Bring your yard to life with furniture designed to help you unwind + de-stress this summer!

Since COVID-19 shook up our world, we find ourselves spending more and more time at home. However, sitting in the same old four walls of our bedroom can become quite boring, and sometimes the only fresh air we really get is when we step out into our yards. Although we shouldn’t underestimate our backyards, they can be locations of major fun, recreation, and relaxation…depending on how we do them up! Adding a few pieces of cozy and interesting outdoor furniture pieces can really transform our yards. From a multifunctional design that serves as a barbecue, sofa, and champagne bar to a throne-like hammock – we’ve curated a bunch of exciting furniture designs that will completely liven up your yard! You don’t need to step out of your home to have a good time now. Enjoy!

The Rocco multifunctional outdoor furniture by Moróro is a barbecue, a sofa, a champagne bar, and more! 2020 has been about creating intimate moments at home, and nothing says intimate like a cozy evening in your backyard! To take things up a notch, we have Rocco which is an all-rounder piece of outdoor furniture. Its clever design transforms it from a fun barbecue into a sofa or champagne bar and even a smores pit – I think it’s safe to say Rocco is an essential this year! You can add a fire bowl to the base or choose from various other accessories like a grill, tabletop, ice bucket, and parasol base. Customize Rocco to fit what you define as a chill evening.

The inspiration for this model came from the fact that there was nothing in the market that was sleek or modern enough to go with the interiors of today’s houses and that is how the MDK9 Dog Haus came to be – no more hiding the kennel in your backyard! This dog house is your pet’s dream house, it’s crafted with Brazilian teak wood responsible for the classy look which rests on a powder-coated steel frame so it’s sturdy. To make it long-lasting, the base of the dog house is made from concrete which also adds to the existing strong structure.

The modular outdoor kitchen – that includes a bar – is made from weather-resistant corten steel, similar to the brand’s other products for home and garden. Laid out beautifully for cooking and serving cocktails al fresco, this outdoor kitchen setup is equipped with an electric, gas, or charcoal grill and wooden cutting board to cater to the cooking needs. A kitchen is not complete without its washing area –Convivium Mobile Bar is fitted with a stainless steel sink that features pull-out taps, so the outright appeal and distinctive appearances of the design are maintained.

The Minka Solar Pod operates primarily as an alternative to meeting places and WFH spots like WeWork and cafes with WiFi. Unlike their indoor counterpart, the Minka Solar Pod and its amenities are entirely powered by photovoltaic panels and lithium-ion batteries. Using solar energy for power allows Minka Solar Pods to be placed anywhere, from busy city plazas like Union Square or public grounds like Hyde Park. Designed to be an outdoor working space, Minka Solar Pods come complete with four USB ports for charging and acoustic panels to quiet outdoor noise while amplifying the conversations taking place inside the pod. It could be the perfect backyard office!

The Cacoon is the hammock upgrade that you can hang from anywhere and instantly make it your cozy little zen space! Designed to feel like a hammock, but to give you the leisure and shade of a tent, the Cacoon is perfect for turning any space into an instant recreation and chill zone. The Cacoon is available in different colors as well as sizes, so you can choose between going solo, or chilling with your crew! Wait… did I also mention that it’s absolutely portable?

The Cercle’s frame is designed to perform everything from sitting, cooking, working, resting, or even sleeping. So, this two-wheeled paradise is all you need to be classified as a crazy 21st-century nomad who’s leaving virtually no carbon footprint during their solo exploration. If you notice closely, the circular frame of the bicycle holds the foldable day bed stands in the middle. The frame can be oriented for multiple functionalities – for example, for sleeping in the nighttime or as a chair for a comfortable working position or lounger in a picturesque location. Consequently, when it is time to hit the road, the lounge stand folds up to become a part of the bicycle frame for hassle-free pedaling.

