Over the weekend I noticed that we had a high number of visitors coming to us via a post on the brilliant design blog Swiss Miss. We also noticed that the picture the post linked to was from a blog post that somehow got deleted back in January when our site was hacked. We thought it was worth reposting the images as they remain to be some of our favourite desktop designs.

The products were all produced by second year Industrial Design students at the highly esteemed ECAL / University of Art and Design Lausanne in collaboration with Italian design brand Alessi for a project exhibited at Milan Design Week 2011.

Sadly these strikingly simple designs were just prototypes but we live in hope.
