Boots are the first ones to go wet and squishy during unexpected showers and snow. And we all know that wet feet equal to chills and sniffles; so does this mean we need to invest in different shoes for different weather? NO! This is the new age and technology driven Footwear Company, THE UT.LAB, is out with a four-season boot named THE ARGONAUT. Its innovative, its urban and its for all of us!
The team said, " we are known to use cutting-edge materials and innovative manufacturing processes, so this time around we opted for KEVLAR and TYVEK as the materials. Typically KEVLAR is used as a composite material on the International Space Station; know for its strength, it is also used as police and military grade body armour."
For you and me this means longer lasting shoes that don't go out of style EVER!
NOTE: THE ARGONAUT are unisex in style and design and come in a host of men and women sizes.
That is not all, pushing the limits of inventiveness; the designers integrated EVA Foam Rubber for the outsole and a Leather Grade Microfiber for additional waterproofing and protection.
"In short, THE ARGONAUT is an incredibly lightweight, durable and water resistant boot that has been perfected for urban living." So this means we have an all-weather friend that can endure the 'unforgiving winters in New York City and the harsh desert climates of Las Vegas.'
Keeping with the tradition of #ImpossiblyLight shoes, a pair of THE ARGONAUT weighs almost half that of a similar sized Dr Marten boot – which is 840 grams. The team promises a rapid 9-week turnaround, so in essence; THE ARGONAUT will go from Kickstarter to factory floor to your feet, in time for the upcoming winters. Yes, warm feet this time of the year!

Out of the woods and into the home, the Gilka pendant lamp bring a bit of organic style to modern interiors. It’s irregular “branches” grow and descend from the ceiling, ending in LEDs that spotlight living space. Each integrated LED swivels and can be adjusted with a simple push to direct light exactly where desired. Suspended from a wire, the pendant can also be raised and lowered as needed.

Pages have been written about savvy Smartphones and how little their batteries last. Portable charger adaptors are a great answer, but they too need to be well designed to compliment the sleekness of the Smartphones. The Pokit fits in here somewhere … it is an integrated phone charger-adaptor, external battery and storage pocket that is compact and portable.
The one clever feature is that the USB cable sealed inside the fabric pocket can be connected to charge the smart device. No wonder it snapped the Red Dot Award: Design Concept this year!

A stationary radio? A mobile Bluetooth speaker? A speakerphone? A phone charger? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. It’s called the Plug Radio, and that’s exactly what it does! Plug directly into any wall outlet without cumbersome wires and clutter. Ideal for kitchens, the bathroom and other small areas, it saves valuable counter space. Better yet, it’s always loaded with a full charge that lasts 10 hours so you can quickly unplug and take it on the go!

At first glance, the Bimodal concept is seemingly predictable in a world full of far-out, ultra-aerodynamic conceptual supercars… but it’s got a secret under the hood that sets it apart, and we’re not talking engine tweaks. Dubbed the “ProGrip System,” the design features a hidden 5th wheel. Fit with its own sensors and electrohydraulic system, it provides greater traction in the straightway (also in wet weather), and enhanced cornering stability to prevent understeer and oversteer. Functional or superfluous? You be the judge. Either way, it’s a considerable innovation!

Masterchef contestants can do with this innovative knife, given that they keep chopping up their fingers quite randomly. Essentially, the Sweet Knife is a clever kitchen knife with an integrated medicine loop. The idea was born from a personal experience, when one of the designers had no first aid medicine handy, to help him clean up his kitchen-accident wound.
What the team ended up designing was this knife with an integrated bottle at the handle, which holds emergency meds or ointments.
Someone make this and gift to the cooking contestants please, they will surely bless you!
Designer: April 6th Design
