Design Rumour

Design Rumour featuring great design, architecture, fashion, graphics and innovation from across the globe.

 

Silhouette Collection

The project gives a second chance to such an unvalued object as a PET bottle, which would be normally thrown away after it has been used. The idea was to create a vase conserving only its silhouette. The vase itself represents an external shell with an inner neck fillet, so it can be screwed onto a bottle like a cap. The 3D printed structure dresses the bottle and makes it disappear under its mesh. The uniqueness of design is the result of choice of shapes, the reduced use of resources necessary for the 3D prints and the new life given to items destined to be discarded.

LELO HEX

The advances and innovations of the HEX condom are rooted in its unique reengineered hexagonal structure. This design, comprising a network of individual hexagonal cells, assigns a number of game-changing benefits to the condom. Taking cues from architecture and from nature, the material is incredibly thin overall, but without compromising on strength and protection. The raised structure is on the inside surface, for an increase in grip and a more comfortable fit.

Origami

According to materials needed to make coffee, the operation is simpler. The cup is made from environmental and degradable reed pulp raw material. The group coffee will be packed together with the cup, facilitating users to quickly make a cup of coffee. Besides, the cup is folded as a paper lantern, which is easy to carry, reduces transportation cost and garbage storage space, as well as improves the use efficiency of ecological environment and spatial environment.

Flies trap lid

The flies trap lid is designed to catch flies. Compare with normal coffee cup lid, it not only has the traditional function but also can give a second life to disposable coffee cups. When people finish drinking, just press the trap bottom before throwing, the flies will be easily attracted by the residual coffee smell. Since this lid has a special conical structure hole, once the flies get in, it is hard to escape.

Loops and Cheese

Designed to be produced by 3D printing in order to take advantage of the process' on-demand and location-independent nature, Loops & Cheese's plastic form is flexible yet strong, perfect for minimizing stress on cables that traditional cable management systems do not take account of. Traditional cable management systems for desktops are also designed with mainly utility in mind, sometimes leaving out good aesthetics. Loops & Cheese hopes to solve these problems; If you cannot hide it, then display it proudly.

Decaffeinator

Decaffeinator is a simple solution to problem of household urban waste, by storing coffee waste and reusing it to sustain the growth of a new plant. Three specifically designed layers serve unique purposes. One layer holds water, the second holds coffee grounds, and a third, perforated layer, holds the plant. Decaffeinator is made of Coffee Based 3D printing filament, further recycling coffee waste. Decaffeinator is a cradle-to-cradle solution to reduce environmental impact and support plant growth, in a way from which everyone can reduce their negative environmental impact.
