High Tech Katedra Desk That Charges Your Phone

Sat, Nov 22, 2014 | Desks

Desnahemisfera designed an office desk, named Katedra, out of contrasting materials that even includes a built-in wireless phone charger (AirCharge). A curved white Kerrock surface is used for the desktop which sits atop what looks like a stack of wooden beams. The blocks are actually three, push-to-open drawers that are cleverly disguised. The AirCharge means your phone will always be charged. The charger is connected to an LED-charging indicator which flashes white when it’s in standby mode and turns red when you set your phone on it. When it turns green, your phone is fully charged. The idea is brilliant: it’s so comfy to work and to charge your phone at the same time!

Unique Eclipse Clock And Minimal Art Object In One

Wed, Nov 19, 2014 | Clocks

Designed by artist Iván Navarro, the Eclipse Clock is a minimal art object and functional digital clock made of aluminum, LED lights, acrylic and glass. Why such a name? Because the circular clock face begins completely dark at midnight and becomes gradually illuminated as dawn approaches until entirely lit at noon. As the hours pass, the word ‘PETRIFICATION’ gradually appears before the viewer, intended as a deliberate reference to the archaeological process wherein historical time is consecrated through layers upon layers of organic sediments. Beneath the art object’s immaculate composition lies a deep meditation on the theme of eternity, as well as the relationship between light, time and motion.
