This Adidas x Prada sailing-inspired shoe pushes the boundaries of innovation and sustainability!

I am not going to beat around the bush, this Adidas x Prada sailing shoe is a blueprint for a successful collaboration – a perfect balance between luxury and casual style! Designed for the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team, the A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 is a sustainable shoe that celebrates the sport of sailing while paying tribute to the new AC75 Luna Rossa boat and the iconic previous collaborations between the two brands.

The environmentally-conscious sneaker’s upper portion is made with 50% or more recycled and renewed technical materials thanks to the incorporation of Primegreen design which is a series of high-performance recycled materials complimented by a hydrophobic E-TPU outer shell to prevent water from penetrating the shoe. The innovative pair also has the Adidas trademark 360° ergonomic sockliner-free construction to reduce weight and maximizes flexibility. The details include the EVA tongue and suede interior saddle that showcase it’s sailing inspiration while a perforated BOOST midsole along with the wraparound outsole ensures complete freedom of movement and grip. The semi-transparent layer on the white colorway binds the shoe in water-resistant material with Prada’s famous red stripe on the heel with three subtle Adidas stripes on the side. An interesting detail were the laces – they are narrower at the bottom to help with speed lacing but wider at the top to help prevent tied knots from coming loose!

The A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 is minimal, sleek and performance-oriented, it is crafted to feel as comfortable as you would be barefoot while still being protective – it is a true blend of the brands’ technical prowess and design skills. The shoe drops on December 9 on Prada’s website, Adidas’ website, and Adidas flagship stores worldwide for $695 USD.

Carlo Ratti’s latest architectural feat is 8 tennis courts stacked in a 300ft tower!

Carlo Ratti has done it again with the Playscaper – a 300 ft tall tower that stacks eight tennis courts! In collaboration with Italo the ambitious concept makes tennis courts more accessible in urban areas where space is often an issue. What makes this more interesting is its flexible nature, Playscraper can be quickly assembled and disassembled which makes it easier to host competitions around the world while reducing construction costs and not requiring a large area.

Playscaper will provide 60,000 ft2 (5,500 m2) of total playing space with its vertically layered courts. The tower’s structure will be made using lightweight stainless-steel which is inspired by the outer shell of a spacecraft and developed by Broad Sustainable Building. “This project would not just create a new icon for sports lovers. It also experiments with a new type of public space, extending vertically instead of horizontally. The tower is easy to install and dismantle and can be easily moved. This flexible approach fits the circular nature of today’s sports competitions, which move from location to location throughout the year,” says architect and engineer Carlo Ratti, founder of CRA and director of the MIT Senseable City Lab.

Designed not just for the players on the court, the long sides of each ‘box’ incorporate an electronic façade that can stream sports matches and other digital content. While on the short sides, transparent walls offer panoramic views of the outdoors. The project has been developed for rcs sport, the sport and media branch of the leading European multimedia publishing group rcs mediagroup. Carlo Ratti Associati worked on the design as part of a larger team of engineers and technical consultants.

This ultimate bed doubles up as a couch and a WFH desk fitted with all the smart tech!

I have never wanted to use my position at Yanko Design to review products in person before seeing this bed. Pandemic or no pandemic, we can all agree that this is the ultimate bed just like its name states – the Hariana Tech Smart Ultimate Bed!

The $2800 price tag is justified with a myriad of features that make it perfect for a weekend in or even work from home – let’s be honest, they both feel the same right now. You now we always have to get up to get stuff before we settle into relax mode? Well, this bed was designed to have everything you will need to relax within your bed frame. It has an integrated reclining massage chair with a remote, a built-in Bluetooth speaker, a bookshelf, a reading lamp, an air cleaning system, an area to plug-in and charge your devices, a foot-stool that opens up for extra storage and a pop-up desk for the ultimate WFH setup, Netflix marathon or cozy reading hours. The sound system also features and SD card slot, an auxiliary port and a USB port. Another interesting detail about the Hariana bed is a password-protected safe box for you to store your most precious belongings – for me it would be my passport and snacks!

The Hariana Tech Smart Ultimate bed is something straight out of Spy Kids and I say that with utmost appreciation for both. The only thing I would add is a coffee maker so I can go from binge watching to office hours seamlessly.

