    Katyuska Rojas,

    What’s impractical about these? Look at the sugar cubes, all you would need to change is something minor in the manufacturing process. Even if that cost more you could offset it with slightly higher prices and still be successful. Obviously there is also a market for the chairs and the electronics which might seem less practical.

    Maybe these wouldn’t work for middle America (even though there is a good chance they would) but certainly any one of these would be a blockbuster in the appropriate market. In other words, they are practical if you, or the people you sell them too, have a little imagination.

    Constable is a job in law enforcement.

    Very nice, innovative and generally useful items.

    It always amuses me when people start to pick faults – truth be told, there are some very desirable items here.

    I think the chairs are from Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey. Anyone?

    can i acquire/buy any of these items or are they all purely conceptual?

  • Steven Snell

    bcoo,
    I’m not sure. My guess is some are available and some are just concepts.

    That sewer grate key holder makes me nervous.

    I really love some of the items here, if I could find a place to buy them I would. Although the wireless ear buds might be a nuisance if I ever lost one….

    Really brilliant and inspirational collection, product design can be innovative and unique, but with the designs above you can see there is a connection and reasoning behind the design, i.e. the sugar lump, the milk jug and key holder.
