Barry is an industrial design concept for an imaginary product, which is nothing more than an external touch bar. The project was created and shared by Alex Pluda. I have been using the new MacBook Pro for the past 5 months and I got used to the Touch Bar. That doesn't mean that I think it is amazing, it works. I got a few misses when I try to tap delete. Maybe because I am a person that makes tons of mistakes. That aside, I think there are some interesting uses. Sketch and Photoshop are good examples for me. Barry is basically a touch bar you can use it as an external device. I really don't know how useful it is but it was interesting enough that I had to share it here with you. barry is a imaginary product that aims at helping any creative by speeding up their work. It is my first attempt to create a realistic and tangible product. Hope you will like it! Industrial Design Concept Alex Pluda is an interaction designer from London, UK.

Being on-the-go is something we all strive for and being able to be mobile for all occasions is an addition as well. Imagine having a portable screen? We are taking a look at industrial design of a monitor concept named: L-Rod. Coming with a minimal bezel and a curved display, this concept is aiming with a single USB-C cable to both be used as power and image data. It’s an interesting approach for an external screen, what do you think? Designed by Hyunsu Park, he is an industrial designer over at the Kookmin University, Seoul in Korea. Hyunsu focus his work also in product design and UI/UX. Let’s keep an eye on him for his future projects.
We would like to share this industrial design by Clement Dauchy about a cycling navigation called: Orion. What’s interesting about this project is that we get to follow his process from the sketching, industrial design, packaging and the UI/UX from the product. Impressive work I have to admit and I would love to see something like Orion in action and see how the UI will react in a live environment with cars and streets all around. Published on Behance is the work from Clement Dauchy who is an industrial/product designer based in San Francisco, USA. Currently working at Astro Studios, Clement works on personal concepts after finding problems in his daily life. Looking forward to see more of him in the future.
I think most of us shared our love for gradients. As a designer, I do! What if it shares the time through a gradient on a beautiful watch?! This is the product design we are sharing today named: the Hidden Time Watch. It’s a play on the colour contrast of the gradient to tell the time, it’s quite a genuine concept. It almost feel like an optical illusion and I think it’s such a cool factor. Currently on Kickstarter, the watch is unisex and comes in three colours including rose gold, black, and white. Published via Kickstarter, this is a design by Jiwoong Jung and according to him: "“My research on how to naturally pass time began with how hiding occurs in nature, which led me to one of the best known examples––the chameleon’s protective color. Their defense mechanism is a kind of optical illusion, but a simple and effective way to have two things together naturally when superimposed". Hidden Time's watch face features a beautiful gradient display under a crystal covering where numbers are firmly printed. As hours pass, the hour gradient disc rotates and “hidden time” is revealed.
With how technology has been shifting to portable devices for your viewing entertainment, do you still see a place for a TV in your living room? Does the concept of a living room still exists? We are sharing this industrial design by Kwanjun Ryu about a Hide and Show TV concept named: Atelier.

Published via Behance, this is the work from Kwanjun Ryu who is an industrial designer from Seoul, Korea. Focusing his work also into interaction design and UI/UX, Ryu has won many awards including the Design Membership by Samsung. ATELIER TV is new generation of personal TV design that specialized in audio function.

