The O+ Music Campaign

The O+ Music Campaign

From what I’ve learnt, marketing is all about how make a product get noticed and grab media attention in the shortest possible span of time. An effective campaign can either be subtle, the get-under-your-skin kinds or be totally in-your-face. In the music industry it’s the latter route that finds much success, which is why flamboyance and distinctiveness is a part of the game. The O+ Promotional Media Package is just that! Ideal for single song releases and candid promos, the kit includes music access via a vinyl record, compact disc, USB flash drive and as an iTunes Download Code, bundled together.

Zipped Tight Seat

Zipped Tight Seat

This seat is the one you buy if you want everyone to say – “where did you get such a chair, such a completely unique and wild chair?” You want people to say that, right? You’re that kind of wacky fellow or lady, correct? Lemme tell you all about this chair “Zipfred.” It’s made of cable ties, 6 wooden elements, and 20 layers of cardboard. The cable ties hold the entire chair together solid, the entire structure in its final form looking like you bought it directly out of a modern art museum fancy shop.

Boards of The Living Dead

Boards of The Living Dead

Inspired by author Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein story, designer Tlalit Segal Raayoni presents a set of wood furniture brought back from the dead, made to further our understanding of both the living and the not-so-alive trees in our world. Dr. Frankenstein wanted to understand the so-called “essence” of life and death, and to do this, combined the two – creating a strange beast, like yet unlike either of the two. So too is this new tiny collection “Vision of Dry Boards.” Behold the excellence of resurrected scraps of wood, put together and given the breath of new life.

Earcushions!

Earcushions!

Earos provides a convenient padding to your ear when you use it with your mobile phone. It fastens to any phone and even doubles up as display stand, when used in reverse position. A convenient fastener hooks it up to most phone models. It rotates on two axes, so that the ear pad can be repositioned in a jiffy, allowing access to the display. Its looks to be a comfortable addition to the phone, especially if you are the sorts to talk on it for long. Ears really tend to heat up fast, and Earos can be a good barrier!

It’s All About The Double-faced Pan!

Flip your pancakes or stir fry some veggies, shallow fry or cook some pasts, the versatile 2 in 2 L Pan allows you to do some much more! Laying it flat on its wide base makes it function like a normal pan, but using the indented narrow side allows you to whip up gourmet delights that require some frying. Totally love its space-saving attitude, and I’m already saving a hook for it in my kitchen!

Ultimate Music Streaming Experience, Sonos S5 Review

Ultimate Music Streaming Experience, Sonos S5 Review

I’ve spent the past two months with my Sonos S5 and have concluded it provides the best music streaming experience to date. I’m no newbie to the marvels of wireless music but my audio ecosystem was split up between what iTunes could handle and what my PS3 could stream. The Sonos S5 brings everything from my personal music library to external sources like Pandora, SIRIUS, and internet radio into one neat high fidelity package.

The following is a short exploration of three separate bits of furniture from the fabulous design group known as “At-Once!” The objects we’re about to look at go by the name Glorify, Diamond, and Dinoz, being an armchair, a table, and a desktop accessory, respectively. Each of these items is meant to represent a feeling of greatness: the armchair being of royal essence, the table being cut with the recollection of classically carved furniture that was precious stone studded, and the Dinoz is pure fun – being made for anything from Chia-pet garden enjoyment to artist-minded pencil holder.

Salt for Illumination

Salt for Illumination

Designer Roberto Tweraser has taken that fantastically tasty bit of seasoning you put on everything from spaghetti to soup and turned it into a set of fabulous looking lamps! That’s right, sea salt! Combining only sea salt and a synthetic binder, Tweraser creates here a shade for pendant lamps that are smooth on the outside, unfinished on the in. Unfinished on the inside so that the refractory properties of the salt from the sea can be seen! Such a lovely usage of a naturally beautiful thing!

HTC Diamond 3 (but not made of them)

HTC Diamond 3 (but not made of them)

Through two iterations of the Diamond series, and there hasn’t been a nary of “diamond-esque” qualities to the lineup. The unique carved back of the original Diamond was the closest we ever got, so designer Sylvain Gerber envisaged a design worthy of the gem’s brilliance; the Diamond 3. Android equipped with the latest tech hardware but the “shine” is really in the case. You could blind someone with this bling.
