With its open-air, vertical design, the Rain Soft Shower aims to mimic the feeling of natural falling water for an entirely new and refreshing showering experience. An adjustable density control allows the user to toggle between modes that recreate the sensation of rain or a full on waterfall, ideal for lathering and rinsing, respectively. When finished bathing, an integrated hot air blowing system helps users dry in a jiffy. The only downside… you’ll miss out on those awesome shower singing acoustics!

However minimal, this home lighting concept packs major multifunctionality into its compact form. Its many features include an 80DB speaker driver with passive bass, built-in microphone for mobile calls, 2 hidden USB ports for charging devices, wireless smartphone syncing, a haptic button that allows you to take/ignore calls or disengaging the phone’s alarm clock, and finally… a color-adjustable light customizable to thousands of different hues! Yessss! But will it blend?!

Design Eye-Q’s Dodge Demon Hellhound reimagines the iconic fastback as a 2-seater defined by its track car proportions and muscle styling. Inspired by 70s Mopar vehicles, its style is characterized by a broad stance and chiseled roofline, but with its front-engined RWD setup, its competition on a performance level is more in line with the likes of the Subaru BRZ. Like the BRZ, it focuses on driving enjoyment with a cockpit layout where the driver is staggered slightly ahead of the passenger similar to a McLaren F1.

One thing that still amazes me about product design is that sometimes a good product can be painfully simple, yet strikingly alluring. The Little Bishop Pendant Light Hook embodies that aforementioned fact. It replaces the ugly hooks you use to hang your lights from the ceiling, and looks so voguish, the way it ‘wears’ the electrical cord like a muffler!

Most helmets don’t go beyond just looking good. After all, they just need to protect your noggin, right? Wrong! Protection is a broad term, and the Lockmet explores that. The name is indicative enough, and the idea is one that makes you wonder about why no one ever thought of that before. Guard your cranium, guard your bike too! It’s that simple!

As men age, they almost always switch to electric razors as a safety precaution. However, the electric razor options are limited to the same ones a younger person would use despite major differences in skin. The Philips Master Shave is the result of thoughtful study and interviews with elderly men who expressed frustration with modern razors’ inability to tackle loose or wrinkled skin as well as difficulty cleaning. The result is one that gives independence back to the individual. More after the jump —>

Designed and developed by creators, for creators, the first release of FLINT Studio Tools aims to elevate the design and experience of the tools you use every day. Crafted from stainless steel, the calipers and rule combination is simple yet sturdy, and laser etched with clear markings and a comfortably legible Eurostile typeface. The design is fully customized to fit in a minimal, waterproof case with embedded magnets to hold the device in place. Together, they’re a beautifully simple must-have (or a great gift!) for everyone from engineers to architects.

Luke Valenza’s Braggadocio desk combines three distinct materials yet maintains a surprisingly minimal aesthetic. The straightforward combination consists of 25mm plywood, recessed smooth black concrete and powder coated steel legs. However simple the material mix, the resulting aesthetic has a warm and natural appeal that’s suitable for modern and classical motifs alike.

Mool Bit is the playful go-anywhere glow pod for your home! The lightweight teardrop design features a tactile top that makes it easy to carry from from place to place with merely a pinch. Power up without a connecting cable by placing it on the wireless charging plate before toting it to an area that needs a little more illumination.

The blade may be sharp, but it is only as swift as the hand guiding it. With the Lamborghini inspired Electric shaver, I assure you, the swiftness will come from within. Chiseled to look just like the Italian automobile company’s magnificent supercars, the concept razor looks “miles ahead of its competition”. Extra points for the signature Orange (codename Arancio) and Carbon Fiber assembly! I wonder if the shaver makes the same sound as the cars do when you switch it on!
