Nishika N8000 3D photo camera

The Nishika N8000 stereo lenticular camera uses standard 35mm color print film. When viewing lenticular prints, no special glasses or viewers are needed. The camera takes four photos simultaneously from four slightly different angles using a 30mm Quadra Lens System of four identical lenses that are precisely aligned. The lenses have a fixed focal length and have such great depth-of-field that they are focus free.

Tower Kitchen

French designer Philippe Starck created Tower Kitchen – the two standalone units with the dimensions of no more than one square meter per unit. It is a highly compact and space saving furniture for small sized kitchen, where the size of furniture does matter.

The two units are a hot tower that contains a conventional and steam oven , and a cold tower that houses the fridge-freezer. However, other electrical kitchen appliances, e.g. dishwasher or microwave, can be easily integrated into the towers. As the towers are made in rectangular shape, three out of four sides serve as closets where you can keep your kitchen ware, and the fourth side is used for personal requirements. It can be used as a mirror or a blackboard to write down the shopping list, for example.  An additional unit to the towers is a “Trumpet Table” that is used as a dining and preparation table, including a sink and electric stove.

Impossible triangle vase

 

Impossible triangle vase named “90°” is a design by Cuatro Cuatros that displays an intriguing geometry. The product is based on a drawing of an impossible triangle,  converted into a geometrical shape with volume. Depending on the point of view, both ends coincide and make it look like a closed figure. The interposition, orientation and perspective create a contradiction of the space that makes us perceive something that is not. This way, the vase becomes more than just a functional object, turning into a decorative piece that plays with perceptions.
