Balance you Books

Posted in furniture design, interior design, product design with tags , , , , on September 20, 2008 by anonimiss

The “Maintain the Balance of your Knowledge”, by Denis Oh is a hanging book rack that is sure to test your sense of equilibrium. Accommodating every swing of reading mood, the pendulum-like counter-balancers will ensure you don’t overload the heavy stuff if you want to stay on an even keel. Really cool!

‘Insert Coin’ to Access Your Books?

Posted in furniture design, interior design, product design with tags , , , , , on September 12, 2008 by anonimiss

The Insert Coin shelf system uses trays, inserted randomly at different levels on a colorful base, to accommodate just about everything you want on display. Designed by Nils Holger Moormann, Insert Coin provides potential for just about every look and could be used vertically or horizontally. No wonder the simple design has won several awards including the IF product design award 2008 and the Good Design Award -The Chicago Athenaeum 2008. I Like!

Another Case of Branching Out Your Books

Posted in furniture design, interior design, product design with tags , , , on September 4, 2008 by anonimiss

Don’t remember where I first came across Matteo Casarosa’s ‘Albero Della Cuccagna’ Tree bookshelf. Its one of those things I really liked at first glance and saved on my desktop instinctively. Even a google on the designer couldn’t fetch me much info. But I like the product nevertheless…..

Fully Booked for the Day…..I Guess

Ok, I think today is by default dedicated to book racks. I find the Piola, designed by nobodyandco, very cool. It is a wall bookcase designed to emphasize art and photography books, but I think we need not be restricted by just these books. Just about any book would look nice on this piece. What’s more, the designers have created a Piola with reduced measurements to serve as a kitchen library! I personally loved the colorful option. It would look great even without a book on it!

Branch Out The Books….

Posted in furniture design, interior design, product design with tags , , , on September 4, 2008 by anonimiss

Branca is a bookshelf that was born with the idea of natural shape abstraction, as its primary concept.  Its shape comes from the simplification of a tree branch to maintain an association with nature.  The designer, Rafael Fernandez also wants to allow the user the flexibility of arrangement options, “composing a useful tree in the user´s wall”. Its simple, nice, very functional and could be made of practicall an material. I like it!

Animal Markers

Posted in product design with tags , , , on August 28, 2008 by anonimiss

Really liked these book/cd seperators designed by Japanese artist Hiroshi Sasagawa that would add that extra charm to decorate your libraries. ‘Animal Index’ is a concept of separators in the shape of animal silhouettes that could be also used to mark the place you removed a book/cd from, with the animals ensuring that your place is safe as they move in and out of the marked area. Made me smile…..

Float Your Books Around

Well, this is called a ‘book tower’, but I like the way it makes the book’s ‘float’ in air, once the tower is fully filled with them. Simple and nice…..Found it at haseform.

For Those Who ‘Loo’ve to Read!!

I think the designers Black & Blum had me in mind when they created this ‘Loo Read’ bathroom accessory. I love the concept and the product! Ha Ha!

How to Cook up A Report…..

Posted in design with tags , on August 22, 2008 by anonimiss

Bruketa & Zinic of Croatia have designed an annual report for a food company Podravka that needs to be cooked – literally, before yo can read it! Aptly called ‘Well Done’, the report consists of blank pages printed in thermo-reactive ink, which needs to be wrapped in foil and baked in the oven for 25 minutes before the text and images are revealed. Very interesting and innovative.
