AWKWARD!!!

AWKWARD!!!

Not many things in life can be more embarrassing than being incontinent. No, I don’t mean being in a continent like Australia or Disney World. I mean the loss of control of ones’ bodily waste. It’s a sad reality and should not be something that makes people uncomfortable in any way, but it does. Well to alleviate some of this embarrassment, designer Morgane Franck de Préaumont has created innovative packaging called “Epure”.

WENGER – makers of the Swiss Army Knife brand have expanded once into many arenas including time pieces, apparel, home cutlery and luggage. Well they added one more tool to their multi-functional portfolio. Their new line of casual/athletic shoes just might turn out to be a new addition to my lust list. Their first few designs are sleek, minimal and tastefully adorned with the Swiss Army logo. Hard to stay neutral over.

Attracted to time

Who here remembers Harry? That lovable toy consisting of a cartoon picture of a bald man that you would move magnetic shaving around and create your own hair style and beards? Well that is the basic principal behind this pocket watch concept by Li Jianye. “Time Sand” takes a magnetized minute and hour hands and attracts the help of metal shavings (powdered iron) to display the time. Just shake up the watch and find out what time it is.

Elegant Trash Bin?

Elegant Trash Bin?

It seems like those words just don’t belong together. When can anything that holds trash be elegant? Well, when Li Jianye designs one it can. Let me introduce you to my new friend Flexibin. This little Flexibin was designed for someone like me, who has a pile of plastic grocery store bags piled up in a box in the Laundry room. Now, those pesky little plastic bags can be put to good use with Flexibin.

Travelin’ Light

Travelin’ Light

There is nothing I love more than to see a design that is super practical, super stylish and one that I would love to have at my home. A cross between a tree and a lamp-post with glowing orbs, Vaka will be the life or “LIGHT” of the party. No matter what mood you are in – chillin’ out listening to some tunes, romantic evening with your special someone, or a bass thumping party, Vaka will be your perfect companion.

Sci-fi screenplay writers will be cracking their knuckles if this latest concept by Armand Leconte becomes reality. He envisions vast fields of crops being harvested by autonomous, cold hearted, damn-dirty robots! Wait, sorry…just watched iRobot. Seriously though, feeding the world is becoming more and more difficult and finding new more efficient ways to grow and harvest crops is a huge priority around the globe.

Like A Hamster

Like A Hamster

Liber toit, a concept by Aureline Ranson turns your neighborhood into a giant hamster-like jungle gym! If that sentence alone doesn’t excite you then hear me out. Why relegate ourselves to the street? If we’re supposed to reduce our reliance on petrol based technologies to get around, lets take full advantage of our body’s full dexterity.

Catching the Wild

Catching the Wild

Well raise my rent and call me Sally. Now this may seem a little odd, but the collective known as Stolenwood share both a passion for design, and, er… westerns. Though I don’t think Ikea will fear their marketshare anytime soon, this little gem is sure to win more than a couple of fans. “Catching the Wild , a coat stand that carries your wild clothes.” It’s a lasso…get it? Yahooooo!

Cryptex Mobile: Feel the code

Opus Dei has been needing a mobile phone to call their very own since the demise of the Knights Templar. If only designer Marc Schömann was catholic and lived 600 years ago, this baton style mobile phone might have saved them from a Dan Brown style disaster. This phone called “_______” (yup, it has no name) uses haptic technology to provide physical feedback for making a call.
