Engineered to The Nth Degree

Engineered to The Nth Degree

The Grid Chair by Jaebeom Jeong may look like something straight out of Solidworks but it’s a real chair. The design is inspired by industrial super structures, scaffolding, and stainless steel. The result is something eerily modern but intriguing because of all the exposed “work.” At least your bum will be happy thanks to the walnut black satin stained seat.

Kengo Kuma Houses for Muji

Kengo Kuma Houses for Muji

Kengo Kuma has designed two prefabricated houses for Muji  They are small, simple, beautiful, can come in many variations, are made of standardized kits of parts, and are generic in a very Zen kind of way.  Just like the rest of Muji’s stuff!  Both house prices start around $200,000 USD, so it’s definitely the Muji of architecture.

Confess It to the Poles

Confess It to the Poles

Everyone has secrets, and the poles want to know! Designer Florian Brillet creates the newest amalgamation of the main points of secrecy: the public, and the secret itself. In Brillet’s “Secret” project the secrets are told to the public poles, and the public poles tell the secrets back to the public.

Once the secret is separate from the teller, it becomes public property.
