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!

Malcolm Fontier Mojito Wallet Review

Malcolm Fontier Mojito Wallet Review

Only $20! I bet that caught your attention. It’s no joke. The Mojito Wallet is available at a reduced priced direct from Malcolm Fontier. If the name isn’t familiar – the company makes vegan (synthetic) leather soft goods with lots of style at a fraction of the price. Male readers can probably empathize with my wallet woes. I carry a bulky leather wallet big and heavy enough to change the way I walk. The Mojito is one of the slimmest wallets I’ve seen and for $20, there’s no competition around.

A Wally Oasis

A Wally Oasis

Thinking about how ecology plays a role in urban spaces is a re-emerging trend in design. The Symbiotic Green Wall takes the idea of wall beyond its dividing role. It provides a vertical system for an entire ecosystem to exist. The wall collects, purifies and redistributes water around the site using natural processes. A digital monitoring system sheds light on water usage and overall health. It even cleans itself with purified water. I would love to see more of these sculptural installations in big cities around the world.

So you’d like to relax in your bathroom. Seems pretty reasonable. Do you like flowers? That’s good, because that’s today’s solution to your relaxation problem, and it’s presented by 2-B-2 Architecture.

It's Called Jogging

It’s Called Jogging

Or yogging…apparently you just run. What is the exercise you speak of? You need to get your heart rate up. And not just with a tall glass of coffee. You’ve got to get out there and run around like crazy. But that wont work! You’ve got to have a nice healthy jog to get your body in shape. But your music doesn’t go with the feet moving! Until now! Clip the “Joggo” device on to your shirt and the headphones into your ears and the beats will be keeping you in check in no time flat.