Patricia Urquiola designed The Swing Chair for Louis Vuitton! The chair has been inspired by LV’s handbags. Two leather-covered metallic handles hold and support a woven mesh and it instantly makes you think of a handbag. It’s a sophisticated piece of furniture that would look lovely in your backyard or balcony!

The Sunda 2.0 is an outdoor tent that can be used on land or in the skies. Perfect for any sort of weather, you can pitch the Sunda 2.0 up either on dry ground or suspend it between trees during the rain or snowfall. I’d personally prefer the latter just for the view! Designed to house up to 2 people, the Sunda 2.0 uses a simplified architecture that allows it to compress into a duffle bag when folded. Assembling it is a breeze too, thanks to its three spines that use tensile integrity to prop the tent up. The tent’s longitudinal design easily fits people over 6-ft tall into it, while its robust construction and reinforced floor make it practically impervious to damage from the elements. You can have a camping session in your backyard now!

The Israel-based Segment development company combines aluminum with different materials to create a series of unique profiles that enable facade designs that are ever-changing and fit perfectly to their client’s vision. One of the many advantages of the segment is the wide variety of profiles that can be used for varying applications. These aluminum profiles are very strong and durable and fit perfectly to withstand outdoor conditions in nearly any climate. As such, they are also great for wet areas and indoor applications. Ideal for use on outdoor kitchens and furniture, these pieces are constructed from modular bodies made of aluminum, 15mm in thickness, combined with other materials like wood, terrazzo, resista, and more. Together they provide a strong, durable product that offers complete design freedom.


Meet Campster – the most compact, lightweight. durable and portable chair! After selling over 100,000 pieces, intense market analysis, and tonnes of feedback, Copenhagen-based Sitpack refined the camping chair to make one that is truly the king of camping thrones! The idea behind this chair is simple – you can take it anywhere and you can sit anywhere. The company’s goal is to always create products with multiple usages and timeless design. Constructed from high-end materials, this three-legged chair will let you take a seat wherever you are while ensuring comfort, maneuverability, and stability. Campster’s one-piece telescoping design uses gravity to unfold and Sitpack’s trademark “one-pull” locking system to keep it sturdily in place!

Airstream’s Pottery Barn Travel Trailer is here to elevate your outdoor glamping experience!

When Pottery Barn and Airstream join forces to create a travel trailer experience, it is bound to be remarkable. Airstream has long been associated with staycations and camping experiences; however, the pandemic has brought on a wave of wanderlust, and the influx of glamping culture means the humble RV was due for a luxury revamp just about now! Named the Pottery Barn Special Edition Trailer, this design showcases “casual sophistication” and is meant for adventure addicts who fancy the style and luxury of living life king-size. According to Marta Benson, President of Pottery Barn, “We were as excited as our customers to see how we could apply Pottery Barn’s design expertise to Airstream’s live anywhere mentality, and we couldn’t be more excited about the results.”

A study conducted by the RV Industry Association (RVIA) reveals that RV ownership has increased by more than 62 percent in the past two decades. The Pacific Coast Highway inspires this special edition and is based on the Airstream’s 28-foot International model. The trailer is built for couples and solo travelers as it features queen or twin bed sleeping configurations. In addition to that, the airy interior space can accommodate up to 4 guests in the rest of the cabin. The interiors of the travel trailer are draped in Pottery Barn’s matte-black pull-down faucet, a stainless-steel flat apron sink, and solid walnut cutting board sink cover. Pottery Barn influences everywhere, right from the 16-piece Mason Stoneware Dinnerware Set, solid oak dinette table inspired by their Benchwright Dining Collection, to the couch with custom cushions inspired by Pottery Barn’s Big Sur Collection the bedroom’s single queen/two twin beds enveloped in Belgian Flax linens.

On the outside, the Airstream gets an outdoor folding table joined to the exterior and armchair set. It is shaded by the specially designed pull-out awning, making it an ideal spot for evening meals. According to Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler, Pottery Barn has an eye for comfortable, functional beauty, and they’ve applied their prowess to the Airstream lifestyle perfectly. The travel trailer weighs 7,600 pounds, so you’ll need to hook it on to a full-size truck or a powerful SUV to tow it around for your road trips. Eager buyers can get the Airstream Pottery Barn Special Edition Travel Trailer at a starting price tag of $145,500 via dealers all across the U.S.

