Very Clear, It’s Blood

Very Clear, It’s Blood

With the IBB Blood Transfusion Packs there will be no room for error while administering blood to those who need it. The packaging makes it almost impossible for you to make a mistake, because the letters A, B, or O appear prominently when the bag is filled with blood. Every part of the bags except the letters is translucent and this is what makes it distinctive.

The Skinny on Stone

The Skinny on Stone

Piero Lissoni’s DRITTO collection of side, coffee and dining tables for Salvatori blur the line between the material limitations of minimalism. The tables achieve a bold, substantial aesthetic by using ultra-thin slabs of carrara marble as well as post-recycled pietra d’avola and lithoverde stone, but each maintains a sense of lightness from the sheer thinness of the tops complimented by simple, geometric frames. Now you can get that raw, stone finished look without the aesthetic and physical heaviness of large slabs.

Backpack Body Fusion

Backpack Body Fusion

Ok, so if you turn it around it would sorta look like one of those pregnancy simulators… but it’s because of these natural curves that the Fusion Ultimate Black backpack is so darn comfortable! The ergonomic design follows the natural curvature of the body to make it flexible, comfortable, aerodynamic and easy to wear for longer periods of time. In full grain calf leather it’s also durable enough to take almost anywhere.

100 Years of BMW

100 Years of BMW

Designed for the year 2017, the BMW Rapp concept is a celebration of the brand’s century-long history, paying tribute to Beemer’s founding mechanical engineer, Karl Friedrich Rapp. The concept attempts to capture the most prominent design features across different models over the years such as the under-angled front grill, reverse doors, and high position tailpipes… rolling them into a single 2-door roadster with a hybrid aesthetic of retro and modern style.

Wild-Inspired, Nordic by Nature

Wild-Inspired, Nordic by Nature

Moloform celebrates the launch of their premiere product line with this trio of pendants- the Zebra lamps. The minimalist design is characterized by true Scandinavian style with simple lines and angles formed from a single sheet of aluminum. The sheet is folded to form a polygonal piece where slivers of light are visible through each crease. With three variations in pure white, each is a perfect compliment to modern interiors.

Shop Shark

Shop Shark

Sharks, water, inhaling… I can’t think of a more opposite inspiration for this electric tool! But that’s precisely the cool-factor behind this handy shop blower! It biomimics the form of the basking shark’s strangely large mouth, inverting the functionality to push out rather than intake. Cleaning up shop has never been more creative!

The Carry Pill

The Carry Pill

Mainly intended for the silver generation, I love the simplicity of the Convenient Pill Box. It combines the convinence of carrying your daily meds with a PET water bottle by integrating as bottle cap. The shape is ergonomic and makes it easy to open the bottle and the “Date Setting” on the pill box prevents the users from taking the expired pills. Easy and awesome!

Staples Right!

Staples Right!

Innovative stationery has always fascinated me and the Right Angle Stapler is a winner in my eyes. We have managed to increase the width, size and capacity of the humble stapler but no one has ventured into its orientation. Stapled papers develop ugly dog-ears and the Right Angle Stapler prevents this. I have only two words for this concept – LOVE IT!

3D Shoes! Footloose!

3D Shoes! Footloose!

By pairing data acquisition, user behavior, and rapid prototyping, the designers at Pensar wish to create footwear conforming to our individual anatomy and using biomechanics as the foundation. The DNA concept leverages rapid manufacturing to create a shoe built to our foot contours. Pressure sensors and accelerometers fitted trainers are taken for a run and then based upon the data collected, the 3D printed shoe is created!

Mortal Time

Mortal Time

Time is a great reminder of the fact that there are some things unexplainable about this world we live in. For example faith, belief and hope, all come to us at a time when we need them the most. To signify the importance of god and faith, we have here the Crux Watch.
