The Touch-less Tap

The Touch-less Tap

Are you one of those people who hates touching the faucet after you’ve washed your hands? Mind you, it’s a little OCD, but totally makes sense consider those handles are riddled with germs! The Timing Tap was designed for you. Unlike older models of push-button timed taps, this design’s digital display allows you to set the running duration  and even gives you a countdown of how long you have left to get rinsed. It’s cleaner, water-saving genius!

With Apple Watch building its focus on fitness, it’s kinda given that regular fitness gears should adapt to the Smartness revolution. Keeping in pace is the ‘Smart Rope’, which is a LED-embedded jump rope. It syncs with your smartphone, creating an “anywhere, anytime” fitness experience.

This e-Bike With Everything

This e-Bike With Everything

Designed with students in mind, this innovative e-Bike was created not just to satisfy getting from point A to point B, but to assist with everything in between. The concept is “electricity on your bike” versus your bike just being electric. Yes, it power-assists, but the detachable battery also houses your phone for navigation, serves as a peripheral power bank for your devices, and even doubles as a speaker so you can take your tunes with you on and off your ride!

Leaning Towards Modular

Leaning Towards Modular

With a very simple construction based on modularity, the Tilta bookcase is composed of 3 different elements that can be combined in variation to create functional shelving without sacrificing style. Units of different heights provide space for an assortment of different sized items. Its seemingly random, tilted supports give it a strong yet unimposing identity that blends easily in contemporary and classic setting alike.

A Better Extra Battery

A Better Extra Battery

The BETTER RE battery pack is so named because it’s not only better looking, but better for the environment! The design’s exterior aesthetic boasts an attractive combination of sleek wood and composite materials. What really sets it apart, however, is that it utilizes discarded phone batteries to provide supplemental power! A variety of upcycled batteries from different devices can be adapted and easily installed to the charger.

Household chores suck!

Household chores suck!

Which is why your dustbin should too. Bruno is a delightfully obvious trash can with an inbuilt vacuum. Forget your inefficient dust pan that takes forever to collect all your dust (and makes you a hunchback in the process). Just collect all your dust near Bruno’s mouth and it’ll lap it all up!

The New and Improved Gas Co.

The New and Improved Gas Co.

This original concept by Naser and Taher Nasiri was designed as an office space for a gas company. However abstract, the concrete and glass and steel facade immediately reflects the iconic piped aesthetic associated with refineries. As a tribute to the company’s greener endeavors and eco-awreness, you’ll also find exterior foral-like structures inspired by nature.

Game of Drones

Game of Drones

There are many drones on the market, but this might be the last one you need! The X-Drone features many of the top features that recreational and professional users alike will enjoy. Most noticeably is an exaggerated leg stance that not only doubles as prevention from horizontally running into trees, walls and other objects but aids in more stable landings. An internal battery system charges via USB, peripheral attachments are easily adapted/installed, and it has an optional built-in camera for photographers.

Scars Can Be Beautiful

Scars Can Be Beautiful

A cousin of the Black Scars Cabinet, the White Scars Console appears to have the same sordid past with its somewhat menacing, scarred surface. Like something out of a Tim Burton film, the design is both dark and playful. Despite its scarification, the handmade piece still looks handsome with white lacquered solid oak, copper legs and leather handles.

Solid Cold Rolling Pin

Solid Cold Rolling Pin

I’m fond of making pies and one of the biggest challenges with rolling the choux pastry dough is maintaining a smooth, clean base despite the heavy butter incorporation. Crafted from anodized aluminum and refrigerated to the perfect temperature, this chilled Rolling Pin helps roll out the perfect size crust thanks to the laser engraved graduated measurements. Marked both in both inches and millimeters, the slick non-stick surface keeps the dough cold and easy to roll.

Book Review: 360° Industrial Design

Book Review: 360° Industrial Design

Someone rightly said that success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. This kind of consistent success is something I have witnessed first hand with Emami Design, headed by Arman Emami. Last year, at the Red Dot Awards Night in Singapore, I had the pleasure of speaking with him, and my only questions to him was … how do you manage to win these many accolades every year! The answers can be found in his latest book: 360° Industrial Design.
