The iconic designer Luigi Colani dies at 91

Design legend Luigi Colani has passed away at the age of 91. Colani’s designs were an absolute deviation from the ordinary, with a minimal use of straight lines, and form that took heavy influence from organic curves, muscles, and biodynamics. The German industrial designer prided himself in having incredible versatility, working on everything from ballpoint pens to kitchens, and from grand pianos to grand automobiles. Colani’s career spanned over 50 years, having worked with companies such as Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Volkswagen, and BMW. Colani passed away at the age of 91. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

The GPCA Carabiner is a badass EDC multitool that could literally save your life

Want to suspend your backpack from a fence, or your keys from the belt loop of your pants? The GPCA Carabiner can handle it. Want to cut boxes? GPCA has it sorted. Want to tighten a screw or remove nails from wood, you’re taken care of with the GPCA. Want to bust open a few bottles of beer, the GPCA is your friend. Want to literally fight off an attacker? The GPCA’s there to protect you! With so many uses that you’ll run out of fingers to count them on, the GPCA Carabiner is a multitool designed to get you through any sort of situation. Fine-tuned to be the multitool to end all multitools, the handy carabiner comes with a set of essential instruments integrated into its design, for every brand of emergency imaginable… and that isn’t hyperbole.

The GPCA’s titanium construction (there are stainless steel and aluminum variants too) literally makes it one of the toughest EDCs to fit on your belt… so much so that you can literally use the GPCA as a pair of brass knuckles to fight off any threat outdoors. The carabiner itself is sturdy enough to carry up to a few hundred pounds more than any EDC carabiners *Not rated for climbing, yet compact enough to work as a keychain. Integrated into its outer frame are a Philips head and a flathead screwdriver, as well as a box-cutter that can also be used to whittle wood, pierce packets of food, or cut cords; while the frame itself is optimized for function too, with a bottle opener and a prybar built right into its bottom.

The carabiner’s clip comes with a spring-loaded gate and a knurled ring that locks the clip in its place (for added functionality, the clip/gate has a lock symbol etched onto it that’s visible only when the knurled ring is securely screwed to the carabiner). Screw the ring upwards and the gate also has a secret hidden compartment for a flintstone too, giving you complete command and control over your outdoor activities. Brought to you by the team that designed the 1945 bolt-action tactical pen, the GPCA carabiner shares a similar outlook of being a feature-rich product that you’d want to carry everywhere you go, partially because of its universal functionality, and partially because it’s such a badass little EDC tool you’re going to love having your own.

There is now no excuse for an untidy desk!

Whist handheld vacuum cleaners may be compact in size compared to their full-sized counterparts, they are still far from being portable. This leads to them living a life exclusively within the home, which is odd when you think about how much time many of us spend away from our homes and instead sit at our desks! MUGG has been designed with the aim of keeping our desks dust-free, whilst remaining compact enough to fit comfortably within our bags.

It was only appropriate that a device that’s sole purpose is to keep our work environment clean, to carry an equally clean design; the white, matt finish beautifully emphasizes the gentle curves that make up its distinctive profile. To complement the hand-held device, a charging station has also been designed to complete this desirable proposal!

Designer: Dae Hun Kim

“Society has recently created a new market target called the “Deskterian,” and many dinning or desk electronics products are on the market for people who like to decorate their desks. But you spend the most of your day at your desk, easily exposed to the threat of each species of bacteria, germs, mites, and fine dust. It is also important to note the possibility of a safety accident on the desk due to the ‘tracking’ phenomenon, which increases the risk of fire due to dust generated during electronic operation,” Kim told Yanko Design.

“The ‘MUGG’ has a simple minimal vacuum cleaner structure and a brush that can be cleaned even in the event of power failure, protecting your health and safety.”

“The basic material of the product is ABS plastic, and the brush is elastomer. Use a C-type rechargeable battery, which can be used without the use of a brush as desired. If the brush is not fitted, it can be cleaned with higher suction power. The product consists of a small vacuum cleaner and a C-type charger. In case of a C-type charger, a smartphone wireless charging function is also possible when the vacuum cleaner is not used.”

Neon lights redesigned to meet your interior lighting needs

We typically find neon tubes used as signboards and in outdoor advertising, one of the rare occasions we are seeing them bent into shape as creative indoor lighting, is with the MÖN lamps. These energy-saving lamps use neon technology and offer endless possibilities in terms of creativity. For this series we see some manually-bent neon tubes teamed with special aluminum body, that create silhouettes that are alluring.

