                                Designer Jeff Sheldon ran into the same dilemma designers, artists, musicians, and anyone else with a perpetually busy work surface encounters. &#8220;Since I spend a lot of time working in my home office, I put a lot of thought into designing my ideal desk setup where I can be productive and stay inspired as I handle the many different parts of running my business. One of the things I always wanted was a central place to hold the small things that constantly cluttered up my desk.&#8221; Sheldon&#8217;s search didn&#8217;t conclude with a purchase, but with the launch of his own design: <a href="https://gathersystem.com/about/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Gather</a>.

“Over the course of 3 years, I worked through dozens of prototypes and sketches to dial in every detail. I went from chopping up rough foam models with a pocket knife all the way to working with industrial design engineers to produce 3D-models and technical drawings that

                                Founded by two former Tumi executives, <a href="https://roamluggage.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">ROAM</a> launches as the first luggage brand introducing a level of made-to-order, online personalization previously unseen, allowing travelers to customize their luggage so they never get lost amongst the procession of me-too designs popping out onto the airport carousel.
Customers are invited to make their ROAM polycarbonate shell (our personal preferred style of luggage to travel with noting polycarbonate’s ability to protect valuables within) case luggage their very own by choosing from a selection of options including outer shell colors, wheel caps, stitching, zipper and zipper pulls, binding, carry-handle, monogram patch and telescoping handle rods. Each piece is assembled in California before shipping in just three business days. “Mass-produced products have lost their appeal to modern consumers who increasingly look for opportunities for self-expression in everything they do. The desire to express their individuality includes their choice in luggage,” says Co-Founder and CEO Larry Lein.

Between the pacific palette of pastels and soft matte surfaces adorning the Permafrost X MINISO collection, each piece invites a curious need to touch, investigate, and use each of the designs, evoking our dormant childhood memories of our favorite playthings. The entirety of the collection – a portable Bluetooth speaker, mushroom-shaped USB memory sticks, wired earphones and headphones, a small desk fan, and perhaps the cutest USB-powered LED desk lamp on two feet – are simple and singular in their function, wonderfully obvious in purpose. Considering the overcomplexity of many devices available today, it’s a welcoming distillation of form in service of enjoyment.

The notes blossom eventually into an expressive full-bodied performance with the deft and expressive precision of turntablism, composed to celebrate the arrival of sakura flowers. Written to showcase the expansive capabilities of <a href="http://www.play-joue.com/en/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Joué</a>, a modular MIDI controller with a polyphonic pressure sensor platform engineered to work with an array of color-coded modules, the song and video are a convincing example of the potential of composing music guided by touch and color.
Born out of a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding phase, the Joué is now represented by a more refined industrial design constructed of wood and metal. The modular MIDI instrument works with graphically-coded and pressure sensitive soft touch elastic “magic” modules, each designed to be quickly switched on and off as needed, replicating an array of instruments, like keyboards, guitar strings, drums pads, or in the case of Senbei, the

                                Whether due to the instability of fledgling careers, or the unexpected shuffle of salad day relationships, it&#8217;s not uncommon for young renters to call numerous addresses &#8220;home&#8221; in just the span of a few years.

The $3.8 Million Karlmann King “Ground Stealth Fighter” SUV

                                We&#8217;re not sure what&#8217;s more audacious, the aggressively chiseled and angular bodywork of the <a href="http://www.karlmannking.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Karlmann King</a> SUV or its nearly $4 million dollar price tag. In either case, despite its stealth visage, the specialty automaker&#8217;s design is meant to be noticed.
Billed as the world’s most expensive SUV, what’s really underneath all that faceted carbon fiber and steel clad-work (available in an optional bulletproof version) is a Ford F550 commercial cab chassis. Imagine architect Kengo Kuma and origami artist Coco Sato given the proverbial keys to design an SUV for likes of Bruce Wayne – unhindered by any modicum of self-constraint and directed by harried visions of the apocalypse – and the 13,000 lbs Karlmann King might be the eventuality. The audacity of the exterior is only exceeded by the ostentatious finish of its interior – a “Night at the Roxbury” outfitted affair that takes opulence to an unprecedented level: reclining lounge

                                Attribute it to the long hours required behind a computer monitor: many within the design industry harbor a strong affinity for <a href="https://design-milk.com/designers-on-holiday/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">getting away to the great outdoors</a>. Maybe it&#8217;s because camping and hiking feeds into the designer&#8217;s proclivity for problem solving, but all within a wholly different context introduced by the elements. Thankfully, the outdoor gear industry has evolved beyond the purely functional options that once defined the category, with a wide selection of stylish outdoor gear designed for adventure&#8230;magnified with adventurous design. Here are some of our current favorites:
Limited Edition Leatherman Signal: If there’s one tool everyone should have in their backpack, car/truck, and at home, it’s a Leatherman.

