Someone on Kenmare Street got their hands on what look to be the seating surfaces from three restaurant chairs. They fashioned them into this urban lounge integrated with a planter on a concrete pad. The backrest of the outermost seat copies the angle of the planter. I can't tell if

If you're prototyping things out of thick, flexible materials, this handy little tool might help. The Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl can be used to sew leather, webbing, canvas tarps, shoes, belts and other problematically-thick materials. It's also small enough to bring with you on a camping trip, allowing you to
It's fun watching different people's shop organization idiosyncrasies, seeing what drives them nuts and how they solved it. For Jeremy Schmidt, it was bugging him that his removable drawer inserts would shift around after one was removed. Ultra-organized Schmidt then designed this system for hardware organizing boxes that will not
Because this tutorial started with "Squeeze 27 diapers into a frying pan," it had my attention. Now I don't have any upcoming baby showers, nor am I a toy designer, nor a parent, but I was taken by this woman's very creative use of household items. How the heck did
The deadline for applying to SVA's MFA in Products of Design program is just one month away on January 15th, so if you're interested in grad school, you'll want to give this a hard look. Chaired by Core77's Allan Chochinov, the program is a "two-year, immersive program at the sweet
Road crews are a common sight in New York, with orange-vested men working on the street or partially submerged in it. They often have machinery and tools down in the hole, with cables running back to the truck. This presents a tripping hazard. The object you see here, made by

My borderline peanut butter addiction spurred me to create the PBspoon, which I designed to be the perfect spoon for extracting every last bit of peanut butter from the jar. A cross between a spoon and a spatula, the PBspoon has a rounded face to function like a traditional spoon,
We've covered the portable Sitpack at their launch, and commented on the product's potential utility in industrial design education. Now the designers are back with a killer upgrade called the Sitpack Zen, built with hi-tech materials and intended for longevity. The design changes make the Zen both stronger and lighter
Although they've been in business for twelve generations, you've probably never heard of William Whiteley & Sons. That's because the Sheffield-based manufacturer of scissors only sells to industry, creating specialty shears that cut through everything from carpet to carbon fiber, from Kevlar to leather. But now the company has designed
Earlier this week Elon Musk posted this mysterious Tweet, with no further explanation: What on Earth could it mean? People began speculating that it had to do with Tesla prices, and it also spawned this hilarious thread on pork chops. But the true answer can be found by looking
If you're in need of a smile this afternoon, take a minute to watch this video about graphic design power duo Ivan Chermayeff and Tom Geismar. Celebrating 60 years of collaboration this year, the 85 year old designers reflect on a few of their most iconic logos and their

The "IGUANEYE Jungle" grabs onto your feet and lets you move freely on any type of surface. A minimal piece of technical rubber only wraps around your big toe and your heel. By doing so, it secures a thick and soft ergonomic sole that attaches to the rubber piece like
The automotive version of an iPhone case. Because auto designers and manufacturers do not take parallel parking and paint-trading into consideration, motorists wishing to avoid scuffmarks must purchase these absurd, ugly things. It totally mars the lines of the car. What is the point of designing something beautiful, if it
Steven M. Johnson's "Patent Depending" series of inventions range from social commentary to plain ol' bizarre, and they always give us a laugh. So we've contracted him to let us publish one every week.
Although new evidence has emerged that proves beyond a doubt that the Earth is flat, Flat-Earthers apparently believe that Mars is round. With this ringing endorsement, NASA will continue sending Rovers to Mars. The only problem is, they can't exactly bolt a set of Goodyears to the Rovers
Having people over for the holidays? Maybe you can step up your hosting game with some designey table settings. First off, here are the three levels of proper table settings: CasualInformalFormalOf course those are just rules, and rules are meant to be broken. I poked around to find some designey-looking
Even if you build furniture for exacting rich people and have a white-glove service deliver and install it, chances are slim that the client will take an extra-precise engineer's level to it and use lasers to site it. But this group of specialists who are hired each year to provide
Etsy seller YourSassyGrandma seems pretty sassy indeed: Their store sells a line of "Ugly Christmas sweaters and more," where the "more" pertains to holiday costumes that integrate parts of human anatomy. I have to say it doesn't work as well for the guys, although the reindeer at least gets some

With plastic and other toxic materials polluting our oceans and infiltrating our air supply, it's more important now than ever for designers and scientists to develop scalable solutions to help reverse the bad habits we've
There's a lot of unassuming buildings on Crosby Street in SoHo, but I know this one in particular because a certain famous rock star lived there, and a training brother of mine works in carpentry and got hired for a job there, and one of his crew members accidentally fucked
Good news: Jonathan Ive, who was famously promoted to Chief Design Officer of Apple two years ago, is officially overseeing the design teams again. As CDO Ive's attention was spread onto the design of Apple's "spaceship" campus, with Alan Dye and Richard Howarth taking over the hardware and software design
I had a transparent reusable water bottle I used to bring to my training hall, but I stopped using it because these gross black dots were forming on the inside near the bottom and they were difficult to scrub out, even with a bristle brush. The developers of the
Each year about 200 families in America will experience Christmas tree fires, proving to their children that Santa Claus does not love them. According to the National Fire Protection Association, the culprits are usually faulty or overloaded lighting and/or placing the tree too close to a heat source. But
Most designers have an X-Acto knife either well within reach, or in a drawer nearby. London-based design firm 3Coil uses scalpels instead, finding the blades tough, handy and "incredibly useful around the studio," so decided to design their own version. They came up with the Crane Knife, an elegant and
