Jinyoung Choi's Housewares-esque Multi-Tool

(8 years ago)
If the Swiss Army had a housewares division, they'd carry something like Jinyoung Choi's brilliant Coral Tools device. The caltrop-like object contains screwdrivers both flathead and Phillips, a corkscrew and a "hammer head" that steadies a nail for the initial driving strikes. Well-placed icons let you know which tool is in which "finger."(more...)

Kawamura Ganjavian's "Ductpan" Neatly Collects Three-Hole Punch Confetti, Other Things

(8 years ago)
A month ago (to the day), we saw the fanciful side of Kawamura Ganjavian, with their "Ostrich" pillow design. In the meantime, they've largely been focusing on the architectural half of their design practice, including a handful of entries for building projects in Switzerland, but they continue to dabble in product design, as in their new project "Ductpan."DUCTPAN is not a standard dustpan; it includes an ingenious funnel duct to simplify the process of emptying it outIt's the sort of thing that must have been thought up before, yet I can't seem to find any other examples of this sort of dustpan design—it might be the biggest innovation in dustpan design was the clip-in handle for the brush. (In fact, it looks like that brush might fit in the pan as well...)In any case, it's a nice example of functionality + minimalism (and yet another curveball to Gizmodo, who didn't bite on my last lob...(more...)

(8 years ago)
In anticipation of Device Design Day 2011, we've partnered with Kicker Studio to bring you a series where speakers from this year's conference reflect on six questions about design and their practice. D3 brings together visual, interaction and industrial designers for a multi-disciplinary conversation about the design of consumer electronics and objects with embedded technology.This is our third installment of "Six Questions" with the speakers from this year's Device Design Day! We're excited to share some of Mike Kruzeniski's thoughts on being "just" a designer, the importance of storytelling and his love for the Nokia 3310.Mike Kruzeniski is a Design Lead on the Windows Phone design studio in Redmond. Before joining Microsoft, Mike worked at the Design Strategic Projects studio at Nokia Design in Los Angeles. His focus has been on pushing the boundaries of mobile experience, exploring the language and cultural roles of user interface, and methods for taking product concepts to production. p.s. Read responses from NASA's Cori Schauer and NONOBJECT's Branko Lukic for more insight on this year's conference!Kicker Studio: What is the most cherished product in your life? Why?Mike Kruzeniski: This is one of those questions that you feel like you're supposed to have an answer to, but nothing comes strongly to mind. Maybe I'm stuck on the word "cherished." I do have a lot of products that I really like. Some that I might even say I love, in that way the word love gets thrown[..]

Lucid Seating: "Butterfly Chair" by Laurie Beckerman

(8 years ago)
We've been fans of Laurie Beckerman's playful contemporary renditions on high modern furniture design for a few years now, since we saw her apostrophe-shaped "Tete-à-Tete" rocker. The Brooklyn-based designer has a knack for expressing geometric principles in compelling final product, and her latest piece, the "Butterfly Chair," is no exception.The Butterfly Chair is inspired by the ethereal beauty of lucite. The sheer form of a butterfly is created with simplicity and harmony of proportion. The wings organically grow out of the circular seat, giving the appearance of a chair about to take flight.(more...)

Narrow Down Your Tool Collection, and Build a Tool Chest, Using "The Anarachist's Toolbox"

(8 years ago)
The summer reading I've been waiting for is nearly here. The Anarchist's Tool Chest, by woodworker/blogger Christopher Schwarz, is a 480-page treatise on how virtually anything can be built from wood using less than 50 tools. "The Anarchist's Tool Chest," paints a world where woodworking tools are at the center of an ethical life filled with creating furniture that will last for generations. It makes the case that you can build almost anything with a kit of less than 50 high-quality tools, and it shows you how to select real working tools, regardless of their vintage or brand name.The book also contains a tutorial—based on designs from the 18th Century, no less—on how you can use those very tools to build your own tool chest to hold them all.Publisher Lost Art Press is estimating an availability time of one to two weeks, and you can order the book here.(more...)
