A Moto Disguised

A Moto Disguised

Despite having pedals, the Hydro Bike isn’t really a bicycle at all. This fuel cell-powered transportation features these faux pedals because in a lot of countries it would legally still be considered a bicycle, avoiding the need for a motorcyclists license, road tax, etc.. Thanks to its compact hydrogen power tech, the unibody design is a bit slimmer and stealthier than other powered bikes without sacrificing power for not only its motor but other various components including sleek integrated lights.

This Plug is a Switch!

This Plug is a Switch!

Ideas that enhance functionality are always welcome, and hence the Clack Plug makes its way here. The socket is the switch itself; hence the design compels you to switch off the plug when not in use. Ideal of course is to unplug devices when not in use, but for now the Clack Plug will suffice.

Summers Be Damned

Summers Be Damned

The ‘Aircon+E’ is akin to a fan that uses thermo-element technology, so when it works with electricity, it cools like an air-conditioner. The fan can be charged and used on its integrated battery, hence portable. Basically the personal fan has graduated to a personal air-conditioner on the go!

Chandelier Illusion

Chandelier Illusion

The inspiration behind Jacob Mazor’s Flat Chandelier came from a desire to turn the single hanging bulb in his flat into proper lighting, but having a limited budget that didn’t allow for it. Totally been there! The result is a playful pendant illusion. What it lacks in diffusing the bulb’s brightness, it makes up for in adding character and charm to any interior! Better yet, it’s super-affordable and flat-pack ready. Own it here!
