Saw this on Gizmodo. It is a stretcher concept, designed by Morten Wagener. The idea is to make it easy to transport patients down stairs using caterpillar tracks on the side bars. It appears to be a good, low-cost alternative to the segway-like gyro balanced solutions I have seen, like the ibot. An ambitious conceptual project and an "ID classic" but the color and the centerless wheels detract from the overall design.
The Missoni Lalo Beach Towel. Not sure who needs Missoni for their beach towels but I guess if you have the money why not? They have the logo ribbon woven into the top and bottom edging so that everyone will know you have a designerly Italian towel. I would be afraid that it would get stolen.
According to MoMa "Great for picnics, this patented design features a folding ergonomic handle that doubles as a protective blade guard. The zirconium ceramic blade is lighter yet stronger than stainless steel. Made of a ceramic blade with an ABS plastic and rubber handle. Hand-wash only." Hand wash only? Who are they kidding.
Aluminum hardware and water-resistant fabrics combine to create a lightweight, durable backpack. Full zippered access to main compartment ensures easy packing and unpacking of gear Heat-molded, crush-proof safezone compartment protects eyewear, portable electronics and other fragile gear (compartment locks and can be removed for extra cargo room). Interesting and functionally adequate but the resulting aesthetic does not seem to have any of Thule DNA. They should have looked at the cases mini cooper did.
