Cozy Cradle for Your iStuff

Cozy Cradle for Your iStuff

In designing the Spool Dock, Quell&Co sought to create an object that felt a little more like home and a lot less like a piece of machinery. This beautifully crafted dock offers up a place to charge your iPad  Mini, iPod or iPhone while simultaneously managing the cable. Taking design cues from everyday objects like vases and wooden table/chairs, the design’s marino felt and hardwood bring warmth and familiarity to your desktop.

It's an Elefier!

It’s an Elefier!

The latest addition to the pachyderm family, the Koya humidifier was designed with kids in mind! The shortness of the humidifier makes the controls accessible by children of almost any height, and its simplified interface makes it easy to operate. Its fun, elephant-inspired aesthetic enhances rather than takes away from the vibe of play rooms, and encourages kids to learn about and use the appliance.

Simulated Sunlight Alarm

Simulated Sunlight Alarm

Our body clock has been designed to be woken-up by the elements of nature; for example sunlight filtering in and the bird chirping their morning tunes. City life has kinda spoilt it for all of us and the Revive Alarm Clock hopes to set it right. Mimicking gradual sunrise about half an hour before the waking-up time, the Revive starts beaming light and awakening the body. This action makes the body recognize morning and your melatonin levels drop, before you even wake up. Thus you wake up feeling refreshed and highly aware.

For an average person on a busy day, the 10-hour talktime that your Smartphone says it will provide seems like an empty promise.

Truth is, you need a BOLT! The world’s smallest portable battery backup and wall charger combined!

The iPhone 6 – Ahhhh!

The iPhone 6 – Ahhhh!

Here it is, another sweet iPhone 6 concept. Interestingly by pushing the display to the edge, a 4.8″ display has been fashioned. I prefer this bling touch to the minimal one that is seen in the iPhone 5s. What do you guys think? Aye or Nay?

College Ruled Genius – Part 2

College Ruled Genius – Part 2

The Laser Cap is a good attempt at innovation; it basically involves a laser fitted cap that beams out the ruled lines seen on a sheet of paper. Why do we need this innovation? Perhaps to reduce the effects of inking the paper, improving our handwriting and making the text look neat. The only other reason that I can think of is a bit of clever fun, that acts as an inspiration for some bigger innovation.

However with solidThinking you are assured that they deliver what the promise. For example, with the solidThinking Inspire, they promise to offer a common visual language for engineering and ID. This is what infant equipment manufacturer Evenflo have to say….

Remembering Fukushima

Remembering Fukushima

The Unusual Chair by Japanese design firm h220430 is an expression of the current state of fragility the region is experiencing due to the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Though it has been 2 years since the disaster & things appear to be normal, the reality of the condition is far from it. The chair aims to reflect this abnormality in its missing leg, which viewers might overlook without closer examination. It’s a subtle & thoughtful reminder that the existence of danger is ever present despite our attempts to ignore it.
