Is it a lamp? Or a sculpture? Or both? The Guilin is most appropriately described as a ‘lampscape’. With etched acrylic mountains that sit on an illuminated base, the multiple award-winning Guilin lamp lights up your room with an ambient glow, while also adding sculptural beauty to one’s space… and it purifies the air too.
Principally, the Guilin lampscape comes with a base that uses edge-lit acrylic mountains to disperse light around the room. The abstractly designed edge-lit mountains come made from glass-reinforced acrylic and sit within slots in a metallic base fitted with a low-voltage 2700K warm LED light. The light shines through the base and the clear mountains, bouncing off the lines etched into the acrylic…. but that isn’t all. The Guilin Lamp also works as a photocatalytic air purifier that uses visible light to unlock certain naturally occurring minerals to cleanse the environment of impurities and toxins like 99.99% bacteria, CO2, formaldehyde, and odor particles. A good example of how this works can be found right above you for roughly half a day… the sun. The Guilin Lamp uses a similar light-based treatment to enrich and elevate your surroundings, not just aesthetically, but also in a very tangible way by purifying the very air you breathe… and it does so while channeling the same sort of imagery, hence the mountain-inspired design.
You can shift and orient the mountains to create a landscape that gives you calm or complements your space. You can even cleverly add more mountains to diffuse more light, much like a physical, interactive dimmer mechanism. Designed as an ode to nature and the tranquility of mother earth, the Guilin lamp’s base comes coated in environmentally friendly paint, while the acrylic mountains themselves are made from 40% recycled plastic. Place the Guilin lampscape on a glossy reflective surface and it mimics the feeling of staring at the mountains sitting right behind a lake!
Guilin Lamp – Customizable Designer Lamp That Can Cleanse
A new category in lighting design. With etched acrylic mountains that sit on an illuminated base, the Guilin lamp lights up your room with an ambient glow while also adding sculptural beauty to one’s space and it purifies the air.
The Guilin is embedded with their Photocatalytic Environment Cleansing Treatment. Photocatalysis is a process that uses any visible light (natural or artificial) to activate certain naturally occurring minerals to cleanse the environment of 99.9% of all known bacteria such as E-Coli, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, formaldehyde, odors and molds.
The treatment lasts forever and the more mountains you have on your Lampscape, the better it will cleanse the environment. With the standard Guilin (4 Various Size Hills) are able to cleanse an area approx of 1.8 meter cubic volume.
Designed as an ode to nature, Guilin is a living design and lighting element and you can transform it infinitely. You give shape to your own glowing landscape. You can slot as many mountains as you like in the 3 grooves located at the base and change their position whenever you like. Thus, the lamp puts you into the role of a creator.
The number of mountains you slot and their position can create different lighting effects:
– The more mountains that are placed on the lamp the brighter it becomes. – The reflection between the layering of mountains will increase the brightness.
Unleash your creativity and Combine, Layer or Joint Horizontally several Guilin into an ever-changing rolling Lampscape.
The Guilin Dawn uses their World Exclusive Italian nano-tech acrylic material that changes to a beautiful orange/yellow tint when the lamp is on and magically becomes near transparent when the lamp is off.
Inspiration & Story
When you think of China and its fabled mountains in ancient mythology, you are thinking of the famous Guilin Mountains.
Founders Kevin Chu and Giulia Di Bonaventura went on an adventure trip to Guilin Mountains and there they were mesmerized by the mythical scenery and always thought one day on using the mist-filled mountainous elements to create a design paying tribute to this region. In the beginning Kevin drew up a few criteria for the design to create a lamp that is:
– Unique and Revolutionary – A Functional Illuminating sculpture – With Infinite Customization Possibilities to extend its design longevity made with Sustainable Materials – Simple and Elegant as abstracted visualization of the inspired elements and after 883 days of hard work, Guilin Lamp was born:
Made of Sustainable High Quality Materials and Components, GUILIN consists of a rectangular steel base that is embedded with low voltage warm white (2700K) LED lighting. 5mm thick Glass Fiber Reinforced Acrylic Panels can be placed inside the 3 slots in the base. When the light is switched on the acrylic mountains will absorb the vertical illumination into its Surgical Grade laser engraved lines.
