Tourbillon Black Beauty

Tourbillon Black Beauty

Tourbillon is one of the most basic complications that you look for in a watch, the grounding factor and the most poetic one. It is essential in keeping the negative effects of gravity on the accuracy of time telling, away. What we have here is the Tourbillon Black Hole Concept Watch, which is inspired by our universe and especially by the black holes.

Mind Your Step

Mind Your Step

LOOK OUT is a pavement brick concept where the sides of the brick are coated with a naturally illuminating material. The purpose behind this is to make a pedestrian aware of a loose brick and prevent a fall. It happens quite often that the pavement bricks become unleveled and jut out; a simple shiny coat of reflecting Phosphorescent paint is all that it takes to solve the problem.

Beneath the Cambium Layer

Beneath the Cambium Layer

This expertly crafted collection of furnishings takes inspiration from the way in which trees grow, celebrating the tree as both a material and living organism. The ever changing seasonal growth patterns and unique knots change the structure of the wood in subtle ways- this is reflected in the nuance details of each unique piece. The use of a coopering technique can be seen throughout the body of work as a construction method that directly mimics natural growth. The result is an aesthetic of craftsmanship and Danish Modern design paired with raw, organic shapes and textures.

The External Green House

The External Green House

The Garden Pod has one big thing working in its favor – it utilizes the external walls of a dwelling rather than clamoring for space indoors. This modular green house is designed so that it can be fitted onto exteriors of a building and can take advantage of the natural energy sources. A handy app allows you to control the setting of the pod and also relays essential information such as which vegetable is ripe enough and how much compost is available.

Reinventing Oral Hygiene Through Design & Innovation

Reinventing Oral Hygiene Through Design & Innovation

For our entire cultural history, we’ve been developing technologies to simplify our lives. It’s become the main driving force behind our species as a whole: no longer do we evolve to better suit our environment, we modify our environment to suit us. This is true of everything we use in our everyday lives. Take your toothbrush, for example. You probably take it for granted, you don’t even notice it anymore.

Expanding Power

Expanding Power

The Fit In Battery not only resolves the issue of removing a battery from its slot but also expanding to suit A size to AAA and AA sizes as well. Resizing of batteries has been of interest for many years and designers keep innovating on the form and function. The real question here is, when will the makers adopt any of these concepts, or are we really done with the round shape forever?
