Chair with a ‘Spirit’

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

Designed by Architect Daniel Libeskind and Klaus Nienkamper the Spirit House Chair is constructed of stainless steel sheets in “interlocking, self-supporting structures, which are reminiscent of crystals”. The chair was designed for the Spirit House constructed last year in the Royal Ontario Museum’s Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. Whats more, each chair comes with a custom laser-engraved signature of the designer. I like Libeskind work in general, but this chair really stands apart – I love it! And it quite makes me think – “Origami in Steel”.

U’ll Love the ‘Ulo’ Chair

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , on September 23, 2008 by anonimiss

The ‘ulo chair‘ designed by Ian Walton is amazing, not for the concept but the structural detailing. Being a designer myself, I know how difficult it is to bring your concepts alive just the way you’ve imagined them. Technical glitches form part of everyday frustrations. So, this chair -the way it so smoothly transforms from a regular chair to a lounge version – is really praiseworthy. Simple design, great detail!

Missing Chairs…..Missig Links

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , , on September 10, 2008 by anonimiss

The ‘Missing Chairs’ by nobodyandco is quite intriguing. The concept for the chairs was born from the idea that “the chair never lives alone but is nearly always part of a greater object: the chairs”.  Missing Chairs is a collection of seven chairs, each one different from the other, with which it is also possible to obtain angular compositions and a bench. And an optical illusion around the table. May not be the most comfortable chairs to sit on, but an interesting idea nevertheless…..
