Echo is an innovative nightstand design that appears to challenge gravity by balancing on its one side only. LG Hi-Macs have been used to give the product a smooth graceful curve shape and provided a suitable color palette for any environment. This nightstand offers both public and private storage facility. The open area can be used to store latest magazines, your preferred books and other necessary documents while the upper area can be used as a more private storage. Echo can be installed on the wall simply by mounting a metal bracket and sliding it into the exact position. When installed, the open area of this nightstand faces the user’s bed allowing more convenience and functionality.
ALIS is a bench design for Battery Park, a territory that serves as a platform for exploration in the design of public space. This bench is constructed by utilizing the process of renewable plastic injection molding. This process is a common form of method for manufacturing plastic products, usually you can find the application in urban playful equipment. Once user engages with ALIS, the lightness of this object re-informs user’s understanding of initial static nature of the object.
ALIS acknowledges this well established vernacular not for its style, but rather for its desire to exist simultaneously as commodity and art. The structuring of this desire, rooted in functional and economic logic, becomes the formal and material expression of ALIS. ALIS efficiently redistributes external forces through its composite skin system. This skin system maintains a constant surface enclosure thickness while responding to areas of higher impact stress by the integration of fiber bundles. The networking of these bundles comes together to form deeper cross sections in material thickness thus providing optimum structural integrity. Subversive by day, these strands emerge as the sun sets to establish an alternate formal dimension.
Designers : Edward Kim, Tommaso Casucci, Charles Jones, Mike Nesbit

GreenAir is an ecological air purifier concept that uses an innovative idea of purifying the indoor environment with living plants. Mostly, indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air which is an effect of various factors. Researches have shown that there are many plants that can effectively purify air in a natural way. Implementing those plants, GreenAir is envisioned to absorb contaminants from indoor air through the roots and leaves. This concept includes a fan that helps to pull the polluted air to the root region (using solar panel as the energy source), so that huge amount of contaminants can be gathered to purify in a shorter span of time.
