Saved By The Bed

Saved By The Bed

The idea of a safety bed nestled within the railway track system is more than necessary for countries like India, where track-deaths are plenty. U-Roadbed is a U-Shaped roadbed created in the sleepers of the track. This cavity safely nestles the unfortunate person who slips onto the tracks of an upcoming train. I like the idea because any chance offered at survival and saving life is a good one. I only hope it’s a doable idea.

Tangible Alarm

Tangible Alarm

Like a lot of people, I use my phone as my morning alarm clock. And like a lot of people, I love to snooze! But after going through the motions to reset the timer, I’m already awake! This interesting bedside gadget eliminates the need for any touch screen interaction, making it possible to snooze your alarm simply by shifting its position on the rectangular board that syncs wirelessly with your phone. In one easy motion you can set the alarm, snooze it, or turn it off completely!

Unexpected Combo Appliance

Unexpected Combo Appliance

I love a design that merges the functionalities of completely divided products. One part kettle, one part steamer, the Ketmer saves space by combining the two into one thoughtful kitchen accessory. It’s a must have for anyone who appreciates their steamed veggies as much as their afternoon tea.

Alchemist Lamp

Alchemist Lamp

The Molting lamp’s unique arrangement of aluminum and walnut strips that make up its classically shaped shade create a visual eccentricity that appears to change with the viewers perspective. One moment it’s wood, another metal, and sometimes even an amalgamation of the two! The effect is exaggerated by the lined pattern of shadows created by the space between each strip.

Inspired by the magnificence of a magnifying glass, the Dolli Camera is a treasure trove of information and fun. It basically caters to the inquisitive nature of children and encourages them to visit outdoors more often. Urging them to explore the flora, fauna and the insect world, the camera also reveals encyclopedic information to the tots. An engaging way to keep them kids outdoor; love it!

Hoop Time

Hoop Time

The Hoop is a minimalist watch with a dial that sports partially obscured hands. A circle marks the hour and the minute’s hand is a simple design. Crafted mainly from white rubber, the watch is as stark as it gets. Personally I prefer the dash of colors used in the hands rather than the black or white versions.

Tricky for Fishies but Good for Us!

Tricky for Fishies but Good for Us!

Any successful fisherman knows that light is key in making a catch. That’s why so many lures are pretty and glittery, but in deep water they’re really no use as the light only penetrates just below the surface. Problem solved! The Solar Rapala lure harnessed the sun’s energy to power its shimmering LED light, making it not only more effective during daylight but the single best bait to use at night!

Ahoy Vey

Ahoy Vey

Visualize in your mind, for just a moment, a scarf blowing in the wind. Seriously, just do it!  Now look at the VEY yacht and you’ll instantly see the inspiration behind its sweeping, elegant form. The “wings” of this ultimate entertainer’s vessel are visually striking yet functional as they provide shelter from the elements at the aft. In contrast, the exposed bow is perfect for sunbathing, dining, dancing, or having your own Jack and Rose Titanic moment.

Industrial Elegance

Industrial Elegance

The WELDED Table, a Red Dot Design Award Best of the Best recipient, leaves little to be desired in both substance and aesthetic. The design is based around the use of a minimal amount of material and simplified construction process. The tridimensional shape of the legs is achieved with a near-invisble weld that gives it a sleek, refined look while providing structural strength. Loving it in neon!
