Cars in Halfsies

Cars in Halfsies

When you’ve got a whole barrel full of money, that is, when you’re completely rich, you have the luxury of choosing your own ultra-fabulous car. And when you do, you want not only a beautiful interior and exterior, not only do you want a fabulously running car, you want it to say something! I don’t mean like knightrider, no, I mean you want it to be an expression of who YOU are. This is the Bentley “Jeckyll and Hyde.”

This Is Not Braille Rubik

This Is Not Braille Rubik

On two occasions we have showcased how to keep our blind friends entertained. It’s been Rubiks all this while, but if they crave something different then here is something more challenging; The Huarong! It’s an ancient Chinese game of intellectual toys which includes judgment of textures and sense of shapes. I wouldn’t want to dilute the explanation to the game, so I have left it intact for you to read in the accompanying pictures. Have a look….

Bubble Wash For Hands

Bubble Wash For Hands

Liquid soaps have taken over the sanitary scene with a vengeance, seldom you find people washing hands with a soap-cake. It’s the obvious choice even in public restrooms. However to provoke a conscientious mind, the trio designers have devised the Re-Bubble Soap Dispenser. It’s a dispenser meant for public toilets, where people bring in their old-not-so-sudsy-soaps and insert them into a grinding slot. Giving the discarded soaps a new lease of life, the granulated suds now offer you a hygienic wash in the swanky new liquefied bubbly avatar!

Coiled Up In The Dryer

Coiled Up In The Dryer

The hair dryer is a fine instrument and does its job well but its design has stagnated. What designers usually tackle is the form of the dryer and forget the hanging wire and its storage. Dryerhair is a blow-dryer that features an elongated backend….kinda like an extra housing space to coil in the wire. Although the form is pretty rigid, it’s a good design that makes it compact when storing in a cupboard or a drawer. People may question the heat of the blower affecting the tailending wire, but I doubt that’s much of a concern.

A Whole New Toast Direction

A Whole New Toast Direction

In what direction would you like your toast to come at ya from? Here at Yanko, we encourage the research of all directions of food, especially foods that at some point or another in their creation spews forth from its creator, in this case, the toast and the toaster. The “moolEdge” uses a system of sliding plates to create an environment in which hot fried breads can be created without the need for mechanic parts. Easy to work, easy to clean, easy to toast with.

Mister Tastee's Tricycle

Mister Tastee’s Tricycle

This right here is a solar powered cooling machine. It’s a cooling container that cyclists can use to store chilled products, made to work independent of any service supply. “The hotter the day, the cooler the ice cream.” Solar panels imbedded in a membrane, connected to solar charge regulators, using wires situated within the panels, generate around 35W on a sunny day. Keepin them cones cool with the power of the sun. Super poetic and scrumptious.

Presto Furniture Change-o!

Presto Furniture Change-o!

This project goes by the name “ReStyle.” It is not a singular bit a furniture, but a collection which goes together, comes apart, works together, and works apart. It flips and floops and turns and sits in any number of configurations limited only by your own mind (and in some cases, the physical universe). What will you do with such a system of objects? Basically everything? Or will you set it one way and use it that way forever? It is a journey for a strong furniture loving heart.

Prism + Magnets = Pens

Prism + Magnets = Pens

Denis Klimovich has designed this delightful stationery set for all you lovely people! A stack of pens that have a magnetic appeal to cling as a cluster, shining like a bright star! Fountain pen, pencil, stylus and ballpoint, bundled together for your writing needs. Although the form kinda reminds me of the triangular Faber Castel pencils, the uniqueness lies in the entire cluster being held together with the magnet. No apparent reason for that, it’s just that sometimes we need to add a dash of the unconventional to make something stand out.

The Strangest Skateboard Table

The Strangest Skateboard Table

Of all the skateboard deck and skateboard sport related furniture I’ve seen in all my years of seeing such things in my line of work, I have never, ever, seen something so wild as this. This is the strangest, wildest, most wacky piece of skateboard furniture I have ever seen. It tops both the categories of skateboard related AND skateboard constructed (meaning there’s skateboard parts included) furniture. Tops. Wild.

All Your Furniture are Slot

All Your Furniture are Slot

Designer Niclas Waldorf Slot would like to give you an idea of what’s going on in his head and his studio. His line of work centers around a collection called “Slot Futniture.” The example we use here is the “3 in 1″ table, a table which revolves around, as you can imagine, three ideas. Those ideas in a nutshell are timelessness, multi-functionality, and flat-packaging. It’s completely slot-tastic.

The Truth Inside Design Objects

The Truth Inside Design Objects

I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for objects that transform from one thing into a completely different thing. Transformers, if you will. Designer Rohan Chhabra has a few objects that do that, and not only that, they’ve got some philosophy behind them too. This set of objects goes by the name “Embodying Ethics.” You’ll find yourself getting emotional witnessing the change between a pair a pants a cow leg. For real.

Chopper Scooter, I'm Totally Serious

Chopper Scooter, I’m Totally Serious

If scooters are too passe for your bad boy, Jesse James lovin’ ego, check out this Chopper Scooter. The motorized mover was designed with linear lines and flowing shapes in mind – anything to hide it’s true identity. Great way to bring up those kids and get them all indoctrinated into the culture.
