Studio Mango

Posted on February 19, 2008 Under Design

The modern design aesthetic has influenced a lot of everyday objects: furniture, lighting…nursing beds. Two years ago Paul Hendrikx and Frank Hanssen, the Dutch designers over at Studio Mango (Mixed Art and eNGineering…O), took on a project for Schell Industries and created an ergonomic rolling bed for nursing homes in Belgium and the Netherlands. We don’t suspect anyone reading this will need one in the near future, but you should note some of the other designs from their studio: a retro-inspired bicycle, super-slim bathroom scale, and an electric vehicle recharging station premiering in Rotterdam. What may be the coolest filling station ever, the NGR spot looks like a giant USB hub with a photovoltaic disk on the top to charge your battery in under an hour.
