SMASH CUP: The Reusable Coffee Cup That Fits In Your Pocket

Leak-proof, collapsible and eco-friendly. For any coffee drinker who carries just a briefcase, handbag or less when they’re on the go!

Smash Cup is an ultra-portable, sealed travel cup you keep with you - great for hot drinks (like coffee and tea) and cold ones. When you’re not drinking, it collapses into a compact, liquid-tight disk, saving you space in your backpack, handbag, briefcase or jacket pocket.

Not Knot - A cable tidy that folds into a hard protective shell for cable heads, ear buds and volume controls. 

Not Knot is a cable tidy created by the Blue Marmalade design studio.

Ordinary Behavior  by Kevin LCK

Artist and illustrator Kevin LCK works almost exclusively in black and white, so it comes as no surprise that as he’s ventured into sculptural objects the aesthetic has remained the same, while the dimensions clearly haven’t. In his new series Ordinary Behavior the artist builds dioramas into everyday electronic objects made from cardboard such as a computer, camera, and iPhone.

Canvas by YOY

Tokyo-based design firm YOY transforms this fantasy into a reality. Canvas, a series of three navy ink paintings of French-style chairs, makes an illusion out of its subject. The elastic fabric of the canvas hides an actual chair waiting behind the painting, inviting onlookers to take a seat and become the spatial extension of the two-dimensional print. The simplistic elegance of the work seems to embody how easy it is to add a little flourish and whimsy into the throes of the everyday.

The lamp itself is a rechargeable flashlight. The flashlight can be removed from a steel base alongside the lampshade and utilized as easy as any other flashlight—even more so with its one-button control and smooth design frame.
