Kicki Edgren Nyborg thinks different. Where people see 2D wallpaper patterns, he sees shelves and lighting! Brilliant!
I have just came across these beautiful Shrub Tables by Liu Zhili, the same brilliant designer of the Sparrow, Dove & Nightingale lamps that we featured a while back. I simply love how he exposed the screws for the legs onto the tabletop, making them features of the design rather than something he needs to hide. Seems like we have a thing for his nature inspired, uncluttered designs.
I have always admired street furniture. These are pieces of furniture that, in its lifetime, will be used more than any other furniture made. They have to be weather proof, vandalism proof and easy to maintain. On top of that, they should always serve the dual purpose of being public sculptures as well as letting you rest your feet. Tall order I know, but once in a while, someone comes along and not only meet the criteria but surpasses them.
BMW Group Designworks USA does cars. And they do them really well. So it is really exciting when they get a chance to translate the smooth lines of a BMW into street furniture that intrigues and excites! My only question is, when is Singapore getting a set? via Contemporist
“Made from 10,000 drinking straws, the Clutch Chair is an exploratory research piece that passes comment on our disposable culture. The development process of this piece also informed that of the Clutch Light, both of which were developed from an observation of the structural characteristics of trees.”
This piece was selected by Zaha Hadid as her Curators Choice at Noise Festival 2008.
