Portable, Cable Free Charging
Stow was created to improve the currently poor experience or charging one's smart phone on-the-go. Phones are constantly getting slimmer and sleeker but charging them still involves tangled wires and bulky USB converters which fit awkwardly in a pocket or laptop bag.
Stow has flat, seamless form when closed that hides all electrical connectors and fits with Apple’s clean design aesthetic. Wide enough in the center to fit essential components but incredibly thin on the edges, Stow has a very thin appearance and easily slides into a pocket or bag. When opened, Stow plugs directly into a wall outlet and provides a dock area to securely hold and charge an iPhone. No need to carry any cables or bulky USB bricks.
DOGS CHEW GOOD
The Guys at Benebone noticed that a lot of people give their dogs flat plastic bones that dogs have a hard time interacting with. Unable to easily get their mouths or paws around them, they have a hard time getting these toys up off the floor and often times loose interest.
The Benebone Wishbone was designed with dogs in mind from the start to be paw friendly. With it's curved design that helps dogs get a hold of it and deep grooves for great grip, dogs spend less time struggling and more time playing and chewing. Real food like Bacon and Peanuts are co-molded with food safe nylon to make the bone irresisatable to dogs and also extrodinarily durable.
This project was a refresh of an excising halogen track head which used a 'slanting' body element to house the lighting driver. The objective was to update the product for use with LED applications as well as update the appearance to communicate the new high efficiently light source inside.
Pet product live in the home and while many work well, most are eyesores paying little attention to people's wants when it comes to style and design. PET is a series of concepts for a new line of pet products which not only cater to the pets that use them but to their people as well. Blending innovative functionality with simple clean styling, these products are meant to work great and look great in the home.
HDD Bodywork Redesign
When environmental regulations forced the use of a new larger engine in the 4X drill, it was an opportunity for the manufacturer to update the functionality of the bodywork as well. Previously getting the "hood" off to access the engine was a very cumbersome and time consuming process. A functionality overhaul made the drill easier and faster to service and offered the owner added security over the previous model. The aging graphics were also updated to a bolder look which better communicated the purpose of the drill.