This long-distance e-bike was built with an impressive range of 200 miles on a single charge

With a persona to match its name, the Juggernaut HD Duo was built to be pushed to the absolute limits. Touted as an “Extreme Performance E-bike”, Juggernaut HD Duo comes with a 1500W mid-drive motor and a whopping 2002Wh battery that gives it a top speed of 35mph, coupled with one of the highest ranges I’ve seen on an e-bike – 200 miles on a full charge.

Juggernaut HD Duo isn’t your average last-mile e-bike that lets you navigate within your neighborhood. It’s designed to be taken off the roads, traveling far beyond the borders of a city, and even going on intercity journeys if you’ve got it in you. The e-bike sports a rugged build with heavy-duty tires that work equally well on sand, snow, and gravel as they do on asphalt, which means you can take the Juggernaut HD Duo practically anywhere. Dual 910Wh batteries integrated within the bike’s frame give you nearly 100 miles of range, while an optional downtube battery sits on the outside, boosting your range to up to 200 miles… that’s about as much as traveling from New York to Philadelphia and back in a single battery charge.

The Juggernaut HD Duo’s incredibly hefty battery system is supported by a Bafang BBSHD mid-drive motor that’s capable of 160Nm of torque, a 10-speed Shimano Deore gearset, a cushy RST Guide suspension fork, and 180mm Tektro hydraulic disc brakes that help the bike conquer practically any type of terrain or incline while giving you a smooth ride. A Smart Pedal Assist Sensor measures your effort and gives you an extra push when you need it, while a thumb-controlled remote-pad and an LCD dashboard let you control and customize your ride while viewing your bike’s overall stats. Designed with an all-terrain experience in mind, the Juggernaut HD Duo comes with full-coverage fenders to keep you clean on muddy paths, and a storage rack on the back to help you carry gear with you. The e-bike comes outfitted with an integrated 100 lumens headlamp, although you can upgrade to a 2000 lumens lamp if you’re more of a night-rider. Built by Canada-based Biktrix (who’s portfolio features a wide range of e-bikes including All-Terrain, Commuter, Cruiser, and Folding eBikes), each Juggernaut HD Duo comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame (and a 1-year warranty on the battery and electronic components). The e-bikes are available in five stunning color variants, and ship as early as March 2021!

A designer made a slimmer, sleeker looking PlayStation 5 with a modern Discman vibe!

Could we, collectively as a species, agree on just one thing? The Playstation 5 pushes the hyper-organic design language a little too far. Objectively, even though it looks better than the Xbox Series X (yes I said it… I like my gaming console to look like a work of art, not like something out of Minecraft), if the guys at Sony dialed down the organic, free-spirited aesthetic, the PS5 could easily be a stellar-looking gaming console. Speaking of which, feast your eyes on this absolutely beautiful alternative design for the PS5 by Riccardo Breccia.

Breccia’s reinterpretation of the PS5 comes from the same place as those who criticize the company’s existing design… it scales the height down dramatically and makes it look less like an upright folder and more like a console, taking a page from the 1st generation Playstation’s design. Breccia’s PS5 sports a circular form that harks back to the circular shape that punctuated the design of the PS 1st gen. One much even draw parallels to the Walkman/Discman designs of the pre-iPod days. The PS5’s redesign is a lot wider than you’d expect, given the components that sit within. Breccia’s taken the liberty to even detail out where the inner parts would fit, along with a detachable upper-plate that reveals the fan below, along with an SSD expansion slot. The front of the console features a disc-slot right beneath the PS logo, along with a USB port for connecting/charging your controller. The remainder of the ports, including the Power Supply, Ethernet, and HDMI ports sit on the back, obscured from view.

Overall, Breccia’s PS5 design does a good job of reducing the original design’s shock-value. Breccia’s redesign is sensible and simple (like the Xbox Series X), but does take the liberty of playing around with interesting forms, curves, form-separation, color-separation, and CMF, resulting in a design that should somewhat please both the people who love the PS5’s audacious design, and the people who appreciate the Xbox Series X’s overt simplicity.

