Plugging In A Side Table

Plugging In A Side Table

This is such a “duh” thing to do, I wish I would have thought of it. The Plug-in Side Table is exactly that. It serves the function of a side table or nightstand but you’re supposed to plug it in so it can double as a light.

69 And Then Some

69 And Then Some

The S69 is a molded polyropylene (fancy plastic) set of chairs designed to interlock to one another to form a table or if you wanna be real creative, shelving. The real ace here is the material. It can either be recycled or burnt. The energy released would produce nothing but CO2 and water. Just what we need, more CO2. :/

Rubberized School Desks

Rubberized School Desks

The schools in Mdantsane, South Africa are poorly equipped and lack basic facilities such as chairs and desks which are required to run the schools. With over 7000 students and only 3 schools, the volume of desks to the space available is another key factor to consider. For this reason the design is a combination of both a desk and chair. Each desk is formed from recycled rubber.

Go Ahead And Pick A Light

Go Ahead And Pick A Light

Picking fruit from a tree could be a metaphor for recharging and reusing. This hollow steel tree is exactly that. It charges three pear-shaped lights that can be picked off for use. They’ll stay illuminated for an hour and when you’re out of “juice”, just put them back on the tree.

Speaker Chair

Speaker Chair

When furniture is fused with high tech kit the results are often about as comfortable and stylish as sandpaper g-string. But the new Speaker Chair by designer Pinju Chen defies the norm with its charmingly curvaceous lines and comfy interior cushion, which sent us from nought to napping in only a few seconds… until we were suddenly awoken by some beefy rock riffs.

Oh Noes, It Collapses

Oh Noes, It Collapses

A magazine rack designed to purposely look disheveled and disorganized. Each rack can be rearranged to create all kinds of chaos  tho I have a feeling, as  anal as I am, I’d probably just line them all up in a neat way. Ugh, that so defeats the purpose.

FlipChair Really Does Flip

FlipChair Really Does Flip

Not by itself of course. You have to do it yourself but what’s interesting here is that it can be used as a chair or chaise lounge. The design is a bit weird with that heeled foot. They should have taken it a step further and lined the interior frame with rawhide and wood to triple as a cat nook.

What's Your Pleasure, Shelving Or Desk?

What’s Your Pleasure, Shelving Or Desk?

When we go out and buy that big piece of furniture, we usually know exactly what it’s for. However, what if that piece of furniture could be reinterpreted differently by people. Take for instance this design by Yoon-Zee Kim. To one person it may simple be funky shelving. To another, it’s seating and a desk. Take a look around at your stuff. Do you see other uses for them?

Backbreaking Chair Summons Star Trek Style

Backbreaking Chair Summons Star Trek Style

Sounds horrible doesn’t it? Why would anyone want a backbreaking chair? Actually it’s called the Bench-Lighting Break (play on words) and tho it looks uncomfortable, at the very least its Star Trek archetype will appeal to some people.

Oh Jimmy Choo Display That Shoe

Oh Jimmy Choo Display That Shoe

$400 for a pair of Chimmy Choo’s, $150 for some Air Jordan’s, and $900 for some Gucci’s. Seriously, at these prices they do not deserved to be shoved into a closet. These things need to be displayed. Imagine a small grassy area on your wall with rearrangeable hooks to hang your shoes from. That’s the idea behind Hyun Jung Lee’s Shoe Picnic, because every shoe has its place. Now all your friends and family can admire you expensive ass shoes.

Spell Shelf

Spell Shelf

I’ll keep this simple. It’s a shelf that actually spells out shelf. Somebody should make a Scrabble version.
