    Being Able To Split In Half Makes The ALEX Bottle Infinitely Easier To Clean

    If there’s any knock to be made on water bottles, it’s the fact that they’re tough to clean. I mean, they’re bottles, so they’re narrow and taper at some point — being hard to clean kind of comes with that territory. ALEX is a new water bottle that overcomes that obstacle with a simple redesign. Like other portable water bottles, you can fill it with your favorite beverages to take along to the gym, the park, or wherever you end […]

    A Beehive-Inspired Design Allows This Hardware-Free Ruche Shelf To Support Up To 176 Pounds Of Gear

  • This Expandable FUGU Suitcase Can Go From Carry-On Size To Maximum Check-In Size At The Push Of A Button

    This Expandable FUGU Suitcase Can Go From Carry-On Size To Maximum Check-In Size At The Push Of A Button

    Luggage isn’t the kind of thing we typically see plenty of innovations on.  In the rare cases that we do, it’s usually minor stuff like adding a laptop stand here, a scooter there, or a modular system for more easily cramming into tight compartments.  This FUGU Luggage changes that, reinventing the travel essential into a whole other type of bag we’ve never seen before. Need a small carry-on for a short trip?  FUGU can play the part.  How about a […]

  • These Beautiful Coastal Quilts Make For The Perfect Pirate Blanket

    These Beautiful Coastal Quilts Make For The Perfect Pirate Blanket

    If seafaring pirates ever made their own blankets (instead of just plundering the nicest one they can find), we’re guessing it will look like something like these Coastal Quilts, each of which come adorned with a map of the shoreline of a beautiful coastal city.  Except instead of the places featured in this collection, it will probably be ornamented with layouts of the places where they took the most plunder.  Which, admittedly, would have been more awesome. Made by Haptic […]

  • 3Moods Is An Incredible Transforming Furniture

    3Moods Is An Incredible Transforming Furniture

    Transforming furniture is nothing new.  We’ve seen baby furniture that goes from cradle to crib to play table, as well as a bed that turns into a study table, among a host of others.  The 3Moods, however, does them all one better by turning into nearly every furniture you will need inside a small apartment. Spanish designer Humberto Navarro isn’t playing around.  This thing can be equipped into two kinds of sofa (one for four people, another for two), a bed, […]

  • Cut & Fold Origami Chair Is The Most Stylish Folding Chair Ever

    Cut & Fold Origami Chair Is The Most Stylish Folding Chair Ever

    Folding chairs always tend to look a little bit on the ugly side, which is why they tend to stay in backyards and basements, rather than more prominent areas of the house.  Not the case, though, with this Cut & Fold Origami Chair, a stylish modern lounger that can be easily folded for easy transport and storage. Created by blackLAB architects Andrea Kordos and Tony Round, the lounge chair uses multiple pieces of wood that are attached to each other […]

    Supersize Bed: Is That Giant French Fries On My Headboard Or Is This All A Dream?

    I know, French fries are horrible.  They pack a ridiculous amount of calories, yet you need so much to get full, all while being desert-level barren when it comes to nutrition.  But you know what?  They taste so good.  And you know what else?  They make for an incredibly fun-looking bed, too.  Seriously, just look at this Supersize Bed. A collaboration between Cecilia Carey and Harry Par, it’s a bed frame with a headboard styled to look like a giant […]

    Less Mess Placemat Sticks To Table So Children Can’t Knock Over Their Plates

    While the Less Mess Happy Mat won’t exactly eliminate the catastrophic mess that inevitably comes when you allow little children to handle their own utensils in the dining table, it can definitely prevent some of it from happening.  Emphasis on “some of it.”  And, yes, that’s good enough. Overturned trays?  Not happening.  Pancake plates dragged towards the floor?  Not with this thing.  Knocked down glass of juice?  Well, yes.  Hey, we said “some of it.” Designed by Lindsey Laurin, the […]

    Overade Plixi Folding Helmet Collapses Into An Impressively-Compact Package

    We’ve seen foldable helmets before.  Not being first doesn’t mean you can’t be the most impressive, though.  That’s exactly what the Overade Plixi does, as it’s able to fold into an impressively compact bundle. Although it doesn’t quite shrink into a pile you can drop in a jacket pocket, it does fold up enough that you can tuck it in a corner of your bag, with none of the usual bulk a regular bicycle helmet will take up.  It can […]

    Fold Pot Is A Flower Pot That Can Grow Along With Your Plants

    Unless you want the hassle of transferring plants into a different pot as they grow bigger, you plant them early on in a pot that anticipates their future size.  Of course, it looks awkward as heck when you’ve got that tiny thing growing in a gigantic pot.  Won’t be the case with the Fold Pot, which starts out small but grows larger to accommodate your plant’s growth.

  • Axe Baseball Bat Handle Redesign Leads To More Power, Less Injuries

    Axe Baseball Bat Handle Redesign Leads To More Power, Less Injuries

    Combining an axe and a baseball bat for the heck of it isn’t that far out.  For one, they’re both hand tools that you swing to hit objects with.  The Axe Bat, however, combines the two for a more practical reason: giving the baseball bat an axe handle actually makes it more efficient to use. At least, that’s the claim behind the new bat design, which its creators posit, can deliver more power, enhance grip stability, and create additional rotational […]

    A self-heating butter knife is great, since it will melt the butter all on its own, making it easy to spread on your slice of bread every morning.  If using power to lather your breakfast in butter sounds overkill, however, you might want to turn your attention to the ButterUp instead. Designed by Sacha Pantschenko, Norman Oliveria, and Craig Andrews, it’s a clever redesign of the classic butter knife.  While it looks like a regular butter knife at first glance, […]

Like a canyon, the tray comes with raised surfaces and deep ravines, all marked by lines that make for a mesmerizing sight to behold.  Creator Artnomos, a Hong Kong-based design team, describes it as “undulating” […]
