Avatar Inspired Modularity

Avatar Inspired Modularity

Here’s a lamp from the coldest snow piles of Russia, presented by designer Anton Kozhevnikov who just happened to be really inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar. This lamp goes by the name “Atan” and has three modular fixtures. The base is heavy and full of sockets, each of them fitting and locking perfectly with the fixtures in order to assure stability. LED lights blast light from the tips of these fixtures, and puppies love it!

Watch to Time, Turbines to Speed!

Watch to Time, Turbines to Speed!

Behold, the ancient power of windmills! It’s no mistake that windmills have been so prevalent in horror movies over the course of our recent past – the very thought of such a majestic beast being blown to bits gives me the shivers! Projects design group reminds us that windmills are amongst humankind’s oldest energy sources, turning water and wind into pure power! Thusly, they’ve made an object to remind us of that excellent trade here, in the Turbino watch.

Ultra Sonic Wine

Ultra Sonic Wine

No point in consuming wine that hasn’t aged sufficiently or buying plenty if you don’t have proper cellars to store them. A mid-way option is the WAVE Ultra Sonic Wine Ager And Refrigerator concept. An appliance that features two-layered shelves with the inner walls emitting ultrasonic waves, to act on the molecules of the wine, to age them! A custom touchscreen helps you navigate through the settings, helping you determine the speed of aging at the touch of a button. Definite a prized gift for the connoisseur who has serious space issues at home!

Supernatural Coke!

Supernatural Coke!

I’m not getting you high on any abusive substance here, but simply telling you about a new spiritual form of the ever-famous Coca Cola. Lovingly called the Mystic, this new package boasts of “sexy lines”, “sculpted body”, and “loving silhouette”. It’s not an attempt to get Eco Friendly, but just an exercise to bring happiness in 3 dimensions!

Windows of Protection

Windows of Protection

This is an automobile for the future of family transport and safety and it goes by the name “The Guardian.” Epic name! It’s automated enough that you need no license, there’s no age minimum, and you can be drunk as a sailor inside of it while it’s cruising down the road. Well that’s crazy!, you must be saying. It’s automated!, I say. I can’t help but think of the film Minority Report where the cars also all-but-drive themselves, allowing lots of freedom for speed but as you quickly realize, a lot of room for control by big brother.

Seek and... Search and Destroy!

Seek and… Search and Destroy!

The following project is based mainly in the sketch realm, so bare with me all ye lovers of reality. For the rest of you, take that last swig of caffeine and strap on your air-pistols because this is one o’ them destroyer robots! Named “Search Bot” by its father Alp Germaner. Designer Alp Germaner I should say, but refuse to! Because this is a child of the mind. A robot from the electronic zaps and responses of the brain of Germaner, father to a race of machines that will one day crush us all.

Beauty From Within

Beauty From Within

You don’t need x-ray vision goggles to appreciate inner beauty and you don’t need a superficial skin to beautify the X-RAY Phone. For his collaboration with KDDI iida, Tokujin Yoshioka settles for the inner beauty theme while designing the phone. Tech chips and electronic parts are aesthetically arranged internally and a cleverly positioned display, under the transparent skin, brings out the true meaning of “designing from inside.”

Snip-Dip-Sip Coffee

Snip-Dip-Sip Coffee

Open It! is quite a clever package design and I hope someone like the exemplified Nescafe takes cue. The idea is for cold coffee mix but I think we can use it for hot cappuccino mixes as well. You simply open up the top end of the coffee mixture pouch, pour the contents into water and use the same pouch as a straw for stirring & sipping the drink! Simple and totally worth commercializing!

Split-Face Sink, Very Nice!

Split-Face Sink, Very Nice!

It’s so natural for us to put all the dirty dishes into the sink and come back later to tackle them. Wouldn’t it be great if our sink got intelligent enough and cleaned up the mess automatically? Ah, the pleasures of the concept world peppered with practical solutions! Here’s the Pure Washer – Eco Automatic Sink that does just this. It’s a sink that is divided into two rotatable parts, where in one part you put in the dishes, and it rotates away under the counter to wash them. The other part is a mirror image to the first and is ready to take in your next cycle.

Exit Made Easy

Exit Made Easy

REDesign Exit Door simply repositions the door handle to make it an intuitive and effective design during emergency evacuations. Most of than not, the assumption is that we are going to run through doors. But in user-situation, it could be a physically-challenged person, a child or even a person crawling up to the door, who may find the horizontal door bar difficult to reach. Thus this vertical, elongated handle serves as a fitting re-design.

A Strip of Car

A Strip of Car

A Mobius strip is a surface with “one continuous side formed by joining the ends of a rectangular strip after twisting one end through 180°” (Apple Dictionary.) It’s named after its discoverer August Ferdinand Möbius who basically found it super interesting because it was forever three dimensional. The vehicle you’re about to glance upon is the Mobius as well, this one designed by Tommaso Gecchelin who aims to merge aesthetic suggestions of both math and geometry into one harmonious shape.

Table on Tight

Table on Tight

Turn your vast collection of table leaf and board fragments into a lovely table miracle with “Grip,” a fabulous new solution by a couple of genius designers working for Bloomming. All it really is is a set of four table legs capable of gripping and screwing down tight onto a piece of wood with a very familiar screw-tight contraption. You can use your own wood or choose from a selection of bamboo boards also available from Bloomming. It’s ecologically responsible!