I don’t normally profess a love for complications… unless they are watch complications. There’s a distinct joy in observing mechanical watches and their intricacies, and how multiple pieces of metal choreograph a precisely timed dance to let you literally see time unfold in front of your eyes.
CIGA Design’s Z-Series timepieces feature a handcrafted watch body that encases and showcases. The German Design Award-winning watch comes with a precision-machined Grade-2 Titanium body that surrounds the watch’s custom-made Seagull AAA mechanical movement on the sides, exposing the inner mechanics of the watch on the top and the bottom, so you can both see as well as listen to your watch’s heartbeat.
The watch’s hypnotic mechanical movement sits sandwiched between two layers of scratch-resistant synthetic Sapphire glass. The upper glass’ hyperboloid curvature gives its internal mechanics depth while making sure the case isn’t as thick around the sides. There isn’t a discernible watch face, given its skeletal, transparent nature. The watch’s hands sit directly above the movement, with a beautiful exposed tourbillion meditatively spinning at the 6 o’clock position. The automatic mechanical movement comes with a power reserve of 40 hours and uses your wrist’s motions to charge itself, and a 3ATM rating makes the watch fairly water-resistant. This effectively means that the watch, with its titanium case, can run for centuries on land and water without showing signs of aging!
Each Z-Series watch comes within a beautifully designed case that opens up like a book to reveal the timepiece inside. The watch even comes with a choice between leather and silicone straps (both equally inconsequential because the watch itself is the real show-stopper), and a neat, 2-year warranty.
A sophisticated transparent fully automatic timepiece made from Titanium and Sapphire Crystal that affords its wearer and those around him a chance to marvel at its inner workings and inherent strength.
Grade 2 Titanium Case
Containing the precise mechanics is a shell of Grade 2 Titanium, one of the strongest and most distinctive metals. It has unparalleled corrosion resistance and is 40% stronger and 30% lighter than stainless steel—the current standard for watchmakers.
Customized Seagull AAA-Class Movement ST2553JK
The Seagull AAA automatic self-winding mechanics keep your watch charged without the need for batteries. The natural movement of your wrist literally energizes your watch and makes its wheels and gears move. As you move, a spring winds, storing energy for up to 40 hours. No manual winding required!
– Energy storage of 40 hours – Movement frequency of 21,600 times/hour – Movement error range: -15 to +30 seconds/ 24 hours
SEAGULL is one of the largest manufactures for movements. The brand is known for its advanced technology and precision. CIGA Design is proud to own a customized version for the watches.
Curved Sapphire Crystal Watch Face
Smooth, curvaceous and incredibly strong, just like you need your watch to be. The glass face is fashioned from 1.2mm hyperboloid artificial sapphire for ultimate scratch resistance. Only diamond is stronger.
Fully Transparent Design
Curious about how the intricacy of watch works inside out? Their fully hollow design allows you to see through every part of the mechanics. Giving you the ownership to admire the craftsmanship of the watch at a deeper level. Through their watches, they want you to see, feel and own the watch at work on your wrist.
Titanium is skin-friendly and hypoallergenic and is widely used in medical, jewelry and other manufacturing industries.
Since launching the Tanuki series of Japanese fly-fishing rods at the beginning of 2019, Designer and Engineer Luong Tam has spent the first half of his year delivering on the first edition of the Tanuki Ninja fly-fishing rod, and the second half of the year making the rod fundamentally better. Now even smaller than before, yet just as powerful, the Tanuki Pocket Ninja is a culmination of Tam’s life’s work. Designed to go even smaller when folded, the telescopic rod measures a mere 13 inches in its folded avatar, and expands to a whopping 11 feet when fully opened. In keeping with the art of fly-fishing, the rods are designed to be incredibly flexible and don’t come with a traditional reel. You rely purely on physics, mechanics, handwork, and an understanding of your fishing rod to catch fish.
