Cool Designs

I absolutely love Design Spotter! It’s a German webzine that offers virtual space for modern and contemporary designers to showcase their wares for free. Very cool. Anybody can upload their products to the site (you just need to follow simple instructions on how to do it), so you get an ecclectic mix of items from all over the world—from the really innovative to witty to down-right silly and bizarre. Here are some of my favorites:

1) Moka Pot

Moka Pot

A traditional feel yet totally modern stovetop espresso brewer.

2) Toaster

Reggeli Toaster

This is a concept toaster design—with a triple-purpose lid that acts as a butter board, cutting board, and a toast rack—from UK designer Nolan Chandler.

3) Bookmark


A flexible organic LED bookmark that lets you read in the dark. How cool is that! The designer, Avnish Priya Gautam, is from India.

4) Espresso Machine

Espresso Machine

I want this for Christmas or New Year or for my birthday! It looks scary and cool at the same time. It’s made by designer Pierre Ittner from Germany.

5) Silly Pillow


Talk about silliness. This was made especially for the World Cup. It’s called “It’s different for girls”—a pillow designed for women football fans.

Design: TISCH 5, Silja Kaeser and Jessica Müller-Wallraf

6) Bizarre cuckoo clock

Cuckoo Clock

A digital clock with metal housing, chromed nails & chain… and a stuffed bird.

Designer: Michael Sans

7) Existentialist Vase


The Vase symbolizes the experience of transformation in life. It is produced by Rosenthal and is available online at
