DMY Berlin Youngsters 2009 – Mushrooms Ate My Furniture

June 4th, 2009

“Mushrooms Ate My Furniture” is piece of garden furniture designed by Shinwei Rhoda Yen. The outer side of the stool is made of the hard-wood larch, the bark on the inner side is birch or pine embedded with mushrooms’ spawn. After some time the mushrooms will grow and degrade the wood. Eventually the stool will fall apart, the mushrooms ate it.

DMY Berlin Youngsters 2009 – Modulares Licht

June 4th, 2009

“Modulares Licht” is the diplom thesis of Robert Hoffmann. He made 3 different lights where you can tilt the sidepanels. So you can not only change their shapes but also control the light. Neat.

DMY Berlin Youngsters 2009 – O!Cap

June 3rd, 2009

O!Cap is a silicon lampshade designed by designlab. It is available in 3 different colours, but the catch is that they added different aroma’s to the silicon like lemongrass for example. So when you put one over an energy saving light bulb, the heat of the lamp sets the scent free.
You can go and see/smell them at DMY Berlin Youngsters.

DMY Berlin Youngsters 2009 – Nido

June 3rd, 2009

Tonight was the opening of the Youngsters exhibition of the DMY Berlin International Design Festival. The quality of the work on display was very good, in the next few posts I will present some of them.

Nido is a collection of 6 stools and tables by Eva Marguerre. They are made of fibreglass which makes them extremely light, between 840g and 1020g, but also very stable, they can carry up to 150kg. You should actually watch the videos in the moodgallery. The material and the resin give them a very nice texture. They are only available in laser red and cost €198. I’m sold.
Nido is also on the shortlist for the DMY Award, good luck next Friday!
