#design #furniture Designer Xiaoxi Shi creates the X-Plus table. He cuts three triangular areas from a single sheet of stainless steel, bends the sheet at their edge and welded together. The result is a modular object composed of two X shapes that works independently or arranged in a series.

#design #furniture Compas chair by french designer Patrick Norguet is a stackable chair that can be used indoors or outdoors. The seat and back of Compas are made in polypropylene, while the legs, positioned in an upside-down V-shape, are executed in pressure die-cast aluminium and finished with a weatherproof epoxy lacquer.

#design #furniture - Invisible City’s sideboard Incunabular takes its dimensions and ratios from the international paper standard ISO 216, Series A. The geometric rationale behind this series is the square root of 2, which maintains the aspect ratio of each subsequent module, i.e. A3, A4, A5 etc. Lovely bit of 1970’s detailing with the name plaque.

One of my favoruite pieces from Ronan & Erwan is the Slow Chair made in 2007 for Vitra. The Vegetal Chair (organic form) is also produced by Vitra.

If you are a frequent visitor to interior design or industrial design blogs, it is very possible you would have come across the work of two designers.  Not only sharing a passion for design and intriging attention to detail, but a surname.

Brothers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (born 1971 and 1976) have been working together for about ten years now. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their distinct personalities and a shared notion of diligence with the intention to reach more balance and fineness.

Take a look at the video for an insight into their design world. One of their most famous pieces the injection moulded vegetal chair can be seen in the next post.

Simple, honest handmade furniture from Slow Wood. Fine mix of Ash and Iron.

These are possibly the best bar stools I’ve come across in a while. The Picciotto bar stool by Fabio Vinetta is a must-have, starting with its unusual chapeau-inspired seat. Call it what you will – the paper boy, drivers cap, derby, cheese-cutter or paddy – I call it “awesome”! Like its inspiration, this modern bar stool is a casual “personality” piece for your home. 

Looking through my old inspiration folder on my PC rather than my mac, I’ve stumbled across this. No link, no info, but I thought you may apprieciate.

I love it when I stumble across a ‘making of’ video, even though often it involves a lovely mix of post poduction video wizardary and is usually a marketing tool. The behind the scenes / making of videos offer an insightful glimse of how designers work.

The making of the Lou Read armchair that Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet designed for the Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris. If you have a fast internet, watching in HD is a must!

Its not often you get to see prototypes, and pre-production images so when these little beauts popped up from Germany-based Studio Dreimann of 'The Little Ben side table'. I had to share. Wood turning is a beautiful manufacting process, if you ever get time to have a go, I thoroughly recommend it.
