Time Inverted

Time Inverted

A clock, as we know it keeps us on track. It helps us to stay focused and accomplish tasks before deadlines. Clocks also help us to get to where we need to go and see how far we have gone. Therefore, clocks are essential to us. Jason Linde has designed a clock that is different than the average clocks we have in our home.

Portable PC Theater

Portable PC Theater

The Portable PC Theater is one computer designed for pure entertainment. In lieu of a display, it has a built it projector which can be removed to better positioning. Don’t worry about sound because flanking the projection lens are stereo speakers. What about messy cords? All cords retract into the unit when not in use and because it is a computer, there’s a collapsible keyboard.

A Little Dab Will Do Ya

A Little Dab Will Do Ya

Salt is a spice that we use daily in preparing our meals. It adds flavor to very bland foods. However, we tend to overdo it on the salt, which can cause bad problems for our bodies. Kakujio was designed to eliminate placing too much salt on our foods. It comes pre-measured at 2.5 cc’s each. With that, there will be no more over salting of foods and the food will come out perfect each time we prepare it.

Chocolate Portable HDD

Chocolate Portable HDD

Break me off a piece of that! This portable hard drive looks like a chocolate bar but thats where the similarities end. Each piece is made of a modular flash drive. The central hub is a touchscreen to help you view and organize your collective files. In theory it sounds clever and usable but would this really work in the real world?

Plinth Bath

Plinth Bath

The Plinth bath exudes humble sophistication with its minimalist styling and emphasis on subtle detailing. The plinth base may also act as an easy access storage unit for optional water jet pumps and its finish can be matched to suit a variety of bathrooms. Through its cantilever construction the Plinth base may also be used as a step to enable safe and effortless entry into the bath whilst giving the bather a ledge to place their accessories whilst they bathe.

Extension Cord Extreme

Extension Cord Extreme

Instead of just having power outputs on one end of an extension cord, designer Wilson Song placed them all along the cord itself. We’re not electrical engineers here at Yanko Design but we have our doubts. If a device is plugged into one output, doesn’t that prevent power from reaching the other outputs? On paper it sounds like a great idea. The cord itself can act as a flexible power strip.

Stackable Hangers

Stackable Hangers

You’re thinking, “aren’t hangers already stackable?” Why yes they are… sorta. They are flat for the most part but they don’t stack into each other with precision which is what makes these hangers from designer Satoshi Yoshizumi different.

A Sucky Broom

A Sucky Broom

Vacuums are great at picking up fine dust but suck horribly at bigger pieces of trash. Can we say clog anyone? Of course brooms have their caveat too. They’re great at moving big pieces of litter but forget about dirt and pet hair. Why not combine the two into a Vacuum Broom?

Flower Power Fun From A Vase

Reborn is a vase concept designed to see a bouquet of flowers thru life and death. As time ticks away the vase turns inverting the bouquet into the perfect drying position. When it’s thoroughly dry, the bouquet completes its journey as the vase brings it a full 360º around back to its original position.