Snapmaker 2.0 is a desktop 3D Printer, Laser Engraver, CNC machine that lets you “Design From Home”

I’ve long said that this pandemic will push production in-house, and that’s precisely what the Snapmaker 2.0 hopes to do. In its second, more expansive, open, and fine-tuned iteration, the guys at Snapmaker have put together an absolute prototyping powerhouse that fits within a 3×3″ framework, and on a budget that’s about as much as your work laptop. The modular device can be built to run as a 3D Printer, a Laser Engraver/Cutter, and even a 3 or even 4 Axis CNC Machine. The Snapmaker 2.0 doesn’t just combine printing, engraving, machining into a single device, it scales it down to a budget-friendly consumer appliance that’s easy to use, and brings powerful fabrication tools right into your home, letting you prototype your own designs right at home, without dealing with external vendors, partnering with fab-labs, or stepping out to prototype your designs at the nearest workshop… all within a budget of roughly $1500.

The Snapmaker 2.0 builds on its predecessor’s ability to let you change modules and turn your 3D printer into a laser-engraver, a CNC carver, or even a 4-axis CNC lathe machine. In its second generation, however, the Snapmaker 2.0 boasts of a customizable assembly that lets you build exactly the fabricating tool you need, allowing you to expand or scale it down based on the size of your operation or your workspace, add a protective enclosure, or even modules like an IP Camera or an emergency kill-switch.

All of Snapmaker 2.0’s components come precisely machined from an anodized aluminum alloy, giving you a device that’s as robust as it is accurate. The machined components boast of incredibly low tolerances, resulting in precise outputs, and the Snapmaker 2.0’s own internal software like its automatic bed leveling system, or the camera that lets you preview laser-patterns and artwork before you etch them, just gives you the extra bit of control you need to create the kind of designs you’ve got in your mind. The Snapmaker 2.0’s frame and modules are ridiculously easy to assemble and disassemble, and its flexible design lets you build a machine that’s perfectly sized for your workspace, be it your bedroom, or your garage workshop. Moreover, Snapmaker’s native software guides you through the whole (incredibly simple) process. It provides a host of features that make it easy for novices (with relatively no skill or understanding of software) to operate it. The touchscreen interface on the Snapmaker 2.0 can alert you when the filament runs out during 3D printing (and even pause the build till you change it), while with CNC carving, Snapmaker 2.0 allows any consumer to easily switch between drill bits (a task that earlier required a CNC expert), and a camera beside the laser-engraving module even lets you accurately visualize your artwork on your product before you begin fabricating… so what you see, is exactly what you get. An auto-resume feature works exceptionally well if you’re in an area susceptible to power-outages. The device automatically pauses its processes when the power gets cut, allowing you to resume exactly where you left off when the power is restored, ensuring your final output isn’t affected in the process.

The device’s multifaceted approach to prototyping allows you to work not just with a variety of machining techniques but also with a wide range of materials. You can 3D print in a variety of plastic filaments, or CNC-machine materials like foam and wood, while laser-engraving on multiple mediums from paper to fabrics, leather, wood, plastic, and even composite materials. Designed for embracing creativity, the Snapmaker 2.0’s modules are easy to replace, and the machine automatically identifies the module you’ve plugged in, adjusting the touchscreen interface to match.

The Snapmaker 2.0 is running a special discount for YD readers, with an extra $50 off on their current Black Friday deal. Go ahead! You can literally build your own production line in your home… or better still, design your own holiday gifts!

Similarly to a smartphone, this 5-inch (720 x 1280 pixels) movable touchscreen is equipped with a Quad Core A7 CPU @1.1GHz, running under Android OS. providing a smooth and fast interface.

Power-loss Recovery

You don’t have to worry about power outages anymore. Snapmaker 2.0 can automatically detect power-loss, and then resumes exactly where it left off. You can recover any project and get perfect printing/engraving/cutting/carving results all the time.

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.

Flexible Platform

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 Engraving

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.

Dust Resistance

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.

This luxury Whiskey Glass has a drink-cooling scale-down model of Mt. Everest at its base!

I quite literally mean it when I say that the Everest Whiskey Glass is at the pinnacle of fine-spirit drinkware. Designed to elevate your drinking experience, the luxury glass comes with a 1:230,000 model of Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world. The mountain comes modeled right into the base of the glass, shimmering through your spirit just like a rock of clear ice would, but it does MUCH more than add to the visual element of your drink… let’s literally and figuratively dive in!

