It's Like Biological Twitter

It’s Like Biological Twitter

The Moody Sensiblog is a watch-like device that records and broadcasts your readings to a blog for all to read. Why would someone want to do this? The same reason why Twitter, the social community that asks one simple question, “what are you doing?”, is so addictive and popular.

A Conversation Piece

A Conversation Piece

Two flower pots communicate between a window glass. A green plant that grows in the wild has many stories to tell the pot of exotic flowers. Quietly listen to them speak. Eventually, the two become one through a magnetic force that brings them together. One pot free to breath the air of the outside while the other pot shows off its’ beauty to those who are on the inside.

It is not a game just for children, but for objects as well. Make-believe play is something we all should enjoy. The Pretending Clock enjoys its’ own game of make-believe.

There are times that we wish we could have a little more privacy, retreating into our own space of quietness. Adults crave this just as much as children.

The Phantom of the Casa… is here?

The Phantom of the Casa… is here?

After the sun sets, shadows disappear. Objects become still as if they go to sleep with the sun. With Phantom sheets, not only can objects seem as though they continue living long after the sunset, but the shadows they produce are ones that have never been seen. The Phantom sheets create images different from what they are shadowing.

Nail Cushion Saves Fingers

Nail Cushion Saves Fingers

Sometimes nails are too short and small for our fingers to hold and we end up with swollen thumbs. The Nail Cushion is a rubberized plate that holds various nail diameters to allow an easy and safe strike. By default the plate also helps drive the nail straight in. No more swollen thumbs and safe enough for Tim Allen to use.

Life Through Lighting

Life Through Lighting

The inspiration behind The Cell Project is one of much deeper meaning than a simple light fixture to hang on the wall. The two designs featured in The Cell Project are created to form three dimensional patterns through the repetition of the components that make up the fixtures. What starts as a simple object, builds upon itself to create a new multi dimensional form.
