It’s that time of year again for many of us who are always looking for the best place to hang a coat or put a pair of wet boots. I found some ideas for keeping your things off the floor, out of the way, and in the right place — some store bought, some DIY, but all good ideas!

Unique Design: Fun With Food

Product Design, Product Innovation, Upcoming Inventions

pasta whistle 

This pasta whistle is made of a penne pasta; looks like it would be fun to use before cooking it.

This fruit display bowl is something of a modern-day cornucopia. Notice how it rests differently as the fruit is taken out.

These anamorphic cup and saucer sets are awesome!

Place your fruits and vegetables on this pop-up display for a nice countertop arrangement before you peel and eat them.

These fancy plastic cup replica wine glasses are a tribute to the disposable party cups you normally find at an outdoor get-together. Odd to see them without their trademark red shell, though.

Ah, the kitchen gadget. As many readers know, I have a weakness for simple, colorful, specialized kitchen gadgets. This juicer is no exception. Vivid orange and clever in design, this Citrange helps extract the juice (without the seeds) right over the cup of your choice.

Simple Design: Sealing In The Freshness

General Design, Product Design

After lifting a cap from a bottled drink, you don’t have a way to reseal it, as with a twist cap bottle.  For those of you who enjoy a local brew or specialty soda from a glass bottle, here is a little gadget for you to keep in your pocket at the next party. Beer Savers flex over the opening of a bottle to keep the contents fresh, while also helping to identify your drink. Cool and colorful, I’m sure I’ll see one of these somewhere this summer.
