Ring Lamp - Tron Inspired Lamp by Loris Bottello

It’s obvious what inspired this. I want it. I want it bad. The TRON Lamp uses bioluminescent polymers to emit the kind of glow Hollywood spent millions of dollars in Special FX. Knife Locker by Min Seong Kim. Lock Thy Knife and Throw Away the Key Wait a minute there is no key involved here in the Knife Locker. Apparently the knife itself is the key.

This specific position is so that both children and adults can touch it conveniently in the darkness. Let me explain, at night if you don’t have the lights on, you usually reach out to feel for the walls to get your bearings and then move forward. Electromagnetic Paper Recycling System by Mohsen Saleh. Don’t Shred Your Paper – Disappear Your Ink!

Electromagnetic Paper Recycling System by Mohsen Saleh

Take a peek at this, paper shredder that doesn’t shred – this is the electromagnetic erasing system. The idea for this project came to the designer from observing the destructive effect of electromagnetic radiation on color pigments. Scary! This project aims directly at utilizing electromagnetic radiation in a fully controlled reaction inside a machine to break all bonds of color pigments that absorb only a particular range of the electromagnetic spectrum. What’s that mean? The designer notes that the only way this system would work would be to have those CMYK pigments that would be utilized in a way that their absorption band is different from the paper they’re printed on.

This one line says it all….moreover the cute switches create the desired impact of reminding us to conserve. I guess this is another angle to Product Design: to be instinctive without being preachy! The Smile Switches won a Liteon Award this year. Designers: Zhou Yide, Euphe Mo, Hang Zhou & Christine Liu. In & Out Door by Jeon Hwan Soo. Push-Pull; Tug Of War Is Over!

In & Out Door by Jeon Hwan Soo

Sticker industry may get a setback because their “Push” and “Pull” stickers may soon get redundant. The In & Out Door solves the problem of indicating push or pull on doors by making the door handle intuitive. On the “push” side, there is a flat panel and on the “pull” side there is a handle. Instinctively you know which side of the door opens which ways, and you get crowned as a super genius! Hold on, there is more to the working of this design and SADI (Samsung Art & Design Institute) student Jeon Hwan Soo explains his case quite effectively in his renders. Designer: Jeon Hwan Soo.
