Between eReaders and smartphones, our bookshelves are rather empty these days. But why fill them with books when you can fill them with books that double as furniture? Uh yeah, it’s a thing, and it’s crowdfunding right now.
You know what’s not great to sit on? A rock. But when it’s made by product designer Matthijs Kok, you’re sure to feel comfortable whenever you sit down.
There’s something about a quirky chair design that just captures my attention, so here is my next eye-catcher: the Stray Bullet Chair. Designed by Design da Gema, these chairs (and matching side tables) are more than just mindless pieces.
Sitting down is bad for you, agreed? Dutch design firm RAAAF thinks so too, and they are now addressing this lifestyle hazard in the workplace with an office design that takes away chairs and tables altogether. The idea is to put up forms of varying slopes and angles for light leaning support, while encouraging workers people to move about as they work.
So this is probably what you get for the person who has everything… and who has a bondage fetish. It’s a bondage pony girl rocker, courtesy of Peter Jakubik. That’s awesome, right? But what’s even more awesome is the fact that the design of these rockers are free of charge from the designer so you can make them yourself.
Fun products that are unexpectedly versatile: The Niels Chair is also a reading nook and a place to do yoga
There’s a new chair on the block that can do so much more than any chair you and I own: The Niels Chair. Created by French designer Hugues Klein, this chair not only serves as a cozy place to sit, but also works as a private yoga space.
Japanese designer Keita Suzuki has created a rather unusual-yet thought-provoking-chair design. The Tear Drop Chair is a free-form design that is filled with 64 litres of water. Why that exact amount of water? It’s supposed to signify the average volume of tears a human being will shed during their lifetime. Sixty-four litres, people! That’s a lot of tears and a lot of eye redness.
For all those people who like the intimacy of another person but get too easily irritated by them, there’s a new sofa on the market. It’s called the Enveloppe sofa by Inga Sempe for LK Hjelle, and it features a curved and flexible backrest that wraps around you like a big, warm hug. When you’re […]
Remember when bean bags were all the rage? And remember how they only cost around $20? Those were the days! In the 21st century, the bean bag has had quite the makeover and is being marketed towards the more luxury buyers, all thanks to a little bit of sheepskin. The Parker Wool Bean Bag is a contemporary take on the traditional bean bag, constructed of natural sheepskin from tanneries in New Zealand, Australia, and Northern European countries.
I’ve seen many cool conference tables in my time (I lie, I haven’t), but this one has got to be the best. Who even thinks of these things? Southern California-based company MotoArt, that’s who. This company designed an epic conference table out of a Boeing 747 jumbo jet engine.
This is totally creeping me out but apparently UK artist Gigi Barker feels otherwise for she has created a line of furniture with pieces that look, feel and smell like human skin. Do we really need so much human contact? What’s more, she has also infused them with human pheromones and aftershave.
We’ve all been there–some super awkward situation when we’ve wished we could just suddenly evaporate from the scene. Well, now you kind of can. Kind of. Artist (and pure genius) Jamie Isenstein has created the Human Chair. Basically, it’s just what it sounds like: it’s a piece of furniture you can actually wear.
We love desserts. We love furniture. We love dessert furniture. There you have it. Can we move on and finally sit on all of these? Italian designer Diego Gugliermetto has a series of dessert poufs and sofas we really want to sink our bottoms onto, while Kabiljo’s cheekily-named Let Them Sit Cake is reminiscent of […]
Ever since I chanced upon a hidden wall bed (you pull it up against the wall, where it then stays put for ages… at least, until you feel sleepy) in a friend’s home, I’ve been trying to find out who makes these things. As it appears, UK-based Clei does these space-saving beds, from simple pull […]
