Conbox Fan

 

It’s August, officially the dog days of summer. If you have air conditioning you may think that’s enough, but a fan in the room you spend most time in will really help redistribute all of that cooler air and help save on your electric bill a bit as well. I really love this conceptual Conbox Fan that’s so visually appealing and well designed – it’s controlled by your smartphone and can be broken down for storage during cooler months.

Kozmophone

 

Kozmophone is an updated take on Thomas Edison’s phonograph with touches of from the past, present, and future in its design. The classic horn-style speaker remains, but rotates a full 360-degrees for uniform quality listening. The speaker can also be removed and used alone through any Bluetooth device. There’s even a holographic display inside the main cylinder and ambient lighting. Kozmophone is currently waiting for its fully-funded Kickstarter campaign to wrap up, so if you’re into it get in on the ground level.

Flipp Music Remote

 

Flipp is a remote for your wireless music (Sonos and Spotify) that is minimally gorgeous. The flat disk has zero buttons and functions by rotating and clicking its two sides – one to control volume and the other to control playlists. Simple and to the point done just right.

CEILI AIR

 

CEILI AIR is meant to hang from the kitchen ceiling, bringing air filtration and dehumidification to one of the most popular rooms of the house. The height from which it hangs can be adjusted, and a light on the lower portion offers some space-saving ambiance. Fingers crossed that this student project becomes a reality.
