As we recently learned, much of our planet's supply of drinking water is infested with plastic microfibers. Single-use plastic items like shopping bags and drinking straws are some of the culprits. To combat the impact of discarded plastic bags on the environment, an Indonesian company called Avani has created
A fellow named Gualberto Elizondo recently attended the Grill Master Campeonato Nacional de Parrilladas (Grill Master National Barbecue Championship) in Monterrey, Mexico, spotted one entrant's crazy contraption and posted it to his Instagram: It's a pity that we're coming across this only now, when barbecuing season is about to end.
David Rockwell is one of America's most acclaimed interior designers. His firm, Rockwell Group, has designed large-scale immersive environments for hotels and restaurants around the world, not to mention its sets for the Academy Awards and several Broadway musicals.

Ford and Domino's have collaborated on the Self-Driving Delivery Vehicle, an autonomous hybrid Fusion that will deliver pizzas to customers in a trial in Ann Arbor in the next few weeks. What's different about this, compared to other autonomous vehicle trials, is that the tests are meant to see how
Earlier today, HAY design launched their exclusive Kitchen Market at the MoMA Design Store SoHo. We were overwhelmed and excited by the 250—yes, 250—piece collection designed by Mette Hay with items selected by Danish chef and restaurateur, Frederik Bille Brahe. The collection merges classic kitchen necessities with modern design, throwing

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.
What is this world coming to? First we saw the Fridge Locker, a lockable plastic cage one must use to protect their food inside communal refrigerators. Now we see this insane Ben-&-Jerry's-branded combination lock for ice cream pints: I thought (or hoped) it was a gag, but the thing is

You can deliver on that slightly menacing magic with this new shapeshifting pasta invented by MIT's Tangible Media Group. Beyond whimsy, lead researcher Lining Yao, and supporting researcher Wen Wang, note that
Wine cellars are classy and a convenient way to store bulk wine out of sight. In contrast, if you have 16 bottles of wine stashed all over your kitchen, you look like a raging alcoholic. If you've got a taste for the vino and can't afford to have a wine
Matcha is more than a good ice cream flavor, it's an ancient tea preparation that relies on several deftly created tools. Aside from the tea itself (a cult subject I'll leave to real gourmands) the most crucial element is the chasen, or bamboo whisk, used to froth the matcha powder
Coffee gear can take over a counter quickly. Is integrated storage a reasonable solution? In a world where pour over coffee takes several discreet tools and a cubic Nescafe unit the size of a microwave is an acceptable appliance, Sam Cho's Coffee Cube suggests a return to the blocky but

I know it's a joke and I don't care. The McDonald's "Frork" promotion can go frork itself and take the entirety of global mega meta "humor" and internet-baiting product design with it. The Frork, for those underprivileged consumers without ready access to a particularly jokey Micky D's franchise, is a

When the Imbue tea mug first got posted to Coroflot, I was a bit put off by the heavy proportions of the wooden lid and made some snap judgments about the overall value of the design. (Nothing personal, the Whole Foods/greenwashed vibe has its place.) However, while really savoring a

The Nuni Tortilla Toaster is a solution to the very real, very dire problem of how to heat tortillas. Have you ever tried to make soft tacos for more than one person? It sucks. The traditional methods that I'm personally accustomed to are functional but not without real issue. Method

We can thank grain for the development of civilization, and you can buy Hostess bread around the planet, so it's fair to say grain grinding is a pretty well explored field. But like all things "traditional" or "whole grain," that doesn't disqualify a tasteful redesign. Designer Meng Jie Chen
Today, more than ever, design is vital for sustainability objectives. Working with Coca-Cola we created a best-in-class, global super-lightweight water bottle. With 30% reduced plastic and 100% recyclable, the bottle requires less energy to make and transport than previous bottle designs. Combined with an innovative “arrow” design, the bottle encourages consumers to twist and compact the bottle; reducing environmental impact.
