The Strangest Skateboard Table

The Strangest Skateboard Table

Of all the skateboard deck and skateboard sport related furniture I’ve seen in all my years of seeing such things in my line of work, I have never, ever, seen something so wild as this. This is the strangest, wildest, most wacky piece of skateboard furniture I have ever seen. It tops both the categories of skateboard related AND skateboard constructed (meaning there’s skateboard parts included) furniture. Tops. Wild.

All Your Furniture are Slot

All Your Furniture are Slot

Designer Niclas Waldorf Slot would like to give you an idea of what’s going on in his head and his studio. His line of work centers around a collection called “Slot Futniture.” The example we use here is the “3 in 1″ table, a table which revolves around, as you can imagine, three ideas. Those ideas in a nutshell are timelessness, multi-functionality, and flat-packaging. It’s completely slot-tastic.

The Truth Inside Design Objects

The Truth Inside Design Objects

I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for objects that transform from one thing into a completely different thing. Transformers, if you will. Designer Rohan Chhabra has a few objects that do that, and not only that, they’ve got some philosophy behind them too. This set of objects goes by the name “Embodying Ethics.” You’ll find yourself getting emotional witnessing the change between a pair a pants a cow leg. For real.

Chopper Scooter, I'm Totally Serious

Chopper Scooter, I’m Totally Serious

If scooters are too passe for your bad boy, Jesse James lovin’ ego, check out this Chopper Scooter. The motorized mover was designed with linear lines and flowing shapes in mind – anything to hide it’s true identity. Great way to bring up those kids and get them all indoctrinated into the culture.

Sit On This

Sit On This

Designed to be used in apartments and small interiors, Nohoanga (seat in Maori) is designed to be portable. The shape of the seat echoes the organic forms found in nature with its smooth curves and flowing lines. A 100% merino throw lined with cotton is stored in the centre of the seat as well as having an integrated handle allowing users to comfortably carry the seat. All materials are sourced in New Zealand – 100% sustainably manufactured into luxurious, quality products. Too bad the lamb doesn’t come with it.

Umbrella Dryer

Umbrella Dryer

Mumbai magically transforms itself into a green city during the three months of monsoons that we get. The magic does come at the cost of careless people with dripping wet umbrellas in malls, shopping arcades and indoor public places. What they don’t realize is that slippery wet floors can cause nasty falls. I’ve been a victim to one such fall, so I really know why we need something like the Swan Umbrella Dryer.

How To Glam Up The Loo

How To Glam Up The Loo

Today’s lesson is on converting dowdy objects to something luxe by simply changing their looks and casings. Shallow as it may sound, in the toilet world, objects like plunger, scrubs and toilet brushes need a glam avatar so that we don’t feel filthy while using them. Keeping this in mind is the Undercover Collection that dolls up the plunger and paper in a sleek steel-finish casing. A casing with a universal design that can accommodate any size of plungers. It sure would look good in my loo, plus I like the idea of camouflaging the unsightly thingies that are essential for a clean looking toilet.

Metal Futurism in Bathroom Taps

Metal Futurism in Bathroom Taps

Welcome to the future of shiny taps! These lovely taps go by the name “Koolhaus” – that’s German, use your superior translation skills to figure out what it means. These Koolhaus taps are meant to inspire forward-thinking minds to conserve. But they make your eyeballs sparkle, too, yes? Such a fabulously almost-fictional look to these taps.

New Bike Carrying Culture

New Bike Carrying Culture

Designer Faris ELmasu is about to change the entire world of bike baskets. Up until now, the bike basket has been entirely lame. Made for the littlest kids and those who wish to steal puppies and turn into witches.* Now, all of that is changed. Yes, this is the “Bent Wood Basket.” Made specifically for the neo-hippy aka Hipster culture, this basket is beyond trendy. It’s downright cute and useful.

Two Wooden Curves

Two Wooden Curves

Here we’ve got two projects, a chair, and a door, both made by “FORMBOTEN.” They might seem disparate, but they’re hella the same. They’re both super excellent. They’re both made to make your life more interesting. They’re both made with molded wood. Not THAT kind of molded, I mean shaped, turned into curves. There’s a door that’s got all your pockets, then there’s a stackable chair that’s got your butt.

Ride This Pram

Ride This Pram

Walk On Air won an iF Concept Design 2010 Award and I’m sure babies everywhere cheered on. The pram adjusts to different heights and seat positions facilitating different activities from sleeping to eating. The trapezial wheel distribution offers greater mobility in small places without losing stability. The base of the chair turns 180° and a pendulum compensates for the irregurality of sidewalks. We’re talkin’ a smooth ass ride here people. I’m almost jealous of babies.

A Really Flat Chair

A Really Flat Chair

Kök is a flat-pack chair inspired from a blue chair, a common staple in Mediterranean and Aegean culture. Simple to make and easy to assemble, no adhesives or complicated joints. From my understanding, the weight of someone sitting reinforces the tension at the joints making the bond even stronger.

Just like “Whose Line is it Anyways”, two million points for guessing what this is! No prize money, but a big round of applause from us! Hint: It’s not a TREE!