The Everest Whiskey Glass comes as a collaboration between Liiton and award-winning designer Nina Brunn, who’s work has earned her a Red Dot Design Award and representation in the permanent collection at the Museum of Arts and Design. The Mt. Everest replica at the base is true-to-scale, capturing the beauty and the grandeur of the tall mountain, while it punctuates your drink with its shimmering elegance. Its presence serves as an ice-breaker (pun intended) while helping aerate your spirit, and even allowing you to measure your drinks against the mountain’s ascent. The height of the mountain helps you measure out your drinks – pouring your alcohol till Everest’s basecamp gives you roughly 1.5oz, while going till Camp B measures 3oz. Pour your drink all the way to Everest’s summit and you’ve effectively got 4.5oz of spirit, which you can then either drink neat, or top off with water or ice… although that’s where Everest’s next feature comes in.

The base of the Everest glass comes embedded with its proprietary Chill Charge System™, which lets the decorative mountain also function as a whiskey-stone. Just store the Everest glass in the freezer and take it out before a drink, and its unique property allows it to effectively and evenly chill your drink in under 20 seconds without watering it down the way ice would, or coming in the way of your drinking experience, like whiskey stones would.

The luxury whiskey glasses come in a set of 4, with an optional Everest decanter to preserve and serve your eclectic spirits. The glasses work wonderfully with a variety of liquors, be it whiskey, scotch, single-malt, rum, brandy, or even cocktails and aperitifs that you’d normally served in whiskey-glasses. Each glass set comes meticulously wrapped in a gifting box too, making it great for if you’re treating yourself to an early Christmas, or gifting a loved one a truly high-quality drinking experience, that too with the highest summit on Earth!

This 496 million dollar project upgrades the Shenzhen Natural History Museum to an architectural river!

The new Shenzhen Natural History Museum is going to be designed by the winners of an international competition that attracted more than 70 proposals from around the world. The winning team includes 3XN, B+H architects, and Zhubo Design. The museum will be on the list of Shenzhen’s ‘Ten Cultural Facilities of the New Era’ and it is the first large-scale comprehensive natural museum in Southern China. The museum will be a world-class natural science site dedicated to interpreting the laws of evolution, showing the geographies of Shenzhen and its ecology from a global perspective while actively advocating science.

The ambitious structure is called ‘Delta’ after the Pearl River Delta and is designed to rise seamlessly from the river with an accessible green rooftop for visitors to soak in the natural setting. The roof is a public park that showcases organic geometries in the form of architecture. The dynamic shape has been inspired by a river stream that has a new view, a new bend, a new discovery at every turn. Similarly, the museum too will have different views at every turn overlooking the surrounding park, hills, and lake from the winding terraces. A news article published in March reported that the total investment in the project was to be $496 million and that excludes the cost of acquiring a wide range of specimens—animals, plants, minerals, and fossils—that will be on display throughout over 365,000 square feet of exhibition-dedicated space.

The unique flow-y form leads guests from the lush gardens to a ‘cave’ inspired passage that is connected to the museum lobby, multiple cafes, and other indoor common areas. Apart from learning about natural history and science, the building is also a community hub that encourages residents to make the most of the rooftop park and outdoor activities. The 42,000 square meter facility will be set up right next to the picturesque Yanzi lake in the Pingshan district of Shenzhen, and beautifully blends function, concept, structure, and material with the space it is in – fitting for a building dedicated to the laws of nature!

Bobby Berk would approve of this modular, wooden cabinet inspired by the phases of the moon!

I love modular, easy-to-assemble furniture that is designed to adapt to your space – big or small. Right now IKEA is the biggest player in this arena but if you dig a little deeper (or just follow Yanko Design, we do the digging for you) then you will find gems like the MOON cabinet – Bobby Berk will 100% approve of this!

This timeless looking piece is crafted from solid wood finished off with rounded corners that give it an organic form. “We got the three elements from deconstructing traditional wooden cabinets and immovable system furniture,” says award-winning furniture designer Chuang. MOON allows the user to have a flexible lifestyle as this one cabinet serves many different purposes thanks to its modular build. You can combine, assemble, and deconstruct it to fit your space or transform it from storage to seating. Just like the phases of the moon, the shape of this cabinet changes to fit different needs – in fact, it has a little circular cutout detail to symbolize that. I love that you can stack it up or take it apart to change the height of the piece as a whole.

It has open storage, cabinet doors as well as closed drawers so you really get every type of compact storage solution in one single furniture design. When not being used for storage, it can serve as a seat and a table too because it has been constructed to bear human weight! MOON is an evergreen, universal, and functional furniture design that maximizes flexibility through minimalism.
