Rip Your Environment Apart

Rip Your Environment Apart

Augmented reality! That’s what we’re dealing with here. This right here is the “Scout – Portable Pedestrian Navigation Device” and it’s intended to be used by people traveling about, connecting then with local knowledge, wisdom, and GPS information to guide them. It’s a digital compass is what it is. It encourages “uninhibited exploration, discovery, documentation, and sharing.”

A Hundred and Fifty Glasses

A Hundred and Fifty Glasses

How much wine and water can one fellow drink? 150+1 to be exact. This chandelier’s name is “Cut Glasses” and was designed and constructed by one John Harrington. I think you’ll find this to be quite the lovely headpiece for any fabulous room, and no less breakable than any other mass of glass you’re bound to have up there. These glasses aren’t made for drinking liquids out of though, only to drink in the light and turn the light on it’s top, bottom, and side.

Keep That Baby Swaddled

Keep That Baby Swaddled

So you’ve got a new baby, right? What are you going to do?! I don’t know! You might be in trouble! But you’ve got to buckle down. You’re a parent now. You’d better put that child in a buggy. You’d better put that baby in the “Smart Baby Case.” It’s kind of like a Matrix robot nanny pod sort of thing.

Mine Sniffer

Mine Sniffer

M-SEEK aims to make demining safer and quicker. The lightweight device uses an electro-chemical sensor to sniff out the bad stuff. Miners no longer need to wander aimlessly since it’s designed to strategically specify zones of high danger. The designer spent many a day working with real deminers to figure out what needed to improve. The end result is a tool and system that not only saves lives but also money which could potentially mean more deminers hired to rapidly demine an area.

Non Sexual Squeeze

Non Sexual Squeeze

It surprises me to know that we got some prudes in the house, who took offense to the sexy banter on the Perfect Screw. So this time I figured I’d keep the obvious sexual innuendos out of the Perfect Squeeze. Orangin Citrus Squeezer! Straight and simple: this is a citrus squeezer that works more like a crank-me-up thang, similar to what you saw on a battery and a light before. Is this decent enough for you?

Give Your Fruits A Hug

Give Your Fruits A Hug

I like no-fuss minimal designs especially for my interiors. Nothing like some subtle white whirls with a hollow space to envelope a bunch of fruits. That’s simply the Hug Bowl for you. White Solid Surface with gradients akin to an arena. Let them give your oranges and melons a big hug!

A Hot Bed

A Hot Bed

Are you really geared up for the winters? Really, really? I’m sure you must be having your woollies out, but there is always scope for improvement. How about Home Improvement? How about an enigmatic radiator that flips open to become this warm bed on the floor. Like the “Bediator”; I’ll endorse it only if it promises not to buckle under my weight.

Flowers Growing from the Fridge

Flowers Growing from the Fridge

You live in the city. You cannot tell a flower from a hole in the wall. Or perhaps you’d love to see a flower there, in the brick, just peeking out at you in this concrete jungle? I love that image. A flower is just a flower, appreciate it all the more if it comes popping up against all odds through the cracks of a dirty sidewalk. This fanciful nature is alive and well in the 25togo designed “Flower in Flat.”

Crowning the White Gallery

Crowning the White Gallery

More like giving it a halo. This post is straight up about a lovely floating sculpture made of untold amounts of woven glass. This Murano glass sculpture lives above Rome’s first big lifestyle store designed as a contemporary art gallery. You gonna love it! I wish our lifestyle stores were this glorious!
