20+ Times We Were Extremely Grateful to Designers
Designers have restless minds and they never cease to surprise us by recreating ordinary items in a more useful way. A tie that has a microfiber lining so you can clean your phone screen, a pen that tells you how many words can be written with it, or a pet relief station at the airport are just some examples of smart things that were made to revolutionize our daily lives.
We at Bright Side applaud innovation and the designers that have managed to improve our everyday lives through their awesome creations.
