HeeYong is being featured in several blogs for their rubicks cube mp3 player today, which is quite a cool concept gadget. But once you start surfing their website you find some really neat gadgets.

What makes good technical gadget even better is a cool trendy design, easily to be observed with Apple (non-computer) products. The iPod is not the best portable audio player on the market, but it is nicely designed and pioneered this c1_02300-300.JPGkind of white plastic design.

HeeYong designs products such as the mentioned player, but also nice fruit and vegetable refrigerators, toasters as long with other things. I especially like the toaster design which imitates the sun, because “many kitchens, especially in New York City, do not have windows. The residents rarely see the sun shine in the kitchen even in the daytime”.


One design I especially like is “GINI”, a room air conditioner. My flat has a collection of various gadgets, all of which I hope have a good design. But sadly due to local weather conditions I need an air conditioning unit in every room and air conditioning units just are not pretty. Whereas I would be a “GINI” aircon unit even if I did not need it.

HeeYong is a designer to watch!
