The Manure Master

The Manure Master

The Fiaker 2.0 addresses two of the issues: actually catching the manure… and maintain the traditional look for an authentic experience! See how it works —>

The iPhone Saga – More Real Estate

The iPhone Saga – More Real Estate

So, the story continues….we have another brilliant iPhone 6 concept that features a flat screen with 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch display options. The resolution of screen allows the icons reorganization on the springboard. I think it looks very fulfilling to have a screen that spills over the edges.

Imaginary Faces

Imaginary Faces

Though its construction is skeletal and light, the Hedron table uses simple geometries to give the illusion of mass. The dual octahedron supports not only give the piece structural integrity, but create invisible planes that are easy to imagine as solid figures.

Beyond a Blowdryer

Beyond a Blowdryer

Chances are the words “communal blowdryer” spark some less than desirable mental images from your last visit a hotel bathroom. Not cute! The OBLOW dryer solves many of the functional and aesthetic issues of current models with a cordless, minimal, wall-mounted, easy-to-clean design. That’s easy enough… but the heart of the system is its digital interface that allows users to play music, schedule a taxi, check flights, locate points of interest and anything else a traveler needs!

Business On the Top, Party On the Bottom

Business On the Top, Party On the Bottom

This eye-catching piece, called Hudson, combines an industrial structure with sophisticated modern accents. The focal point of the design is a bright, powder-coated base of intersecting legs that seem to play trick on the eye or change shape as the viewer moves. In contrast, its slim and elegantly carved tabletop is garnished with a striking intersecting diagonal inlay and is reminiscent of traditional Danish furniture.

The Chiro Coach

The Chiro Coach

Patients who experience back pain from over-sitting are often prescribed fitness bands, exercise balls and other tools to aid in their physical therapy, but because of the lack of accountability, few follow through!
