100 Piece Chair

(4 years ago)
Wie ein Netz spannen sich die 100 hölzernen Glieder über den Rahmen des Stuhls. Daraus resultiert ein Sitzgefühl, wie auf einem Campingstuhl. Allerdings gibt hier das Gewebe nicht nach und schränkt so den Sitzkomfort mit der Zeit immer weiter ein. Die beweglichen Holzklötze bieten ausreichend Bewegung, um ein kleines bisschen auf dem Stuhl rumzappeln zu [...]

Verso Shelf - One Nordic Furniture Co.

(4 years ago)
Shawn and i keep falling for the Verso Shelf by Mikko Halonen for One Nordic Furniture Company everywhere we go (well, so far at Home In The Woods and WantedDesign)… It is a beautiful ladder-esque bookshelf that allows you to showcase your books both spine out, or cover first with the addition of simple shelves that slip on. It comes in two widths (one that looks more ladder like, and the other more bookshelf like) an three finishes (black, white, natural). It was the winning design in a competition for a series of classic pocket books at a local publishing company. Apparently it can also be used for clothes, accessories… anything really! Though i’m not sure whether you can actually climb it as a ladder… Really the nicest detail in its simplicity is that the rails alternate sides, giving it a lovely side profile, and creating the perfect depth for your books to lean.

Loïc Bard Capside Lamps

(4 years ago)
Some lights just pull you in, and you can’t help but to peek inside them! Loïc Bard’s Capside Lamps do just that… their faceted woody shell and colorful rope cord are hard to ignore, but when you get glimpses of the bright colors within, you have to peek inside! And as an added bonus (for those who love the details) the inner frame looks like CNC milled wood holding on to the subtly beveled facets… And they can be suspended like pendant lamps, or placed as on one of their many sides for directional, ambient lighting. Take a peek at the stunning lamps on the next page!TO PAGE 2 of "Loïc Bard Capside Lamps"! -----> (Want more visual goodness? See NOTCOT.com + NOTCOT.org)
