Fear of Laundry

Fear of Laundry

I don’t know anyone who intentionally LOVES doing the laundry in their life, be it for their self or for their loved ones, and goodness forbid they enjoy doing it for an employer of theirs. But there it is. Laundry. And it has to be done! The designer of the subject matter contained in this post: the “Laundring” laundry machine, has some information of rather more important than just -having to do it- concern, and thus says that’ll be taken care of by this lovely concoction!

Users can configure the power strip with as many or as few outlets required. And that’s about it…get adding and detaching, now will ya!

Best Of Two Watch Worlds

Best Of Two Watch Worlds

Men are greedy and want only the best, so Designer Josh gives into their whims, by designing a classy Digital Analog Watch. The watchface hosts a modern digital display but still functions like a traditional analog watch. Details like date, day of the week, AM/PM are focused to the center. The AM/PM option switches to the seconds counter and a magnetic wrist band secures the watch around the wrist. Josh is all smiles coz his design has been picked by Cadence Watch Company and will go into production soon. Bravo!

Chaos in Clothes Hanging

Chaos in Clothes Hanging

Hello outlines! This is the hanger you’ve got to have. It’s fanciful! It’s just a riot. It plays on the chaos of clothing hanging on a chair. For really. The form this design takes is that of a clothing hanger or a human shoulder. It’s called the “Siluet.” They’re for organizing or throwing clothing about (on top.) Store your clothings up on this.

A Bike Who Hates Lowriding

A Bike Who Hates Lowriding

Lemme do a quiz on you, bikers. How well do you love gravity? Not? I really hate it man, it’s terrible. So here’s the thing: you’re in luck. There’s a bike right here that defies it. Like a standard rebel. It’s called “Flying Bike” and it’s quite the magnetic levitator. By using the impetus of the bicycle, power is generated and magnetism brings the back of the bike up, up, up, until the gear is literally in the center of the back wheel, unconnected by anything other than the powers of the magnet.

Is it One Chair, or is it More?

Is it One Chair, or is it More?

There is more! But there is also one. It is like a spore. A good spore! As the designer Jie-Jyun Lyu says, those who live in a small apartment like to have few pieces of furniture. But when too many people come over, you’ve gotta have more! So you need an amazing chair device such as this, one that’s both a single chair, but a bunch of shoot-off chairs that work just as nicely as the original. But with less bumps.

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.