Tam’s devoted a significant part of his life to developing some of the most sophisticated fly-fishing equipment to his patrons. Relying on tradition as well as advanced material sciences, the Tanuki Pocket Ninja pushes boundaries by being the most portable fly-fishing rod on the market. The Pocket Ninja is also incredibly resilient, bending as much as 180° effortlessly, with incredibly precise casting, high-tolerance parts that withstand tugging against water currents and the fly. The rod comes constructed out of a composite of fiberglass and Japanese Toray high-modulus carbon-fiber, giving it its flexibility and strength while keeping the entire rod weighing not more than 2.5 ounces. Engineered to perfection, the rod’s telescopic design allows it to collapse to a size that’s small enough to slip right into a backpack or the glove compartment of your car, giving you the freedom to fly-fish wherever and whenever. Each Pocket Ninja rod has an anti-slip paint coating around the grip, and comes with an 11ft. long custom-made floating line, a semi-conical line-spool (that prevents free-rolling), traditional Japanese fly-fishing fly, and a lifetime warranty! Now that should definitely get you ‘hooked’!
Tanuki Pocket Ninja – Compact, Lightweight & Flexible Fly-Fishing Rod
The Tanuki Pocket Ninja is designed and built for fly fishers who love outdoor adventure and traveling. The Pocket Ninja is an 11’0″/335 cm long telescopic fly rod when it is fully extended from a 13″ / 33 cm collapsed length. It weighs 2.3 oz/ 65 grams. It is based on the Japanese ancient art of fly fishing, called tenkara (requires just a rod line and a fly).
Flexibility is the Name of the Game
Shorter the sections are, the stiffer the rod becomes. For decades, fishing rod makers have been struggling to make a flexible rod with decent rod actions/flex with shorter collapsed sections that are less than 17”. Designer Luong Tam, thought the solution is in the materials. The team used fiberglass and carbon fiber to solve the problem.
The Result: Easy to Cast
Easy to cast and fun to fish with.
The Pocket Ninja is a fantastic rod fishing with Japanese fly pattern Kebari and dry fly. It is also an excellent rod for Contact Nymphing, Euro-Nymphing or Highstick Nymphing, and here are the reasons:
– It is a very high SENSITIVITY rod which would help fisher to feel fly contact with objects in deep water. – Designed to cast with a very fine line. The fine line would sink faster because it is less friction. – It is better ergonomics than Nymphing fly rod because Pocket Ninja weight only 2.2 oz vs about 38 oz of nymphing fly rod.
You’d be surprised what water and salt could do if combined in the correct way. Say hello to the Egret EO Blaster, an all-purpose cleaning spray that relies on the power of electrolyzed water to replace practically every other cleaning agent you use. When electrolyzed, the water and salt turn into a solution of hypochlorous acid and sodium hydroxide, which acts as a remarkable detergent and disinfectant, instantly killing bacteria, cleansing off harmful chemicals from food, purifying the air, as well as busting odors. The technology, which has existed for over 4 decades, creates an all-purpose cleaning solution that replaces the need for carpet-cleaners, floor-cleaners, room-fresheners, car-fresheners, fruit and vegetable purifiers, and general disinfectants. Needless to say, the electrolyzed water is food-safe, child-safe, and eliminates the need to clean your house with chemicals that aren’t healthy… and the Egret EO Blaster, a small, portable spraying device, can electrolyze and spray the water directly from within its hand-held, wireless form factor.
The Egret EO Blaster, according to Egret Labs, was created to combat three areas. Firstly, the use of toxic cleaners and disinfectants at home; Secondly, the sheer number of plastic bottles bought, used and thrown every year; and Thirdly, the amount of money wasted on different brands, solvents, and apparatuses to keep your house clean. In its patented design, the Egret EO Blaster lets you mix water and salt in, as the machine internally electrolyzes it into EO, allowing you to spray the electrolyzed solution or EO onto everything from cars to carpets, curtains, fruits, baby toys, pet toys, floors, in the air, or anywhere where germs like bacteria, viruses, molds, and odor-particles find themselves. Spray it anywhere and the electrolyzed water can instantly kill 99.95% of all harmful bacteria and viruses, while also breaking apart odor molecules to clean and purify products, food, and spaces.
