Oxygem is a smart ring that aims to provide people with Sickle Cell Disease a better lifestyle and reduce the amount of deaths caused by this disease each year. On average, statistics show that in every 1,000,000 people, 1 in 6 people is a carrier of Sickle Cell Disease, and
Bosko Kante is a grammy-winning artist, producer and most recently, innovator. He and his wife Maya Kante co-founded Electrospit and co-created the ESX-1, a tubeless talkbox designed to liberate an artistic expression with mobility, style, freedom and innovation. The traditional talkbox is to thank for the famous hook that
As a former basketball player, I can attest to the discomfort that comes along with running up and down the court in sneakers that fit you when you purchased them in store but seemingly change size and shape every time you pivot. As a result of this natural foot expansion
Here's an object all of us use, but few of us ever talk about: A toilet paper holder. Industrial designer Eric Strebel designed a magnet-based dispenser that can be used, one-handed, to remove one, two or three sheets at a time. For viewer edification, he's captured the product development
Last year a collaboration between Tom Dixon and Ikea yielded the Delaktig, a sort of open-source furniture system built around a day bed/couch/seating platform. Now they've expanded the line to include a proper bed, Queen-sized, which features the same aluminum construction and snap-on, snap-off system of accessories (in this case
Angle grinders are meant to be used at, well, an angle. That pesky lock nut that holds the blade on prevents you from grinding with the wheel flat against the workpiece, should your application require it. More importantly, the lock nut is time-consuming to remove/re-attach and requires you keep the
NiCE Ltd. is seeking motivated industrial designer to join our family. We are an internationally renowned branding and packaging design studio with a foundation built on design mastery and a passion for delivering creative solutions. The ideal candidate has to be best in class with
A distant fan spins softly enough to hear. A neat home vibrates with comfort. Warm tea is ready to sip, and over the velvet reading chair, offset slightly from a floor lamp, a maple-wood mui might rest on the wall. Operating inside this smart home control hub, Google Assistant
An example of good UX design is the concept behind shopping on Amazon. Meaning you should be able to look at a product's star rating, then read actual user reviews to confirm that the product is what you need. Unfortunately, humans screw this good design concept up. People leave one-star
Every classic car brand has their undesirable models, and for Porsche it's got to be the unloved 924 (or arguably, the similar 944). Intended as an entry-level Porsche--the gateway drug to get you into the brand--the 924 debuted in 1976 with Porsche's first automatic transmission and an aesthetically unfortunate beltline.
Good Thing founder and designer Jamie Wolfond just announced that Good Thing will be closing up their online shop to be exclusively sold at West Elm moving forward. Wolfond, who founded Good Thing in 2014, is ready to make space in his life to focus on his personal studio, Jamie
I love having an all-wheel-drive turbo stickshift, but due to a recent close call, I've completely changed the way I drive. To explain, the roads where I live are all twisty country two-lanes. There's never any traffic nor kids in the road. I rarely even see other cars. So
THE COMPANY Tuft & Needle (“T&N”) is the original disrupter in the mattress space. Founded in 2012 by Daehee Park and JT Marino, T&N has grown to one of the top players in the e-commerce bedding space. While most competitors raised significant amounts of investor funding and are loss-making,
As current tech stands, this is probably the closest we can get to an actual time machine. EmuVR is a retro emulation that lets you pop on the goggles to play an Atari 2600, a Commodore 64, an NES, a Sega Genesis and other consoles of yore--inside of an '80s/'90s
The press has been abuzz for a while with news of Harley-Davidson's forthcoming Livewire, the company's first foray into electric motorcycles. But what no one saw coming was the other two concepts they unveiled this week: An as-yet-unnamed electric bike… …and this electric scooter-looking thingy: ENGINEERED FOR THE CITY These
Here's a sobering fact pointed out by a team of students in Canada: Every piece of plastic that has ever been manufactured is still somewhere on Earth. (Actually that's not entirely true; we've probably managed to launch some of it into space on now-derelict satellites.) Rather than biodegrading, plastic
I prefer sketching on paper, but one undeniable benefit to sketching on a tablet is that you don't have to worry about the light source. Back when I worked in a design office, the position of my desk lamp was a constant, if minor, irritation. I had a swing-arm with
Turns out that polar bear paws naturally have an excellent non-slip grip.Most of us know that nature has already come up with an endless supply of brilliant design solutions, just waiting to be integrated into your designs. The problem is that you have to be exposed to nature in the
Cash-strapped creatives who already have a Bachelors: Wouldn't it be fantastic to pursue a graduate design education without having to stress out about the tuition? Well, good news, as today the Cranbrook Academy of Art announced they've launched a new fellowship program with full tuition coverage. Their Director's Fellowship Program
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.
