In 2015 we celebrated the 20 year anniversary of Core77 with a relaunch of the site and the debut of our Projects page, our first editorial platform powered by you! Over the course of this year we've received an impressive array of projects from students, independent designers, consultancies and everything in-between. Thank you for making the Projects a huge success in its debut year and one of our most impressive collections of design work direct from the field.
From design solutions for small spaces to products that mediate between man and machine, Projects has become a reliable weathervane, showing which way the design winds are blowing. Below, we round of 12 of our favorite Projects submitted this year. Each represents the concern, vision and most importantly, solutions from our global audience of practitioners. Take a look, be inspired and submit your Project for consideration today!
HUB is a single kitchen tool to replace all your kitchen appliances, Solola examines the value of a category of consumer products and offers a multi-functional solution that also encourages consumers to fix instead of buying replacements, prolonging the lifecycle of the product.
A one-size-fits-all solution for pot lid madness! With adjustable vent holes, for both steaming and straining, a heat resistant silicone surface and a patented convex underside, the ONELID resolves a number of kitchen frustrations with the simplicity of its design.
This camping canteen converts from water bottle into beer chalice with a simple adjustment of the lid. The double steel walls keep your cold beverages cold and your hot beverages hot while saving your fingers from extreme temperatures.
Another great design for the great outdoors, the CompRest is a vacuum-packed foam camping bed. The pump also acts as a portable power bank that can do double duty by charging a phone or other USB device.
Using recyclable materials, Herrera created a suite of multi-functional furniture designed for small spaces. Each piece—a storage ottoman/side table, floating shelves, dining table/desk, and bench—are made from a combination of maple wood, marino wool felt and aluminum.
The dream of the self-driving car is here. But our welcome for what's been touted as mobility for the future has been lukewarm at best. Ros has created a tactile interface for the autonomous car to give passengers a sense of control, freedom and expression while driving. The aim of Stewart is to create a "haptic discussion" about what the car's next move will be.
A bed frame designed for city dwellers, the Floyd Bed adapts to your growing, not to mention moving, needs. It's easy to expand from one mattress size to the next and the whole system packs up easily for the life on the go.
