Classical Soup Serving Dish Gets New Shape as Sphere Tureen

The Sphere Tureen concept has been designed to bring a revolutionary change in the design of tureen, a classical dish that is being used for serving soup, by giving them a modern and eye-catching look. Basically, the design was inspired to give the soup dish the shape of a perfect sphere with lot more efficiency than the traditional one. Therefore, a cap has been integrated with a rail mechanism that allows the cap to be opened by sliding. To ensure convenient carrying, it comprises two handles on both sides which along with the three-way raised base give it an impression like the fairy humpty-dumpty.

Superloop Intersection for Self-Driving Cars by Atis Sedlenieks

Superloop has been designed as part as competition project for Tallinn Architecture Biennale “Self-Driven City”. The project was awarded honorable mention.

This proposal is intended for time when autonomous cars will be 100% main city transportation. What will that mean for city streets and intersections?

Time is most valuable unit and humankind always are longed for doing most in less time. The goal to “travel to destination faster” is one of the main drive reasons for transport infrastructure evolution. Horses, bicycles, trains, cars, aircrafts etc. The efforts to reach this goal will guide the development of the technology and the city also in the times to come. Autonomous cars definitely will solve the more productive use of travel time itself, but this time after all won’t solve the base goal – “travel to destination faster”. Cities and roads that are adapted to autonomous cars can help to reach this goal.

As there will be no human error there will be no or very high speed limit. Today speed limit on city roads varies from 30- 50km/h. With only autonomous cars on roads speed limit could be 150km/h. If speed limit is that high, the only thing stopping cars are intersections. Autonomous cars have to slow down taking turn because of centrifugal forces acting on vehicle. Tires don’t have enough grip and car simply slips out of the turn or flips over. This is where superelevation comes in when designing roads.
Our proposal is aiming for intersection solution concept that is as fast as possible. Concept that can be adapted and used in every intersection no matter how much traffic lanes are intersecting. In that way there is no traffic jams and for the first time city can narrow car roads leaving more space for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Dune Flatware Set by Andrea Ponti

Andrea Ponti, an Italian designer, has designed an aluminum flatware set called Dune. It’s a concept project inspired by the concept of food design meant as experimental cuisine and molecular gastronomy where a culinary research lab seeks to explore the technical, artistic, and social aspects of cooking. Every single element is essential when it comes to multi-sensory conception of food, from cooking spaces, utensils, to tableware and packaging.

Dune demonstrates experimental aspect of food design through both of its structure and materials. The traditional flatware collection has evolved into more modern “personal flatware set” with contemporary look and feel. It is constructed with aluminum that makes this flatware set ultra light and much sleeker compared to steel or titanium flatware. The anodized finishing makes it durable and easy to clean.

Dodecaplex Space Ecosystem – “Revamp the Future”

Gazing into space has always generated interest and longing in humans desiring to learn about it, to know it, and with each day that passes, we are closer than ever to realizing interplanetary travel. However, the arrival to other solar systems has always been curtailed because of distances and current space motor technology, sustaining our desire to discover new frontiers anchored to our home planet.

The Dodecaplex Space Ecosystem is a project conceived to solve the current needs for space exploration, focusing on: avoiding dependency on Earth’s resources, adaptation to new technologies, and maintaining life. The Spacecraft will act as a future place of residence and method of transportation to other planetary systems. Various concepts are utilized in the creation of such a complex and sophisticated platform for space living and transportation. Applying membranes as functional units, separating spaces, protecting the Station from the exterior, we will maintain life.

FastFocus Vital Signs Monitor by Bluelarix Designworks

This is a new vital signs monitor, based on IR reflection and acceleration measurements. Patients will wear the product 24 hours a day in hospital wards. The product can be worn behind the ear and detects the patients posture, activity and heartbeat rhythm, creating a total picture of the patient’s activities and intensity of movements during day and night.

The product is measuring every number of minutes and sends the data to a central server in the hospital. Every doctor and nurse has now access to the patient’s vital data. The doctor can adjust the threshold and range of the vital signs for every patient in order to be alarmed if needed. This helps doctors to make decisions regarding letting patients go home, or moving them from the intensive care to the normal wards, based on trend analyses, in stead of basing their decisions on a small talk with the patient and a handshake.

United Nude Lo Res Concept Car Is The Result of Lowering 3D Resolution of Lamborghini Countach

One of reasons United Nude won a 2016 Wallpaper Design Award was ignoring all standard rules of car design. United Nude Lo Res Concept Car is one of United Nude Lo Res project that started few years ago, it has become an important signature of the brand.

The method used here is based on the principle of re-designing the same object in a series. By lowering the 3D resolution, it results in a more fragmented and abstract design, each step of the way. The shape of this concept car came from lowering the 3D resolution of the iconic Lamborghini Countach designed by Marcello Gandini from early 70s. Lo Res car is completely a design experiment, it’s totally not your conventional car. The abstract appearance makes it look like a moving sculpture.
