Feet With Sole and Soul

Feet With Sole and Soul

The thing about Steve Jobs is that although a genius, his barefoot days didn’t add to his creativeness (Read his book!). If anything, I’m sure they caused him sore, calloused feet. So how about being a new-age genius with a kind heart? Guanaco Shoes is the brainchild of native Argentinean designer Maximo Cornet who roped in his pal Manuel Padro to create the a new shoe design, that promises to blow your socks off!

The Modern Space Age Stool

The Modern Space Age Stool

With it’s aerodynamic shape, winged seat and functional rivet accents, the C5 bar stool subtly reminds of aviation, but it also draws inspiration from the iconic Googie architecture of the 1950s. With its exaggerated geometries and spacey shapes, its a quirky addition to industrial-style interiors. Presented in a stark white and natural wood contrast, it’s also sophisticated enough to compliment kitchen islands or the household bar.

Sculptural Semitransparent Seating

Sculptural Semitransparent Seating

Camou is an everyday chair that focuses on variation for the body. Inspired by the posture in horseback riding, as well as textile constructions from architecture, the chair provides flexibility of movement to create a variety of sitting positions well beyond the norm! With its form the result of function, the result is an organic shape enhanced by a “transparent” 3D textile that creates interesting visual effects as the viewer changes perspective. It’s something totally different… DO WANT!

We can use innovations like the Water Pass – a double drain cap that allows you to keep the sink unclogged and drains the water at the same time. Do want!

Paper Light

Paper Light

With the hallmarks of an industrious project, the Muchen Lamp is a creative DIY Lamp that uses wood and cardboard. Both the materials are recyclable and don’t cost an arm and a leg. Keeping this in mind, I think I have suitable place for it on my desk … and I love the red cord, which breaks the monotony of the brown color.
