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!

Half an Elevator

Half an Elevator

Here is an enterprising concept that will not only get you where you want to be but also keep you in shape and help conserve energy. The 1/2 Lift Energy Saving Elevator is a lift that stops at half floors. For example, instead of stopping on the second floor, the elevator will stop between the second and third floor, and those who want to go to the second and third floor can get off here. Superb!

Mod-Style Scooter Lamp

Mod-Style Scooter Lamp

The neo-retro design of the MOB lamp series was inspired by mopeds of the sixties and nods to members of the mod subculture who rode them. MOB VELVET contrasts gold with textured black that’s soft to the touch, while MOB WOOD features matte white against raw ash. Each signature “headlight” is equipped with a low voltage halogen bulb and spherical metallic reflector for high brightness despite being only 20 watts.

Whistle Aid

Whistle Aid

The Whistle is a simple glow-in-the-dark blowing implement that survivors buried under rubble can use to attract attention. The compact size and ball-shape make them easy to roll into the rubble area and thanks to their glow, they can be easily located. I suppose the rescue team has to throw in a handful, in the hope that someone catches one and blows the whistle.

Fridge of the Future

Fridge of the Future

Chances are, your upright refrigerator has more than a few items long overdue to be theown out. It’s in part due to our increasingly hectic schedules, but also because the design isn’t conducive to food organization and management. Future Connect refrigeration ditches the large fridge/freezer combo for a modular system of refrigerating units that compartmentalize meals in trays that can also be used for cooking. Each unit also informs the user when items are approaching expiration. Check the vid for more!