This personal workstation retracts and unfolds with ease while working from outside!

Working from home sometimes really means working from anywhere we want. Some of us prefer a quiet coffee shop with WiFi, maybe a library or public workspace like WeWork. The rest of us will work just fine beneath a tree in a park. Industrial designer Matan Rechter developed Shelly, a personal outdoor workspace, to create some privacy and shade for the workdays we spend outdoors.

Inspired by the recent global move to working from home, Rechter designed Shelly to create a sense of privacy for concentration and productivity when working in outdoor spaces like public parks. Named after its shell-creating capabilities, Shelly features a canopy that folds in and out. Constructed from aluminum profiles and synthetic Cordura fabric, Shelly is built to protect users and their electronics from UV radiation. Rechter designed Shelly to be convenient and easy to transport, making working outdoors as comfortable and accessible as working from home. The canopy’s folding segments retract and extend like an armadillo’s shell. When users need some shade, Shelly’s bench pops into an upright position and the attached roof unfurls overhead. When packing Shelly away, the roof retracts just as easily as it unfurls and the bench folds into itself for portability.

The WFH movement has brought our laptops and notebooks everywhere but home. Working outdoors in public parks or even our own backyard has become more tempting as each workweek draws on. Rechter designed Shelly as a means for privacy and shaded comfort while we work under the sun, protecting our skin from harsh UV rays and our laptops from overheating.

Designer: Matan Rechter

Shelly retracts and unfolds like an armadillo shell to provide ultimate comfort and protection against the sun.

This swiveling, hitch-mounted grill makes setting up and cooking outdoor the easiest camping job ever!

Going for an adventure every weekend and happen to be a die-hard foodie too? Then there is a grill that’s made just right for your exhilarating lifestyle that stops at nothing. STEL Design has joined forces with HitchFire to create a cooking ecosystem dubbed Forge 15 Rugged 2 Burner Grill that’s ready for any off-road escapade you throw at it. The design of the grill revolves around a few important things – extended functionality without sacrificing simplicity, having a strong form factor but still being lightweight and rugged enough for the extreme terrains while maintaining an attractive design. STEL envisions this product to be a staple “on every outdoor adventurer and car camper’s vehicle.”

The outdoor grill has balanced design aesthetics at the core with the robustness of lightweight tubular frame construction to take on any abuse from the off-road environment coming its way. It has practically designed dual-zone, high-output BTU propane burners with easily cleanable aesthetics. Forge 15 grill boasts a fold-out prep table for easy stowing and an easy-to-read temperature gauge, big steel handle, removable grease tray, a built-in bottle opener, and weatherproof cover. While tucked in the tailgate of the vehicle while traveling, when the time comes to set up camp, the pivoting swingarm moves the grill away from the vehicle for cooking. The swivel grill can also be detached for tabletop grilling when required. Also, there is a hard maple cutting board to increase the prep surface – and it can be removed to carry meals to the table. Forge has a 355 square inch cooking surface enough for 10 people and you don’t have to carry around bulky propane tanks, since it works perfectly fine with 16-oz propane bottles.

While doing all that the design can take on inclement weather conditions and toughest conditions – perfect for undiscovered trails and unknown expeditions. The unique hitch-based grill design is inspired by the most intriguing adventures, road trips and love of outdoor living. It can be used to fire up some burgers and steaks for a full-scale tailgate party or a muted bonfire socializing with other crazy adventurers en route to the next trail. This has to be the beginning of a new era for Overlanding and adventure grilling, as outdoor cooking becomes accessible and so much more fun. Forge 15 Rugged 2 Burner Grill definitely brings a new dimension to grilling under the stars in picturesque locations that are an adventurer’s dopamine!

