Timed Ring

Timed Ring

The Ring Clock is a simple approach to marry two of the biggest and much needed accessories that we use. Yes, we wear rings and we wear watches, and it’s not the first time that the two have been integrated. What I really like about the Ring Clock is that it is designed simple, with the clock aspect integrated into the ring’s band. The ring rotates as time goes by, and thus showing the current time.

Wally, The iPhone Wallet Case

Wally, The iPhone Wallet Case

It’s sexy, sleek and totally incognito with your credit cards. Wally isn’t yet another wallet case, but rather a handcrafted leather pocket that grabs onto the back of your iPhone to secretly and securely hold what you need to have close at hand. Instead of a bulky case or a wallet with a pocket for your iPhone, Wally clings to the back of your iPhone utilizing micro-suction instead of a glue or magnets, Wally has a grip like a gentleman: strong and secure, without leaving behind any tackiness.

A' Design Awards & Competition 2013 - Call for Submissions

A’ Design Awards & Competition 2013 – Call for Submissions

In my interview with Yves Béhar, he told me that taking part in design competitions is a good thing for designers from two perspectives. One, you get to measure yourself in comparison to others from the same stream and two, you get evaluated by creditable people from the industry and thus your claim to fame is a validated one. This and many other reasons make it important for you as a designers to consider taking part in the 2013 A’ Design Awards & Competition.

A New Way to Store and Carry Paper

A New Way to Store and Carry Paper

Even in our digital age, there are still a handful of people, including architects & engineers, who use paper on the daily. The Duo paper storage solution aims to make transporting & storing sheets a direct, safe, & quick process opposed to the existing cylindrical tubes which often damage the paper during use. The design divides the inner hollow of the cylinder in two parts, utilizing the center with an additional cylinder for storing unused sheets while preserving drafts & documents in the outer cylinder.

Takes In Any Size Baby!

Takes In Any Size Baby!

The Twist is a very cool pencil sharpner that takes in any size pencil. The different diameter-sized pencils fit in comfortably thanks to the spring steel body that adjusts to the form. It negates the need for a dedicated sharpener or the need to buy multiple sharpeners to suit your pencils.

The Tea Cup SlingsHOT

The Tea Cup SlingsHOT

I never realized that dealing with a tea bag was so frustrating! Admittedly, I’m also more of a coffee drinker… but I can still see why the SlingsHOT Tea Cup is appealing. The slit in the handle keeps the tag from falling in and allows the user to squeeze the liquid out of the soaked bag simply by pulling back as you would a slingshot. Just be careful not to pop yourself in the eye!

Missile-proof Your iPad

Missile-proof Your iPad

The Tank was developed for the extreme iPad user (and those who are just plain accident prone!). The rigid aluminum case matches the minimal Apple aesthetic and was designed to protect all of the most vulnerable parts of your precious iPad. The top and bottom shells fit snugly around the exterior while an ultrathin polymeric membrane buffers contact between the metal and glass. The raised X pattern isn’t just for looks; it also prevents scratches and reduces pressure. Own it here!

The Power Of Musical Resonance And Décor

The Power Of Musical Resonance And Décor

There is a reason why they say that music is a universal language that transcends all boundaries. It is powerful enough to break all barriers and yet potent enough to create the most memorable moments of our lives. For example, how many of you have that ‘our song’ with the one you love? Now imagine converting the intensity of that music into Spectrum Decor Artwork or maybe a recorded ‘I Love You’ sound waves for Resonant Decor!
