Chaos Theory For Books

Posted: 24 Jun 2010 03:59 AM PDT

How do you arrange your bookshelf? Fat to thin, tall to short? Horizontal, vertical….so many ways to do one thing; filling up the bookshelf! On my shelf chaos theory rules; no matter how neatly I arrange it, the order of books get all jumbled up after I've pulled out a couple for reading. "Need Not Arrange Anymore" brings art to the way we pile up books. A neat looking shelf with tons of attitude!

Dirty Linen Goes Straight To The Closet!

Posted: 24 Jun 2010 03:45 AM PDT

The notion of dumping laundry in a basket and then taking it out on laundry-day will probably be redundant in the future. All you will need to do is hang your clothes in a specialized closet and await molecular technology to do its thing. The Clean Closet is your laundry basket, washing machine and drying cabinet – all rolled into one. Using its tech, it scans clothes for stains etc and removes it, freshens it (de-odorizes), and that too without using water.

Going by the multiple solutions perceived by designers for doing laundry, its either a detachable drum or cleaning clothes without water that seems to be the fixation. What do you think?

Memory Clip-on

Posted: 24 Jun 2010 02:01 AM PDT

Although I find hanging my USB stick around my neck quite alright, I wouldn't mind if it came as a clip-on. Something that looked like this Metro USB Clip would be perfect; slip it securely on a pocket. The added advantage of auto backup on second drive, sliding feature and color changeable shells, transforms it from a regular stick to something different.

Beer Energy

Posted: 24 Jun 2010 12:03 AM PDT

There’s a time before a meal when some people get prepared, get super hungry, get so fantastically ready to eat. This time is called the “appertivo time,” and during this time people drink alcohol. They drink beer. They have a good time. Carlos Zanotti Cavazzoni of Raver Studio had an amazing idea. Why not signify this pre-meal energy with light? How about putting that light in the base of a glass for beer? Fabulous! Completely fabulous and beer-sexy.

The lamp in this “Energy Light” can be removed. The lamp can be adjusted in a range between red, blue, and green. And guess what? It’s LED.

Wood Yacht Fantasy

Posted: 24 Jun 2010 12:03 AM PDT

I almost titled this post “Orange Yacht Fantasy” because the redness in the seats throughout this fabulous ship. It really brings out this yellow tones in the wooden decks, but then I realized, yes, they are wood. And it’s totally sexy. Sexy like a boat is sexy. This is the “Sentori 50 L”, a 50 feet flybridge motor yacht. Its length is 15.3 meters, its beam is 5 meters, its displacement is 18 tons, and it’s got so many features that you’ll be swimming in em. Or you would, but you’ll be on a YACHT.

This orange momma has 2 x 900 PS YANMAR engines with a max speed of 40 knots. The co that ordered this sassy lady is Albatross Yachts and Composite ltd, Taiwan, so that’s who you’re gonna have to speak with if you want one. Motion Code Blue are the designers of water cruising dreams.

NOTE – here’s an extra tidbit sent in the mail to me from MCB about the wood:

The building material of the yacht is GRP, glass reinforced plastics, hull, superstructure and greenhouse are made out of this. I hope there is no misunderstanding regarding the wooden yacht, just all decks are covered by a teak wood decking which is almost standard in such a price segment.

The renderings are done in an evening light situation, so the silver varnish appears bronze-colored or wooden.

Super neat.

Now, if you’re an avid reader of Yacht-related posts on Yanko, you might recognize the hull design from the SENTORI 50 R, also designed by Motion Code Blue. Know why? Because it’s the same. The outside of this boat, for the most part, is the same as the 50 R, but in this case it’s got several greenhouses and flybridge layout options. And it’s much more colorful.

The dining table at the rear seats 8 and has a hot plate integrated into the surface. An extendable sunroof expands from the top deck to lessen the direct sunlight or to stop sprinkling rain, if you’re in that sort of a situation. In addition to the red sun beds and sofas, there’s a silver and black varnish throughout to make this boat a unique vision. The last thing you see at the back of the boat is the bathing platform, a small pool for children or a large storage space if not full of water. The steering console, other than the wheel, that means all the screens and gauges and whatnot, slides down completely out of view when not in use. On the top deck behind the driver there’s a sink, cooler, and food preparation area (for mixing drinks and whatnot.) Between the driver’s seat and the sink there’s a 37″ retractable LED-television.

And there’s a gold bar dispenser, and a drink-of-the-gods creator. Or I wish there was. Almost there! Nearly perfect yacht! ALSO before I forget: everyone should feel free to buy me this yacht. It’s kind of a tradition that I say I’m about to go buy the yacht or someone should buy me the yacht I’m writing about, so feel free to do that, this is my favorite one yet. Real orange only though, please. Hotness.

Stool of Heavy Thinking

Posted: 24 Jun 2010 12:03 AM PDT

Since the age of the Bauhaus, there have been many advances in the way of architecture and furniture design that lean not in the way of comfort, but in the way of utility instead. This is one of those things, though I don’t doubt that it’s up there amongst the comfortable set of your oddball furniture collection. This is what it’s designer simply calls “Stool”, but what I’ll call “Frnkwz Stool” for identification purposes.

This is a pyramid. Drawing on the idea that the lines between private and public space are becoming blurred, so too is the function of this chair. Because this stool is intended by the designer to be an expression of the world’s modern open information society, it employs urban aesthetics into its intended location: private living spaces.

This stool takes expanders, objects normally part of the “urban society,” and places them in this optical illusion stool to create stability. Then the frame as well as the bungee straps are in place to reduce the “formal complexity” of the whole contraption.

“In response to the current requirements of society the stool represents the zeitgeist.”
