Smart Stretcher

Smart Stretcher

Lenify is a collapsible emergency stretcher that all but eliminates the chances of secondary injuries caused by lifting patients onto the stretcher. The solution: divide the stretcher into three parts to stabilize the upper body, arms/midsection, and lower body. This unique construction makes it possible to “scoop” the individual into the stretcher rather than the traditional “lift and drop” method.

The Ziggle Grill

The Ziggle Grill

Love the Ziggle for being this compact portable grill that looks neat and is functional. Typically grills are cumbersome and inconvenient, especially when you are out camping. The small size and compact demeanor make this zig a must-have on your camping gear list. Too bad it’s still a concept!

Wash And Dry At Once

Wash And Dry At Once

The Dry Hand’s Faucet incorporates the hand dryer within the faucet system. Basically after washing your hands you simply need to swivel the faucet head to activate the hand dryer. Looks to be a good solution for those who prefer the hot air dryer to the paper towel!

Seedlings of Light

Seedlings of Light

This elegant pendant lamp takes it namesake and organic shape from one of mother nature’s own: the seed! The Seed lamp creates an ambient, diffused glow to achieve the ideal mood anywhere from the dining table to the lounge. As it appears to drip from the ceiling, the pendant has a somewhat-alien aesthetic brought back to earth by it’s natural curves- a perfect contrast for modern spaces.

Musical Stairs

Musical Stairs

Leander Angerer and David Ross’ revamp of this late Victorian staircase introduces subtle modern touches to accentuate the classical style. Tennis racket string sewn into the handrail replaces the banisters while a floating marble plinth replaces the first step. Other extraneous parts were taken away and hand-modified to give it a lighter, renewed aesthetic. Not only nice to look at, the strings can also be plucked, turning the house itself into a giant musical instrument!

Bendy and Beautiful

Bendy and Beautiful

Composed of individual strips of bent eucalyptus wood laminate, the Eira chair’s unique form and material flexibility make it one of the the most comfortable rigid chairs out there. Surprisingly “soft,” the user will feel the wood flex to the curves of the body with each change in position. While somewhat large in size, the chair is distributed unassembled in a compact box where each component fits snugly for easy shipping and construction.

Painless Vaccinations

Painless Vaccinations

I would do anything to not make my baby go through painful vaccinations, but the hard truth is that they simply must. Keeping this in mind we have the VACC-STAMP, which offers a safe and painless way to give vaccine shots. It leaves them with a heart-shaped stamp on their skin rather than a face full of tears!

Emergency Camping

Emergency Camping

The V Plus is an emergency relief tent ideal for folks stuck in disaster relief zones. The tent is equipped with features like the ability to create its own power via solar cells. Single tents can be interconnected to larger ones, thus accommodating more people together. The exterior of the tent is made up of advanced flexible solar cells that generate enough power to satisfy the tent’s energy demands.

Light Bulbs Exposed

Light Bulbs Exposed

The inspiration behind the FRAMED collection was to highlight the beauty of designer LED bulb within each pendant. As the name suggests, each sculptural pendant frames the light bulb itself as the focal point of the design with blades composed of the highest grade aircraft aluminum anodized in black. Flat-pack ready and easy to assemble without any tools, they’re a quick solution for a striking aesthetic.

A Drip-Free World!

A Drip-Free World!

It’s no secret that the caffeine craving experienced by us coffee lovers is strong enough to risk having a ruined table or smeared papers! But now, that’s a thing of the past! The Drop Rest mug is an ingenious design that catches drips before they make it to the paper or surface of your desk. Capitalizing on the physics of surface tension, a thin groove keeps small, nuisance droplets in place so there’s no need to worry about coffee stains. So simple, it makes you wonder why you didn’t think of it first!

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.
