A Designey, No-Mess Fire Extinguisher from Sweden

20 June 2024 @ 1:00 pm

Designed in Sweden, the Maus Fire Suppressor is an improvement over conventional fire extinguishers.First off, it leaves no mess. Rather than firing chemical foam or powder, the Maus shoots a non-toxic potassium-based smoke, which snuffs the fire out by interacting with oxygen in a way that makes combustion impossible. The potassium smoke is safe to breathe, will dissipate on its own, and leaves behind no residue. Furthermore, as long as the potassium smoke is present over a fire, the fire cannot restart; it is chemically impossible.

2024 Core77 Design Awards Editors Choice Prize - Exit The Rat Race by Easton Nguyen

18 June 2024 @ 12:45 pm

Exit The Rat Race is a speculative design project by Easton Nguyen for The Ohio State University questioning the habits of irrational spending in modern society. The project offers an inherent criticism of our capitalist system, as each piece calls into question various assumptions held and decisions made as we go about our daily life as consumers. The added transactional friction embedded in the products is enough to cause a temporary pause, or at least slow down the pace of consumption in modern society. The project is very well executed, from concept to research to modeling, and includes a dedicated web site and a compelling video summary. In a poetic gesture, the concepts were promoted using a paid online advertising campaign coinciding with Black Friday, 2023, a quasi-holiday and
