Speakers of the Sea

Speakers of the Sea

These speakers celebrate and take inspiration from the natural world, using biomimicry for enhanced audio and aesthetics. Soundwhale surround sound provides multidirectional audio in the form of a whale passing through a wave while the Fishead focused speaker is a skeletal interpretation of the mouth of a fish where sound emanates. Composed of matte ceramic, polished titanium and oak wood, they’re an elegant compliment to entertainment systems anywhere from your boat to your beach house.

The Z Cool Fridge

The Z Cool Fridge

The Z-Refrigerator is a refrigerator, which has the function of professional cook’s fridge and is the size of a double-door fridge. It is has the Z structure; when door is opened to the left, there is a large space, and to the right is a space where drinks and instant food can be stored. The fridge also saves energy by minimizing the amount of cold air escaping at once. I think I like it more for its funky design more than anything else!

Sh*t Happens

Sh*t Happens

Yes, pets mess up the lawns, driveways, hallways…almost everywhere. And all we can think of doing is getting rid of the dump asap. If we take a step back and look at the alternative then the ‘Convertor of Pet Waste’ doesn’t sound like a bad option. The device basically converts the pet’s dump into a useful biological fertilizer.

Thin is in.

Thin is in.

The skinny on this minimal lighting design by Terrance Seah is just that…. it’s skinny! The Cloudline  lamp sets the mood with diffused LED light that emits upwards from its thin, linear structure. Lightweight and technically simple, it’s both easy to mount and easy to operate with its touch sensitive dimmer. It’s a great way to efficiently illuminate any space with little disruption to the aesthetic of rooms in minimal style.

The Mini Blender

The Mini Blender

As far as kitchen appliances go, we have seen very little action with the hand blender. Limited innovations mean a lot of scope for improvement; maybe this is why I fancy this Mini Hand Blender concept. It’s an all-in-one deal that can be operated with one hand. The rechargeable unit can be turned on or off with the flick of the wrist. The Blender case, Blender, and mixing bowl are designed as a single unit so that the blades are kept hygienically stored and safe.

Moop The Mop

Moop The Mop

The Moop is a mopping system that not only helps clean up the room but also uses technology to its advantage. The electronic bucket has the capability of recycling the murky water, sanitizing it again for reuse. Although the designers have not explained the workings of this mop, but imagining a system where simple methods for recycling and reusing the water sounds like a good ‘green’ idea.

The smaller the car, the harder it is to get in and out of… right? Wrong!

The other kind of corner...

The other kind of corner…

Shelving units that are adapted for the inside of corners are a common and useful storage solution, so why not expand this concept to outward-facing corners for even more space-savings? Designer Kim Hyung Geun answers this very question with his latest piece- a versatile shelving system that makes the most out of both kinds of corners that are just waiting to be used! Easy to mount and easy on the eyes, it’s a simple way to bring more shelving into compact spaces.

You Can’t Touch This!

You Can’t Touch This!

Aptly put by the designers, the Lizard Umbrella sheds its handle as a defensive mechanism against thieves. What this means is that you get to take the umbrella handle with you, when it needs to be deposited in a public place, like a restaurant’s umbrella stand. Without its handle, the umbrella appears to be broken and less desirable!
