The son of James Dyson seems to have inherited some of his design brilliance. This article shows the development of his CSYS LED task light which is made to last a lifetime.
The article explains the innovation in the design that allows the LED's to last, and its very interesting. Such innovation seems to have been missed by the larger corporations as is shown in the piece. Click the image to read on.
A domestic ladder of this type is useful but is rarely used. By optimising it's size for places with not a lot of space, it makes it a more efficient domestic tool.
It's a fact that the clothes hanger hasn't changed a lot, but the Eslimi by industrial designer Mehdi Mojtabavi changes things.
What's important to note here is that hanger although having added complexity with its collapsible feature, the two parts are still made of Polypropylene. Cost wise they estimate it shouldn't be more expensive than other higher quality hangers and therefore could potentially compete with them. Design firm Ziba I'm sure intends to licence it as they currently seek a patent for the hanger.

This solution to making city cyclists more visible seems to make sense. The complexities of having to create a 360 degree spinning array of RGB LED's looks to have been overcome. The arrays change colour based on whether the bike is cruising or braking and are powered by a generator on the front hub. Not only probably a very effective safety device, but a fashionable one at that. The project is still a work in progress, check the source to see more.
This is the production of Ikepod's modern take on the hourglass, designed by Marc Newson. The documentary itself is also excellent.
Each hand made hourglass comprises highly durable borosilicate glass and millions of stainless steel nanoballs, and is available in a 10 or 60 minute timer.