Available in three forms: standing, hanging, or wall-mounted, you can control the illumination thanks to the dimmer that is integrated. The fun part however, is the fact that you can get the lamps customized and bent into a size that suits you and of course the tube color.

The Scream case for your iPhone

Edvard Munch would have a fit if he ever saw his works getting diluted by an iPhone case. The Scream case adopts the persona of the famous painting done by the Norwegian artist, and is an expression of modern art. The agonized face that we see in the painting is the most iconic images of our times. It is perceived as a symbol of anxiety that a modern man goes through. Perhaps the recent events at Apple – Ive’s exit, tepid design of the iPhone 11 – can be seen in the same light; given our addiction to the brand.

Designer: 2-LA Design

“It is almost a tradition for Apple fan to make fun of new iPhone camera design since Apple introduce camera bump, and it hits peak today after Apple introduced iPhone 11’s triple cameras design, we think it will be both interesting and inspirational to share something that we created for iPhone X back then, to expressing how we can look at today’s smartphone design with eyes of art,” 2-LA DESIGN told Yanko Design.

The Scream is the popular name given to multiple versions of a composition by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910. The works show a figure with an agonized expression against a landscape with a tumultuous orange sky. Arthur Lubow has described The Scream as “an icon of modern art, a Mona Lisa for our time.

The slightly sculpted surface makes the case visually attractive also provides an anti-slippery grip in hand.

This illuminating map captures the feeling of looking out of an airplane at night

NiteLanding’s lamp looks like the view from your airplane as you’re flying over a city at night! Taking topographical data of cities and adding light to them, NiteLanding isn’t really a decorative map as much as it’s an interactive lighting device. In the day, it looks like a bird’s eye view of your favorite city, but as night falls, the NiteLanding lights up, just like the city does, mimicking streetlights and building lights as seen from above! It truly resembles looking down upon your city from the skies!

NiteLanding was born out of a passion for travel, and a need to capture the beauty of a city, not just during the day but also at night. NiteLanding comes to life in the dark, as small pores and dots light up on its surface to resemble the city’s lights. Each city’s map is crafted to perfection, sometimes with details that are as much as half a millimeter thin. The maps use highly accurate and open-source data from OpenStreetMap, capturing the finest and smallest of details to create a relief map that’s as accurate as it gets. Right behind the map sits a piece of acrylic glass with thousands of dots etched into it. LEDs around the edges of the map help illuminate these etched dots, making them look like thousands upon thousands of street lamps and building lights. The lights even come with a dimmer switch to control the brightness and intensity of your city’s sparkle!

Each NiteLanding comes with a frame that allows you to hang it on a wall, and a cover that lets you use it as an interactive installation, placing miniature objects and figurines on it to bring out the map’s interactive element. You could put that Eiffel Tower keychain to much better use, resting it right across the Trocadero on your miniature map of Paris, or add souvenirs from your travel on top of the map to give it a more personalized, more interactive touch. The NiteLanding lamps come in two sizes, and can even be customized to carve a special message or your holiday hashtag into its bottom right corner, near the city’s name. Who knew maps could look this mesmerizing at night too!?

NiteLanding Lamp Story

“We all love to travel and our goal is to run out of pages in our passports. Our story began from one night flight, when we were approaching our destination’s airport for landing. We was captivated by the mesmerizing views of the city skyline with golden lights peppering the city. The warm, ambient glow emanated from buildings, roads, and streetlights, all forming the modern-day city we know so well. That’s how the NiteLanding Lamp came to be. We created this lamp so that we could pause time and stay in that moment forever,” Reawsanguanwong told Yanko Design.

Below: The Art of City Day Street in 3 Dimensional

A close up look of Satin-White city street details, created the look of white canvas painting in 3D ART.

Each artwork of the city map is crafted with precise clean cut and contours with micro details (some lines as thin as 0.6 mm). We remain all the actual map accuracy (OpenStreetMap data), and restyle the streets, roads and rivers in the form of 3D ART. Our Satin-White finishing of the city street layer resemble a minimal purity of white canvas painting. Each city map is accompanied by the city’s name with its respective time zone (UTC).

Below: Glowing Sreet Night Light

They created the “Glowing Street Light Effect” (patent pending) to simulate the city night view. By implementing lighting depth illusion on the transparent plexiglass layer (underneath the city street map) to replicate more than a thousand illuminated lighting effect of buildings and street lights.

The basic theory is when the light travels into the edge of a clear polymer or glass, the light will bounce around inside until it finds a way out at the far edges with the effect of no light being lost (similar to the basis of fiber optics). But an interesting twist happens when the surface between the edges is disrupted. By etching and carving pattern on each surface of the material one by one, we control where the light escapes and create the effect of more than thousand street lamps.

