Social Distancing designs needed along with face masks to be safe in the post-quarantine world!

2020 has surely brought about a change in our priorities. Where Instagram was earlier filled with people jet-setting across the globe to exotic, unseen locations and inspiring wanderlust for everyone else, our mindless focus on self and not caring enough about the natural resources that quietly supported us led to this COVID-19 pandemic. The question...

This e-bike changes the fundamental visual template of motorcycle design

It’s difficult to say if the modern day motorcycle was inspired heavily by the need to look like a muscular horse. I’m talking about the chest-shaped fuel tank, the common need to have the taillight project outward like a horse’s tail, or the visor above the headlight almost being reminiscent of a horse’s mane. I’m not drawing definitive conclusions...

This futuristic cabin is the ultimate work from home investment for 2020!

The second-half of 2020 is here and rescue from the pandemic is not in sight! The work from home situation that started off as a temporary thing is soon looking permanent and it’s high time we carve out a space for ourselves (how long are we going to hijack the dining table?) to concentrate and make the most of our work hours. The Livit Studypod is...

Ingenious cup uses a camera-inspired aperture closing system to become water-tight!

The beauty about inspiration is that it can strike anytime and from anywhere. August Kekulé discovered the ring-shaped Benzene molecule after seeing a snake eating its own tail in a vivid dream. George de Mestral invented Velcro after he saw cockleburs attaching to his dog’s fur. Teabags were created as the result of people accidentally dipping tea...

Make meal prep hassle-free again with this space-saving cutting board!

One of the biggest lifestyle changes for me was meal prep, it eliminates the fuss of deciding what to cook every day and made grocery shopping so much easier. One of the best parts was I didn’t have to order out when I was at work and it made me realize how quickly “But it is just $12!” adds up when you practically do it every other day. Seems like...

A small design detail on this umbrella makes it more paw-some than the others!

Designer He Yue observed that some people close their umbrellas and use it as a walking stick after it stops raining. He added a small detail on the stick that made the ‘Footprint’ umbrella instantly loveable. It’s not a revolutionary redesign but just taking into account human behavior and emotion to make you connect with daily objects some more. The...

This watch aims to repurpose the tonnes of electronic waste generated every year!

3D Architectural Renders so beautiful, you want them in your travel bucket list for real!

Imagine sitting on a beach, crystal clear blue waters, no traffic, smog, or dirt for miles – this is the ideal getaway that Paul Milinski at Vaulter brings to life with his 3D architectural renders. Let’s admit it, in these times, we all are secretly hoping the world goes back to normal in a week (whether our previous normal is good for the environment...

Designing for a better tomorrow – the innovative spirit that drives the Lexus Design Award 2020

The words “Design” and “Better” are bound pretty closely together. There is no design if it isn’t making a situation or an experience better, solving a problem, enriching a life, or transforming an industry.
