How smart is the smart home if nobody can understand it? That's the question that drove Shaun Springer to create Astro, a lighting and audio startup that believes smart home solutions should be as simple as screwing in a light bulb.

Envisioned for millennials who move often, the pieces ship in separate boxes that come with handles so it's easy to transport them from one apartment to the next. When they arrive, assembly takes mere minutes and doesn't require any tools.

Bitonti's studio frequently pushes the boundaries of additive manufacturing—the industry term for 3D printing—by collaborating with other designers and technology leaders. Bitonti designed these rainbow-hued shoes, part his "Mollecule" Shoe Collection, with the help of Adobe (for the necessary software) and Stratasys (for the necessary 3D printing technology).

The Ace Hotel, a small, boutique hospitality chain that was born in Seattle with the goal of filling a niche for low-budget, high-design accommodations that would appeal to the creative, urban set. The hotel's Pacific Northwest roots are evident in the new Southern California location, but the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs is also unmistakably regional in its design.

Indow Windows has a decidedly low-tech alternative for creating a more energy efficient home: custom window inserts that are just as efficient as double-pane windows but at one-fifth the cost, says founder Sam Pardue (a bit of trivia: he's also one of the Lensbaby cofounders). Essentially an acrylic panel wrapped in a compression tube, the window fits pops into the interior of an existing window, forming an air-tight seal.

Architect Jim Garrison of Brooklyn-based Garrison Architects was asked to design a retreat for visiting families on an idyllic lakeside expanse of land at a boarding school for troubled teens, Star Commonwealth in Albion, Michigan. To drastically reduce academic interruption and cut site noise, Garrison decided early on to create an 1,100-square-foot modular building dubbed Koby, with two bedrooms on opposite sides of the structure and a common dining area in the middle “as a therapeutic space for families to gather and eat together.”
