Woodstock

I love the idea of simple mobile furniture solutions that can be assembled and disassembled for easy moving. Living in New York there seems to be a constant flow of packing and unpacking. Personally the longest I have ever lived in one place was 3 years, but otherwise by the time I have gotten settled and set up in a place its time to look for another. Jeroen van Leur has designed a perfect wardrobe solution for this quandary. The Woodstock Wardrobe is both simple and easy to take apart and bring to the next place. It provides a significant amount of additional hanging storage without being space specific.

Lain Shelf

The organized nature of mine draws me to any and all shelving. Lain is an awesome little unit, which comes flat packed in a box that doubles as a stand for quick and easy assembly. Designed by Pablo García Guardiola and Laura Caceres by removing the need for tools or any fixing elements like screws or adhesives.

Rokur

The concept behind this ultra minimalist rocking chair was to embody the look and feel of relaxation. When I relax I personally feel a little more amorphous or at least less rigid. That aside the design by Purpose Inc. is really beautiful and the profile view almost resembles the floor plan of an oddly shaped building.

Tidy Up Your Life

Vitsoe was one of the first ways I discovered and fell in love with Dieter Rams. This wonderful short film documents a couple’s home in Munich who have been living with the Vitsoe shelving system since the 1960s. It has become such an important and integral roll in there lives that it is in every room and almost disappears beneath or behind the things which occupy it. The most intriguing part to me was how Monica said in reference to the 606 system being open or visible. “Because your life is always visible, it is you what is shown.” I think this is a phenomenal sentiment. How a shelving system can be viewed as a living monument or museum to your life. The things we keep, value, and display help to paint a picture of we are or may aspire to be.

Divider

Simple modular shelving is not hard to come by, but finding a unique system that is both functional and well designed can be difficult. The Divider designed by Mieke Meijer is a great example of one such piece. A few things that really caught my attention was the angled roof like framing at the top of the shelf, the nice contrast between the wood pieces and the metal brackets, and the small size of the shelving compartments.

Plank Sofa

Today being one of the first damp dark days of fall I would love to be curled up on my couch at home surfing the web. The Plank sofa designed by KnudsenBergHindenes is definitely what I picture in my head when I daydream of being home on my sofa. This minimal design incorporates a simple two plank wood construction made from douglas spruce with beautifully turned wooden legs. A simple yet appropriate upholstered top nestles into the L shape created by the joining of the planks and leaves a broad expanse of the flat top open as a perfect end table.

Hide and Seek Space Dividers

Why do space dividers have to be hulking and ugly or bland and unrefined? The truth is they don’t have to be. Ploypan Theerachai or Thai design firm Thinkk Studio has demonstrated with her concept ‘Hide and Seek’. The design process was informed by play and integrating that into the forms and outcome of furniture and products.

‘Lately, designs have efficiently answered their functions. another new object then needs to attract users among all other perfectly functional objects. The project is an object that not only blurs the line between function and emotional appeal, but also maintains physical performance while addressing
emotional needs.’
– Theerachai

Meccanica

Meccanica is a super versatile light weight shelving solution engineered by Valcucine for Demode. My favorite part about this system has to be its versatility. It can literally be applied in every room and space in the house to organize or display your belongings. One of my favorite uses is the indoor garden with all the potted plants, and the industrial look of the kitchens which use it is really interesting as well. The system is customizable, from adding drawers to how it is fixed to the floor wall or hanging.

The Big Table

There isn’t anything more beautiful and inspiring in this world than a driven designer who loves to get her hands dirty and make things. My friend from design school Ariele Alasko is the truest embodiment of that sentiment. Ariele’s work transcends the restrictions of terms such as sculpture, furniture, and art and becomes something greater. Her use of found and reclaimed materials paired with geometric shapes and patterns is simply remarkable. Keep up with all her amazing new work and exploits over on her blog and site Brooklyn To West.

Cache Storage Cabinet

Somewhere between the Eames’ designs and the evolution of Scandinavian design, which had a large influence on Charles and Ray’s work, exists this cabinet. The Cache Storage Cabinet with its clean lines and contrasting panels was designed by Montreal based Zoë Mowat. Zoë has an amazing skill of accentuating the simplicity of her pieces through bold contrast of color and material. It also gives her pieces a nice organizational or puzzle piece sort of quality.
