Modern Space Helmet

Modern Space Helmet

Focusing on the importance of ergonomics and overall comfort needed by astronauts, Designer Herald J. Ureña’s goal in designing this space-helmet was to humanize the head-gear and make it an extension of the wearer rather than a restrictive encapsulation.

Sponge

Sponge

It may not be flashy, shiny, dazzling, or obvious, but that’s exactly what’s so great about the Sponge lamp. Inspired by the sea sponge, these hand made clay pottery pieces provide a warm and inviting glow through a porous surface. Perfect for the beach home as a subtle maritime accent or any natural setting as a uniquely textured lighting element.

Lighting Made Simple

Lighting Made Simple

Gotta love these minimal LED desk lamps by Duck Image. The Bamboo Lamp combines natural wood and aluminum into one angular, cohesive unit while the Swan Lamp boasts an elegant curved, aluminum arm. With intuitive touch-sensors, both are as simple as they are easy to use. The housing of the lamps is designed to hide components like screws and wiring for a clean, seamless finish.

Irrigator for the Home Gardener

Irrigator for the Home Gardener

The Rugiada waterer is an all-in-one irrigation solution that lets the common user garden like the pros. After inserting into the ground, the user selects the vegetable’s typology and the garden’s dimensions. Internal components including a humidity sensor and photocell for radiation detection automatically regulate the time and kind of irrigation (atomization, sprinkle, or droplets).

Two Finger Camera!

Two Finger Camera!

Doing it the Apple way, Air Camera strips away all the unnecessary aspects to a digital camera design. It leaves us with a Bluetooth enabled camera lens and a motion-sensor shutter button mounted on two rubber bands. Precious moments are captured with a simple click gesture and the images get transferred to your synced smartphone immediately.

Brick Lego Homes!

Brick Lego Homes!

I love this concept of turning food relief packets to something useful, especially if used in disaster struck areas. The idea is to bundle food (rice) and water into this brick-like module, which can later be used to build temporary shelters. Thanks to their Lego inspired shape, the UNICEF Brick structures promise to be sturdy as temporary shanties.

Clever Center Console

Clever Center Console

Essence, by Renzo Menegon, is a multi-task device designed specifically for the BMW MINI Countryman Car and its unique center rail. The design was inspired by a flower, and features 2 articulated “leaves” that can be adjusted manually between positions. In these different positions Essence can act as an arm rest, bottle holder, or even as a compact table perfect for your wine glass (so long as you’re not driving of course). Attractive and useful, this is a great space-management solution.

Totally Rad Repurposing

Totally Rad Repurposing

The skateboard is both the inspiration and the material that forms this awesome series of seating. Each deckstool or deckbench is made from real recycled broken skateboards, making each one unique with its own dings, scrapes, and artwork. Even old trucks are re-used as anchors between pieces. Each one tells a story! Get yours here!

Master Chef with Liberty

Master Chef with Liberty

The Liberty Project is an innovative approach towards modular kitchen and space management. The setup integrates and aligns a refrigerator, cooking area, prep area, microwave, washing area, washing machine, water recycling system, air conditioning and exhaust. The best part about the concept is that the working platform height can be adjusted for wheelchair bound folks. Moreover the platform configuration can be changed to suit individual needs. I really like the concept and the video is pretty neat too!

Arty’s Watch is Captivating

Arty’s Watch is Captivating

For once familiarity doesn’t breed contempt! I’m talking about very familiar Art Lebedev Studio and their amazing concepts seen here on Yanko Design! This time around we have for you the Integralus Digital Watch. It features a double body closure and two display segments (one for hour and one for minutes) that snap together for a secure lock. The body is made of milled aluminium and the elastic bands come in three sizes. Overall I think this is one cool watch.

Leave Me Alone!

Leave Me Alone!

Nothing says “get the f#&% away from my desk” quite like the Efi space divider! Okay, so I’m half-kidding, but it really does provide one very unique way of isolating oneself from others. Lowering the ring blocks nearby visual and phonic distractions, allowing the user to focus on the work at hand. I don’t know about you, but I can certainly think of times that I could shut everyone out at work (as silly as it might look!).

Autonomous Travel Pod

Autonomous Travel Pod

Inspired by biomimicry & artificial intelligence, Autonomo is a fully autonomous vehicle designed to alleviate traffic congestion & maximize the use of existing road networks in large cities in a complex, synchronized system. Autonomo’s on-board computer will make real-time decisions to control direction, detect surrounding objects, anticipate events, and maintain awareness of the environment. Imagine each pod as an individual organism within a much larger pack. Can’t wait for this!

Smooth Operator

Smooth Operator

The Eclipse DECT Wireless Home Phone consists of a base unit and handset embedded together in a single and continuous ellipsoidal form factor. With no visible signs of a display or keypad, the Eclipse conforms to the minimalist school of thought in design. It features a crystal clear display and High Quality Duplex speakerphone, amongst other standard stuff. I like it!
