Unikátne lampy

Minule som si chcela kúpiť lampu, zaujímavú, funkčnú, ekologickú, lampu, ktorá má “dušu”. Vošla som do obchodu a poobzerala som sa dookola. Nič. Premýšľala som, či je naozaj také zložité vytvoriť niečo iným spôsobom ako sme zvyknutí. Chce to len kreativitu!

Lampy vyrobené z použitých kávových filtrov

Veľa miest po celom svete je plných ľudí, ktorí milujú kávu. Jeden dizajnér z New Yorku zbiera kávové filtre a recykluje ich, aby z nich vyrobil nádherné tienidlá. Vďaka jemným odtieňom kávových filtrov, lampa vydáva príjemné romantické svetlo. Na prvý pohľad by človek nikdy nepovedal, že to sú kávové filtre.

To Oak or Not To Aak? That Is The Question!

image

Wine, vino, vin, or 葡萄酒- no matter how you say it, is recognized worldwide. But its popularity could not have been reached if not for stainless steel. Wine making itself is a tricky and tedious business, with attention to detail and constant monitoring, the introduction of stainless steel into this industry changed everything forever.

image

In the world of wine, and wine-making there are constant arguments about any little thing; from which corkscrew to use, to old world and new world wines, wooden or steel and the newest one-cap or cork? Today we will focus on the argument of wooden or steel-while stainless steel has improved the process of wine-making everywhere in the world through its introduction into its machinery, it has also been the topic of many heated arguments.

image

The arguments are in the style of: taste, time and value it gives or takes away from the wine. Let’s use French Chardonnay as our example to this argument. While many like the traditional oak or “buttery” taste of a traditional Chardonnay, many prefer the citrus; more fruit forward taste a non-oak fermented Chardonnay will have. Many say the use of stainless steel vats lets the grape ferment in a very different manner; some believe the lack of presence of oak lets the natural sweetness or citrus come through, giving it a self identity and not adhering to any from the oak.

Many “old world” vineyards still adhere to tradition, but you cannot argue that since the introduction of stainless steel, “new world” vineyards have been able to expand its product line as well as produce more affordable wines. Stainless steel vats lowered their overhead dramatically, although at first the cost is great, the steel vats outlive their oak barrel or oak vat compatriots.

Steel oak has paved a new era for wine all around the world. Not only has it changed the era of Chardonnay’s but as well as red wine, and sparkling wines. Today, we can find wines from anywhere in the world all thanks to stainless steel vats and its influence in the world of wine. I say thank you, but you may not,- so let’s grab a glass of wine and  let the argument begin.

Liquid Packaging Business That Prospered Without Angels

Shark Tank is an ABC reality show that has attracted millions of viewers worldwide. In Shark Tank entrepreneurs get a chance to pitch their business ideas to a group of venture capitalists and ask for some funding in exchange for a share of their companies. In most cases the entrepreneurs leave the tank with empty pockets, but there was one idea that the sharks would really have wanted.

Copa di Vino is an innovative way to pack wine into a glass. The company holds a utility patent for packing alcoholic beverages into a sealed glass-like plastic container. In other words, the company is the only one in the world who can pack wine in ready-to-drink glasses.

James Martin, the CEO of Copa di Vino went to the tank two times.  In the first time one of the angels Kevin O’Leary offered him a licensing deal including 600,000 dollars for 51 % stake in his utility patent . Martin refused the offer and left empty handed. In the second time he was given a two million dollar evaluation and an offer from O’Leary, Marc Cuban and Robert Herjavec.  That deal was never made and still, the entrepreneur has managed to sell over 15 million glasses and to reach a growth of over 1000 percent.

Liquid packing seems to be a field where businesses compete with patents and design. An example of a creative use of liquid packaging is given by a watch brand Festina. The company has packed its water resistant watches in a plastic bag of distilled water in order to demonstrate the quality of their watches. For details on the brand, please have a glimpse of our former blog on liquid packaging through this link.
