80 Cubed Creations

From Cubed Cross Chairs to Rubik's Cube Alarm Clocks

— January 19, 2010 — Art & Design
A cube is such a visually pleasing shape. Cubed creations extend to every area: ice cubes, rubik’s cubes, furniture, computers, jewelry, and many more. There are many pretenders to the thrown-things that carry the name cube, but are not shaped correctly, such is the prevalence of a cube.

Be it design, technology or food, crazy cubed creations can be found in all. Click through this cluster of innovations made in the shape of a three dimensional square, and you will see that almost anything can be made to fit inside a cube.
