Citrange Innovates on the Hand Juicer

October 7, 2010

Citrange. A simple fancy juicer by Quentin de Coster.

Citrange is a juicer designed by and for fruit. It is a product that is innovative both functionally and formally. This squeezer is divided into two parts to better adapt to the various diameters of citrus fruit. The juice is released by cells when the latter are pressed against the walls. Then it is directed towards the central axis of the object by the funnel (which filters out seeds) before falling into the glass.

The Nogg Chicken Coop

October 4, 2010

Christopher Jobson

The Nogg is a modern chicken coop designed by Matthew Hayward.

The nogg transcends ideas of what a chicken house usually looks like. It is designed to encourage domestic farming while adding a touch of playful elegance.

Engineered and crafted by hand in the UK the nogg is made from strong cedar wood which is fresh scented and naturally antibacterial. Stainless steel trimming, locks & fasteners and the elevated glass dome gives the nogg a contemporary feel and is reassuringly safe and durable.

September 28, 2010

It’s easy to take for granted the magic of electricity in your home, but these whimsical self-adhesive stickers are a clever reminder of what it really takes to light your room or power your vacuum. PVC-free and standardized for use in the UK, I’m sensing a US market opportunity here. For sale on Hu2.

Brittny Badger is taking items from her friends’ junk drawers and creating order from their chaos. She also disassembles lots of appliances. Given the opportunity I could probably organize stuff like this for hours, so Brittny please let me know if you need an assistant. (via coudal)

A Venice Exhibit Brainstorms New Life for Old Gondola Posts

September 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Entries by David Chipperfield and Paola Navone for the “Tra le Briccole di Venezia” (“Among the posts in Venice”) exhibition that explores ways to recycle the massive oak posts used to dock gondolas.

The so called “briccole”, the posts in chestnut oak on which Venice is built, are used for docking gondolas and as beacons. They are at least ten meters (32.8 feet) high and once driven into the lagoon, they have an average life not longer than 5-10 years. Their section affected by tide rise and fall becomes the natural home for microorganisms as well as sea flora and fauna, but once corroded, they are completely replaced.
