Designed for the Dutch exhibition 'Conflict' the divider from Mieke Meijer deals with defined spaces using the own construction.
Time is running like hell! A big project we're working on should be finished these days, thats why the lack of posts... Anyway, a lot of nice products and concepts on the web! Charles Kalpakian is the smart design brain behind Studio Hello Karl. He's looking for traditional spirit and a fusion of techniques. It works!
Two portable objects for storage, they have the double function of a suitcase and a show display. You carry them with you or put them down as cabinets. They transport what you need and show what you have chosen to take with you. Stunning project from young netherland based designer Jolien Hanemaaijer.

Just found another great project for Salone del Mobile Milano 2012. Marni presented a collection of 100 chairs made in Colombia by ex-prisoners. They reinterpreted this common seats and modified woven pattern and created new color schemas. So, if you are a lover of Marni fashion, I think you'll like this as well.... (btw Anticamera is Marni's quarterly online magazine, featuring words and images.)
Swedish Note Design Studio went deep into the forest to explore, measure and collect. After a long expedition, they now had plenty to look through back home. “Base Camp”; the simplistic materials and shapes of scientific field expedition tools adapted to stand wear and tear. Just like last year, they ended up with a diverse collection of colours, shapes, materials and expressions; just the way they (we) like it.
First have a look at this mood picture.... The collection is shaped and inspired by conifer pine trees. They come in pairs, you can move them around, remove the cushion and use the hidden table.
As a furniture designer myself, I think to design furniturelegs is something really difficult. It's similar to shoes, if you wear the perfect dress and crappy shoes, this kills the whole look. The idea of Prettypegs is to create a new way of personalising furniture from brands like IKEA. A set of Prettypegs simply adds colour and character to your furniture. And just like your favorite pair of shoes, they complete the look.
Clear-cut storage boxes, tables, racks and lamps - While both artists are inspired by the tension between the known and the unknown they create furniture out of sheer necessity and function. Cool!
Seating and side table like Swiss Alps, wow!
I have to write about an 'old' love.... Since month I'm following the stunning process of the 'redesign' of the wonderful TriplexLamp, made by Ulrika and her husband. Her blog mackapär is supercreative, the pictures and the moods are great! Yesterday I found the latest note from Ulrika: If you are wondering about the status of this friend, I can tell you product launch is coming closer. Only a couple of minor notes to be adjusted before it's approved by the test labs and ready to sell!
Great, we are waiting impatiently... ;-)
Transcience shows the beauty of the natural oxidizing process of mirrors, by accelerating and manipulating this process, the Transcience mirrors show various stages of oxidation in three different geometrical patterns. Transcience is a project developed by David Derkson and Lex Pott for the Dutch Design Week 2011in Eindhoven.
Lightweight stool or wavy Coat hanger, the technology developed by Oskar Zieta is fantastic. Welded and inflated very carefully under high pressure to create unique bulges and waves. That's design!!
Ionna Vautrin is a french designer i really admire. She is the designer behind the wonderful lamp Binic ( yep, i bought the aubergine one for our sleepingroom, i'll show you pictures in my soon coming rebuilding roundup) but she created several other wonderful products. The mirror rétroviseur domestique is new for me, but as usual really clear lines and shapes! Wonderful!
Are you also interested in the 'story' behind a table or a chair, kind of what was the initial idea? I found a great 'lookbook' from designer Bram Boo, where you can find first ideas of finished furniture. Great!
