Bright Green Plumage for Projection

Bright Green Plumage for Projection

Described by its creator as a large colorful bird which under its soft and sensual lines hides a treasure of technology – this is the “01 GIANT” Canon video projector. Designed by Jerome Olivet, this elegant beast is designed right beside a touch sensor remote called the “Racer” and a touch pad called “Stone,” both for Orange TV. You’ll see the similarities in the sculpted aesthetics immediately. One finds that when a fantastic look is acquired, one uses it in little ways throughout ones life.

Timed Organizer In A Book

Timed Organizer In A Book

In the day and age where electronic gadgets double up as reminders of tasks and appointments, I applaud Wonjune Song’s bold move to go back to the basics of pen and paper and of course the trusty old watch. Watch Diary is basically a book with a clock set in the middle of the page. The “red hand” indicates the current task, the “before hand” indicates past chores and the “forward hand” indicates the upcoming ones. A simple glance at the page and you’ll know if you’ve kept up your schedule or are lagging.

Pin Sprouts

Pin Sprouts

Tack-pins or metal push-pins have come a long way from their humble round-head-design. For the sake of convenience, the flat-round head has been given a “sprout” look here. Convenient to hold, push and pull!

Plant them in, or pull them out!

Ashes To Ashes; Odor To Perfume

Ashes To Ashes; Odor To Perfume

Light one and it can be the cause of your death, and I’ll light the other in your memory. Confused? Don’t be. What we have here is the Ashtray Incense Burner, a ceramic bowl that is an ashtray on the right-side, flip it and it becomes an incense stick holder. One spreads odor, the other fragrance. One is the smell of death, the other of life! Can’t do more poetic justice than this, dedicated to the smoker!

One Perfect Cup

One Perfect Cup

The Utopik Design Lab have done it! They’ve taken our entire collected evolution of cup-making and holding of drink history and combined it into one cup. One cup to hold them all. This is “One Glass for Every Drink” and it’s made to work for everyone. It of course tends to the four main glass-specific types of drink: water, cognac, wine, and champagne. It uses the same head and a different base for each of these. Sounds lovely doesn’t it? Let’s have a sip or two and converse.

iPad Wood

iPad Wood

Oh, to be held by a block of wood. The warm embrace of Mother Nature herself, all chopped down to a convenient size for us humanoids. Or in this case, us pieces of technological wonder. This is a stand for the iPad, the “Block22″ to be exact, and it’s mainly made of wood. Designers at Sherwood+Meister have created a masterpiece in simplicity and craftsmanship. Each piece is carved from a solid block of FSC-certified kiln-dried Ipe wood – a South American hardwood “prized for its enduring strength and density.” Ohh! Super fancy.

Wild Froggy Trike Action

Wild Froggy Trike Action

This is the wildest recumbent trike you will ever see in all your days. It’s got such a fury that you’ll probably rocket off right into space when you ride it. It’s got customizability to the max, fitting directly to your body shape and desire. This is the “OOPHAGA” and it’s got a frog for a logo, and chassis made of carbon fiber. The color combination is customizable, and so are the rims. There’s shock absorbers, removable headrest, and because of its totally analog setup, is completely eco friendly. Made for asphalt, but dares you to take it offroad.