The use of electrolyzed water as a disinfectant and sanitizer has existed for decades in the agricultural, medical, and scientific communities, but never in a device that’s portable and made for consumers. The Egret EO Blaster scales the technology down and helps standardize it in a way where the electrolyzed water is always consistent in its potency. The only drawback to electrolyzed water is the fact that it needs to be used instantly since it loses its potency if left standing for too long, but the Egret EO Blaster’s patented technology can electrolyze water in just under a minute, giving you fresh, non-toxic, 100% natural, preservative-free disinfectant that replaces your need to constantly buy (and then subsequently throw away) multiple bottles of floor cleaner, air-freshener, sanitizer, detergent-spray, car-cleaner, food and utensil cleaner, or even bleach every single year. The Egret EO Blaster comes with the spraying device, a Type-C charging cable, a standardized spoon to measure out the table-salt, and a lifetime warranty on any manufacturing defects. The electrolyzer module lasts for 3 years with regular use, and doesn’t require any additional solvents, capsules, or parts to keep it running. Besides, it saves the earth, preventing harmful chemicals and plastic waste from entering the environment, and it saves you a fair bit of money too, given that you’re only using a couple of dollars worth of water and salt in an entire year!
Egret EO Blaster – Next Generation Cleaning Device & Deodorizer
100% natural and non-toxic, using patented technology and the power of Electrolyzed water (EO water), the Egret kills germs and removes bad smells in your home in seconds.
All you need to create this natural cleaning solution is tap water, home salt, and Egret. In 60 seconds, Egret creates EO water, ready for you to sterilize and remove odors anywhere you want.
With its fully-automatic spray mechanism, Egret produces a fine spray of EO water, able to reach those unreachable parts of your home, like the gaps in your sofa.
Egret can act as an air purifier which also removes the TVOC and PM2.5 particles in the air. It can protect you and your children away from these chemicals.
Egret will sterilize and deodorize everything even your clothes, carpets, furniture, shoes and anything else.
The Tech Behind How Egret Works
Egret works by harnessing the power of electrolyzed water, or EO water. When you pass electricity through a saltwater mixture, you create EO water. EO water:
– Exterminates 99.95% of viruses and germs that it comes into contact with. – It is completely safe, sterile and non-toxic and eco-friendly! – Literally blows up bacteria by breaking its outer cells and bursting it with water.
All you have to do is add tap water and a tablespoon of salt to your Egret device and wait 60 seconds.
The Science Behind the Tech
Hypochlorous acid and OH radicals are produced through electrolysis process from salt and water.
Hypochlorous acid is a safe sterilizer that works similar to bleach but without the toxic. It is suitable for cleaning baby items and even food.
OH radical is another common ingredient commonly found in cleaning agents. The OH radical in their EO water is less concentrated than common cleaning agents – making it safe but still sufficient to kill most germs and viruses.
Sterilization Ability of Egret Electrolyzed Water
An independent third-party testing center, the SGS testing laboratory tested and analyzed the sterilization ability on bacteria and virus, the deodorization ability and pesticide removal ability of Egret.
The test results show that with only 30 seconds of exposure of EO water on the bacteria and virus, the killing rate was greater than 99.99%. Also, Egret removed all pesticides within 5 minutes.

There’s something absolutely therapeutic about the way the Uplift 2.0 just ambiently spins on its own, like a fidget-spinner powered by sunlight! The endlessly spinning spiral captures your gaze while spinning at a pace that almost instantly brings your heartbeat down, both focusing you and relaxing you at the same time.
The Uplift 2.0 comes powered by a solar-engine, a contact-less rotary drive system with little to no inertia. Place the apparatus on your desk facing a window or under a lamp and the light instantly actuates the engine. The Uplift 2.0 comes with a magnetic wand to help push the spiral to rotate endlessly. You can choose whether you want the spiral to rotate clockwise or in reverse, giving it the impression of traveling either upwards or downwards.
Designer Tom Lawton says “There isn’t really a wrong or a right way. Steam rises, whirlwinds and smoke flow upwards — molten lava, waterfalls and whirlpools flow down”.
