactive Lightforms

Interactive Lightforms

“ledwork” is a series of highly tangible, autonomous lights that respond to touch and movement. Connected together with magnets, they form a swarm of light in which new patterns emerge as the lights talk to each other and work in an ever-changing colorful harmony. This invites the user to observe, explore and construct new physical configurations while deepening the connection between object and user.
