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…

Chair with a ‘Spirit’

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”.

2d3d- A New Language in Design

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

London-based furniture design company Formtank launched a series of sustainable table designs at the recently concluded 100% Design. Using a single sheet of industrial steel in the most efficient way possible, these cutting-edge “2d3d” tables are constructed to maximize yield while minimizing waste. Capable of carrying a considerable load, the volume of each table’s base is just ¼ of the volume of the glass it supports.

I loved the tables for their sheer all-steel beauty and sophisticated ‘industrial’ look. And I think the beauty of the concept lies in the fact that it could be applied to tables in several other materials too, cardboard for instance, and still look amazing.
