La Seora Hammock

(7 years ago)
There is no better way to spend National Hammock Day (today!) than relaxing in one. It’s Sunday, and I wish I had this La Seóra Hammock to lie back on. Inspired by the multi-cultural city of Miami, the hybrid design is meant to incorporate the typical American recliner with a Caribbean hammock. Made of plywood [...]

Noddy Boffin Sideboard

(7 years ago)
Ein ungewöhnlicheres Sideboard sucht man mit Sicherheit eine ganze Weile, trotzdem ist der Entwurf von Elliot Gorham keineswegs unbenutzbar oder unansehnlich. Verschiedene klassische Schreiner Techniken finden hier ihren Einsatz, um die teilweise komplizierten Verbindungen umzusetzen. Das Ergebnis ist ein handwerklich hochwertig gearbeiteter Blickfang, der nicht so schnell langweilig wird. Link: Noddy Boffin Sideboard

Chair 2011

(7 years ago)
Der Entwurf ist die erste Zusammenarbeit von Lotty Lindeman und Wouter Scheublin. Die beiden Designer haben hier einen Stuhl entworfen, der auf den ersten Blick unheimlich kompliziert und gleichzeitig sehr luftig wirkt. Ein gespanntes Seil sorgt für entsprechenden Sitzkomfort und natürlich unterstützt es auch das optische Konzept des Stuhls. Link: Chair 2011

Les Briques

(7 years ago)
Die einfache Kästen eignen sich perfekt, um verschiedene Kleinigkeiten, wie beispielsweise Kleingeld, Schlüssel oder Visitenkarten aufzubewahren. Die Vertiefung ist schräg ausgeformt, was es einfacher macht, die Gegenstände auch wieder herauszunehmen. Les Briques kann man natürlich auch übereinander stapeln, um Platz zu sparen und die unterschiedlichen Farben bringen mehr Leben in den Entwurf. Link: Les Briques

Emel Kurhan Loves Istanbul & Paris by Jotun

(7 years ago)
In Istanbul all week, and while we’re here for one of my dearest friend’s wedding ~ amongst the festivities, it has been hard to figure out what to do and where to go to really get to know Istanbul! Surely there are the usual monuments, museums, bazaars and other must see spots that you find in the touristy guides… then there are the high end luxury shopping sections with brands you can probably find in any major city… and even the Wallpaper guide had a bunch of the same old stuff… but finding resources to share the fun, unexpected in betweens has been surprisingly tough! Even chatting with local friends of the bride, it’s not always easy for people to step back and help direct you to the uniquely different little shops, galleries and spots that they may take for granted…Thanks to twitter and the internet in general making travel and exploration a smaller world than ever ~ i got the sweetest tweet from the folks at Jotun the other day, which lead to a magical little package arriving on the hotel room bed hours later! Artist, Emel Kurhan, has created a set of guide books (Emel Loves Istanbul and Emel Loves Paris!) that feel like a scrapbook of favorite spots (and why they are loved, which turn to take/door to open for secret spots, etc) leading you into a whole over side of Istanbul! “The 2 Guides are for sale togetherthe price for 2 books is 40TL, the money will be donated to different animal shelters, they come with a[..]
