At this point these Designer Baking food stamps are only a concept, but wouldn’t you love to see them realized?

The unofficial start of summer is finally here, and it’s time to take advantage of everything we dreamed of during those long winter months. Agota Rimsaite has designed the conceptual Panama Banana, a dual-purpose piece of furniture that’s meant for relaxing as well as playtime. Turn it one way and you’ll be relaxing in a hammock, flip it ninety degrees and you’ll have a soccer goal!

I love ritual, and Purpur looks like it would lend itself to such things instantly. Roxanne Flick‘s conceptual graduation project to create a tea set inspired by the beauty of nature and art is stunning. Using the form and behavior of the flamingo, Flick designed a kettle, teacups, and sugar and cream bowls made from porcelain, oak saucers and an oak, glass, and granite table.

Aditi Kapur‘s The Theory of Colours concept was inspired by the unlikely combination of her 10-month-old niece and Drake’s Hotline Bling video. The vivid, rich colors had her rapt and it got Aditi wanting to create something interactive, combining color theory and gel films.
“The Theory Of Colours is the interaction between geometric artworks and gel papers, producing fascinating results with colours that are as much fun as they are a learning experience for kids and adults alike. The process of using different combinations of gel papers with the artwork to arrive at a visual answer makes the prospect especially exciting for kids, owing to how naturally inquisitive they are.”

The experimental prototype is constructed out of polyester and is currently part of MOMA’s collection in New York. This almost immaterial house self-inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun, it protects from the cold one way and from the heat when reversed.

Ilot is one of those projects that I got really excited about and then was immediately crushed, because it’s a concept and not available for purchase. Ilot, French for island, was created by Marine Hunot during a residency in Fay Billot, a village in the French countryside. Hunot used two unlikely materials – felt and wicker – to create one amazing rug.
