In Case Of Emergency – Break Door

In Case Of Emergency – Break Door

The X-gate addresses one of the biggest situations faced in the aftermath of an earthquake: entrapment. Typically, doors are heavy and main doors are dead-bolt heavy for a reason. The X-gate’s design is such that it can be shattered with ease, thus aiding rescue operations. I suppose its ideal for cities that live in the earthquake zone.

Goose Down & Quilted Sofa

Goose Down & Quilted Sofa

Brilliant! I absolutely adore this big, cushy, comfy, plushy sofa from Gervasoni. The Nuvola collection consists of a lounge chair and sofa from a multilayer and solid wood frame, upholstered with differentiated density polyurethane foam covered by a goose down and polyester fibre quilting. All this and the covers are removable for easy washing.

Jony Ive & Marc Newson Team Up for (RED)

Jony Ive & Marc Newson Team Up for (RED)

Iconic designers Jony Ive and Marc Newson aren’t two names I expect to see together on the same by-line but there they are on a one-of-a-kind desk machined from a single piece of aluminum. It almost seems like the perfect marriage – Newson’s typical swoopy/curvy lines in lieu of anything sharp in one of Ive’s favorite materials. The eye-popping table top grabs most of the attention with its oversized cellular surface pattern.

SLO_Gen Table

SLO_Gen Table

The SLO_Gen Table is a remarkable piece of innovation in the field of furniture design. The organic design is made using HI-MACS and has become the focal point of Gensler’s Los Angeles office lobby! It was designed using the brief – create a piece that can accommodate standing and sitting space for guests and storage for the firm’s design publications. Solid Surface HI-MACS is the table’s predominant surface material and looks divine with the use of wood. It sports an awesome curvature.

Cube

Cube

Within architect Igor Sirotov’s bare concrete and glass Cube is a world just waiting to be brought to life by people, food, wine, and entertainment. The restaurant’s sexy interior is defined by tables and lounges that are at once sectioned and separate, yet open and visible to giving the atmosphere an elite, club-like vibe. At the center of the design are living water features and trees that contrast the otherwise stark interior.

Room Division Done Right

Room Division Done Right

As urban living faces space challenges, this design team has a good solution to make most of the limited carpet area that your home may have. Cook&Bath is a clever construction and room division that allows you to make the most of the space restrictions. In a way, it eliminates an entire wall and uses a centralized bathroom-shower space as the room division. An interesting way to demark the kitchen, living and bedroom space!

DO let your eyes deceive you!

DO let your eyes deceive you!

Move around the Eye+ window and you’ll soon forget that it’s not a window at all! The clever screen doesn’t just display favorite outdoor landscapes, but also uses a camera and sensor system that detect the viewer’s motion to shift the image depending on their perspective. Move to the right to see what’s hidden behind the left border or move closer to enlarge the image and vice versa! See it in action —>

Only My Personal Space

Only My Personal Space

Atmos is a must-have desk for those who prefer their own personal space in a crowded office or dorm. The design takes inspiration from Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic structures and Do Ho Suh’s fabric cladding sculptures. What I love about the desk is the cozy enclosure and private space that it creates. It works better than cubicles and monolithic room dividers. Researchers too agree that a personal haven reduces stress and anxiety amongst workers and students.

The Bathing Sphere

The Bathing Sphere

While the lines between the bathing space and the bedroom are getting blurry by the day, its great to see how designers are modifying their approach towards the task of daily ablutions. We have here the Bathsphere, which is a glass-bubble kinda suspended sphere. It allows you to create your own mood and unwinding space. You can simulate rain; change the temperature inside the ball, humidity, light, sounds and even smells. Pretty awesome!

Musical Stairs

Musical Stairs

Leander Angerer and David Ross’ revamp of this late Victorian staircase introduces subtle modern touches to accentuate the classical style. Tennis racket string sewn into the handrail replaces the banisters while a floating marble plinth replaces the first step. Other extraneous parts were taken away and hand-modified to give it a lighter, renewed aesthetic. Not only nice to look at, the strings can also be plucked, turning the house itself into a giant musical instrument!

The Island Kitchen Is Finally Here

The Island Kitchen Is Finally Here

Space crunch + kitchen has always equalled to a compromised kitchen. Realistically speaking, designer Massimo Facchinetti has nailed it with his Ecooking vertical kitchen. This single module kitchen is a hub for sustainable cooking. The technologies of the project highlight energy-saving systems, and come integrated with an internal retrieval of energy system. This is achieved thanks to the close proximity and interaction of appliances with each other and the exchange of heat and moisture.
