The Two-in-One Team

Love this simple and functional induction cooker called Two any One. Basically it’s an indoor induction cook top with cooking plates that detach and fold up for portability. They rely on an in built-charging mechanism; hence you don’t power out or need cords when using it outdoors. How cool is that!

Home-Grown Lighting

Home-Grown Lighting

The latest in a trend of garden & light combinations, the Aura lamp is an experiment in interactive objects that combines nature, water & light in a unique design that strengthens the bond between object & user by changing color with a simple touch of the plant’s leaves. The system uses an aluminum base with LED RGB modules that shine through the glass container. By touching the plant the user grounds the system & activates color changes, power & light intensity.

Inverted Illumination

Inverted Illumination

Unlike most desk lamp designs with shades that open in the direction of the light, the Flower Barb features a combination of sleek plates that extend backward from the apex. At the center point is a focused LED that’s perfect for working under. The result is a sort of floral aesthetic with a surprising, directional light; however, I’d love to see the 4 plates able to be adjusted in the opposite direction so the user can switch between ambient glow and focused light.

Tangible Text

Tangible Text

The Typo furniture collection brings typography to the third dimension in a humorous and articulate series of tables and chairs. Each monocoque structure is made of methacrylate, making it extremely resistant and durable as well as 100% recyclable. The clever collection looks great in a modern living room or as a learning tool in a child’s playroom!

BlackBerry Windows Phone Pro

BlackBerry Windows Phone Pro

We all know that BlackBerry needs to either hitch a ride with someone like Microsoft or come out with a smashing BB OS 10. If we take on the first scenario and pair BB with Microsoft, then RIM’s baby is a magnificent Windows Phone Pro, which has the possibility of including all things good from BB tools and MS Office apps. The potential of the BlackBerry Wind concept sounds too good, imagine the ultimate professional phone bearing the security and agility of BlackBerry along with the competence of MS Office.

For The Seven Dwarfs

For The Seven Dwarfs

For some odd reason the seven dwarfs used to go mining at night and I reckon they could put this Light Shovel to good use! Jokes aside, I think it is a clever idea to integrate lighting into the shovel stick. It could come in handy in mines or when for you have to use it at night. Plus if we can get it to somehow trap kinetic energy and put it to some use, it would be great! For now the concept looks it can be tweaked and toyed upon.

Though it’s quite simple, the Elagone lamp is remarkably versatile. An ultra-thin LED strip lines the inner core, diffusing the bright light into a warm, subtle glow that’s reflected off its solid oak surface. The design can be positioned upright or horizontal and turned to achieve the desired effect. It’s inconspicuous, organic aesthetic make it a functional accessory to any desktop.

Metro for Dummies

Metro for Dummies

From the outside, the New Generation Light Rail might seem like a straightforward tram design, but what sets it apart are a few thoughtful features that are surprisingly not already in use by existing models. The design uses bold, universally recognizable visual cues like red/green lighting around the doors to indicate times to enter and exit and large wheelchair/bicycle graphics to indicate dedicated areas. It makes getting around easier and safer even if riders aren’t familiar with the language or procedures.

Nike Trois

Nike Trois

The Nike Trois collection of concept triathlon gear aims to streamline the process of changing from running shoe to biking shoe to cut down on course times. Both shoes were designed with a smart lace-and-strap system that can be set and tightened to the competitor’s preference before they put them on, so that when they arrive they can be slipped on quickly without adjustment. The trio of speed-suit, bike shoe and running shoe are aesthetically cohesive and fit snuggly into a matching compartmentalized backpack.

When Time is Safely Encapsulated

When Time is Safely Encapsulated

Safe Time is a concept watch that features a massive stainless steel case and a circular dial with titanium axis. Sharp milling and strictly functional (logic) design, are the key elements to the concept. Apparently the dials rotate instead of the hours and minutes hands; and this is how the time is displayed and read. The LED back-lit dials help in time reading. An exquisite design that redefines time telling!

Music Everywhere

Music Everywhere

Although earbuds are very convenient when on the go, somehow I prefer not to wear them while driving or riding my bike. I get the feel that blocking out essential noises, especially when cycling can be detrimental. Something like this Portable Speaker Design for Cycles is what I’d love to use instead. They look sleek and have an easy way to fit in. Love their simple looks and easy access to controls. Way to go!

Stark Street Lamp

Stark Street Lamp

This LED street lamp design is centered around 3 compact, flat, versatile LED modules that have a minimal impact on the visible skyline. The modules can be raised and lowered depending on necessity and are easily replaceable for quick maintenance. The minimal design is a nice alternative to today’s dull street lamp styles and is applicable to a variety of installations from sidewalks to racetracks.
