Grapple Hooks are a hanging system for coats, hats, bags and anything else you deem fit for them. Inspired by old, industrial crane hooks we cast original hooks from bio-resin but soon realised that hand-casting is just too slow, and natural bio-resin just too expensive. Rejecting the usual petroleum-based polymers we discovered an amazing recipe for moulding natural plastic made from grass clippings and recycled plastic. The material is developed by Biowert, a german company (or bio refinery) processing meadow grass into environmentally friendly plastics, insulation and green electricity. The final result is a beautiful, textured, strong natural plastic with the faintest smell of meadow that’s 100% recyclable and renewable.
“A simple buckle system made from a length of natural jute webbing, and held together by a small, bio-polymer buckle, completes Grapple. Users can slide on as many hooks as they like, allowing for a flexible hanging system. We aim to produce the hooks in packs of 1, 2 and 4, with a view to soon offering a fully customizable product where customers can choose the number of hooks and length of webbing. The hooks will come in 4 colors – granite, leaf green, pomegranate red and topaz blue.”

How low can you go? Or more precisely, how minimal can a design be and still function as a playable and attractive deck of cards? For Iota designer Joe Doucet the answer is – very low!
IOTA is a deck of regulation playing cards that dallies with the idea of how much you can take away while still maintaining a playable deck. Simple geometric symbols are reductive versions of hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades and while it’s necessary to mark the back of regulation playing cards, we’ve done so with a minimal diagonal line instead of the overly ornamental versions used at your granny’s bridge club.
The starting point of designing ‘HUHU’ is for encouraging people to get emotional compensation by using the object. Many people have their unconscious / fidgeting behaviour including chewing nails, shaking legs so on. ‘HUHU’ try to help people to be relaxed by pulling out strings from the inner surface of the cushion to play with them. The end results of unconscious behaviour make ‘HUHU’ beautiful. The name & metaphor ‘HUHU’ comes from the moment of people deep breathing when they relax.
Time2Play is a Wall Clock simple and ironic, made of lacquered wood. The clock shows the willingness to interpret in the ironic and playful passage of time, bringing a bit of fun at any time of day. The men clung to the hands show their performance as circus trapeze artists.
The Sweet Pot by Jeong Kim is an innovative plant pot design where the bottom basin acts as a growth patch for extra grass. Essentially the design takes care of excessive watering and drainage at the same time. More like the extra water acts like a feed for the grass patch at the bottom, hence no drains required.
