Silver Swan

Silver Swan

The latest addition to the ISMA line of fixtures is the elegant Swan faucet. Its proportions subtly combine heavy and light elements that maintain balance between spout and handle. The inspiration behind this unique style and shape comes from the traditional Danish silverwork. As easy to install as it is to operate, the Swan incorporates the ingenious ISMAFIX mounting system, making self-installation easy as 1-2-3.

Handles on Everything

Handles on Everything

Handles are so important. They enable our wiry, dexterous fingers to grasp all sorts of objects. “Your Magnet” is a u-magnet with little suction cup feet. Stick it on handleless cups, electronics, glass and just about anything that’ll stick. Personally I have a mirrored cabinet that’s near impossible to open after a steamy shower. Your Magnet looks like a good solve for that.

Scissor hanger

Scissor hanger

Check out the Scissor Hanger. It’s a fun and functional to hang one’s clothes. Fortunately the edges are safer the kid safe scissors so no need to worry about shredding up your precious Apple t-shirts (RIP Steve). Made of wood or plastic.

Inspired Sands of Light

Inspired Sands of Light

The sense of déjà vu is overwhelming when you look at the Sandglass Light, however with the exception to the shape, little else is common between the old and the new. Clearly inspired by the age-old hourglass shape, this refined version has simple functions and does away with the timer. Three settings and minimal twists encourage you to use the lamp more as ambient lighting than just a novelty fixture. This new avatar is all about refinements!

Flower Talk

Flower Talk

The Floating Pot is for both the green thumb folks and the not-so-plant-savvy people like me. Basically it’s a pot-in-pot where the inner pot floats up to a certain level when water is poured into it. As and when the water gets absorbed the inner pot sinks, indicating replenishment of water. The green-thumb folks will look at it as a two-way communication between their beloved plant and them. Forgetful folks like me will take it as a reminder to water the plant before it dies!

Crazy About Daisy

Crazy About Daisy

In keeping with Blat Design’s Mediterranean-inspired aesthetic, the Daisy pendant lamp is both light and fresh. Its petals allow plenty of light to slip through and are even bold like the flower of the Mediterranean daisy. DIY wood and metal styles in a number of finishes are as much a pleasure to construct as they are to look at.

Quick Change Cycle

Quick Change Cycle

The M2 electric racing motorcycle by designer Pedro Marcondes is one slick looking street bike. I’m loving the athletic stance and round spokes, but what really sets it apart is its race-ready construction. 6 sub-divided cells make it easy to remove, repair, or replace integral components during those time-critical pit stops.

A lightweight frame & hybrid integration of propulsion, energy generation & storage, & tethered wind-power generation make it a super-efficient & relatively quick method of delivering emergency care to otherwise inaccessible areas.

Sexy Bone Noise

Sexy Bone Noise

There are three major advantages to using bone conduction technology for headphone: ears are free from devices, higher sound clarity in noisy environments and perception of stereo sound. With the use of BRS – Bone Conduction Radio Short Wave System I’d add the fourth one as being super sexy with green lights and all! Sporting a chic design, these bone conduction earpieces look groovy and function efficiently with minimal controls. Can’t wait to see them on the shelves.

Num Lock

Num Lock

The B.Y Handle Lock is an oversimplified lock for cycles. An extending wire from one end of the handle loops into the tire of the cycle, and is secured via a number lock on the other side. A few points of refinements come to my mind, like the wire should be made retractable so that coiling it back into the handle shouldn’t be a hassle. The other point is of course, the wire should be heavy duty so that it can be secured to a fence or a tree. Otherwise, it’s a pretty neat idea, what do you think?

Surfing Asymmetrical

Surfing Asymmetrical

These original asymmetrical boards are undeniably awesome in both aesthetic & functionality. The limited series of regular & goofy-footed boards are made of foam & fiberglass & each is painted with bold color-blocking complimented by a super shiny high-gloss finish. As for the shape- designer Rick Malwitz explains, “surfing backside typically feels stiffer than frontside, but the smaller turning radius on the ‘short’ side of the board helps the backside ride just as well as the front. It’s a great feature to the shape.”

Table's a Little Tricky

Table’s a Little Tricky

The latest from designer Marc Th. van der Voorn, the Branch table combines solid European oak and steel to create a subtle visual illusion that will stand out as the centerpiece of any dining room. Supported by matte-black steel rods, the thick tabletop appears to float effortlessly above the legs. A bit rustic and a touch modern- there’s no denying the craftsmanship here.

Shelter for Familiarity

Shelter for Familiarity

The Almost Home Shelter is the result of a collaborative student observation of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami survivors and how emergency relief could be adapted to better suit subsistence users rather than those of developed nations. The simple modular shelter is easy to assemble and customizable to various living situations, mimicking the community environments found in rural villages and encouraging people to interact as they would before the disaster.