More than thousand lighting effect underneath city street layer.

Low Heat Lighting: Safe to touch

LEDs are cool to touch because they generally don’t produce heat in the form of IR. We designed the “Glowing Street Light Effect” by having the LEDs conceal along the side of the frame, a similar technique to the edge-light system for light guide panel (ELS-LGP).

With the city street layer placed on top, the heat is placed further from light source making the lamp surface low in heat and safe to touch even for playing.

Touch & hold to control the brightness level

Touch Sensor Dimmer Switch

Kodak’s making a grand comeback with this comprehensive smartphone photography kit!

Familiar within the photography circuit as one of the absolute biggest companies in film-camera photography, Kodak famously lost out on one of the largest opportunities to pivot to the digital format as the world was slowly moving away from purchasing camera reels and towards the now-ubiquitous SD cards. The company lay low for a while, but is now making its comeback with accessories for the most powerful camera to sit in billions of pockets… the one on your phone!

Kodak’s Smartphone Photography Kit has everything you need to take stunning pictures. They add to your phone’s ability to create great images by giving you depth, lighting, and stability. The kit comes as a collective of three accessories (which can be bought separately too), namely a mini tripod specifically for smartphones, a portrait ring-light that clips onto your phone for great low-light selfies, and a set of 2 clip-on smartphone lenses to give your phone the ability to click ultra-wide and macro images, allowing you to either look at the bigger picture, or to zoom into minute details. With Kodak’s comprehensive smartphone photography kit, you can take that powerful camera in your pocket and click pictures that are incredibly stable, thanks to the tripod, or have a beautiful diffused glow, courtesy the ring light, or just explore the world through literally a different set of lenses! It’s a Kodak Comeback!

When Nokia literally names its phone ‘TOUGH’, you better believe it

Often compared to Thor’s Mjolinr, Nokia’s 3310 is a hallmark in robustness. In 2013, a man’s life was even saved by a Nokia phone as it literally stopped a bullet from entering the man’s chest. The phone, kept in the victim’s chest pocket, took a bit of a beating, but literally was an instance where Nokia could claim their phones were strong enough to stop bullets. Nokia’s phones have a reputation for being tough, although it’s never been a marketing angle for Nokia because phones back in 2000 weren’t really fragile as the phones of today are… but when Nokia literally calls their phone the ‘800 Tough’, you better believe that it can comfortably survive any sort of merciless scenario you put it in.

The 800 Tough is literally one of the toughest smart-ish phones ever built. It comes with a small display and a keypad, just like Nokia’s phones from their glory days, but is 4G capable, and runs apps like Whatsapp, YouTube, Google Maps, and even Facebook. What’s most incredible is that it has a battery life that lasts DAYS, rather than hours. The phone comes with a camera, flashlight, and even supports Google Assistant, giving you all the actual benefits of a smartphone without the addictive frilly bits. Living up to its namesake, the 800 Tough is dust-proof, waterproof, and drop-resistant, so just save yourself the trouble of putting a case on this bad boy because short of stopping bullets, the Nokia 800 Tough can literally take a beating. (although who’s to say that the 800 Tough can’t stop bullets… don’t try it though)

We should have had these simple, sleek, sophisticated phone-grips years ago

Phones are enormous, expensive, and fragile. That’s enough to make any industrial designer wonder why smartphones of today aren’t designed to be easy to grip? Somewhere between the telephones of yesteryear, and the large bricks we try and grip today, we’ve completely forgotten about ergonomic design… and since it’s impossible for smartphones to have handles, and also since pop-sockets are an absolute visual nightmare, here’s the OhSnap, a sleek tool built to complement the sleek frame of your smartphone, but also to give it the gripping ability you deserve.

OhSnap sits directly on the back of any smartphone, with its 3mm thick profile being barely noticeable. Press the center of the OhSnap and the band/handle instantly warps outwards to give you something to grip onto. The otherwise-flat handle assumes a horse-shoe shape, making it easy to hold, or even use as a prop-stand to dock your phone at an angle. You can even go a step further by taking the two ends of the handle and looping them together to form a ring that you can slide your finger into, giving you the ability to hold onto that mammoth of a smartphone as you text with one hand. The loop even rotates so you can use the OhSnap with your left or right hand, in both landscape and portrait mode… or you can just twirl your phone around like a fidget spinner because obviously that’s what most people will end up doing!

