Squander-less Seating

Squander-less Seating

As you might’ve guessed from the name, the Economical Chair was designed to minimize industrial waste. The calculated design enables production of 4 chairs per 4′ X 8′ international standard plywood board with no losses! For its curved seat and back, mass production of these simple shaped standard chairs can be achieved through a plywood bending technique. The result is cool, clean, conscious style!

A Foldable Chair like never before

A Foldable Chair like never before

Now before you plop your tushie on this chair, let me warn you. It isn’t for sitting. But you can admire all you like. Maybe click a few selfies with it, if you’re into that kind of thing. Pop Up Furniture is an inspiring, interactive, and fun installation by Austrian visual designer Liddy Scheffknecht. It’s amazing how one can fit so much into a piece of corrugated cardboard so thin! What the heck, maybe I’ll click a couple of selfies with it too!

Think out of the box. Live within it

Think out of the box. Live within it

Modularity is DEFINITELY in. Look at Phonebloks (Google Project Ara), or even IKEA’s furniture. We are an indecisive species. Needs keep changing, wants keep changing. Design should accommodate for them. The Elements Living Cube was designed keeping in mind modularity, but also the fact that everything you need can be designed to fit into a single unified cuboidal space. The cube is designed to “creates space for things you’d like to see, and storage for the things you don’t”.

Ergonomic Bumrest!

Ergonomic Bumrest!

I’m convinced that beanbags are secretly really hungry monsters. I sit on them and within ten minutes, I’ve sunken in as if it were trying to swallow me. Now while that can get annoying, the actual problem I face is a backache because of the bad posture I end up in. The PUFFi is a delightful little beanbag with an extra layer of padding that not only gives the bag much more character, but makes for better sitting. The layer of padding is removable, for the people who want to be swallowed whole by their furniture. The choice is yours!

Stitch Without the Kitsch

Stitch Without the Kitsch

The Stitch chair transforms a 2D single sheet of aluminum into 3D situational seating with a simplistic yet sophisticated system of folds and carefully placed cuts. Once the aluminum sheet has been shaped, soft felt is applied and held in place with vibrant stitching that adds a pop of color and warm, hand-crafted appeal in contrast with its stark shell. See it in the making after the jump!

Organized Chaos in the Office

Organized Chaos in the Office

If you’re trying to figure out the pattern of the Ishi desk’s many legs… don’t waste your time! The algorithm: randomness. Unplanned is IN! First, points were randomly placed on the base, and then again on the underside plain of the surface. Wood rods were then connected to these points arbitrarily, forming the irregular base. Despite its slapdash aesthetic, the result is surprisingly sturdy!

A Modern Throne

A Modern Throne

Yo Ito’s Linito chair is imagined as a sort of modern “royal throne” for the everyday household. Its sharp geometries highlight the robust shape and material strength of the folded laser-cut steel sheets that form the chair and stool combination. The rigor of the metal is lightened and softened by a variety of colorful finishes and eco-friendly fabric cushions. Get it here!

Them for Us

Them for Us

The latest addition to DesignByThem’s timber range, “Them Chair” is a modern interpretation of the enduring furniture designs of the 1960s. Though inspired by a time when furniture was built to last, it is constructed with the latest technology to reinterpret the design into a reduced form. Combining a classic aesthetic with sustainable living, it is constructed from dense FSC timber ensuring it stands the test of time. Better yet, it can be flat-packed and assembled by the user- functions to the global economy, yet uncommon in a product with this level of craftsmanship.

Change in Equilibrium

Change in Equilibrium

Inspired by the literary work of Paulo Coelho, the Animada chair is the sculptural genius of designer Eduardo Benamor Duarte that channels the animistic belief that every non-human form has a spiritual essence. The sequential array of identical ribs gradually rotate from each other to creates a visual illusion of changing shape. The resulting aesthetic is is at once animate with movement and suspended in equilibrium.

Petra Salarić’s Z Chair is proof there’s space for art in everything we do, no matter how simple. Named for the characteristic Z shape of its sides, the unique form provokes pondering its construction despite being composed of a minimum of overall material. With a simple contrast of color and shape, users won’t just see a chair as a chair, but a thoughtful combination of purposeful pieces.
