iF Mode folding bike / Pacific Cycles, 2012

Officially the coolest bike I have ever seen – the iF Mode by Pacific Cycles. You need to see video of this thing in action, such impressive engineering.

Overdose Desk / Bram Boo, 2012

Very nice work from Belgian designer Bram Boo.

Teenage Engineering OP–1

OP–1 / Teenage Engineering, 2011

I’m currently obsessing over this synthesiser by Swedish company Teenage Engineering. I mean, just look at it. A gorgeous piece of industrial design.

We’ve been lucky enough to have one knocking about in the office recently, and I can report – even as someone who has zero experience of synths – it’s a joy to use; the UI is staggeringly cool.

Buy it here.

Nanoblocks Space Center

Space Center / Nanoblocks

So far on this blog, 2012 seems to mainly be me geeking out over Space Shuttle related things. I do apologise.

But when they’re this cool, can you blame me? Nanoblocks is like Lego, only smaller. Really small. I just built the space shuttle kit, above, and it’s pretty fiddly stuff. Good fun for the kid/engineer in all of us.

Available here.

John Pawson

Plain Space / John Pawson at the Design Museum, 2010

I finally got around to checking out the John Pawson exhibition currently showing at the Design Museum, and it really blew me away. Such an incredible body of work, of such clarity and  simple elegance. Well worth a visit.
