Na dzieciństwo nigdy nie jest za późno [wideo]

Inni muszą czekać aż do emerytury, aby móc bawić się jak na szalonego staruszka przystało.

Jewelry. Recycle. Interior. Shipping Eco-Friendly Products in Mulfunctional Packages. This is a beautifully simple example of brilliant green packaging design.

Shipping Eco-Friendly Products in Mulfunctional Packages

It solves three common product design problems at once by (1) providing sturdier packaging for shipping shirts, (2) making it easy to recycle and (the best part) (3) having it transform into something sustainable, reusable and useful that works with the object in the package. The unassuming exterior of the so-called HangerPak looks conventional enough, with curved-and-folded ends to keep the inside wares from crumpling. Exo. MECH. Boat.

Materials. Light-Up Door Handles Illuminate Entries and Exits. There are the quite direct light-up door handles that illuminate and look like light bulbs, but there are also color-changing ones that shift to indicate occupancy (green for empty and red for full) or car door handles that illuminate upon touch to help you open them at night.

Light-Up Door Handles Illuminate Entries and Exits

Whatever the application, these can be clever ways to find the nearest entrance or exit in the dark, to communicate something to an occupant or visitor or simply to add another easy-to-spot light source that could be triggered by a switch or a simple turn of the handle. Hands-Free Door Opener Beats Bathroom Handles & Knobs. No one wants to talk about it, but there is something odd about leaving public (perhaps even private) bathrooms by way of a grab-and-twist knob, handle or other hand-held object.

Hands-Free Door Opener Beats Bathroom Handles & Knobs

The solution is simple, safe and sanitary, but still rarely implemented. Toeopener has a nice ring to it, and speaks to its functionality as well as the photos or videos – simply use your foot instead of your hands. This plastic-bumpered metal bar screws into place, making installation (and removal) easy as well. If it sounds awkward, well, it does not look particularly uncomfortable in practice.

The catch is that it may not be particularly friendly to disabled or elderly persons – this drawback can be offset by including the same grips we all know to expect at arm level, regardless.

Boat. Drone. Pillow Mace. Ad. Design. Building. Minarc's RUBBiSH sink, made from old tires. I have to recaulk my bathroom sink, an infuriatingly small-bowled object that splashes water everywhere yet is astonishingly heavy.

Minarc's RUBBiSH sink, made from old tires

It's a solid chunk of porcelain that doesn't deliver good functionality for the amount of matter it consists of, and I dread having to pull it off the wall cleat so I can scrape off the bad original caulking job, which was apparently done while the contractor was having a seizure. QuaDror, a New Structural Joint to Build On. Posted by Robert Blinn | 23 Feb 2011 | Comments (8) Core77 had the opportunity to be invited into Dror Benshetrit's Studios to take a glimpse at QuaDror, his new structural joint.

QuaDror, a New Structural Joint to Build On

QuaDror is a lap joint construction that provides for limited freedom of movement without the use of a traditional pin. The design is elegant enough to prompt wonderment that it hasn't already been built in the world, even as forgotten carpentry. By superimposing two lap joint frames with miter cuts, Dror makes the formation of a collapsible structure possible. Once a load is applied to the top of the two frames, it spreads out to an optimal angle for load distribution. Just unveiled at the Design Indaba conference in Cape Town South Africa, Dror sees a future where his joint could be used in everything from modular housing to wind absorbing highway barriers.

Spin Space: 360-Degree Room with Zero-Gravity Furniture. Gravity is a possible, but not necessary, starting point for the design of every structure and object we occupy or use.

Spin Space: 360-Degree Room with Zero-Gravity Furniture

What if we stripped away this assumption and began shaping space that can work from any perspective and at any angle? Bureau Spectacular created this incredible installation that turns what we know about up and down sideways, spinning it around at increments to create a fully circular experience of space. It completes a full rotation once per hour, forcing occupants to keep up or get out. Floors have to work as walls, ceilings as floors, and any built-ins serve some potential purpose with each incremental turn. While not the same as a true experience of outer space, it starts to suggest ways that designers could work with otherworldly problems … and perhaps add new dimensions to terrestrial design projects, too. Beagle by Leo Chao. A Hood That Will Make All The Difference Blockbuster Hollywood movies can bring on the spotlight to lesser know disease and medical conditions.

