Zarb Champagne

Zarb Champagne

Dutch brand agency THEY have commissioned a number of designers to design bottles for their own brand of champagne, Zarb (a French colloquialism meaning ‘bizarre’).

My favourites are the rocket launchpad by La Bolleur (top) and the magnum champagne ‘super-soaker’ by  Edhv (above).

Cyprien Côté

Cyprien Côté

The whalesong radio, or Chant de Baleines (top image) was the first of many bizarre inventions devised by Cyprien Côté, an industrial designer with a love for “people, nature and everything inbetween”.

10 years in the making, the radio was a collaboration with several colleges from all over the world, and employed special listening pods installed throughout the world’s oceans to pick up and transmit the sounds of whales. Only one of the listening pods still exists today but it does enable those lucky enough to have one of the radios to hear humpback whales a couple days out of each year.

The second image (above) shows Insectes Tremoloitants, an earthquake warning device that exploits the behaviour of the LoDuca Beetle, which can sense earth tremors and always comes out to the light when it senses anything. The device was a simple pair of chambers, comprising one dark room, one light room and a connecting tunnel. If a beetle ever appeared it would signal that an earthquake would be on the way. Apparently Insectes Tremoloitants has saved over 800 lives to date.
