Sounds of F1 Racing Give Birth to Spectra Concept Car

Spectra concept car looks like a racer, but wait, we have to go deeper. Designer Teeravit Hanharutaivan has speed tied up in its DNA, for the shape of the spectra takes after sounds from the speedy beasts that race the F1. Teeravit built the form and shape of the Spectra to copy the audible sound spectrum that dominates the roar on the F1 track. This being just a design exercise, the designer doesn’t seem to have thrown in specs for the car. But then we have sounds of a car making a car. How cool is that?

Gigantic Lightbulb Wraps a Chandelier

King Edison Pendant Lamp comes in the shape of a light bulb, only, as light bulbs go, it is a gigantic one. It has to be huge because the bulb is merely a casing to hold a small working representation of a kings chandelier. Dimensions for the light bulb are a 15 centimeter diameter and a 21 centimeter height, so while the edison bulb itself is a behemoth, the chandelier it hosts is actually a miniature! Costs £480 ($735).

Hammock Chair

Goodness of a hammock meets the chair in the very interesting Cradle chair by British designer Benjamin Hubert. It includes a cushion for seating backed by a net structured like a hammock, so the chair overall becomes half a hammock. One where you sit rather than plain lay down. The hammock part uses a non elastic textile so the chair has the right tension to support the body.

Algae Bulb Lights Up With Biological Power

Algae Bulb lights up with the power of biological and chemical reactions to provide light almost equal to that from LEDs. Speaking from the concept view, that’s a very interesting theory. Basically, the bulb is a container for algae, where the power of the micro-organism is extracted to act as a power source that can light up LEDs for a few hours.

Quiet Chair is a Place of Zen

Quiet by London based studio TILT has been designed to be a chair that is also a personal space. It exhibits these qualities in the photographs where we see a person peacefully sitting inside the chair and quite shielded from the surrounding environment. The pentagonal shape is intended to feel like a cocoon, so a person could sit and relax inside, having some “me time.”

BMW Concept 90 Motorcycle

BMW is celebrating 90 years of BMW Motorrad with the Concept 90 motorcycle. A homage to the BMW R 90 S, the concept was presented at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2013. Built in partnership with former motorcycle racer Roland Sands and his team. Roland Sands Design have added a few custom parts to the motorcycle, giving the motorcycle a decidedly unique look, but one that sticks to the principle of BMW design.

BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe

BMW and Pininfarina have come together to develop the Gran Lusso Coupe. Design teams of both the brands worked together, so while the car has distinct curves from Pininfarina, it also sticks true to the BMW name. Unveiled at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the Lusso coupe concept complements its stylish exterior with equally good interiors finished in luxury that would be demanded of both these names coming together.

Geisha Lamps Play With Beauty

Geisha form a very interesting part of Japanese culture, marked by beauty, sensuality and grace. Designer Lorenza Bozzoli seeks to interpret the same grace into the Juuyo lamps. The name itself is derived from the predecessor of Geisha. Juuyo lamps are largely based on the wigs or the hairstyle Geisha are said to have adorned. The pendant lamps are available from Moooi in two designs, one showing peach blossoms, and the other depicting koi fish.

Screw Me

We have to admit we were mislead into believing that we would be looking at lamps. That’s just not what you expect to run into when you read “Screw Me.” The lamps by Jonathan Rowell make use of a screw like function to change their alignment and setting using the twists of the screw, but at the end of the day we feel like the name still overshadows the lamp. Oh hey, I think I’ll pay for a screw (me).

Tadam: Ceramics Baked to Become Jewelry

Tadam is a collection of ceramics baked into the shape of desserts, usually donuts or chocoltes and intended to be worn as jewelry. Because someone who wears donuts is just the dessert everyone’s been looking for. To add to the jewelry quotient, the ceramic desserts are often covered in gold and platinum to give them a touch of traditional jewelry, and probably to take away focus from them being donuts. Don’t listen to us though, we don’t know much about jewelry; we do know donuts though.
