Kinderlite Disposable Campfire Frame and Starter Box

The Kinderlite is a disposable campfire created by Philip John Luscombe from the Northumbria University’s School of Design. Created for exhibition at the Museum of Modern Britain’s (MOMB) “2050 retrospective exhibition on the years 2008-2038”, the product is invented for those who know nothing about survival techniques for them to appreciate the qualities of a campfire. I myself did not know the purpose and qualities of having a campfire. This is maybe because I am not into mountain climbing and camping. However seeing this cute and maybe easy to operate campfire, I may now know the essence of having it, and will eventually learn to appreciate it.

Living lives saturated by technology and longing for something more ‘real’, the young market of 2018 was eager to uptake outdoor pursuits, go on wilderness holidays and reconnect with primordial practices. Kinderlite products have ever since been helping people overcome a lack of confidence and knowledge to answer the ‘call of the wild’.

Building Eco Hotel in a Quarry

Eco luxury hotel in a quarry. Building a hotel in a quarry is such a great idea for an architect. Nobody wants to use areas that have been destroyed already by humans. However, the firm Atkins didn’t think it this way. In fact, they positively designed the proposed Songjiang Hotel that will be placed in a 100-meter-deep quarry. Another great feature with the hotel is that it will use geothermal energy to power up its electrical supply and heating system. Aside the geothermal energy, the quarry itself is also a good source of heat control and shelter from the environment. With its waterfalls and underwater aquarium, there’s no doubt that it can be the next hottest tourist destination in China.
