“Ze o Ze,” the This or This Shoes

Ever feel like you need a quick change in shoes, but home is so far away that you have no choice, but to stay in the pair you’ve chosen? Well, you no longer have to carry your whole pairs of shoes, why not just swap the front or back end of it?

Israeli designer Daniela Bekerman has designed what could possibly be the next big thing in women’s fashion, the Ze o Ze shoes (Ze o Ze in Hebrew means “This or This”). Many of us work a 9-5 job and plenty of times we are invited to a date or to join happy hour with our girls, but we don’t want the burden of having to carry our pumps in our bags, no, that’s such a hassle! So why not try the modular shoes and go from flats to pumps in a quick second!

It’s a Hoodie! It’s a Shirt! It’s A Bag! It’s All Three?

Yes, ladies, it is no joke! Stephanie Simek has done it big time. Consider this garment your new best friend especially if you’re always on the run like me and live in a very unpredictable environment such as Miami, FL where one minute is shining and the next is pouring.

In a quick flash you can run to the groceries on a rainy day with your hoodie, contribute to the planet by not using bags and turning the hoodie into a bag and finally head on to the gym with your sporty shirt that was recently your bag. Whoa, wasn’t that a easy fix to your daily errands? Although a bit pricy in the long run this triple thread item that can be braided, twisted, wrapped, knotted and much more is definitely worth buying.

All You Need is a Casulo

If I were to tell you that inside this box you can fit an armoire, a desk, a height-adjustable stool, two more stools, a six-shelf bookcase, and a bed with a mattress, would you believe me or just think I’m simply delusional? Well, guess what? I am sane and inside this box does fit all those items I mentioned above.

Casulo was designed by Marcel Krings & Sebastian Mühlhäuser, and it won an award for its “cleverness, finesse and qualitative realisation of the idea” back in November 2007. Your entire apartment can fit into this small 31″x47″ (that’s 80 cm x 120 cm) box which can be lifted by two people. Each piece takes about 10 minutes to assemble/disassemble.

So if you happen to be like me a nomad or a frequent mover then you definitely cannot go wrong with a Casulo.

I now leave you with a short video of how the Casulo is assembled, enjoy and to all the nomads consider purchasing it.

Pump Up the AmpLamp

The British have came up with a fascinating innovation, they call it the AmpLamp. Here we have the combination of a nicely crafted table light with an amazing audio system.

Its audio system ranges from above 20kHz to less  than 40 Hz, essentially by using a unique configuration of Airsound drivers and a transparent NXT panel speaker, the Amplamp is able to create a 360 degree spatial sound with realistic staging.

The Amplamp is available in black or white and with a choice of shade making it versatile enough to suit any room decor/theme. You’ll definitely impress your guests when they notice that your lamp not only lights up a room, but also pumps it up!

All you are really required to do is connect/plug your audio source and pump up that Amplamp.

The Ultimate Go Green Apartment

This apartment located in Hong Kong, China may be one of the Greenest apartments your eyes may ever see. In Hong Kong it is a principle to use make every space functional, which should be practiced more often here in the US also.

Gary Chang has taken a two bedroom apartment which equals to 330 square feet and turned it into multiple rooms. The bathtub is behind a closet which is behind a bookcase, everything can be moved, slid, pushed, pulled, etc. There is even a screening room for goodness sake! I would take that apartment any day for what I have now, wouldn’t you?
