Squids and Seashells For My Faucet

Squids and Seashells For My Faucet

I know this sounds very funny but what can I say… the aQuatica Faucet has been inspired by sea creatures. Honestly, it does resemble a mini sculpture when not in use and expands elaborately to become this work-of-art faucet. A dramatic departure from the drab ones we see off the shelf, but I promise you…the cleaning lady’s not gonna like cleaning this!

Into The Dark

Into The Dark

That’s where most tablet-like designs guessing at the look and specs of what’s now revealed to be the iPad. But I say to you in great defiance: not this one! This one shall gather a bit of light still! It was conceived before that faithful unveiling day, and its ideas shall be carried on until fruition! I give to you this! The MacView, as designed by Patrycjusz Brzezinski, queller of the hoards of maddened Apple fans.

Hanging Books Are My Buddies

Hanging Books Are My Buddies

I’m very possessive about the books I own and very rarely lend them. I’d much rather display them on a bookshelf them hide them in cupboards. The Slim Book Case fits in perfect to any home or office environment and suits those who love exhibiting their collection. Sounds perfect for me! Adding a unique touch to your wall décor, the only flip side is that in the Slim version you can show off only 10-12 books (in 8 slots) at a time and the Demi Slim holds only 4-6 books (in the 4 slots).

Printing With A Pencil Stub

Printing With A Pencil Stub

So you don’t want to join  pencil stubs and make a long pencil. No worries, we have another alternative, how about using them to print on paper. Yes, like a printer that uses pencil to print your documents. Traditional don’t you think? I feel the concept gets even more radical because it proposes the use of eraser to erase off mistakes! Do I hear my office scream in delight; no more cartridge woes!

I’m Totally Confused Between Digital And Analogue

I’m Totally Confused Between Digital And Analogue

This is the mish-mash of a Digital And Analogue Clock and aptly named the same. Typically digital clocks represent time in ciphers and analogue clocks indicate time using angles. Seen here is a concept that portrays the transformation of digital clock into analogue, when the numerals become blocks that display the time. These instants when the location of the blocks is changing can be explained as analogue concept. Hmmm, interesting…but do you think so as well?

The Red Stool

The Red Stool

This is a red stool that you and I and everyone else can get behind. It’s a red stool that’s nice, neat, and ain’t gonna fall down on ya when you’re sittin (or even standin on it.) It’s called the Nido and it’s designed by one Eva Marguerre. It’s meant to look fragile, it’s built to be tough. And at 900 grams, Marguerre’s claim of “light as a feather” isn’t far off.

We Are The Living Room... We Are The Future

We Are The Living Room… We Are The Future

We are the furniture! Actually there can be only one. This project is called “I Am Furniture” and it asks not what furniture is, but what it could be. What makes something a definitive bit of furniture? Design Studio VRAAY says it could be quite a few things – plug. and. play. Big fat heaters for chairs.

Noah's Construction Remix

Noah’s Construction Remix

Designed by 2-B-2 Architecture to be a reflection of the Biblical story of Noah and the Ark. To describe it, 2-B-2 chooses a refuge on the top of Mount Ararat in Turkey. This refuge consists of two levels. First is the entrance and parking for over 1000 cars. This area spills over unto the human areas, allowing avoidance of cheerless urban landscape and prevents the strong heating of the vehicles.

Sleep Tight My Love

Sleep Tight My Love

Just a pillow to lay my head to rest on, ah if only life were that simple! Sometimes we need to indulge in hoodwinking practices to rest our minds and body, fool them with external forces. The Pillow’s Degree Celsius falls prime into this category. It’s got heating, massager, aroma dispenser and solar charging options. All for the benefit of a good night’s sleep! Counting sheep and meditation be damned!

Lighter Side Of Sketching

Lighter Side Of Sketching

One of the features that designers are going to sorely miss in the iPad is sketching straight onto the tablet. Many of us anticipated this element to be included, but sadly it’s not. So it’s back to the basics of getting back to pen and paper…or if you’d much rather fancy a Computer Notebook! Notebook Sketchbook it is!
