Easy Spray for Refs

Easy Spray for Refs

Currently, the marker that referees use to show the position of “free-kick” and “defensive walls” in soccer games isn’t much different than a simple can of classic spray paint…. and if you’ve ever held a can of spray paint, you know it’s not exactly light or ergonomic. This innovation on referee spray solves these two issues, making it more compact, ergonomic, lightweight, and easy to use. After all, the spray should be… well… sportier!

Protective Patterns

Protective Patterns

Skateboarding is cool, but, unfortunately, protective gear like knee pads and helmets just aren’t! They lack aesthetic appeal and are often too difficult and time consuming to put on… causing many to avoid protecting their body at all. The PLEXUS collection of gear finds safety, flexibility, ventilation, performance and cool looks in an intricate voronoi web that adapts to the wearers movement. Who would’ve guessed that the application of this simple pattern would be such a huge improvement!

Jell Balls That Clean

The Jell Balls is a home appliance that can be used for cleaning up the floor. It basically uses the jell surface tension principle to make the eight jell surfaced balls to roll around a space and clean it.

Proof that Less is More

Proof that Less is More

To say that Igor Sirotov’s Frame house is minimal doesn’t begin to do it justice! Everyday interior elements like seating, beds, lighting and tables are few in number but full of interesting and thoughtful textures and materials, making them a perfect foreground to highlight the steel, wood and concrete canvas. A stunning example of minimalism, the Frame house proves it’s not about what’s inside, it’s about what’s not!

Concrete Cast Lighting

Concrete Cast Lighting

The Bullet lighting collection celebrates the versatility of an age-old material, yet one that isn’t commonly used in lighting… concrete! The coneal shape of each shade makes it a great pendant option but can also be positioned on the floor or shelf for directional lighting. A spectrum of vibrant color options give this otherwise stark designpouts the right amount of pop.

'Pick Up Stix' And Tell The Time

‘Pick Up Stix’ And Tell The Time

The Cross Over Watch is a good take on the game “Pick up stix”, it features contemporary and graceful hands that appear to be precariously balanced rotate around the dial. What makes it striking is the way the hands are slightly askew to the center giving this timepiece an elegant vibe.

POGO, The Breakaway Cable Adapter

POGO, The Breakaway Cable Adapter

How many times have I found myself on the row machine, just eating those meters, only to be derailed by a loosely hanging headphone cable, dragging my phone out of my pocket, tossing it across the floor as if Gorilla Glass really was unbreakable. It’s a terrible feeling. I’ve since switched to a bluetooth headset which makes me look kind like a douche in the gym but I digress. The POGO aims to solve this problem by using 4 pins to magnetically connect and breakaway upon stress. Designer Jon Patterson is currently looking for a partner to mass produce it.

Obsessed with the Philips Sonicare Airfloss

Obsessed with the Philips Sonicare Airfloss

Let me put it on out there. I hate flossing. Winding a piece of string and forcing it through the most sensitive regions between my teeth seems incredibly archaic. It may be effective, but very crude. I don’t care how many dentists tell me it’s “normal” to experience some bleeding. I’m sorry, it is NOT normal to bleed. And that brings me to one of my favorite gadgets this year, a new way to floss using nothing but air and a bit of liquid. I’m totally obsessed!
