Flex Chair by Ply Project

(8 years ago)
Another ICFF discovery from Anna of Sub-Studio ~ we’re loving the Ply Project’s Flex Chair created by Kenichi Sato. It takes full advantage of plywood as a material, using its ability to be both rigid and supportive and take on a soft, bendable, almost woven texture. Being made of plywood, the chairs are lightweight and easily moved as they can be separated into a flexible plywood membrane which attaches to a metal frame with embedded magnets, making it so easy to remove/clean off/swap/etc! The Flex series comes in both a chair and chaise lounge. Take a peek at some of Anna’s pics from ICFF as well as product pics on the next page!TO PAGE 2 of "Flex Chair by Ply Project"! -----> (Want more visual goodness? See NOTCOT.com + NOTCOT.org)

Kindle Heat Lamps

(8 years ago)
There’s no denying that Kindle Living has some of the nicest heat lamps around. In fact, its surprising that there aren’t more designs that make better use of people’s natural tendencies to cluster under heat lamps… love that these are beautiful designs (though a bit alice in wonderland with the HUGE scaled traditional looking lamp look), more functional than purely heating - with the ability to provide lighting, cocktail tables, and even customized shades and more. But what’s most fascinating that i just discovered, is HOW they are actually assembled. When researching heat lamps for my friend’s patio, we started reading up on all the details, and discovered the assembly guide filled with pics! Surprisingly easy, i’m tempted now… even though it doesn’t get THAT chilly here! Take a peek on the next page!TO PAGE 2 of "Kindle Heat Lamps"! -----> (Want more visual goodness?

Living In: Badlands

Before there was Days of Heaven, there was Badlands. Both share a brilliant writer and director in Terrence Malick, and both hold me completely spellbound with their dusty views of the darker side of romance. Badlands is a soft-focus portrait of a teenaged girl and her drifter boyfriend who embark, almost accidentally, on a killing [...]
