Urban Microarchitecture

Urban Microarchitecture

The latest from IN-TENTA, this urban architectural installation called ALL-IN-SQUARE appears to be hand created just for the unique waterfront space where it lives, but in actuality it’s composed of simple, moveable modular elements including granite benches, metal “cocoon” seats, soft lighting, bike stands, granite floor coverings and square pop-ups for shelter, shade or use as a kiosk. Everything a common ground needs for a custom aesthetic, but with less expense and more efficiency.

All That Fur And Memories

All That Fur And Memories

I am hoping that the ostrich fur and rabbit fur used in the making of the MEMORIVE – Memory + Dive lighting box is fake! I’m sure it is, otherwise why would the designers team it up with an acrylic box. The concept plays on the value of keeping your most memorable objects within the fur lining and then discovering a forgotten memory when you try and switch on the lamp. Basically the lamp lights up when you run your hand through the fur and glide it down its length. Check out the video.

Defining The Pendant

Defining The Pendant

The New Pendant Lamp for Wästberg is a creative piece of work by Claesson Koivisto Rune. The lamp seems surprisingly small, yet tactile and friendly. Crafted from Sand-cast recycled aluminum, the lamp is environmentally sound and offer a good reason behind the imperfections of the metal. I love the use of a textile cord; it adds a dash of softness to the design.

Nokia Love

Nokia Love

The Nokia Note is a concept phone that integrates a music player within its body. Just like a mamma roo and her joey, the Windows Phone 8 phablet sports cool specs like measuring 5.5 inches diagonal and a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution with 1080p. An integrated stylus and the detachable Nokia music player on the back, give it the added edge. Looks like there are still some Nokia fans out there who want to give the device another chance.

iKnow, we all waiting in anticipation for something spectacular to come forth and the iWatch rumors are pretty strong. So if we were to indulge in fantasy for a minute, then this is how Esben Oxholm thinks the Apple team would design the phone/watch. Heavily inspired by the look of the iPhone 5 and sporting a minimalistic, sleek look, the watch is crafted with black aluminum on the outside and a thin layer of soft matte rubber on the inside.

Laser GPS In Broad Daylight

Laser GPS In Broad Daylight

The Open Sight is a navigational aid for bicycles that imbibes a safer approach towards riding than traditional gadgets. The case point made by the designer is that we tend to get distracted while trying to find our way using a GPS Navigator. Hence accidents happen; to avoid this situation, the Open Sight GPS beams out powerful directional laser arrows that are visible even during the day. So basically you end up concentrating on your path rather than consulting the GPS interface for directions.
