A lot of care and curation goes into the outfit you wear everyday.
Growing up, boys will try and be like their fathers, from emulating the way they walk, through to copying how they sit… and now they can even ride the same bicycles! This eye-catching duo is the Banana 88 bicycles, and whilst almost-identical in form, their function and scale are most certainly different! Naturally, the larger of the two is targeted towards adults; packed into the attention-stealing, yet the friendly, design is an electric motor that propels the user around in an eerily-silent fashion. When it comes to transporting or storing the scooter, its unique form folds up into a compact package, making it ideal for being placed in the car! The second member of the pair is significantly smaller and does away with the electric motor. Instead, this variant is a balance bike aimed to introduce children into the world of bicycles! The rounded, approachable form makes for a friendly product, and one which ties the two products together, perfectly!

Outwardly, the Getaway Duffle by Articulate looks like any other duffle bag, but take a closer look and you’ll notice that its classic styling hides a whole slew of features that make the Getaway a modern classic. For starters, its wax-coated canvas cladding and YKK zippers ensure that the Getaway adheres to the highest levels of durability, and can withstand rough use as well as rough weather.
Carbon Fiber lends a very different set of features to a guitar. Aside from making it practically unbreakable and possibly quadrupling its lifespan, it lends a unique timbre to the guitar.
Yoo Eunsook’s idea for an ATM solves both aesthetic and functional problems. The aesthetic problem is that ATMs are usually clunky, bulky machines that sit outside shops or in ATM kiosks. This creates a visual eyesore while also leading to a functional problem.
Simplicity doesn’t have to mean boring, and the Post Lamp is an excellent example of this.
Despite being a fundamental accessory for dog-owners, the extendable lead still carries significant flaws that impede on the safety of both the dog owner and their four-legged friend. Amble and its series of safety-addressing features offer a solution to these issues, whilst also carrying a form that elevates the appearance of what is conventionally a rather mundane product. Amble increases safety by encouraging the user to be more engaged and aware of the location of their dog; a revised braking system operates in the opposite way to a conventional lead, as squeezing the trigger releases the break and forces the owner to be aware of where the dog is traveling

When it comes to riding a bicycle, it’s important to be aware of ALL your surroundings… even things that aren’t in your peripheral vision. With some countries not having dedicated bike lanes, it makes absolute sense to keep an eye on the road and the obstacles ahead of you, but also on vehicles that are approaching you
We usually have a tendency to take things for granted, until someone proves us wrong. I guess I’d never look at a spatula and go, maybe this could be better than what it currently is, but somewhere, a designer saw potential in uplifting the spatula to make it much more functional and useful than it currently is.
