Slope Sofa by Council

3 years ago, my wife and I had a child. Since then my design blog has suffered from neglect. Today, I hope to end this. But I’m starting out slowly with a quick post from one of the great American furniture companies: Council. In May, they came out with a collection that I hope will […]

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 […]

Stack by Shay Alaklay and Raw Edges for Established & Sons

I remember back in college the first time I ever saw a Rem Koolhaas house. I cannot remember the name of the house, now, but it was built for a wheelchair bound man and his wife. The house seemed simple enough at first glance, but it always seemed odd to me. Much later, I realized […]

Tubes by Tsunami Glassworks

Tubes by Tsunami Glassworks was one of the highlights of ICFF for me. I’m a sucker for contemporary glass design, and this work surpassed all others in my opinion. Each piece in Tubes is hand blown and finished, and each piece has its own character and hue. When all pieces are assembled to make a […]

BKLYN Designs: UM

I wanted to get this post out quickly because the BKLYN Designs Expo has just past, and yet I have not talked about the most prolific and possibly the most fun design collective: UM. Their work is just so damn clever. As my cop out, I’ll let them speak for themselves: At the core we […]

BKLYN Designs: Takeshi Miyakawa

Another great find from BKLYN Design: Takeshi Miyakawa. Why is this guy not a superstar designer? Good question. His pieces are clever, refined, simple, and extremely desireable. And maybe most important of all (at least for design stardom), Miyakawa’s work is iconic. His fractal 23 shelving just has this timeless feeling about it. And this cabinetry is […]
