Design.Inclined: RingWatch

Design.Inclined: Watch Ring Design

Check out this innovative watch concept. While it seems a bit impossible to build (for example, where would you put the drive motor, how would the individual rings hold up against the stresses of everyday wear, and is there room for a battery in this thing?) this design takes a whole new approach to telling time.

Design.Inclined: The Heineken Cube

Design.Inclined: The Heineken Cube

Check out this really smart bottle design with economic and environmental advantages. French designer Petit Romain’s stackable cube concept saves room in your refrigerator and optimizes shipping space. By eliminating the wasted space caused by traditional bottle designs, a company like Heineken could ship more beers in the same amount of space and over time save on shipping costs and fuel.

Now the real question is ergonomics: would this thing feel comfortable to hold? It definitely won’t fit in a cup-holder but considering it’s alcoholic contents, that shouldn’t be a concern. If it’s meant to be poured into a glass anyway like a Guinness, the beer cube design makes a ton of sense. Otherwise, I cant really see people walking around with these at a party. Still a really cool, out of the box (or should I say in the box?) idea.

Now.Desired: QLOCKTWO W

NewDesired

Very cool watch from Biegert & Funk. Sharp, clean edges with a unique take on telling time. Biegert & Funk make a wall clock in the same style which is fit for any modern home but with a pricetag of $1,100, it’s probably a pass. Looking forward to seeing the end pricing and availability of this watch, check for updates or sign up for their notifications at http://qlocktwo.com/info_w.php?lang=en