I think I’ve mentioned it before but I am a huge fan of the Nike brand. I just love how they experiment all the time with their products and material. And at the same time it’s great to see designers going down this path as well. Let’s take a look at this concept by Joseph Cooper of a Nike Advanced Training Jacket. What’s particular from this concept is the use of battery (for charging) and sensors for tracking the performance of the athlete. The attention to the details are spot-on and I can’t wait to see more from Joseph in the near future. Published on Behance is the work from Joseph Cooper who is an indstrial designer working now at Black & Decker. There isn't much about him online but what you found is definitely worth a look. It's really great to see Joseph experiment with another category like fashion for example but at the same time with also a practical aspect. Hyperion is a system of intelligent textiles and electronic components which work together to give athletes the ability to customize and adapt any garment to their needs. The jacket was designed to regulate body temperature during everyday athletic training, as well as to help athletes track and improve their performance over time.
We’ve seen tools like the Wacom and even the Touch Bar from the MacBook Pro to somehow increase our productivity and workflow. They both have their pros and cons but I would an issue I had with the Wacom for example was its size especially when you think of working on-the-go or in a coffee shop. How about we rethink it a little. Let’s take a look at this editing tablet product design concept named: Kontrol by Jonny Tran. With a minimal approach, I can’t help to enjoy the idea of having your tablet separated in different components. It’s quite neat! Published via Behance, this is the work from freelance designer named Jonny Tran based in Jönköping, Sweden. There isn’t much more information about Jonny but we know that he’s studying in Industrial Design and we shall look forward to see more of him in the near future. Kontrol is a sketch tablet that is designed for video and photo editors in mind.
Recently, we witness the launch of Nintendo’s latest with their new console named: Switch. With the trend about VR, what if Nintendo took the turn into this technology? What it will look like? Will it stand against the competition? Well, Antoine Beynel took a stab at a industrial design concept and let’s give it a look. Inspired by the Nintendo Switch, we can see how this could actually work with what will be on the market soon. What do you think? Published on Behance , we are taking a look at the work from Antoine Beynel. He is an industrial designer currently based in Seattle, WA, USA. He specialized his work on industrial design, product design and branding; his work has been recognized by many awards like the CES innovation award and more.
MINUS-8 is a industrial design and product design project share by Brett Lovelady on his Behance profile. There are so many things to love about this project and the fact it's from 2 years ago is even more interesting for me. The watch brand was created by Astro Studios designed to express the things that make the West Coast so special: Free thought, pure form, and always living on the leading edge of America. The outcome is a truly beautiful watch with a mix of style and function well balanced out. Another important thing for me is that as the fad for smartwatches are sort of passing or settling we see that the classic wristwatch has a place in the market, even if it's just for style. The progressive, layered construction makes MINUS-8 as future-focused in its aesthetic as it is in its ethos. The MINUS-8’s brand is inspired by californias eight-hour distance from Greenwich Mean Time. We believe America’s West Coast culture gives us the freedom to be innovators and change-agents. The progressive, layered construction makes MINUS-8 as future-focused in its aesthetic as it is in its ethos. Product Lineup Since launching MINUS-8 in 2014, they’ve created 5 full lines of watches as well as a collection with another native San Francisco apparel brand, NICE Collective. With a new brutalist aesthetic, established Japanese movements, space age details, and best-in-class materials, MINUS-8 represents a new standard within the category.

We started Abduzeedo with the mission of sharing everything that inspires us. We focus heavily on digital design but more and more we try to feature product design. When I say product design I am trying to say, real physical products. Perhaps the best term should be industrial design. We are also reviewing more products/gadgets. With that in mind we will start sharing some of the devices that are in our wishlists or that we have already gotten. For this post I will share some simple, yet awesome, products that can give remote control of your house. From doorbell with cameras, to wifi enabled washer and dryer, there's a plethora of products that can make your place feel automated. The best thing is that the prices of this products are also going down. Some are still a dream for me, but outlets and lights that can be controlled from my phone and personal assistants are quite awesome. In addition to that, for me they also give a nice style because they are great examples of good product design. Product design: house automation

I stumbled across what Honda was working on a new self-balancing motorcycle, it was pretty cool. Seeing this bike got me wanting to surf on the process behind the industrial design work of such concepts. I’ve found this stunning-looking motorcycle concept by Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko. Their concept is about their passion about the Japanese approach to design and it’s quite lovely what they have done. Published via Behance , this is the work from Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko who are based in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Ruling themselves in automotive design, insdustrial design and engineering, you will amazed by the different variety of projects they have worked in team and individually. The Japanese approach to design has always been original, which is the foundation of culture with its art of origami and the samurai spirit. The simplicity and sense of space, and today are recognized in the industrial design of the Japanese brands. But for some reason, this approach is now rarely used in the design of Japanese cars and motorcycles. It felt the impact of the European brands that impose their rules of the game, when an inexperienced user can not tell the Japanese product from the European. It's time to go back to the roots and make Japan great again! Credits Artem Smirnov Vladimir Panchenko
Connected is a product design and industrial design project shared by N U Y N on Behance. The product is an air purifier. The problem they are trying to solve is simple, most people close their windows and use air purification devices when fine dust density are serious. However, experts suggests to open the window for a while to ventilate the air indoor. Despite the suggestion, people still tend to shut their windows to prevent the air from coming. Another interest finding is that people also fail to check the lowest fine dust concentration during the day. That would be me :) N U Y N industrial design solution is quite beautiful and in addition to clear and purify the air it also displays a minimal and elegant look. The coolest thing for me is the way you can make it part of the window. Quite clever. "This device is an installation type air purification. Normally used as a general air purifier, but when needed, this device is installed in a window frame to filter outside air and let out the inside for cleaner air circulation." This industrial design project was shared by N U Y N , a industrial design student and part of Samsung Design Membership in Seoul, South Korea.
