The Modern Man's Razor

The Modern Man’s Razor

The Möbius Shaver, inspired by the unique qualities of the möbius strip, is a unique take on the simple razor that is as puzzling as it is visually stunning. The 1mm stainless steel handle forms a continues band that half-twists at the end to create tension and increased sturdiness. Though it’s an altered form of the common razor, it’s just as ergonomic.

Gyroscopic Transportation of the Future

Gyroscopic Transportation of the Future

This futuristic transportation concept was designed for the urban commuter looking for an entirely new and unique driving experience. With just two wheels, the glass-dome cabin is self-balancing and can be controlled with a joystick instead of a steering wheel. You might say it’s kinda like the auto (and much cooler) version of a Segway!

Leafy Faucet

Leafy Faucet

Linfa is a range of electronic faucets that includes several models for washbasin, bath and shower. The main body is from chromed brass featuring an organically shaped component made in corian. The fusion of the two creates an essentially elegant design that celebrates the natural flow of water. Inspired by waterfalls and leaves, the faucet is perfect as luxury fitting. The tech advantage of an electronic mixing device and remote controls makes it all the more alluring!

Robots, Drones, & Nukes... Oh My!

Robots, Drones, & Nukes… Oh My!

Before things get politcal- these are not real-life proposals for modern weapons! They’re the latest artistic concepts from Alp Germaner that might make their way into your favorite video game one day. On second thought, I do wish the chopper was real!

Modern Meets Vintage

Modern Meets Vintage

A part of the “Successful Living” collection by the Diesel Creative Team, the floor and pendant Cage lamps reflect both modern pop culture and vintage style influences. Smooth, bright colored shades contrast with dark, heavy-duty wire, making it an aesthetically sensible choice for both contemporary settings and industrial spaces alike.

Not Your Granny's Kettle

Not Your Granny’s Kettle

The word ‘kettle’ itself has a sort of antiquated, old-school ring to it, doesn’t it? With this in mind, designer Felipe Arnador redesigned the classic Braun brand kettle to appeal to the younger user. Its sleek appearance is made possible by a double surface layer that produces a vacuum between the interior and exterior, keeping the user’s hand safe from heat and eliminating the need for a handle.

Minimal Twist on the Hubless

Minimal Twist on the Hubless

If you can look past the hubless wheels, you’ll appreciate the fine symmetry behind this design- the Twist Bike. The unique gearing system allows each component to be easily removed for storage, repair, or transporting. The design is also capable of linking with other Twists to create a tandem network of bikes.

Clever Handlebars

Clever Handlebars

The Glo-Bars is a very clever handlebar system that integrates rechargeable LED lights to the bars of the cycle. These lights not only illuminate the track for the cyclist but also make them visible to oncoming traffic. The lights double up as turn signal indicators and also emit red light for traffic behind the cyclist. By simply customizing the handles, we have a safer cycling system in place!

The Four Concept

The Four Concept

Four is a very stylized multi-touch AMOLED device that hangs on your wall, providing pretty pictures and sounds with a dash of functionality. The 145 x 235 mm device brings you weather forecasts, natural ambience, travel planning facilities and more. It is not a tablet or an attempt to put an iPad-esque clone on the wall, but an attempt to make the digitalized Mona Lisa on your wall do something more for you!

Dream Beemer

Dream Beemer

Inspired by the artistic and structural works of Santiago Calatrava, the BMW i-FD bridges the ultimate driving machine’s fine-tuned engineering with a dynamic and fresh aesthetic. Aggressive, shark-like lines add a futuristic touch, but the overall design is a realistic and elegant take on what future Beemers might look like.

The Mantis Chair

The Mantis Chair

Wildetect’s Mantis Chair takes inspiration from the African wilderness, adopting the form of one of its iconic creatures, the giant praying mantis. Admittedly, a certain level of comfort was sacrificed in the design, but its wild, sculptural aesthetic ensures it to be the primary focal point of any room.

Abstraction of Form

Abstraction of Form

The simple, yet striking Ariva furniture series is an example of neoplasticism in its purest form. Each piece avoids symmetry and attains aesthetic balance by the use of opposition. The designs play with the geometry of the straight line, square and rectangle combined with strong asymmetricality to skew the viewer’s perception. From the side, each piece is slender and skeletal, but from the front appears thick and robust. In pure white, the series is as refined as it is peculiar.
