Year: Present-2020

Overview: SLB stick magnets are available in 2 sizes… small and large.  They are both plenty strong to hold everyday items… such as keys, pens, and small metal parts.  The large definitely has more magnetic ‘grab’… and more adhesive area for use to hold larger items such as hand tools.

NORDKLAER

Designer: Anton Bijl

Category: Bags

Year: Present-2020

Overview: Every NORDKLAER design adheres to the principle that aesthetics and quality reinforce each other. In contrast to the everyday experience that you can’t have both. NORDKLAER is dedicated to a high production standard. From the initial sketch to the last stitch. That is to say, no sweatshops and a strong incentive for honest labor. NORDKLAER safeguards this responsibility with the local production of your backpack.

An original NORDKLAER backpack is made of high quality fabrics. This implies the use of thick genuine leather, waterproof nylon, natural cotton and high quality zippers – stitched together with polyester thread.

Every backpack has a spacious front pocket hidden on the inside but accessible from the outside. Moreover, every backpack has a spacious compartment for your laptop or tablet (no minimum – max 15”). The waterproof interior will protect your belonging from rain, while the supportive foam in the back protects your laptop (and your back) from any damages.

Overview:  The 7CS was designed primarily as an overtly luxurious cruiser, boasting an accommodation layout that aims to re-create the same levels of space and comfort an owner would receive in their own home.
Tried and tested ideas from the automotive world were borrowed in order to satiate Drive’s desire to challenge traditional superyacht proportions including lines and graphical breakup.

Among her design highlights are a sunken pool; Jacuzzi; helipad; unique interior atrium, and accommodations for 12 guests and 24 crew.

The sunken pool is located forward and features a retractable cover for swimming in less-than-perfect weather, while Drive is currently engineering an arrangement that would allow a helicopter to be garaged to maximize deck space.

With her unique-shaped hull and reverse bow, Drive estimates the cruising speed of the 7CS to be over 20 knots with a range of approximately 5,500 nautical miles.

The initial design for the 125 metre super yacht was shown by Drive at the 2008 Monaco Yacht Show after which they further developed the yacht’s design in light of feedback received at the Show as well as from supplier input.

It is anticipated more details will be released soon along with visuals of the interior space.

Drive Design is a digital imagery company that aims to bring the complex creative ideas of creative teams to life through their application of technical knowledge and visualisers.

They have designed sea-going vessels prior to the 7Cs including a range of small motor boats and large yachts over 50 metres.

Overview:  “Ghost” is a concept which explores the possibilities available when yachts design starts to adopt the technology and approach which is already evident in architecture and transportation vehicles such as planes and trains.
Since time immemorial, yachts have been built as modular ships, with a very simple orthogonal grid of frames, bulkheads and columns – not exactly the technology of the future, where carbon composites, spaceframe structures and advanced glass technology can play essential roles in the overall structure and cladding of a contemporary yacht.

On “Ghost”, the essential elements of the yacht, structure and envelope or skin, are handled quite separately for optimum efficiency as part of a minimalist approach and to achieve the free-form surfaces which suit the function and style whilst retaining the structure in its purest sense, creating a fully visible articulation of the space frame structure. This approach has already been adopted on many of the latest skyscrapers and buildings such as airport terminals, museums, etc., which require large unobstructed spans and where it is fundamental to define the most streamlined and efficient structure, and separately determine the required cladding, transparency and look and feel of the building. This is a particularly obvious approach for large yachts, subjected to massive loads and pressures, yet built without consideration of the potential of using the latest materials on a tremendously light, strong and rigid structure with a highly versatile skin, designed to keep the water out, the guests protected and achieve amazing panoramic views out. This approach is totally functional and yet another creation from a team that enjoys lateral thinking and an “out of the box” approach to design.

The Ghost concept is one of total flexibility, where a tremendously rigid spaceframe system takes care of the torsional rigidity, and allows large span openings, such as particularly handsome shell doors capable of accommodating a 15m limousine tender, which on most yachts could only run-alongside or deck stowed. Conversely, the skin of the yacht is designed for maximum efficiency underwater, and thanks to the developed transparency, allows the creation of open spaces with excellent outward views, yet fully shelter from the elements.

A further “first” in yachting is the honest expression of the complex systems as an integral part of the design. Such visibility will not only add to the interest and the feeling of being part of a complex machine, but of course, will also help efficient maintenance and control.

Ghost also boasts a number of unique features, such as underwater viewing, sliding helipad platforms, opening skylights, a telescopic signal mast forward, a glass sided pool within a handsome gymnasium, a massive atrium around one of the main structures, with balconies and flying bridges linking the various spaces. Green credentials are particularly strong, with the adoption of a new light sensitive film imbedded on the skin of the yacht, generating electricity to take care of all the hotel loads.

The design has not only been developed to achieve efficient hydrodynamic characteristics, but also aerodynamic – that should not only boost efficiency, but also provide a quieter environment underway.
