beosound8

leave a comment »

One thing upfront. I do not care how this thing sounds. Looking like a pair of ultra-futuristic robotic E.T. eyes is reason enough for my gadget lust. The BeoSound8 encapsulates the Bauhaus movement perfectly, with simple shapes and obvious usage. Dieter Rams will be proud.

To match your personal taste and the room you place it in, BeoSound 8 comes in either black or white with aluminium details and matching power cord. When you feel the need to add a splash of colour to the room, the list of options includes six fabric speaker covers in lavender blue, purple, green, yellow, black and white.

bang!

leave a comment »

For a little more fun in our daily lives, Taiwan design company bitplay has created a design concept for Bang!, a lamp that shoot the lights out. You fire a gun at the lamp to turn it off. The light goes out and the lampshade knocks to the side, showing that it’s been hit.

soap flakes

leave a comment »

This is a brilliant brilliant idea! Soap Flakes by Nathalie Stämpfli gives you the hygienic plus side of liquid soap, where you don’t have to be touching the wet bar soap of the previous user, and the plus side of bar soaps, which are great at saving space in shipping containers instead of moving water all around the globe.

Today, most of the soap we use is liquid soap, which contains a lot of water. Block soap instead is more concentrated and therefore has some ecological benefits: You don’t transport unnecessary water around. In place of plastic bottles you can simply use paper for packaging. The solid blocks can easily be piled and allow a greater space efficiency in a truck.

authentics pen clip

leave a comment »

I am a notebook hoarder. I have so many of them I can never finish using them. Yet I continuously buy more and more of them. Of all the notes books that I have ever used, the one thing I really wished I have is a pen holder! There is never a right place for them between notebooks. Finally, the Pen holder Pen Clip by Stefan Diez made for Authentics solves my problem by attaching itself to any note book and any pen or pencil. Now I can have my pen eaxactly where it needs to be, beside my notebook!

Perfect for folks where exact timing does not matter as much as style.. the ZIIIRO watch.

The ZIIIRO Gravity presents a simple and unique way of reading time. The tip of the inner swirl represents the current hour, while the outer swirl displays the minutes, with a continuous gradient movement showing the passing through time. Resting on our patent pending bracelet strap, it combines silicone and metal to form a flexible bracelet watch. This model also features an interchangeable clock body switchable with multi color straps. ZIIIRO Gravity comes in 6 colors of white, red, green, yellow, blue and magenta.

folded

leave a comment »

I always love the idea of making something seem like its something else.( I am sure there’s a big word for that, but I digress.) Raw Edges, an Israeli firm formed by Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay, from whom we recently loved their Coiling Chairs, created a ceramic tile resembling folded paper. The result is something that seems fragile and tactile. Comes in three models, maxifolded, midifolded and minifolded. via experimenta

clock for an architect

leave a comment »

Daniel Weil latest extraordinary project is a clock, its parts stripped from each other and displayed for the word to see. All the basic runnings of the a clock is there, beautifully presented, all plated in chrome. I especially love how the numbers for the hours and seconds were done, one set on the inside rim, and the other on the outside. Simply beautiful!

Constance Guisset decided it a good idea to mix fishes with birds in a beautiful, home proud ‘Duplex’ structure of a cage and tank. So now birds can try swimming and fishes can… well… feel doubly enclosed in a caged up tank?
