A kitchen whisk is a great tool for mixing everything from pancake batter to plaster, but depending on how viscous your mixture is, cleaning the gunk off the insides of the wires can be a real pain. What I hate is when the apexes of two wires intersect, creating a capillary-action nightmare that makes it impossible to remove material.
Red Dot Award winner Kwon Hansol's Divisible whisk, in the Domestic Aid category, solves this problem. The handle is made of two magnetic halves, each containing opposite ends of the wires, so after use you can straighten the entire thing out for easy cleaning.
Over in the Red Dot Award's Illumination category, designers Jin Min Hee, Park So Jeing, Jo Joo Hyun and Choi Sung Hun collaborated on the SAVE:US emergency drop-down light.
Taking a cue from the oxygen masks that deploy from the ceiling in airplane emergencies, SAVE:US consists of a canister light that serves as everyday overhead lighting, but drops down in a crisis. The removeable light then serves as a flashlight, and also has an embedded GPS unit so evacuees can be tracked and located.