The OhSnap’s ability to provide function when needed and recede into the background when wanted is what makes it a superior grip. It slides up and down, letting you reach upper and lower parts of your touchscreen with ease, and the main unit slides out too, for when you want to place your smartphone on a wireless charger. At just 3mm thin, the OhSnap lets you easily slip your phone in and out of your pockets without any hassle, while its ability to be used as a stand or looped for one-hand usage just gives your smartphone the one physical feature it was truly lacking for the past decade… and if that wasn’t enough to seal the deal, the OhSnap is magnetic too, so you can even snap it onto a metal surface like a fridge, locker, gym equipment, or car-mount. I’m not entirely sure how we humans even lived without this accessory.

Slide: Ohsnap allows you to reach every inch on your phone by sliding up and down.

Don’t miss out on our top 10 trending designs from September so far!

September is rapidly getting over but the innovation is not! Here are the best designs from this month that are already turning heads, be it an attachment that allows you to connect 4 SIM cards to your phone to super slim wallets with fifteen layers and invisible stitching that are good for posture while being high on innovation. Just scroll down, have a look and get inspired to create your own innovative design.

This weird, zany attachment for your Samsung phone from SIMore gives your phone an additional 4 sim-slots, allowing you to be a walking-talking living example of someone living the open-market dream. The attachment fits into a dual-sim smartphone’s secondary sim-slot, much like a USB-Hub plugs into a spare USB port. Your primary SIM card still drives the phone, but Simore’s adapter gives you the power of having and using four extra SIM cards, allowing you to own and use up to 5 different numbers (possibly from 5 separate telecom providers!)

YeongKyu Yoo of cloudandco has designed two wallets that are extremely slim – WalletType1 and SlimWalletType1. The former is a bi-fold design with 6 pockets, and the latter is a card wallet with 2 pockets. The key to the form are the layers and the invisible stitches. Sporting a multi-layer construction with uniform thickness, the edges of the wallets are precisely painted for the ultimate seamless look. The wallets look like a solid sheet of beautiful leather and nothing more. To capture the beauty of quality leather, they focused on bringing its texture to the foreground. This meant keeping all unnecessary details invisible, including stitches. The multi-layer construction was carefully conceived so that once assembled, the form is completely uniform in thickness. To finish it off, the edges are precisely painted for the ultimate seamless look — just like a solid sheet of beautiful leather.

Treat your sofa as the beautiful and central part to your home that it should be with designs such as the Lawless Sofa by Evan Fay.

Unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new Lamborghini Siánn explores a whole slew of fresh possibilities for the company.

Having analyzed the shortcomings that current inhalers have, and identified that both the stigma that they carry and their “throwaway” nature are two of their main issues, Ryan Lee Sanderson, Justin Arsenault & Thrive Design created not one, not two, but four inhalers. As the name suggests, the Aria Youth is targeted towards youngsters; it features a rubberized body that will protect it from the inevitable drops that will be thrown it’s way. This, combined with the large paddle accusation makes this product a far more suitable alternative.

Long before planned obsolescence was a thing, products were built to last a lifetime. People would own, use, and reuse products for years, passionately maintaining them for future use, and fixing them if something ever broke. It’s rare to see that sort of passion in today’s products, and the Wingback Mechanical Pen by Alasdair MacLaine is a rare item that embraces that culture of design-for-perpetuity. Buy it now!

Titled the ProPilot, the golf-ball is inspired by Nissan’s ProPilot 2.0 driving technology and is the company’s way of showing how they can fit their incredible self-driving chops into something literally palm-sized. The golf ball obviously isn’t intended for professional use! As a way of demonstrating how small Nissan can go with its self-driving tech, the ball literally finds its way to the hole no matter where you hit it.

The Polaroid Lab is a novel product that lets you rest your smartphone on it, and turns the image on your smartphone screen into a Polaroid photo. The desktop device uses a close-proximity lens to literally take a photo of your screen, turning your high-end smartphone’s photo into a printed picture that you can then scribble a message under and pin to your wall. The Polaroid Lab’s biggest benefits are that you can choose the best photo from hundreds of clicks, edit it and add filters or stickers, and then place your phone with the image loaded on the screen onto the Lab to turn it into a Polaroid snap.

The Turning Chair is a creative take on seating relies on a form that can be flipped 90° to completely change its function!

Plus, get this… the chair’s form is stackable too!

Austin Maynard Architects have designed ‘king bill’ — a playful renovation and extension of a double-story terrace house and neighboring garden. the original house is among the oldest in the Australian suburb, built around 1850. after its 2018 update, it’s now also one of the most inventive.
