Hong-Kong-based Design firm Lofree came out of nowhere last year, quickly racking up three six-figure crowdfunding successes: $744,199 for their Dot Keyboard, $183,618 for their Four Seasons Keyboard and $185,499 for their Poison Speaker. In this age of hard-looking glass rectangles, the company's tactile, geometric, soft-radii-sporting retro-styled objects seem to
With their Mobile Power Pack, Honda's got a brilliant plan to make renewable, zero-emissions energy super-convenient. To see if their plan will work, the company is beginning trials this year in heavily-populated, heavily-polluted Indonesia, the world's third largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Indonesia is the world's third largest market for
Throughout his professional career, seasoned industrial designer Michael DiTullo has put an emphasis on designing everything instead of pigeon-holing himself into a single category. This mentality has not only led him to work for companies like Nike, Frog and Sound United, but it has also exposed him to exciting side projects, like designing custom cars with ICON Motors.

To limber up my lateral thinking "lobes," I draw faint horizontal lines in pencil on a sheet of white paper and think up several dissimilar shapes. Working left to right, I draw combinations in ink
I'm a big fan of Klein Tools for their clever Katapult Wire Stripper, and I'm happy to see the company has applied their design talents to tool bags as well. Their Tradesman Pro Tool Master Backpack has a host of great features that show the designers have studied how tools
While Core77's bosses typically spend their evenings wearing tuxedos, us lowly folk in editorial have the luxury of wearing whatever we want. Which is a good thing; when acquaintances of mine inconsiderately die or get married, forcing me to attend their funerals or weddings, I've found transporting a suit in
Take a trip to virtually any region of Japan and you'll see plenty of mamachari; translated as "mom's bike," mamachari are no-frills utility bicycles with a handy basket used as grocery getters, kiddie haulers and commuter vehicles. The Cero One is a cargo bike that takes its inspiration from the

Designing something as complicated as a car can take years. Even though CAD and rendering technology have improved tremendously over the past two decades, there is one major time sink in the automotive design process that there's been no way to get around: The "review" step that occurs throughout the
This morning, the Reebok Future team launched the NPC UK Cotton sneakers, the first product from their "Cotton + Corn" sustainable products initiative, which was announced last year.

To us, nothing can beat the elegant complexity of cabinetmaker David Roentgen's ingenious pieces from the 18th Century. But that doesn't stop people from trying. Here, San-Diego-based furnituremaker Craig Thibodeau tries to out-Roentgen Roentgen, with this incredibly complex Wisteria Puzzle Cabinet, created in collaboration with puzzle designer Robert Yarger:
Say goodbye to putting baking soda and air freshness in your smelly sneakers because Panasonic recently announced, "There's a machine for that." The Japanese electronics company's new MS-DS100 is a shoe deodorizer device that works overnight for up to 7 hours to freshen those smelly, nasty, gross, dank sneakers you've

A Wellington, New-Zealand-based hunter named Matt Bircham captured the astonishing footage you see below. Upon encountering a sheep farm in Marlborough, Bircham sent his drone up to a distance of 180 meters to capture the sheep dogs doing their herding work, then sped the footage up: "They were moving 3500
This vaguely insectoid plastic contraption from Japan was created to wash dishes, bowls and even utensils. No, it's not a gag. It's real and can be purchased for just 8,800 yen! (That's about eighty bucks.) Of course, there's no telling as to whether it actually works on dirty dishes.
The James Brand is a Portland, Oregon-based group of designers who create modern, minimalist knives and tools. They also make this dual-compartment carabiner called the Mehlville that caught my eye. It's machined from a single piece of aluminum and uses stainless steel for the hardware. Look at the amount of
Yeti, manufacturer of high-end coolers, has applied their fastidious design skills to outdoor furniture. "With a reputation to uphold for durability," the company writes, "we looked to wilderness-tested gear – from climbing harness fabric to downhill mountain bike frames – to create a nearly-indestructible, incredibly comfortable place to park yourself."

In Part 2 of our Belkin visit, we interviewed VP of Design Oliver Seil on the developmental story of their TrueClear Pro, which seamlessly applies screen protectors to smartphones. Arriving at the final iterations of the product took a lot of prototyping! Here's how they went from crazy idea to
After dropping and shattering my expensive iPhone several years ago, I replaced it and took steps to prevent it from happening again. I kept the phone inside an absurdly bulky, tank-like protective case by Pelican, completely obscuring the beauty that Apple's designers had slaved to produce. This case was
A lot of us industrial designers have worked freelance or for smaller consultancies, where we have to send our designs out to subcontractors and wait for prototypes and parts to come back. The larger design consultancies, or companies like Apple and Belkin, have everything on-site and don't have to
Whether it's due to lack of space, money, time or skill, playing an instrument can be pretty elitist. In fact, on average only one in ten people picked up an instrument last year. Everybody listens to music, but not everybody feels like they can really enjoy making music. We want
The tale of launching a creative studio is age-old, and yet, somehow the ins and outs of that journey are still cloaked in mystery, and the helpful, frank tips young designers hunger for are often out of reach. It's easy to view this lack of knowledge as a serious disadvantage,

Mowing lawns is a straightforward process, until you get to a tree or a fencepost.

The paradox with workwear: It has to be cheap, so that the working man can afford it. But it has to be durable, because the working man does actual work. And durable materials are pricey. Carhartt does a decent job of balancing the two: I've found their 12-oz. duck pants

The pointed tip of a pocketknife is great for poking, probing, prying and slicing. But if you're using the knife for other things, like chopping or carving, the point can be a nuisance at best and a liability at worst. Hence Gerber has designed the FlatIron, a folding knife with
