Power Wash

Power Wash

The DualWash reminds me of the Electrolux Design Lab concept Bifoliate Double Dishwasher. The idea is similar, to have a wall mounted dishwasher that doubles up as a storage cabinet. However the DualWash features some newer innovations. This two sided dishwasher uses carbon-dioxide cleaning rather than water-based cleaning.

A twist on the urban bench, the Mnogoyarus applies the functionality of bleachers into a more compact design that provides added seating without taking up much more space. The raised, tiered wooden plank seats are situated on a sturdy concrete base anchored deep in the ground for stability. The simple design offers a different view and encourages the sharing of space between park-goers.

Smoke Detector and Mask in 1

Smoke Detector and Mask in 1

Smoke masks and smoke detectors can mean the difference between life and death in the event of a house fire – so why not combine the two?! The first design of its kind, the TaG mask actually detects smoke itself and emits a sound signal that alerts victims and makes it easier to find in a smokey room. Furthermore, TaG uses flashing LEDs and a built-in sonorous locator to help rescuers evacuate those in danger. Genius! Check out the vid to see how it works!

The SimCheong Printer & Scanner concept is inspired by a Korean story and the motive behind it is very simple; making computer peripherals more accessible to the visually challenged.

Water to the Rescue

Water to the Rescue

One of the major challenges for those effected by natural flood disasters is finding clean drinking water. The Source of Water concept aims to help those in need get clean  water quickly and conveniently. The design is based on a simple principle that water pressure around the tube will push through the purifying layers, producing drinkable water with very little effort. The user simply has to drop the tubular filter in the center of the cross within the buoyant ring and remove when full.

The DockOff is a unique charging station that doubles up as a wall mount as well as tabletop dock. As a wall mount when it is hooked into a socket, a unique slot allows you to use the station as a multi tap plug point. This means you can still you’re the plug point to hook up one more electronic item. A very unique tangle of process, but it all makes sense when you use it together.

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.
