Visible/Invisible Furniture by Takeshi Miyakawa

Shown at Salon 94 during New York Design Week 2013. After assembly, these pieces have been bent and distorted by heat creating an interesting wrinkle like texture.

Confluentia by Bina Baitel


First prize winner of the international contest for contemporary Aubusson tapestry.
Confluentia project, at the junction between furniture and tapestry, joins in a weaving carpeted furniture and pill rug of Aubusson.
Two wood bedside tables embellished with a tapestry are connected by it, creating a new link, a part of space in the space.
The object appears as a landscape, in the manner of the Aubusson tapestry of the seventeenth and eighteenth century, it is seen as a flat stretch between two woody reliefs.
A domestic landscape creating by the union of two familiar typologies in housing world: side furniture and rug. The tapestry presents an abstract drawing suggesting a peaceful space, like a lake, while being lively by the gush of two headwaters inviting to contemplation.
We can see the pattern of a topographical map, by definition, the drawing of a place. A hybrid territory, a micro-landscape between design furniture and tapestry.
The user goes inside the landscape, lives the scene and becomes an actor in the tapestry. Thus, the action is not only set-up by the look of the tapestry but also ” with, around, on”.
The interlacing of threads and colors is mixed up to build Confluentia, point of confluence between perception in-visu and experience in-situ.

11 Pieces of Fantastically Geeky Furniture


 

Most geeks have plenty of nerdy knickknacks piled around the house. But if you really want your fandom to shine, do it with your home décor. Here are 11 of the coolest geek furniture designs from around the net.

1. The Nintendo Controller Table

One of the most famous pieces of geek furniture in the world, Charles Lushear’s Nintendo controller table is also one of the most functional. That’s because it not only serves as a coffee table, but it can also serve as a giant NES controller. Talk about fun furniture.

2. A Scrabble Seating Area

 

While the letter holder couches and tile-inspired pillows are already enough to make this seating area fantastic, the use of the center and triple word squares as tables really ties the whole Scrabble area together.

3. A Tetris Chair

Sure, anyone could design a chair that looks like it is made from Tetris pieces, but if you really want to celebrate the classic game, the pieces need to be able to come apart, and that’s why Gabriel Cañas’ Tetris chair is so darn perfect. Of course, only Tetris experts should ever take it apart, otherwise they may never be able to put it back into chair shape again.

4. A Millennium Falcon Bed

 

 

Of course, Kayla Kromer’s Millennium Falcon bed might be the sexiest piece of geek furniture in the galaxy –especially when she’s curled up on it in her full Princess Leia outfit.

 

5. The Totoro Bed

Part bed, part sleeping bag, this Totoro sleeping area provides all the cuddliness of your favorite Hayao Miyazaki character. While it’s made for kids, it is reasonably large, so adults can use it too, but if you really need to stretch out, there are larger versions available on eBay.

6. Mario World Shelves and Table

Neatorama reader Dennis built this amazing set of shelves and the matching table with his girlfriend Judith. The best part is the top middle shelf that is boosted above the rest because Mario and Luigi obviously just jumped into it to get a red mushroom.

7. The Pac-Man Chair

For those who prefer munching pills and ghosts to locking blocks in place, the PacM chair by Jose Jorge Hinojosa Primo is a great way to curl up in nostalgia for your favorite old-school game.

8. An iPhone Table

More of a modernist? Then don’t miss out on this great iPhone table by iLounge readers Tuan Nguyen and Ken Thomas. Not only does it look great, but the apps are actually functional – at least, as coasters.

9. The Literal Periodic Table

If you really want a geektastic table though, there’s no better option than this beautiful Periodic Table that comes complete with samples of every element contained therein.  In case you’re wondering, all the elements are contained within clear acrylic blocks in order to help preserve and store the samples safely.

10. The Han Solo Desk

For a sci-fi look in your home office, it’s hard to beat this beautiful Han Solo in carbonite desk, with light-up sides that fit in perfectly with the theme and a heavy glass top so you don’t risk messing up Han’s perfect face while typing out your epic Star Wars fan fiction.

