Munich Underground

Alas I have never seen the Munich underground in person, but these photos by Nick Frank even capture it in a way almost no one has ever seen it. The interesting architectural environments pop with color and bold lines, which are normally obscured by the blur of people bustling through them.

Punkt

Power strips and electronic power supply products have always felt as though they have been neglected by design. Apple has led the personal computing and electronics realm on advancing that area, but most other companies continue to release the most basic black and grey plastic adapters, which leave a vast ocean of improvements yet to be realized. Punkt has been known for creating products which through a minimalist aesthetic have been able to challenge the status quo, including their Punkt DP 01 cordless phone. Pictured here is their newly released ES 01, which is a simple yet ingenious “power strip” design. I put the words power strip in quotations because it is neither a strip nor what we have come to expect from those bland uninteresting power sources. The round shape and strategically spaced and aligned outlets allow for the cords to be gathered and fed out in one slot. Furthermore the sleek lid cloaks the unappealing plugs and transforms it into an immaculate orb.

Plank Sofa

Today being one of the first damp dark days of fall I would love to be curled up on my couch at home surfing the web. The Plank sofa designed by KnudsenBergHindenes is definitely what I picture in my head when I daydream of being home on my sofa. This minimal design incorporates a simple two plank wood construction made from douglas spruce with beautifully turned wooden legs. A simple yet appropriate upholstered top nestles into the L shape created by the joining of the planks and leaves a broad expanse of the flat top open as a perfect end table.

Zai Higo

Simple, utilitarian, beautiful. Those are the first three adjectives that come to mind when I saw these tools designed by Kacper Hamilton for Swiss ski company Zai. Both the name and design pay homage to the Japanese Higonokami (“Higo”) crafted by metal smiths for centuries. The design and manufacturing follow in the footsteps of the original Higo craftsmen, with the utmost attention to detail. Another element that Zai requested was for the entire tool to take up the least amount of space as possible, or order to make the tool as efficient as possible for skiers and backpackers to stow.

Binary Thumb beta-launched its new spreadsheet app called Grid last week. A app that aims to simplify and redefine how spreadsheets can be used. Easily allowing users to integrate maps, images, numbers and other data.

Meccanica

Meccanica is a super versatile light weight shelving solution engineered by Valcucine for Demode. My favorite part about this system has to be its versatility. It can literally be applied in every room and space in the house to organize or display your belongings. One of my favorite uses is the indoor garden with all the potted plants, and the industrial look of the kitchens which use it is really interesting as well. The system is customizable, from adding drawers to how it is fixed to the floor wall or hanging.

Dove House

Architects Gundry Ducker designed Dove House as an extension onto the back of a terraced victorian townhouse in London. The kitchen is so minimalist and clean, I would absolutely love to cook in there, and clean for that matter. All the surfaces look like you could so easily wipe them clean. The protected outdoor deck area is really beautifully handled, I am curious though how the dark stained larch wood reacts with sun. It seems like it could really heat up.

Brisk

Brisk is a new weather app in beta from the awesome guys over at Two Solid. As opposed to the bland pervasive data based weather apps Brisk takes a more visual and tactile approach. The current and upcoming weather is illustrated with simple icons and color fields based on the temperature and weather type. By taking away most of the excess components your average weather app seem required to use Two Solid was able to create a fresh fun way to check the weather.
