Rolling Bundle To Park Your Tushy

Rolling Bundle To Park Your Tushy

Although intended for small apartments that demand functional furniture, I don’t see why we can’t include the Zip-Up Chair in mansions. I love the simple methodology used in wrapping up a bundle of oversized upholstered swabs; and encasing them in a zipper sleeve. Zip open, turn down a few swabs and park your posterior onto an impromptu stool. Kitsch and comfy!

Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

With Samsung and company outing 3D televisions for home viewers and China loving 3D newspapers, it’s not too farfetched to picture the technology being used in laptops and mobile phones. Focusing on the use of 3D in cellphones, Petr Kubik has designed this all-in-one-piece that includes the glasses, intuitive stylus and expandable screens. The 3D apps support 3D movies and camera plus allow you to make surreal calls with family and friends that pop outta the screen!

Big Boat Dragovic Yacht

Big Boat Dragovic Yacht

With a name like Vuk Dragovic, one doesn’t need to go very far to find a unique name for any sort of design they’ve made and need to name. However! Dragovic does also happen to be a world-class name-creator too, so the concept you’re about to look at goes by the name “Atreides Yacht” and lives up to the elegance of the letters that title it. And it’s got some radical innovation on it’s side too, hooray! And not just in the greener section of things. It’s got a fully extendable shallow pool that shoots out the back.

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

It’s that time again. It’s time for the Mac. The dude who keeps coming hard with the strangest, wildest, most fantastically cool looking conceptual designs on such a regular basis that I can’t believe he doesn’t already work for a super secret design corporation run by time traveling aliens from outer space. Wait. I’m getting a message from Mac. He can see what I’m typing and is telling me to hush up! Oh jeez! Better just talk about this new design – “Dew”, it’s a conceptual mobile communication device that works in three dimensional projection space.

Glassy Mc Teatipper

Glassy Mc Teatipper

That’s what I’d name this project if I had the idea first. But I didn’t. So you know who gets to name it? Designer Antonia Haaf gets to name it, and name it good: “Tea Time Joe.” It’s what he calls a new concept in teatime, that being a tippy kind of teatime. Just put your teawater and leaves in one end, let the magic happen, and get to tipping! The straining happens in the middle through a fabulous removable strainer. Will you go big, or will you go cup-sized?

A Rule For A Man's Man

A Rule For A Man’s Man

Well here’s something clever and that means I want it! The Leather Ruler works just like any other except there’s a large piece of supple leather to provide the weight and traction necessary when drawing those important straight lines. When you’re done, just roll it up and throw it in your pack. If it seems unnecessary then let us not forget MUJI makes a crap load of money selling items just like this. People would definitely buy it.

Solar Energy, Band-Aids and The iPad

Solar Energy, Band-Aids and The iPad

Those kooky but fun Korean design gurus are at it again. You’d be surprised how hefty the iPad is and that smooth surface is just begging to slip out of sweaty hands so the Band are band-aids you stick all over the back of the iPad to create traction. A little too kooky for ya? How about the Solar Panel Bag – yes a backpack with solar cells arranged into Steve Jobs’ favorite fruit. Let the whole world know you’re an Apple fan.

Obsession With Sputnik!

Obsession With Sputnik!

Sputnik on Yanko Design has a deeper meaning than just the space satellite. Hit the “Sputnik” button and you’ll find two lamps and a projector already featured here.

Draining Experiences Can Be Cute!

Draining Experiences Can Be Cute!

Cleaning the toilet drain is quite a stinky job in my opinion, and can never be labeled as cute! However, a look at the delightful Carack Drain Design, and I’m sold. The cuteness factor is personified in the accompanying video, where once the drain is choked with your body grime and hair, a blue head bobs up and down to indicate – it’s un-clogging time! Another factor in its favor is the sunken drain-trap; it keeps the ghastly hair-strands out of sight.

A Lamp of Fireflies

A Lamp of Fireflies

This is a complicated lamp masked so well as a simple lamp, you might even think it’s graced with the magic of nature. This lamp is called “Geometric Romance”, also to be known as the Firefly’s Nest Lamp. What it appears to be: a globe of light, filled with nature’s fabulous, curious flies of light. What is is: a lamp filled with a fluid moved by a pump that moves electronic “fireflies”, powered by a wireless system located in the base, similar to a cellphone wireless charger.

Danger Alert Enabler

Danger Alert Enabler

A view of the ambient noise is what this device hopes to give people with less than a perfect sense of hearing. The fashionable bit of the Danger Alert Enabler, is the wristband, but it also comes with a “micro device.” The way these two bits work together is: sound goes in one, comes out the other. But as the micro device, which sits on your belt, hears sound, it interprets it and translates it to a corresponding pictogram and in some cases, a vibration for warning.
