Fliders Can Save Our Office Mouse!

Fliders Can Save Our Office Mouse!

YD has recently moved from a virtual office setup to an actual office setup. As design advocates we had to reflect modern design in our office, so we got our team Apple gear. New iMac, iPad mini…the whole nine yards! We teamed our mouse with expensive aluminum mouse pads, only to realize that expensive doesn’t mean quality. Yes, our Magic Mouse is now ruined, too bad we found out about Fliders so late!

Perfect Pearly Whites

Perfect Pearly Whites

How many times do you brush your teeth? Perhaps twice, however if you brush them thrice a day, your teeth can stay healthy teeth and free from bad breath. Of course lesser dentist bills are a given! To encourage this habit – brushing thrice for three minutes each time, we have here the Perfect 3 Minute Brushing system. It is a portable toothbrush that is easy to use.

A New Design Notion

A New Design Notion

NTN’s premier product launch, called Collection 01, focuses on material likeness and a similar construction process to tie these otherwise unrelated objects together as a series. A thoughtful balance of aluminum, fabric and natural wood define each as a singular product, but a shared design language makes them shine as a group.

Watch This Ways

Watch This Ways

My watch is mine, and if you try peeking into it, you probably won’t be able to read the time. However if I wear the Followatch, you will be able to see the time correctly, with the dial facing towards you! Followatch always stands upright because it rotates freely thanks to the center of gravity. Awesome idea for sharing time!

If Only Costner Made WaterWall…

If Only Costner Made WaterWall…

… the result would have been a new ecological water heater for the bathroom! Apparently this wall integrated water storage has a coating on the glass surfaces to help absorb solar energy. This of course means that the water sandwiched between the glass panes will also get heated. Moreover the translucent glass allows natural sunlight to stream into the bathroom. So nice!
