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!

Them for Us

Them for Us

The latest addition to DesignByThem’s timber range, “Them Chair” is a modern interpretation of the enduring furniture designs of the 1960s. Though inspired by a time when furniture was built to last, it is constructed with the latest technology to reinterpret the design into a reduced form. Combining a classic aesthetic with sustainable living, it is constructed from dense FSC timber ensuring it stands the test of time. Better yet, it can be flat-packed and assembled by the user- functions to the global economy, yet uncommon in a product with this level of craftsmanship.

Change in Equilibrium

Change in Equilibrium

Inspired by the literary work of Paulo Coelho, the Animada chair is the sculptural genius of designer Eduardo Benamor Duarte that channels the animistic belief that every non-human form has a spiritual essence. The sequential array of identical ribs gradually rotate from each other to creates a visual illusion of changing shape. The resulting aesthetic is is at once animate with movement and suspended in equilibrium.

Between a rock and a soft place

Between a rock and a soft place

Poor Fred Flintstone… Worked all day and came back home to ruthlessly uncomfortable stone furniture! I’m sure he would have loved one of these stone-mimicking foam stools. Designer Matthijs Kok did a spot-on job of molding soft PU Foam to look like a chunk of rock. Don’t let your eyes fool you, the stool is as soft as a baby’s backside. And with its three chrome legs, it looks like something the Flintstones would receive from the Jetsons!
