A student team from TU Delft in the Netherlands has designed and produced a fully functional 3D printed stainless steel bicycle. The students designed the frame of the bicycle to demonstrate the potential of a new method for 3D printing metal. The students achieved the goal of their
Year after year, children living in the south american Andes die due to extreme weather conditions. Most people think that lack of insulation is the main cause, but sweater and scarf drives don't seem to be solving the issue—in fact, malnourishment seems to be the answer to the question. In
Designers Tower followed its nomadic principles again and moved to a new location with their exhibition, this year at the showroom of the Cologne Chamber of Crafts. Fresh graduates, young designer-makers and small studios present products with a focus on wood work. Stromer extension cordStromer by Njustudio is a four-legged
Sustainer is a reminder-based mobile app paired with a re-usable food container aimed to help reduce waste caused by disposable to-go food containers.

Who'd have thought that the once strange and marginalized form of design practice–discursive design–would be promoted and even employed by national governments? What a difference a few decades can make.
Ferrari describes their Top Design School Challenge as "a competition in which the world's most prestigious design institutes vie for supremacy." This here is their third installment, where students from some 50 design schools entered; as the judging rounds advanced, 46 schools were knocked off of the list. That left
If you're studying, say, fashion design, it makes sense to go to New York, Paris or London, where there are plenty of places to apply for internships. Of course, you'll find you're a dime a dozen, as thousands of other students have the same idea. But imagine studying design
"The concept was born out of necessity" is what both Lore and Stefan tell me independently when asked about how their projects came about. Not surprisingly, necessity is often a great basis for good design. Tucked away in the basement of the AIT Architektursalon in Ehrenfeld, the two students
A few thousand people get struck by lightning every year. About 96% of those killed and injured are people out in the open. The majority of victims are people participating in outdoor activities such as hiking and camping. Many accidents in the mountains can be ascribed to the panic brought

Nicholas Baker is a talented industrial design student at the Savannah College of Art and Design. A little over a year ago, Baker designed this Prism Nightlight: The goal of this project was to explore a personal light device and create an innovative product taking inspiration from a notable designer.
A handmade wooden chair not only demonstrates the beauty of the wood, but through stylistic choices also reveals the cultural influences and elements behind it. "Painful" doesn't mean that you feel painful when sitting in this chair. Instead, "Painful" refers to the material language of this traditional "Ming" chair—the inspiration
WATER PASS provides a simple yet clever solution to an age old problem— it is a filter for your sink that allows water to drain quickly even with food waste in the center well.
There's only 3 more weeks to apply to be a part of the Class of 2018 at SVA's MFA in Products of Design. Chaired by Core77's Allan Chochinov, the program is a pan-discipline design program concentrating on the sweet spot between design thinking and design making. Here's a bit more:
As the idea of autonomous cars becomes more widely accepted, there's a challenge that tomorrow's automotive designers will need to tackle: how to design desirability into the autonomous car? Industry consensus is that the move to autonomous cars is a gradual but inevitable process. We already expect increasingly more
We know what you're thinking: "Oh, another video that starts off with gentle folk music and dolly shots of wood shavings." But no, this one's different. First off, the guy in this one's got a British accent, so there. Secondly, from some angles he kind of looks like a cross
I've long maintained that there's a piece of furniture all of us could use, but which has yet to be designed. In our bedrooms we all have beds, dressers, a closet to hang clothes in. But where do you put clothes that you've worn once, but that are not quite
In the modern age, we often keep our eyes on screens instead of on our surroundings; our hands are now busy pushing buttons instead of making crafts. How would it be if we turned back to the mindset of primitive peoples, who scavenged and created in accordance with elements of
School of Visual Arts (SVA) Products of Design MFA graduate Berk Ilhan's thesis, Uplift, addresses the quality of life of cancer patients—identifying opportunities that cultivate joy and happiness, and strengthening the support group around the patient. Berk investigated how design could touch people at an emotional level, especially in situations
With the amount of waste produced in the US, the goal of this project was to design a product platform that demonstrates product longevity by empowering consumers to take an active role in prolonging the life of their products. Through research I found that people aren't willing to service or
One of our favorite things about working at Core77 is trying to provide you with real-world design inspiration. It's always our dream that you'll catch a spark here that leads to your own brilliant Kickstarter campaign, or that you'll spot some clever solution that you can integrate into your design
This week's Projects section will feature works coming from Art Center's brand new Interaction Design Department. The students featured are part of the department's very first graduating class. Each project explores through interactive tech solutions how people think, feel and behave when they encounter a product, place or ecosystem.
The world is already filled with smart people designing and building smart, web-connected objects. But most of these things are siloed off into their own apps, meant to be operated independently of one another. But now a research team at MIT Media Lab led by Valentin Huen, a PhD candidate
Ask any designer if they’ve heard of critical design, design fiction, speculative design, or discursive design and you’ll almost certainly get a “yes”. Ask if they can differentiate between them, and you might as well be asking them distinguish fiscal strategies among the republican presidential candidates.
