Modern Meets Vintage

Modern Meets Vintage

A part of the “Successful Living” collection by the Diesel Creative Team, the floor and pendant Cage lamps reflect both modern pop culture and vintage style influences. Smooth, bright colored shades contrast with dark, heavy-duty wire, making it an aesthetically sensible choice for both contemporary settings and industrial spaces alike.

Not Your Granny's Kettle

Not Your Granny’s Kettle

The word ‘kettle’ itself has a sort of antiquated, old-school ring to it, doesn’t it? With this in mind, designer Felipe Arnador redesigned the classic Braun brand kettle to appeal to the younger user. Its sleek appearance is made possible by a double surface layer that produces a vacuum between the interior and exterior, keeping the user’s hand safe from heat and eliminating the need for a handle.

Minimal Twist on the Hubless

Minimal Twist on the Hubless

If you can look past the hubless wheels, you’ll appreciate the fine symmetry behind this design- the Twist Bike. The unique gearing system allows each component to be easily removed for storage, repair, or transporting. The design is also capable of linking with other Twists to create a tandem network of bikes.

Clever Handlebars

Clever Handlebars

The Glo-Bars is a very clever handlebar system that integrates rechargeable LED lights to the bars of the cycle. These lights not only illuminate the track for the cyclist but also make them visible to oncoming traffic. The lights double up as turn signal indicators and also emit red light for traffic behind the cyclist. By simply customizing the handles, we have a safer cycling system in place!

The Four Concept

The Four Concept

Four is a very stylized multi-touch AMOLED device that hangs on your wall, providing pretty pictures and sounds with a dash of functionality. The 145 x 235 mm device brings you weather forecasts, natural ambience, travel planning facilities and more. It is not a tablet or an attempt to put an iPad-esque clone on the wall, but an attempt to make the digitalized Mona Lisa on your wall do something more for you!

Dream Beemer

Dream Beemer

Inspired by the artistic and structural works of Santiago Calatrava, the BMW i-FD bridges the ultimate driving machine’s fine-tuned engineering with a dynamic and fresh aesthetic. Aggressive, shark-like lines add a futuristic touch, but the overall design is a realistic and elegant take on what future Beemers might look like.

The Mantis Chair

The Mantis Chair

Wildetect’s Mantis Chair takes inspiration from the African wilderness, adopting the form of one of its iconic creatures, the giant praying mantis. Admittedly, a certain level of comfort was sacrificed in the design, but its wild, sculptural aesthetic ensures it to be the primary focal point of any room.

Abstraction of Form

Abstraction of Form

The simple, yet striking Ariva furniture series is an example of neoplasticism in its purest form. Each piece avoids symmetry and attains aesthetic balance by the use of opposition. The designs play with the geometry of the straight line, square and rectangle combined with strong asymmetricality to skew the viewer’s perception. From the side, each piece is slender and skeletal, but from the front appears thick and robust. In pure white, the series is as refined as it is peculiar.

iPhone Gets Wallmounted and Docked

iPhone Gets Wallmounted and Docked

On/off the Wall is a clever docking station for the iPhone. It wallmounts the phone in such a way that you can operate it without a hitch! The dock casing does not interfere with the touchscreen or the home button. All apps at your fingertips and what’s more the design pays tribute to Donn Koh’s reNEW Solar Charger. Love it!

Romantic Rake

Romantic Rake

The humble rake gets poetic justice with this beautiful concept called ‘Reverse for Rebirth Romance Rake.’ On one hand the redesign assures you of quickly raked-up yards and on the other, it hopes to spice up your living space as an iconic wall decoration. Of course this means you will have to clean the rake-teeth and then display them! Fancy!

Raging Bull

Raging Bull

There’s no better automotive brand to experiment with wild design than Lamborghini. With this in mind, Mark Hostler designed the Ferruccio concept as an unrestrained vision of what the automaker’s future vehicles might look like. The flamboyant design takes inspiration from the signature multifaceted, “stealth fighter” aesthetic, but also applies a new design language of aggressive (almost violent), sharp points and dramatic lines that can best be described as crystalline.

Buzzzzzworthy Webcam

The Wonder Stick!

The Wonder Stick!

Light Stick is a modular stick for the visually challenged that incorporates a lot of good features that make it handy. For starters, it has an obstacle sensor at the end of the stick to alert the user of any danger ahead. The modular handgrip detaches to double up as a scanner and can ‘read’ and relay back the written text as a voice feedback via the Smart Wireless Headphone. Braille markings ensure that the user can snap back the handgrip correctly. It’s details like this and more, that make it a perfect stick!
