Round Ring by 22designstudio

Recently DesignBoom was selling some of 22designstudio’s rings, and they sold out in a flash. I was lucky enough to get one, and I’ve got to say I love it.  The rings are made of Stainless and concrete, and the concrete feels surprisingly smooth.

“Drawn freehand by the designer, the circular frame of this ring acts as
the beginning of a dialog between the designer and the person wearing
it. The circular design creates ever-lasting space for communication
and interaction between creator and receiver, designer and customer.”

than enough for a long weekend. Design details include hidden wheels,
royal blue cotton lining and a chrome padlock with the correlating key
nestled in its own matching leather cover. Your contents will be
further protected by two additional buckled flaps made from the same
black granulated leather.”

Puma Glow Rider

Surely this isn’t the first time someone has thought of a glow-in-the-dark bike, but it’s the first I’ve seen. Word is that Puma’s Glow Rider will be available April ’08.

“The night glow effect paint used on the steel frame of the bike collects the sunrays during the day, and gives this light off when darkness has fallen, in the form of a beautiful glow, lasting for several hours….Additional features of the bike are its characteristic chunky tires, and a quick, easy and smart semi-folding mechanism, for maximum convenience. This easy-folding design makes the bike a perfect travel companion and allows commuters easy access in and out of public transport, cars or elevators. This unique element provides all the benefits of a folding bike, without compromising on style…”
