Keith Haring Chairs via Vilac

August 31, 2009

It seems as if Keith Haring’s art is being translated to all sorts of objects lately, especially after seeing Vilac’s Haring inspired domino set, via Curated Magazine. Produced by Vilac, the playful seating furniture is sized for children and built with the same exacting attention to detail as the company puts into all their wooden toys. Available now from Unica Home, so check them out.

Seeing Keith Haring’s art work being put into household items brings excitement to me. I love the chairs, what do you think?

Pete Oyler’s Stretch Shelf

July 29, 2009

Pete Oyler, a recent graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, is the mastermind behind the Stretch Shelf, an innovative interior shelving unit made of cast rubber and machined aluminum.

And here comes Pete Oyler with an innovative home shelving system. Essentially, this shelving unit is a giant rubber band. I love the creativity and design of this, but what are your thoughts?

The Flatshare Fridge by Stefan Buchberger

July 14, 2009

Flatshare Fridge, by Stefan Buchberger, a design student at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, allows each person in your household to have their own personal refrigerator space. The fridge consists of a base station and up to four stackable modules, with handles on the sides of the modules make them easy to transport. The modules allow each individual user to have his/her own refrigerator space and can be customized with various colorful skins as well as with add-ons like a bottle opener or a whiteboard.

“I decided to create Flatshare fridge because there is nothing more disgusting than a dirty fridge in a shared flat,” he says. “At the time, I was living in such a flat!” He also says, “If you move to new flat, you can just transport your module like a suitcase and hook it up to the base station in your new flat,”

Quite honestly, I love this concept by Stefan Buchberger. Regardless of if it is yourself or multiple roommates using the Flatshare Fridge, it has the potential to be a kitchen life saver. When I ran across this concept, I began to imagine how cool it would be to be able to divide up certain foods/drinks into separate modules. Personally, this is an awesome design. Thoughts?

The Ping Pong Door

July 9, 2009

Designed by Tobias Fränzel, the ping pong door functions just like any ordinary door except there’s an inner panel that flips down to make a ping pong table; pop the plastic net on and get your paddles ready. The only requirements are the adjacent rooms have enough room for you to play in. However, the only downside is that one side of the door looks normal while the other is bright green, but nonetheless the ping pong door is an amazing invention.

The Ping Pong Door

Honestly, this is one of the cooler inventions that I have seen in a while. Plus, it is entirely practical for all homes and offices. This is one of those items that make you realize we still have a lot more things to invent. It seems so obvious and yet it took this long for someone to come up with this. This is creativity and innovation at its finest. Thoughts?

The Scratch DJ Coffee Table

July 9, 2009

The Scratch DJ coffee table from Bughouse features a distressed image of a pair of turntables and a mixer under its glass top. As an added bonus, you can customize it by placing your favorite records on top of each platter. Too bad it won’t actually play your music, but still a very cool concept. It’s available from Bughouse Art + Design for $850.

If it weren’t for the price, I’d love to pick one up.


Illuminant Lamp

May 11, 2009

Wait, I had to take a second look to see that the lamp is not sitting on the table, but is instead being suspended by fishing wire from above and is being illuminated by the light directly below. Nonetheless, this concept is super duper dope and I would not mind having this in my room. In my opinion, the “illuminant lamp” is amazing.

Illuminant Lamp

The shade is made of reflective materials and suspended from the ceiling by fishing wire, the son suspended luminaries cut into strips 2 mm thick, which could be referring to tentacles of a jellyfish-are made from the same reflective material normally used for safety clothing. The bulb is placed in a cylinder on the ground and comes illuminate from below, giving life to this creature.

Gaetano Pesce x Meritalia

May 11, 2009

Here is a pretty dope concept for furniture and design. I was skeptical at some of his work, but I really did appreciate this mountain set due to its creativeness, uniqueness, and its out of the box style; though, there is not a box at all so, ha.

Gaetano Pesce x Meritalia

A rogue practitioner, Gaetano Pesce has made a career out of challenging the status quo. This year, with no less than three new collections for the furniture producer Meritalia, he proves his mastery once again. Though I do not think I would place this in my home ever, Pesce’s new creations drew from me an applause that has yet to fade.
