Sticky Carpool Window Clingys

Sticky Carpool Window Clingys

A carpool concept for a perfectly trusting world. That’s what this is. Our designers here, Gwang Hoon Lee, Chan Il Jung, have concocted a simple window-sticky device that displays statistics about the contents of the vehicle it inhabits. It shows availability, maximum number of passengers, destination, and ETD estimated time of departure. Sound just fine to you?

Are You Levitating Your Globe

Are You Levitating Your Globe

Still not mastered that art? Something wrong with your magnetic field I suppose! But rest assured this Levitating Globe won’t let you down by losing its magnetism and rolling off. Simply because the built-in computer chip at the base of the unit, constantly keeps adjusting to atmospheric changes, ensuring that the globe remains suspended. Quite neat! It comes with a US 120V power supply and spins real neat even when levitating!

Super Sexy Bathroom

Super Sexy Bathroom

It’s always about the future, and in the future you guys are going to realize the need of doubling up your interior spaces by adding more than one function to a room. Like, you may want your bathroom to double up as a gym when you’re not taking a bath. So how about you get the Roca Active & Relax Bathroom? It’s this luxurious room where the sunken bath is really sunken, invisible till you don’t open up the floorboards. No windows too, instead 3 floor-to-ceiling LCDs giving you the illusion of a panoramic view.

UNIKEA: Make Your IKEA Unique!

UNIKEA: Make Your IKEA Unique!

What do you do when you reach a design roadblock? My favorite solution is to ADD LIMITATIONS. Often doing such a thing forces you to make decisions you might never have allowed yourself to make under other circumstances. From that, beauty emerges. What’s happened in this project is just that! Designer Kenyon Yeh takes IKEA furniture and hits the remix button!

Not Another Brick In The Wall

Not Another Brick In The Wall

The Save Water Brick design is really unique; the brick is a mixture of discarded plastic bottles and dried rotting leaves molded into bricks. There are funnels within the brick to channelize the rain water to nearby plants or underground tanks. So the basic idea is that it collects rainwater for consumption. Obviously the bricks are intended for external walls so that they can absorb the water, but the question is will they be strong enough to endure the elements?

Scribble A Beautiful Masterpiece

Scribble A Beautiful Masterpiece

One of my biggest regrets is that I don’t have a good hand at drawing. I mean I can copy someone else’s sketches but there’s a lot room for improvement. Incidentally, the ScribbleBot is a drawing tool for people like me. Ones who crave to draw neatly, but just don’t have the in-built talent for it. The device can be fed with a preconceived drawing paths downloaded off the internet, to maneuver your hand and pen in way that results in some awesome sketching. The video gives you the hang of how things are done.

Pratt's Third+Bond; More Like Third+Awesome

Pratt’s Third+Bond; More Like Third+Awesome

Pratt, in a crazy scheme to promote its students, alumni and faculty, recently outfitted two Brooklyn condos on the corner of 3rd and Bond Street with every manner of design paraphernalia, invited a bunch of people and put up an open bar. Color me there.  Drawing on past and present Pratt faculty and students like Eva Zeisel and Tucker Viemeister, the spaces came alive with conscious, inventive, often green, always cool design.

Post Baroque Hardcore Violin

Post Baroque Hardcore Violin

For over 500 million years… or wait… 500 years, the form of the violin has deviated from the baroque style very little. This violin right here, it’s different. Made by designer Hopfgartner Gerda to spearhead a new age in 4/4 design, this is indeed the “Gavari” Semiacoustic Violin. Created in co-operation with a professional Viennese violin maker to assure perfect dimensions and sound criteria.
