Better Respiration

Better Respiration

According to research not many scientists and designers care about the kind of respirators they wear while working with chemicals and such materials. Their filters rarely get replaced and many users don’t even know how to replace them! KOMRAD is a respirator design that looks at solving these issues amongst a host of others. Designed to seal better, be portable and user friendly, the designer makes an interesting point with his concept. Have a look…

The Circle Printer

The Circle Printer

One of the most annoying computer peripheral on anyone’s desk is the printer. It’s noisy, it vibrates and it takes up so much space! Which is why I’m all for innovations that look at minimizing size without losing functionality. ‘Circle’ is one such attempt that has impressed me. One look and you won’t even realize that it’s a printer, looks more like humidifier or a fancy pot. Wish that manufacturers would look in this direction too; HP are you listening?

Flat-Pack Elegance

Flat-Pack Elegance

To keep production costs to a minimum, the Nort table is constructed from a single, planar kit derived from the same 1.5cm thick ash wood board. You’d never know by looking at it, but the flat-pack design can be constructed in seconds by simply sliding supporting pieces in their designated slots. Complimenting the warm ash is a center-placed ceramic disk that provides a finishing touch of refinement. Hit the jump to see the video teaser!

Why Don’t We Have Iron Boards Like This!

Why Don’t We Have Iron Boards Like This!

E-Board is super classy and I love it! The ironing board has five components that adhere and adapt to the garment that you are ironing. A controlling green knob allows you to split the board up for easy ironing of pants and wings out the sides for sleeves. Skirts, coats, trousers, shirts or any other thang, basically the board makes the mundane chore of ironing a whole lot easy. Clever integration of a hanger-stand and iron-stand, adds to the perks. Love!

Modern Confessions

Modern Confessions

Confession is a clever statement on modern interpersonal communication and the sometimes hard-to-find privacy in the late trend of open spaces found in contemporary architecture. This new furniture archetype aims to create a secluded space for private conversation, quiet environment for reading, or somewhere to indulge in a little gossip! Above all else, it’s a reminder of how our man-made environments can really shape the way we interact.

Cultivate a Green Habit

Cultivate a Green Habit

There is no doubt that visual representation has a greater impact than some random numbers. So if I can see how much extra power my sub-standard air conditioner is consuming in comparison to a graded one, I’m more inclined to get it changed or restrict its usage. Likewise with other appliances and gadgets. Eco,Pulse is a great visual tool that educates you on your power consumptions and energy wastages. The goal is to help you reduce your carbon footprint and build energy efficient home. Something we should all consider, given our depleting resources.
