Totally Oinked By The Coink!

Totally Oinked By The Coink!

One of the most effervescent styles in personalized banking is the trusty Piggy Bank. Some have it for real Dimes ’n Dollar savings; others keep it for pure novelty reasons. I for one, could never manage to save a single penny; yes I’m guilty of being a spendthrift! So if you’re still into home savings or want to teach your kids how to; this ceramic COINK Piggy Bank is the way to go. Its neatness-quotient comes from the wide mouth that allows you to empty your pockets faster; withdrawals are also from that same wide mouth!

It’s All About Picturesque Music

It’s All About Picturesque Music

If listening to music isn’t soothing enough, then how about teaming it with some nature-scape? The Sound Scape system does just that. The system beams out relaxing images (via the LED projector located in the circle) of clouds, water and other “nature-beauty” stuff. The size of the projected image can be customized via the sensor parameters that accompany the system. Basically it focuses on making you happy with visual treats, when you play some music.

Modular Living On Barcelona’s River

Modular Living On Barcelona’s River

The focus of this project is to have happy homes across the fluvial surroundings of Barcelona. Self-efficient loft units measuring 45m2 that are solar-powered and completely energy self-efficient, look pleasant enough to dot the landscape. The basic premise is to use one single multi-purpose open space which gets partitioned into the kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom and a deck. It has a studio apartment vibe, albeit on the river. Proposed to be sold at 80.000 € / unit, it’s a playground for the rich and famous!

When DuPont Corian Married Fashion

When DuPont Corian Married Fashion

In the wicked mind of designer James Thompson, this marriage is the perfect platform to explore the possibilities of fashion accessories, namely rings and awesome pendants. The unlikely twist comes in the form of titanium as the metallic base. Hand crafted and a far cry from the Haoshi X Rings that Long Tran reviewed, tell me which ones are more your style? The Black Badger or the Haoshi X?

Chairs from Space

Chairs from Space

Welcome to chairs… in… space! This bit of furniture is called “Invasion Chair” and it’s designed by none other than Jean-Jacques Jungers for MT4 Architects. It’s from space. It’s meant to investigate the limits between “abstraction, figuration, and functionality.” For the greatness of Surrealism. Colorful, changeable cushions, two different sizes (child and adult), and an alien physique make for a rather dream-invading seat.

Get Hexy

Get Hexy

Welcome to the nest. It’s not a bird’s nest. It’s a nest for hexes. And when I say hexes I mean lights. Made in order to remind the user of home, where the heart is, where one can truly relax. Like a home whose components are all plug-and-play, the frame acts as the gopher holes, and the hexagon-shaped lights like the gophers. But hanging from the ceiling. And each hole makes the bulb burn brighter.

Radiator Mug For Cold Hands

Radiator Mug For Cold Hands

There is a reason why this coffee mug is called the Radiator Mug, the bottom fins (called heat sinks) take inspiration from the radiator mechanics found within the PC or an engine, to keep things cool. Likewise these ceramic fins eliminate the need for a handle and keep your hands cool while holding a steaming cuppa coffee/tea.

Only Photogenic Pictures Please

Only Photogenic Pictures Please

At times it’s the photographer’s fault that your picture came out weird and at times you’re plain ugly! Ha! So scrutinize and be in control over which picture of yours is groovy… So, Are you camera-shy? Not with this funky digital camera that has two separate sections, one is the Lens part and the other the screen. Both stick together via magnets, but when someone wants to click pictures, the screen part detaches and is kept with the subject and the clicked shot comes over to the screen via wireless USB.

Happy Rested Feet

Happy Rested Feet

One of the coolest things you can do for your feet is to pamper them. A little bit of TLC never hurt. This is why we have been cajoling you folks to rest them a while on the Webble Active Footrest or better still treat them to a good massage. I’m sure there is no dearth of good foot massagers in the market, but the Foot Massager by designer Xiaoxsi has taken my fancy because it’s modeled similar to the Webble, only difference is the two counter-rotating massagers and heating options.

Un Capsize Able

Un Capsize Able

The indestructible car! Inconceivable! As one might think, there’s no real such thing as a completely safe way of auto-mobiling around the Earth. That goes double, triple, 10x as much for people who use rally racing as an excuse to drive insanely fast around a treacherous death trap of a track. But there’s such a thrill! That’s why designers are here to design safety measures for the crazy at heart. What’ve we got here? Impact resistance, a self-righting system, and pit climbing features.
