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!

2d3d- A New Language in Design

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.

A ‘Sheepish’ Design

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , on September 8, 2008 by anonimiss

The ‘sheeps’ designed by Israeli designer Itay Ohaly redefines the function of a living room table while breaking its boundaries. He transforms the table from a static furniture to a dynamic object, encouraging the user to interact with it – arranging the modules in a variety of ways, inside and outside the box.  An interesting concept…..
