IKEA wowed the world with common sense design when the Wireless Charging Collection was revealed earlier this year . In a time when people are so reliant on their smart phones and other electronic devices, many are clamoring for the opportunity to make life easier with a lamp that can passively charge those gadgets wirelessly. In a press release , IKEA has announced that the first products in the Wireless Charging Collection will be available in select U.S. stores in late spring of this year. The lamps and other accessories range in price from $9.99 to $119, representing a variety of styles. In addition to furniture and lighting pieces, IKEA’s wireless line also includes a number of USB ports, which are essentially little plugged-in platforms that allow a user to charge their smartphone by setting it down on the charging pad, making is faster and more convenient than fiddling with a charging cable.

Comments Off on The Whirlers: A Colorful Wind Turbine Installation for Fresh Kills Park

Whirlers is project by Caterina Tiazzoldi and Eduardo Benamor Duarte  that proposes building a large cluster of colorful wind turbines at Fresh Kills Park in Staten Island. The project is part of the Land Art Generator Initiative  exhibition, which opened in October at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art. The Whirlers design is based on the  Darrieus , a popular vertical-axis wind turbine. Tiazzoldi and Benamor Duarte conceived of the project as a sort of “whirling artificial forest” of 10,000 colorful turbines that would give visitors the experience of walking amidst a spinning forest. The Land Art Generator Initiative is a design contest that challenges designers to come up with innovative public art installations that produce clean energy. Tiazzoldi’s and Benamor Duarte’s Whirlers project provides a dynamic landscape for visitors to the park to interact with. The turbines vary in height and color, responding to the topography of the site. + Caterina Tiazzoldi + Eduardo Benamor Duarte The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
