Wall mounted bike racks are something I have wanted for an age, so over the next few weeks I have decided to make one.

The boom boom wireless smart speaker by Mathieu Lehanneur is evidence that not every single wireless speaker has to be based around some sort of boring rectangle or cube!

Simplicity in design is something many creative people strive for and many reach this, but only by sacrificing all character in a product. GamFratesi are a studio who do not do this. Their desk ‘Rewrite’ is simple and eye catching yet maintains minimal simplicity with a definite function.

'Make your own lamp' is a gorgeous little idea from the New Zealand based designers Douglas and Bec. It is smart, simple and quirky but at £150 it may be a tad pricey!

The new Ikea 2014 PS series is targeted towards you professionals, and as I am one of those these products appeal to me hugely. They are small, compact and simple and yet utterly stunning at same time. The restrained elegance allows it to be used in any style of modern house, whilst each piece maintains some level of quirky character.

As part of the final year Contextual Design Essay at Brunel we write an essay on a topic of our own finding. I decided to write about how a the lack of understanding in coding and electronics has separated designers and engineers with the general public; but how this is being rectified by educating the next generation. Take a look at a few images of the printed article and click through to have a read.

When industrial material meets a clever manufacturing method the results are always extremely interesting, andnd this is certainly the case with these fantastic shelves made from cement. Initially formed inside a plastic bag, once removed gives the appearance of a soft fabric like material.

I am back in London and loving the city life once again. Seeing friends, family and colleagues who I haven’t spent time with for the last 18 months is great; but just being back in the UK’s capital is a welcome change to the small village of Delft where I lived last year.

The Stair-Rover is a fascinating new project on Kickstarter and I truly believe it could revolutionise transport around cities. I am a keen cyclist and use mike single speed bike most days for transport to and from my university campus in London, however I am also an avid longboarder. I switch between these modes of transport mainly dependant on weather and distance, but always prefer using my custom made longboard when I can.

This is not just because I love the feeling of using something you have crafted yourself, but also the amazing free flowing feeling longboarding gives. Cycling makes you feel so detached to the road whereas boarding truly is the least amount of equipment you need to travel around a city. Longboarding gives you the freedom to grab your board jump on and off the train, then skate to your final destination; and also gets rid of the worry about your bike being stolen as you always keep it with you.

Of course until now stairs have always been an issue, and commuting through London nearly always throws a stair set in my way. But with the Stair-Rover these are no longer a problem so I really do hope you will back the idea on Kickstarter, just as I have done, and start exploring your city in new ways!
