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

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.

A Very James Bond Jacket

A Very James Bond Jacket

Have you ever ruined a movie, an interview, or maybe even a sexy date because you forgot to turn your phone off? If so, then you’ll appreciate this clever design called the Escape Jacket by Victor Johansson! The inner lining applies the interference principles of a Faradays cage to effectively block all radio frequencies, disabling the antenna so the phone doesn’t go off while simultaneously saving the battery. Just slide it in the inner pocket and fuggeddaboudit!
