The "Best of the Best" of Modern 3D Design

I was looking at some product designs today (mobile phones & home electronics mostly), and I figured it would be really interesting to have a thread all about "The Best of Current 3D Design".

So whatever it is that interests you - 3D designed buildings, furniture, cars, boats, bikes, personal electronics, childrens' toys or other 3D designed objects & products - post an image of the design in this thread, and explain briefly why you think the design is "great".

I'll start with this Swedish Fire Extinguisher designed by Lars Wettre and Jonas Forsman, called "Firephant":

http://www.firephant.com/#!home



The people who designed this have taken a pretty boring, ordinary object like a "fire extinguisher" and turned it into something new, and much more interesting to look at.

Its a simple design, yet fresh at the same time, and it turns the fire extinguisher into a more beautiful object to have around your kitchen or garage.

I like the simplicity and elegance of the "Firephant".

Is this purely for designs that made it to production stage, or does it include concept designs that never made it into the real world?

It doesn't matter whether the design was actually "produced" in the real world, or whether it stayed a "design concept" that exists only as a virtual CAD design.

If you think it is "Good 3D Design", then post it!


Here's one more "Red Dot" Award Winner. This time, a minimalist "Capsule Coffee Maker" by Swiss company "Delica":

nice

I want to post up a render of a 3D designed red glossy sphere in white environment.

"It's a sphere"

so much minimalism, so elegant
It does what it was designed for so perfectly without needing anything else

You can post whatever you want, as long as its cool, and designed with 3D software.

Maybe try a glossy blue Taurus on a black&white checkerboard plane?

Personally i think that that fire extinguisher was looking quite ridiculous - hope that Lars Wettre and Jonas Forsman will forgive me. Iím just imagining a poor old lady being in a burning room with such a thing... at least she can enjoy the ďcoolĒ design in her last minutes, and Wettre & Forsman need a very good lawyer.

Also that capsule coffee thing is looking more like a shoe box - ok, a dripping shoe box. What exactly is cool about that? Isnít the shoe box more original, and therefore much cooler? And you can keep your instant coffee in there when itís really a desire.

Is there anyone that can help me create something like this?
