External Smart Memory

External Smart Memory

The MyDesk concept is essentially broken down into two components where My is an external memory-smartphone with apps that keep you connected with any kinda computer. When slipped into the Desk component, the device transforms into a Tablet PC or Notebook, depending upon what you need it to be! What makes it stand apart is the attempt to make it energy efficient with a solar recharging panel on it’s back. I only hope that we can detach the panel…like a laptop skin and clamp it back on after its fully juiced up!

Handy Lamp(s)

We’re constantly trying to hide wires, cables and plugs, but this modular system of lighting by zwei21 really owns its construction. It features attractive, colorful, textile cables, plugs, lampshades and joints that can be combined and placed in a variety of combinations to suit the user’s taste and need. Up to 3 cables can be connected to each joint for additional light. It’s a great solution for reading, working or subtle accent lighting.

Fitness Furniture

Fitness Furniture

In the modern world, the average working person sits almost 10 hours per day! It seems a bit unnatural doesn’t it? It’s no wonder that the latest trend in furniture is seating that aims to work your body while you’re at work. The Jopple is one example that forces the user to maintain balance while seated so they maintain a tight core. The design’s cushions also fold out to form a workout pad where the user can do crunches or stretch. If only it would yell at you when you’re being lazy!

iPad Sound Prism

iPad Sound Prism

The Sound Prism is an ultra-portable speaker unit designed specifically for use with iPad (though it will sync with any other Bluetooth audio device). The unit magnetically attaches and rolls up inside the iPad smart cover, offering enhanced stability when the iPad is placed upright and crystal clear audio emerging from both sides. Genius!

Illuminating Memory Pins

Illuminating Memory Pins

Love the ambient effect these ‘Light Up Your Memories’ drawing pin conjure. I can imagine them being handed out as party favors, or being conversation starters. Moreover they do the job of highlighting a particular picture or note quite effectively!

The Outdoor Kitchen

The Outdoor Kitchen

N1 Kitchen System is intended for the outdoors but can be fitted into a compact home. The whole unit just shuts-shop and fits into a storage container for easy transportation. The kitchen features the three basic elements – the sink and prep area, the storage unit and the stove system; keeping it really simple and bare.

The latest collection of lighting by Ozone has all the refinement you’d expect from the Parisian design team. The designs vary greatly from one piece to the next but they all exhibit a reduced yet sophisticated aesthetic that fits perfectly in minimal environments and classic settings alike. Each is sure to be a focal point of any room it’s in.

Marina Living Done Right

Marina Living Done Right

Not so much a yacht as it is a floating home, the Rieul-Useful provides luxurious accommodations from the comfort of the marina. The second floor consists of two bedrooms, an entertainment lounge and complete kitchen but the really special part is what’s underneath- the S-shaped design features a private dock on the first floor with space for a single hull yacht up to 15m long, giving yacht owners access to their own private amenities versus sharing facilities with a large yacht community.

Guessing Game #11

Guessing Game #11

What do you think this is? Hmmm, if you guessed it as a lock of some sorts, then I’ll hand it you; you’re pretty close. All I can say, it holds a ton of information….literally! All the best!

Getting Techie Onsite

Getting Techie Onsite

SoftSheet is a device aimed at making presentations of blueprints by architects, engineers, contractors and site workers, easy. While tablets do offer a degree of convenience, SoftSheet takes the screening a notch higher by taking advantage of a foldable, touchsensitive, transparent display. The technology is almost here, so it is quite plausible to imagine an architect showing his work to clients using the device and syncing his files from his USB or smartphone backup.

One Foot in Front of Another

One Foot in Front of Another

The Walking Chair (not to be confused with a walker!) aims to make a parallel between the acts of walking and resting. The chair’s clever leg positioning achieves a visual sensation that the chair is frozen in movement. It really looks caught in mid-dance!

Soft Comfort

Soft Comfort

The latest collection from d-vision leaves little to be desired. Whatever your specific taste may be, the eclectic series is sure to have a design that speaks to you. Ranging from a cushy chair that folds into a box to a modern tuffet-style stool, they all share a common, subtle nod to classic furniture inspirations.
