Ring of Time

Ring of Time

The Ring Clock concept was designed without inhibition as a product that might be able to exist in 10 years or so… but thanks to its futuristic appeal & simple functionality, it might become a reality sooner than you think! 144 ultra-thin mono-color LEDs are contrasted against surgical stainless steel. When you are looking for the time, just spin the ring to activate the blue & orange LEDs. To recharge, simply place it on the wireless clock-dock charger to restore full power that lasts a week! Watch its ice-cool display in action ->

The Bike of Girls' Dreams

The Bike of Girls’ Dreams

Designed with ladies in mind, the Amelie bike is as functional as it is a fashionable decor item. It’s less about the sweat-inducing exercise and more about matching with cute shoes and clothes! At the center of the retro-style beach cruiser is a streamlined compartment just big enough to carry beauty accoutrements from lipstick and eye-liner to sunglasses and scarfs.  After a ride, freshen up with your on-board beauty kit!

Space Saving Bike Lift

Space Saving Bike Lift

Cyble is a interactive bicycle rack that focuses on spatial savings to secure bikes in public spaces. Users manually push their front wheel into the keyed locking mechanism where it is clamped in place. After being secured, Cyble automatically lifts the bike vertically, keeping it out of harms way and out of the reach of thieves while also saving horizontal space.

Slide-phone Inspired Faucets

The Reece Slide Tap is a different take on the typical slider phone; it is a faucet that uses the innovation of touch-pads to the fullest. You can turn on the tap by simply sliding the top and control the temperature via the touchpad on the handle. You can preset the temperature, thus eliminating wastage.

A Chair We'd Like to Nom Nom

A Chair We’d Like to Nom Nom

As you might guess by the name, the Candy Chair was inspired by designer Jeong Yong’s insatiable sweet tooth! Shapes taken from his sugary favorites give it a soft, inviting aesthetic. It’s probably a good thing it’s not actually edible… because it looks deliciously lemon in bright yellow.

Even a Toilet Can Be Cute

Even a Toilet Can Be Cute

Old-school “water-closets” (those toilets with the reservoir mounted on the wall, suspended above the bowl) use gravity to force water into the bowl. While effective, they aren’t around much anymore because of the huge amount of space they require. The satirically-named Element Water Closet  applies entirely different physics to achieve the same amount of flushing power but with less water and while occupying even smaller space than conventional bowl toilets.  See how it works—>

More than just a bucket...

More than just a bucket…

In a surprising merging of products, the Solar Energy Bucket serves as a multifunctional tool for anyone who likes to rough it. At first glance it appears to be a simple water bucket, but turn it upside down and you’ll see a small solar panel which harnesses the sun’s energy during the day. The stored energy can then be used to power the built-in light or even gently heat the water. Peculiar… but genius!
