Wooden Skyscraper

Wooden Skyscraper

It might surprise you to find that this 34-story residential skyscraper proposed for Stockholm’s cultural hub is composed not of steel, but almost entirely of wood! Though not often used in such vertical structures, the material was chosen for its lightness, natural climate regulation, acoustics and exposed aesthetic quality. While the exterior facade shines with glass, the full effect of the construction is felt inside where every wall, ceiling and floor is clad with natural, warm wood.

Forever Rule!

Forever Rule!

There is always going to be a limit to the length of a ruler, unless something clever comes our way. The Consistent-motion Ruler is clever and innovative. It has moving parts that require your thumb and index finger for support. Simply adjust them along the length of the ruler and keep extending the line. Fantastic!

OCD Street Sweeper

OCD Street Sweeper

The X-CAV street sweeper eliminates the need for multiple machines of different size to do the same job. To adapt to any size street, the undercarriage parallel to the cleaning unit can be extended from 140cm to 300cm. The combination of horizontally and vertically rotating brushes ensures an optimal cleaning coverage at the curbstone in addition to under the sweeper itself. The best advancement however, is an extendable vacuum arm for detailed cleaning under park benches, between cars and other tight spaces. See it in action!

Simple, Smart, and Wearable

First it was the desktop computer, then it was the laptop, and then it was mobile devices. What’s next in the progression? Many speculate the wearable device… and if it’s anything like this concept by Zissou then we’re all for it! Wrist-Borne combines the functionalities of fitness-tracking band, cellphone, and wristwatch into one device that focuses on practicality and ease-of-use in a surprisingly simple way. No buttons, no knobs…it’s the opposite of the Swiss army knife in this category, and that’s why it works!

Lean, Mean, Muscle Machine

Lean, Mean, Muscle Machine

At a glance, this wild bike concept looks more like a sculpture… maybe even something out of the Body Worlds Exhibit! Drawing from our very own anatomy, Zapfina takes inspiration from the relationship between bones, ligaments, and muscles, translating their connection to a design language fit for 2-wheels. The Z shaped frame was formed like a joint to absorb shock and protect moving components like the chain and gears. All it needs is a little human muscle!
