Mother/Child Dining

Mother/Child Dining

This dining table for mother and child is based on the metaphor of the special intimate moment of feeding your child. This feeling goes much deeper then just giving food; mother and child are almost one, as with the umbilical cord before birth. In this way the furniture has to be one too.

Wall Art Chair

Wall Art Chair

The first foldable cantilever chair, goes from wall art to functional furniture with a flick of the wrist. With an inspiring take on the maximization of space and the transformation of an object from 2D to 3D, it epitomizes designer Dror Benshetrit’s vision: the emotion of art intertwined with simple poetics of form following function.

Sumo Lounge Omni Review

Sumo Lounge Omni Review

There’s something comforting about allowing your body to totally collapse and relax. Even with the comfiest and coziest chairs and couches, we’re forced to sit how the furniture intended for us to sit. Totally not the case with the Sumo Lounge Omni.

When Is A Suitcase Not A Suitcase?

When Is A Suitcase Not A Suitcase?

The whole world is your sweet, sweet home! We love traveling! And we really know what it means when you have to spend 10 or 15 hours waiting on uncomfortable seats at the airport lounges, not being able to spread yourself comfortably on a sofa, and forget about that beloved rocking chair or comfy slippers you are used to enjoy at home so much. Being a passenger is a challenge.

Stiched Chair From Fabric

Stiched Chair From Fabric

Take a close look and you’ll see the Stitched Chair looks like somebody upholstered the wood frame except there’s a problem with that presumption – there is no frame.  The chair is actually made from high grade ballistic tech kevlar aramide fabric. The fiber is strong enough to support a person yet pliable enough to really “tailor” some unique forms. Who needs wood glue and nails when all you need is a needle and thread.

A Better School Desk

A Better School Desk

The Teacher’s Pet desk is designed to replace the desks you’ll find in most schools around the world – molded plywoods with aluminum supports. The problem is once those desks get vandalized or damaged, there’s no way to fix them without replacing the whole desk which is too costly. The Teacher’s Pet desk is made of components that can be individually ordered, repaired, replaced, and upgraded.

Spruce Up That Bookcase With Ladders

Spruce Up That Bookcase With Ladders

When I think of those grand libraries around the world, they all have one thing in common – books so high up you need ladders to get to them. The Ladder Shelf plays on that by bringing a little whimsicality to any bookshelf.

Sit Down With A Good Book

Sit Down With A Good Book

There’s this preconceived notion that books have to be displayed on shelves, ala library style but our modern lives don’t exactly allow for large shelving units and so we find other creative solutions such as smaller floating shelves. “Book in a Chair” takes a similar approach by integrating slats inbetween seat cushions along a bench. That way, a good book or magazine is always within arm’s reach.

A News Roll You Don't Read

A News Roll You Don’t Read

The design requires no filling material due to the structure of the felt material. However, collecting newspapers makes the news roll more comfortable and provides an incentive to reuse rather than recycle. The product is lightweight (without newspapers) and multi functional, with use as a mat, screen, stool and cushion, using 100% natural wool.

Stiletto Stool

Stiletto Stool

The stiletto heel, other wise known as the 3+ inch tapered peg has become synonymous with high fashion. That style awareness could be extended to furniture and thus you have the High Heel Stool which I like to call the stiletto stool. The cushioned seat is supported by an impression of one large high heel.

Military Like Hangers

Military Like Hangers

If you care about fashion, you either fit in the mass consumer market or demand brands that make a statement. Designer Fay Berry chose a very unique brand called Maharishi and created these steel military inspired hangers to extend the Maharishi brand experience further. Part of that was taking design right into the retail environment through fixtures and fittings.
