Leica iPhone 5 Case

Leica iPhone 5 Case by Les Forges MDK

unlike the previous example we have seen, the Leica iPhone 5 Case conceived by Maxime de Keiser of Les Forges MDK does not take things too literally. the form remains the recognizable iPhone case, but yet one can immediately pick up the Leica influence. and that’s what we call design excellency – capturing the essence of the product. key highlights include a forged aluminum slider-type case, wrapped in a thin layer of leather across its midsection and along with details like non-functioning lens ring with scale markings, a loop hole for lanyard, and finally, finishing off with the iconic red and white Leica logo at the bottom corner of the case.

Longboard Stroller by Quinny and Studio Peter van Riet

Longboard Stroller by Quinny & Studio Peter van Riet

want to be the coolest mum or dad on the block? then be sure to look out for the Longboard Stroller, a concept stroller conjured up by stroller specialist Quinny and design agency Studio Peter van Riet that defies the norm of a stroller design by incorporating a baby stroller to a longboard. but why a longboard with a stroller? the explanation put forward by Quinny was one that’s pretty profound, but to sum things up, the Longboard Stroller aims to give parents living in an urban environment, the freedom to move and to travel longer distances in an environmentally responsible way. sure, it is true that you could have a motorized stroller or sort (or a buggy even, if your city allows), but that wouldn’t be as green as something that’s powered by your very own legs, would it? moreover, if have always loved longboard, this stroller lets you continue with your passion even if a child comes into your life. well, except that, with this contraption and your precious little one onboard, thrills like speeding round obstacles and dashing down hill have to be omitted. you know, for safety sake.

The Federal Maple Set Knives

The Federal Maple Set Knives

knives are made of steel, which is fact that will never change for next few decades or so. ceramic knives did made an attempt to usurp the throne reigned by steel (carbon included) but to no avail. so, our question is: will a set of knives crafted from maple wood (leaving just the slicing edge as steel) such as The Federal Maple Set Knives, make the cut? we really don’t know but we kind of dig the idea. guess it is mainly due to fact that there isn’t exciting coming out of the knife cohort and hence, when one is crafted from a single slab of maple wood that extends from the handle to the knife body Continue reading
