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.
If you’d like to light up in style, burning a pile of dollars with it, the Alfred Dunhill Turbo Lighters might be an intelligent choice. The stylish lighters are made from premium materials, have a turbo gas mechanism and hail their style to the Dunhill’s sports lighters of the 1920s. The question here would be the price; these things cost between $700 and $1125.
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.
Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang has a penchant for explosions, and he demonstrated it fairly well in this explosive lighting “ceremony” of a live pine tree that stood outside the Sackler Gallery. He made use of 2,000 black smoke drops to add an illusion of a smoke tree behind the pine before he finally blew it off.
Since humans barge into the habitats of wild animals all the time, we guess it would only be fair to let the animals have an outing into something that is almost exclusively a human area: the supermarkets. In his series Garden Fresh, Agan Harahap mixes the worlds of animals and the “landscapes” of grocery stores and supermarkets.
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.
Five year old Finn probably has the most awesome bed compared to his peers, and probably 99.99% of the human population. And he gets that thanks to his enterprising father Jeremiah Gorman who thought an old TV panel could find some innovative use in the child’s bedroom.
Appearances take on an entirely different view, depending on the filter you have on your eyes. It becomes so very obvious in the infrared photography of French photographer David Keochkerian. The magical photographs show a wonderland that could be an alien world, or a concept world created in graphics. We like it.
This Steampunk Arm Guard has a keyboard that lights up in the power of Bluetooth and functionality to complement its wonderful Victorian looks. The functional keyboard is accompanied by a touchpad and laser pointer to connect to devices and work its magic; all in Victorian ways of steam we’re sure.
