Little Improvements Go a Long Way

Little Improvements Go a Long Way

The Pick UP marker is a prime example of how sometimes the smallest change can improve a product’s functionality and overall user-friendliness. Instead of lying flat against the whiteboard, the magnetic marker cap is slanted to position the body of the pen at an angle that’s easier to grab. The triangular shape also enhances ergonomics and prevents it from rolling should the marker fall.

Cooking by the Milliliter

Cooking by the Milliliter

The Scale Gas Range integrates a weighing scale within the framework of the cooking range. The idea behind the concept to save your meals from getting burnt! Each recipe has a particular weight when it starts to cook, eventually as the moisture evaporates and the gravy thickens, the weight drops. At this time, if we get distracted with other chores, our dish is sure to burn. To avoid this, after a certain drop in weight, the burner automatically turns off, thus saving the chances of a burnt meal. I think it is a clever idea, especially if you are a new cook!

Better Nursing

Better Nursing

I haven’t seen many nursing bottles redesigned to such finesse as this Angel Mommy Pack. The bottle is ideal for reheating breast milk using a double boiler system and keeping away unnecessary air. Simple and intuitive to use, I’m sure mothers will appreciate this patented design (hint – it should be out soon).

Modern Stackable Stool

Modern Stackable Stool

I’m loving the Totem stool series by Sydney based design studio Anaesthetic! Each stool features a pyramid shaped indention that allows them to be stacked one on top of the other, creating a practical storage solution that also serves as a unique sculptural element. Lightweight, durable, and waterproof they are great for indoor or outdoor use and can be filled with sand or water for a more permanent seating solution or a stable surface for a table-top, footrest, or any other purpose imaginable.

Hubless Wonder

Hubless Wonder

Miroslav Hundak’s FB R2000S concept is loosely based on the BMW R1200S, a Boxer model renowned for sporting performance and dynamic riding characteristics. The athletic look of the FB R2000S is contrasted with a particular touch of lightness in the form of not 2, but 3 hubless wheels with independent suspension and minimal fairings that in combination simply exude power and dynamism. Engineers will have their rightful criticisms, but there’s no denying that it looks fun to ride! Hit the jump for a sweet vid!

Moto Chair

Moto Chair

Just when you had gotten used to straddling the motorcycle seat- now you’ve gotta switch to sitting in a big comfy chair!? What a pain in the ass! OK – so that’s not an actual problem… but if it was this would be the solution! More aesthetically charming than practical, the Biker Chair reinterprets the seating position on a bike to a woven leather chair that’s sure to be a conversation starter.

Spin Doctor

Spin Doctor

No relation to the band, but this groovy headphone is interactive and allows you to play with your music. It features a 4-axis-directional button on one side; this is to pick the samples available on the SD card. The other side features a rotatable part to scratch your MP3 on the go!

I’m a mobile DJ now!

Skeletal Screen-Wall

Skeletal Screen-Wall

Because they usually come in limited sizes, finding the right room divider can be tricky. Ferma, however, provides a simple, customizable solution in the form of a modular system consisting of thin circular sections & connecting elements. The concept allows the user to construct the screen in an unlimited combination of sizes & shapes – from small to large. Though the construction is minimal, the structure is strong enough to support other furniture elements like shelving or a glass top. Great for defining spaces in contemporary & classic environments alike.

Repurposing the Reusable Grocery Bags

Repurposing the Reusable Grocery Bags

Even though my intentions are good, I’m guilty of being one of those people who takes the reusable grocery shopping bag only to never use it again! It usually ends up stuffed under sink or in a closet. This design aims to ensure the bag is reused in an entirely different way. It’s just rigid enough to carry your groceries home and then use it as a garbage bin. Stackable and available in a number of different colors, it’s an effortless way to reduce plastic consumption.

Alternative Mobility for Rehabilitation

Alternative Mobility for Rehabilitation

The Synchronic Walking Assistant is the result of various, subjective technological interpretations of the anatomical & physiological archetype of the human stride as well as the desire to create an entirely new mode of assistance. The device’s synchronized movement makes it possible to establish permanent assistance in a comfortable position while offering individual adjustment to each user’s unique needs whether it be physical therapy or simply added stability.

Eggs Anywhere

Eggs Anywhere

The ultra-portable Heater Egg Card utilizes a wire-web and thin skin that envelops the egg to reduce heating time. The casing can then be “smooshed” together to make it as thin as a credit card. Small enough to take anywhere in your wallet, purse, or other compact carrier.

Every Bathroom Needs This

Every Bathroom Needs This

What good is a Roca or a Reece designed bathroom if it isn’t fitted with futuristic gadgets that compliment their elegance! I’m talking about the Breeze Rack – an appropriate towel rack, hair dryer, bathroom ventilator and sterilizer! The device can be used to ventilate the room by circulating air, as a towel rail and can even dry and sanitize towels. The hair dryer detaches from one end of the rack, making it the perfect bathroom device. I want one NOW!
