The Phonofone II is a ceramic audio sculpture modeled after a gramophone horn. Using the two earbud “ports”, the Phonofone amplifies your music through resonance and horn acoustics without the need for any external power.

EcoSystems creates sustainable furniture using recycleable materials: Bamboo plywood, 100% aluminum hardware and fasteners, talalay latex, and Designtex biodegradable fabric. Also, it gets bonus points for snapping together without tools, and ships in flat in one solid piece of plywood.

Vertical Garden is a sculptural, almost architectural form, allowing leaf and flower to inhabit spaces, to create spaces, with a natural raw beauty.
Hmmm I think I like.

Peter Marigold has created the most organic yet usable shelves ever. And most importantly, expandable. Thumbs up.

Now this is a crazy object. But a lot of fun! This object was created especially for me – for my deviant behavior. In order for this object to work someone needs to throw empty bottles against a cement backing. Breaking bottles can release a lot tension.
There are really two parts to this object: the Sharldery and the Shardalier. The Shardlery is like a factory. You throw in a bottle and glass shards are produced. The Shardalier catches the broken glass becoming a lamp the light of which shines through the glass shards. I’ve actually witnessed people hugging this product at parties. It’s a big “hit”.
Definitely a refreshing take on interactive furniture, and very very creative. I want one.

Oh my gard please put this in production. I haaate looking for a place to lean an umbrella or trying to find a place to hook it on yourself when you need two hands. Well actually I don’t really like umbrellas in the first place. . . especially in the city. But this is a good first step to improving one of the most basic products that everyone has.

Swedish designer Jantze Brogård Asshoff (also behind the new Ikea chintz) has dreamt up Greenhouse,
a trash bin the shape of a house crafted as an attractive solution to
storing household waste. With the porch functioning as the pedal
opening the roof lid, it’s a clever marriage of forms that lends a
touch of unfussy whimsy to the kitchen.

Looks kinda steampunky.
This graceful modular storage system can be configured in endless combinations. Each beveled unit has the versatility to be combined with others and the integrity to stand alone.
Totally modular dude.
