Origami masks are handmade in San Francisco with ethically sourced materials that are both zero-waste and sustainable. The masks are free of harsh, toxic materials like plastic, elastic, and metal, making them extra durable for hot wash and dry cycles. In addition to their green design, they are 100% biodegradable and compostable. After prototyping over 25 different cotton mask variations, the designer selected the most efficient design to mass produce as well as the easiest for people to sew at home. The mask pattern was immediately made available for free online and has since been downloaded over 7 million times from around the world. The mask was noted by USA Todayas one of the top 10 masks of 2020.

This design for this new generation of Zero Halliburton aluminum cases represents a radical rethink of aluminum luggage. Unlike a molded plastic shell, an aluminum case is a formed object. There are opportunities in working with the material, and there are limitations. The designers pushed the limitations to achieve a beautiful, iconic, and sculptural form. The Pursuit line takes advantage of the material qualities to create a stronger and more structural case, offering much-improved durability and protection. In addition, all touchpoints and elements of the cases were thoughtfully designed and engineered to deliver luxury and improved functionality.

Visby Medical’s COVID-19 Test is an instrument-free single-use PCR (polymerase chain reaction) device that fits in the palm of your hand. It delivers near 100% accuracy in under 30 minutes. User-centric design helped ensure that it is easy for anyone to operate it. It can be used almost anywhere; it only requires a conventional power source. With the versatility to rapidly identify any number of serious infections (bacterial, viral, fungal) without sacrificing speed for accuracy, its impact goes far beyond today’s pandemic. This will have a significant impact on a doctor’s ability to have PCR-accurate data during a patient’s appointment.

The Burch Barrel is a combination grill, firepit, and smoker that allows for open-fire cooking with wood or charcoal. Inspired by Santa Maria-style grilling, the tripod suspension system lets users elevate the lid and/or the cooktop above the flame to adjust the heat, tend the fire, or take their food out of a flare-up. The barrel’s double-walled construction channels air into the bottom, fueling the fire and keeping the outer surface safe to touch. Its tripod design allows the barrel to be used on uneven ground, making it perfect for outdoor use.
