Inspired Design

Following on from my post about problem solving, how about these clever designs that (a) allow you to see the temperature of your drink, and (b) prevent you from getting a wet arse. Clever stuff. And so simple!

The Rolling Bench by Sungwoo Park. I swear he got the idea from a Rizla cigarette rolling machine.

Fun! Even the words on the mug change?!

Stevyn Colgan said...

Oh yes. As I said, great design!

I'm a little confused about the mugs.

The first seems to suggest one sleeps with people for remuneration, the second bears an instruction as to how to grasp it, and the third is ageist.

What's going on? I think we should be told.

Stevyn Colgan said...

Chris - Well spotted. I shall make enquiries immediately.

cool benches.. great drunk on the way home potential!! Arms and legs around the bench.. See who can do the most rolls without falling off!!..

now the bench is clever. I'm always wiping seats done so I don't get anything on my ass! heh.

Spud - And you know what? I can see you doing it ('My money's on the ginger bloke!').

Katie - Always nice to read about someone who really takes care of her donkey.
