Chairnificine: A Sinister Seat Indeed

The charmingly morbid Chairnificine, a concept developed by the Brazilian designer Gustavo Brenck, is as hilarious as it is dark.  Lazer-cut steel was bent and warped to develop this charming concept which looks like a perfectly comfortable chair if you can get past the subtle shape of a murdered person (not sure if you caught [...]

Step into the Future with the Sectionimal Table

Developed and designed by the digital design and fabrication studio gt_2P, the Sectionimal table is a fantastically nebulous but cleanly modern design that strikes you as something that would fit perfectly into an ultramodern cyberprep space design.  Part of a furniture series whose designs are developed using a computer program, the Sectionimal table is an [...]

Light-As-Air Linger Bench

Designer Alvin Tjitrowirjo’s appropriately named Linger Bench provides a fantastic concept for a casual sit, maybe a casual conversation.  Meant to infuse comfortably into natural surroundings, each bench is handmade and hand-bent into its shape.  Although this isnt’ the first time this type of material and style’s been utilized to develop furniture, the Linger Bench [...]

Reclaiming Giant Air Pipes: The T. Bailey Offices

Bailey Offices were designed to wholly incorporate the client’s product into its office space; and that product is a gigantic pipe used in wind turbine towers.  In fact, several were used through the 11,700 square foot space, where visitors walk [...]

Supernatural Concepts for a Rocking Chair and Bar Stool

The designers at Supernatural Studios have developed these sleek and original designs for what could’ve been a simple bar stool and rocking chair concept.  Completely ignoring the conventions of grandma’s rickety wooden rocker, the rocking chair seems more like something you’d expect to see in a minimalist’s or futurist’s living room: low to the ground, [...]

The Very Weighty Tables of Daniel Meise

Daniel Miese, an Austrialian designer with an interesting focus on heavy, study materials, developed three strong and in some ways forceful table designs called Bone, Bridge and Together, respectively.  First, the Bone table is a interestingly angled low-sitting piece that would be perfect for an urban retrofit loft (especially one with expose concrete and brick [...]

A Light Weight Design: The Primitive Series

Turin Design studio Nucleo have developed the appropriately-named “Primitive Series” of furniture which pretty clearly looks like weightless white granite. Although made from cardboard or foam and actually covered with resin to give it the style and stone-like quality, the materials allow the heavy-looking furniture and light fixtures to appear boxy, heavy, ancient and [...]

Undulating with Light: The Carbon 451 Lamp

More than simply a light fixture, New York designer Mark Tremonto’s ribbon-like Carbon 451 Lamp is the centerpiece for an interior space that really needs a cool focal point.  Designed from carbon fiber, the same reinforced plastic that manufacturers use to create car doors and reinforce helicopter tails, the Carbon 451 Lamp almost seems more [...]

Dominate the World from The Volcano House

In the dusty desert lands of Southern California, two hours east from the city of Los Angeles, lies the Volcano House: a concrete modernist masterpiece that sits on top of a small volcanic peak.  Truss beams and heavily-laid concrete formed the desert dome, which radiates a sort of tongue-in-cheek brutalism that screams 1960s American modernism [...]
