The Tor of Pizza

The Tor of Pizza

It takes to be on the other side of the fence to understand the importance of piping hot food. I work from home so I never have to face the challenge of eating a rubbery pizza just because it went cold during lunch delivery. Maybe this is why the Tower Food Warmer focuses on meals like pizza along with healthy options like salad for keeping warm and fresh. The design takes into consideration a clever locking system so that the food compartments don’t open hastily and thus create a mess.

Close, But Not What You Might Think

Close, But Not What You Might Think

Folderfolder takes inspiration from the universally recognizable symbol of organization, the file folder. While most folders are made of dispensable stock paper, the design stands out in leather with an elegant stitch border, indicating its special use. It opens to reveal blank note pages and a nifty pocket for storing other documents and also features an open loop at the tab for keeping a pen handy. It’s easy to refill and durable enough that you’ll keep it forever.

Furniture for Plants

Furniture for Plants

The inspiration behind the O furniture series came from our human tendency to sporadically place plants and pots at home and was crafted with a top surface perfect for containing these plants. The shallow, sunken top is lined with handcrafted ceramic vessels of different size, balancing and softening the rigid geometry of the console and credenza. Maybe you’re not a fan of indoor plants- the unique structure offers an unusual way of storing a multitude of items from books to knick knacks.

The Computer Phone Is Here

The Computer Phone Is Here

What I like about the TPM VIPNI Concept P.C.P. Professional Computer Phone is that the concept is not ‘inspired’ by any existing design. Moreover it features components and aspects that are envisioned with existing and available technologies. Essentially this means you can build this powerhouse of a Pocket Computer Phone, right away!

Bowlgami

Bowlgami

You don’t usually think of the most basic of items as having potential or the necessity of being modular (especially when it’s something as simple as a bowl) but here’s a design that works. Inspired by a type of origami that uses a modular system to create various, infinite forms, the Modular Bowl can be customized to any size simply by combining triangular units. Perfect for modern spaces, the multifaceted segments create a striking geometric visual that’s distinct from other platters and presentation bowls.

1-Click Theft Protection

1-Click Theft Protection

The One Click Clothing Security Tag aims to make securing & removing tags a simpler process to speed up times at store stocking & customer checkout. The design features a single twin shot injection-molded clip that allows it to be attached or removed using a single hand movement. The large bundle of tags can also be clipped onto a rack rather than thrown into a bin for quick movement around the stock handling area of the store. The higher efficiency design ensures more thorough processing & security for a retailer’s valuable items.

Jellyfish Ahoy!

Jellyfish Ahoy!

I remember gazing at the jellyfish with utter amazement in Hong Kong’s Ocean Park aquarium. Little did I know that their sting can be so painful and apparently some species’ sting can actually prove fatal for humans! I love the ocean and shudder to think how would it feel to get stung. The Ocean Guard is a series of buoys that use ultra-low frequency sound waves to prevent jellyfish from entering certain areas. It is a safer way to keep them at bay, without harming them. Peaceful co-existence I suppose.

Music In My Control

Music In My Control

The MusixCube is a hand-held controlling device for a given piece of digital music production software. It is meant for stuff like Ableton Live, Logic, etc. and combines several hardware items, like drum computers and other MIDI controllers. The aim of the project is to keep the music creators away from the computer and literally give them controls in their hands. Interaction between the device and music creating apps is based on the Rubik’s Tower.
