Convenient Bottle

Convenient Bottle

Convenient Cavity is a shampoo bottle redesign that allows you to pump out the liquid with one hand. The cavity provides and easy grip plus doubles up as a spot to hang the bottle from. And because of the emptiness in between, the pump’s pipe fits in the bottle at a slant, enabling you to extract all the liquid. Good for shampoo and any kinda liquid suds, if you ask me!

Trees & Fairytales

Trees & Fairytales

Gotta love the Tree Bookcase by Roberto Corazza! It breaks the monotony of classic horizontal shelving and provides a whimsical touch of fantasy when it comes to storing your books. Open on both the front and back sides, the single-cast, plastic case can be affixed to the wall or stand freely in the center of a room with accessibility from both sides.

Really Really Smart – Part Two

Really Really Smart – Part Two

Looking for the perfect marriage between a digital scale, measuring cup and a mixing bowl? Your search ends with this awesome SmartMix! A notch up from the SmartMeasure Cup, this mixing bowl allows you to add and weigh ingredients both by volume and by weight, while preparing the recipe. The scale allows you to convert between the most common units, and tip in the elements with accuracy. Best of all, you can detach the bowl for easy cleaning and stow it separately. Superb!

I love the obvious inspiration behind this one-of-a-kind lamp design by Michael Samoriz. The Microscope LED Lamp aims to inspire designers, artists and other creatives to view their desk not merely as a desk, but as a laboratory where they can experiment with imagination.

Perfectly Warmed Bath

Perfectly Warmed Bath

When you are in for a long soak, the cycle of water turning from comfortably warm to tepid to cold is frustrating. On rare occasions I indulge in draining out some cold and refilling with the warm water. But my eco-conscious mind chides me for it! Anyways, Warm On pebbles look to resolve this problem innovatively. The pebbles are sensor-fitted heat-radiating artificial stones that maintain the water temperature for a set duration. So from start to finish you can have the same water temperature without any guilt. Awesome!

DIY Postcards

DIY Postcards

I love the fact that we can setup our own photo printing system at home and get creative with it. However there is the limitation of routing the pictures via a computer and then printing them. The Postcards Printer eliminates this step; it doubles up as a digital photo frame and a printer. Creating excusive postcards for posting or just plain photos, both options look awesome with it.

The Plug Lamp

The Plug Lamp

Doesn’t it seem like it’s impossible to find an open outlet when you need one?! The Plug Lamp provides a clever (and cute) solution to this problem by incorporating an outlet into the base so power is always handy!
