Laundry Gets Dynamic

Laundry Gets Dynamic

The Dynamo is a fabric sterilizer that syncs with the everyday lifestyle of its user. It’s a small handy washing machine for one to three garments, which works on Kinetic Energy. You simply load the machine and wind it up. As it slowly winds down (in a bouncing motion), it steam-washes the laundry batch, making you save on resources like water, electricity, money and time. In fifteen minutes flat, you have freshly laundered clothes and good to go!

Dissimilar Design Perfection

Dissimilar Design Perfection

Contrast is key in the design of this versatile piece called Flab, usable for everything from media storage to book organization. Thick antiqued spruce slabs meet thin wood-fiber panels and even thinner tempered glass in a unique mix of textures, colors and sizes that together compliment its irregular geometry.

Chic Backyard Sanctuaries

Chic Backyard Sanctuaries

The M-Velope is one in a series of functional art structures designed to function as retreats in which to escape from the norm. Varying in size & shape, they’re made mostly of sustainable grown wood colored with environmentally friendly stains or paints. In every case, the design of the M-Velopes are generated from simpler forms that are subdivided, hinged together, & folded in or out of the original form in order to create unexpected transformations. As cool as they are on the outside, they’re even cozier inside! Take a peak —>

Signs Of Disaster

Signs Of Disaster

On the first glance, you can think of the ‘Life Trail Traffic Signs’ as standard road signs. However, they can quickly change to evacuation signs, should the need arise. The signs feature sensors that automatically activate when disaster warning alert is triggered from the Disaster Prevention Center. The signs adjust to show the most efficient route to the nearest shelter. Much needed!

Mind Over Food

Mind Over Food

Mind Power is potent and it can manipulate or simulate circumstances that may seem fictitious and surreal. Based on this premise is the plate and glass combo of the ‘SET TO MIMIC’ tableware. The idea is to put a microchip in us, which interacts with our brain cells so that it can register smells, tastes and textures of our favorite food. When bland or ‘health foods’ are placed on the plate, the microchip manipulates our senses to feel as if we are eating our favorite food.

Bejeweled Biometrics

Bejeweled Biometrics

FLIP is the latest in the wearable biometric tech craze, but quite different from  fitness bands and smartwatches. Rather than on your wrist, the device adorns your ear like jewelry for a more discrete and comfortable look and feel that one might even forget is there. Easily paired with smart devices, FLIP acts as a pedometer, heart rate monitor, sleep analyzer and more, providing real-time bio-data expressed in a simplified, user-friendly app.

Perplexing Puzzle Chair

Perplexing Puzzle Chair

Part of a larger collection of flat-pack furniture, the Lese Chair’s defining character is found in its clever construction. Composed of CNC milled beech plywood and polycarbonate, the only screws you’ll find are in the seat back and leg extensions. The rest of the structure is held together using 3D puzzle principles. So puzzling that you’ll be glad you have a place to sit and think about it!

Time, quite simply.

Time, quite simply.

When it comes to timekeeping, you might say wristwatches are in a battle with our digital devices. The Time Reminder watch is just that- a reminder that watches are not only our original personal time tellers, but an artistic personal statement for the individual. Its ultra-minimal aesthetic feature two solid turning disks with embossed hands and a snag-proof concave face. The strap is made of soft touch rubber and features a simple clasp fastening system. So sleek you need to use the embossed dot on the underside to tell which way to wear it!

Bumper News

Bumper News

Its not enough that the iPhone is packed with so many features and apps, we now need to digitalize the bumper too. The reason why we need this bumper is to keep our notifications on our fingertips and have to check our phones every minute or so. The side bar keeps a track of the basics like time and date, battery level, message notifications and even temperature. Innvative, but will it see the light of day?

Naked Table Lamp

Naked Table Lamp

The beauty of this table lamp lies in the exposure of its essential components. The stripped-down design is composed of a soldering board serving as a base, woven copper wiring that gives it malleability to stay upright, and E-10 light holders in a beautiful formation of eight. Artistically industrial, it almost looks accidental but is much too cool to be anything but intentional!

Ring Around the River

Ring Around the River

Located between two major bridges at the Rhine Carée, a significant public urban space of Cologne, the RheinRing represents the new center & links the two halves of the city. The circular construction serves as a pedestrian walkway directly accessible from the historical city center on the west, the Rhine Boulevard on the opposite side, as well as the flanking Rhine bridges. Situated over this landmark river, the ring allows for an innovative experience as an urban space in the inner city, frequented by pedestrians and cyclists.
