Sweeping Your Junk Under the Table

Sweeping Your Junk Under the Table

This table by Quentin Vaulot and Luiza Barroso attempts to visualize the creative process as it progresses from chaos to order.  Designed for creative professionals to store materials, notes, and tools underneath, the top surface upsets our often too linear thinking.  Esoteric design concepts aside, the utility of the table’s network of caging just begs to be filled with a trove of modern gadgets, if not the tangle of cords that go with them.

Float on to Sleep

Float on to Sleep

This design was inspired after Max Longin, mathematician and designer, had been sitting on a suspension bridge and noticed the nice, calming movement the bridge produced-a perfect sensation to fall asleep to. Float is held in place by four stainless steel cords that are connected to a frame of wooden rods and steel bows which can support a weight of up to 2645 lbs.

Ladders in Home Libraries Done Right

Ladders in Home Libraries Done Right

If you’ve even been to any huge public or University library, you’ve probably seen shelves that seemingly climb to the ceiling with rail ladders the only way to get to the top. It’s a very learned look that I’d like to achieve but my house barely has any room for any of that. The Matching Tree furniture system is just my ticket.

Bangin' Music Parties Coming to a Spot Near You

Bangin’ Music Parties Coming to a Spot Near You

The PodSpot is one large industrial sized speaker system designed for your wee iPod – or any other Mp3 player for that matter. It’s splash proof and designed to be rugged enough for outdoor events. Surprisingly it’s battery powered pushing a multitude of tweeters, horns and two 10″ subwoofers good enough for 24 hours. If the 115 db don’t attract enough attention, I’m sure the sight of 50 people dancing their asses off will.

The Rainbow Connection

The Rainbow Connection

I’m not talking about the song Kermit sings, but about the colorful design by Christian Flindt – Parts of a Rainbow. These modular stackable chairs were not created to just stack on top of each other, but were designed to stack sideways. By stacking them sideways, the chairs can then be used as a colorful bench. Parts of a Rainbow are certain to be the most admired and talked about item at your next friendly gathering.

Sitting On A Bird's Nest

Sitting On A Bird’s Nest

If you have an affinity for organic yet geometric shapes, this chair should tickle your fancy. The X Lounger is based on a single ray, traced along a periodic double curved surface. Its close resemblance to China’s Bird’s Nest Stadium is a testament to how smart and functional this form is. Strong yet flexible without looking harsh and man made.

Assemble and Sit

Assemble and Sit

Flat pack chairs aren’t anything new but this transparent plastic chair by Taiani Vincent uses no glue or nails. It’s just a matter of lining up notches from 3 separate pieces. Your body weight is the last component that adds stability to it. It may not be the most comfortable chair but a lot easier to haul around to activities like, waiting in line for the new iPhone.

Worlds Longest Table for all Cultures

Worlds Longest Table for all Cultures

Architects always seem to be dreaming of the world’s tallest buildings, even though most people who’ve ever lived or worked in one will likely tell you they hate it. So it would not come as much of a surprise to learn that it is an architectural firm, UNStudio, behind the world’s longest table for all cultures. What is surprising however is that they managed to make it look quite down to earth considering its impressive dimensions.
