Short Film on “The Chair” by PP Mobler

I’ve been sitting on this project for a while now so I have apologise somewhat, as I’m sure many of you are eager to see PP Mobler putting together Hans J Wegner’s design of “The Chair”. I’ve been debating with myself whether the film quality was on a par with everything else we’ve previously shared here, but in all honesty I think this project is worthy of being an exception to the rule, as we have a bit of a soft spot for this designer here. As you will soon …

Starling Chair by Cameron Foggo

This is my second post on an item of furniture this week, hopefully we won’t go five days straight with a chair everyday, although if we have seating options like this I won’t be complaining and hopefully you won’t either. The chair that I’ve picked out today is titled the Starling Chair and has been designed by Cameron Foggo, a second-generation furniture designer. He joined his by Cameron Foggo, a second-generation furniture …

sm05 by Cees Braakman

Today I thought I’d bring across some nice imagery of a chair and also some history and background to go alongside it. This specific piece, named sm05, was designed by Dutch designer Cees Braakman in 1958 and was one of the first chairs to be entirely fabricated from steel wire. It’s a classic design, something that may remind you on the Charles and Ray Eames Wire Chair, but comes with some functional aspects such as the backrest being …

Poul Kjærholm Furniture Collection Imagery

Over the weekend I was roaming around different furniture design websites and I was lucky enough to stumble across this wonderful imagery of Poul Kjærholm’s furniture via Fritz Hansen. Although I’ve heard of Poul and have seen his works over the years I’ve not really looked into his history as a designer, so I thought I would use this post as a source of information and tell you some interesting things I found out abo …

Enzo Mari and his Sedia 1 Chair

I’m sure you’ve seen this imagery of Enzo Mari before and his Sedia 1 chair but I couldn’t help but pull it up on my own terms and explain a bit about why I like it. Recently I’ve dived back into my “Super Normal” book by Jasper Morrison and Naoto Fukasawa which has inspired me heavily to go routing around more. For some reason after reading an interview with Jasper I wanted to revisit Enzo’s works and see if there were …

A Mixture of Furniture Works by Jean Prouvé

Last night I went on a bit of a knowledge jaunt and sent myself back in time to find out about previous designers, philosophers and thinkers, something I’ve found myself doing more and more of over the past year. My library of design books is slowly reaching the realms of uncontrollable, but I can’t bare to part with them as they offer an abundance of inspiration on a regular basis. One book I’ve yet to acquire is about …

The Making of the Series 7 Designed by Arne Jacobsen

This video is extremely old but I was blown away when watching it this morning and it sort of led me onto researching a bit more into Arne Jacobsen and his works, particularly the Syveren (Seven) series chair. This pressure moulded veneer chair seen here is apparently one of the most sold chairs in furniture history and is a further development of the famous …

I’m positive you’ll all agree that we’ve had some absolutely stunning furniture featured on the blog over the past month, I’ve had a blast learning about all these different designers and their works. I’m not sure when it will come to an end, but it’s really intriguing to find out the history behind these beautiful objects and also the creatives thirst for knowledge and information regarding the “user experience”. I like to call it that …

Selection of furniture from Finn Juhl

In a bid to keep my mind off the shop for a moment, I went on a search for a little design inspiration this morning and ended up visiting the work of the late, great Danish designer Finn Juhl. Finn was known as an architect, industrial and interior designer as well as a master of furniture. As one of the leading figures that helped to define what Danish design is to us all today, it is both his vision and multifaceted career that we …
