Sands Of Timed Light

Sands Of Timed Light

Once you are dead asleep, there is little use of the night lamp that keeps burning uselessly. The 15 Minutes Lamp is an innovative fusion of a sand-timer and mood lamp that comes handy in this situation. As the sand flows towards the light at the bottom, the illumination dims out. In about fifteen minutes or so the entire lamp portion gets covered, the lights go off and you are fast asleep.

The Whole Picture

The Whole Picture

How about a camera that splits into two and allows you to take a picture of your subject and yourself! The DUO is just this concept and I think it’s pretty clever. It features a separable camera with synchronized triggers so that you get to take the perfect picture. Essentially the photographer is the subject too!

In this posture the center mass of the individual is located under the spine, positioning them in a stance where mind/body harmony will keep them comfortable.

Refined Ripples

Refined Ripples

The Extraction Quattro washbasin achieves its elegant form by being  cut and turned from a single piece of ripple-shaped stone. The resulting piece mimics the ripple in a smooth, curvilinear and geometric bathroom centerpiece. A perfect compliment to the basin, the extra cut-out material from the original stone makes for a great wall ornament. At a glance, the basin appears to have fallen directly from the wall and onto the surface of the counter!
