EcoCool

EcoCool

The EcoCool system was designed to filter and reuse grey water to cool interior spaces and hydrate the planter at the bottom of the unit. Before being deposited in the planter, water passes through a series of filters disguised as wall tiles that are filled with a filtering mixture of sand and marble. The solution simultaneously cools the air while bringing awareness to water consumption in a visible and memorable way.

Four Dimensions of Time

Four Dimensions of Time

The latest in a trend of automotive-inspired timepieces, the Quad concept takes from the design language of the detailed headlamps found in the new Porsche Panamera. Time telling is divided into 4 orbs that each display an isolated subset of time in days, hours, minutes and seconds. With an aesthetic that aims for the sporty side of the luxury-watch market, the Quad hits the mark.

The Power of Being Compact

The Power of Being Compact

The Extendable is a lifeboat that is kinda flat packed and can be stored at convenient spots on a big boat. The idea is to have an inflatable boat handy and yet remain unobtrusive on the deck. Clever design that can get into production, provided the necessary tweaks are incorporated!

Dry in a Jiffy

Dry in a Jiffy

The SecO clothes dryer bridges the gap between large tumble dryers and clothing lines in an intuitive appliance that’s no bigger than a coat rack. It uses long wave infrared ceramic heaters with radiant directional wavelengths that oscillate water molecules, making them evaporate so that clothes are dry and wrinkle free in minutes. Ideal for compact apartments, the design folds down and can easily be stored under a bed or in a closet. It’s a quick and easy solution after you’ve been out in the rain or just need a quick dry for damp garments.

Metal Swan

Metal Swan

The Serenad chair’s elegant form is inspired by the unique sleeping position of the swan with it’s head between its wings as it floats on the water. Its soft yet extravagant shape is off-set by a surprising reflective chrome finish that mirrors the colors and patterns of everything around it. Definitely not appropriate for every interior style, but place it in the right room with the right surroundings and it’s sure to make a statement!

Shade in Disguise

Shade in Disguise

While it might just look like an interesting art installation set in nature, Shade by Ohad Lustgarten is actually a moveable structure for mountain tops, hiking trails, deserts, or any other place where people might seek refuge from the sun and other elements. The skeletal, spiraling shape can be adjusted by the users to cast a shadow for cooling down or to shield from harsh wind. It’s functionality at it’s most beautiful!

Ah, Refreshed!

Ah, Refreshed!

With an aim to provide a fuller sensory experience, The Refresh was designed to act as a portable device that instantly cools your beverage. Essentially this means no more warm diet coke! Keeping up with the theatrics of good design, the appliance helps form a light condensation, followed by an enticing mist that envelopes the beverage bottle. Using advanced thermoelectric technology, the electric current causes the internal semiconductor nodes to instantly freeze.
