Sound DNA

Sound DNA

In the shift to electric vehicles, there’s one thing we’re really going to miss about our old combustion engines… the sound! Whether your tone of choice is a low grumble or high-pitched whir, the voice of the vehicle has forever been a deciding factor for new car owners. While it doesn’t offer a solution to maintaining the sound experience, the Spectra concept vehicle’s unique form was inspired by the Doppler effect created by today’s F1 cars.

Basic Time

Basic Time

The purpose of a clock is to tell the time, and if we have one that portrays that in a very simplistic way, then it’s like Dieter’s good design. The TIME-LINE is a clock that reduces its expression to a single clock hand and a small LED light. Ironically the design process for this clock began with the idea that we need to make time simple.

Very Non-Kinky Plug!

Very Non-Kinky Plug!

The Spring Charger adds a spring to the plugging wire so that you get extendable cords in a jiffy. Most charging wires are straight and long and have no sense of flexibility. The Spring Charger has a line much longer than any and yet is portable and handy.

How’s the air up there?

Aerio is a nifty gadget that aims to provide users with information about their environment’s air pollution. Paired with the user’s smartphone, the device transmits data to a central network with other devices also giving real-time air quality updates. More than just a sensor, it also brings awareness to the user’s own individual carbon footprint in hopes of encouraging eco-conscious behavior throughout the day.

The Less is More Phone

The Less is More Phone

While the majority of modern smartphones focus on more, more, more to increase productivity, the CELs phone was developed from the belief that less distraction and “uni-tasking” rather than multitasking is the key to being productive. It focuses on just 4 basic functionalities: music, photography, fitness, and communication. What it lacks in apps (even internet!), it makes up for in a cool, quirky aesthetic and a straightforward, user-friendly interface!

Who knows maybe they turn into keen divers at a later stage! Ahoy kids!
