Stitch-Up Your Chair

Posted in design, furniture design, product design, sustainable design with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2009 by anonimiss

Liked this concept for ‘stitch your own furniture’ by designer Oscar Nunez. Apart from being a low-cost option, this could also be developed into an eco-friendly product. A really potent idea…..

Can Deer Antlers Hold your Phone??

Posted in design, interior design, product design with tags , , , , , on December 18, 2008 by anonimiss

The Socket Deer designed by nendo made me smile…..These electrical outlet covers let you put your mobile phone on the wall as it recharges. The antlers are already the perfect shape to hold things, so the designers hardly had to modify the forms at all. The handsets are held tightly by the covers made of tough urethane rubber, which also protects the antlers from breakage should you bump into them. Socket-deer could also be used as a cover for light switches, and the antlers make an excellent hook for keys or accessories.

Fold Away your Bicycle!

Posted in design, product design with tags , , , on December 16, 2008 by anonimiss

I liked this bicycle – Grasshopper – designed by David Gonçalves for the 12th International Bicycle Design Competition. The bike consists of a foldable electric city bike, which could be carried around as a trolley and recharged when at rest. Great idea, attractive solution.

How Flat is That??

Posted in design, product design with tags , , , , on November 14, 2008 by anonimiss

Flat Bulb designed by Korean designer Joonhuyn Kim,  has a volume that is 1/3 smaller than ordinary bulbs. Its unique the flat shape takes care of the problem of rolling away, faced by ordinary bulbs (consequently preventing breakage). But what really makes this bulb special is that it reduces the cost of packing and transport and its unique shape allows it an easy storage. Wow!

Recycle – A ‘Soap’ Story…..

Posted in graphic design, product design with tags , , , , , on November 3, 2008 by anonimiss

Soso Designers from France designed these packaging concepts for Designboom’s Reinvent competition and incidentally won the first place in the packaging category. Cleaning products generate lot of wastes. In this concept, MR CLEAN becomes a company which actively takes care of environment. The designers enhanced the shape of classical liquid multipurpose cleaner, spray multipurpose cleaner, and dish washing detergent bottles, in order to invite consumers to keep and fill them at home. After the bottle purchase, the client will only buy concentrate refill pack to dilute it with water, and throw it after use in the recycle bin. These thin refill refer to the formal shape of cleanings products, instead of real bottles clients will buy images as a memory of them. I liked this concept because it offers a message to recycle while not compromising on the punch required to attract customers. Plus, while the idea of refills is not new, the idea of shaping the refills in the exact form of the original packaging is, and that ads that extra charm.

Recycling A Pot of Honey – How Sweet is That??

Posted in graphic design, green, product design with tags , , , , , on October 15, 2008 by anonimiss

I love the packaging designed by The Partners for Stanley Honey that promotes the re-use of the clay plant pot to encourage more honey making in the future! It is eco-friendly without compromising on  the graphic aesthetic and is not just about selling the product, but an attempt to make it sustainable.
