Stylish Meets Space-Saving Stool

Stylish Meets Space-Saving Stool

More often than not, folding functionality means a sacrifice in aesthetics for many objects including bikes, tables, and seating. The Tension Stool, however, finds that harmonious sweet spot between folding ability and style. Its minimal yet effective construction is at once sculptural and useful for supplementary seating that can be stowed away with a simple collapsing of its 3 legs. To get it out of the way, just slide it under the bed or sofa!

Concealed and Convenient

Concealed and Convenient

Switchblades are for gangsters. Army Knives are for, well, army people (duh). What about the general populace? People who randomly need a knife to cut something open, or cut something loose? You can’t keep a full fledged knife on your body at all times. That’s the first sign that you may need therapy. The Screwpop is a tiny little knife to get the job done. It has its own stainless steel protective cover (that also opens bottles…whut whut!), and a brass eye that allows the knife to be secured to your keychain or carabiner clip.

An Artistic Eco-Twist on the Hanger

An Artistic Eco-Twist on the Hanger

Victor Puzur’s “Trempel” clothes hanger transforms ordinary industrial cardboard tubing into elegant space-saving hangers that perfectly support the shoulders of your shirts, jackets and sweaters as well as accessories like scarves and belts. Each is created by cutting the cardboard tubing at an angle and inserting a pop-rivert with a standard hook. The sculptural result is recycled, reusable art for your closet!

From Flat to Flex

From Flat to Flex

At first glance, it might look super rigid… but take a seat and you’ll find the Flexi chair to be quite bum-friendly! Crafted from wood and aluminum, its seat flexes to the user’s unique body shape before popping back into place when they get up. It blurs the lines between what we think LOOKS comfortable and what IS comfortable.

Blade or Skate in One

Blade or Skate in One

Who doesn’t remember that awkward transition from roller-SKATE to roller-BLADE? For some of us, it was the other way around and we still haven’t mastered it! Either way… the Changeable Roller Skate performs exactly as it sounds and features a wheel shaft structure that allows the conversion from double rows to a single row of wheels. Great for beginners or for those just looking to switch things up!

Wrist-worn Medication Reminder

Wrist-worn Medication Reminder

Because Alzheimer’s is associated with memory loss, a suffering patient’s ability to remember to take the medication that helps them can be severely reduced. This solution helps with a regimented dosing program by integrating a small pillbox into the back of a wristwatch. The timepiece then alerts patients when its time to medicate, giving them a sense of independence from external help.

Bric-a-Brac Mac

Apple thought that the most natural progression in terms of design for the Macbook was to make it sleeker and colour it gold. The guys at Jolt thought “Nah, let’s go old school…”, and out came the first ever Brik case for the Macbook. Now you can pimp out your laptop case however you see fit! With a dash of nostalgia, that too!

Living Accessories

An exploration into both 3D printing & programmable materials, Flexible Textile Structures are not only wardrobe accessories, but active structures that can adjust themselves when power is applied. One can be manipulated into any desired configuration & hold its shape even when force is released. The textile can be reshaped depending on the wearer’s aesthetic preference. The other reacts morphologically to changes in its surroundings, expanding & contracting to adapt to external forces.
