Drop Magazine Stand

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.

Lasso Wardrobe

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.

How To Deal With Land Shortage For Expansion: Floating Airports

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.

Flying Carpet Chair

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.

Mushroom Lamp Lights Up Like a Nuclear Cloud

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.
