from the website :: Aart Roelandt is fascinated by products made of material of one kind. The dish 'Stretch' is a good example. The starting point is a stainless steel disc that has been provided with slits made by a laser cutter. Total length of the slits is 8,75 yard. By pulling the edges of the disc upwards a dish arises. enjoy goods

I love it when people redesign objects whose design language has become so very very commonplace... What's even better is that this hammer seems to have all the earmarks of a superior product. In their words, "The Split-Head hammer offers many new features never seen before in the industry such as integrated overstrike plates, modular head construction, and elastomeric shockgaskets just to name a few." more info

I seem to have a thing for shoes these days, er... But I love the audacious simplicity of these forms, their construction method, the design concept and how the raw minimalism is made comfortable with the lightest touch of feminine detailing.

Ok...I don't talk about mass consumer products or packaging very often...it's usually no where near as dreamy as all of our concept cars and designer toys and such but I'm making an exception!!! With recent changes in materials and technology, the standard concepts in consumer packaging (and what consumers have come to expect from consumer packaging) have been undergoing serious shape-shifting... It's not enough for a product label to proudly & distinctively proclaim the features of, say, your favorite liquid soap NOR for the container also to be sexy AND efficient at holding your goo...In addition, the container has to...well...handle like it was born to do just what you desire it to do AND make you feel just like you want to feel. It's a tall order, the competition is tough and the price points are killer. Form & function, features & fashion all have to unite in perfect harmony. take a peek at these folks
They say that every problem is a design problem...Deborah Adler took this to heart in her work on her Master's Thesis -- the Clear RX project. Making sure you take the right medication, at the right time, in the right amount, with or not with the right combination of other things is a serious, albeit not glamorous, concern. Many kudos to Deborah to putting design to task and developing a solution. Kudos also to Target for supporting her and helping to make this real. read up
