Auto-parts Turned Into Furniture

Virginia-based Classified Moto imparts old motorbike parts a new life by recycling them into ingenious modern furniture pieces. Not only they recycle these parts but they bring amazing aesthetics out of them. Of course Bike freaks will love these pieces but they are equally attractive for people who have no love for bikes. Dismantling old bikes, the folks get creative, transforming shocks and wheels into unique lamps and tables. Each of these pieces is outstanding though they are entirely modernized yet they carry the same debonair quality as the original motorbikes.

One of their finest pieces is the Classified Moto Lamp made entirely of recycled parts rescued from salvage yards. This design incorporates a shock welded to a transmission gear, then welded to a brake rotor, and finished with high-quality Bakelite sockets. Each piece comes with original scratches and dents, which add to its vintage veneer.

Classifiers even take special requests for specific parts and styles, so ex- motorbike owners longing for their old motorbike can ask for exclusive pieces according to their own sentimental attachment with their ten-speed.

 

The All In One Furniture By IKEA

You get a lot of trouble while fixing cables for your wall mounted LCD and i can bet those wires are never looking decent. And hiding those wires is a puzzle itself, atleast i get puzzled. The smart solution to this problem is all just in one piece by IKEA. They neither call it a TV nor furniture, instead they call it UPPLEVA.

A tip-top HDTV with high quality 2.1 sound system, blue ray and digital boxes comes up in form of a meticulously designed furniture. This ensures that there would be no trouble hiding those wires and installing the entertainment system. The HDTV isnt a simple LCD, instead it is a 1080p HD LED Smart TV.

Two USB ports and four HDMI port come up with the IKEA TV along with a single remote to control all of the components (TV, Blue-ray, sound system). The furniture contains extra drawers as well to place your electronics in them. To top it up, UPPLEVA is now available in different frames, sizes, styles and colours for just $960 (Not Bad indeed).

Jellyfish Lamps

This is ridiculously cool that one could be soo much inspired from this type of idea! Ever imagined having some glowing jellyfish inspite of lamp at your side table? This is amazingly cool stuff brought out to public. As we know jellyfish which infact are not fish, they are just vertebrates. They carry no bones in them and are like a jelly floating, swimming in the water. The one unique part of this kind of creatures are that they absorb the light and emit them when there is dark. So using this type of concept these fancy lamps were made. Talking about the science stuff bioluminescent proteins are actually the cause of emitting light and they are present in many creatures but jellyfish have a little more amount of them in it plus they carry no bones, so they might be perfect to chose from lamp making.

 

Now whether these are stuffed or what this is the information those people who built them can provide us. But all we know is that these type of jellyfish lamps are out for sale ranging from 35$ to 170$.

A Car Made From Coconut

Sounds Strange? lets talk about going greener, so now a days we will be finding American much ahead in studying going green for cars, but in Philippines we got a changed definition of it. As a company from Cebu built  a car from coconut. This was a real challenge for the developers but it turned out to be a lovely thing on creation..

The catchy point was that the company preferred and used the local material as it could save cost and boost economy by using the natural available resources. Sea shells, and coconut flower stalks, rattan stripes these all things were used to build this beautiful car. The car was properly designed and modeled after a 1959 Porsche 356. It took nine months to complete the car.  Clayton Tugonon, a well known and award winning furniture designer built the car body along with the efforts of Cebu. It was also one of the aims of Clayton that he wanted to demonstrate the locals that they can have a good advantage of the local available material inspite of importing other materials and paying their cost. Right now the car is put on display at the Northwing SM City shopping mall in Cebu.

Turn Your Obsolete Tech To Some Useful Thing!

Ever thought of doing some thing creative with that stored junk of tech toys you had. Inspite of knowing that they ain’t do anything except occupying some of your wardrobe space.

An Artist named Rodrigo Alonso made some good thing out of nothing. Well he took all his junk old obsolete tech stuff, put them in a mold of stool and started adding some clear Epoxy Resin in it which filled all the empty spaces. On drying he got a stool which seemed like some crunched techs held together in a large block of ice. So finally he could make use of all that recyclable material. No doubt it would be having  some odd looks like not fitting in house with other furniture but surely with some decorative artistic patterns and even the use of some colourful resins can make it look better in your room.