For example, After Rain Man we all knew what Autism was. That story told us how autistic people suffer from impaired social interaction and communication. In children the condition is heightened with sensory disorders and even minor noises can disturb them. A recent research suggests that stimulants like music, aromatherapy, and textured toys can help alleviate the condition. Designer: Leo Chao. DIY Garden & Deck Furniture: Grow a Natural Wood Chair. For those who like laying back in the garden and leaning against a sturdy tree or bush while quietly reading a book, this grow-it-yourself natural wood furniture concept might readily take root in your imagination. Best of all, you can watch while your favorite new seat grows right up from the ground in your own backyard or from a pot on the patio or porch. While the growing framework does not require growth to make it work, the insides of the chair (designed by Michel Bussien) evolve right before your eyes.

In short, this is more about the pleasure of gardening and change over time than it is about a practical seat design. Roll & Grow Gardening: Great DIY Vegetable Garden Idea. Growing a garden has never been easier, complete with vegetables no less. For those of us who are DIY types but do not know the first thing about gardening (or how to grow anything inside either), this roll-out all-in-one pre-planted garden for beginners is perfect. DIY Sound System: Grow Your Own Stereo Speakers. Practical or not, when you make something yourself for your it adds a layer of engagement with your environment, interactivity with your own interior spaces. These do-it-yourself speakers may not be functional but they sure are funky. The idea here by Jocko Chan is simple: as the bamboo grows, so does the quality of your sound system – piped up through the stalks and into the room.

In reality, bigger is not always better and organic means unpredictable – not a good thing to tell an audiophile. As eco-friendly everyday design goes, though, it is hard to say with this is sustainable or foolhardy. Aside from the proximity of water to your power base, the acoustics of this scheme are also hard to fathom. Upcycled Furniture: Creative Chopstick Stool Design. Steamer trays and wooden chopsticks are some of the most ubiquitous trash objects in China – and are thus the perfect candidates to upcycle into something useful and durable at the ends of their short and eventual first lives, like this simple (but also functional and comfortable) wood stool design by B.A.S.E. While it might look utilitarian at first glance, this hybrid upcycled object is more crafty and comfortable that it initially appears.

Colorful Rugs Become Artistic Interior Centerpieces. Too often, area rugs and mats are more an afterthought than a serious design consideration when decorating the interior of a home. Paired in these images with perhaps too-perfect living and other room designs, these Henzel rugs take center stage in each featured composition. Of course, finding furniture and artwork to do justice to these pieces might be tough at times. Black Labels, Bright Lights: 5 DIY Wine Bottle Lamp Projects. Admire the label art, open the bottle, drink the wine, put a stopper in, then consume the rest later … and then what? While a true collector might still keep the empty glass around, most of us then dispose of the leftover container and move on. Here are some illuminating reasons to think twice before recycling them right away. (Instructions for the above DIY outdoor wine bottle wooden-wall torch at Design Sponge). More than decor, candles can add nice mood lighting to a space – particularly when filtered through dark greens and browns of a glass wine bottle.

DIY Area Rug + LED Floor Lamp = Bright White Carpet Light. A glowing, light-up carpet? It sounds either kitsch or futuristic, but somehow this unique hand-crafted hybrid rug-and-lighting element manages to put a clever and creative spin on a cozy and conventional home furnishing object – a great do-it-yourself project idea for people wanting to bring a little more light into their living room layout.

A simple strand of LED rope lights sits inside a knit pattern of regular ropes, spiraling out from the center. Johanna Hyrkas needed no special skills, knowledge or tools – simply a novel DIY idea for integrating two easily-manipulated everyday materials. This very basic craft object explores added functionality to what we take for granted – rugs, mats and carpets constantly underfoot. Tiny 3D Tile Topography: Colorful Foam Landscape Carpet. Hanging map textiles and geographic rugs can add rich decorative touches to a space, but the form and materiality rarely reflect the topography they represent.
