Bastien Chapelle created ‘Elmer’ for iRESISTUB, and it’s a looker. It’s sleek, minimalist, and takes up little to no space. When folded, it looks like a small storage cabinet.

Designer Sheng-WenWang gives a classic mosquito swatter an upgrade. Both in looks and functionality.

Let’s be honest, a mosquito swatter is a necessity for some of us. And it’s also an eyesore that is impossible to find when you most need it.

This design, however, turns the whole concept around. Elegant and flower-shaped, the ‘Home Swatter Vase’  zapper from Sheng-WenWang can be held on display in an accompanying vase.

It being a fancy piece of decor also makes it easy to find in a time of crisis. Like when you’re being swarmed by bloodthirsty mosquitoes.

Some people make their own (you can see a lot of interesting creations on this subreddit), some are crowdfunded (like this Wizard Alley book nook from Techlarge), and some you can buy online.

Like this one here. A charming diorama of a peaceful Italian street.
