Why Don’t We Have Iron Boards Like This!

Why Don’t We Have Iron Boards Like This!

E-Board is super classy and I love it! The ironing board has five components that adhere and adapt to the garment that you are ironing. A controlling green knob allows you to split the board up for easy ironing of pants and wings out the sides for sleeves. Skirts, coats, trousers, shirts or any other thang, basically the board makes the mundane chore of ironing a whole lot easy. Clever integration of a hanger-stand and iron-stand, adds to the perks. Love!

Natural Water Flow

Natural Water Flow

PURE is designed as an elegant touch-sensitive leaf faucet that flows out the exact amount of water you need, thus eliminating wastage. As Dax explains, “A sensitive interaction with the product accurately controls the amount of water requested, reducing unwanted overflow and the related waste of drinkable water.” Basically the design works with hand manipulation and sensor interpretations, making the user experience quite intuitive.

Modern Confessions

Modern Confessions

Confession is a clever statement on modern interpersonal communication and the sometimes hard-to-find privacy in the late trend of open spaces found in contemporary architecture. This new furniture archetype aims to create a secluded space for private conversation, quiet environment for reading, or somewhere to indulge in a little gossip! Above all else, it’s a reminder of how our man-made environments can really shape the way we interact.

Cultivate a Green Habit

Cultivate a Green Habit

There is no doubt that visual representation has a greater impact than some random numbers. So if I can see how much extra power my sub-standard air conditioner is consuming in comparison to a graded one, I’m more inclined to get it changed or restrict its usage. Likewise with other appliances and gadgets. Eco,Pulse is a great visual tool that educates you on your power consumptions and energy wastages. The goal is to help you reduce your carbon footprint and build energy efficient home. Something we should all consider, given our depleting resources.

Sure to be a timeless piece for both the classic craftsman and modern loft alike.

Concrete Beauty

Concrete Beauty

Situation on the west coast of the Baltic island of Öland, Villa Widlund stands out as a solid white, geometric, concrete landmark in perfect contrast with a backdrop of picturesque ocean views and serene beach landscapes. Construction and furnishings are minimal so that each room highlights the windows and spectacular outdoor views. Everything about this modern beach villa is dreamy – I’d have trouble deciding to be in or out!

Audio Globe

Audio Globe

Designed to rotate on a 23.4 degree slanted axis like the globe, DORA CD Player grabs your attention with its clever gimmick design. This could have been another drab rectangular gadget, meant to seduce you with textures and colors, but thankfully it isn’t! The CD loads into the back panel, while the speakers are placed in the front. I love the catchy remote that accompanies this player; spin my world right round, like a record…..

Yes, Another Socket

Yes, Another Socket

Search for “Socket” on Yanko Design and you will be hit by countless designs, making you wonder why is this component so important in our lives. If it’s not the socket per-se, then it’s the plugs that most designers are worried about. Adding to the list is the Live Socket, an iteration that takes away the bother of pulling the plug once we are done with an appliance. Child safe and energy friendly, this design is clever and practical too!
