Single Sheet of Folded Metal

Single Sheet of Folded Metal

Who loves single sheets of folded metal!? Everyone here should be raising their hand, because metal is awesome, and folding metal is amazing, and using one piece of metal where usually there’d be at least 3 or 4, well that’s just super. Designer Tobias Labarque folded the heck out of this metal right here and he made the TLF03ALU, a cantilever-type chair made of a single perforated aluminum plate.

Printing A Road

Printing A Road

The Road Printer is a device that can be used to print road-signs directly onto the road surface. As opposed to the tedious job of hand-painting the signs, this device looks at making the task easier and precise. A set of templates like Stop, U Turn, Bus, Arrow Signs etc. are pre-programmed into the device and are jet-sprayed to the surface. The menu buttons are large enough to endure a boot or a push from your fingers. A solar panel on the top-end helps in charging the thang.

Measuring Babies

Measuring Babies

Babies being babies will not stay still just because you want to measure their progress in height. They are going to squirm, scream and do everything possible, when you take that tape measure from head-to-foot! This is why I simply adore the Baby Measuring Crib Fitted Sheet. It looks to be this fun, non fussy way of marking your baby’s growth progress. The graphics on this sheet reflect an accurate measuring scale. What’s more, it’s printed on 100% cotton with environmentally friendly ink. Totally Baby-friendly!

Wind-Powered M6 Speedster

Wind-Powered M6 Speedster

This right here is a wind-powered car. It has three wheels, a giant fin on the back, and inside this post there’s a pretty lady standing next to it. Now, that’s pretty impressive by itself. But! What else is there? There’s a sweet paint job, Formula 1 carbon composite body parts, rudder, wings, and a direct current motor that converts small wind into momentum!

Hardcore Pans

Hardcore Pans

These pans (and pots) are so hardcore. But. The thing this project is about is the handles. Designer Valera Barnayev whipped these fantastic handles up in collaboration with industrial designers from Calphalon Cookware. Designed from handle-up, these bits of wood/metal/plastic were made for those homes that display more than use.

LATTEA Design Contest – Coffee Cup Gets Personal

LATTEA Design Contest – Coffee Cup Gets Personal

A lot can happen over a cup of coffee. Being a design addict I still treasure this disposable coffee cup I was served in once. It’s got this interesting Victorian painting depicted on it and it looks simply awesome. Would you believe me, if I told you that it was bought off a vendor at the airport? That’s the power of great design! If you have the flair for  design, then you MUST take part in the LATTEA Design Contest. It’s where you get to design an exclusive LATTEA Glass and WIN 2000 €!

Ohh and Ahh!

Ohh and Ahh!

The chair you’ve about to witness unfold is called the “O&O.” Now, don’t be fooled! It has nothing to do with cookies. In fact, it’s got such a wide cushion, I’d wager eating cookies aboard it might not be the best idea. This chair, designed and prototyped by Kataoka Design Studio, is made to just barely hold the user above their toes-touch-ground level, but low enough to keep comfort!

You can bicker about its form, specs and sensibilities later, but first lemme give you the details on this awesome HTC evolve. It’s a concept tablet computer that features a “concave side” ergonomic body design. It Features a stylus pen that will help to draw and execute renders in a practical and efficient way, especially if you use programs like Alias Sketchbook pro or Adobe Photoshop. An extra OLED touch screen with pre-programmable buttons pops out from the left side of the tablet, adding to the functionality.

Car, I Transform Thee: Chair!

Car, I Transform Thee: Chair!

I command all bits of human-made matter to transmogrify into other bits of human made matter! First, I choose you, car, change yerself into a chair! I shall call thee, “ChAiR!” Get it? Both words. This chair right here was indeed designed with the car design process in mind. Take a peek at the different iterations and decide if you’d set these in your lobby, living room, or garage.

A Light, a Mobile, a Hanger

A Light, a Mobile, a Hanger

It, all of those, all of those together, they’re called “Lihamo!” Get it? It’s the first two letters of all those words together! Designer Cho Hyung Suk took a single piece of material and basically perforated it to create a tri-fecta! Dissembled, this project creates a hanging mobile – also a hanger system for clothing, and a giant lamp!

A Shift In Refrigeration

A Shift In Refrigeration

The concept behind the Shift Refrigerator is to save energy by minimizing the outflow of cool air. What it wants us to do is use a smaller compartment in the big fridge, on a regular basis. It will be trough this special door that you put your most used food items. The funda being, that when the refrigerator door is opened, cool air flows out and warm air flows in according to how wide the door was opened, resulting in increased use of electric power.
