Though its still a concept design, the moolEdge will revolutionize the way we toast the future.

From Fredrik Roijs Square series, the Square Chair is a combination of different shaped wood to form fully-functional furniture with an unusual design. It can be compared to Gerrit Thomas Rietvelds Berlin Chair but with a more modernist approach.
Samsung Proxima is a revolutionary concept by Johan Loekito, an Industrial Design graduate. Its a wristwatch and mobile phone in one with a sensor. The built-in sensor will sound an alarm should the phone go beyond the limited proximity, hence, the tagline, Never lose your phone again.

A charming eye-catcher, the Asterisco Hub is the perfect example of function-ality by design. USB ports in devices such as laptops and desktops often have very little space between each other, making it very hard for the user to plug multiple USB devices at the same time. By producing a USB hub with multiple output slots in the charming figure of an asterisk, the usage of a single slot is maximized without the use of messy and tacky wires. It comes in bright hues of red, purple, green and blue.
Minimal but not plain, Circle Lamps design merges function and art. The Circle Lamp is an award-winning craft of Swedish designer Monica Frster for Italian brand De Padua. Its clever design can surprisingly blend with any interiors of your room.
Made from iron and aluminum, its lamp post forms an arc that gives the lamp more room to lighten up the area, and the merging of the post to the base is simply seamless. The shade is similar to a crowned hat that tops this glorious masterpiece of a floor lamp. This floor lamp uses an energy-efficient fluorescent light that brightens up the room as much as 150W incandescent light would do. Now seeing one of these in any modern house is a bright idea.

Whoever said that time is gold havent seen Attritos black and blue elegance.
Synchronizing time and design is what Attrito digital clock aims for. Attrito, friction in Italian, consists of two bars which hang parallel to each other. Its digital time display uses a cutting-edge machining process which is also used in Apple Macbooks. This allows the numbers to be invisible until they pass over the LED in the correct position. The clock poles then display the hours on the left bar, while the one on the right counts the minutes of each hour in increments of five. The two LEDs synchronize together to ease the transition from one number to the next. While one number is dimmer, the other is bright and bold and they switch at the precise moment the time changes. I bet you didnt get all of that, did you?
Blame the designer Shane Roepe for giving us such elegant looking digital clock. Now, well never see time the same way again.
