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.
