The HiLo

The HiLo is quite an interesting concept; it is a 10” OLED Tablet with a wireless felt keyboard. Now the thing about the keyboard is that it’s styled as a jacket to hold the tablet. At the same time it features fused (hot pressed – embedded circuitry) keys on the outside.


BAMScape

BAMscape is a free-form seating environment commissioned by the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive. Installed for a two-year duration, BAMscape provides a new centerpiece within the museum’s large 6,692 sq ft central atrium gallery, and merges disciplines of art, architecture, and furniture. As an open site for lounging, film screenings, live performance and multimedia events, BAMscape fosters the museum’s direction for providing diverse event programming amidst its gallery spaces.

BAMscape hosts wireless Internet and integrated outlets for powering laptops, and allows visitors to enjoy the space as a site for study and social networking. To achieve a maximum of volumetric presence within the budget limitations, the pre-fab system deploys CNC large-scale laser cutting processes to custom manufacture 150 individual curved modules. Lightweight and comprised of 93% air, the rigid foam structural substrate is laminated with thin layers of painted plywood.

Bed Toppings

The sweetest dreams are had sleeping inside a giant Sleepyhead Chocolate Bar. Snuggle in amongst happy sleeping chocolate and pull up your chocolate wrapper doona cover. Hopefully no giants come into your bedroom or they might gobble up the chocolate bar with you inside!

Colour your dreams with Snooze Time Dreaming Pencils. Sleep amongst the colourful pencils and pull the pencil box over you as your doona. Drawing is fun and it’s a good idea to draw your dreams when you wake up. Then you’ll remember them forever.

There’s nothing cosier than being packed in like sardines -Sardine Tin Bed Topping. Dream of catching a big fish as you sleep amongst your new friends. You can pull up the doona cover over you so are inside the tin. The best bit is, these sardines don’t smell!

Offspring of a donkey sire and zebra dam, called a zebra hinny, or donkra, do exist but are rare. Zebroids have been bred since the 19th century.
