Colourful Cabinets

Launched at London Design Week as part of Tent, I saw this piece from Yorkshire-based designer Anthony Hartley. Using oak, he creates these colourful cabinets by hand laminating each ply drawer, spraying and lacquering. The bright range of colours cry out to be touched, with their smooth wave like texture.

The Life After Corkage

An inspirational design of a bar stool and an ottoman from Gessato. Looking more at the bar stool side of the design, it shows how a restaurant can recycle the many wine and champagne corks they use into furniture. I believe that the corks acting as a cushion would be much more comfortable than some of the other stools i’ve seen made from plastic that you can sit on for only about 5 minutes. The corks are enclosed in a breathable, durable mesh fabric allowing the seat to move with the body. Love the idea.

Hole in the Floor

Hole in the Floor is a serious of ingenious shelving units for a private commission in 2010. From the design studio Raw Edges, these units are based on the idea of things ending unexpectedly. The resemble vertical drawers that are sliced at the bottom. Not quite sure how they get those books so far down, but it’s an interesting concept, making you do a double take. Simple and thought provoking.

Geek Clock

Available in both Maths and Science ranges, this clock adds a challenge to something as simple as reading the time. On both styles the user needs to work out the problem to discover the correct number. Of course it is also simple enough to know that “52 – x2 + x = 10″ happens to be in the “7 o’clock” position, but those whole like some mental arithmetic, this is for you. The Maths one seems a little easier than the Science, but allows you to gain knowledge of some pop quiz questions.

Bathroom Sink Design

From the Italian company Componendo comes this beautiful collection called Quattordici. Using a combination of stainless steel and walnut/rosewood they create a gorgeous contrast between the harshest of materials, and the softest. Accentuating the difference with a slant in the legs. Beautiful statement piece.

Toolbox to Wall Storage

A great Before and After sequence from Kim Knoll shown on Design Sponge. Using the shell of an old tool box, she revamped it and attached it to her wall for an eye-catching display! Kim says “A great tip for getting the life back in wood that’s aged a little too much is to use a wood conditioner. It’s great for restoring the original wood, but still keeps the aged effect.
