Explorer Yacht

Explorer Yacht

The Open Water 60 M combines the amenities of a luxury yacht & the storage capabilities of a long-distance cruiser into one superyacht with an explorer-ship aesthetic. The exterior is straightforward & follows a modern expression of form, an upcoming trend in yacht design. In the cabin, modern interior design, traditional elements, & surfaces of wood, stone, & metal fuse to create a strong contrast in texture & color while floor-to-ceiling windows emphasize the open living arrangement.

Wrench Open The Door

Wrench Open The Door

What do you do when your door handle gives way? Grab a wrench and try and open the door using it? Bingo! The same idea is being applied to the Wrench Handle; the only difference is that it’s a gilded, up-scaled version rather than a makeshift quick-fix.

Your Next Charger Could Be A Ball of Yarn

Your Next Charger Could Be A Ball of Yarn

Not a real ball of yarn but close enough to elicit “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” from neighborhood cats. Seriously, spools of yarn are like kitty crack to them. The Wool Ball Charger is an ultra long charging cable disguised as a ball of yarn. You get the length when you need it all in a tight little and dare I say… cute package.

Between The Lines

Between The Lines

Inspired by the emotional connection between object and user, designer Camilla Fucili has created Between The Lines, a collection of dining objects that aim to inspire a sense of play and storytelling at the dining table. The collection includes common dining objects such as plates, utensils, glasses, and a tablecloth, but each presents a unique and articulate twist on the familiar.

Customize Your Flush!

Customize Your Flush!

Ladies & gents, let’s be totally candid for a sec & talk about… you guessed it, potty-time! Did you know that the standard toilet uses 15x more drinking water per day than a human does? Sure, low-flush toilets & dry urinals help reduce consumption, but what else can be done to conserve water? Considering that different types of waste require different amounts of water, designer Jose Genovés developed Natura, a toilet that adapts to male urination, female urination, & defecation, reducing water consumption by up to 60%!

Bench Suspended by Balloons?

Bench Suspended by Balloons?

If you’ve seen the 1953 French film “Le Ballon Rouge” then you know where the Balloon Bench was inspired from. Although it appears as if the bench is floating, the illusion is created by the balloons actually being anchored to the ceiling. The balloons even act as lamps. Want one? Check Gallery SOMEWHERE in Tokyo.

Sunflower Monitor Loves Sunning

Sunflower Monitor Loves Sunning

The Sunflower Monitor is one of those concepts I try to view with an objective eye. At first glance, the design seems narrowly different from a very well known form factor but behind the facade are very unique applications. The monitor has 4 sensors that track the sun to generate power. It has a mini-os called Sunflower OS to make syncing with portable devices a simple affair. Of course you can use it like a traditional monitor except this one has a joint design that enables panning in almost any direction from just the slight push of a finger.

Better Than Fireflies in a Bottle

Better Than Fireflies in a Bottle

I remember camping trips where we would carry an extra jar, just to catch fireflies and make glow-in-the-dark lamps. The Bottle Lantern looks something like that. It’s a standard wide-mouth water bottle with four bright LEDs in the lid that are powered by placing your finger in the carrying hook and turning. Thirty seconds of spinning equates to about four minutes of light.

Computer All Rolled Up

Computer All Rolled Up

A day will come when computers can be rolled up like newspapers, and concepts like Roll Me will make complete sense. Here’s why, it features e-paper nanotechnology roll-able display, making it light and portable. With minimal components and built-in cooling systems, the computer is highly ergonomic and intuitive. To “round” it off, it’s powered by SolarRoll – a flexible solar panel that can be stowed within the hollow shaft of the computer.

A Thoughtful Desk Design

A Thoughtful Desk Design

I love a design that incorporates its natural internal mechanics and structural elements into the aesthetic presentation. The simple articulation of the the legs on the sides of the Animate Desk allow a sliver of the maple, leather lined drawer to be seen on either side of the American black walnut exterior framework, enhancing its character and providing the user with an interesting look into the inner workings of their desk. Get it here!

The Blossom Light

The Blossom Light

The Blossom Light by designer Ewa Sendecka features four modular LED components that can be bent and molded thanks to the flexible construction of the tubing that encases the power cable (the same used in gooseneck microphone holders). For further modification the components can be used in any order or number and plugged in for power on either the first or last module. Lay it down, stand it up, or hang it from the ceiling- a great modular lighting system that only requires a little imagination.
