Cuts Like A Knife

Cuts Like A Knife

Simply love this WMF Kitchen Knife Concept for its geometric aesthetics and the fact that it is crafted from a single piece of metal. Essentially, the knife is characterized by blended volume and how the gradient gently mergers the layers. The design screams high-end luxury and me likes that!

Post Stone Age Lighting

Post Stone Age Lighting

The MIKA 350 is a pendant lamp inspired by the “palozzas” houses of the ancient Celtic forts that were built in Galicia from 6th century BC. The design pays homage to the architectural tradition by using the same granite and wood composition. The result is a minimalist yet organic object that easily compliments both traditional and modern interiors.

Industrial Elegance at Its Best

Industrial Elegance at Its Best

The Robert stool’s uses robust tubular steel in contrast with thin hand-carved wood to create an aesthetic that is at once industrial and elegant. The seat is curved for seamless comfort and displays a striking diagonal accent inlay. The base’s colorful powder coated finish emphasizes the toughness of the material, ensuring that users can be confident in the durability of the design.

Luna Time

Luna Time

The Luna Watch is a clever design that represents the process of waxing and waning of the real moon as a way of communicating the time. What this means is that Waning to the right indicates ‘AM’ and waning to the left means ‘PM’. You can recharge the watch via USB and access the functions menu by adjusting the crown. In all, designer ilmo Ahn wants you to own your moon.

Creative Calculation With Sharpened Pencils

Creative Calculation With Sharpened Pencils

Can creative output really be measured? Yes, the pencil shavings collected in the Sharpner Jar tell the story of your efforts, even if there’s nothing final to show for the time spent. This measurable “creative data” proves to colleagues, employers, friends, family, and—most importantly—yourself that work was accomplished, useful or not.

Koo Koo for Cork

Koo Koo for Cork

Gone are the days of using cork only for preserving wine! The mergence of the material in furniture-building has given designers the opportunity to craft eco-friendly pieces with unique (sometimes eccentric) looks. The Blackcork series demonstrates the flexibility, strength and versatility of the cork in a series of elegant stools, chairs, tables, shelving and even mirrors. Which is your fav?!

Expanding Buoy

Expanding Buoy

Mostly lifesavers come in just one size, so finding the appropriate sized one, at the hour of need can be tricky. The OC Buoy goes from thin to big in a jiffy making it appropriately sized for anyone. The idea is to provide the right tools for emergency services and this one executes it efficiently.

Exam Time

Exam Time

Love this Timer Cap Concept that is designed for you to use during an exam. You basically attach it to your pen or pencil and press down the cap to the set time. For example, you push the cap down for an hour and as the time lapses, the countdown timer is reflected via the gradients on the cap. Time-up and the cap buzzes. Essentially it’s the visual representation that makes a difference during stress.

The Real Dry Cleaning

The Real Dry Cleaning

The Toaster-L is a waterless washing machine intended for smaller loads like a shirt, a pair of socks or underwear. The concept takes its inspiration from a toaster and its pop-up lever. Simply throw in your soiled clothes and press the switch down to start the process. When the process is done, wave your hand above the machine and crispy clean clothes pop out, just like two toasted breads!

Six Is A Sexy Number

Six Is A Sexy Number

Just add a nine…like sixty-nine…okie enough of my naughty banter now. Back to the point of the HTC Six, a concept phone that is super slim and features an elegant silhouette. Stirring the emotions of “vintage”, the design language on this concept is retro modern. The specs are detailed on the images, so let’s just appreciate the beautiful lines for now.