This Modular Café lets your ‘pick and choose’ your kitchen appliance, delivering an easily customizable station to brew your favorite coffee!

One of the things I miss the most is the smell my neighborhood coffee shop entices with. While our lifestyle is returning to normal, I still don’t feel comfortable entering crowded places, including the aforementioned coffee shop. With the idea of a modular café – the designers prefer to call Oblige – we can decrease the load from our kitchen and get the best of what the café down the street promises. How do you ask? By creating one sleek appliance, you can easily install it anywhere in your home without worrying about connecting multiple power/water outlets to keep it functioning!

Meet the Oblige, an entertainment space where homeowners can depict their personal traits by customizing the modular appliance to their individual lifestyle or living space. The modular cafe intends to go beyond the idea of the basic functions the appliances in your kitchen perform. The designers behind Oblige feel setting up a café at home is inconvenient for now because it’s not easy to set up space with all the appliances required. Connecting them all to water and electrical sources is another headache. Simply thinking of brewing a good coffee – you need a list of appliances – from your coffee grinder, the pod-maker, espresso brewer, milk frother, and more, depending on your choice!

Oblige lets the user select and combine an appliance (ice maker, soda maker, water purifier, coffee grinder, espresso machine, kettle, and oven) as per their convenience and preference. If the need arises, users can combine more modules to cater to their extended demand while retaining visually similar aesthetics. These products club up together with a simple mechanism in the bottom; adding and removing them or installing the café setup on modular furniture outside the kitchen is feasible as Oblige will work on one power and water supply connection, irrespective of the interconnected modules needed in the setup.

If you’re looking to achieve a café-like experience, to quench the urge of working out of a Starbucks, an Oblige can really oblige you through the setup one day. It’s the designer’s vision to partner with furniture and lifestyle companies going forward to deliver, say, a LEGO-style modular café for your apartment someday.

This backpack is designed for stylish millennials who want to add a pop of colour to office outfit!

It’s no secret that today’s younger generations look at work differently. Just because ‘adulting’ was once equated with a 9-5 office job, it doesn’t mean it still is or that we ever have to lose our own sense of style while working one. Today’s younger generations are geared towards more casual, remote working anyway, workplaces have implemented more transparent and inclusive business models, and employers are steadily recognizing the value in each of their employee’s unique personalities and perspectives. Named after the German word for “young,” the Jung Business Backpack designed by Nicole Nassif was created for the young (or old) professional who wants to show off their personal style inside and outside of the office.

Nassif set out to build a backpack that’s conventional in function, yet unconventional in appearance. The Jung Business Backpack takes care of all the practical needs as your standard business bag. Inside, a padded laptop sleeve protects your personal computer from any potential damage following a fall or drop. Then, an outer sleeve wraps over the backpack’s main zipper, offering an extra buffer against any potential damage and a place to tie any items or carabiners to the outside of your backpack. Nassif stitched accessory pockets to the exterior of the Jung Business Backpack, providing spaces for you to keep your smartphone, stationery, and car keys. Each leather pocket is also given a primary color, answering Nassif’s whimsical blueprint. Plastic bubbles were also sewn into Jung’s outer sleeve to provide an added layer of protection against the elements and theft, keeping your accessories safe inside their bubbles.

Maintaining the backpack’s traditional silhouette, Nassif gave the Jung Business Backpack a rectangular shape, rounding its corners to give it a less rigid form and echo its young personality. Combining playful colors with heavy-duty materials and an overall minimalist personality, Nassif built the Jung Business Backpack to remind us all that work doesn’t have to be so serious all the time.

Nicole Nassif set out to design a backpack that’s conventional in function and unconventional in appearance.

Nassif’s final prototype envisions plastic bubbles to cover leather accessory pockets.

Named after the German word for “young,” Jung Backpack is whimsical in appearance but gets the job done in the office.

