Manly Modern Timepiece

Manly Modern Timepiece

I like my watches like I like my lovers- on time and looking good! Seriously though, I prefer a sleek, minimal yet masculine design that will achieve those two simple things. The Lepidus collection is for the purist who knows what they want. In carbon, steel and platinum finishes, this is a modern man’s watch through and through. Just look at this hunk wearing it!

Lovely Layers

Lovely Layers

Originally designed as a base for a salvaged piece of glass, the Lofting Table merges creative construction methods with classic style that has a subtle nautical feel. The name is derived from the traditional lofting technique used to plot curves in boat-building; an unusual method for the construction of a timber table. Using a combination of 3D CAD technology & the simple jointing method, the construction is based around laminating horizontal layers together to form a single complex 3D geometry.

Sanitary Street Dogs

Sanitary Street Dogs

Big cities (like Los Angeles, where I live) are known for their street hot dogs, but I’ve avoided ever trying one because I can’t get over wondering where the heck those guys wash their hands?! For germophobes like me, the Rango Hot Dog Stand was designed with hygiene in mind. It utilizes special food compartments and hands-free condiment dispensers that allow the “building” of the dogs to be done without ever touching the food. It also has a small sink for washing hands!

True Modular Style in Switches

True Modular Style in Switches

Lumen Circular Switches have the advantage of bearing a basic framework on which modulation can be done depending upon luxury, style and needs. The design focus is on three segments – the frame, button caps and buttons. The innards offer sufficient space for a complete set of application components such as wiring the thermostat, switch, etc. A very simple design that offers a range of combinations, I think it’s neat!

Bottle of Smartness

Bottle of Smartness

No matter how cool you think you look with a bottle of Evian or Bling h2o; in the boardroom you are going to be trapped with a lowly PET bottle! Unless you get smart enough to invest in great ideas like the Metamorphose. It is a bottle filter system with a unique skin that scrolls down to cover up a regular looking bottle. In a jiffy you transform an ordinary bottle to something sleek and spectacular, and one with eco-sense. The filter system extends the PET bottle’s regular life up to 10 times and yet manages to make it look sexy. It even fits well in your bag; I want one now!

Dapper Davenport

I’m loving this solid wood desk by designer Shpelyk Roman. With a swinging top level and two planes to work on, it achieves the functionality of a multi-level desk while still maintaining aesthetic minimalism. The tapered, wide-stance legs are an interesting compliment to the square top and can be removed for easy transportation simply by twisting. Great as a desk or table for the small work studio or apartment.

Expanding Home

Expanding Home

Odorico Pordenone is a delightful caravan that expands its seams to accommodate you and your folks quite comfortably. For a person who is never intimidated by the size of the car that I am driving, a bulky trailer somehow manages to unnerve me. Looking into this idea’s perfect fusion of design, technological and architectural approach, I think this one has nailed it good.

Sticky Voice on the Wall

Sticky Voice on the Wall

Record me is an ingenious way to pass on messages and stay in touch with busy family members. Most of us have adopted the sticky-note-on-the-fridge routine; Record me changes this to a voice message that can be easily recorded and played back. The video explains the procedure and I think it is a clever way to stay in touch, I mean I’d much rather listen to my son speak than decipher his scrawny note!

Quintessential Quadricycle

Quintessential Quadricycle

The StroM Bouqetin is unlike any other quadricycle design in that it’s optimized for serious trail riding and touring. The rear-wheel drive, single-rider cycle features full independent suspension, dual shock rifles, a variable ball-gear drive, four disc brakes and a lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber body. Add some physical strength and you’re ready to attack the off-road.

Airborn EcoCraft

Airborn EcoCraft

Inspired by airships and paragliding sports, the Sky Voyage concept aims to expand traffic networks to the sky by utilizing airspace to relieve urban traffic congestion on the ground. The hybrid glider/airship can take off vertically by inflating the gasbag in an upright position. Once airborn, the craft can be maneuvered through the wind with assistance from a hydrogen fuel-cell powered turbine engine.

The Wavy Tea Set isn’t just nice to look at- the layers and unique organic form are purposed as such that each fits naturally and comfortably in the user’s hand. The alternative “handle” design was inspired by the process of glass blowing and captures the pulling action of hot glass being formed.
