- Posted: 02 Oct 2014 09:04 AM PDTThis ultra-utilitarian system of paper and tape furniture, called TapeFlips, brings a whole new meaning to affordable DIY furnishing! The design’s rigid pre-sized paper panels can be reconfigured and combined to make a variety of functional pieces including chairs, tables, shelving and storage. After putting together, users can also customize their pieces with paint or markers for a truly one-of-a-kind aesthetic, something you wouldn’t think of with higher priced furnishings.Designer: Petar Zaharinov

As a user of the tap, you can set the capacity for simple hand washes to advance settings of an elaborate cleanup. The design keeps us in check and encourages us to use our resources thoughtfully.

Posted: 02 Oct 2014 12:01 AM PDTA winner of the Auto Design Prague: Talent of the Year Award, the Coupémotion concept follows in the footsteps of Bugatti’s “pur sang” design principle where lightness and modern aesthetics meet. To achieve this, it’s powered by 4 electric wheel hub engines which allow for both greater range as well as enhanced agility with each operating independently. As for styling, it harkens back to the original coupe where the passenger is fully enclosed while the driver is centered and partially covered.

Posted: 02 Oct 2014 12:01 AM PDTThe conceptual Noise Power system explores the transformation of sound energy, specifically that of road traffic, into usable light. Designed to surround roadways, the solution harnesses energy produced by acoustic micro-vibrations which are passed through a sensitive membrane to a generator that provides electricity to low-voltage LEDs. The result is a large scale system that not only reduces noise pollution, but provides safety lighting powered by the very drivers that need it!
