For those of you that hate doing your laundry, here is your dream come true. The iBasket was designed by a chinese industrial design student (Guopeng Liang) for the Electrolux Design Lab competition. basically, when the things in this basket weigh a certain amount, the basket turns into a washing machine and washes what’s in it. The machine can be scheduled and/or controlled using your mobile or computer. It even sends you a text message as soon as your laundry is done! Genius, as long as you don’t mix up your colors ;p

Seymoupowell brings design to a table – from a baby’s point of view. The leading British design firm won numerous awards for this sleek chair. the design is minimal preventing clutter (the table also acts as a restraint instead of seat belts ) and looks fabulous! I like the round edges that prevents the accumulation of dirt, I can imagine how babies can get messy sometimes..

I am a big fan of vintage luggage, especially trunks. Actually I even like modern type trunks. I think they are very good looking, but yes they can be a bit impractical. I am looking for something to use as a decorative set for my place.

This website has a nice collection.

Poor Little fish

At this year’s London Design Festival, Yan Lu unveiled an interesting piece. The idea behind this to aware the public of their water consumption. Rather than forcing people to consume less, thus depressing the using experience, Yan Lu offered with hisĀ Poor Little Fish basin an emotional way to persuade consumers to think about saving water, by making consumption tangible. There is a traditional shaped fish bowl in the Poor Little Fish basin. While using, the level of water in the bowl gradually falls; it will go back to the same level once the water stops. Hence the consumer needs to consider the fish while using. Due to separated pipelines, the water that comes from the tap is pure and clean while the one in the bowl is not actually changing; no more water is wasted in this process.
