This iron has been designed to address male users. Common irons around are usually in round shape and white color, they only change the color into black to address male users. Nico Kläber tried to redesign our current iron into something more masculine. This concept is an example of how a real men‘s iron could look like – powerful, edged, metal-cool and no reason to hide it but much more to be proud of. It even has a practical novel functionality, users can reduce the size of the iron surface to precisely flatten shirt-sleeves. Simply use the lever to lift up the biggest part of the surface a tiny bit. Clever isn’t it?

1. How CleaninCloud Carbon Dioxide Dishwasher works?
This dishwasher is waterless. To wash dishes it uses Carbon Dioxide which has great cleaning and disinfectioning properties. Cleanincloud counteracts the greenhouse effect because it absorbs the Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere. The gas is absorbed by the coating layer of the dishwasher, then it is kept under high pressure in the second layer. The most internal zone with nozzles dispenses sublimated gas directly onto dishes and cleans them.
2. What about sewers?
The garbage and waste are solid cubes. They are kept in the special chamber. They may be recycled into a biofuel or may get composted.
3. The usage.
CC location is dedicated to the wall. All control panels and operating units may be highly
adjusted to the users height. The flexible implementing pocket is in the left side of the dishwasher. Before the wash starts it chooses the proper chamber depending on the amount of dirty dishes you put inside. Under 10 kg will be used the smaller chamber and with over than 10 kg starts the bigger one. When you want to get some dishes out, simply touch the icon of the dish, and then the amount needed. Dishes will be put out automatically.

Aquakit has been designed to help numbers of villagers in Turkey that still live without water plumbing systems. These people still have to manually carry water from nearby fountains (or not so near) back and forth several times in a day. Aquakit offers an affordable and durable system that improves the life standards of these people by addressing their needs of carrying, storing and using water. The system components are stackable containers, tap attachments, stands that elevate the containers to a proper height, a cart that enables a villager to carry up to six containers at a time, and funnel and hose adaptors that help villagers to easily refill the containers.
This product system offers a significant improvement in life standards of the villagers, yet it is cost effective and sustainable. All the material selections are made considering product lifespan and material – manufacturing costs. The system perfectly solves the problems of the villagers regarding; carrying, using and storing water. The final design consists Water Containers, Carrying Cart, Taps, Stands, Funnel and Filling Attachment. Each family will get a kit, consisting 6 white and 3 yellow containers, 3 stands, 1 carrying cart, 1 funnel and 3 taps.
The containers have two handles for easy carriage and easy placement on the stand and a special lid to connect the tap easily; preventing water to spill if nothing is attached. They are white in color, which enables the water level to be seen easily, while revealing all the dirt. Containers for toilet water are yellow in color so that user can distinguish them easily. Water level can also be seen through them.
Carrying cart is able to carry six containers at a time. It is designed for the harsh conditions of the villages. Its structure consists of steel pipes and steel sheet with mechanical joints which makes it long lasting. Tap can be attached to the lid of the container and simply turns the container to a flowing water resource. User can bend the hose easily, in order to adjust its place. Stand enables user to place the container higher and provides an angle to get more effective use of water, while providing clean contact. Funnel can be screwed on the container, enabling stable filling of well water and hot water. Filling Attachment is connected to the village fountain. Villagers can fill the containers with the help of the hose, instead of moving the containers one by one underneath of the tap.
The system overall is not a pure new thing for the villagers. The villagers are already familiar with the language of these products. Thus they will be able to adopt these products in their lives easily.
