Veil

Veil, from Tokyo designer Dan Tomimatsu, is a vase in which a single bloom can be hung upside down, it’s beauty admired as, over time, it eventually becomes a dried flower.

Veil

A stainless steel pin with a hexagonal section is pushed through the flower’s stem, then balanced across the top of the tapered glass tube, the inside surface of which varies organically in thickness, creating the impression that the flower is under water.

The Copenhagen Wheel

Devised by some clever chaps over at MIT, The Copenhagen Wheel turns an ordinary bike into a smart electric hybrid and mobile sensing unit, simply by adding an additional part to your back wheel.

Not only does the device regenerate energy, converting braking power into acceleration power when you need the help, the wheel also works wirelessly with an iPhone to deliver information about your route, your travelled distance, pollution levels, traffic congestion and road conditions in real-time based on your GPS location. You can even use your phone to unlock and lock your bike and select how much the motor assists you.

The Copenhagen Wheel

All of the sensors, instrumentation, batteries and motor are packed in the Copenhagen Wheel itself (which is actually just the hub) and a specially devised spoking method allows the hub to mount on any bicycle wheel rim.

OfficePOD

I want this for my garden.

OfficePOD is a prefab home office unit that provides nearly 7′ x 7′ of office space and storage in a curvy, contemporary package. I have always said that a man needs a shed in which to tinker – I reckon this comes close as a viable alternative for the 21st century.

Maison Martin Margiela: Untitled

Nice understated packaging, for Untitled, a new fragrance from Maison Martin Margiela. The use of Olivetti type works really well in a beautifully ‘spare’ concept that was created in collaboration with Fabien Baron.
