These Animal Rings Come Alive When 3 Pieces Are Put Together


These beautiful rings will drive your fingers wild! Made by Bangkok artist “m e r r y m e,” these enamel three-piece accessories can fit together to form an animal doing something cute, or can be worn separately. For example, when worn on three fingers, one set of rings appear to be a squirrel after an acorn.

Rings have been given and received for about 6000 years. The finger on which a ring is worn often has some significance. In many Western cultures an engagement ring is worn on the a hand’s fourth digit, and is then transferred to the other hand after marriage.

Two Legged Chair Creates “Barable Discomfort”


“Inactivity seems to be the disease of today,” observes Parisian designer Benoit Malta. So he credits the inspiration for Inactivité, a collection of furniture that aims to alter the sedentary nature of modern life.

“Our ways of living have evolved, and our bodies are less and less active. Our living spaces are conceived with the idea of comfort. My aim was to introduce a ‘bearable discomfort’ for our wellbeing – discomfort used to put the body in motion and thus out of its chronic stationary postures.”

Incredible Alarm Clock Manipulates Magnetic Fluids to Tell the Time


Zelf Koelman of the Eindhoven University of Technology has designed an alarm clock that resembles a Rorschach test in motion. The clock—which is known as the Ferrolic—relies on the manipulation of magnetic fluids to display the time.

“A few years ago I fell in love with the magical characteristics of a little black ‘blob’ in a bottle,” Koelman explains.

“One could manipulate the position and shape of a floating drop of Ferro Fluid with a magnet. The dynamics and shape of this liquid body was much like a living entity. I decided to allow this entity to live its own life and have a function. A year of research and engineering eventually resulted in Ferrolic.”

Not only is Ferrolic able to tell time, it’s also customizable. Users can display text, shapes, and transitions by operating a web app that transmits information to the clock. This transforms the device into a tabletop piece of art that one can display around the house.

Only 24 of these fascinating clocks have been made thus far, but the Ferrolic team has hinted that the appliance may become more accessible in the future.

3D-Printed Chess Set Turns Each Piece into a Miniature Planter


The MicroPlanter Chess Set reimagines the classic board game by cleverly combining it with nature. Its creators, XYZ Workshop, were inspired by Bauhaus-style chess pieces and designed them as miniature planters that can each hold a different herb or succulent. This gives every piece its own unique look, as the monochromatic, hard-edged shapes are now offset by soft, green leaves.

This imaginative chess set is completely customizable. The pieces are 3D printed, and XYZ Workshop has made the patterns available for download, allowing you to produce them in a variety of colors and materials. .

In addition, they’ve included a printable and portable chess board skin, which means any flat surface can be a place for game play. Keep it as a fun outdoor activity, or bring the game inside to add some green to your living room

Shovel Lamp


The Open Air Museum – the preserver and keeper of the Estonian village culture and country architecture – had a plan to illuminate all the roads and tracks.

They were searching unique post light, which would harmonize with the building complexes on the territory, and would blend in the general atmosphere of the museum and make the tracks and roads between the exhibits as an organic whole. The inspiration came while watching the handles of the shovels. As a result unique conception of the outdoor light was worked out.

This light does not only have it`s primary function, but it also tells a certain story. When seeing the shovels at the hardware store the vision about the tool pushed in the ground appeared.

This way the light also symbolizes the unfinished work and the on-going work. This kind of conceptual basis for the outdoor light used in the territory of the national instution researching and preserving the national heritage seemed very attractive.

At the same time the shape of the light also indicates the tools which were used during the farmworks.

Strong construction
Completely weatherproof
Possibility to direct the light dynamically
Distictive and vivid loop

material: Galvanized and powdercoated metal, LED
dimensions: 1000x300x150 mm

Designer: Margus Triibmann


Tannus Tires


Carrying a spare bicycle tire in case of a flat is not an option and repairing it, is annoying and time consuming. Thankfully, Tannus Tires fixes these issues by being puncture resistant tires. Instead of having an inflatable tube inside, these tires use foaming technology composed of a micro closed cell polymer resin (Aither) that makes them 100% solid inside.

It is able to withstand broken glass, nails, sharp metal debris, and thorns while making your ride smooth by minimizing rolling resistance.
