Stitch-Up Your Chair

Posted in design, furniture design, product design, sustainable design with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2009 by anonimiss

Liked this concept for ‘stitch your own furniture’ by designer Oscar Nunez. Apart from being a low-cost option, this could also be developed into an eco-friendly product. A really potent idea…..

Cory Grosser’s ‘Funk Chair’ really made me smile – its different, its good looking and its fun -a good choice for a post after a long break.

A Carefully ‘Worded’ Chair

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , , on November 26, 2008 by anonimiss

The Dharma Lounge designed by Palette Industries explores the use of text as both structure and decoration, with the purpose of creating a situation where the participant is embraced by the possibilities of building a relationship with the object based on personal and communal experiences and memories thus substantiating the lifespan of the product. The words read – Stand, Forget, Breathe, Acknowledge and Observe. Great looking product, really grabs your eyeballs! I Like…

The ‘One-to-Three-for-Five’??

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , , , on November 24, 2008 by anonimiss

As the title suggests, this is a simple, elegant box table that opens up from one piece into three pieces in not more than five seconds! Designed by John Nouanesing, who also calls it ‘not another cube’. Neat!

Want to ‘Switch’ you Furniture??

Posted in design, furniture design, interior design with tags , , , , on November 17, 2008 by anonimiss

SwiTCh is a new concept by designer Ellen Ectors. It is a chair and a table, a relaxing seat and a small working place in one. It switches instantly and effortlessly. swiTCh is the designer’s graduation work and was selected by theyoungdesignersfair interior 08, Kortrijk. The chair/table is completely handmade and multifunctional and easily adapts from a comfortable chair to a small working place. It is a 100% Belgian design, made out of massive oak and fine leather with a filled ball. Encompassing the timeless geometries of both a cube and a sphere it is formal and relaxed, soft and structured, ready for work and play. Ergonomic aspects of the ball improve the posture, provide energy and help stay alert. I love it for its adaptability and the simple, elegant design and detail of execution. Thumbs Up!

When a Group of Chairs become a Bench…..

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , on November 5, 2008 by anonimiss

Jo Nagasaka of Schemata Architecture has designed this unique bench. Its actually six chairs bound together by a plank of wood running through on top. The designer says – “A chair+ a (duck-legged) chair+ a chair+ a chair+ a chair+ a chair ⇒ a bench.”  Now, that’s a real interesting way to perceive a bench. Sort of in the lines of my earlier post – 100 Chairs in 100 Days. I like!

3-in-1…..Cardboard Furniture for Car Lovers??

Posted in furniture design, green, interior design with tags , , , , , , on October 27, 2008 by anonimiss

The C30 Project designed as an entry for the ‘Volvo for Life’ design awards by Luis Luna is a beautiful development of a car-light inspired concept. Made of sequentially arranged multiple layers of cardboard, the 3-in-1 design is simple, sustainable yet contemporary and stylish…..

The Night Lamp is ‘Eyeing’ You…..Beware!

Posted in design, furniture design, interior design with tags , , , , , on October 27, 2008 by anonimiss

I’d earlier featured another work of Israeli artist and designer Tomer Sapir- Prostheses. This work – Unit1.1 is a bedside table that has an built-in alarm clock that is synchronized to the user’s sleep cycles. This is one designer who never ceases to amaze me with his concepts. Love it for its ‘alien-ness’! In fact, it also reminds me of the ‘big brother is watching’ concepts right out of Kafka and George Orwell’s books.

Sitting Pretty on a Recycled Plastic Chair

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

Australian industrial designer Stuart Mcfarlane has designed a chair made by folding recycled plastic, without the use of glues or screws and which can hold up to 100 kg. The chair is intended to be suitable indoors and out, and could be re-recycled at the end of its life via domestic infrastructure. It’s simple design and clean lines do appeal to me, but for increased sustainability, the same chair could be developed from thin gauge sheet metal with a similar result. Like it! But hey, will designers stop playing it safe and use some color for a change?!!

Move Around with Your Origami Chair

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , , on October 17, 2008 by anonimiss

Came across this innovative portable chair -Cardine designed by Sooin Kim (as a student), which is a easy folding chair formed with a single sheet of plastic and two pairs of Velcro. This simple structure requires extremely few resources and energy for manufacturing so it could be an answer for the sustainable future. And the low cost to produce will make it a low price product so anybody who wants to use will be able to have it. Cardine could be folded to a chair and also be unfolded at any time and place. Nice! And I appreciate the designer’s concern that the material is not eco-friendly and needs more research for a sustainable design.
