Water Ball Ripples

Water Ball Ripples

The Ripple faucet creates a new, fun way to interact with water. Drawing inspiration from surface ripples, the faucet creates a strong visual relationship between the two. On top of the frosted ripple surface sits a metal ball. An array of electromagnetic sensors detects that ball’s position. Moving the ball in or out from the center controls water pressure. Moving it around controls temperature.

Three Piece Art House Rock Band

Three Piece Art House Rock Band

Looking like a hidden rebel alliance base on a distant planet, this cultural center in Santo Domingo, Colombia, is what I envision the real future of post-apocalyptic architecture to look like. Architect Giancarlo Mazzanti dispenses with the obtrusive and predictable rearrangements of glass, steal and concrete phallic references with this organically inspired beacon of grounded, yet ethereal modernity.

The Cycool is designed for people who hate working out and hate sweating. It goes without saying if you work out, you’re going to sweat – thus we have millions of overweight (but dry) people around the world. With the Cycool, put those sweat gland in check. The system is powered by your own peddling. The faster you peddle, the faster the fan.

Eau de Temps

“I love the smell of Napalm in the morning…” – Robert Duvall (Apocalypse Now). Though I question anyone’s sanity that might actually mean those very words, it does speak of the fundamental truth that a particular scent has the power to instantly transform our moods.

The Arm Revolution

The Arm Revolution

Founded in London by Anthony Hayward, ARMREVOLUTION is not so much a brand as a radical movement for change in mens luxury accessories. Its mission: to create the most innovative cufflink brand in the world. Each patent-pending design was conceived to reinvent the way that a French cuff shirt is attached at the wrist so innovative that the company refers to them as arm architecture.

Picking This Apart

Picking This Apart

One tooth pick is nothing but hundreds of thousands combined and it becomes a marvelous piece of art. That’s because of a special characteristic we instinctually see – patterns. Wisteria was used to make this massive wood sculpture called Lune Blanche which means white moon.  All those toothpicks… my teeth and gums are actually scared right now.

The Michael Jordan of Washing Machines

The Michael Jordan of Washing Machines

Sometimes menial domestic tasks can be so boring for us afflicted with short attention spans. From doing the dishes, to cleaning out the refrigerator off all that rotting take-out, these tasks are not difficult to accomplish, just boring as sin to do. It was that need to liven up these chores that inspired the “Tian Chi” Chinese Washing Machine by Carlo Casagrande & Yu Wenhou Ben for CANDY Group and BIC LaFucina.

Some Serious Rocking

Some Serious Rocking

ID people love the tools afforded to them by today’s advance computers and software. They’re able to visualize products and test every nuance before manufacturing. Such is the case with the MORPHOGENESIS LOUNGE CHAIR and yes that’s all in caps because designer Timothy Schreiber wanted it that way.

Your Spoon is Doomed...

Your Spoon is Doomed…

Spoons are so last year. Who has time to find a clean one, lift your hand, swirl your wrist to mix in sugar with your tea or coffee, tap the spoon dry or lick it and then place it back on the plate? I mean really, are we animals!? No, most of us are not. So that is why Florian Dussopt, Jérémie Reneau & Julie Girard got together and created the “Ceramix For Mix” saucer and cup design.
