A lot of the very artistic furniture are created for the visual appeal minus the practicality, yet I believe that Cocoon1 has managed to play nice with both beauty and practicality. What Cocoon1 is, is a big transparent room that you can fit in and pretty much do whatever you want. What makes this sphere special is its customisation, you simply dont just sit there and arch your back, you get to move fitted blocks and mix and ...

According to 56th Studio, “Bad drawing is a good chair” and as weird as that sounds, it is true to their caricature chair sets which are designed around simple shapes yet result in something outstanding. The whole idea is centered around pop culture, movies and cartoons where they are stripped from all their details, kept their basic outlines and formed chairs. Most of the sets they created are outstanding by my applause has to go to ...

I remember when I was a child I’d see a Mitsubishi car but only later that I discovered that they are more than just a car manufacturer, they make pens, A/Cs, electronics etc. IKEA, the beloved affordable furniture store is slightly expanding their arsenal by creating a TV set called Uppleva. As they suggest, TV’s clutter everything, their bulky shapes, colors and wires that tangle and ruin the simplicity of your furniture, so they integrated both ...

The designer calculated the design and studied where the legs tend to fall off and how far off and based ...

This is a uniquely designed sofa by creative artist Judson Beaumont called The Hollow Chair. The name of the chair already states what it is but let me explain further, it is a simple old school inspired single seat sofa where the insides are taken off, come to think about it, they were never necessary and instead of the sponge you get your own personal storage under. Storing as a concept is not new but storing ...

This is a very unique take on traditional rocking chairs, you know the bulky ones that most associate with elder people, not for this chair though. This chair is called Sway and it more of a modern interpretation of a “rocking chair”, it sure has the benefits of a rocking chair but one thing it does better is that it is made for two. The chair itself is very spacious and there isn’t a correct way ...

This is a pretty little apartment Located in Kiev, Ukraine and was designed by Sergey Makhno and I absolutely love “most” of it. The thing that attracts me most would obviously how mind bending it is, using simple and sharp geometry pleases my eyes with an instant. Everything is brought to a better visual appeal with the use of the lighting’s shape as it is distinctive and you just do not see that everyday. I also ...

This McDonald’s located in France has a very beautiful interior to the point where it makes other McDonald’s branches look like a big toilet filled with tiles. Designed by architect Patric Norguet this McDonald’s was designed with the idea of “family” in mind meaning the combination of creative space, technology and atmosphere had to be incorporated. The restaurant may not look very McDonald’s-ish but it is, using the same color palettes and the addition of high ...

Part of Stuart Melrose’s new furniture collection that will go on display at the Interiors UK event late January 2012, are these cute monster cabinets. One uses drawers as a head, the other as a body and lastly something more of an octopus. One thing for sure, they are very unique and blends bright colors with wood just right. To me they are a work of art but for kids it might really make their nightmares ...

The same case is here with these trunks which they have turned to something really great. A regular ...

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard, 7 billion people occupy planet earth and making things smaller is both modernism and essential considering the number. We are all familiar with transforming sofas where the bottom part of the sofa can be dragged out and you got yourself a bed. Usually convenient in concept but usually it is a hassle to transform it, it is either to heavy or even transforms halfway though only. However, the people at Bonbon (a UK-based ...

The world has an infinite amount of creativity within it, so its hard to find something truly original or something really out of the ordinary. But when I saw this design called “Stitching concrete” by industrial design graduate Florian Schmid, I was genuinely impressed. The designer uses a new material called Concrete Canvas (a material that was originally developed to create shelters for refugees), which he molds into stools by folding fabric that’s impregnated with cement ...