The New Lincoln Aviator Plugs Into Design and Technology

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/lincoln-aviator-plugs-into-design-technology/lincoln-aviator-12/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/03/Lincoln-Aviator-12-810x488.jpg" alt="The New Lincoln Aviator Plugs Into Design and Technology" /></a>
                                Sometimes a name says it all: the newly unveiled Lincoln Aviator SUV wears its aeronautical influence both in name and across its handsomely streamlined silhouette, bringing along with it plug-in hybrid efficiency and an impressive degree of technological features within.
A few years ago Lincoln unveiled the Continental Concept, a grandiose statement signaling the Ford luxury brand’s intent to redefine its reputation as “Grandpa-esque” into a more contemporary interpretation intended to appeal to a younger and more design-versed generation. The efforts are beginning to pay off, most notably with the gracefully modern design of the new mid-sized Lincoln Aviator at the 2018 New York International Auto Show. The Aviator’s design references both the bio-mechanical wings of a bird and the tapered aerodynamics of a plane in flight. With its noticeable downward roofline tailing fast toward the rear, the confidently horizontal beltline and a mirroring crease immediately underneath

                                You truly haven’t taken a bath until you’ve soaked within an ofuro – the short, steep-sided wooden bathtubs occasionally still found in Japanese homes and ryokans. These short and deep tubs deliver an incomparable sensory experience compared to the shallow styles generally found in American bathrooms. They envelop bathers in a relaxing, neck-deep experience enhanced by subtle aromatics scents released with the addition of hot water. Luxury bathtub manufacturer <a href="https://bit.ly/2p7J5Be"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Aquatica</a> recognizes the traditional design as a perfect template to deliver a technologically and ergonomically advanced update to the body’s call for rejuvenation.
While the Aquatica retains the recognizable aesthetic and dimensional attributes of the traditional soaking tub, the True Ofuro Tranquility Heated Japanese Bathtub is no mere replica. Taking cues from a heating device known

B&O PLAY SS/18 Collection Looks to the Sea

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/bo-play-spring-summer-2018/boplay-ss18-collection-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/03/BOPlay-SS18-Collection-1-810x540.jpg" alt="B&#038;O PLAY SS/18 Collection Looks to the Sea" /></a>
                                The <a href="https://www.beoplay.com/en/landingpages/ss18?" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">B&amp;O PLAY Spring/Summer 2018 Collection</a> is purely an aesthetic update, rather than a technological upgrade. But it&#8217;s surely a lovely refresh – a fashionable nod to the turning of the seasons, transforming the Danish manufacturer&#8217;s premium wireless headphone and two of their portable speakers with two new limited edition colors inspired by the Danish coastline.
The B&O Play’s soothing seaside-inspired Spring/Summer 2018 Collection consists of three designs: Beoplay H4Jakob Wagner’s Beoplay H4 wireless headphones have become an identifiable personal electronics classic, sitting high on many discerning traveler’s wishlists for their functional and fashionable design, good for up to 19 hours of playback. Available now in either Aloe or Steel Blue, we think the H4 takes on a particularly softer personality in the former of its two new colors, accentuating the remarkably soft lambskin leather cups. Beoplay A1 – Designed by Bang & Olufsen’s Cecilie Manz, the

The Makyu FormBox Will Make a Mold Out of Nearly Anything

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/formbox/formbox-with-designs-white/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/03/FormBox-with-designs-white-810x594.jpg" alt="The Makyu FormBox Will Make a Mold Out of Nearly Anything" /></a>
                                Unlike the ever-nascent category of consumer-priced 3D printers, vacuum forming has a long and established history, with casting and moulding machines holding patents since the 1960s. The heat to plastic process doesn&#8217;t require knowledge of 3D modeling software, the materials required are cheap, and replicating three-dimensional objects into molds using sheets of thermoplastic is satisfyingly near instantaneous. But until now, vacuum forming machines were hulking, prohibitively priced, and definitely not intended for small-scale use. The <a href="https://www.mayku.me/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Makyu FormBox</a> has set out to change that.
Founded by Goldsmiths University of London graduates, Ben Redford and Alex Smilansky, the Mayku FormBox began as a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2016. Advertised as an entry-level machine engineered to combine heat with the aid of an attached household vacuum cleaner, the FormBox was conceived as the most affordable and smallest prototyping and mold making vacuum forming machine. Its primary target was designers, individual artists, professional
