Industrious Coffee Machine

Industrious Coffee Machine

Love me this industrious looking espresso machine. Aptly called the Kansas, it’s the labor of love of young Shenkar student Yotam Cohen. Details like a rim-bar to hold extra cups and the pressure gauge to regulate the steam, add to the retro appeal. Easy to use, and like Yotam claims, “a coffee machine that puts a smile on your face when you wake up in the morning.” Something different, something with character!

Porsche Baby!!

Porsche Baby!!

It’s about time there is a little equality in the baby stroller market! The Porsche Design P’4911 blends a unique mix of materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, leather, ball-bearing wheels,  into this tough looking design that is, to say the least, quite masculine (man growl). The minimal design folds compact enough to fit into the trunk of any Porsche.

Unorthodox Joints and Locks

Unorthodox Joints and Locks

This unique hardware by designer Benjamin Parton provides a functionally simplistic and attractive way to join a variety of materials. The Escher Joint secures surfaces in an elegant tripodal arrangement and can be used in a combination of materials to create both open and closed bespoke structures. Alternatively, the Lumber Lock provides accurate square holes for using square pegs in sheet material ensuring the perfect fit each time and providing a functional alternative to wasteful sectional dowling.

Perplexing Wall Clock

Perplexing Wall Clock

Using the same lenticular printing technology as many image-shifting postcards and “wiggle pictures,” the AM/PM Wall Clock by Studio Dreimann allows the viewer to read both AM and PM times by simply changing their viewing perspective. It may look like the most simple of clocks from a direct front view, but take a few steps to the side and with an illusion of depth you’ll see the numbers almost magically change to PM

Tablet PC is a Home PC and a Backup Solution

Tablet PC is a Home PC and a Backup Solution

Computers are in need of improvement in two areas: flexibility in the apartment & backing up data. What does flexibility means? The combination of a tablet PC and a docking station, turns into the perfect home PC called M!nd. It’s an alternative to the standard notebook and provides both a comfortable browsing and ergonomic experience. The backup process is an entirely different beast.

The Car Knows What You're Thinking

The Car Knows What You’re Thinking

I’d love to travel back in time, point and laugh at all the futurists who thought we would be in flying cars by now. Of course they couldn’t have possibly foreseen a future where the challenges of navigable controls, integrated computers and an energy crisis dominate the landscape. The NEURON is an IMAGINATIVE look at how BMI (brain interface technology) could bring “man and machine” even closer. It doesn’t rely on physical dexterity. Just think it and it’s done. Now channeling Spock… “fascinating.”

Cart For As You Grow

Cart For As You Grow

In this day and age of modularity fittings, it only makes sense to invest in products that can go beyond their obvious function. For example, the Monocart looks to be a simple child buggy, but as the child grows and out-grows the simple pleasures of being pushed around in a chair, making it a multi functional extends the useful life of this cart. It becomes a cart for wheeling groceries or a stroller; even a gardening stool. How about that!

The Pebble Effect

The Pebble Effect

The limited edition Water Stone Faucet and sink system is as elegant as it gets. Working on the relationship between water, lights and the rippling effects of pebbles and stones, designer Omer Sagiv makes an effort to bring the natural elements into the home environment. And he does this quite artistically with special inputs by Touch360 and Smith Newnam, who have designed the working mechanisms. Swanky, just the way I like it!

A Watch for Lovers

A Watch for Lovers

This thoughtful 3d-printed timepiece by Daniel Kamp was designed to remind the wearer of their partner, family member, or friend. Appropriately named the Other-Half Watch, it features a secondary face meant to be set to a significant other’s unique timezone. This hidden face is located on the inner part of the wristband, keeping loved ones close even when they’re geographically far away.

For the Minimalist on the Run

For the Minimalist on the Run

The Nespresso coffee maker just made me realize how ugly and nonsensical most other coffee makers on the market truly are. It seems like even single serving makers are just getting bigger and more complicated to use, right?! This design provides a simple, clean, and precise experience for the user through minimum action to operate and a straightforward aesthetic. Perfect when there’s no time for French press.

Shell Ship

Shell Ship

Shells have long been admired for their beauty, as a symbol of nature, and as a reminder of the sea. The Conch superyacht takes inspiration from the swirling twists and fluid shapes of a variety of these ocean objects. Fit with modern toys, this is one eye-catching design.

Bejeweled Memories

Bejeweled Memories

Transcendental Tunes is a music player set with digital jewelry that offers an alternative route to treating Alzheimer’s patients. It is developed under the premise that “people living with Alzheimer’s don’t lose their memories, but lose their capacity to reach them.” The digital jewels store songs that are relevant to the patient and hopes to trigger their memory in order to make them feel connected.

Blooming DSLR

Blooming DSLR

I remember borrowing a professional camera from a cousin for my African Safari Honeymoon. You would expect me to capture some really gorgeous pictures of lions making their kill, well to cut a long story short, I had no clue how to work the thing, so I ended up overexposing some pictures and taking out-of-focus shots. Thankfully the current generation of DSLRs is more forgiving towards amateurs. But basics like lighting and exposure can still intimidate some, hence the need for the Flower!