Building on the success of its predecessor, the Uplift 2.0 takes things further with its smooth, translucent blue spiral that comes made from recycled fishing nets. Sitting on a walnut base, under a delicate borosilicate dome, the Uplift 2.0 embodies the essence of purity. It runs on sunlight, repurposes harmful waste into beautiful art, clears the mind, and nourishes the soul with the way it spins in a meditative fashion.
Early backers of the Uplift 2.0 even get a flipbook of the Uplift in action printed on recycled paper, allowing you to carry the childlike joy of the spinning toy with you as a reminder to take a deep breath and go with the flow!
Uplift 2.0 – Unwinding Spiral Sculpture to Soothe the Soul
Made from waste fishing nets, the Uplift 2.0 creates a mesmerizing, never-ending spiral that inspires you to unwind, as it gracefully turns the sun’s power into a hypnotic flowing motion. “Uplift is so hypnotic. I could watch it forever.” Jamie Oliver, Chef
The limited edition spiral is made from an industrially purified stream of waste fishing nets, sourced from the Hake Fisheries in Cornwall, England.
Uplift 2.0 loves a sunny window sill but still works well under an overcast sky. It responds subtly to variations in the sun’s power and its speed is tethered at a relaxing 40 revolutions per minute.
Let it go. Let it flow.
The spiral can turn freely in either direction.
You can of course choose which way it turns by interacting with the spiral using the magnetic wand provided.
Better recycled than left in the ocean
Designed to last a lifetime and made from responsibly sourced materials, including waste fishing nets which are used to re-manufacture the spiral. Each unit is hand-assembled in the UK.

Easy to Assemble
3D Printing Highlights – Auto Leveling
Bed leveling is a tricky process, especially for a large heated bed and inexperienced users. To make bed leveling easier, we added an auto-leveling function. An induction sensor can probe the bed in a grid and apply mesh-based compensation that ensures you print on a level bed every time, all without the user having to go through complicated process.
Filament Runout Recovery
Equipped with a filament runout sensor, those who are looking to print a large object can now print without fear. This will prevent unfinished prints and “air printing”. Once it realizes that the filament has run out, the touchscreen will notify you to load a new filament and allow you to resume printing immediately.
Upgraded Cooling System
With Snapmaker 2.0, you can print objects with deep overhangs and get a more smooth finished surface! Cooling is just as important as heating when it comes to FDM 3D printing. For the Snapmaker 2.0, the cooling system is re-designed to cool the print in the most efficient way.
Removing a print is now easier than ever. Just lift the plate and flex it, no matter the size or shape of your print. As the heated bed uses a magnetic design, you can easily remove and put back the print sheet, or change it with the laser cutting work table or CNC carving in one minute.
Laser Highlights – Built-in Camera
The built-in camera allows you to preview your design with whatever material you use. You can edit your design and precisely position it exactly where you want it to be. What you see is what you get!
Draw, Cut and Capture
Laser cutting can be as easy as drawing. The Snapmaker 2.0 can recognize and transform your drawing into a vector image for laser engraving or cutting. Furthermore, you can edit the converted vector image directly in the Snapmaker software to fit into all your creative projects!
Faster is better. We added the Line (Normal Quality) mode to provide you a fast engraving option for grayscale images. This feature can save you hours when engraving big grayscale images. The quality is still very good compared to the original Dot (High Quality) mode.
Aluminum Grid Table
The Aluminum Grid Table is specially designed to prevent damage to the bed by defocusing the laser beam during cutting. It is removable and super firm.
CNC Highlights – ER11 COLLET
Snapmaker 2.0 features a fully upgraded CNC module. Using the standard ER11 Collet, it guarantees a better concentricity that allows for faster CNC carving speed and larger step down, which saves your time significantly. It also supports over one hundred carving and cutting bits. The diameters of the bits range from 0.5mm (0.020 inches) to 6.35mm (0.250 inches).
Wasteboard and Clamping Kits
Each Snapmaker 2.0 comes with an MDF wasteboard. It’s removable and it can protect the bed from damage as well as providing a smooth and leveled surface for precise CNC carving. Furthermore, you can use the provided aluminum clamping kits to hold down the materials more easily and more reliably.
