Now that’s a Hot Fireplace!

1 Share

inframe_fire_place_layout

Fireplaces might just be the perfect method of creating a warm, homely and cozy atmosphere within a room, but it’s fair to say that some apartment’s or house’s décor just doesn’t welcome the conventional fireplace.

‘In frame’ is a modern take on the traditional fireplace and it aims to connect the past and the present through carefully considered design. The elegant frame that surrounds the circular central section has been designed to be rotational, allowing it to be easily adjusted. This frame also creates an area to hang basic laundry, so it can dry.

In frame’s flexibility doesn’t end there, the user has the choice of either hanging it on the wall, so it mimics the location of a traditional fireplace, or having it freestanding in the center of the room. Whichever option they choose, it will be sure to make for a stunning addition to the room!

A rectangular Pokéball for pigments

palette_pico_1

Smaller, sleeker, and much more powerful than its predecessor, the Pico is our favorite Cube’s younger sibling. The size of your finger, Pico puts color knowledge at your fingertip, letting you record hues and shades from around you, to use as inspiration or reference for your work.

Partnering with the Pico app on your phone, you can record a vast multitude of colors from around you, giving them your own names, creating a color library of your life. Pico’s small size makes it easier to carry around with you, and it even comes with a hole for a lanyard, letting you hang it around your neck! A simple single button interface allows you to ‘click’ colors by simply placing the Pico directly on top of the color you want to capture and hitting the shutter button. Pico’s color matching engine allows it to perfectly capture color values, and even cross-reference them with color guides and standards, so whether you use those colors digitally or in print/paint, you know that what you see is what you get. Designed in black anodized aluminum, the Pico feels incredibly slick and premium and we’re putting it on our must-buy list for all designers!

How this Adidas concept shoe redefines design-for-performance

1 Share

Print

What looks like an incomplete wireframe may just be the most efficiently designed and unique looking running shoe yet. Made for the 40-yard dash, Daniel Coric’s shoe is completely bespoke, fits like a glove (for your foot), and focuses on delivering on performance by wrapping around your shoe, augmenting its abilities.

Taking spike positioning details from Adidas’ Track Spike and Combine Cleat, and taking into account wind flow analysis around the foot, Daniel developed the conceptual Adidas ONE/1. The ONE/1 wraps around your shoe like a second skin, but doesn’t look like one. Designed to be made out of interconnected cylindrical channels, the ONE/1’s design looks like a loosely woven mesh that’s breathable and effective. In fact the cylindrical wraparound makes up the entire shoe. It stretches with ease, guides air around the foot efficiently while minimizing drag, and provides a secure yet spring-like quality, adding to the foot’s performance, making it better. The ONE/1 also looks nothing short of incredible. The aesthetic it explores isn’t just new and unique, it also looks incredibly hard to replicate. Designed around your foot’s 3D scans, and wrapping around them in its spectacular fashion, the ONE/1 may boost your performance, but it’ll definitely boost your confidence!

Chandeliers from the future!

1 Share

versailles_chandelier_1

A silver winner of the LG OLED Design Competition, the Versailles Chandelier by Alexandre Boucher mixes history with the future. It uses flexible OLED technology to create a chandelier that visually stays true to its roots, mimicking the overall silhouette, but rather than using bulbs to illuminate the massive lighting fixture (and glass/crystals to disperse the light), the Versailles Chandelier lights up itself, thanks to the properties of OLEDs.

Fit to be seen in any palace ballroom, the Versailles chandelier has a luxury-meets-steampunk appeal. Paper-thin, and extremely energy efficient (courtesy the LEDs), the chandelier manages to look modern and vintage both at the same time. It may not be as intricate and ornate as its ancestors, but it definitely isn’t something your eyes could ignore!