 

 

 

The Shady Illusion Lamp.


yoy_light_02

Now you see it, now you don’t. This clever lamp is our latest obsession.  Simply called “LIGHT, it brings new meaning to “throwin’ shade.” Flip it on and light shines through a finely cut hole to create the illusion of a classic lamp shade shape against your wall. Minimal with a touch of humor, it’s attractive, interesting and a total conversation starter.

Heat Sensitive Furniture?


furniture2This creative furniture is created by designer Jay Watson. It consist of simple black table and a bench that he calls Linger A Little Longer, and all that it needs is some warm touch to show you it’s magic.  What makes this ordinary furniture so special – heat sensitive paint (thermochromic finish) that reacts to heat source. It can be your body or maybe warm cup of coffee, anything that emits some kind of heat and the simple black table starts to react by transferring your heat footprint to it’s surface creating some kind of watercolor paintings, or X-rays.  The “watermark” will eventually begin to faint as the table cools down, and will again be flat black.

Furniture You Can Hang On A Wall?


hanging-canvas-furniture-03

YOY Design Studio has come up with a concept for two-dimensional furniture, called he Hanging Canvas Furniture.  Canvas is a series of two-dimensional furniture pieces that can be displayed on the wall as works of art and, unexpectedly, can also be sat on like real furniture.  Each piece is made from wood and aluminum and then covered with screen-printed elastic fabric. It comes in three variations: a stool, a love seat, and a sofa.  Just lean the frame against a wall and invite your guests to take a seat in them. When weight is applied against the canvas, it stretches and comfortably adapts to the sitter.

From Scribbles To Furniture.


DaigoFukawaRoughSketchProducts14 DaigoFukawaRoughSketchProducts13-1 DaigoFukawaRoughSketchProducts11 DaigoFukawaRoughSketchProducts10 DaigoFukawaRoughSketchProducts13 DaigoFukawaRoughSketchProducts7At first glance, you might think these scenes are just rough line drawings along a wall. However, upon closer inspection, it quickly becomes clear that each “illustration” is actually formed out of purposefully arranged wire. Entitled Rough Sketch Products, the series of unique pieces was developed by Tokyo University of the Arts student Daigo Fukawa for his 2013 senior thesis exhibition.  When seated upon the scribbles that compose the bench and the variety of chairs, it looks as if visitors are caught in the middle of a drawing that hasn’t quite been finished. The creations offer a world of imagination that instills a sense of playfulness in those who sit upon it. The functional 3D sketches are an amazing take on furniture design and would certainly add a touch of whimsy to any room.

Smart Mirror 2.0


01 04

From the kitchen to the bathroom or living room creative and useful furniture and home decor help us create a house to love. And it’s much more interesting than ordinary products make unordinary things. For example, designer Robert Grynkofki created the Mirror 2.0, which uses voice command, face and gesture recognition technology. Two LCD displays are placed behind a one-way mirror with a camera for face recognition, sensors for motion control and a microphone for voice control. To keep you entertained the mirror plays your music or movies, displaying your e-book or streaming the news. If that is not enough, it even communicates reminders or gives you updates on the weather; it can moderate the room temperature and dim the lights.

Space-Saving Suspended Bed in a Modern London Apartment


suspendedbedapt6 suspendedbedapt5 suspendedbedapt4 suspendedbedapt3 suspendedbedapt2

Good urban architectural design takes space and aesthetic into account, allowing them to work in unison, much like this efficient London apartment in Camden. While some compact residences use a modular design to create the visual effect of more space, this particular English home opts to design vertically by featuring a suspended bed overhead. This innovative apartment allows inhabitants to have more walking room on the ground floor without disrupting the tastefully modern design. The bed hangs above the living area like an elegant, simple balcony with a equally complementing staircase leading up to it. The bed is also situated below a retractable glass skylight that leads to a 500-square-foot rooftop garden. It proves that smaller living spaces don’t mean cramped, unattractive environments.
