What does music mean to you?

What does music mean to you?

This was the question asked to the young participants of the competition run by Bang & Olufsen. To designers Sam Whyman & Andrew Guscott, it meant the B&O A9 – Weekender Edition. This beautiful speaker focuses on personal time, which is a luxury these days. The purpose of the design is to make you appreciate the details like the melody of the song you are listening to and of course your environment.

Squeaky Clean Teeth

Squeaky Clean Teeth

There should be more to children’s toothbrushes that just cartoon figures, toy shapes and colors. Brushing teeth correctly is important and as a parent of two kids, I know the pain of getting it done right. Cavities are a worry and so are the tarter, I guess the best way to entice them to brush correctly will be to give them something fun and interactive like the Orgel.

The Story of MVMT Watches

The Story of MVMT Watches

It took me to an encounter with the MVMT Watch to understand that owning a high quality watch need not burn a hole in my pocket. Now I am not talking like a seasoned haute horology investor, but like a person who appreciates a well designed watch, crafted from quality materials and finds them within my reach. The MVMT Watches stem from the desire of young entrepreneurs and watch enthusiasts who wanted to “cut out the brand inflation” without compromising on the quality.

A Rocking Horse With Roots

A Rocking Horse With Roots

Sitting itself is kinda boring, but design shouldn’t be… it should be fun! That’s the philosophy behind this modern interpretation of the classic Panton chair. To  preserving the timeless character of the chair, the designers have avoided decorating it arbitrarily. The chair becomes an integral part of the design, as it would have been intended as a rocking horse by Panton in 1959. Original materials of the chair combined with locally grown wood, (in contrast to the dark fabric & metal) communicate elegance & lightness.

Multifunctional Space Tourer

Multifunctional Space Tourer

The latest from space travel-enthusiast Oscar Viñals, the M2G White Bat combines space tourism with scientific exploration to expand the functionality of each trip. While primarily focused on the passenger’s space experience, the craft would be capable of delivering a number of commercial satellites or drones as supplementary support. In addition, an independently operated capsule with a single passenger could be deployed upon reentry in order to train and prepare astronauts for return missions.
