Wednesday, August 14th, 2013 Tuesday, August 13th, 2013 New print release: This week marks the third print the Working Proof has released with artist Madame Lolina. It is pretty obvious that we think she is a unique talent with a flare for creating soft, meaningful works that lean into the world of fantasy and imagination. The print Crow Hat to benefit Kids In Need Foundation is no exception. I am in love with the black, white and grey pallet of this piece, contrasted by the figure’s soft pink lips.

Tic-tac-toe Coasters The X-mix coasters from Mocha.UK look like a stack of funky, colorful protectors for your tabletops. However, pop out the x’s and they reveal themselves as a dual purpose accessory. You can use them to play the classic game of tic-tac-toe or noughts and crosses as it is also known.

Ramus M1 Table/Desk by Design Studio Il Hoon Roh Ramus, latin for 'tree branch', combines the strengths of carbon fibre with the structural advantages that can be found in the branch of a tree. (Click the images below for full sized images) The Ramus M1 is a desk with a transparent glass top and a supporting structure underneath with tree-like limbs that support the top. Designer Il Hoon Roh claims the bifurcating structure maximises the table's structural capacity and strength. It's the latest development and creation in the designer's long-term study of efficient forms found in nature, a passion to design works with an architectural concept and "a natural method" that maximises a material's potential. The Ramus M1 is made of carbon fibre, the same material used in fighter jets, F1 cars and space shuttles.

40 Creative Package Designs They tell you not to judge a book by it’s cover, nor a fish by it’s scales. Usually they’re trying to get you to reserve judgment, despite poor something or someone’s poor appearance. Even so, the package a product comes in has a strong impact upon sales. Sure, you could just wrap a great product up in paper and twine, but you know it won’t sell as well. Removable Handles Alberto Vasquez for IDEA Groups When performing all sorts of complex operations in the kitchen it is important to have a set of safe instruments to work with in this fairly dangerous environment, surrounded by hot ovens and sizzling frying pans. The tools used need to be simple but with plenty of usability. This set of newly designed instruments by Alberto Vasquez has removable handles that are special made with refractory silicone material that can handle 300-400 Celsius which makes it okay to be place inside the oven. The red clip fixes the handle when it is closed, made in the same material but different color. The clip is styled so it’s easy for cleaning with water and detergent spray. There is a metal part inside the silicone to brace the handle, this metal part has concave incisions in its form therefore it won’t move in the silicone when you shake the pot.

Maybe you will be inspired too! See all past Friday Favorites here. I was looking online at Anthropolgie recently and came across the beautiful work of Carola van Dyke. Beautiful And Original Product Designs - Smashing Magazine Advertisement Successful product design manages to reveal useful functionality beyond its appealing form. No matter how excellent a design looks like, most customers aren’t likely to spend money on something they won’t be able to use. On the other hand, most people are likely to buy something useful despite the design it has. Yet the key to a truly successful product design lies in designer’s ability to combine both beautiful design and functionality making it obvious to the customers how the product can be used and which benefits it delivers.
