Part Table, Part Planter

Part Table, Part Planter

The Treeangle Table’s artificial stone base extends through its walnut top, stabilizing the surface and creating a unique visual quality that mimics the form of a forest canopy. Accentuating the organic shape, the top section is hollow, making it the perfect place for a small plant. It’s a clean, modern interpretation of the stump base coffee table!

Remembering Fukushima

Remembering Fukushima

The Unusual Chair by Japanese design firm h220430 is an expression of the current state of fragility the region is experiencing due to the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Though it has been 2 years since the disaster & things appear to be normal, the reality of the condition is far from it. The chair aims to reflect this abnormality in its missing leg, which viewers might overlook without closer examination. It’s a subtle & thoughtful reminder that the existence of danger is ever present despite our attempts to ignore it.

In just a few simple movements, the Sedia3 chair can be transforms from 3D to 2D for easy storage, portability, and space-saving. Lifting the seat surface from the rear and pushing it towards the front releases the legs and the central crosspieces. Then, the chair can be folded flat. No tools are required! This versatile design is composed of wood with the exception of the rear metallic pivot pin and hook that makes it possible to hang on the wall, completely out of the way.

The PP Capsule is a distant relative of the beanbag chair that is composed entirely of post-consumer materials.

Best of all, this eco-concious design can be produced by local enterprises, seamstresses, & craftsman by using 2 materials that are found worldwide!

Modern Sacred Shelving

Modern Sacred Shelving

The Noma Shelf is a statement on habitual consumption, reminding us of the things we already own, while accommodating the new. Based on the traditional Japanese tokonoma, the shelf is sized for displaying small artistic objects. However, if you slide the shelf away from the wall, a stretchy lycra pouch is revealed for storing cherished items and trinkets. The pouch grows as items are added, so the form is completely dictated by the contents and quietly reminds us of our accumulation as it swells!

Like Bread and Butter

Like Bread and Butter

Wood and steel just go together! The Composite Stool earns its name from the marriage of these two elements that form its simplistic yet stylish construction. Plasma cut 4mm mild steel is pressed into shape and powder coated to form the top, while sapele or silver beech wood is machined and assembled by hand to form the legs. The result is so sleek you’d never guess they were handmade in designer Andrew Cassels’ very own garage! Get em’ here!

I Heart Stooka

I Heart Stooka

I am writing this article on the Stooka Chair, curled up in my hotel bed, from one of the trendiest boutique hotels of Singapore. The kinds that focuses only on chairs! It’s ironic that this hipster place has all kinds of seating options from eras gone by, but not one that boasts of being sustainable, multifunctional, portable, easy to store and more importantly eco-friendly. Perhaps I should talk to them about the Stooka.

AirChair

AirChair

Inspired by the framework of the the very first experimental aircraft, the Air Chair’s triangular steel structure is at once reminiscent of flyers of the past and modernly minimal. Faceted planes compose the seat and back for an aerodynamic aesthetic that also excels in comfort. Even more interesting, every section of the design has also been proportioned to the “golden ratio” for aesthetic appeal.

Goose Down & Quilted Sofa

Goose Down & Quilted Sofa

Brilliant! I absolutely adore this big, cushy, comfy, plushy sofa from Gervasoni. The Nuvola collection consists of a lounge chair and sofa from a multilayer and solid wood frame, upholstered with differentiated density polyurethane foam covered by a goose down and polyester fibre quilting. All this and the covers are removable for easy washing.

Jony Ive & Marc Newson Team Up for (RED)

Jony Ive & Marc Newson Team Up for (RED)

Iconic designers Jony Ive and Marc Newson aren’t two names I expect to see together on the same by-line but there they are on a one-of-a-kind desk machined from a single piece of aluminum. It almost seems like the perfect marriage – Newson’s typical swoopy/curvy lines in lieu of anything sharp in one of Ive’s favorite materials. The eye-popping table top grabs most of the attention with its oversized cellular surface pattern.
