When the Phantom calls, everyone listens...

When the Phantom calls, everyone listens…

The Germans and the Italians are pioneers in automobiles. The Swiss in timepieces. The French, although connoisseurs of fashion, have created some surprisingly good audio equipment. The Phantom, by Devialet (the most awarded audio equipment company in the world) isn’t referred to as a speaker, but as an “imploding sound centre”, and for fathomable reasons. The tiny soccer ball sized speaker is formidable enough to outshine loudspeakers more than twenty times its size.

Don’t be easily deceived by the Viper’s rugged exterior. The roller is made from high-grade German foam, and it houses a precise vibrator that you can set to 3 different frequencies.

The Viper is touted by some eminent athletes as the possibly the most effective fitness roller out there. Expect to give your pet cat a run for its money when it comes to being lean and flexible!

Go Out in Style

Go Out in Style

Far from your everyday horse-drawn funeral carriage, The Last Ride was designed to remind everyone that you’ll be just as fierce in the afterlife as you were in this one! Ok… but in all seriousness- the carriage takes inspiration from classic artillery and funerary carts where the large wheels were a dominant visual element, translating this to one giant wheel with two hubless rotary tracks. With The Last Ride, it’s sure to be the most fabulous funeral everrrrr!

Beastly Beverages

Beastly Beverages

I’m a massive sucker for good packaging. I’d buy just about anything if it were packaged well. The Creatura line of beverages appeals to that side of me. And it would probably give me less of a guilt trip, knowing that the Creature series of drinks are made from the finest and purest ingredients. Not to mention, the packaging is 100% recyclable too!

Them for Us

Them for Us

The latest addition to DesignByThem’s timber range, “Them Chair” is a modern interpretation of the enduring furniture designs of the 1960s. Though inspired by a time when furniture was built to last, it is constructed with the latest technology to reinterpret the design into a reduced form. Combining a classic aesthetic with sustainable living, it is constructed from dense FSC timber ensuring it stands the test of time. Better yet, it can be flat-packed and assembled by the user- functions to the global economy, yet uncommon in a product with this level of craftsmanship.

Retro-futuristic Radness

A tribute to the classic Citroën DS of yesteryear and its designer Flaminio Bertoni, the DS21 Renaissance captures the core styling of the iconic estate wagon in a fashion on par with the French brand’s modern identity. Like the original, the Renaissance should be noted for its aerodynamic, futuristic body design with fender skirts that both harken back to the space age and look forward to modern efficiency standards.
