This is Pants Seat

This is Pants Seat

Is it a side table? No! Well kind of. Is it a stool? No! Well actually you can sit on it, too. But what is it? Simple. It’s a book container! And it looks just like pants! Why would someone do that? Well, let me tell you! They want to make us (you and me) wear pants everywhere! Even in our own homes. That’s insane! But let me tell you, these pants wont rip.

Map Hole Points The Way

Map Hole Points The Way

Map Hole is a new road guidance tool designed to direct pedestrians and travelers to their final destination using existing elements in the urban landscape. It locates the pedestrian with a starting point and provides information on the exact distance or average walk time to the listed landmarks. It sounds intriguing but I feel like I need a cartography degree to understand it. If this were real, you might just enter a city full of confused people looking down at the ground.

Three Little Pigs

Three Little Pigs

They’re not pigs at all. They’re a mobile, wireless projector and speaker set called Polpettek. Say that 10x fast. The anthropomorphic flavor is supposed to be more inviting and blend in better as objects of design rather than electronic equipment. The little speakers have magnetized feet so if you wanted to stack them into one large multichannel speaker – you can. There’s no info regarding specs but the designer’s last name is Alessi (no relation). Uncanny tho. It would fit right in their product line.

Awesome Cuteness In A Cup

Awesome Cuteness In A Cup

On the lookout for something super cute, delicate yet functional to add to your walls? I’ve found you the right stuff! Hookmaker Teacups add grace where it is lacking; it holds your knickknacks and trinkets, and has a hook for you to hang your keys. I’d like to hang a bunch of these together, just for their dramatic effect.

Crank Up Some Lights This Time

Crank Up Some Lights This Time

You do recollect the Crank Up Battery, right? Close on heels to that concept is this Eco – Twinkle Light. Just like how you would crank up the battery or simply sharpen a pencil, you rotate Twinkle’s handle to charge it up. Twinkling fairy lights with loads of imaginary fairy dust, sparkle up this gem of an idea!

Colors For Cooking

Colors For Cooking

Coral is this elegant pan that you can use for cooking and serving, but unlike the rest of the gang, this one comes coated with thermochromic spots. The pale blue dots turn into bright orange beauties, as the temperature of the pot increases. The handles on the pan comes off easily, thanks to the plug-spring system used. This ways you get to cook safely and efficiently and then slide off the pan-handle and serve right away!

Grilly Willy

Grilly Willy

Yes! This is a grill by one of the longest-winded design team names in the business, or at least that I’ve ever seen: Liebschaften Möbelgestaltung. They’ve made this lovely little grill and have titled it “Longgrill.” It’s the missing link between grill and fire bowl! One simple slider’s all it took, all it takes, all it will take when you’re out camping like a real trooper!

Minimalistic Water Pipe

Minimalistic Water Pipe

We’re in an age of utter simplicity. This is what is good, this is what is right in design. Design something that works and something that is bare down to the bones, and you’ve got something beautiful. Design a simple and functional water pipe, and you’ve got a real winner! This horizontal Middle Eastern water pipe is the first product in the “White” series of simplicity by TRIBUDESIGN. Such a lovely aesthetic!

Cups for Conscience

Cups for Conscience

I always enjoy a good cup of facts! What have a just drunk? You should always ask yourself that. Or what have I got the opportunity to drink, here? You’d be wiser to ask. Our pal Hans A Huseklepp teams up with two other designers to bring you this lovely set of ceramic tableware for Milan Expo 2015.

Facts of the world.

Going On A Carbon Diet

Going On A Carbon Diet

Eco2 Widget is a mobile and desktop app to get your carbon eating habits under control. Sure you don’t gain weight from carbon but you do harm the Earth and we all agree – the Earth is in dire need of a carbon diet. Like all diets, it requires a lifestyle change. The Eco2 widget not only monitors carbon affluents between all your devices but also educations and recommends little things you could do to help Earth get slimmer cleaner. There’s even a reward system built-in for digital money and to plant trees.

Powered By Trash

Powered By Trash

A lamppost powered by trash seems like a strange idea but if you think about the ratio between city trash and energy needs – things start to make sense, kinda. This lamppost composts trash and uses the methane byproduct as a fuel to power the lamps. The compost can then be retrieved to re-green our cities. I like the idea but it’s not clear how much trash is needed to keep such a system going.

Do Jiggy To Get Sterile

Do Jiggy To Get Sterile

Toothbrushes! Only Sterile Toothbrushes…I promise! The deal is that some folks think it’s high time we had a system to sterilize toothbrushes as they are a breeding ground for some awful Bacteria. One of the ways suggested is to somehow harness our 700 stokes (if you brush for 3 minutes) to kinetic energy, which in turn powers the UV LED in the toothbrush to do some Bacteria zapping. To cut the chase, use Shake Toothbrush, jiggy = dry, sterile toothbrush!
