Here’s White & White LED Clock by Kibardin Design. This stylish, retro clock sits just as well on the desk as mounted on the wall. Besides having time, alarm and date it sports a light sensor that allows it to automatically dim when the room goes dark.
If you’re going to keep goldfish you ought to do it in a Fishscape Fishbowl, designed by Aruliden for Gaia and Gino. While holding 2.5 gallons of water the textured interior landscape looks good for both viewers and, presumably, the fish.
It’s a limited edition product though, so if you want one you better be there when it’s launched October 5th.
This is the GoggleDesk by Italian furniture manufacturers Babini, designed by Danny Venlet. Just pick and choose between glossy and matte finishes (you can have the inside matte and outside glossy as well, or vice versa) and a bunch of contrasting colors if white or black is too modest for you.
Here’s FRAMED*, a “platform for new art forms” conceptualized by Tokyo based interface designer Yugo Nakamura of tha ltd. Did I hear you ask “Well, isn’t it just a flat screen TV?”. No, it’s more than that. It’s a display acting as a frame for visual art, which you can then just either let animate on its own or interact with using, say, your iPhone. Since there’s a microphone, camera and stereo speakers (+ wireless audio transmitter) built into it as well I’ll just assume there’ll be some highly interactive things created for it, art reacting to its surroundings.
It’s 37.4 x 22 inches big and 1.3 inches deep, containing a 40" Samsung LED Full HD display. Underneath the hood you’ll find an Intel Core i5 based machine running Windows 7 supporting Adobe Flash, Processing, openFrameworks and Cinder. Add WiFi, Bluetooth and a USB connectivity to that and you’ve got something that might just be able to create something more interesting than a regular poster.
FRAMED* is not available for purchase just yet, but follow them on Facebook or Twitter to stay updated.
“With its cantilevered modules stacked upon each other at a single angled point, Equilibrium is a unique furniture piece that immediately catches attention by creating a sense of amusement and surprise.”
It might look fragile but it can hold more than 120 lbs (54 kg) worth of weight and it’s available in three different colors as well as natural walnut veneer. No word on pricing though.
I really like Chris Bigham’s Bike Shelf, a solid walnut wood shelf suspended by a solid steel square rod mount able to hold both your bike and whatever else you want to put on top of it. Probably the most elegant wall mount bike storage solutions I’ve seen and I want one!
Okay. There’s big speakers and there’s huge speakers, but I think Arcadian Audio’s Pnoe Horn deserves its own category (I had to publish this under “furniture” as well as “audio”, hah). After 10 years of development they’ve created a horn speaker designed to create “the smoothest, roundest path for the sound wave front, without any obstructions, so that there are no sources of standing waves and spurious reflections”. How about that now. It’s made out of shiny fibreglass (both in- and outside) with special damping materials and it uses the AER MD3B driver for “ultra detailed presentation and warm sound”.
There’s no word on pricing, but I think it’s safe to assume they’re crazy expensive.
This is Acquatinta Suspension Lamp by Produzione Privata, one of the most stylish pendant lamps I’ve seen in a long time. It’s designed by architect Michele de Lucchi and made from transparent green and mouth-blown Murano glass (dimensions: 8.75" H x 9.4"). It’ll set you back a bit though, $700.00 to be exact.
