Protrude

(5 years ago)
Protrude ist ein Tablett, das nicht vom Tisch fällt, wenn man es beiseite schiebt. Der Trick ist denkbar einfach, der Entwurf von Naoki Ono und Yuuki Yamamoto wird einfach mittels einer Metallspange am Tisch festgeklemmt. Protrude lässt sich auf der Spange um 360° drehen, so sind auch scheinbar unmögliche Positionen möglich. Link: Protrude Fotos: Yasuko Furukawa | [...]

Dedon Nestrest

(5 years ago)
Something are fun in pictures, but even MORE fun when you climb inside! When we walked past Dedon and i saw the Mini Nestrests hanging in the window and a huge Nestrest just inside the door, we had to pop in… and when the man there told me i was welcome to climb in… how could i say no? The Nestrest is designed by french duo, Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety. It is far comfier than i expected, and with the way they lit it, it was a magical little oasis to curl up in! Also, far more spacious feeling than you’d expect. The minis are pretty much cat/mini-dog sized… and imagining them popping their heads out while hanging from a tree makes me smile. And their photography! The contexts in which they shoot the Nestrests are pretty funny ~ from being carried around in them, to next to a flock of ostriches and more. From the original pictures, i somehow assumed that they would be made of bent wood, but turns out it is all made of an “especially strong DEDON fiber” which is 4cm wide instead of their usual 2, weather/UV/cold+heat/pool+sea water resistant, high density polyethylene that is maintenance free and easy to clean. It is also environmentally friendly, being 100% recyclable and toxin-free with love carbon emissions. I’m tempted! It would be amazing hanging from the tree in the backyard, to curl up and swing gently… take a peek at the playful photography, view from inside, and more details on the next page!TO PAGE 2 of "Dedon[..]

Inspiration in NYC

(5 years ago)
For all of the NY Design Week randomness we’ve loved and already posted, flipping through our instagrams (and Shawn’s) proved the real fun happened between the events! So here’s a peek at everything ELSE that inspired and amused us that turned up on our phones! Take a peek at everything from the LOOK signage i was hunting for, to street art, to taco store floors, to the game of thrones like saw chair, the wedding we went to, the wooden beer slide, suits and surf photoshoot, and so much more on the next page… (and for those who follow our instagrams, here’s a bit more context.)TO PAGE 2 of "Inspiration in NYC"! -----> (Want more visual goodness?
