Soft Wood

June 15th, 2010

Soft Wood is a series of chairs designed by Veronika Wildgruber that appear at first to be made in fabric with the soft appearance of pillows. But in reality they are sculpted in solid wood. The chairs trick the mind because the surface and texture connotes the opposite of what we think and know about the characteristics of wood.

Split Chair by Daniel Lorch

June 10th, 2010

At this years DMY Berlin, Daniel Lorch presented his latest project: Split Chair. It’s a combination of traditional tube bending with the newest 3D laser-technology. The result is exactly how I like it: smart and simple.

Ikea Robotics

June 7th, 2010

Ikea Robotics was Adam Lassy his thesis project at ITP, Tisch School of the Arts in New York. He modified Ikea furniture to create mobile, wireless robots which can sense the spatial needs of it’s owner. The first video demos this behaviour. The second I find even more interesting, here he programmed the furniture to display some animal characteristics.

Chippensteel 0.5

May 17th, 2010

The Chippensteel 0.5 is a chair designed by Oskar Zieta. This chair is made with exactly the same production technique called FiDU as his stool Plopp. FiDU is an abbreviation for German “FreieInnenDruckUmformung” – the Internal Pressure Forming. It means that two shapes cut from steel sheets are welded around their edges and inflated into a 3d object under high pressure. I really like the simplicity of this technique and Oskar seems to push its boundaries to the limit.

Porcelain Chairs

April 30th, 2010

These porcelain chairs by Sam Durant, are reproductions of different styles of mono-block resin chairs. Exactly those kind of chairs which you can find all over the world and super ugly. But these colors and the porcelain make them look ok again.
