Water Ball Ripple Sink Makes Me Want to Tinkle

If we were handy enough to build our own sinks, we’d build one exactly like this “The Ripple” faucet, designed by Smith Newnam, which equates relative ball movement to the temperature and amount of water flowing out.

Hot water makes the LED glow red, while cold makes it glow blue, and the two hot and cold channels mix together in the open air to make for your desired temperature. Awesome ? Definitely. Practical ? Not so much.

Alpha television by Brionvega

Gone are the days when the tasteful thing to do was to shut our televisions away behind cupboard doors. ‘Alpha’, Brionvega’s newest addition, is not ashamed to be a television set, its elegant curves testifying to its elevation beyond technology to furniture status; the new generation of Brionvega TV invokes the influences of 1930’s design luminaries Le Corbusier and Eileen Gray, its sleek chromed steel frame recalling the streamlined sophistication of Art Deco and the Modernist movement.

Disdainful of other LCD sets which claim to be two dimensional while in fact coming with unwieldy stands, ‘Alpha’ instead incorporates its base (which also holds the DVD player) behind the screen, the effect being that of a curved L-shape. Meanwhile the die-cast aluminium remote is suitably stylish, its lack of fuss enabling it to lie flat on your table when its not being used. Brionvega advises us to ‘say no to imitators’. Having spied this beauty at Milan’s furniture fair, we’re not sure we could bring ourselves to do anything but.

Philips Aurea television LCD TV

Once the realm of clunky, graphite boxes, televisions are increasingly credible objects of desire in the design department, largely thanks to the simplification (and shrinking) of the wires and controls. Much as we love our gadgets to be the highest tech possible, we like the technology itself to remain out of sight. The advent of the flat screen was a marginally exciting development, but nothing compared to the intrigue we feel towards Philips’ latest creation.

Switched-off, the Aurea is a standard 42″ wall-mounted flatscreen television. But switch it on and the Philips Ambilight technology replicates the colours on screen, creating an ever-changing halo of light. The effect is altogether futuristic but in a reassuringly ethereal manner, intended to effortlessly bring the viewer closer to the action on screen. A sleek remote control device means you can change the levels of brightness and immersion to suit your viewing material, from relaxed to dynamic. In keeping with the seamless integrated technology, 26 invisible speakers surround the rim of the television.
