If you remember the Floyd Leg or Floyd Shelf, you will appreciate the idea behind this new project by the same creators – The Floyd Platform Bed. The principle of modularity and DIY exists here as well. You attach your surface to the brackets, and the piece of furniture is born. The Floyd bed comes in three sizes, king, queen or tween, or, you can only purchase the hardware and use your own surface material. The project is currently Kickstarting.
We, urban dwellers, are jaded for a reason. Population density, compact living arrangement, steady 24/7 activity on the streets, – all these things create noise. Constant, unavoidable, ubiquitous noise, day in and day out. Wouldn’t it be nice to simply eliminate the unwanted sounds around you (especially that loathsome leafblower-loving neighbor on a Saturday morning)? This concept by Emil Blanco is an attempt to do so. Called Hush, the device cancels out sounds, creating a quiet and serene bubble around you. The product mainly lives on the nightstand or bedside table but can be located in any area of the apartment were silence is desired.
It is also envisioned as a charger for your phone, media player, and alarm. Perfect item for an urban home. Can’t wait to see it produced.
