The Roly-poly Pod

The Roly-poly Pod

Designed specifically for use in airports, the Slater lounge applies the best of biomimicry to create a personal, relaxing and private sanctuary while you wait for your flight! Inspired by the slater bug (more widely known as the roly-poly), each lounge has wireless internet access, power sockets, a luggage lock, and even an alarm clock so you don’t miss your flight. Forget about the airport, I want it to keep my annoying coworkers out!

Repurposing done right!

Repurposing done right!

One of the most abundant and yet easily forgotten objects, the shipping pallet can be found in all corners of the world… many of which are neglected, or disposed of after use. The Re-Stacked Lounger breathes new life into old pallets, repurposing them into a lightweight mobileseating structure. Though unrecognizable from its original form, each lounge maintains the character and patina of the material for a naturally aged aesthetic!

Carbon Creature Stool

Carbon Creature Stool

The Red Dot Award winning Plum Stool’s swift, aerodynamic form emulates natural, organic style in modern carbon material. Though delicate looking, the logical structural geometry and material quality together make it not only strong but incredibly light. To highlight this, the design’s name is a derivative of the Spanish word “pluma” which means “feather.”

Pull and voila! Stool!

Pull and voila! Stool!

Gotta love everything about the latest seating design by Benjamin Kicic! The Pull Stool is flat-pack ready and can be collapsed and opened anytime you need it. Just pull the cord to open it, or release it to make it flat. Its awesome, minimal aesthetic is shaped perfectly to comfortably nestle your buns!

The Flux Table

The Flux Table

The intricate geometry of the Flux table is derived from “Toranj,” a mathematical pattern used in Iranian architecture that generally appears as a radial effect in a rhomboid contour. The resulting structure is a three dimensional extension of the pattern, with legs that appear to drip from the convergence points of the base pattern. Though its inspiration is rooted in tradition, the form and color palette are ultramodern and even a tiny bit gothic.

Simple Made Better

Simple Made Better

If this chair looks familiar, it’s because it’s seemingly similar to the iconic Eames DCM chair that’s been a staple since 1946. Called the NoCo2 chair, it too will cradle you in a comfortable position, and also uses rubber shock mounts to buffer movement. Instead of new rubber, however, it repurposes old scrap tires to cushion both the back and seat. Unlike the Eames, extra tensioned padding is given to the seat for a “floating” effect, more comfort, and a cool modern aesthetic!

Mesmerizing Marble

Mesmerizing Marble

The ONDA marble bench is born from the desire to minimize material waste by using modular sections that aren’t instantly recognizable as similar. Cut from the same block, each “wave” is just alike with the same dimensions. Reversing the pattern with every other one being turned the opposite direction creates a visual illusion of woven complexity when it’s rather simple!

The Skinny on Furniture

The Skinny on Furniture

Nir Meiri’s new Slim collection features furniture and light objects that follow the same skinny morphology. Users can admire the traditional construction through exposed joints and visible connections between the raw wood legs and tabletops. A perfect compliment to the minimal table structures, desktop lamps adapted specifically for the series give the illusion of continuation in the legs and expand upwards to illuminate the surface.

Fiber Logic

Fiber Logic

Proposed for NYC’s historical Battery Park, the ALIS bench serves as both commodity and art. Lightweight & durable, the ergonomic sections are constructed through the process of renewable resource plastic injection molding, common in the structuring of urban playground equipment. Using unique “fiber logic” reinforcement, ALIS efficiently redistributes external forces through its composite skin system. As night falls, each section illuminates from within to reveal a beautiful web of the fibrous internal strands.
