Doctor Fish For Clothes

Have you ever experienced a Doctor Fish pedicure? It’s basically this school of fish in a tub of water, where you soak your feet in and they come and nibble on the dead skin of your feet. Based on this idea is the Pecera Robot Fish Washing Machine, a very interesting concept that doesn’t require any detergents and saves water.

Lunar-inspired Lighting

Lunar-inspired Lighting

Inspired by the designer’s meditative time on a trip to the desert, the 2 Moons lighting series is a reflection on that bright, full-mooned night. There are always two faces to every moon but we are only able to admire one at a time. In floor and table lamp models, the design pays tribute to the unseen face with sets of two flat “shades.” Each shade is adjustable and can be moved upward and downward to create different configurations.

The Easy Find is medical equipment that will work very well in emergency situation like disasters. Typically IV Fluids are transparent and keeping an eye on them is a persistent task. When the ER is flooded with patients, things may get chaotic and thus this reusable glass infusion bottle with a specially designed dropper lights up when the drip-solution runs out. The glow is a clear indication that some action is required.

Bespoke Baby Bed

Bespoke Baby Bed

Nuture is a concept that replaces the core and support layers of traditional infant mattresses with a strap system that allows for a bespoke design to be created for every child. The aluminum frame provides rigidity with adjustable tension straps that allow the profile to be altered. This means parents can tailor the mattress contours to their baby to help prevent flat head syndrome, limit acid reflux and more. It’s also extendable to adapt to a range of infant beds & grows as the child does, all the way until they transition to a regular bed!
