Ship-shaped hospital

Array

Array
Gear  |  Design
Monaco-based Russian billionaire businessman and hobbyist architect Vasily Klyukin recently unveiled his plan to construct an upmarket hospital and spa that closely resembles a ship. Klyukin hopes that the White Sails Hospital and Spa will become "the world's first hospital that no one is afraid to visit." The idea is to make a building that's more friendly and welcoming than traditional hospitals. The idea was apparently born from Klyukin's own personal experience of going to hospitals to be checked for his upcoming ride on Virgin Galactic:
"I will fly into Space next year. My health condition has to be checked every six months. That is why I know this feeling very well,- every time I'm approaching the white building of the clinic, I don't feel any joy. But I would like to show you the hospital, where there is no room for fear. And so that my son could ask about this hospital: "Daddy, when will we visit the ship again?""

Array

Array
Gear  |  Design
The second Panasonic mobile phone designed under the theme ‘One Pin Disassembly’. The challenge was to create a ‘flip type’ mobile phone that could completely disassemble with the removal of a single pin. A strong metal cylindrical hinge shape was designed to house the ‘Panasonic spring loaded manual flip mechanism’ on one side and the disassembly pin on the other. Once unscrewed the hinge allows the phone to explode into its various parts, aluminum frames, plastic housing and circuitry, enabling quick and easy recycling.

Skull Tea Infuser designed by Lee Jinyoung

Array
Gear  |  Design


Designer Lee Jinyoung of i-clue design has created a mini silicone skull to brew your tea.
"The story of Buddhist Master Wonhyo drinking water from a skull was the motive for the design of the skull tea infuser. Wonhyo felt extremely thirsty one night, and drank from a human skull full of brackish water. The truth that he had drunk water from a skull remained unchanged after he learned the truth about the water the next morning; therefore, he realized the truth that everything is created by one’s own mind. This product reflects the desire to feel Wonhyo’s significant meaning of life and have fun while taking a short time to drink tea in daily life. "
