Say hello to Ammonite washbasin, a unique-shaped washbasin designed by HighTech. It is a concrete washbasin shaped as fossil which is inspired by the archaic beauty of ammonites. You can get this washbasin installed in your bathroom in widths between 90 cm and 30 cm with a depth of 56 cm. Not only this, there are many colors available for you with a table mounted or wall mounted tap. The mesmerizing shape of ammonite fossil resembles a rolled up corkscrew. The way water reaches to the bottom of the hole is just amazing. Wish all manufacturers can really be this creative with shape, really can’t wait to get it installed in my bathroom.
“Ammonites are an extinct species of cephalopods which lived in the sea about 400 million years ago. Their shells are found all over the world and they are very much sought-after by fossil-hunters, their collector’s value depending on size and the state of preservation. The fascinating shape of ammonite fossils – which resembles a rolled up helix – is the basic design element in the new HighTech washbasin. The association of water and fossil design is a clear allusion to the prehistoric inspiration for the Ammonite washbasin.”
Goldee today revealed the Goldee Light Controller – a reinvention of the light switch that redefines how people interact with light. Goldee translates information from your surroundings into smart functions that respond to your lighting needs.
Users will enjoy smart features such as the Sunrise Alarm, which simulates the morning sunrise to make your morning rise easier. Sleep Timer naturally fades your lights to prepare your body for a good night’s sleep. If you wake up in the middle of the night, Night Mode helps you to get around by automatically turning on dim light. When you return back to bed, Goldee turns it off again. Goldee automatically turns your lights off when you leave home and turns them on when you return. The Smart Security feature simulates your presence if Goldee notices you have been away from home for more than two days.
An innovative way of interacting with light has been applied. Thanks to Goldee’s responsiveness to gestures, you can now control your lights with a wave of your hand.
“Ever since the invention of the light bulb, not much has changed in the way people interact with light. Until now. Goldee forever changes how we interact with light, and how light interacts with us.” – Tomas Baran, CEO & Founder
Goldee installs like any standard light switch and is compatible with regular bulbs. However, in order to use Goldee’s colorful light scenes and smart features, smart LEDs like Philips hue, LIFX or iLumi should be used. In addition to the controller, Goldee offers package deals that include LIFX smart LEDs. The packages provide controllers and light bulbs for one or four rooms. Goldee Light Controller is propelling the revolution of intelligent lighting forward – a revolution that began with the introduction of smart LED bulbs by Philips and LIFX.
Tuvie has received “Goldee Light Controller” project from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
Another green car for Geneva Motor Show, here’s an amazing hydrogen powered car : the Morgan Life Car, stunning design and at the same time environmental friendly. I think 2008 will be filled with new design of green car technology, this Life Car is powered by an energy storage system composed of advanced fuel cells that will take you for 250 miles on a single tank of hydrogen. It is set to have a top speed of 100mph and will do 0 to 60mph in around 7 seconds. Looking forward to see “the real car” at the Geneva Motor Show 2008.