I think it is fair to say that most furniture is made of solid wood or sheet goods - the latter being plywood, melamine, or MDF, depending on budget and design considerations. As discussed in the last blog, cutting sheets goods accurately and with a clean, ready-to-glue edge isn't trivial,
Physical therapy can be a dull and repetitive process. Playing videogames, on the other hand, requires repetitive manipulations of the controller, but is mentally engaging. Technology company Neofect is exploiting the latter phenomenon to improve the UX of PT, specifically for stroke victims, with their Rapael Smart Glove. What they
With their educator's workload, it would be easy for any industrial design professor to stop designing themselves, occupied as they are with evaluating student work. Not so for TJ Kim, an associate professor of Industrial Design at Purdue University, who has managed to squeeze in the time to design a
At first glance, this backpack from Japanese bag brand CWF doesn't look like much: Then you see this photo, where the bag is actually in use on the left, compared to a regular backpack on the right: Yes, that there is a one-meter-tall backpack with a 180-liter capacity. The Backpacker's
Are you tired of the corporate grind or of working in dull product categories? Do you want to work on exciting projects with a great team, in a great location? Lifestyledesign is growing and we are looking for a very talented and passionate designer to join our team.
Yesterday afternoon amongst the unfinished halls of CES, technology company MSI gathered journalists and gamers to announce that they have officially partnered with Discovery Channel to create the PS63 Modern laptop. MSI is known first and foremost for their slim and powerful gaming laptops, but through their PS63 Modern, the
Last year we saw an amazing bicycle that had been hacked so that it could change height on-the-fly. Like this: I could not deduce how it worked, but Rachel over at Rako Bikes figured it out--and even made an Instructable showing you how to build your own. You'll need a
Back when I was driving an ambulance, we got a call that a big rig had crashed on a nearby highway. Arriving on site, we saw tire marks going off of the road, then disappearing over an embankment. The driver had driven off the edge and tipped the vehicle over;
Another year, another surge of designs being pushed out into the world: some great, some good, and some, well, not worth mentioning... But what separates the good from the best? That's something the 2019 Core77 Design Awards are here to distinguish and recognize. Core77 is excited to announce the 2019
One of my gripes with designers of multiple fields--architecture, interior design, industrial design--is that they'll often design things with no thought to basic maintenance. By which I mean cleaning. Here's a second-story window in my house. It is festooned with cobwebs, dirt and dust, and is impossible for me to
Ammunition is an international design group providing services in product design, brand strategy and identity, UX design, graphic design, and packaging. While Ammunition’s strengths are diverse across design disciplines, our real expertise is to redefine markets by using design to create new business territory, and to communicate and connect with
On the third day of 2019, the new direct to consumer furniture company Dims. sent out a family letter that may just be the greatest piece of literature I have ever read from a capital-seeking entity – in this letter, the luxury design retailer announced major price cuts from two
Something we're surprised that we don't see more of in the 3D printing space is printed sheets that can be folded into 3D objects. While bed size limitation is certainly a factor, Australia-based industrial designer Mart Cherednik's Stealth Bag, which is printed in one piece and has embedded hinges and