Accessory pockets line the outside of Jung, while a padded laptop pocket fills up a quarter of its interior space. The backpack’s outer sleeve wraps around Jung’s exterior with plastic buckles that leave room to tie any items or carabiners.

Nassif aimed to create a minimalist backpack, adding whimsical accents like primary color pockets.

Vintage-inspired product designs with modern functionality to take you on a trip down memory lane!

If there’s one thing that I simply cannot resist – it’s anything vintage! I love product designs that evoke a deep sense of nostalgia within us and take us right back to the golden days! As innovative and futuristic products are today, sometimes you just feel like escaping from all the modernism and immersing yourself in the simplicity of the past. To help you experience this, we’ve curated a collection of vintage-inspired products that promise to take you on a trip down memory lane. Though these products are wonderfully vintage-esque, they have been imbibed with modern functionality. Their aesthetics may be from their past, but their utility is embedded in the future. Who says you can’t live in the past AND the future?!

At the very center of the NIXOID NEXT is its crown jewel, the watch face with rare VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) tubes that emit a warm orange glow as the numbers light up to tell you the time. These tubes were discovered sitting in a warehouse untouched since the days of the USSR (an Easter egg that makes it to the video above too), making the watch practically a historic limited-edition collectible. The numbers are encased in air-tight glass tubes with a vacuum inside them and come with blue lights fitted on the base that gives it an incredible visual contrast. The NIXOID NEXT is also the world’s first dual-core watch, with one core dedicated to keeping the watch running, and another core for powering the watch’s built-in accelerometer.

Harkening back to the halcyon days of pre-war motoring when transportation was equal parts speed, style, and skill, the Golden Age captures this sentiment in a modern incarnation. The Golden Age is best described as a modified version of the BMW C400X, with its spiritual ancestor being the classic 1930 Henderson Model KJ Streamline. With a curvaceous design that’s highly reminiscent of the automobiles from a century ago, the Golden Age is just a vintage-inspired treat to look at… complete with chrome trims to punctuate the curved black volumes, a classic circular headlight, and a plush leather throne for the rider to sit on.

Inspired by the powerhouse marque, Sajdin Osmancevic designed a luxury coffeemaker in the style of the Bugatti Type 35, with a finished look fit for the post-race winner’s circle. In order to get the coffee machine going, users simply flip open the golden emblem at the top of the arch-shaped, gridded radiator, to insert their preferred coffee capsule and wait for hot coffee to pour from the Bugatti logo. Moving to the coffee machine’s bulbous backside, reminiscent of the Bugatti Type 35’s spherical and triangular rear wing, users will find the coffee machine’s rear switch dial, a scaled replica of Type 35’s petrol tank where either a single or double shot of espresso can be chosen for brewing.

The Retro Heated Coaster was designed to resemble a groovy household item you’d expect to see in a home during the early 60s, but its heating function brings it up to date and allows you to enjoy your cup of coffee or tea for as long as you’d like. Designed to appear as a record player, The Retro Heated Coaster dons art-deco tones of pristine pink, scarlet red, emerald green, and parlor blue, and the coaster’s knobs and display screens are reminiscent of a turntable’s cartridge or tonearm. The imitative cartridge on the coaster works as a dial for the product’s timing feature which aids in operating an electrical heater similar to that of an electric tea kettle.

Commemorating the golden era of two-wheel motorsports from the yesteryears, Italian custom moto builder GDesign has put together a nostalgic take on the adrenaline arousing era’s racers of board track racing. Called the Elettracker, the all-electric bike evokes a century ago period – so much has changed since then, hasn’t it? The bike infuses an element of modern to the retro aesthetics in the form of a pack of electric batteries shaped like the air-cooled V-Twin engines symbolic of the track racing of that time. The custom build doesn’t end there as the racer gets a nostalgic number plate, a tank sandwiched between the bike frame’s dual top tubes, and a braced tractor-like seating embellished in brown leather. 

