Niice. A search engine with taste.

24. April 2013 - 16:27 Uhr

Designers often need a pool of mood pictures for developing new ideas and getting inspiration. The most search engines provide a huge amount of image data, but in an unfiltered and unsystematic way.  Therefore the searching process is time-consuming, not very effective and can even disturb the inspiration process.

But fortunately there is a brilliant alternative: .


Niice is a search engine, which only provides a filtered collection of high-quality mood pictures, arranged in an attractive grid layout. It has never been easier to get inspiration! Try it out!

LEGO footbridge

24. April 2013 - 10:51 Uhr

Inspired by one of the most known toys – or for others the basic module for testing the first architectural ideas in the living room – Michael Jantzen created a new way of footbridge experience.

It’s a little bit like gamification of the dull nature of bridges and reaching the next level while wandering.  But it is more: „…those who use the Footstep Bridge, experience a new way of crossing over a road, river, etc. as they move up and down through space and time to get to the other side.“

You like watching TV? Maybe just watch the TV.

Folks with an eye for unusual design likely had their interest piqued by Samsung´s new S9 which features a crazy frame design, but now a new Philips television is stepping into the living room limelight. Dubbed the Philips DesignLine, the set hides an LCD display behind a pane of seamless glass with a transparent to solid black gradient that supports itself by leaning against a wall! It’s such a simple idea that creates an iconic design in a field wherealmost everything is seen. Well done Philips!
