When Hulger launched a designer CFL called the Plumen, most of the design world went crazy for the product. So perhaps it will be with the new Nature LED bulb by JUSTLED. The bulb was on display at Dwell on Design, to the excitement of certain design blogs, and presents what could be the best way to go naked (or exposed) with a LED light bulb.
Guy or girl, you’ve probably had the occasion to wear a business suit, right? If you have, you know what it’s like to have a good suit — the material, the cut, the look, the feel. It’s a great feeling, and that’s how Dieter Roskini describes his experience living in the first Passivhaus in Germany, according to a new video called Passive Passion.
HMK Prefab Homes, in conjunction with Sustain Design Studios, debuted a new miniHome design called the CaliMini Solo 1 at the recent Dwell on Design conference in Los Angeles. The pictures and exterior staging don’t appear to do justice to the ever-popular miniHome, but the below video of the Solo provides a better impression, I think. This design, unlike the chassis-based designs we’ve seen from Sustain, is built to the modular code and includes a 616-square-foot interior, 140-square-foot loft, and a 140-square-foot deck.
All that sophisticated faucet technology I shared in yesterday’s post (Part I) about my visit to Delta Faucet Company needs an equally sophisticated aesthetic design. That’s where Director of Industrial Design Judd Lord comes in! During a tour of Delta’s on-site design studio, Lord and his team shared the inspirations behind their luxury Brizo collections.
This is The Beach Box, a shipping container house in the dunes of Amagansett, New York, off Montauk Highway. The home is believed to be the first in the Hamptons to be built from shipping containers and was developed by Andrew Anderson with six-modules from New York-based SG Blocks (the same company behind the Harbinger House).
When I was first asked to represent Jetson Green at the Delta 2012 Maker/DIYer Blogger Event, I knew very little about the concept of makers and even less about our host, Delta Faucet Company. A quick Google search for makers revealed a subculture of out-of-the-box thinkers who share their invention, creativity, and resourcefulness at Maker Faires around the world. Sounds pretty cool, I thought. But what does this “maker movement” have to do with an almost 60-year old plumbing company from Indiana? Along with seven other bloggers, I was about to find out during a two-day, expenses-paid visit with Delta’s makers at their Indianapolis headquarters.
