This National Geographic cover design cleverly fashions an island out of one of those ubiquitous grocery store bags. Underwater, the massive plastic bag looms representing the 18 billion pounds of plastic waste that finds its way into the oceans.
The 2018 cover image asks, “Planet or Plastic?” A play on the “paper or plastic” option grocery clerks have long asked.
Secret Staircase Storage
What we have here is a very smart use of empty spaces. These stairs open out into drawers and cupboard cubbies. It’s a space-saving solution that took foresight and planning.
Thinking of the dead space under the stairs and making use of it is quite clever. It works great for storing bedding or photo albums. And it is ideal for stashing the children’s toys when guests arrive.
Dripping Red Table
This red table looks like it is dripping wet with paint. The legs are formed by the illusion of paint pouring onto the floor. The creator of this 3-D tableau calls it, “Paint or Die but Love Me,” a title that only adds intrigue to the item.
The artist, John Nouanesing, in all his glossy reflection, brings passion to life.
If this won't help decrease car accidents, then we don't know what will. We are not sure where this was taken and we recommend all countries start designing their traffic lights accordingly.
This traffic light can be used by drivers and by pedestrians. You can predict the light color switch and it might make you think before trying to beat the red light.
Folding Beach Chair
This has got to be the best beach chair ever. It's an aluminum frame (so it's not too heavy to carry), with a padded seat and back. It can comfortably seat two adults, or alternatively three kids (or small-sized adults).
And look at those perfect-sized leg rests. What a great design. Put it in your car boot and leave it there. You won't want to arrive at the beach without it.
