A Better Bottle for Extremes

Designed for climates with intense heat, the Gannet bottle features a stainless steel cylinder with a double-walled vacuum to ensure that liquids maintain their temperature for several hours despite the external conditions. With its single-hand, single-motion operated cap, it’s also perfect for cyclists and other sports enthusiasts who need an easy, no-hassle nozzle for quick access to water. Visually integrated to the body with a fresh looking graphic, the cap system is also intuitive to position each time.

Ergonomic Bumrest!

Ergonomic Bumrest!

I’m convinced that beanbags are secretly really hungry monsters. I sit on them and within ten minutes, I’ve sunken in as if it were trying to swallow me. Now while that can get annoying, the actual problem I face is a backache because of the bad posture I end up in. The PUFFi is a delightful little beanbag with an extra layer of padding that not only gives the bag much more character, but makes for better sitting. The layer of padding is removable, for the people who want to be swallowed whole by their furniture. The choice is yours!

Captivating Cutlery

Captivating Cutlery

Every once in a while you stumble across an idea for a product that changes the very notion of it. A tiny alteration here or there and you have something that’s volumes better. (Even though I’ve said something on the lines of this before in another one of my articles, I never tire of saying it over and over. It’s a beautiful feeling when a product defies your expectations. I’m sure you feel the same way I do.)

Follow-Me Purifier

Follow-Me Purifier

The Zephyros strays away from the typical stationary design of other air purifier appliances which only target areas in a single direction. Instead, it features a rotating top half that emits purified air in 360° in addition to the stationary bottom half. To take it a step further, the design features an integrated camera with motion sensor that detects the location of the user, triggering the device to turn in that direction, ensuring that users receive the best air quality at all times.

Filtration on the go

Filtration on the go

You’d be surprised how many diseases are water-borne. Tap water isn’t always the safest way to go, and packaged water is just an unreasonable luxury. The Sukori bottle brings portability to potability. Which means you have the power to filter your water right within your uber-handy bottle. So basically, you get filtered water absolutely anywhere! Not just that, you could use the bottle to hold juices, beverages, etc of any kind.

Stitch Without the Kitsch

Stitch Without the Kitsch

The Stitch chair transforms a 2D single sheet of aluminum into 3D situational seating with a simplistic yet sophisticated system of folds and carefully placed cuts. Once the aluminum sheet has been shaped, soft felt is applied and held in place with vibrant stitching that adds a pop of color and warm, hand-crafted appeal in contrast with its stark shell. See it in the making after the jump!

Open to Light

Open to Light

As a tribute to books (remember those?), the SIVU table lamp utilizes an intuitive folding action to activate and deactivate its light source. However unconventional, the design is practical and that it takes up little space in its closed form and is highly adaptable for casting diffused light in one or more desired directions simply by adjusting its width. Crafted from solid walnut, leather and plexiglass, it’s as dapper as it is durable making it a perfect desk top accessory.

Droops of Coffee

Droops of Coffee

So here is a concept that makes the current coffee capsules redundant and brings in a wave of innovativeness. Imagine a Nespresso Coffee Capsule, flavored and made with a soluble sugar coated substance that makes unnecessary packaging a waste! Win – win situation if you ask me!

Ice Ice Baby

Ice Ice Baby

Making ice cubes is a childish yet fun chore. The chore is the part where you fill up the ice tray. You always have to wipe up afterwards. Not only do you end up spilling water all over the kitchen counter, you end up leaving some of the cubes in the tray empty (that’s quite a bummer, mind you). I don’t even want to talk about removing the ice cubes from the tray. I’ve actually shattered trays in the past trying to get the ice out.
