Modern Light Flower

Modern Light Flower

Inspired by the elegant shape of a flower’s petals, the PETAL lamp is a minimalist take on the curved, open form that reveals a bright LED at its center. Bright light radiates from the bottom upward through a frosted glass piece and aluminum sheet which effectively disperse ambient light evenly throughout the living environment. It’s an ultramodern design with classic inspiration!

Boring Chair Gets A Fabulous Makeover

Boring Chair Gets A Fabulous Makeover

Fashion’s purpose? My peers would tell me it’s about monetizing trends. My teachers would tell me it’s a clever tool that provides social commentary. Some proclaimed fashion to be art. Drawing some distinction between clothing which is utilitarian and fashion which is design, the common thread is change and designer Jung Eunyoung illustrates that so well with her steel mesh chair. Simply by changing its cover, the chair takes on a new persona, similar to how one changes clothes to project their moods, needs, and wants.

Destroying Violence Through Peace

Destroying Violence Through Peace

The grenade, revolver and the nunchucks are instruments of violence and destruction. Playing on the maxim of the pen being mightier than the sword, a selection of notebooks bearing this symbolic gesture encourages us to convert violence to a tool of peace. Our creativity and knowledge expressed through words and sketches are the best means to get our points across, not through force and/or violence.

Immacuate Extension

Immacuate Extension

HECHEK is an electrical outlet extension which offers a simple solution to the problem of cumbersome cords. The outlet base features 3 independently rotating sockets that together form a triangle that’s perfect for wrapping excess cord around. As an added safety feature, each socket remains closed until it is rotated 90 degrees to unlock with green/red lights indicating status. Until wireless charging technology takes over, it’s a great solution for keeping things tidy.

Bright lights for projector-friendly bike lovers

Bright lights for projector-friendly bike lovers

It’s time to get in the laser-projector zone with none other than a design by the name of “Bike Zone”, complete with red beams for signaling. If you want to turn left, this beast of a light shines several arrow-looking symbols down at the ground to the left – the same is true of the right – imagine that! The only ones we worry for now are the squirrels – watch your eyes, guys!

TouchOfModern Gives Seven Reasons To Make You Smile

TouchOfModern Gives Seven Reasons To Make You Smile

Traditionally, Indians don’t exchange sharp objects (like knives, forks etc.) as gifts because it’s a symbol of discord. However recently I was gifted a beautiful knife; the only difference was that there was an emotional story and message attached to the gift, making it impossible for me to do anything else but accept with humility, grace and honor. Such is the power of giving from the heart. This festive season TouchOfModern has a special lineup to make the art of giving as special as possible.

Weeble broom wobbles but it wont fall down

Weeble broom wobbles but it wont fall down

There’s a design for a broom and dustpan out there that brings the two together in a way that not only keeps them one unit, but keeps them sitting upright as well. While a standard broom and dustpan require you to stand them up against a wall or they’ll go horizontal, the “Roly-poly Cleaner” by designer Salih Berk Ilhan [UPDATED!] is able to sit up without assistance.

Playful Bakeware

Playful Bakeware

The Flexy series of cake pans offer a unique twist on the generic round and square bakeware you can find in any grocery store. Mold each one to your liking for a more personal touch that will stand out from the rest. Designer Simon Michel states that the bakeware is composed of food-safe plastic, but that might need a lil tweaking considering the material’s low melting point. Other than that, it’s an interesting idea for designer-cooking at home!
