SPOT: a Creative Modular Furniture for Little Ones

Poland-based designer Wiktoria Lenart has created Spot, a furniture collection designed specifically for little ones. The design is clean, functional and, most importantly, modular, so the furniture can grow and change with the child. Slim and light, SPOT’s blond wood and subdued colors create a neutral pallet that is easily accessorized. The collection includes a lofted bed, single bed, a desk, a wardrobe, a dressing table and more that can be mixed and matched. All of the pieces in the collection include clever storage which delights parents, for example the hidden wardrobe with deep drawers under the bunk bed. At the desk you can hang organizers, blackboards or different reminders. On the dresser there can be decorations or felt flower pots. And our favorite piece is the Tipi trolley, which can be magically transformed into an indoor tent by simply using a sheet or decorated with the hanging felt containers for quick storage or even be wheeled into the living room for a sleepover. Watch the video for more details.

Copic Smart Marker: One Marker with Endless Color

Copic Smart Marker is an interesting marker concept which works like an ink printer with replaceable cartridges of cyan, yellow and magenta. Unlike a limited, space-consuming set of colored markers, it gives users endless color options in one compact device. Connecting with smartphone with bluetooth, user can select the color they want and draw away. Quite smart right? The only problem I can think is the color switch. For example, if you choose yellow and then want to draw some blue lines, because some ink still is in brush, the line would be a bit green-ish. Not sure how the designer will fix this problem.
