Evolution Door

This is objectively stupid

i’m really impressed that they figured out a way to make doors slower to operate while also making them obnoxiously “minimalist” without any reduction in actual occupied and increasing production cost

AmoeBAND became a 2012 IDEA Award Finalist by innovating every possible aspect of the plaster (band aid).

The design revisions were:  

- Strategic cut-outs shape to fit fingers in such a way that it is easy to bend them and not disrupt the bandage.

- An intelligent dressing material allows you to regularly check wounds from the outside, without upsetting the healing process.“According to research, the when an infection of a wound is detected, the pH value is between 6.5 and 8.5. AmoeBAND’s indicator cross turns purple, alerting the user needs to change it immediately.

- Since the bandage material used exudes a leather-like feel, availability in different skin-tones helps it blend in, without overly highlighting the injury.

- The packaging has been redesigned to a matchbox style and includes Braille instructions.

Hat tip to designers Tay Pek-Khai, Hsu Hao-Ming, Tsai Cheng-Yu, Chen Kuei-Yuan, Chen Yi-Ting, Lai Jen-Hao, Ho Chia-Ying, Chen Ying-shan, Weng Yu-Ching, and Chung Kuo-Ting

it’s always funny when people improve on something and you look at the innovations and it’s like so fucking obvious what needed to be changed, but yet no one seemingly thought of it until then, yourself included

Bibliochaise by Nobody&co

I was just thinking how perfect this would be for my humble little apartment when I read the designer’s quote:

“Twelve years ago we lived in a tiny flat, full of books but with nowhere to sit. Problems are always the best inspirations.That same year we drew the first Bibliochaise: a cube in which to sit, with slots all around to put books in. Geometry is magic. Each time you draw a cube or a square, something wonderful can happen.”

Perfect summary. Apparently the chair can hold 300 books and (even more win) comes in a range of different colors. You can visit its home right here.

INNOVATIVE DOORKNOB

Even doorknobs can be improved upon. If a door is locked it should not be available to even try and open.

This shit is dope.

No, you may not enter my room.

This doorknob says you’re not even allowed to try.

I need this because of reasons.
