Screw It

Screw It

The fantastically simple Frida stool and side table are so sensibly designed they’ll make you say DUH! Each composed of just 4 flat-pack pieces, their clever construction is held together with just a single butterfly screw that locks the pieces in place and gives a touch of color. Easy to assemble and aesthetically adorable!

The Show-Off of Smartphones

The Show-Off of Smartphones

Unlike other unibody designs, Bella features a curved metal frame wrapped around a polycarbonate body in a unique 3-dimensional way. This offers three 3 levels of customization between the main body, metal frame, and other accents including the rotary knob used for navigation and volume control. Check out the many styles —>

Freeze As You Please

Freeze As You Please

The FR is a flexible refrigerator that can allot storage space as per the food requirements. What this means is that in case you have more frozen foods than fresh, then simply switch the compartment dividers to increase the freezer space and vice versa. It basically gives you the flexibility to change the freezer to fresh-food configuration. Pretty clever if you ask me!

Balloon Bag For The Tails

Balloon Bag For The Tails

Car pileups can be disastrous and given the high speeds at which vehicles ply on the freeways, preventing secondary collisions can be tricky. The Air Bag Taillight is a safety balloon lamp that gets deployed as soon as the airbag of a crashed car blows up. The idea is to forewarn vehicles from a far, that an accident has taken place and to slow down their speed. On paper it’s a good idea, but I’m not sure if it will work very well. What do you think?

Meet the eBugatti

Meet the eBugatti

A winner of the Auto Design Prague: Talent of the Year Award, the Coupémotion concept follows in the footsteps of Bugatti’s “pur sang” design principle where lightness and modern aesthetics meet. To achieve this, it’s powered by 4 electric wheel hub engines which allow for both greater range as well as enhanced agility with each operating independently. As for styling, it harkens back to the original coupe where the passenger is fully enclosed while the driver is centered and partially covered.
