Kitchen Tools that Never Die

What’s great about titanium is that it’s abundant, light-weight, anti-corrosive, and pretty much indestructible. What’s a little perplexing however is that using titanium for just making pens isn’t really doing much justice to the material. Titanium is a wonderful choice of material for products that really push the boundaries of stressful usage, making it apt for items like tools and instruments that get used relentlessly on a daily basis.

That’s why titanium is a perfect material for Feastform’s kitchenware series. Made for rough outdoor usage, but with an elegant style that makes it ideal for use even in the most style-conscious kitchens, Feastform’s spatula and tongs are crafted from Grade 5 titanium, known for its remarkably high strength to weight ratio. The spatula’s handle is wrapped with Technora, a material known to resist heat so well it was used in NASA’s Mars Rover parachute.

Designed with an Origami inspired aesthetic, Feastform’s utensils look wonderful while they do their job. The spatula comes in two sizes and the origami design gives the handle strength, making sure it doesn’t flex. It also helps Feastform’s tongs occupy less space, by allowing them to nest within each other when disassembled. Made to endure the elements outdoors (and therefore indoors too), the tools resist scratches, work under high temperatures, don’t impart an iron taste to the food, are easy to wash and maintain (being rust-proof), and given their flat design, can be packed away easily too inside luggage as well as kitchen drawers.

Unlike most titanium kitchen utensils that only have a titanium coating around a stainless steel body, Feastform’s kitchen apparatuses are crafted completely out of titanium sheets, making them lighter than most, and infinitely stronger. Visually and functionally ideal to be used in the most rustic as well as lavish setups, Feastform’s kitchen tools are designed to last multiple lifetimes, and look good through all of them!

Bring Back Memories. Not Sand.

Ever gone to the beach only to carry half your weight in sand back with you? Beach bags are rather handy and convenient, however, they really love sand. Sand, mud, grit, all of it just gets into all your belongings, forming a lining on the inside of your bag, scratching your expensive sunglasses, creeping into your gadgets, and getting into nooks and crannies… forever.

I honestly didn’t know that there could be something I’d call the ‘perfect beach bag’. Shame on me, I guess, for not having identified this problem before. The Dezzio takes on a complete holistic problem-solving approach, identifying problems large and small with beach bags, and therefore rising above the competition as the most appropriate and functional beach bag ever made. Not only does it rid itself of sand, it shuns water, organizes your belongings, and comes with its own share of delightful surprises that make it the best bag to have outdoors.

The Dezzio’s pièce de résistance is its outer design that comprises a water-repellent fabric, keeping waves, splashes of water, and misty sprays away from your belongings, as well as a sand-exit mesh at the bottom, concealed by a flap. When the flap is opened, any sand that may have gotten into your bag makes its exit through the mesh at the bottom. A few quick shakes and your bag is cleaner, and lighter too!

However, this isn’t all that makes the Dezzio a consciously designed miracle-bag. It compartmentalizes the space inside itself beautifully, making easy-to-reach pockets for everything from magazines, to lotions, to sunglasses, and even comes with a pocket containing a reusable waterproof pouch for your wet beachwear. An electronics pouch on the inside keeps your phone well away from humidity and sand, while the Dezzio even includes 2 USB ports, allowing you to charge your phone and/or tablet within the bag. However, that’s just on the inside. On the outside it has a separate longitudinal pocket for flip-flops, straps for securing your rolled up beach towel, and even an insulated cooler-pocket for your chilled beer or fruit juice. To top things off, the cooler pocket’s zip incorporates a bottle-opener, because innovation literally has no boundaries!

The Dezzio presents itself in three unique styles, united by the same thought-process and features. Having already shipped to over 40 countries, the Dezzio has been one of the rare few products to have received immensely positive feedback, with backers making second and third pledges for the bag. The Dezzio may be the most ideal for the beach, but users are swearing by it, using it for everything from shopping, to picnics, to even the gym… because just like innovation, a good product know no boundaries!

The ‘Forever’ Air Purifier

We’re at that time in our lives where we’re the most aware about the importance of our health, and the importance of design in nourishing our lives. This resulted in a flurry of wonderfully simple products ranging from fitness devices, to thermostats, to air purifiers that not only fulfill their moral duty of keeping our lives healthy/comfortable, but also being visually in harmony with its objectives. We’re much more likely to trust an air purifier that looks pure, rather than rely solely on reviews.

BRID (a twist on the word breathe), is an air purifier designed to look as clean as the air it releases. Simple, and almost meditative in the way it operates, its vertical design is reminiscent of stacked zen pebbles. Designed in three unique visual styles that echo this simplicity and effectiveness, the BRID has a fundamental yet highly innovative mode of operation. It pulls air from the base, and releases it from the top, and the filters sit in between. You can have a BRID comprising anywhere from 1 to 3 filters, depending on how large your space is, or how low the air quality is. Designed to be no bigger than an A4 sheet, the BRID is the only air purifier that doesn’t need filter replacement. Its filters can be reused over and over again, courtesy a patented NanoCeramic Core that was 13 years in development. This filter can be simply cleaned under a running faucet and reused. It also doesn’t produce Ozone, which most UV based purifiers do. As a result, BRID breaks down Carbon Monoxide, other air-borne pollutants (NO2,NOx, Aerosols), as well as attacking bacteria, and trapping allergens in a manner that is the safest for human breathing as well as for the environment.

BRID, or any purifier, is designed for the present and the future because the air we breathe now, is at perpetual risk (Yosemite, California has the worst Air Quality Index in America at a reading of 210). What BRID does is not just purify the air we breathe. It does so without increasing our consumption of resources by making sure we need and use only one filter. It’s designed to be placed anywhere, including inside one’s car, making sure that wherever it is you go, you only breathe the cleanest and purest air.

Alladin’s Magic (self-rolling) Yoga Carpet

This Yoga mat renders the popular catchphrase “they see me rollin” obsolete. Designed with technology borrowed and refined from a child’s slap-on wrist band, the YoYo Mats stay flat when you need them to, and automatically (automagically) roll up neatly when you’re done!

It isn’t as simple as it looks however, say founders Aaron and Yu. They spent several months refining the process till they got it to work like a charm. The result? Bloody impressive! The mat stays absolutely flat when you need it, never dog-earing or folding over and being an annoyance while you’re meditating, exercising, or dancing. Do what you gotta do, and then just flip the mat over and it autonomously rolls up (akin to a yo-yo, hence the name) into a neat little roll that’ll never roll crooked, thanks to its dual rolling band arrangement… which you can then pick up and carry home or dump in the boot of your car! Now if only they made some self-tucking bedsheets…
