The Art Of Folding

The Art Of Folding

I am currently travelling with my family and being on the road for so many days has taught me the value of a good travel suitcase. The Folding Suitcase seen here may look a bit funny to you now, but trust me when you end up buying almost half of Woodbury’s discounted goodies, then a dependable expanding suitcase like this, is all that you need.

The Hanger We Can Use

The Hanger We Can Use

The Staff Hanger is actually a very clever design. The hanger can be closed to resemble a slender staff, thus making the process of hanging clothes a lot easier. Typically we face a problem when we have to hang in our Tees. Stretching the neckline to fit in the hanger can distort the fabric, the Staff Hanger resolves this issue very efficiently.

The Only Cool Treadmill...Ever

The Only Cool Treadmill…Ever

There’s a reason why in-home treadmills often become a place to hang clothes rather than an exercise machine….they’re B-O-R-I-N-G! When you can’t run outside, this is the next best thing. The Voyager is a smart-treadmill that features a large screen and interactive system that together simulate the user’s favorite places to run. Pairing with your smartphone, you can even play games or challenge your friends in an endless library of programs and settings. Do want!

Roaring 2010s Table

Roaring 2010s Table

From looking at the Elvis table, I assumed that its name and curvaceous form were inspired by the famous singer’s quaft doo! To my honest disappointment, it was just a coincidence! The design is actually a semi-reproduction of a 1920s piece the commissioner had taken a photo of, but with designer David Savage’s own unique design language. It captures the 20s distinctive cultural edge in a modern form that’s simply beautiful.

ZIPcycle

ZIPcycle

ZIPcycle is the next evolution of the bicycle, aerodynamically optimized for less exertion & higher cruising speeds. In short, the rider gets more output with less input! The position of the rider is streamlined & elements are enclosed with fairings to greatly reduce drag; so much so that about 40% less energy is required to maintain a cruising speed of 20MPH (double the average commuting speed). The ergonomic riding stance also reduces handlebar strain & seat pressure… all this & riders still get an open-air experience!

Solo Laundromat

Solo Laundromat

The SOLO is a unified laundry system for single folks. Besides being compact and wall mounted, the system cleans, irons, de-stains and refreshes clothes using modern technologies. For a better part it works on the water-less washing system by employing UV lights etc. I love it for its futuristic clean sweep style and ‘shirt-shower’ function!

Floating Brushes

Floating Brushes

Love painting but hate the mess? Well Buoy Brushes can help you a tad bit in keeping things clean. They simply float vertical in a bowl of water, making sure you don’t stain the tabletop. The sizes easily distinguish the brushes and look artsy too!

Dat Weave!

Dat Weave!

The artistic Bocca chair gives the illusion of mass with its expansive, not-so-minimal form, but the unique woven construction makes it lightweight and airy. Manufactured from steel tubing and fabric in an artfully woven mesh voronoi pattern, the design is flexible and and durable, making it a comfortable seating solution indoors and out.

World's First Digital Camera With Retro Shooting Ability

World’s First Digital Camera With Retro Shooting Ability

The Sun and Cloud Self-Generating Digital Camera is one of those gadgets that you can’t give a miss. With the ability to shoot both videos and stills, the ‘sun & cloud’ holds the distinction of being the world’s first self-generating digicam equipped with a solar panel and a hand crank. This means you can charge it via solar energy, kinetic energy or the plain old USB route.

The Elixir Fold

The Elixir Fold

Elixir is a high-quality OLED desk lamp that can fold in three directions and be tucked down along the edge of a desk when not in use. A power outlet is conveniently positioned on its arm so that you can charge your phone or any other gadget using it. The design is space saving and effective. Moreover it is simplistic and maybe this is why I have a soft spot for it.