Snapmaker 2.0’s linear module has been upgraded for easy maintenance. The leadscrew, driver chip and precision parts are completely enclosed in the aluminum alloys housings. It eliminates the problem of dirt accumulation, resulting in better durability.
Small enough to fit into any bag, but powerful enough to rival your barista’s espresso-making setup, this is COFFEEJACK… A pint-sized coffee machine that has a patent-pending micro-hydraulic press inside it that can pump out coffee at a magical excess of 9 bars of pressure, rivaling any professional-grade espresso maker.
COFFEEJACK comes from the folks at Hribarcain, famed for their great work in the EDC department. Now, they’ve set out to shrink the coffee machine to a form factor so small, you might as well carry it around everywhere you go along with the rest of your belongings. The COFFEEJACK works with any coffee-grind, enabling you to have your favorite espresso anywhere you go, while also reducing your dependence on those earth-polluting Nespresso and Keurig pods. Just add your coffee grind to the lower chamber and COFFEEJACK’s in-built tamper will level the grounds and pack them tightly. Open out the pump and pour hot water into the upper chamber and you’re ready to go! The espresso maker’s manual pump matches the high-pressure output of most coffee machines, giving you an espresso that is as deliciously thick and even has that layer of flavor-packed crema on top, just like the one your barista makes with professional equipment.
The patent-pending hydraulic pump at the heart of the COFFEEJACK is what sets it apart. Unlike your domestic french-press or pour-over setup, COFFEEJACK creates the 9-10 bars of pressure needed for a great espresso. Your pour-over and french-press don’t exceed 1 bar of pressure, while the Moka pot and Aeropress peak at roughly 3-4 bars. COFFEEJACK’s high-pressure internal pump, coupled with its ridiculously small size gives it an advantage on all fronts, keeping it as portable as your Aeropress, affordable as your domestic setup, as top-notch as the coffee machine your local café uses, and a whole lot more eco-friendly than those pod-based coffee delivery systems, because the COFFEEJACK is made 100% out of recycled plastic!

With years of reflector-science experience under their belt, the guys at FLECTR are back with yet another accessory that promises to keep people safe at night. Manifesting its form in the avatar of a clip-on device, the FLECTR CLIP brings reflective technology to a nifty wearable that can either attach to your bag, body, or to the rear of your bicycle.
Built with FLECTR’s award-winning micro prismatic reflective film, the FLECTR CLIP comes in three body-varieties that let it hang from the back of your bike’s saddle, slide onto the strap of your messenger/sling bag, or magnetically snap anywhere on your clothes or backpack. The saddle-unit features two cuts that sit on the rear of your bike, while the strap-mount slides onto virtually any webbing up to 52 mm (2″) in width. The magnetic mount offers even more versatility, with a counter-magnet that allows you to snap the clip anywhere on your clothes, ensuring low-light visibility.
Bringing enhanced visibility to your bike and your person, the FLECTR CLIP makes stepping out at night or early in the morning measurably safer. The clips work off ambient/stray light and don’t require any internal energy or power input of their own, allowing them to stay illuminated for as long as you use them. Available in three colors, the clips are even designed to be flexible yet indestructible, allowing you to use and reuse them for years… because safety is something you should practice every day.
FLECTR CLIP – Your Ultimate Protector in the Darkness
The FLECTR CLIP comes in three different designs and it lets you be seen instantly. Just clip it to your bike, bag or clothing.
For joggers, bikers or pedestrians, the FLECTR CLIP keeps you safe in the darkness and catches any car driver’s attention before it’s too late.
Three Designs, Endless Possibilities
FLECTR CLIP is a family of 3 universal safety parts. Three designs, endless possibilities.
All FLECTR CLIPs are flexible and virtually indestructible. Manufactured in Europe both sides are reflective.
The Strap Mount version fits any webbing up to 52 mm (2″) width. Front color: fluorescent lime green, the back is silver.
FLECTR CLIP for Saddle Mount is the ideal rear reflector for almost any bike. The team have chosen a special color – neon red-orange – for this reflector. It reflects almost twice the amount of light as classic red. Its backside reflects silver, like all other CLIPs.