The Retio brings the antique 90’s essence of eye-catchy Nixie tubes and the golden appeal of radio listening for people who value retro things in their modern form. Handcrafted in San Francisco Bay Area with profound attention to detail, the radio clock is crafted from American black walnut. It’s embellished with 360 brass dials and corner trims to give it that cool steampunk appeal. The IN-12 Nixie tubes used in each one of these units are sourced from genuine vintage stock collected in the 90s. That single bit makes the Retio unique in its own rights. For audiophiles who appreciate sublime quality, Retio is the one to have in your living room or bedroom. That’s because it comes with support for AUX and Bluetooth connectivity with a Hi-Fi speaker module that is pure bliss for the ears.

If a vintage typewriter is gold, then LEGO vintage typewriter has to be an even better proposition. The icing on the cake is when your LEGO typewriter actually types, it’s just like the real thing. Another successfully backed LEGO Ideas project, this idea instantly evokes a sense of nostalgia and urges to own one. Designed by LEGO fanatic Steve Guinness, the LEGO set is called 21327 Typewriter – styled to bring back the memories of 50s typewriters. It doesn’t surprise that the LEGO typewriter is actually inspired by the original typewriter used by LEGO Group founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen. 

Here’s a camera that arguably does for the social-media generation what the Polaroid did for the generations before us. Inspired by Super 8, the Fragment 8 is a handheld camera that lets you record almost as if you were using Instagram filters. The camera mimics recording using 8mm film, giving your videos a uniquely vintage touch and features rotating, interchangeable lenses that add a variety of dreamy filters and bokeh to your videos. In a world that’s increasingly looking at new ways to capture the world around them, the Fragment 8 provides a retro-inspired way to record your life in a unique way… because the Fragment 8 captures images, videos… and even GIFs!

DIY Perks begins work on the system’s American walnut wood case. Using a Japanese saw blade, DIY Perks carves angled edges on the walnut wood to create a cubic frame. Before situating and locking the PS5 into place within the wood frame, DIY Perks etches holes for the USB cables to reach their port located inside the wooden frame, on the PS5 system itself. Leaning on the holes he previously carved into the carbon fiber base plate to mount it onto the wooden frame, both pieces easily merge with one another. Understated and sophisticated, the new case from DIY Perks doesn’t demand your attention like the original shiny metallic case, but the rustic elegance of the walnut wood blended with the durability of carbon fiber definitely keeps it.

To bring back nostalgic memories of the golden times where arcade games were all the rage, Casio has joined forces with Bandai Namco to create a timepiece that’s got a lot of history associated with it. In fact, Casio has revived the memories of their own classic watch from 1978 which was worn by Ellen Ripley and other characters in the movie Alien, back then. Yes, I’m talking about the F-100 digital watch that’s now got a Pak-Man influence in a big way thanks to this collaboration! It’s like a match made in heaven where two classics fuse to bring a modern-day timepiece to life in a playful design inspired by the world of arcade gaming.

This stackable + portable fiberglass table-chair combo takes convenience of home office to the garden

Working from home has helped abate long commutes and undue office distraction from our schedule, but it has eventually made us less social (if you know what I mean). Working alone at home, sitting by the same wall – no matter the congenial work environment you have tried to create – you’re still devoid of what’s going on beyond the zoom meetings and co-working software. Folding furniture has been the first choice for many professionals considering its space-saving functionality but stackable furniture with all-weather durability is going to outpace the former. Presenting a likable option in that space, industrial designer Gökçe Nafak has conceived the uuma portable table and chair combo, which is delivered in one stackable unit you can use in multiple setting both indoors and outdoors.

During the work from home regime, there may be times when you want to move to the balcony/garden and work while soaking in some sun. It seems easy with the choice of outdoor furniture, but if you have tried – you know – meeting the comfort of the workstation outside is not possible, and you end up cutting the adventure short, only to return to the more efficient work environment. With the umma the scenario is alterable. You can have a comfortable seat that can raise or lower on demand and can be clipped open to reveal a height-adjustable table. This table and chair can then be equally comfortable whether you choose to place it outside or inside in your home-office nook. This means, with uuma you can work wherever and whenever you can find the right motivation and creativity you need for your work.

