An Element of Urban Agriculture

An Element of Urban Agriculture

Following the trend of urban agriculture, the Plame coffee table plays double duty as both a surface to rest objects in the living area and a place to grow herbs and plants inside the home. Its subtle curves and fertile functionality bring femininity and life to any modern interior.

I call this a School-Stool

I call this a School-Stool

As kids in kindergarten, we would place our chairs upside down on our desks at the end of the day. To make it easier for the cleaning staff to sweep the mess we’d made all day. Now, while most children don’t go beyond three and a half to four feet, stacking chairs sounds like a good practice to get kids to understand how stack-ability works. The stackstool is a colourful, child-friendly stool that stacks easily.

Stylish Meets Space-Saving Stool

Stylish Meets Space-Saving Stool

More often than not, folding functionality means a sacrifice in aesthetics for many objects including bikes, tables, and seating. The Tension Stool, however, finds that harmonious sweet spot between folding ability and style. Its minimal yet effective construction is at once sculptural and useful for supplementary seating that can be stowed away with a simple collapsing of its 3 legs. To get it out of the way, just slide it under the bed or sofa!

This Dresser is Hiding Something

This Dresser is Hiding Something

Like his Black Scars Cabinet, designer Alon Dodo’s Secret Dresser is a thought-provoking piece with a bit of mystery and dark playfulness. What appears to be a straightforward (albeit beautiful) mixed wood dresser holds a secret within the surface of its top. Hmmm.. .can you tell what it is?! Hit the jump to find out —>

From Flat to Flex

From Flat to Flex

At first glance, it might look super rigid… but take a seat and you’ll find the Flexi chair to be quite bum-friendly! Crafted from wood and aluminum, its seat flexes to the user’s unique body shape before popping back into place when they get up. It blurs the lines between what we think LOOKS comfortable and what IS comfortable.

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!
