Boskke Cube Planter Giveaway Day 3!

If you didn’t win the first two days, don’t worry. Here’s another chance! We’re giving a Boskke Cube Planter everyday this week until Saturday! To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment telling me when you first started reading YD and how you came across us. Open to all North Americans and Europeans. The Cube is brand new from our friends at Boskke. Hit the jump for more info!

Sponsor: Boskke, Winner Jane Kim!

The clear structure of the Boskke Cube is a large water reservoir which you can monitor visually. Water is gradually drawn up through Boskkeโ€™s unique Slo-Flo watering system to feed the plant, meaning you only need to water it once a month. Check out the video!

    October 2012 !

  • I found it on a blog recommendation. I’ve kept up to date ever since, I like the interesting items!

  • Benjamin says:

    October 2013

  • Kim says:

    I’m not really sure to be honest. My SO is currently studying design so I’m pretty sure he introduced me to Yanko but I don’t know when ๐Ÿ˜€ quite recently I guess

  • Jeroen says:

    Somewhere near december 2010, and I suspect I got here by StumbleUpon.

  • Stan says:

    I cant remember when but I ran across a blog post with something you shared. Always enjoy new designs and ideas so here I stayed

  • Jane Kim says:

    I would say around fall of 2011. I found you guys while playing around on and got hooked since then!

  • Cecilia says:

    Now that’s a really hard question! I think I ended up on this site through another site linking an interesting/awesome looking design. And then I kinda got stuck here ๐Ÿ˜€ This could have been anytime between 2010 and 2011, month.. quite impossible to say sadly. Awesome site and keep up the good work!

  • Manos says:

    Somewhere around 2005-2006. Fresh design graduate, getting into a Masters degree, used Yanko as my daily dose of conceptual inspiration.

  • TB says:

    Started reading YD in 2004 and have loved it ever since. Found it via a link to a mockup of a house built over water by a Dutch designer, IIRC…


  • Jeff says:

    Dezeen, pretty recently really. The past few months.

  • D says:

    Two things. You don’t put orchid into soil and you don’t water it like this.
    They are showing here how to kill your flower ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Silvia says:

    I’m following you since 2 years, I saw some fabulous post on facebook and then I started reading many of them on the website. There are so many curious things in design I still want to find out thanks to you!

  • phil g. says:

    I found you recently (2013), when I misspelled “supahero” in google. Glad I did. Thanks guys.

  • nic z says:

    first starting reading YD about a year ago.. found this site from a friend of mine

  • S Frost says:

    I’ve looked over my partner’s shoulder as he cruised this blog for a few years. Then one day when he was at work I went through his Google reader to figure out what this blog was. I don’t know why I had to be sneaky. It was just the nature of our relationship back then.

  • Shaun says:

    I started checking out Yanko about a year ago and frequently check back every few days to what’s new. I found it via my favorite news and info congregator, Pulse. I love keeping ahead of new technologies, especially if they are Eco-friendly, and I also enjoy products that help with gardening or growing things in the home. There is always so much to enjoy on Yanko.

  • SimonM says:

    In May, I graduated with a degree in architecture and moved to Seattle to pursue a career in design. After an interview with a stuffy corporate architecture firm, they asked me if I would be happier doing industrial design and showed me YD. I’ve been a follower ever since!

  • Adam Haworth says:

    Found the website on a tumblr post a couple of months ago and its now my absolute fav, I check every day for updates ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jeremy Cowie says:

    I started reading 2+ years ago after a designer friend showed me the site. I’m a sucker for well-designed anything, (even if it’s only a concept).

    P.S. I saw a post awhile back about a bike that generated had turn signals and a built-in light and generated its own power that haunts me….

  • Paul Johansen says:

    It has been some time since I started following your blog I think since 2008. Back when Google Reader was still around. I love seeing the New Designs people come up with. It helps Inspire me in my line of Mechanical Engineering work.

  • Tiina says:

    It must have been 2 years ago, my boyfriend introduced it to me. And I’m glad he did ๐Ÿ™‚

  • erwin says:

    a year ago, came across another site that linked it, don’t remember which site, but bookmarked it and have been visiting ever since.

  • GingerP says:

    I came across your website when I found one of your designs on pinterest…the flat extension cord for under a rug. You have a wonderful site..brilliant ideas!

  • Vandy says:

    Found you on Flipboard first a few years ago and now read you via Feedly everyday on my laptop/phone/ipad.

  • Zvonka says:

    It must be more than two years, I had a phase where I was constantly looking for a design that is involving concrete and I stumbled upon Yanko page and it had some very good stuff on that. I’ve been visiting since than and later I liked your fb page. Since than I am receiving news form there. Like this one ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Cristina says:

    2009! And never forget to read a newsletter!!

  • pisces says:

    It’s been so many years since I first started reading Yanko Design, but if I had to guess… I’d say 2009. I believe I discovered this great site through Google Reader (RIP).

  • Randi B. Bystrรธm says:

    I started following you via StumbleUpon aproximatly 5 years ago. Then, when I got onto Facebook, I found you there too ๐Ÿ™‚ .

  • Yaro Bandurovych says:

    Started following this year after my Industrial Design professor mentioned you in class.

  • Lisa84 says:

    I found this site through a recommendation of a colleague last year (April 2013) as we study Architecture together. We look at your site to get our creative juices flowing as we’re always inspired by the innovative designs and creations you share with us and the world.

  • Justin says:

    I found the site through a technology blog (Engadget maybe?). I am not exactly sure, but I’d say at least three years is how long I’ve been following the site. I have been subscribed to the RSS feed since that day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • liran babekov says:

    I found it on Pinterest a mere 5 months ago when I found the coolest invention, the Air umbrella.
    I have followed ever since, and found some other amazing things!

  • Stine says:

    Started to read when I came across it about six months ago, reading about the Electrolux Design Lab. I just started a bachelor product design, and Yanko has already inspired me so much!

  • Irina says:

    Find your site on Facebook more than a year ago. Following since then

  • Rychu says:

    I found this site wen I install Feedly in my first Android device

  • Kat says:

    I started readin last year, I think around summer? I think I pinned a concept design from Pinterest and the rest was history!

  • Bryan says:

    I found this site years ago when I still in highschool, 2006 I think. A friend recommended to me and I’ve been checking it daily ever since.

  • rac says:

    I think it was 2011 from a random blog recommendation.

  • Bruce Brown says:

    Couple years now I think Google Reader had you as a suggested site and I’ve kept you in FeedDemon since then.

  • sa says:

    literally just stumbled on it today looking at the alto sewing machine. now a little bit hooked.

  • Morag Malloy says:

    TODAY! I found this page via DesignTaxi’s sharing of your piece on the new Vespa camera – now a Facebook follower too.

  • Michele P says:

    I would say 2011 or so is when I first found your site, I love all the unique items you feature and became a fan when I saw your site while searching google for an item I was looking for way back then.

  • lucas gil says:

    About two years ago via Facebook recomended ad ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ann Distin says:

    I first found you at least 4 years ago I wonder if I was at a design exhibition ? or if you had a display in a shop ?

  • Julian says:

    First time here. Google sent me here.

  • candygirl says:

    I started reading on 2009 since I found first design job.
    And I really love YD website.
