Vintage-ish

Complete with the signature brushed gold plate, granulated plastic cover and glittering plastic corners, the Marshall Freeplayer might look like the famous vintage amp, but it’s actually a speaker for all your modern music players. Sync your devices via bluetooth or the iPod dock to experience 360 degrees of high quality audio.

Large-Scale Modularity

Eckbank Ost is a modular seating concept composed of triangular pieces that can be linked together in a variety of ways to form benches, stools, chairs or tables depending on need. Endless combinations, modern shapes and a raw wood aesthetic make it a functional and interesting seating solution that’s adaptable to parks, clubs, restaurants or other places where the number of users can change rapidly.

Lighting Lab

Lighting Lab

I love the obvious inspiration behind this one-of-a-kind lamp design by Michael Samoriz. The Microscope LED Lamp aims to inspire designers, artists and other creatives to view their desk not merely as a desk, but as a laboratory where they can experiment with imagination.

Perfectly Warmed Bath

Perfectly Warmed Bath

When you are in for a long soak, the cycle of water turning from comfortably warm to tepid to cold is frustrating. On rare occasions I indulge in draining out some cold and refilling with the warm water. But my eco-conscious mind chides me for it! Anyways, Warm On pebbles look to resolve this problem innovatively. The pebbles are sensor-fitted heat-radiating artificial stones that maintain the water temperature for a set duration. So from start to finish you can have the same water temperature without any guilt. Awesome!

DIY Postcards

DIY Postcards

I love the fact that we can setup our own photo printing system at home and get creative with it. However there is the limitation of routing the pictures via a computer and then printing them. The Postcards Printer eliminates this step; it doubles up as a digital photo frame and a printer. Creating excusive postcards for posting or just plain photos, both options look awesome with it.

The Plug Lamp

The Plug Lamp

Doesn’t it seem like it’s impossible to find an open outlet when you need one?! The Plug Lamp provides a clever (and cute) solution to this problem by incorporating an outlet into the base so power is always handy!

Simplifying Photography

Simplifying Photography

In this digital era and self-sufficient gadget loving folks, we rarely have to step into a photo studio just to print pictures. Photosensitive is a project that aims to simplify the self-help process where cameras need to hook-up with computers for the printing process. “The application becomes a dimension of the experience, from capturing to archiving and sharing images.”

Monocasco Again!

Monocasco Again!

The Monocasco Concept Bike is an electric version inspired by the original Ossa monocasco bike of Santiago Herrero. Reliving the legacy of the legendary Sabtiago, who died racing his Ossa in the 1970 Grand Prix, this bike is a fitting tribute. The story goes that Ossa abandoned racing altogether after this tragedy.

Steampunk Style

Steampunk Style

The RESPONSUM LEVARE C Sub B3 Chair emphasizes a balance between form and function, blurring the line between utilitarian object and decoration. Its cog-like components and combination of latigo leather and maple dowels with high-tech Richlite fiber composite create a pseudo-Victorian “steampunk” aesthetic that’s sure to make it the focal point of any room. Eccentric, but very handsome nonetheless.

4D Table

4D Table

Inspired by Albert Einstein’s theory on time as a 4th dimension, this table’s steel-mesh glass top represents the space-time continuum and the supports represent four vectors. Even if you’re not big on theories of relativity, there’s no denying that this design’s craftsmanship and cable-work are outstanding!

Screaming Speakers

Screaming Speakers

The Soundmasters speakers are LOUD in both aesthetic and functionality! The cabinet resembles a screaming face with the speaker as the mouth and air vents as the eyes. A multi-angular body creates a unique look that makes each unit appear to sink into the desk and also allows sound to be pointed in different directions.
