15 Amazing Bicycles For The Future of Seoul

Seoul is one city that is conscious of the fact that we need to ride more bicycles and loosen up the traffic congestion. To advocate their intent Seoul Design Fair hosted the Seoul Cycle Design Competition 2010, where entries from around the world we welcomed. The mission was to provide a cycle for the city dweller, so that he can adopt cycling into his daily routine and lead a healthy lifestyle. The city on its part, promises to provide all the infrastructure needed to promote it. Let’s take a look at main features of 15 of the best entries in random order!

Mobile Hi-Fi Audio, B&W P5 Review

Mobile Hi-Fi Audio, B&W P5 Review

Listen we’re family right? Can I share something with you? They’re called the P5 Headphones from Bowers & Wilkins. You’re probably familiar with their goods. I’ve reviewed them here and here and only had good things to say. The P5 is no different. It’s ultra-lux, sounds good, and has a built-in mic/volume control for the iPhone! I’m not even gonna make you wait til’ after the jump. I’ll tell you now the P5 is awesome. There, I said it. Ambivalent? Hit the jump.

Lucky Babies, Bumbleride Flite Review

Lucky Babies, Bumbleride Flite Review

About 5 years ago I noticed more strollers at design shows. Manufacturers were paying attention to design and function. They were clever with compartments, lightening the overall weight and hiring engineers to make unfolding and collapsing an easy task. With those efforts we now have strollers that make pushing babies around an easy and stylish affair. One such company is Bumbleride. I don’t have a baby myself (at least none that I know of) so I handed this over to a trusting mommy. If anyone is going to speak the truth, it’s a mom so hit the jump.

Big Sound From A Zeppelin Mini

Big Sound From A Zeppelin Mini

I reviewed the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin almost 2 years ago and even to this day, there are few iPod/iPhone speakers that can match its beautiful design and awesome sound. The latest incarnation of the Zeppelin is the Mini. Call it the little brother but don’t be fooled by its size. This is big sound in a little box. Hit the jump for my review.

Buzbox Review, Cool As Ice

Buzbox Review, Cool As Ice

You wouldn’t think much more could be done for an ice cube tray but when one wins a Good Design Award, we have to investigate. The Buzbox by Raaya Design takes a very simple idea and improves it just enough to make life even simpler and it’s priced just right at $15. Hit the jump for my review.

Got Dry Air? Crane DROP Humidifier Review

Got Dry Air? Crane DROP Humidifier Review

We’ve reviewed humidifiers before but if you’re looking for something smaller, you might like the DROP humidifier by Crane. You can pretty much find their humidifiers at many retail locations for under $50 so we always assumed it was another throw away item. Boy were we wrong! Hit the jump for my review.

Runner's Knees Be Gone, Opedix Tights Review

Runner’s Knees Be Gone, Opedix Tights Review

As part of my ongoing research to “Be a 10 in 2010″, I reached out to a company called Opedix who makes a line of support clothing designed for active and athletic people. Their ethos is interesting; clothes that provide proper support and alignment without sacrificing mobility. I got my hands on their Knee Support System (tights) which have been clinically proven to reduce wear and tear on the knees. As someone who has suffered from runner’s knee, I needed to try it. Hit the jump for my review.

Review: naoLoop Loft Your Handy Organizer

Review: naoLoop Loft Your Handy Organizer

To the layman the naoLoop Loft is nothing but a glamorized sheet of metal bended in three places; powder coated and has tension straps to hold things in place. But herein lays the difference: layman vs actual user aka me! I have been using the naoLoop Loft for the past three months and can tell you this; it sure is a handy organizer especially in a house populated with four adults and two children! Hit the jump to read my review.

Custom & Tailored, Shirts My Way Review

Custom & Tailored, Shirts My Way Review

First impressions are an important. Once the resumes have gone out, the phone calls returned, and the invitation extends to finally meet; it’s time to seal the deal. You need to convey a sense of professionalism and originality in the most subtle of contexts. Fashion plays a key role in emoting all of those ideas. Start with the basic dress shirt, but I want you to go one step further. Get a custom tailored dress shirt and the easiest way is online. Hit the jump for my review of Shirtsmyway.com.

Entertain Yourself: Jamo A 804 Speakers

Entertain Yourself: Jamo A 804 Speakers

In part 1 of our Entertain Yourself series we took a look at the Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV. It’s our pick for amazing picture quality, industrial design, and packs a wallop of future proof technologies to take you far beyond 2010. Tho the built-in speakers are a wonder in themselves we wanted dedicated speakers. Last year we came across the Jamo A 804 and have been in love ever since.

Entertain Yourself: Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV

Entertain Yourself: Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV

In this first of a three-part series called “Entertain Yourself”, I’m going to put together a quick and dirty home entertainment center out of three products I’ve reviewed earlier this year. Mind you, this won’t please the hardcore video or audiophile. I wanted products that seamlessly balance industrial design with home entertainment and as designers, we all know that’s how the general consumer perceives products. I call it utilitarian sex and first up is the stunning BRAVIA NX800 HDTV from Sony.

Portable Subwoofer For Your MacBook

Portable Subwoofer For Your MacBook

Not happy with your MacBook speakers? Sound a little flat don’t they? The Bassjump is a USB powered subwoofer that turns your MacBook into a sweet sound system. It looks like an aluminum Mac mini which perfectly compliments the new unibody aluminum MacBooks. Hit the jump for my review.

Yakima QuickBack is Bike Rack Easy

Yakima QuickBack is Bike Rack Easy

James Owen is well known around these parts for his stunning cat scratching post so when I found out he designed something as utilitarian as a trunk mounted bike rack for Yakima, my cat ears perked up. I’m not an avid bicycler but as the owner of a smaller car, a removable portable rack is perfect to getting me to and from trails around Los Angeles. Hit the jump for my review of the Yakima QuickBack.
