Icy Tech

Icy Tech

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. With an emphasis on lightness and comfortable portability, the design makes it easier for scientists and expedition crews to walk for miles up mountains to reach the scanning locations.

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.

WaterDrip

WaterDrip

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!

Hand-spun Lighting

Hand-spun Lighting

Vim & Vigor’s SF lamp series pays homage to the vanishing art of hand spinning metal. Each of the 3 shades are spun before a signature “key hole” is punched in the side. This gap creates a visual perplexity that makes the otherwise symmetrical design appear to change depending on the viewing angle.

Babe Rocker

Babe Rocker

This multifunctional furniture piece combines crib and rocking chair into one singular rocking unit. It’s effective in getting sleepy babies to bed and helps acclimate them to being in a crib. When the young one outgrows the crib, the side unit converts to a magazine rack, giving new life to the chair. Better yet, it’s easy to assemble- 12 screws and 2 ropes later and you have the perfect addition to the nursery that’s great for new parents.

Better Than McDonalds?

Better Than McDonalds?

I love the McDonalds French Fries and the red box that they serve it in. But I think the potatogether is a tad better concept and something all French Fries vendors should consider. The bag makes it easy to get to the fires and once torn open it serves as a handy plate or dish. Simple and functional, I think design is a winner!

Simple Coffee Fix

Simple Coffee Fix

The ‘Stir Then Squeeze’ is neither the first nor the last attempt in unifying the coffee-creamer-stirrer process. However what makes this attempt stand out, is the perfect methodology involved in the coffee – creamer dispensing. Sorry for being biased, but I am a coffee addict, and anything to do with making it easy to get to my cuppa joe, and I’m sold!

Stealthy Seating

Stealthy Seating

A welcome addition to any home or aircraft hangar, this stealthy chair design by Mauro Fragiotta combines angular geometries and stackable functionality into one memorable seating solution. The monoblock injection molded chair is composed of ABS and nylon, making it suitable for both indoor or outdoor use. The dimensions and seating position were inspired by the Eames Plywood chair, but unlike the Eames, this sharp, lightweight design is easily nested in unlimited numbers, making it a great option for storable, extra seating.

Cable Cleaner Upper

Cable Cleaner Upper

Until we nail down wireless charging technology, we can expect to continue dealing with mangy cords. Grrrr. Until then, the ES 01 socket extension aims to clean things up a little by concealing the outlets, plugs and cables under a sleek and discreet lid. The next best thing to hiding cords in the wall, the design makes it easy to organize your work area and in a number of different colors you’ll find one to perfectly suit your aesthetic taste.

E Z Sling

E Z Sling

Unlike the average arm sling, the Z-Cured sling was designed to lock in a variety of positions to enhance both comfort and functionality to cater to different types of arm injuries. Made of alloy steel aluminum and durable ABS plastic, the lightweight stabilizer can move with the arm while holding it in a fixed position, maximizing the arms usability while speeding up recovery time.
