Hammer Time Is So SEXY!

Posted: 08 Jun 2010 02:23 AM PDT

Honest Confession: I got this silly grin on my face as I write this post. Can't decide if I should to stick to the story of telling you about "Knock Knock", the personal back massager or continue to fantasize about the hot guy holding a hammer-shaped massager in his hand. I think it's the combo of brawn and quirky design that's got me all flustered, either ways…both are good enough to get rid of that scratchy sensation that I have on my back! Oh grow up! I'm allowed to flirt and have a wicked imagination!

Swanky Bluetooth With A Dash Of Convenience

Posted: 08 Jun 2010 02:04 AM PDT

If I had to point out the one really good feature in the Aliph Solo Bluetooth Headset, it would be the fact that it doesn't require separate recharging. Apparently the earpiece is consolidated into the cellphone and charges auto when you hook up your mobile phone for juice. Now plenty of us folks have charging-chores: laptops, phones, MP3 players…get the drift? So one less item to tank up, is a blessing!

Don’t Judge By The Cover

I read my book everywhere; on the bed, in a chair, on the pot (you do too!), on the park bench… Point is, once engrossed, you really don't bother about your posture and when that nagging pain in the neck comes visiting, you really wonder why! The Bookmate is a functional cover that protects the book, but can also be converted into a stand by folding out a few indents; encouraging a better posture for you. Although awkward and bulky it's got 2 things in its favor: illuminating strips that work as light source at night and edges that double-up as bookmarks.

The flipside is that you have to use it on a table; kinda reminds you of study-time in school. Say goodbye to curling up with a book!

Boxlike Business Interior

Posted: 08 Jun 2010 12:10 AM PDT

Welcome to the “Toolbox,” a design interior made for incubating ideas and working in a creative manner efficiently, effectively, and in as lovely an environment as possible. Made specifically to “mediate user plurality and diversity with the coherence of the design concept.” Made of a series of both standard and odd materials such as cork and rubber. It’s all very boxy, as I say.

This interior’s made to both inspire work and works with varying levels of privacy. That’s exactly the kind of environment I thrive in. When you’ve got to harvest the bits of your brain that are most active, the ability to change environments at will is severely important. It looks to me like this place has got it.

In the lobby area alone, there are 400 different polygon shapes reflecting the interior of the full space. Inside you’ll find a meeting room, kitchen, working spaces, and a large relaxation area.

Designer: Caterina Tiazzoldi
Concept: Aurelio Balestra, Giulio Milanese, Caterina Tiazzoldi
Team: A. Balzano, G. Bonavia, H.Cany, L.Croce, M.Fassino, M.Pianosi, and C.Caramassi

Good Head for Sitting On

Posted: 08 Jun 2010 12:10 AM PDT

Dearest David, thanks for standing around for so long. You know how many times Michaelangelo’s David has been reproduced? Many, many times, perhaps even endlessly. But almost always in full. How useless is a 20 foot tall nude man? If he’s made of iron, quite. How about if we just chop off his head? Well then! That’s something we can use, innit?

This interpretation of David’s head is made of polygons. Sharp edges for the future of mass produced culture all around the world! In this case, done in great taste if I do say so myself.

This head wont roll! For sitting only.

Detector VS Black Skin Cancer

Posted: 08 Jun 2010 12:03 AM PDT

Just yesterday I wrote about a lovely tea container by Antonia Haaf, today Haaf’s got a device for us that detects Black Skin Cancer. Wow! It is a gift you receive as a designer when you’ve given the opportunity to work on even as small amount as 2 projects with such a different set of intentions. When you get rid of your skin cancer, have a nice cuppa to celebrate. Or maybe have a cuppa if you detect that black spot as NOT being cancer. How about that?

This project goes by the name “Factor 61.” It’s a medical device made for the early detection of Black Skin Cancer. Analyzing 2D and 3D characteristics from melanocytic lesions with just one shot. Using a secret algorithm, the device recognizes critical lesions such as the nodular melanome.

Devices such as these, when they’re made to be manufactured cheaply and distributed to the places they’re needed, can be extremely helpful to the world at large. Detection is the first step in deletion.

But for now, wear sunscreen. “Factor 61″ gets it’s name from UV protecting cream that goes all the way up to 60. Factor 61 adds another notch.

Turn it up to 11!

Designer: Antonia Haaf
