Kickstart Diatom's SketchChair: Furniture Designed by You

(8 years ago)
SketchChair marks the first Kickstarter project by Diatom, a design studio based in London and Lisbon. The project consists of an open-source software design tool that allows anyone, tech-savvy or otherwise, to design—and, if the project is Kickstarted, build—his or her own bespoke furniture.Principals Greg Saul and Tiago Rorke met while studying industrial design at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Diatom represents their interest in "the possibilities of interaction, digital fabrication and computational design."The SketchChair, then, represents a step towards making advances in digital fabrication available to the general public. Saul and Rorke acknowledge their debt to IKEA even as they hope to move beyond the mass-market business model:(more...)

Man Afraid for His Life Living in a Tree (Video)

(8 years ago)
Meet André Luís Augusto Rodrigues, a 23-year-old shoe shiner living in a tree in the heart of Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil and the world's 6th largest city. Augusto can't exactly remember how long he has lived six feet off the ground, but remembers why he moved there very well...

Chairs that Start with a B: The Bachelor's Chair

(8 years ago)
It's weird to think there was an 18th-Century chair designed specifically for unmarried men, but then again, unmarried men in the 18th Century were themselves considered weird.Presumably single men in the 1900s lived in garrets and other space-tight structures, hence we have this early example of space-saving furniture: A combination chair, step-stool and ironing board. You might be a single loser too short to reach the top shelf on your own, but that's no reason not to continue wearing crisp shirts that you press yourself.If you're lucky you'll see one of these on eBay, and Woodworker's Woodshop sells plans for the chair if you want to build your own. We question their repetitive use of the heart motif, though; perhaps meant to be hopeful, it just comes off as sad.(more...)

Vincent Kohler's "Billon" Tree, Ready-Made for Woodworking

(8 years ago)
It would be a woodworker's dream if trees came like this:Alas, it's not real; it's not even real wood. It's a polystyrene and resin piece by Switzerland-based artist Vincent Kohler, shot by Geoffrey Cottenceau. I guess receiving trees in that form would be cheating for a true craftsman, but I can't help thinking of all the sawdust I wouldn't have to vacuum up.(more...)

Privacy Chair: Marijn van der Poll's "Ahrend Kaigan"

(8 years ago)
Just in time for summer, Dutch designer Marijn van der Poll has taken inspiration from traditional dutch wickerwork beach chairs to create a new standard for the contemporary office environment. In the same way that the traditional wicker chairs provided their users some protection against the elements, the "Ahrend Kaigan" creates some privacy for users in today's open office plans offering some protection from visual and audible distractions. Explains van der Poll:Open plan offices, where there is no rigid boundary between one worksite and the next, are becoming increasingly popular. These often include benches—something like old-fashioned kitchen tables—where people sit side by side while they work. This set-up stimulates communication between team members."But you still need a bit of privacy from time to time. For a chat with a colleague, for example, or a confidential phone call whose contents you don't want everyone to hear. The "Ahrend Kaigan" allows you to withdraw into a world of your own for a while and is designed to reinforce this feeling of separation both for the user and for the surroundings.(more...)

Adam Cramer on "The Can-Do Spirit"

(8 years ago)
I'm drawn to that breed of machine that will outlast its owner. I love those rare things that were built without any obsolescence in mind, and that are so intrinsically well-made and durable that they continue to hum long after everyone involved with their original manufacture is in the ground, and multiple generations can continue to reap the benefits of the machine.For me those machines are vintage Singers, and for Adam Cramer they're vintage motorcycles. Even the best-made machines will see natural wear and eventually "go out of tune," so to speak, and then you need someone who knows how to put them back together. Thus Cramer runs Liberty Cycles, a vintage motorcycle repair shop in Philadelphia. Etsy's got a vid on him for part of their Handmade Portraits series:(more...)
