Four Straight Boxes and One Crooked One

Four Straight Boxes and One Crooked One

This is anything you want it to be. This thing right here is called “Twisted.” It’s a console table. It’s a wall mounted display cabinet. It’s a Vertical Bookshelf. It’s a space rocket! -wait, wait, it’s not a space rocket. But it could be if you put cats in it! And it all comes down to that one box. That one, crooked box. That box makes the whole world go haywire.

Projection in Orbit!

Projection in Orbit!

You communist! You love projectors too. It’s been 52 years since the former USSR launched Sputnik. In celebration of the fabulous designtastic shape of the Sputnik, and due to the meaning of Sputnik: “traveling companion,” this entertainment companion is sure to get your eyeballs and mind straight into outer space – tout de suite! It’s a projector with a cuteness!

Entertainment's Future is to Sit on

Entertainment’s Future is to Sit on

Adric Henkel’s go the future of public furniture and home entertaining all figured out right here with a single seat. It’s what basically amounts to a projector and an image collecting seat back – the simplicity of the concept’s where this shines hard. Henkel sees a future where furniture is interactive on a whole new level. Uncontrollable and wild images on the backs of chairs is just the beginning.

Switches That Barge Out Of The Walls

Switches That Barge Out Of The Walls

Adding a dash of retro to modern functionality is always fun. Sometimes you get eccentric fashion like these Switchplate Covers that pop inches off the walls. Quirky and appealing all the same, they are ideal for someone like my mom who always has a lack of surfaces to display her crystals and knick-knacks.

Double Crossing Tap

Double Crossing Tap

I wonder why no one thought of this before; what the Cycle-Basin is proposing here is very simple. Depending upon what you use the tap water for, you decide whether the gray water can be recycled or not, and then accordingly use the bottom tap to drain out the water into a bucket or let it go down the drain…literally. If you’re cleaning up some veggies, then naturally you can recycle that water for watering your plants. Get the drift?

Bicycle Built For The Dutchess

Bicycle Built For The Dutchess

Any woman who gets to ride this beauty called Cannondale Dutchess, is gonna be wearing a broad grin on her face. A classy dame with sufficient innovations to make an impact, this cycle is more than what Daisy could have asked for! Speaking of innovations, here’s what it’s got: The rear fender acts is a structural part of the frame and allows the carrier to hold up to 50kgs of weight. An arch connects the bicycle from the handlebars to the tail light, enhancing the visual appeal of this traditional Old Dutch bicycle.

How to Present like a Pro!

How to Present like a Pro!

One skill many designers should often work on is presentation. Designers of all levels can always benefit from a little more jazz in their presentations.

Don’t know about you guys, but imagining my audience naked never worked for me!  The thing to note about presentations is that it is not just about standing up in front of an audience or spending nights rehearsing, presentations are really all about communication. It is about getting your point across in a clear and concise manner.

Spice Rack Grind Deluxe!

Spice Rack Grind Deluxe!

It’s not called that. Spice Rack Grind Deluxe is what I’m going to be calling MY spice rack. The one you’re viewing here is called the “Vue” system. It’s one of those things that I know you love more than anything else: a spice rack! Only this time, the rack isn’t just a rack. The rack is the proud holder of seven, (count them!,) seven container/grinders for your entire needs-grinding spice fantasy life!

Another Hygiene Standard Flow

Another Hygiene Standard Flow

From Docta Ecological Consciousness. What! What! Representing the flexible bathroom environment. Word up. Really though, look at this bathroom. It’s called “Another Bathroom” and it’s designed by Felipe Ribon. It’s just fabulous. The questions it asks are how we could keep high hygiene standards in a flexible bathroom environment, and ALSO enjoy it with ecological consciousness? Harsh limits!

What Time is it? It's Time to Refill

What Time is it? It’s Time to Refill

Marty! It’s time to turn your clock back upside right. This is a wristwatch that’s got two titles. Alternates, if you will: one is “Liquid Time” while the alternative is “From Nowhere to Nowhere.” And as you may have guessed, this wristwatch has a clever little take oh how the 5th dimension TIME works.

Classy Water Stopper

Classy Water Stopper

When I first spied the WaterStoppingWater, it felt like déjà vu, simply because it has this uncanny resemblance to the DROPPA carafe by Ozgur Onal. Now I’m not going to get in to the bickering of who inspires who; the bottom line is that WaterStoppingWater has a very fluid design and represents a sink stopper in a very chic way.

Camping With Consciousness

Camping With Consciousness

It’s all hunky-dory to go camping with a trailer till you need to get to the cleaning part. From what I know, very few really enjoy cleaning up the sewage and trash that they generate on the spot (unless you opt for a trailer park where amenities are available). The other alternative can be tugging on the C3 Hotel Cube that takes care of your every comfort. A mobile hotel with sewage storage option, so that you can do the cleaning up later… after the party is over!
