These days everyone has become a Michelin-star chef, so it’s most likely that a good set of knives is on your next shopping list. And if you love compartments and hidden space, well this one is surely for you.
Instead of having a massive knife block, literally blocking half of your kitchen working surface, this designer took advantage of the knife’s flat body and created a block inside the wall. The added cutting board completes the set, turning every mature cook, into a top-of-the-range chef. Clean freaks will be happy to hear that the board is removable and can be washed easily.
Much in the way that speed detectors clock and display our speed, this gadget clocks noise levels in a library. Who thinks of this? The Noise Guide takes up space and electricity. Is this over the top? What happens when it gets to the red level?
Perhaps a siren goes off. Or maybe an official-sounding digital voice announces that the noise level has reached unacceptable levels. Shush!
A Street Lamp with a Helpful Hand
Whether it’s rain, snow, or sun, this streetlight comes in handy. Offering more than just light, it is modeled after one of Coquitlam’s artsy park bench installations in British Columbia. The bench faces a view of a pretty view, an inviting scene from any angle.
This example of smart art is found overlooking Lafarge Lake.
I Think I Can
It took us a while to understand what was the purpose of this holder. We mean, why on earth would anyone want something like this? And then, the dime dropped. And this became one of the greatest designs ever (in our eyes).
Next time you buy a can of coke (one that comes straight out of the fridge), grab a handle, place it on the can, and say goodbye to cold hands caused by holding cold cans.
Elevators have a limit of people that can use them at once. The bigger the elevator, the more people can squeeze themselves in. It also indicates the weight limit. So, we're not going to start counting the number of people that are cramped inside with us, and we are surely not prepared to weigh anyone. The designer of this thought of it all.
So, the number of people is not always the most accurate measurement of the elevator's capacity limit. Surprisingly, it can be as little as two people who can reach the limit easily.
