The Mathematics in Polyhedrons and Pots

The Mathematics in Polyhedrons and Pots

It sounds a bit complicated, but the explanation is worth the effort – apparently there are only five regular polyhedrons in the world, and the dodecahedron is the most stable shape of them. Using this shape in an innovative form, we have the 12 Faces of Structure – Potholder; an interesting take on geometry.

Heel Appeal

Heel Appeal

With footwear like this, it’s obvious that you want to make a grand entrance. Not just visually, because with heels like these, I doubt you could quietly walk into a room! The UNX2 isn’t just a hulking piece of footwear. It’s designed to be a work of art that ensconces your feet. It has a unique design that, at certain viewing angles, gives the illusion of transparency. Coupled with the movement of feet while taking steps, the entire process of walking is celebrated in a stunning marriage between art and science.

What's a Skateboard with legs called?

What’s a Skateboard with legs called?

A Table! The joke may be bad, but the idea isn’t. Here’s a set of tables made out of skateboards. Designed with two perspectives, the tables come in a cabin-esque wooden and a contemporary steel selection. Somehow the transition from a sporty, movable object to a stationary piece of furniture comes very naturally to the skateboard’s form. Hashtag Awesome!

A Right Angled Mindset

A Right Angled Mindset

Old people don’t have it easy. Fashion doesn’t really consider that demographic, which means objects for old people are usually strictly functional, and don’t focus on aesthetics. STIK is a walking stick that’s not just functional but slick in its design too. Meant for scenarios that transcend just walking, the handle detail is designed to act as a support in a much broader sense. And with its unique extruded design, it doesn’t bend under pressure!

Maximising your MINI experience

Maximising your MINI experience

We’ve seen a lot of Virtual Reality (VR) of late. As much as it sounds fancy, it’s actually pretty straightforward. The real wonder is Augmented Reality (AR), which doesn’t just put a screen in front of your eyes. Augmented reality merges virtual elements with things you actually see in front of you. The end result is a series of holograms interacting with actual objects.

Toilet Paper With a Twist

Toilet Paper With a Twist

Even if you have a toilet paper roll holder installed in your bathroom, chances are that every now and then you simply stand up your roll on some bathroom surface rather than replace the old one. Unfortunately, this means bacteria and dust can make their way to your bum! The solution? A toilet paper roll that’s easily extendable to keep the paper elevated from the surface.

The Story of the Zigzag Door

The Story of the Zigzag Door

Other improvisations include E-ink displays that run on low electricity and specific spaces for luggage and umbrellas.
