Unpredictable stairs

What is it?

This is just a stairs in the New York subway. But not realy a normal one. One of the steps is a littlebit higher then all the other one. That means that you get this:

Why is it cool?

This is cool, because with this stairs the maker wants to show people that they have to be alert every second of the day. Nothing is what you think it is.

This is a cool example for the urban nomads, because they don’t want rhythm in their lives. They travel a lot by subway and think that every subway and every stairs is the same. This stairs wants to surprise them by making the predictable unpredictable.

durable cans

What is it?

‘’Do you know that there are 131 billion cans produces in United States alone every year?’’ 50% of those canse are recycled, so the other 65,5 billion cans we simply toss them into the trash. DesignNobis designed a smart, simple and different way to re-use your cans. It’s a cap for aluminium can so you can re-use your empty can to keep things like sugar, pepper, salt, cheese, oil etcetera. So with this design you can transform your used can into a functional and fun everyday object.

Why is it cool?

This is cool, because instead of making something huge or expensive like a car or house durable, they made something simple as a can durable. Now a day you see durability everywhere. But this is a new way of durability, because now you can re-use it, but it become a whole new product. So, from something simple you can make a new functional product.

Terugblik op de sector ‘appearance’

Appearance

Het blok ‘appearance’, de reden waarom ik deze opleiding heb gekozen. Eindelijk begon dit blok!

Dit keer moesten we geen trendrapport schrijven of conceptversterking uitwerken, we moesten een event gaan organiseren. Aan de ene kant vond ik dit wel een beetje jammer, omdat ik zo niet in contact kwam met een externe opdrachtgever zodat ik kon leren hoe zo een bedrijf te werk gaat. Maar een event organiseren leek me toch ook wel ontzettend leuk!

Voor school moesten we een event organiseren om meer jongens naar de opleiding te trekken. Mijn eerste gedachte was: en dat wil je met een ‘appearance- event’ gaan doen? No way dat dat gaat lukken.

Het eerste jaar werd gesplitst in twee groepen, de een moest zich gaan richten op meisjes, de ander op jongens. Zo kreeg je allerlei verschillende stands die gericht waren op meisjes, en stand die gericht waren op jongens. Wat hieruit bleek is dat de groepjes gericht op jongens helemaal geen stand hadden met ‘mode, make-up of iets waar je gelijk aan denkt als je aan de sector appearance denkt. Het gaat veel verder dan dat.

Ik, samen met mijn groepje, moest me richten op de meisjes en dit is heel goed gelukt, want wij hadden de publieksprijs gewonnen!

Ook zijn we een dagje naar de modestad geweest: Antwerpen! Hier zijn we eerst naar het modemuseum geweest en hebben we een tentoonstelling van Walter van Beirendonck mogen zien.Daarna mochten we zelf rondlopen en gaan zoeken naar leuke winkeltjes.

Na deze vijf weken die helemaal centraal stonden in de sector appearance denk ik nog steeds dat dit echt mijn sector is waar ik me in wil gaan specialiseren. Maar ik heb nog drie sectoren te gaan, dus wie weet verander ik nog wel van gedachten!

Guitar Pee

What is it?

In most bars going to the toilet isn’t that much fun. You just do your thing and go back to the bar. This new ‘’Guitar Pee’’, designed by the Brazilian Agency AlmapBBDO, makes peeing a whole new experience. When a men goes to the toilet, he becomes the new Jimi Hendrix for a minute. Therefore they just have to pee on the strings in the toilet.

Why is it cool?

This is cool, because they made of something simple as peeing, a whole new experience. Now a day a lot of people need an experience to be impressed by something. An amusement park has to be an experience, going to the movie, vacation etcetera. This design agency took it to another level, by give something simple an experience.

The coffee illusion

What is it? 

This is a notebook created by a design company in Hong Kong ‘Daycraft’, who claimed to have the first pre-stained notebook. It’s a notebook like every other notebook, but it looks like you spilled some coffee over it. The idea is to create the illusion of productivity and hard work in any office environment.

The notebook is available in white or brown cover. They cost about $15 each. You can say that is a small price to let your boss think you worked very hard and being a valuable member of the company.

Why is it cool?

This is cool for the urban nomads (working travellers, who travel between big cities and are always up for a challenge). Urban nomads don’t work in an office from 9 to 5. They like to work in a cafe or coffee corner. With this notebook they can tell their boss they worked so hard in the cafe, but that they spilled their coffee all over their work.

Automatic bed

What is it?

You know the feeling of getting up real early, in a rush, no time for anything else but taking a shower and having breakfast and then your mother attends you to make up your bed? With this bed you don’t have to worry about that anymore. This bed does this automatically.

Why is it cool?
This is cool, because now a day everybody is in a rush. People have to be in time for work, school or the bus. Because of this, a lot of people forget to make up their bed.

Do you think this is a brilliant idea? Or is it unnecessary?
