Back to the Drawing Board

Back to the Drawing Board

That phrase has less relevancy with the advent of digital design tools, but this creative workstation merges the physical scale of the classic designer’s board with the functionality of a tablet into one unit that classic sketchers and digital designers alike will appreciate. Called Voltra, it hearkens back to a time when pencil and paper were solely available, but instead… it’s a stylus and touch screen!

Finger Fatigue No More

Finger Fatigue No More

Years of writing and drawing have left a small hard callus right on the first knuckle joint of my middle finger. I can’t help it. I’m just heavy handed. It irks me enough that I partake in manicures and paraffin waxes just to soften it. Emma is a little accessory that protects your hand and secures the pencil into an ergonomic position. Wish I had this!

A Fountain Pen For The Modern

A Fountain Pen For The Modern

Fountain pens may lend an air of sophistication but damn can they get anymore dated? I mean all I need is a monocle, a bowler hat, a tweed suit and I’m all set. This fountain pen design but Vivien Muller updates the ubiquitous writing tool to where I wouldn’t mind using one. Okay ergonomics may have taken a backseat here but hell, it’ll look sexy just sitting on my desk.

Wheel of Fortune Telling

Wheel of Fortune Telling

Straight off the desk of George W. Bush comes the “decision maker”. Great for deciding foreign policy blunders, words other than “recession” to use while describing the US economy, and most importantly, what’s for lunch. Designed by Pu Tai, the “Decision-Making Compass Kit” is a fun little concept that takes the guess work out of most annoying choices in life.

Origami for Superheroes

Origami for Superheroes

If wearing bullet proof tights and bending steel with your fingers is no big feat for you, you may be into this pencil sharpener that is literally ‘folded’ out of a single sheet of stainless steel. Designed by Donn Koh, this “Origami Sharpener” design captures the spirit of origami with folds that create volumes for ergonomic handling and also form the channel walls to guide pencils into place; the grinded edge forms the shaving blade.

Fort Focus

Fort Focus

I am sure everyone at one point has felt the urge to crawl into a box and hide from the world. I know I can’t live without that sense of confined privacy I get when I am tucked away in my car while in traffic, hidden behind my tinted windows. Sure, I know people can still kinda see me as I pick my nose or pound on the air drums, but I don’t care. It’s my very own little fortress from the world.

Alice in Amsterdam

Alice in Amsterdam

What better way to arouse creativity and inspiration than clean, white spaces filled with glowing ambient light? Some might argue that the lack of visual stimuli might create the opposite affect, but I beg to differ, and so do the Amsterdam based architects UXUS. They decided to use their own offices to showcase their latest creation that is self described as a “mysterious and poetic atmosphere of old and new world fables,”

Don't Intrude On My Personal Zone

Don’t Intrude On My Personal Zone

We all have it, what people call the “personal space” or “zone” – the area around us that if impeded on makes us uncomfortable. The Eclipse Office Partitioning System was developed to address the issue of privacy and lack there-of in open plan designs seen in workplaces today.
