Product designer Liya Marison came up with this imaginative, adaptable and creative product. How great would it of been to have such a toy? I’d of honestly had years of play, the decorating would of been the best bit! Ideal for enhancing a child’s imagination.

Recycled cardboard idea, inspired by pop-up books, “My Space” was designed for small apartments, which lack the space for a dedicated playroom.

Found a possible ‘grown up’ version via Habitables.co.uk, this could be an option—Pop Up Office.

This folding office by Liddy Scheffknech and Armin Wagner is a great example of figuring out ways to rethink the possibilities surrounding shortages of space, mobility and permanence. An office you pack up and fold away, or take with you to your next destination. This pop up office is made simply of cardboard and tape and measures 94 x 275 x 200 cm.

Indian industrial designer Prasanna Sankhe of Hypen studio, has came up with this nifty idea of ‘Indian stretchable watch’ also known as ‘ish watch.’ The watch depicts how Indians view time. Brilliant, could really do with one of these.

A timepiece that depicts the culture’s mentality of time with dark humour, the face of the wristwatch has the numbers slightly shifted from their usual place, making it difficult for the viewer to tell exactly what time it is. the prefix ‘-ish’ gives the time periods a visible ambiguity, the watch is available exclusively through filter.

The more I see the more I want—talk about thinking out of the box! These lights, designed by Jake Phipps, are a fun creative twist on an everyday object. Standing under one of these would make a cool photo!

The Jeeves & Wooster bowler & top hat pendant lights were designed as a playful take on lighting with a real sense of cultural identity. The hat is an object that often associates its wearer with a particular society, heritage or race. The bowler and top hat are classic British cultural icons reflecting a bygone era of imperialism, class divide, and eccentricity.
