Not a Trash Ball

Not a Trash Ball

Nay! For we know that the much more appeasing term for a container of trash is, of course, the “Bin!” The project you are about to look at here is called the “Bin.Ball” because it is not only a bin, it’s a ball. And it’s made for using during the times when you happen to be having a ball too, as in, having a totally rockin time at a party. You’ve got to be bin-conscious! In these modern times of interior design perfection, you’ve got to think ahead, or rather, on your feet. Put that trash you’ve got in these big colorful balls!

Chocolate Is Sexy

Chocolate Is Sexy

Chocolate – it’s sensual, sexual, and delicious; known the world over for its mood altering properties and palette pleasuring sensibilities. We’re not supposed to play with food but Forplay is a concept near and dear to my heart. It explores the three main ways chocolate is enjoyed: licking, melting, and pouring. Ooh how scintillating!

Broken Bricks Makes Lego Dreams

Broken Bricks Makes Lego Dreams

Concrete is a valuable resource yet we burn thru it like it’s free air so companies around the world are looking for ways to make concrete “greener” and sustainable. Last week I heard about concrete made from hemp so the future is bright but what about all the concrete we have now? There is a solution. The Broken Bricks recycling machine turns any old concrete into new Lego-like bricks for use in numerous applications. It’s pretty well thought out and I’m sure our construction mavens would love to pile these life sized toys together.

Air Dried And Bacteria Free!

Air Dried And Bacteria Free!

One of the best and hygienic ways of drying the dishes is airing them. Nothing like some good old sunrays to do the job! Stackable Cups encourages this habit by featuring four projections that allow the water to drain out completely, when you stack glasses one-on-top-of-the-other. Stacked wet glasses generally stick to each other and pulling them apart can get tricky; so this design kinda resolves that issue too. Moreover, they make the set look kitsch!

Gum Disposal Done Right

Gum Disposal Done Right

If you get chewing gum stuck to something precious (clothes, shoes, hair etc.) then rub some ice to harden it and then scrape it off. The point is, you got chewing gum stuck to you because an irresponsible nutcase probably owns a bottle of chewing gum and had no handy paper around for proper disposal. The ingenious “Green Seeds” chewing gum bottle design addresses this issue and features a perforated paper-tape dispenser at the bottom of the bottle plus a temporary storage space for used gums.

Shoes of the Centipede

Shoes of the Centipede

Flex your toes in these bad boys, I tell you soccer players all over the world. Football players! I meant to say that. The ball is round, and you kick it across the field into the goal. That game. Put these shoes on for it. These are the Umbro “Centipax” shoes, a concept by Tobin Dorn. It’s an outsole design that absorbs the impact of everything using injected EVA and makes you fly above the ground with super speed. Lightweight, flex grooves in the heel, distribution of impact. Inspired by the creepiest crawliest insect in the world, the trillion legged centipede.

Sit on Sound

Sit on Sound

Available in your choice of a fabulous aluminum and brushed metal or GUNMETAL. Yes, you too can sit on sound. It’s the “Sound Lounge” from Sony! Actually a concept from non other than designer Sharifah Nasser, the sound blaster! This is a coffee table that is also a sound system. Depending on the house you’re in, they might not want you sitting upon it. Then again, you could happen upon it in the lobby or a record company, where they let you do whatever you like, just don’t steal the magazines.

Electricity Is A Dangerous Game

Electricity Is A Dangerous Game

Developing countries and emerging economies are facing challenges in properly distributing and building out their electric grids. Unfortunately energy needs are now being met by people running the black market and many are getting hurt. Some people have resorted to stealing it by creating their own makeshift access lines leaving a tangled and hazardous mess behind. The TUME concept solves these issues by creating a new infrastructure that can grow just as fast as demand.

JAWS Revisited As A Mouse

JAWS Revisited As A Mouse

One can never picture sharks as these tender loving creatures thanks to the Hollywood hangover! Maybe this is why I have a mental block for the Shark Mouse Concept. The designers are convincing in their presentation: recyclable thermoplast body, minimum contact with the surface for reduced friction, slender design and chic aesthetics…

Maybe I should picture this more as a Necklace CarpetShark than a Great White and get over my musophobia!
