    What do a Storage Unit, a Basin and a Transistor Radio Have in Common? by Yellowtrace

     

    What do a Storage Unit, a Basin and a Transistor Radio have in Common? I mean, isn’t it just so obvious?  Of course, all of these fine product examples fully embrace one of the hottest and most enduring design trends - Thin Black Lines! Are you sick of me banging on about TBL already? Hope not, because I’m far off from being done with this puppy… and so is the rest of the design world it seems. Okay, let’s take a closer look.

    A Mogens Lassen sketch from 1943 formed the starting point for Frame, a flexible storage solution comprised of square boxes in thin black metal frames. Smoking hot. Frame modules can be hung directly on the wall, connected together, stacked, or they can stand on their own on the floor. Frame is manufactured in Denmark with superb attention to detail, offering endless options and individual combination. Extreme love! Coming very soon to Australia to Fred International.

    Flow FM Radio from Lexon.

    Flow is a transparent FM radio designed by Philip Wong for the French brand Lexon. This beautiful product was the winer of Red Dot Design Award for 2013. Powered by standard AA batteries, Flow has no visible cables and cords. It also performs as an MP3 amplifier and 3W speaker. I never thought I could get excited about a speaker, but I believe that may have just changed.

    Kub Basin by Victor Vasilev.

    Kub basin is the brainchild of  Milan-based architect Victor Vasilev. The collection is made from Carrara marble and glass, challenging our preconception about solid bathroom vanities. Whilst it may not the most practical design, there is no denying the fact this is one groundbreaking and spectacular looking basin. Kudos to Mr Vasilev.
