Seeing the curvy shape it puts up, we’d probably not be in love with the Drop as a magazine stand. The look that it gives is an entirely different matter though. The water drop shape can hold a few magazines or paperbacks and also function as a bookmark, which is the part where you just put the magazine upside down on any stand. Well yes, the work of Designest looks good, but this one is not really that much appealing when it comes to functionality.
The mind always takes a liking to things unique and creative, and the Lasso Wardrobe seems to satisfy both criteria. Designed by J. Hemann and Kai Linke, “Catching the Wild” lasso wardrobe has an exterior of polyester rope and a structure of steel to lend support. The design itself hails the Wild West, in appearance and in style. It is available as a limited edition item limited to 99 pieces from Zurich-based distributor Waldraud.
This cute Little Black Dresser ought to find love for its looks. Made out of MDF, maple veneer and aluminum, the dresser is the work of Vancouver based Straight Line Designs.
“I’m looking good. Made the right choice buying this mirror. Did I say I’m looking good?” Well that’s what we envision conversations with the self would go like for those who bought this mirror and standing in front of it. Now that’s not at all a bad thing, considering the mirror does look really cool.
London has one of the busiest airports in the world, if not the busiest. As demand continues to rise, there will be a constant need for expansion. Land though, comes at a premium, and might involve having a number of people move and result in quite a few localities being destroyed. A proposed plan by construction company Beckett Rankine envisions a floating airport on the Thames estuary.
Jet Handheld Vacuum concept marries the unlikely world of vacuum cleaners and the iconic design of Harley Davidson, perhaps with a sprinkling of handheld guns. The concept by Jurmol Yao takes shape as a sleek vacuum cleaner with the looks of the body of a Harley and a leather seat.
Coming straight from the department of “why didn’t anyone think of this earlier?” the Art Radiators are well, radiators; except of the looking cool and not being ugly part. The Eiffel Tower radiator is quite self-explanatory, while its sibling, the Susie Radiator might as well have been a nice, flowery art piece.
Seeing all the advances in science, we’re pretty pissed there have been no advances in magic; because dammit, Aladdin had his flying carpet centuries ago and we don’t nearly have something like that. Thankfully, we can always turn to designers to make us feel better. Now the 1001 chair might now actually fly, but the baby sure gives a nice feeling of sitting in the air. The 1001 chair was designed and built by Thomas Hiemann and Markus Dilger, who apparently have no plans on commercial production and sale. Bummer.
The world still sits on the risk of a nuclear war, even though the shadow of the Cold War might have gone away. Mushroom Lamp by designers h220430 seeks to bring people attention to the subject of the still looming threat, hoping that awareness would help reduce the imminent threat. This does not really seem like an ideal approach, considering the lamp would appear more like a trophy, rather than an actual incentive to world peace.
Sea-life inspired pendant lamps by California based designer Roxy Russell take their laser-cut mylar material to a shape that looks much like Jellyfish. The Medusae collection has a lot of different forms to show, each in some way similar to the tentacled fish of the sea. Someone should probably look at Cthulhu now, we don’t want him to feel left out.
