Don't Mess With This Tea Set

Don’t Mess With This Tea Set

This tea set has got a nasty attitude in all the right ways. Designer José Paulo Alves Corceiro was inspired to design a set of china that wasn’t boring or dainty, and the Nasty Set is anything but. The porcelain set’s grimacing faces and unorthodox shape recall the iconography of comics, animated film, and video games. Look a little Pac-Man to me!

Little Boo, Whole Lotta Bend

Little Boo, Whole Lotta Bend

The natural bamboo and matte-black metal of the  Bendboo table lamp come together to make one sleek looking lighting accessory. The polished bamboo perfectly matches the curve of the metal frame and can slide up and down to adjust the angle of light emitted by two embedded LEDs.

Guessing Game is Back!

Guessing Game is Back!

What is this, a telescope? A sound machine? Hmmmm…it’s a Sony for sure!

Can anyone guess what this is?

Big Sexy Yacht

Big Sexy Yacht

The 46m E-Yacht’s unique Ramform Banff hull makes it’s 20m beam more than double that of traditional 46m yachts. The reason? More room to play! Powered by a diesel electric propulsion system, the ship’s innovative hull provides more interior space while maintaining efficiency. The fluid top surface softens the gargantuan exterior aesthetic and maximizes the use of the upper deck.

A Perfect Warm Weather Chair

A Perfect Warm Weather Chair

The only thing I don’t like about Ben Fredriksson’s Crossover Chair is that it reminds me that summer is almost over! The folding ash chair gives a nod to traditional forms but in a fun, minimal, and multicolored style. Ergonomic and weather-proof, they’re an all-around great simple summer chair.

Point & Shoot Tablet Pen

Point & Shoot Tablet Pen

As digi-painting application technology expands, so does the need for digital artistry tools. The Chromopen concept makes choosing colors for matte-painting a cinch. The user simply points and shoots the Chromopen’s built-in camera to catch colors directly from the scene they’re painting, simultaneously broadening their understanding of color tones. Genius!

The Lunar Influence on Time

The Lunar Influence on Time

The Moonshine is inspired by the phases of the moon and can depict the entire lunar process of new moon to the eclipse, in one go. On the face of it is the clock and behind it is a timed lamp that mimics the moonlight from moonrise to moonset. For the star signs influenced by the moon, this looks to be quite a soothing lamp/clock combo to have around. I totally want one!

Power Strip Cornered

Power Strip Cornered

The Intelligent Power Strip has an imposing triptych composition that allows you to place it at any nook. The beauty of the design is that the power cord can be maneuvered to face the direction of the outlet, no matter how you place the strip. It’s a very radical new design and I’d love to see how this really works for the room corners.

Classic Copic Marker Redesign

Classic Copic Marker Redesign

No designer is complete without a set of classic Copic markers… and this design goes to show that even a designer’s tools can use a makeover every now and then. The new style is a stripped down, slimmer version in matte black that feels and looks a bit more serious. Instead of a duel-tip, this one features a single broad tip to fit snugly into a nifty pocketable case.

Boarding Safely at Night

Boarding Safely at Night

I really appreciate that I live in a city where people would rather ride their bike, roller-blade, or skateboard than drive a car… but I can’t even begin to count how many times I’ve seen people almost get run over! Especially at night. Sure bikes have lights and reflectors but what about skateboards and longboards? Introducing the HAL longboard light…

Super Sleek Stadium

Super Sleek Stadium

This ultra-modern proposal for an urban stadium looks like something outta this world! Radiant curves, sleek lines, and the structure’s material combination of stainless steel, carbon fiber, and concrete create a remarkable contrast to the stadium’s placement in a natural coastal setting. Situated just outside Seoul, the venue would host year-round sports and events for local communities. A bit alien, but I’m liking it!

Dhobi Ghat Special

Dhobi Ghat Special

Besides the washing machine, most Indian women depends heavily on the Dhobi (aka washer man) to wash the house linen. Heavy-duty laundry is always assigned to this curious breed of people (dhobi), who carry their load to the nearest dhobi ghat and manually launder the towels, bed sheets, trousers etc. Crisp ironed linen and clothes are handed back after a week and the next stack is lined up for collection. Indra is a concept washing machine to aid the dhobi with his washing and make life more easier for him.
