Boskke Sky Planters Now in Clear

Boskke Sky Planters Now in Clear

If you haven’t yet been turned on to the Boskke Sky Planters, let me shed some light. See what I did there? Shed some light? Plants? Photosynthesis? Anywho – the original Sky Planters allowed any keen gardener short on space to literally hang all their plants. Now it’s available in clear; perfectly suited for plants with roots designed for sun exposure like orchids. It’s also interesting because you can kind of see how it all works. So deceptively simple and beautiful. Currently available in small and medium sizes. Gots to get me some.

A Hook With A Handy Peg

A Hook With A Handy Peg

They’re called Jpegs. No, not the image compression format. It’s a new product from Thabto designed by Jason Caswell. True to form, Jason designs yet another product that’s utterly useful with a sense of humor. The wood coat hooks have handy pegs you can clip mail, photos, and notes too. Each hook has super strong magnets if you prefer to use them on a fridge instead of wall. Get a set of 3 for £12. Love it!

Carbon Fiber Stone

Carbon Fiber Stone

Applied perfectly to this ultra-contemporary garden setting, Peter Donders’ creative seating designs, the C Bench and Stone, instantly command a strong visual attraction. Each uses a single strand of carbon fiber twisted around a mold. When the mold is removed the resulting structure is organic and airy in aesthetic yet incredibly strong. They’re a surprising solution for both indoor/outdoor seating and exceptional for defining a variety of modern spaces.

Freshen that Grill!

Freshen that Grill!

3Deeth is the smart, sanitary solution for freshening your mouth that you can conveniently carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack. The disposable version features a squeezable toothpaste reservoir that disperses paste onto the bristles while the non-disposable version is more rigid for a longer lifespan. After applying toothpaste, the user simply bites down on the device, brushing right to left with the grip. Bristles on both sides tackle hard to reach places on both upper and lower teeth simultaneously!

Thunder Lamp

Thunder Lamp

The simplistic Thunder lamp makes great use of cutting-edge OLED technology with its 3 swiveling, modular sections that provide fully flexible positioning for custom light coverage. As for its name, the bolt-shaped lamp also pairs wirelessly with your smartphone and flashes when you have incoming calls – similar to the sound and flash with thunder and lightning!

The Ultimate Citi Bike

The Ultimate Citi Bike

This is the future and the city’s business district frowns upon those who bring their cars to work. The alternate arrangement is to leave your car at a distant parking lot and cycle your way to work. Why? Overpopulation has taken its toll on the city and this is a plausible solution. In comes the Ford Citi Bike, one that is designed for easy mounting and holding gadgets like laptops and iPad.

The iriver shuffle is a sleek interpretation that merges the player with the earphones. Very often the cables of the earphones get tangled when kept in a bag or the pocket. The unique design of this shuffle solves that problem easily, besides they kinda look neat in your hands.

Literally Rocking Minimal

Literally Rocking Minimal

Designer Jeppe Worsøe Andersen’s rocking horse transforms an iconic, familiar fragment into a sleek, modern design with a minimalist aesthetic. Inspired by Danish designer Poul Kjaerholm’s famed PK-0 chair, this rocker is both radical in aesthetic and thoughtful in construction. The result is a striking blend of materials including dark, form-bent cherry wood and polished steel that make it a solid, functional toy as well as a sculptural accent for the modern home.

Purist High Performance

Purist High Performance

Aldo Schurmann’s Ferrari FT12 concept aims to be the pony brand’s first mid-engine V12, two-seater spider since the 1997 F50. Essentially, it’s an amalgamation of the most prominent design features taken from the Enzo, F40, Daytona, 288GTO, 360, 355challenge and F50 all rolled into one extreme machine. Even though design cues were taken from other models, it somehow seems to be the most Lamborghini-looking Ferrari I’ve seen. Nonetheless, it looks like a lot of fun!

This one of the most innovative ideas I have seen in the world of coffee and the art of brewing it.

This premium professional bean-to-cup beverage system design features a patented swan neck ‘faucet’ and can be built into any counter surface.

LECIA Only Gets Better

LECIA Only Gets Better

Inspired by the monocle and the color wheel, this LEICA X3 concept looks at picking the best features found on smartphones and marrying them with the ones found on a digital camera. So basically this is a lovechild that is the size of a lens and transfers the pictures instantly to your smartphone, tablet or Mac via Bluetooth. The camera is automatically turned on when the lens is flipped out and a simple user interface allows you take pictures in a jiffy.
