Product design

Idea power

A "simple" creative concept for a very clever low-tech (and humorous) product design. See more FacePots in the designboom story.  

A well executed minimalist design idea with a sense of humor

I love the simplicity of this elegantly minimalist design concept. Developed by Korean Studiooo Factory it has a very playful Asian sensibility. Based on the concept of looking at mobile devices as pets that stay with you wherever you go. This concept adds a touch of life to an otherwise rather cold device. It somehow humanizes it, makes it fun and makes you feel even closer to your mobile, if that's even possible. The branding and packaging implementation carries very well the brand personality without losing its sense of humor.  You can see more pictures and buy your Mobile Tail here.  

Look, no hands. The Ziiiro Gravity + Mercury watches

Is this a good example of design for design sake? of beauty just because is fun, gives us pleasure and make us feel good? yes, yes and yes. So what about ease of use and functionality? well, this Ziiiiro watches maybe lacking a bit on that end but still in my opinion there is a place for plain design beauty. What do you think? Is this a good example of design for design sake? of beauty just because is fun, gives us pleasure and make us feel good? yes, yes and yes. So what about ease of use and functionality?
