Can Steel Fold? Apparently Yes!

opening_003

Living in one of the most crowded cities in the world, these two London based guys had enough! They had no more room left in their kitchen, and they had to do something about it… They’ve decided to fight for our right to more living space.

Is there a better starting point than the humble household strainer(Colander)?

Literally a pot with holes, the common strainer is limited in its uses, and a clear space violator that needs discipline! Ran Merkazy, an ex-Dyson industrial designer went to work, to improve the simple utensil.

What he came up with is nothing less than remarkable – A premium looking, Stainless steel, Patent pending design that folds flat at a flick of the wrist.

Before it was ready for market, the new design had to overcome serious functional issues. For example – How do we make sure nothing falls through the leaves? How does the design make it easy to clean? How do you make it stand?

But fear not! after testing close to 60 prototypes and using a special process to accurately etch 100’s of iterations for the steel leaves – the product was perfected to fit its functionality impeccably. The metal leaves now glide elegantly past each other to make a tight container that let’s nothing fall through unintentionally. The slick design allows easy cleaning by hand or dishwasher, while an ingeniously simple cut away at the bottom ensures the product sits solid while you pour the hot contents into it.

The stainless steel design is highly robust and great for camping, but at the same time – visually stunning! This item fits very nicely on the utensil rack in your modern kitchen, in the cutlery drawer for easy access or in the dishwasher, taking minimal space so you can load more plates instead.

In addition to its looks and space saving qualities, the new geometry and materials also allow the RMDLO(Armadillo) Colander to bend elegantly, ensuring there is no risk of spilling its contents.

The pair managed to launch a kickstarter campaign which went viral and in 30 days raised close to $100,000! To everybody’s surprise, the new ‘look like a helmet’ utensil, gained popularity with some high profile figures who decided to endorse it.

The cool new space saving brand and unique design has created both a buzz and a following through its campaign and eventual birth.

ハリモグラの侵入

会いたかった Yes? なハリモグラ image credit:facebook

 個性的な生態系によるものか、巨大だったり猛毒だったり珍しかったりと、さまざまな生物が目撃されるオーストラリアで、ちょっと変わった動物による驚きの行動がネットを巡っている。

 今月初め、オーストラリアのあるご家庭にまさかの動物が侵入した。その動物とはなんと小さなハリモグラ。

 哺乳類でありながら卵生というユニークな生態で知られ、トゲだらけの背中とツンととがった鼻先を持つハリモグラが、お世話になってる女性宅の窓を自力でこじ開け、「ごめん、会いたくなって…きちゃった!」とばかりに乗り込んだのだ。

 誰に教えられるでもなく侵入経路を発見。2度にわたって犯行を試みた末に動かぬ証拠をつかまれてしまったハリモグラがとんでもなくかわいいのでちょっと見てほしい。 続きを読む

Working From Home Has Never Been Easier With This Office-Tent

Work from home sounds like a dream for most, but, like many work-related things, it’s not easy. Sure, getting work done in bed and not having colleagues breathe over your shoulder is a convenience that cannot be understated, but it’s things like having unlimited snacking time and getting easily distracted way too many times that become serious issues. Oh, and an unavoidable need for a more...
