Haley Chair by Alexander Rehn

Haley Chair by Alexander Rehn

Yesterday I received my new Aalto stool, this time I went for the classic Stool 60 which has three legs and comes in the standard wood (I find this more authentic and original looking). I’m hoping to invest in something more substantial at a later date, possibly an office chair for work, which means it would get a lot of use! Something that’s come up after a discussion with another individual is the category of outdoor furniture, which isn’t some …

Brace by Designer and Craftsman Louie Rigano

One thing I’ve been pretty chuffed with lately is a new addition to the office space, a Vitsoe 606 universal shelving system. As you can imagine, when assembling it made me think about flat pack furniture and why there’s not many high quality systems out there in the market. For example, you’ll often either have to buy a chair in its entirety, with the stigma attached of it being higher …

Furniture and Functional Objects by TEORI

Furniture and Functional Objects by TEORI

It was a nice surprise to find this Japanese company named TEORI this week, they’re producing some superb items that also have a nice story and concept behind them. TEORI was founded in 1998 as a manufacturer of wood products in Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture. They specialise in making modern design objects out of bamboo, an eco-friendly material that grows much quicker than wood. Not only that, it’s also very …

Hans J. Wegner Short Films by BlackBird for Carl Hansen & Son

Next week I think I’ll get myself down to The Midcentury Show taking place at Lords in London. It wil be my first time but I’m looking forward to seeing some nice furniture and other goods up-close, preferably the classics that have aged well and have stayed modern over the years. To me it’s always more interesting to see the older models rather than newer models, although manufacture …

WB Furniture Series by Werner Blaser

WB Furniture Series by Werner Blaser

It takes some special furniture to get me inspired, I’ve seen so many different pieces over my lifetime that it’s got to the point where it’s hard to spot something new out there. Usually they have to be handmade and crafted, or have a quality backstory, ie be offering something unique and different. A lot of the time you have this contemporary furniture that isn’t really ‘designed’ as such, it’s just been made with the concept of being ‘trendy’, which …

Vang Chair by Norwegian Designer Andreas Engesvik

Vang Chair by Norwegian Designer Andreas Engesvik

I know I’m running the risk of turning this blog into a bit of a furniture fest, wasn’t my intention, but since I’ve started a little chair project of my own it seems to be ironic that I’d run across works of this nature. I become like a human magnet. Originally I thought it would be hard to find forms that might intrigue me, but just like this website I’ve had no problems inspiring myself and there’s an abundance of …

Stool 01 and Chair 01 by Daphna Laurens

In my pursuit of writing more in-depth articles on design and other subjects relating to that matter, you may see less frequent postings here of a trivial nature. Alongside personal projects that I’m trying to conquer in my spare time it makes sense to think slightly more complex and provide you with some content that’s ultimately unique and inspiring, but this would of course involve more time and research. Wire chair models are my latest …

Furniture at Monokraft

Furniture at Monokraft

Some delicious looking furniture I stumbled across at the start of the week by Monokraft, a Japanese company based in Tokyo. They’ve got a fantastic website that showcases their work beautifully, so I thought I’d bring a selection of my favourites across for all of you to admire. As I’ve said in previous posts it’s not always easy to find imagery that’s big enough but today I was really spoilt for choice! These workman use a mixture of …

Plywood Furniture in the Marcel Breuer Archive

Plywood Furniture in the Marcel Breuer Archive

Mr Breuer isn’t exactly a stranger to our archive, these modernist designers always seem to crop up again and again with their classic timeless designs, ones that I’m extremely envious of. Take for example these plywood furniture pieces by Marcel sourced from his ever growing digital archive, it’s a fantastic place to pick up inspiration and general tips and tricks in terms of drawing and idea generation. Very informative and great for all …

A Selection of Furniture by NAUT Design

A Selection of Furniture by NAUT Design

With our recent release in the shop of the book nest by TRUCK Furniture, which has been ever so popular, I’ve been thinking to myself that we should buy a few items from the TRUCK shop, particular the stools and some chairs for our office. Originally I thought this would be a bit out of my reach considering the shipping all the way from Japan that I’ve been following for the past year named NAUT, they own a showroom/shop in Nagoya …
