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…..

Just Throw me a Line…..

Posted in furniture design, interior design, product design with tags , , , , on September 21, 2008 by anonimiss

In designing the “Line” furniture system, designer Aykut Erol uses a single no-break line, to transport a work table, hanger, bookshelf, wine rack, CD rack, TV stand and lighting unit to your living space. Minimalism at its purest, the potential for storage is infinite and can be adapted to home or office.Loved it!

Balance you Books

The “Maintain the Balance of your Knowledge”, by Denis Oh is a hanging book rack that is sure to test your sense of equilibrium. Accommodating every swing of reading mood, the pendulum-like counter-balancers will ensure you don’t overload the heavy stuff if you want to stay on an even keel. Really cool!

Recycled Plastics doth School Bags make…..

Posted in graphic design, green, product design with tags , , , , on September 19, 2008 by anonimiss

The ‘big kid eco pack’ by Dante Beatrix is a collection of sturdy backpacks, constructed with nylon made entirely from recycled plastic drinking bottles and trimmed with naturally biodegradable canvas. Each of these packs keeps seven 16oz bottles out of the environment. While I liked the concept a lot, I also liked the simple but bold design and colors, which I think are essential to teach kids about the recycling issue in an interesting fashion – to show them that recycling is not boring!

When Rulers Fold….??

Posted in design, product design with tags , , , , , on September 19, 2008 by anonimiss

Found this funky fiberglass folding ruler at KIOSK, amongst a bunch of other interesting items. Made of Fiberglass & Metal, the ruler is 1 meter long when fully extended. And as the description on the website says, ‘It looks great, takes very little space and is handy when your architect starts talking about 67 centimeter wide windows, and you believe that you are getting a 67″ panorama-view’. Cool!

Old Blankets + Recycle = Beautiful Rug

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

This recycled blanket rug by Tejo Remy and Rene VeenHuizen uses strips of old blankets in a new way. Turned on edge, the blanket strips give the rug cush and a luxurious thickness. I love the beautiful blend of colors that would suit almost all spaces and the amoebic shape.

When Leaves Light-up Your Street…..

Posted in design, green, product design with tags , , , , , on September 18, 2008 by anonimiss

The ‘Invisible Streetlight’ designed by Jongoh Lee are another example of the intricate bond between design and technology. The leaves play a role in making the invisible streetlight ‘invisible’ without damaging nature. During daytme, the leaves are almost invisible, mingling with the leaves on the tree, while at night time the leaves come to life with the help of a luminance sensor.

The leaves emits light at nighttime by saving energy from sunlight during the day. The most innovative element of Invisible Streetlight is that it does not require a support because the flexible body in the shape of tree branch is directly installed to the trees lining a street. Installation is simple in parks and outskirts of urban centers, and the Invisible Streetlight does not spoil scenic beauty of the surrounding areas. But yes, you need tree-lined streets for this amazing concept to work well.
