Overview: This sleek train concept, the latest from international design practice HASSELL, was inspired by the hard styling of the iconic 1960s Australian HK Monaro coupe. The A-HSV double-decker train also offers a modern, spacious interior fit with open commuter seating, private quarters for meetings, luxurious dining, & even a convenience store. Aside from being an aesthetic achievement, the A-HSV also presents an alternative low-carbon, safe mode of transport for travelers between the Australian capital & regional cities.
The real ambition behind designing the A-HSV was its response to Australia’s national debates on environmental, economical & social issues. The train aims to reduce the reliance on air & private vehicles, provide shorter travel times to regional cities under pressure from population growth, & reduce transport related congestion within cities.

Overview: A winner of the Auto Design Prague: Talent of the Year Award, the Coupémotion concept follows in the footsteps of Bugatti’s “pur sang” design principle where lightness and modern aesthetics meet. To achieve this, it’s powered by 4 electric wheel hub engines which allow for both greater range as well as enhanced agility with each operating independently. As for styling, it harkens back to the original coupe where the passenger is fully enclosed while the driver is centered and partially covered.

Overview: One look at Handsome’s modern Neck Brace design and its focus is on lightness and discretion becomes apparent. While neck braces are the simplest solution for stabilizing the head, they’re often the most obvious and cumbersome. To combat this problem, the new design utilizes an open and lightweight nylon structure weighing in at just 80 grams. It not only feels cooler but is more comfortable by placing the weight of the head on the sternum rather than the collarbone.

Overview: Queel & Company’s not-so-utilitarian Spool Dock blurs the line between modern home decor and electronic accessory. Crafted in the USA from sustainable North American white oak, merino felt wool and a weighted metal base, this stylish charging dock is as sophisticated as it is warm and natural. Better yet, it also doubles as a convenient cable organizer that allows users to swivel docked devices with the touch of a finger!

Overview: This modern stationary concept reimagines the sticky note as a reusable, eco-friendly alternative to wasteful paper notes. Simply called Reminder, the gadget works similar to a kid’s magnet doodle board, where magnetic particles are brought to the surface and made visible with a magnetic pen. Better yet, you can assign a timed alarm to each note via the smart dock. When it’s time, the sticky note will light up as a reminder!
