Calling All Divers, Micro Algae Scuba

Calling All Divers, Micro Algae Scuba

Inadequate air supply is one of the top complaints from divers. They want to stay under water longer. There are rich marine resources, and therefore the combination of micro algae characteristics and a “rebreather” are applied in the Micro Algae Scuba concept.

Ebony and Ivory in Switches

Ebony and Ivory in Switches

The gorgeous Remorkable Piano Switches fashioned as elegant piano keys give a new meaning to ebony and ivory. Made from Corian the keys can be customized in two tones or kept singular color. What’s neat is that you can engrave or screen-print text and symbols on them. The LED Module of switches embeds the lights within the frame, upping the glam-quotient. A voltage version, the 250V model also allows the product to be used for renovation work.

Nimble Foot on the Scale

Nimble Foot on the Scale

I’m not BFF with weighing machines, so much so that I keep ignoring the one in my room everyday! An overwhelming sense of desperation engulfs me when I step on it, and often juggle my frame, in the hope that it may show just an ounce lesser than before. Resonating this sentiment of mine, Jinsik Kim has designed the artistic Salopsy Scale. Molded from either concrete or clay, the scale is the shape of two feet, when perched as tiptoe. I love it more for the emotional value that it aims to provide than its actual function.

RX Re-envisioned

RX Re-envisioned

The RXFE electric concept represents how a modern successor to the iconic rotary powered RX7 might take form. Four hub mounted electric motors work in tandem with the rotary engine forming a hybrid power drive. The RXFE’s facelift emphasizes hard lines and masculine detail but maintains the low profile of the two door 90s icon.

Lamp is a Man-eater!

Lamp is a Man-eater!

Looks like I’m not the only one with a crazy little shark obsession! I am IN love with this lamp by Aleksandr Mukomelov. The sweeping form of the Shark lamp is subtle enough to blend into both elegant spaces and casual rooms alike. An articulate design with touch of whimsy that will make you chuckle.

Hardcore Headphones

Hardcore Headphones

The Helix-IR concept is designed by Jean HONG & Dassault Systèmes DesignStudio team. It’s a wireless headphone that looks like mechanical wizardry with all the moving parts. The central part is made from sheet aluminum, laser cut and stamped. This configuration provides a lightweight, flexible structure complimented with high end finishing. It surrounds the head like an exo-skeleton. We don’t have much information on the specs but told the performance is top-tier for the hardcore audiophile.

Bring Mount Fuji into Your Home

Bring Mount Fuji into Your Home

If you’ve been lucky enough to visit Japan and see the majestic mount Fuji, then you understand why designers like Yuchen Liu are inspired by it. It’s perpetually surrounded by mist and  that’s when it clicked for Yuchen Liu. The Fujisan Humidifer is an homage to mountain – purifies the air and puts moisture back into it. Beautiful, honest design.

Hand-Spun Chair

Hand-Spun Chair

This twist (literally) on the chair, the brainchild of designer Markus Johansson, challenges the straight, rigid, and traditional forms of the modernist aesthetic, presenting itself as a violent and chaotic swirl of solid wood frozen in time. Combining modern and age-old technique, NEST is constructed of a free form combination of round pegs that are bent and then drilled in a CNC milling machine for a precision fit. The pegs share an identical cut, making production easy and straightforward without sacrificing style.

Deception of Reflection

Deception of Reflection

It’s a strange thing that we’ll never fully experience what it’s like to see ourselves through someone else’s eyes. Seeing your reflection, or viewing photos of yourself is somehow different than how other people see you. Deception of Reflection by designer John Leung is a mirrored analogy of this phenomenon. The frame’s 3D honeycomb surface makes it appear as though the frame is magically reflected in an entirely different color, reminding the viewer that what is seen in the mirror is entirely subjective.

Simplicity and Style Meet in Gorgeous Bicycle

Simplicity and Style Meet in Gorgeous Bicycle

DV01 is a bicycle concept for people who want a bike to be a convenient means of transportation and a product with high aesthetic value. For many people a bicycle is a place to express personal style. It’s also a product that consists of many different components and parts, which all affect the overall impression. The focus of the project has been about finding a balance between those components. When form and function interact in a successful symbiosis, the product may last longer and loved by more people. Beautiful work David!
