Bike Stand With A Difference

Bike Stand With A Difference

45Bici is a modular bike rack system intended for urban areas. The stand bends to 45 degrees angle thus saving space while parking the cycle. It makes place for pedestrians and is unobtrusive on the sidewalk. In countries where cycles are predominantly used, this stand will be a handy integration.

Oh No They Didn't

Oh No They Didn’t

I know what you’re thinking. It looks like a sexed up version of the Fiat 500… well, you’re right! The Abarth 500 Bella Vista is a meaner version of the softer compact that’s perfect for zipping around the canyons, cruising the coastline, or simply letting your hair down to enjoy nice weather. Added features like dual air intakes, an aerodynamic carbon fiber air diffuser, and a speedy 1.4 T-Jet Abarth engine will appeal to drivers looking for a little more oomph!

The latest in a trend of “aesthetic flexibility,” the Winora Urban E-Bike taps into a wider range of consumers by using customizable body covers and skins that are easily changed.

The more E-Bikes on the road… the cleaner, quieter and more friendly cities will be!

Budget Billing

Budget Billing

When you are living on a shoestring budget (popularly known as student’s budget), you know that every penny counts. This is why time and again we see designers coming up with innovative ways to split the bill. Go Dutch Bill is one such concept that allows diners to get their bill printed individually, as per their order. Super non-fuss way of doing the math!

Pictures From The Sky

Pictures From The Sky

The idea of aerial photography is not new, but the idea of the Sky View Camera certainly is. I love the cosmic beauty in design, almost like a star or whimsical flower. Details are sketchy, but we do know that it can take pics from mid-air and when placed on a surface. People are fascinated with pictures of them from above, so one of these days the concept will see light. Whether it is as enigmatic as the Sky View, remains to be seen.

Product Design Days + Yanko Design RoadShow

Product Design Days + Yanko Design RoadShow

When I spoke with Scott Wilson, the force behind Lunatik and Tik Tok watches and asked him about the biggest flaw he saw in Kickstarter and other crowdsourcing platforms, he said finding a dependable manufacturer and a logistical supply chain for the product was the biggest drawback. Essentially, you may have a brilliant design, the seed funding, but no reliable support in the manufacturing process. Here is where Product Design Days and the Yanko Design RoadShow fit into your success story by overcoming this flaw.

Designed to withstand the most extreme of conditions, Nevero is a portable laser based 3D measurement system for surveying glaciers. The technology warrants an extremely precise scan of fragile climate indicators.

Orbital Timepiece

Orbital Timepiece

Moon Crater draws inspiration from its namesake with elevated gold numerals 3, 7, and 11 sitting atop raised platforms within a recessed case. The minute and hour hands move across the dial, perfectly encircling the raised numerals as they orbit the center. In black leather and steel, it’s a unique design that either sex will appreciate.

Instrumental Inspiration

Instrumental Inspiration

The modern Rope Stool takes inspiration from the most widely used drum in Korean traditional music, the janggu. The form of the slim waist drum is hinted in the hourglass shape of the structure. Free of adhesives and screws, the raw design is held together with tension created by just 3 ropes and a single dowel.

I just finished reading up a rant by a fellow tech online-writer about how we should not be covering our Smartphones with cases. He probably hasn’t seen many people go through the agony of busting one up due to accidental spills and drops. Or he hasn’t yet seen this witty Vitamin Shield Case. A labor of love by UX agency Light Brain and Joongho Choi, this durable waterproof case has a double zipper feature, making your Smartphone available for use underwater.

Yes, You May Play at the Table!

Yes, You May Play at the Table!

The Attention! cutlery set takes it’s name from the upright position of the knife, spoon and fork trio when placed in the space-saving dock. The clever design utilizes magnets to bond groups of utensils together, making them easy to set and ensuring that strays don’t go missing. It’s a playful conversation starter that dinner guests will love!
