Spring Floor Clock

April 26, 2007

 

This 62-inch-high clock uses a pendulum on a spring to power itself, bouncing up and down and keeping time (or I assume so because it didn’t state the power input). The minimalist clock has an aluminum face and its stalk is made out of wood. USD198 for a piece.

Chrono Shredder

April 26, 2007

The Chrono_Shredder is a device that makes past time tangible. It is a hybrid between calendar, clock and waste producing automaton. It has no on/off-button, thus it is unstoppable, just like time. It features the 365 days of the year represented on a paper-roll. The paper-roll is led through a hacked paper-shredder, which is programmed to use exactly 24 hours to shred one “day”.

RE:MO – DIY FURNITURE

April 26, 2007

Taking the Japanese term “Sozo” meaning creation, the Osaka based company SOZ have brought a new meaning to the phrase “Do It Yourself”.  The furniture is constructed by assembling individual shapes into what you’d see lying around the house; a bookshelf, a magazine rack, a storage box or anything else that takes your fancy. 


The transformation is limited only by your creativity.

Sony NW-A808

April 26, 2007

The A808 has been designed with elegance in mind. The graphite-black matte finish is complimented by a stylish silver trimming (They got rid of the candy colours starting from Sony Ericsson Z610i for a more serious look). It’s ever so slightly smaller than the nano and weighs a mere 10g more, despite being capable of playing full-screen video. Screen size is important when you’re going to be watching video on a device, and the A808’s screen is a very attractive 2-inch 240 x 320-pixel color QVGA LCD screen.
