Recycling Your Way to Total Beauty

Recycling Your Way to Total Beauty

One person’s recycling is another person’s garage sale. One person’s trash is another person’s jewelry construction. Take a peek at this collection of recycled jewelry by Indregru. Several different constructs for several different purposes, and oh my goodness, a photo shoot with the ladies of the recycling plant!

Firefly Madness!

Firefly Madness!

This guy, the guy who designed this lamp “Random Orbit,” he’s got a great signature. You should definitely check it out. In fact, it’s in one of the images in this post. See if you can find it! The lamp in the post is just splendid too. A 32inch ball of firefly inspired lights flying in, out, around, and through. Just like knitting! They’ll be made in a buncha sizes!

Don’t Panic Just Yet

Don’t Panic Just Yet

Given the current terror scenario across the world, it’s only natural instincts to get panicky if the lights blank out while traveling by the underground train. It could be a normal technical snag, but we fear the worst, and rightly so. Coaches are generally equipped with emergency lights, but something like the Emergency Handle Light can give the commuters a lot more confidence to deal with the situation. It’s the overhead handle re-designed to fit in a flashlight at the end.

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

The new Aluminum Series Mirror by Sonia eliminates the need for a separate magnifying mirror. A magnet is placed on a pendulum behind the plate glass mirror. This magnet attracts the magnet, which is concealed into the mini Magnifying Mirror, allowing users to slide the small mirror anywhere on the large mirror. When not in use, it can be pulled off the surface and stored away.

Between Art and Work

Between Art and Work

Traipsing along a fine line of an artist’s work area and a craftsman’s work table, the L.O.F.T. Workstation effortlessly balances between the two. It’s shortlisted for a Helen Hamlyn Design Award and can be seen at this year’s 100% Future Show Design London. Quite the achievement – lets take a closer look.

Agreed, IKEA Is Totally Inspiring

Agreed, IKEA Is Totally Inspiring

From its stylish furniture to this totally awesome concept vehicle, we all have to agree that IKEA is an inspirational brand! An identity that stands for sustainable, quality and stylized pieces at affordable prices and cannot be better reflected. This electric battery driven vehicle is very spacious and has a flexible interior. Meaning you can re-arrange the seating options to suit you. The head lights are bright OLED panels that can host changeable graphics, making it totally disco dynamite!

New Kinda Treasure Hunt

New Kinda Treasure Hunt

One of my favorite games at a kiddies Birthday Party used to be Treasure Hunt. The charm of such traditional games has been lost, ever since gaming consoles have come on the scene. So it’s nice to see that the love for such games rekindled albeit in a techno avatar as the EMIL Experience Outdoors. This hand-held console is like a GPS compass that allows you to form and execute treasure hunts, biking routes and expeditions, Hunting Mr. X in the field and Scouts Games. It can also come in handy to polish your Navigational Skills. Super!

In The Near Future

In The Near Future

Near Future as in 2010; thankfully the designers are not dating it like 2050 or 2200 for this concept! Anyways we are talking about the Persian Delight: Nokia CLIPit Concept Mobile Phone. Brushed steel and Persian turquoise stone encrusted, this phone proposes a bevy of features like finger print as your SIM, Touch pad-Dot matrix screen, hands free clip on design, and a combo of Philips Lumalive and conceptual “Smart fabrics” to blend out a 12”screen!

These Beats No Trash

These Beats No Trash

Made of just oak and steel! This Modern Marvel shall amuse and astound you! You’ve got to see it! And perhaps even some day own it. If you dare. But I can’t help you with that you’ll have to contact the musician: designer Dominic Wilcox. And when you talk to him, tell him I said he should program in the Beastie Boys.

Something ironic.

Blind Phone with Fashion

Blind Phone with Fashion

So check it out. We’ve had several cells for the blind here at Yanko, and they’ve all been just lovely. This one, though, this one hits a sharper note. This one is closer to actual reality now, with the super simple 3D braille face, functionality and instant ease to produce go a long way. This one, Siwei Liu’s “Tactility” phone, uses technology we’ve already got today to make a phone that’ll be good at least until tomorrow.

Fictional Fantasy Is A Globule

Fictional Fantasy Is A Globule

Peugeot Globule is concept vehicle that is made up of four separate spheres that move together in a globule shape. Each sphere accommodates a single passenger and is individually powered by an electric motor. The four spherical parts are connected to a central battery and are contained within a very flexible polymer covering. The car has been designed on a self-assemble basis and can move in different arrangements. Like it can file the four spheres into a single line, to cross a narrow lane.

An Emotional Phone

An Emotional Phone

The more we get hooked to technology and cyberspace, the more we depend on them to reflect our moods and emotional status. One such device of the future is Gaia Phone and it promises to become your Identity. It’s the kinda phone that supports a virtual wall full of pics of contacts in our phonebook and depending upon the strength of your relationship (detected by the number of calls to/from that person); it brightens or fades-out their photo. Not surprisingly, it comes to life with its master’s touch!

Clinking Bottles No More

Clinking Bottles No More

A drinks caddy need not fall under ID but a functional twist to the design, definitely warrants a mention. I’m talking about the W310 WAVE Drinks Caddy, an ideal basket to transport your precious bottles of sodas and wine from point A to point B. The outer wave structure makes it easy to fit the basket in the boot of a car. However the coolest part is the inner bottle-separator that holds each bottle in its place, therefore no clinking, clashing of glass.
