Tree Friendly City

Tree Friendly City

As urban areas grow, so does the need to keep the soil underneath pavement and concrete hydrated for trees that line our city streets and sidewalks. This large-scale redesign features  walkways with grooves that direct water to strategically placed drains that carry water directly to the vegetation’s roots. A system of deep gutters also feeds rainfall directly to the soil surrounding trees placed at the same level as the lowest part of the gutter.

For The Love of Boarding

For The Love of Boarding

The MOXTER kitelandboard features latest technical developments of all board sports combined. The deck is crafted out of a cnc-milled ash-core coated with glass- and carbon fabric. Chis explains, ‘This build-up strategy reduces 20% of the weight while giving the potential to design a 3D shaped board that combines two technically disparate requirements of kitelandboarding: flex and stiffness.’ The hole in the middle of the board looks good but is there for a reason, it increases the flex of the board to absorb the energy after a big jump.

Simply pour the liquor in a pan or a plate, press the button to ignite the fire, and then remove it when the flame turns off. Exciting!

Twist and Clean

Twist and Clean

The Hula Washer promises to keep you fit and svelte as you wash your clothes. Not only do you save time and money, but the concept also keeps your waistline under control. The energy you use to spin the Hula Washer, like a Hula Hoop is used to clean the clothes loaded into the washer segment. Add clothes and washing liquid to the hollow centre of the ring and then start to spin. The only thing problem I see it that it looks convenient for small clothes like socks and hankies, nothing more.

The Koeda Effect

The Koeda Effect

Mixer tap designs are typical and stereotyped and we are basically programmed to use them in a particular way. More like up and down is on and off, and turning the mixer from left to right will change from hot to cold. Not that this is a bad thing, but imagine a redefined shape, a new intuitive adoption of operations…we have done that in the tech world, can we do that in Bathroom Innovations?
