Green Beast

Green Beast

An electric green shell. Bold, sporty, aggressive styling. Ultra-bright adaptive LED headlights. A super-flexible racing-style seat. Horsepower for days. These are just a few ways you might describe this sexy…. TRACTOR! (Gotcha!) But seriously, the T-Ractor concept is a modern, sporty twist on agricultural machinery that is a must-have in the driveway of every redneck!

Imprint

Imprint

Gotta love the latest design from NOCC in this design where concrete meets wood in a simple, yet purposeful modern table/stool combination. Imprint consists of a solid, concrete molded base and a light, polished, wooden piece that fits perfectly over it. Combine them to save space, separate and use as a seating solution for two or as a seat/table combo for one.

Jam Style Swatch

Jam Style Swatch

This modern timepiece concept designed for the Swatch brand uses a familiar functionality to latch on to your wrist. In the same way you’d secure a belt to your waist with a jam-style buckle, simply slide the band through the face and pull to tighten. The functional design makes it possible to get the exact right fit each time. Easy as pie and it looks cool too!

The TUDOR Heritage Collection: Chrono, Advisor & Black Bay

The TUDOR Heritage Collection: Chrono, Advisor & Black Bay

TUDOR imbibes the qualities of precision, dependability and finesses that have transcended it into becoming a watch collection that is a bespoke brand and legendary with folks with an adventurous streak! TUDOR watches have been a part of the Polar exploration team, US Navy’s Submarine expeditions and a constant companion for divers. In 2010 TUDOR launched the Heritage Collection, which includes watches originally designed for such expeditions. The collection now includes the Heritage Chrono, the Heritage Advisor and the Heritage Black Bay.

Concrete Rubbish Bin

Concrete Rubbish Bin

This project is close to home because I have seen small children rag picking and going through dumps of waste, just to salvage what they can and earn a buck. The conditions are unsanitary and even urbanized cities like Mumbai lack the civic sense of dumping waste in bins. Most often plastic garbage bins get vandalized or stolen, so the concrete Toknee makes perfect sense. It won’t get picked and probably encourage people to segregate and recycle trash, making it safer for the rag pickers to scavenge.

And Back To Sammy News

And Back To Sammy News

Thank you Laura and Charles for giving us a fresh perspective on tablets! The Samsung Galaxy One Tablet Projector Concept is a combination of three characteristics from three different devices. It has the lightness and mobility of tablets, the widescreen of desktops backed with the power of a laptop. With the inclusion of a back kick-stand and projector, the device gets additional functionality and of course Windows 8! Superb!

Remember Growing Up

Remember Growing Up

Marking our height on the door frame when we were growing up is a fond memory for many of us, but as time goes by the marks usually get covered up, or people move and forget about them. Sad huh?! The Height Recorder is a thoughtful design that makes it possible to carry the memory with you anywhere. Hang the stick against the wall, placing marks on it each year. When the child is fully grown, the stick can be cut into pieces and made into musical scales like a xylophone!

Crystalline Carafe

Crystalline Carafe

Inspired by one of nature’s wonders, the geode, this carafe design makes for a beautiful and eye-catching water pitcher. Similar to how groundwater moves in a cave to form geodes, the water in the carafe moves along the crystals to create an interesting effect that is sure to be a conversation starter at the dinner table.

The Emperor's Embrace

The Emperor’s Embrace

Embracing Warmth hand warmer is inspired by the maternal instincts of an Emperor Penguin towards its hatchlings. The warmer is an easy egg that radiates sufficient heat to keep your hands warm sans gloves. A general feel-good portable thang for winters, the idea is very akin to warming your hands around a cuppa hot soup! Love it!

Bio Burp!

Bio Burp!

Bio Clean is a dust-buster that converts bio-wastes to energy and uses that power for it’s functioning. Let me explain, we generate a lot of kitchen waste that can be converted to bio-fuel, however majority of us skip this process because we don’t know how to do it. Using this premise, the Bio Clean was designed to convert waste to bio-fuel and operate as a cleaner. The details are sketchy but the logic is sound. I’m curious to see how this idea shapes up.

Look Familiar?

Look Familiar?

If you think you’ve seen Ricardo Marcos’ Quatro chair before, then your eyes aren’t deceiving you. This beautifully crafted chair and footrest combination takes a great amount of inspiration from none other than the ultra-famous 1956 Eames lounge chair. It’s a fabulous, modern twist on the familiar fragment that is sure to be just as timeless.

Urban Campfire

Urban Campfire

We’re all familiar with campfires, but here’s a clever twist on everyone’s favorite camping pastime. Introducing the LampFire! Composed of 3 independent “torches,” it was designed as a way for urban dwellers or beach lovers to enjoy a campfire-like glow from the comfort of the city. Separated, they can be used as flashlights until you reach your destination and combine them to create your LampFire! Now, if only it could roast marshmallows…
