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!

Get ‘Boxed’ into this Seat

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , , on September 24, 2008 by anonimiss

‘The Box’ designed by Pieter Jamart, is quite a wacky piece of furniture. In the first glance, it looks like a normal cardboard carton but on a closer inspection, you’ll observe that it’s soft and that you can sit on it. I like it, though so many of them in a space would make the space look more like a warehouse! Of course, it would be great for a context-specific interior design.

Bring On the Good Spirits!

The packaging design by  Transfer Studio for the ‘Tapio’, is a spirit mixed drink made from all-natural ingredients, really caught my eye…..for the simple and clean design that allows the color of the drink to contribute substantially to the overall appeal.

Pack Up Your Lamp

Posted in product design with tags , , on August 21, 2008 by anonimiss

David Gardner has designed this simple lamp, where the packaging itself becomes the product. Though I was initially not too happy with the shape of the lamp itself, the fact that the shape is completely determined by the electronic components that are packaged in it during transport made me change my mind. Interesting.

Paper or Plastic?

I came across this intriguing poster/article at the washington post website and I think the info needs to be shared since it give a useful insight into the eternal debate of whether paper or plastic is a better ‘green’ option. As it turns out, neither of them is ‘green’. Read through the poster to know more.

‘Carry’ Bag

Posted in graphic design, product design with tags , , , on August 6, 2008 by anonimiss

Loved the carry bag designed by Jamie Wieck that quite literally ‘carries’ your shopping. Am not too happy with the use of the transparent plastic bag, but I guess that was the only medium that offered scope for the desired effect. You win some, you lose some…..

Vitamin G

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

Is there a vitamin G? While I confess I do not really know, what I know is that the vitamin packages designed by Robert Ferrell surely made me look twice. The design, which has been developed with a keen eye on ‘typographic hierarchy and the 3D form’ as the designer says, is all the more brilliant due to its simplicity. Take a real close look at the pictures to appreciate the detailing. He sure has had his dose of Vitamin ‘G’!
