Now That’s A Spicy Egg

Posted: 14 Jul 2010 07:56 AM PDT

Designer Mike Flache has a wonderful aesthetic and a pleasing sense of humor. The Spice Egg is a magnetic salt cellar and pepper pot made of stainless chromium steel. Inspired by hundreds of mouth watering breakfasts around the world, he transformed the natural shape of a simple egg into a stylish accessory. Magnets in each section of the egg stick together and makes handling comfortable.

A Simplified Sink

Posted: 14 Jul 2010 07:53 AM PDT

As some designers seem intent on inundating sinks with complicate gadgetry, others are taking a simpler approach. The Flow is a sink with the tap, basin and u-bend integrated into just two pieces. In the quest to create something harmonious yet functional, the Flow is an example of when “less is more” might be better.

Redefining The Home Office

Posted: 14 Jul 2010 03:17 AM PDT

I work from home and as many may have seen I have an open desk in a secluded room. Not all working-from-home people are blessed like me to have a private office within the house. Many have to use their bedrooms or living rooms as their work area. In such homes, the office desk tends to be a complete misfit amongst the backdrop. The Buro can help redefine the office-home boundaries. It's a desk that is perfect for your work, but once you shut the cover down, it transforms into an elegant side table. Clever!

Firefighter’s Bread Crumbs

Posted: 14 Jul 2010 12:13 AM PDT

The job of a firefighter is diverse. They’ve got lots of tasks to take hold of, lots more than just blasting fire with water and the classic apprehending of tree’d cats. Sometimes they’ve gotta go on missions in the dark. Very often their job takes them through areas that’ve got little or no natural or artificial light, compounded by the fact that they work inside buildings, blocked sometimes from light completely. In these buildings, they’ve got to be able to find their way around, forward to the goal, and back home. It’s “Fire Line” to the rescue.

Designer Thomas Buisson innovates here on the already in place system of “olives” used by firefighters today. Firefighters wear gigantic, cumbersome gear, and this olive system is no exception. Thus, the Fire Line system is small, light, and incorporates a simple communication system to the outside world to boot.

Very hearty, too!

Vinyl Record Clocks of Many Shapes

Posted: 14 Jul 2010 12:03 AM PDT

Now, before I begin explaining what’s going on here, I’ve got to say that this ISN’T the first time I’ve seen someone apply the clock idea to a vinyl record. But- but! This is the first time I’ve seen someone do it so masterfully. These clocks are laser-cut to shapes that are fantabulous, wild, and weird. There’s a gun, a bird, a coffee pot, whatever you desire. Now think about that, that’s three ideas smashed into one – clock, music platter, and a die roll of a third ingredient.

In addition to the enticing nature these clocks already present, let me throw another tasty carrot into your soup: perfect uniqueness. Each one of these records is cut to a pattern that can be reproduced, right? That’s not the unique part. What is unique is both the rotation the plate is at when it’s under the laser, yes, and then the limited nature of the plate itself. Every record you put your hands on is limited edition. Did you know that?

Take a peek! If you’ll look close up with your eyeballs at the rim around the sticker center of the vinyl, you’ll see an etched set of numbers and/or letters, along with a mark or initials. This is the mark of the inspector! Each and every record you put your hands on is inspected by a unique inspector for quality assurance. This inspection process has always lent itself to high quality records of course, but along the way, has also added a rare value to each piece of music history. And now- time history!

*”plate” is another word for “record”, this comes from the idea that the record resembles a plate that you’d put your food on and eat off of.

Make The Halo, Bike!

Posted: 14 Jul 2010 12:03 AM PDT

How safe is your bicycle out there in the wilderness? The city is full of bike thieves. Has been since the beginning of bikes. Completely full. So what are you going to do about it? Slap a chain on there? No way! It’ll be chopped off in a moment’s notice! Tie it up with a rope and a dog? No way! They love treats! So what? Call on the power of heaven to help you? Maybe… It’s the “Halo” bicycle lock, for holy protection!

The halo, by definition, is a disk or a loop hanging over the head of a saint or an angel. Something holy that has within it the power of the heavens. So what does that say about the Halo Bike Lock?

It says it WORKS.

The Halo uses a wireless Eye-Fi card that, once activated, sends an alert to your cellphone “the moment your lock is tampered with.” Wowza! Then there’s the shape of course, a ring for ease in application.

Like devine protection.
