By looking at this new design no one even in their second thought would even make a wild guess that this device is related to computers. The name B- Membrane identifies an innovative design and idea. Designed by Korean Won-Seok Lee this has a concept of hybrid laptop or desktop. Its unique design eradicates the need of a monitor and is replaced by projector that is adjustable to develop into a captivating source of light environment. It has a touch screen keyboard which appears only when you are in need of it and the optical reader is perfectly incorporated into the design by sinuous lines. This device is definitely a mixture of functionality and style.
The new tea kettle by Juliet Symes brings the fun element to tea while admiring its aesthetics. This design marvel was designed with the idea of making tea as easy as 1 2 3 … without losing the ritual of it. The teapot has a spout through which the water is poured into the kettle when it is placed on top of the stove. The water comes to a boil before being taken off and adding the tea infuser in the spout. After infusing the tea leaves, the scoop comes with a holder and the tea pot can be used as a kettle. Truly a nice thought which will make tea making easy for the whole family!
Juliet says :
I wanted to make tea making easier without losing the ritual of it, so having one appliance functioning as two makes it easy to use but keeps the ritual alive.The Dusi tea kettle functions as both a kettle and a teapot. You simply boil water in the Dusi on a stovetop, take it off and insert the tea infuser. The infuser is shaped to scoop out tea leaves from the packet then fit neatly in the kettles spout. The infuser is left in the pot for as long as the user desires then taken out and into its holder provided, while the tea kettle is now used as a teapot to serve. The base is copper – the most conductive material for cookware, while the body is double-walled borosilicate glass, and the tea infuser/scoop and it’s holder are both thin stainless steel.From the start of this process I wanted the kettle to look like a teapot while it functioned as both. Its form was inspired by a Bauhaus teapot with a beautiful shape that I came across in my research, and after using a teapot with a side handle I knew I had to have that feature on my kettle. So Dusi is a real mixture of Bauhaus, cottage and 21st century styles but result in a smooth contemporary form.
If you are wondering how much this costs or how long you have to wait for its creation and delivery, i have to say, unfortunately this exotic beauty is not a prototype, nor it’s planned for production. The AMV-R, as the designer by the name of Alexei Mikhailov named it, is an unusual combination of styles. I say it’s unusual, because the supercar has both Italian and German design. This furious raging beast, has been given the pure Italian jaw-dropping fluid almost organic design and the German sporty design lines, which not only emphasizes the overall quality of the car but also make it unique in every aspect of the way. AMV-R stands for Auto Motive Visual Racing, so speaking in automotive terms, it’s a proper supercar. Visually, the overall design makes even the people from Greenpeace wish they drive it at least one lap on any closed circuit. The carbon fiber body shell, the aluminum chassis and the alloy wheels equipped with racing tires make the AMV-R as light as a feather.
The rear of the car reminds us of the Zonda. The exhaust pipes are positioned in the middle of the rear bumper. The “R” in the name is not there just for the sake of it, it stands for racing. The car is powered by a twin turbo V10 engine, yes you read it correctly, a V10 capable of producing 850HP. Imagine you have a vehicle rages through cities, it’s been designed that can turn even statue heads, you’ll know it’s not just an ordinary car, it’s more than that, it’s a supercar.
Supercars are a unique breed of cars, designed and built to show the world it can be done. Fast, lightweight, superb, thrillseeking, incredible, are just some words associated to these jewels of engineering and motorsport. We humans are a breed that likes to drive fast, loves speed, and has the ability to change from calm and serious to an 8 years old boy, when a supercharged V8 or a twin turbo V10 passes by, in seconds. Supercars are designed to impress the driver and the viewer in every way possible. The AMV-R is one of them, it has all the ingredients for the perfect recipe, Italian styling and engineering and German performance and overall quality.
