Nice Jugs

Nice Jugs

Take a look at this next item up for scrutiny. Wow, there are so many pun and sexual references I could make right now about the name alone; “Cup & Jug”(hehe). My brain is about to explode but I will try to restrain myself. Who said jugs of water need to be filled through the same hole you pour from? Not me and not design house Vert Design.

Who you gonna call? GHOST Chair!

Who you gonna call? GHOST Chair!

When there is something strange, and it don’t look good…Don’t blame Dutch design studio DRIFT. Their wizards Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn have conjured up some pretty attractive spirits and eternally captured them for you to sit your rear on. The “GHOST” chair is “a futuristic concept of a chair, 3-dimensionally captured within the boundaries of reality.”

Danish 90210

So like the Danish have like this totally cool new school. OMG, I’m so jealous! It’s like all built around this super sweet open area that can be seen from almost every floor. The floors are like these stacked up boomerang thingys. It’s sooo cool, it’s like a big mall. Oh and they have these super sweet orange pillows for people to just chill on or myspace till your fingers bleed or totally spy on Stephanie.

Futurians Pay A Visit And Show Off Their Phones

Futurians Pay A Visit And Show Off Their Phones

2014 isn’t too far away so it’s nice when designers specifically target a time when their creations might meet reality. Take for example Peter Koren’s Flash (Adobe lawyers are standing by) mobile phone. Lets get the “duhs” out of the way first. Sleek, slim, buttonless, touchscreen color e-ink display, wireless charging, camera, and menu navigation via vertical and horizontal flicks. What, no gyro-thingamajiggy sensors?

A Chair For All Occassions

A Chair For All Occassions

The Hybrid chair may be used as a dining chair, a stool, an ottoman or lined up together – a bench. It consists of 2 components, a base and a back, plus some supplied stainless steel hardware items. With the back in place, you’ve got yourself a dining chair. Removing it produces a stool or an ottoman. Multiple ottomans can be linked together to form a bench of any desired length.

The Air Up There

The Air Up There

How many times have you looked up in the sky and wished you could better utilize all the seemingly wasted space floating just over your head? With water levels rising all over the globe, creating the current popularity in horizontal Terra Firma surfaces, real estate is at a premium. Greek designer and New Amsterdam resident Jessie Lauren might have a solution that could take design to new heights.

Round is the new Black

“Round” is the new Black

Times are changing and getting from point A to point B has become increasingly difficult. With the cost of environmentally conscious, green fuels like oats and hay costing more and more each day, it is no wonder many of us are deciding to stay home at night. Our one horse power horses are in need of a serious break and Canadian designer Henry Ed believes his “wheel” concept design could help.

Flower Filament

Flower Filament

Here’s a neato way to combine nature with human technology. The Flower Filament only lights up if there’s a flower in it. Yes designer Ha-Na Yeom some how managed to use the flower as a switch to lights up the hollowed out design which just so happens looks like a light bulb.

A Little Light Renovations

A Little Light Renovations

Here is the question of the moment in my head; should the use of light be considered a design aspect? Now I don’t mean the designing of light sources e.g.. lamps, chandeliers etc. I mean the light that is emitted itself. Standing on its own, is that design or simply a cool visual effect? For that matter, is it simply visual “art” like a movie, laser light show or music video? Which brings me to this temporary make-over of the Phyletic Museum in Germany by artist Robert Seidel.
