Five Sheets Of Color

Five Sheets Of Color

The Takeoff Table doesn’t fly as its name suggests but it does come in 5 pretty colors and you get them all in one table. Based on the CMYK color model for print, 5 graphic patterns of colors can be added and removed to create new patterns and colors. The table itself is back lit so the patterns illuminate. Designer Hee-Woo Kim believes it’s a great way to lighten and change the mood of any room at will.

Make Diaper Changing Fun

Make Diaper Changing Fun

Play! began as an exploration of how work and play intertwine. Most parents don’t like changing diapers but any good doctor will tell you it’s important to the bonding experience. Play! enhances that experience by making both you and baby playful. The large hollowed out table does double duty by encouraging play down below. Several cut out holes are perfect for playing a rousing game of peek-a-boo.

Just 6mm Thin

Just 6mm Thin

Thinner creates the illusion of a thin, weightless surface. Thinner is a table characterized by the elegance of its slender dimensions – just 6 mm of white compact laminate. To gain the required stability the table was constructed like the wing of an aeroplane. Simply sleek and stunning.

Orchid Inspired Chair

Orchid Inspired Chair

Designer Sebastian Gronemeyer took inspiration from the delicate forms of orchid leaves to create this unnamed chair. The smooth organic curves are actually quite ergonomic. Both the seat and backrest slightly flex to really mount you in when you sit. Tho thin, the reinforced fiberglass material is plenty strong. They’re supported by tubular steel rods mounted on rubber shocks for extra comfort.
