The cozy heat emitting from your laptop can be put to better use with concepts like the Piece Battery.

It’s a very novel concept that requires a bit of refinement and technical support. Designers: Prof. Chai Chunlei, Zhang Kejun, Cheng Zirui, Jin Qi, Li Zhexin, Li Ziyao, M

There are people like my mom, who are freakishly particular of never sharing their glass or bottle of water with anyone. Their reasoning is that they don’t want to spread germs or take on anyone else’s either. Sounds reasonable and yet very annoying that I cant sip from her bottle, in case I’m really thirsty. The Touchin is a design that prevents the spread of germs because of the way it’s fitted to the neck of the bottle. It forces everyone to take a swig in a way that keeps away the actual li

Arctic Studio designed the Green Bean house for a family in Onsala, Sweden. From Arctic Studio The concept of the Green Bean house is a organic spiral motion in the internal organization of the spaces, both in plan and in section. This creates a fluent sequence of spaces that is contained in the simplicity of the box-shaped volume. In order to achieve minimal energy loss and take advantage of the sun radiation, the volume is open towards the south, closed to the north and wrapped in vege

Modern Brazilian homes keep popping up in a successful effort of permeating traditional culture. This particular home in Brazil is located in the city of Londrina, in the north of the state of Paraná, in Brazil’s South Region. Occupying a corner lot of a residential area, the modern structure is guarded by palm trees and was designed with privacy in mind.

I have experienced driving in foggy and rainy conditions and know the kind of danger it poses for tailing cars. Ideas like the Wipers LED Barricade Lights are innovative and can go on to prevent accidents. Most often, smaller cars just have to rely on their taillights and flasher to warn others behind them, so this wiper plus LED Display can reduce the risk of accidents. Great work!

Pitsou Kedem Architects have completed the design of a penthouse apartment in Tel Aviv, Israel. From the architects This is a small yet complex project of a duplex apartment renovation that was, for the architects, an especially challenging project. How would it be possible to install meaning and architectural values to a roof top apartment in a “standard” uninspired design multi-story building located amongst a row of similar structures in one of Tel Aviv’s bourgeois neighborhoods Th

Located on a spectacular shoreline terrain, on the island of Wight in England, the Welch House by The Manser Practice appears to float within the neighboring trees. The modern tree-house resembles a dark-colored box in lightweight steel and timber, offering subtle reflections of the surrounding landscape due to its high gloss enamel finish. Designed to have a small physical footprint on the ground, the residence is partially sustained by a compact tear-shaped concrete tube created on 30 meter

Why Every Man Needs A Man Cave

Posted by freshome 10 days ago (Editorial)

Every man should have the ultimate man cave. Image Source: Own By DesignSorry ladies, but this post is devoted to men (although, stick around for some great gender-neutral decorating inspiration). While both sexes need a place to escape; a place to call their own—the popular evolution of the man cave has blown away its competition (the sewing rooms, home libraries and craft rooms that most women dream of adding to their home take second place in this war of square footage).So all of us la

Public swimming pools can get messy and dirty during the summer months and maintaining them is quite a task. Typically water filtration is done best when the pool is empty, however concepts like this Water Filtration are intriguing and helpful. Individual capsules of filtration systems line the pool ropes and help clean the water constantly. Yes, you can swim with peace without having to worry about how many kids have pee-ed in the pool!

This luggage tray concept surely tops the ones I have seen long distance buses use. The entire tray pulls out and allows you to load the bags with ease. Next, you slide the tray back in and you’re ready to go. The difference actually is the ability of the tray to slide out completely and hold the weight of the bags thanks to the pull-down legs. A simple redesign that can work out well for the loader and his back! Relief from the strain! Designers: Choi Seungho, Han Jiyu, Jeon Minchang, Lim Hyun
