This wake up alarm makes you drink water! The earlier you want to wake up more you have to drink.

This ‘wake up alarm’ is a calibrated carafe that measures the amount of water to drink before going to bed.

This is James McAdam‘s quirky way to make all of us healthy!



                                              Intruders beware!

This cherry and steel table is for paranoid security seekers.

A ‘safe bedside table’ for the people who admit and for the people who donot  admit that they need some kind of self defence while sleeping.

Here is a club as table leg and top as a shield!

James McAdam is a designer based in UK, (London).
