Joel Escalona – Outdoor Furniture

I found these pieces recently and found them to be beautifully colored. Most outdoor furniture i encounter does not have the cohesive strength to make a whole collection. Rather, most outdoor furniture that you might find in this category are a motley collection of dissimilar objects. I applaud the consistency. sub-studio design blog: Joel Escalona […]

“Weltevree is a Dutch product label. Weltevree develops and produces authentic products for the living environment. Appliances that satisfy our primary desires: distinctive, original and of excellent quality. Weltevree was born out of the need to make these products accessible to all.” That’s their hook.

MICHAEL BIHAIN: Illusion Table

Illusion Table is so expertly performed that I couldn’t quite geta handle on its expertly crafted form. First, it is made from laquered ash which is not what I thought. At first glance, it’s steel or aluminum or anything else but wood. But this illusive use of such a simple material is not where the […]

Designer Profile: OOOMS

OOOMS is a guy/girl design duo based in the Netherlands. Their work has a sort of random quality that has a bit of natural bent. The solar birdhouse is a recent product that creates a beacon for the garden at night without using any grid power to do so. I think it may scare the […]

Below is some student work from the recent Stockholm Furniture Fair. Both items are furniture finished in white. One piece is a […]

Designer profile: Studio LIBERTINY

The work of Tomas Gabzdil Libertiny, a Slovakian-born designer based in the Netherlands, can best be described as obsessive-compulsive. But this complete devotion to his craft also leads to his profound and moving design experiments. As an example, he has recently created a Bic stained cabinet which gets its hue from collecting hundreds of Bic […]

Zipshape- A Simple Technique for Creating Complex Furniture

Zipshape is a technique developed by Schindlersalmeron that allows for curved surfaces to be made in furniture with creating costly molds or setting up cumbersome steaming chambers. The designs get their curves by the interlocking teeth that make up the top and bottom of the furniture piece. The furniture gets its curviture by varying the […]

Fail Bench: Furniture to Make You Insecure

I saw this bench, and it immediately spawned a thought about dieting and weight loss. I’m getting fatter. I’m not feeling like a real chunky, but I’m slowly creeping up from a slender 190 lbs. (I’m 6′-4″ BTW) to something more than this, let’s say. I think the name is interesting because my first thought […]
