Door-igami!

Age-old craft meets familiar fragment in this sculptural furniture edition influenced by the traditional art of paper folding. Titled Origami 9010, the series is part of the Serein brand’s sustainable design project “DACHWOOD” inspired by the architecture and history of Berlin’s “altbau.” The fully handcrafted limited edition of 50 originates from the artist’s study of using clear cuts to achieve folds applied to the reclaimed altbau doors as sheets of paper.

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!

Portable Lap Desk Installation No. 1

Portable Lap Desk Installation No. 1

The latest from UK-based Yois Design, the Portable Lap Desk Installation No. 1 is a design that will make you say DUH! Why didn’t I think of that? The minimalistic, 3-part desk is perfect for compact spaces. Wedged between two metal, wall-mounted bars, the board can rest flush against the wall when not in use, making its overall footprint next-to-nothing. The unattached bamboo board doubles as a portable lap desk that you can use almost anywhere while a groove across its width serves as handy space for your tablet or phone.

A Mirror for Reflecting

A Mirror for Reflecting

Architect Roberto Paoli’s LOID mirror isn’t just for checking your makeup and hair… it’s for pondering your perspective altogether. The scenographic object captures changing perspectives with 3 mirroring slabs. The surface is not continuous but fragmented into three pars in a deconstructed graphic configuration that makes possible the reflection of the space from three markedly different points of view, all directed toward the user.

Drunken Design

Drunken Design

The Skoki chair is proof that inspiration can come from the most unexpected of places! Designer Michael Kushner envisioned the chair while observing drunk people’s posture at a pub. The result is conversation-starting seating that utilizes springs to make you feel like you’re floating… without the woozy!

One Mouthwatering Chair

One Mouthwatering Chair

In bright white and rainbow colors, Alex Petunin’s DP Chair almost looks like it’s got a candy-coated center. As versatile as it is vibrant, the design can be used in two distinct ways- as a lounge for leaning back or as a rocker. It’s colorful stoppers keep it in place and prevent users from rocking too far. As yummy as it looks, don’t bite. It’s all hand carved wood!

For the Modern Teepee

For the Modern Teepee

Inspired by American Indian tribe craft, the Sioux coat rack is a subtle homage to customary woodworking during the age of bows and arrows. The design itself is a vertical representation of arrows shot into a target, with the base as the bullseye and 3 rods as arrows. As simplistic as it is sculptural, just structure is composed of just 4 components that are easily screwed together and unscrewed for easy transport.
