Art Lebedev Dispensum

“Design will save the world” is the motto of the Art Lebedev design studio in Moscow and it seems that this design group intends on going about this through the use of humour, semiotics and practical application in their products. A motto like this is open to interpretation, of course, but we wanted to know exactly what Art Lebedev meant when it was chosen. Some recent product launches include the Dispensum tape dispenser, a sleek and simple item made from one strip of metal and heavy enough to stay put, and the Vilcus Plug Dactyloadapter, which is basically a place to stick your fingers, since sockets are never big enough."

I love the Dispensum, its exactly the type of industrial design that appeals to my sense of taste... simple and beasutiful (and apparently its going to save the world).
