Nokia Lumia Play Powered By Xbox?!

Nokia Lumia Play Powered By Xbox?!

I wouldn’t like to call it the love child of Nokia and Microsoft but the Nokia Lumia Play Concept Gaming Smartphone has that kinda vibe where I don’t know if this baby is a happy one or not. With features that aid gaming, the extremely powerful hardware is capable of delivering stunning graphics. To solve the issue of ergonomics while playing a variety of games, the Nokia Lumia PLAY features two pads located on the back of the phone that you can use as gamepads.

Defining Lighting

Defining Lighting

The versatile LightSpace pendant lamp utilizes dual LED systems that operate independently for fully customizable glow. The large disc-shape is ideal for dining environments, and also serves as an acoustic dampener for table conversation. With a tasteful blend of American ash, industrial wire cabling, and acrylic/Echopanel LED soft lighting segments, it’s a striking addition to a variety of contemporary and tradition spaces.

Massively Minimal

Massively Minimal

The SPAN table’s unusual yet simple construction achieves a bold, deceivingly bulky aesthetic that is actually composed of minimal material usage and slender proportions. Composed of sweet chestnut and toughened glass, the legs are jointed with bespoke corner fillets that mirror the legs themselves, independently bonded to the glass top. Lit from above, this striking separation is visible through the translucent top.

Pull & Change

Pull & Change

Designed by Stockholm-based design studio Whatswhat, the Pull lamp’s personality is both organic and distinctively true to its Scandinavian design heritage. The partly exposed, partly hidden cord is a connection between all elements while also serving as the mechanism to adjust the position of the shade. The user can simultaneously transform the angle of the light and character of the lamp by a simple adjustment of the cord.

Aesthetically Unique and Pleasing

Aesthetically Unique and Pleasing

Typically this not the phrase you will use to describe an extension cord, but nevertheless, designer by Youngkwang Cho feels that he has the hang of it. I agree with him that extension cords and spike-busters are best left hidden behind sofas and desks, but if you have something as aesthetically unique and pleasing as the Curious Extension Plug, then maybe you’d like to show it off.

The Magical Sound Of BALLO

The Magical Sound Of BALLO

Objects You Obsess or OYO did the right thing by engaging the designer duo Fabian Bernhard and Thomas Burkard for their new speakers. The tiny gadget provides ample sound and bass thanks to the clever designing. The speakers juice power through a built-in rechargeable Lithium battery and work with most audio devices. It features a 3.5mm jack for headphones and the colorful belt used to fuse the two spheres actually doubles up as a protection and bass tone enhancer when lying on a surface.

Klok for Dummies

Klok for Dummies

Digital clock designs tend to be ugly and oddly difficult set up, but the KLOK is a fresh take on the digital clock/iPhone dock that makes things easy as pie! A single button/knob graces the front and needs only to be turned left to adjust minutes and right to adjust hours, then press once to set the time. To set the alarm, just readjust the time and press twice! It’s easy to remember, so you don’t have to worry about losing the manual!

Inspired by the warm ambiance created by a wood-burning fire, the Log lamp instantly transforms from ornamental object to lighting element in just one motion.

Press again to switch the light off and return the top to the lower position. Check out the vid to see how it works!

Well Timed Closure

Well Timed Closure

The Subway Signal Light is a digital sand timer that intuitively changes color from green, to amber to red, informing the passenger through passive visual clues, that the doors to the train are about to close. As far as subway safety is concerned, you can’t be too safe. Just the other day I saw a lady get caught between doors because she tried to rush through the doors at the last minute. Hopefully visual clues will help people understand better that green says go and red says STOP!

Earth-Inspired Seating

Earth-Inspired Seating

The Mägi (Estonian for “mountain”) bench’s striking construction is composed of just two parts: the upper with simple and pure geometry that constitutes the seat in contrast with the lower base where jagged lines remind of stylized contours of headlands and mountainscapes while serving as both support and storage for books, magazines and other items.

We Still Love Nokia Concept Phones

We Still Love Nokia Concept Phones

A whole lot of people have given up on Nokia and the sad truth is that if you don’t keep innovating yourself effectively, the competition will eat you for dinner! Oh well, we do have some loyalists who would like to envision their next mobile phone as a handsome side-pop slider with a transparent screen frame. So say hello to this Nokia concept that looks neatly rendered and with some awesome specs. I’m sure if this were a concept Sammy branding then we would get more nods saying ‘aye we like this! Ah people!