This portable table and chair combo is made from fiberglass, which offers the unit its much-needed portability and durability. Fiberglass by virtue is a sustainable and pretty affordable material, it is also lightweight and robust in nature. The customizable furniture unit comprises four parts primarily that can be removed or put together with minimum know-how. The modular parts of the uuma include a height-adjustable metal leg – forming the central frame – and the lower and upper table layers.

Made in three bright colors to match the modern interiors, uuma comes strapped up in a nylon band, which can be clipped open to unveil the magic. With a subtle move, you can have a chair with a storage compartment, which when needed can be disassembled to deliver a table from within – a table and a chair combo was never so conveniently available!

Meet the Tesla Model-L, a cat tower with an in-built litter box and green moss for your pet to lounge in futuristic style!

Cat owners know how much their fur babies love towers. These big, sometimes not-so-tall structures benefit cats in several ways. First, they function as a play area and are ideal for scratching, climbing, and lounging. Second, since these appeal to a cat’s instincts, cat towers have gone through years of transformation now to reach a point where designers believe it’s a market big enough for Tesla to explore.

Before Elon Musk takes heed, designers Hyeonji Roh and Yeonhong Kim have conjured up the Model L – a cat tower named after the letter ‘L’ and is inspired by the cat’s tail. Drawing inspiration from the Tesla logo, which designers believe resembles a cat’s nose, this rather unusual cat tower has more to it than a traditional scratching post, perching slot, and a route to it. The Model L is pretty unique in the choice of material and finish. The glossy idea is rare for a product that usually utilizes wood and fabric. Nonetheless, it doesn’t let down on modernism. This tower with Tesla symbolism may not have the customary scratcher, but it gives your cat a high position to perch in when resting.

The design utilizes the entire top to bottom here. The top is where your pet will lounge. When nature calls, the middle section is designed for the pet to do their business, and the section at the bottom is terraformed to grow mosses, viewable through a transparent area in the middle. These mosses form a fascinating bright green carpet to replicate a natural environment for the cats. Given Elon Musk’s design of a flamethrower, I would say a rocket-inspired litter box is an idea that is entirely within the box! But it’s always fun to see the brand’s design approach inspiring designers to create unique products!

Designer: Hyeonji Roh and Yeonhong Kim



Compact, portable gas stove eliminates wire mesh, making it easy to clean after camping outdoors!

Camping is a great activity to venture out from your comfort zone into an environment that’s different. If your next awesome expedition is leading you to colder locations, it’s befitting to pack a portable gas stove along so the effect of temperature variation is minimized and you’re cozy irrespective of the weather outside the tent. Camping heater is a tried and tested domain where a range of manufactures have conceptualized their own variations. Once dependent on wood-fired stoves, the industry has evolved into portable gas stoves, yet design progress remains attainable.

A gas stove designed with motifs of a cart has been conceptualized by a Seoul-based designer to that accord. Dubbed “HAUL”, the minimalist gas stove is perceived in an inviting color combination, has a brilliant overall design, which relies on the convenience of portability and eliminates the metal mesh from the heating surface. The highlight of the HAUL, as the designer mentions is its neat design. The stove is redesigned sans “protruding wire mesh,” which is a disadvantage with conventional gas stoves. In addition, the compact heater is designed to be lightweight and has an integrated stable stand and a carry handle. The interesting red and white gas stove has a rotating knob on the top for temperature control and ignites the stove or turns it off when not required.

The gas heater comes with a simple clip-in gas canister that goes into its compartment at the back of the HAUL and is convenient to install and replace. We are not sure of what material the designer intends to deliver the gas stove in, but going by the design we are sure, it will ensure hassle-free installation and deliver instant heat to cozy up your tent or tiny house the moment you get it out of the car boot!