The magnetic CLIP is a little workhorse. With its strong built-in magnet, it can be worn on any clothing, (a counter-magnet is supplied), or attached to bike bags and steel surfaces. Front color: fluorescent lime green or orange, back: silver.
Are Reflectors Better Than Electric Lighting?
Reflectors do not require maintenance and are still there for you even if your lighting fails. Cheap clip-on reflectors are often paired with tiny LEDs. In fact, inferior materials are almost always used here.
Ultimately, when the battery is empty, you realize a change is hardly worthwhile. Regarding cycling: Reflectors and bicycle lighting both form a system and should always be used together – you decide how much safety you need to feel comfortable cycling. Both increase your visibility for car drivers when riding at night.
My social crusade against plastic cutlery isn’t that it’s just bad for the earth… it’s also just ridiculously flimsy. The very idea that something could be designed to be used just once baffles me, because it means the product won’t be useful ‘more than once’. Isn’t that strange? Something so badly designed that you’ll want to throw it after using it? Well, if you’ve got problems with plastic cutlery, you’re not alone. Hundreds of thousands of people are now a part of the “Bring Your Own Cutlery” movement, which promotes people to just simply carry their own travel-cutlery with them as a part of their EDC.
Designed to spearhead the BYOC movement with cutlery that’s always together and with you, the Magware by Full Windsor uses a nifty magnetic system to combine spoon, fork, and knife into one single organized set. Rather than physically integrating pieces of cutlery into a single solution like the spork or the splade, Full Windsor simply attached magnets to them, giving you the ability to carry all your cutlery in a single, convenient unit. Magware (a magnetically attached portmanteau of the words magnets and flatware) allows you to carry separate pieces of cutlery, but together. The trio of flatware just snap together instantly, making sure you can easily carry all three pieces of cutlery in a unified set without accidentally forgetting one of them behind. Together, they weigh just 1.6 ounces, making them light enough to just chuck into your bag and carry around, taking them out whenever needed. Moreover, you can snap multiple sets together into a single unit that’s easy to carry and distribute to your friends and family while dining. Made from food-safe and heat-resistant 7075-T6 Aluminum, Magware are more robust and reliable (and reusable) than plastic cutlery, and frankly, are a classy upgrade too. Each piece of flatware comes with two magnetic inserts around the grip, with a recycled polypropylene cover. The polypropylene cover leaves a small gap between each piece of cutlery, preventing them from touching or scratching each other, while also giving the Magware a neat plastic-to-plastic interface that snaps together with a satisfying click. The Magware are available in a series of absolutely gorgeous anodized colors that are so beautiful you’ll WANT to ditch plastic cutlery… oh, and if you’re in the mood for some outdoor ramen, Magware has a set of magnetic chopsticks too!
Magware Magnetic Flatware: End Single-Use Plastics
Magware Magnetic Flatware have been designed to address a major problem facing our planet. We throw away billions of single use plastic utensils every year, and many of them end up in our Oceans and Waterways. Bring Your Own (BYO) Cutlery movement could help reduce the number of disposable utensils that get thrown away every year.
Colors inspired by nature.
Plastics never fully break down but rather degrade into small pieces that resemble food scraps to fish and other sea animals. The Ocean Conservancy lists plastic utensils as among the items “most deadly” to sea turtles, sea birds, and other Ocean creatures due to their size and to the ease they enter our waterways.
The Bring Your Own (BYO) Movement
The same way as carrying drink bottles has started to become ubiquitous to people’s everyday lives, the hope is to see non-disposable utensils being used in the same way. Magware utensils are a simple light-weight solution to help in this mission, by making them as organized and easy to carry as possible.
Stack any number of sets together.
Create any color combinations you wish.
Hypalon is extremely durable, water proof, easy to clean and stain resistant. Hypalon is so tough it is the material that they make inflatable boats from. The team has used high strength velcro for the closing mechanism. The full set pouch also has a thick elastic strap attached to give it an even firmer close. Both pouches should last a lifetime.
