Walking on fresh grass


They say walking on fresh grass increases your blood circulation; I can’t vouch for that! Anyways, it is a reason to get going to the nearest park, remove your expensive Jimmy Choo’s and prance around. The Moss Carpet looks at getting the grass to your feet, and that too in your loo! Made from imputrescible foam called plastazote, the mat includes ball moss, island moss and forest moss. The humidity of the bathroom ensures that the mosses thrive. And that’s why you need to place it there and not anywhere else. Little gnomes not included.

Boombastic surround sound or single stereo


Earbuds for iPod and gang are good enough, but in the interest of avoiding ear damage, its always advisable to hear your music over normal speakers at least when you are at home. There are many options available in the market but the Designit Concept takes an edge because it offers the option of cluster or standalone.

The key words that David Granath takes to describe these sound clusters are flexible and mobile. Use single pieces or use a bunch of them together, the choice is entirely yours. Collectively they are ideal to create stereo or surround sound. The good news is that you can plug them into the wall socket for power or hook them to some cumbersome cables and then to a power source. Sound is transmitted via Bluetooth, Wlan and works with iPod and many other players.

Mac Gyver’s speakers




With all the hot-to-trot conceptual design work out there, it takes quite a person to just sit back and kick out the jams on a speaker set like this. Presenting the iPod Ghetto Accessory. iPod with classic earbuds, two toothpicks, no girls, and four cups. What else could a person ask for?

Does my butt look big in this ?



Designer: Hemlock Design

As a child, going to the fair was a blast! My favorite part was walking through the funhouse trying to get out in one piece. The most hysterical part of the funhouse was the mirrors, which morphed our bodies in a variety of shapes and sizes causing outbursts of laughter and enjoyment. Hemlock Design Firm has re-created this classic mirror design, with their Funhouse Mirrors. Hemlocks mirrors which are handcrafted by artist John Balough, are more sophisticated and stylish and are much more pleasing to the eye and body. Available in standard, mini, toy and a larger custom design, Funhouse Mirrors add modern geometric style to both residential and commercial interiors alike.

Mrs Hudson



Its name is Mrs. Hudson. Yes she has a name. The design was inspired by a modified water drop, whatever that means. I’m seeing more smoking pipe tho, but hey, it recently won a Russian bathroom design contest sponsored by Roca so it must be good. I just wonder who Mrs. Hudson is and if she knows a loo was named after her.

Be the ultimate party multi-tasker


Designer: Ken Goldman [ Via: Fred ]

Most of us have been to parties and enjoyed the conversation, atmosphere and most of all the cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Yet the difficulty in trying to be social while carrying a plate of food and a glass of wine in your hand is quite difficult and sometimes next to impossible. Ken Goldman’s design, Fingerfood is the answer to those who are not naturally born multi-taskers. Shaped like little plates, Fingerfood slides onto your finger like a ring, allowing for perfect balance and control. Each package of Fingerfood contains ten plates which are sized “one size fits most”.

Pea speaker



Designer: Lu Le

The Pea Speaker system is bound to be costly, incurring damages from being tossed around, but that’s what designer Lu Le wants – a playful way to share music. Each pod holds 7 wireless bluetooth speakers. Only one possesses the one ring to rule them all because it controls global volume. Each sphere is powered by a lithium ion rechargeable via induction when placed in the pod. The system doesn’t do surround sound since it can’t separate channels, but it’s a good way to fill a large area with a mixed stereo track. Snazzy!

Recover shelter





Designer: Matthew Malone

I’d wager if chronic disaster survivors had a choice of where to lodge, they’d choose what’s actually called the Recover Shelter. With several components that make it eco-friendly, cheap to produce, easy to transport, reconfigurable, and adaptable to multiple environments, Matthew Malone’s design has great potential for emergency situations and beyond…

Designed for disaster relief, the Recover Shelter can house a family of four for a month. It can be set up by one person in minutes, collapsed into either of two configurations for transportation (horse-shoe shape or flat), and is made of 100% polypropylene.

The polypropylene makes the Recover Shelter 100% recyclable, the ridges can collect drinking water, and the structure can be covered in local materials for better insulation.

A wonderful giant accordion house to for those who are disaster ridden, or a super-hip tent for the super-hip green hipster-camper.

Conceptual Ear Buds for Philips




Designer: Yoonsang Kim

Actually the unique shape serves several purposes. It fits snug in your ear, easily loops together around your neck when not in use, and somehow prevents bacterial growth which is 700 times more concentrated in regular ear buds. If it weren’t just a concept, would you buy one?
