As If Bonsais Couldn't Be More Beautiful

As If Bonsais Couldn’t Be More Beautiful

The Kasokudo Bonsai Planter is a stunning fusion of form and function that’s only made better when it becomes home to a living sculpture. Referencing speed forms and manufacturing processes in automotive design, the piece juxtaposes movement applied to what is usually a peacefully static object. It implies acceleration but effortlessly floats to house the bonsai, evoking a perfect balance of dynamic harmony. Made to order so hit up the designer for yours!

Next-Gen Neck Support

Next-Gen Neck Support

One look at Handsome’s modern Neck Brace design and its focus is on lightness and discretion becomes apparent. While neck braces are the simplest solution for stabilizing the head, they’re often the most obvious and cumbersome. To combat this problem, the new design utilizes an open and lightweight nylon structure weighing in at just 80 grams. It not only feels cooler but is more comfortable by placing the weight of the head on the sternum rather than the collarbone.

Although it defies the laws of stability, it maintains a contemporary aesthetic that’s sure to be a conversation starter. Vid after the jump!

The Forever Toothbrush

The Forever Toothbrush

Think about how many toothbrushes you toss out in just the course of a year… then multiply that by your lifetime. Chances are, you’re seeing a mental mountain of plastic! In a nutshell, Goodwell’s modern toothbrush was inspired by this very thought. It utilizes a lasting aluminum body with compostable toothbrush attachments that you can feel confident tossing out. Better yet, a future design will include a 3-axis accelerometer & smartphone app to monitor & encourage regular brushing & flossing!

Whiskey Minus The Rocks

Whiskey Minus The Rocks

You already know it cause you taste the difference every time, beverages with a tone of ice get diluted quick and taste drab. The Chilling Sipstick is an innovation that hopes to set things straight. The device is a digital stick and you can set its temperature and the cooling panel on the front side helps maintain the same coolness till the last drop. The design also uses the kinetic energy of the pendulum embedded in the inside of the stick to power it. Love it!
