Break The Cooking ICE

Break The Cooking ICE

ICE is the mix of a lamp, mood lighting and recipe database that can assist in making your cooking and dining experience even more delightful. The theme for this year’s Electrolux Design Lab was to create appliances that enhance your cooking experience by livening your senses. The ICE adheres to this in many ways.

Deceptively Simple

Deceptively Simple

The unique construction of the Ane stool gives the illusion of intricate complexity, but don’t be fooled… the multiple solid timber pieces are actually all of one shape positioned and cut in a dynamic way that makes them look significantly different. Individual pieces appear to float on its powder coated black or white steel frame, enhancing its striking aesthetic as well as its structural integrity.

Autonomous Water Resource

Autonomous Water Resource

Inspired by the natural occurrence of water condensing onto leaves, the Leaf system uses the same principle to collect dew before filtering and turning it into usable water. A solar powered thermoregulator ensures the surface temp is always below the dewpoint of the surrounding air, triggering drops to form and slide into the carbon/sand filtering layers located in the “stem.” Depending on humidity, the unit can collect up to 15 liters of water every day!

Private Fighter

Private Fighter

The Dassault Falcon S applies supersonic fighter aircraft philosophies to the executive jet, combining long range transatlantic capability and speed to the comfort of a wide body, high altitude aircraft. Marked by impeccable, angular symmetries, the overall aesthetic is at once futuristic, refined and discreet. I’ll take mine in chrome, please.

Musical Dinner

Musical Dinner

Imagine a future where food is inspired by music. I am talking about the SmartPlate, a dish that understands food and transforms it into sound. As described by Julian, it completes the circle of senses by which we understand what we eat. The plate hookes up wirelessly to your mobile device, and then by measuring the different aspects of your ingredients, it identifies food. It then precisely attaches musical notes, harmonies and rhythm to each ingredient.

Fingering The Coffee

Fingering The Coffee

I am always fascinated with the different coffee packaging that keeps popping up. This time around we have a finger-cover design that folds inside out. Basically you can use the package itself to stir the coffee, once you have poured out the mix. It looks into hygiene, eco-friendliness and productiveness in a resourceful way.

Screwless Glueless Wonder

Screwless Glueless Wonder

Inspired by the painter’s easel, this bare-bones task lamp is composed of little more than a mirrored, Y-shaped frame supporting a socket, bulb and shade. With the shade held in place by the bulb and on/off functionality built into the cord, the design doesn’t require adhesives or screws to keep everything in place. A perfect minimal accent to your desktop!

Beautiful Blend

Beautiful Blend

Just as the name suggests, the Wood-con-fusion table fuses wood, veneer and formica leftovers that are literally collected off the floor of local carpentry studios. Each table begins its life as a seemingly useless pile of scrap before fragments are pressed and processed into sheets used to create unique one-off pieces that are sustainable, über-functional, and downright pretty.

Leftover Refrigerator

Leftover Refrigerator

The Impress Refrigerator has an intriguing way of storing food. It holds containers or bottles in such a way that you can never forget that you have placed them there. It consumes lesser power when fewer items are placed, thus conserving energy. The open interface makes it easy for you to access the food and also never forget about them!

The Fly Phone

The Fly Phone

FlyIdea is an amazing phone that features an alluring interface. I simply love the dongle-earphone that performs a myriad of functions. The dongle essential functions as wireless earphone, and syncs with the phone to work as a camera, gaming sensor, music controller and video recorder. Both the earphone and phone work independently and together. The concept offers an innovative way of using the phone with the added functionality of the earphones dongle.

Raw But Refined Lighting

Raw But Refined Lighting

Gotta love the modern Plank light fixture by Northern Lighting of Norway. The design transforms the ordinary wood plank into a thin, long and simplistic pendant that produces a directed glow that appears generated from the center. In light poplar or darker Southern yellow pine, it’s the perfect pendant for bringing a little rustic to modern spaces or modern to rustic spaces!

Segway of the Sea

Segway of the Sea

The Stingray is a single-rider watercraft designed for both recreational and humanitarian uses. The buoyant saddle and lever combination is driven by a pneumatic propulsion system that converts user generated energy into air flow, transmitting thrust directly into the water without the use of gears or electric circuits. Useful as a mobile flotation device for flood disasters or simply to enjoy a day out on the water!

Nube Ain't No Noob

Nube Ain’t No Noob

Using modular pieces, the well-thought Nube coffee table offers a solution for both large scale production and personal customization. By focusing on the repetitive use of a single component, the unique base is easily constructed to size specification, yet maintains an organic and fluid shape not often found in other modular designs. Furthermore, the versatile design of the base means it can be flipped upside down for an entirely new aesthetic that functions just the same!
