Polygons – The Origami Measuring Spoon

“Unless your measuring spoons are all tethered together (which is annoying unto itself) you’ve probably spent too much time sifting through kitchen drawers trying to find the one you need. Rahul Agarwal‘s Polygon measuring spoon solves that problem with an easy-to-store flat design that simply folds to whatever capacity you need.

Pre-etched and labelled score lines make the Polygon easy to fold on exactly the lines you need to for teaspoons or tablespoons, and since it returns to a flat piece of plastic, it’s easy to scrape the last few bits of ingredients into a bowl. In fact, the only way this design could be improved is if Rahul actually found a few investors willing to help him put it into production.”

Modern Day Penny Farthing by standard highwheels

“Established in 2013 by swedish architect per-olof kippel, standard highwheels reintroduces the challenge and drama of high-wheel bicycles. the unlikely marriage of man and machine becomes evident on a penny farther, an image lost by the ubiquity of conventional bikes.

The hand-made high-wheel bicycles are direct drive, meaning the cranks and pedals are directly connected to the hub; the front wheel can be enlarged to increase maximum speed – the bigger the wheel, the faster the bike. the frame is constructed out of a single tube that follows the circumference of the front wheel, diverting to a trailing rear wheel. all parts and components have been carefully designed; the bike features a high quality stainless steel handlebar, a classic leather saddle and polished hub and pedals. they come in two sizes – 48 and 52 inches – and can be slightly adjusted by changing the crank arm length.”

Some can serve as coat hangers or bicycle holders, some are just fun interior accessory, either way, simple ideas can go a long way. Smitten.
