The Ripple Effect Tea Table.


According to Korean designers Jeonghwa Seo and Hanna Chung, easterners commonly believe that small changes of an individual person or object can make big impact on the larger society, thus, leading to a modest and totalitarian culture. (Basically, cool little things make us happy.)  This social tendency described as a ‘ripple effect’ was translated here into tea ceremony table.  As part of his graduation project for IM Masters Design Academy Eindhoven, ‘ripple effect tea table’ by Korean industrial designer Jeonghwa Seo in partnership with Hanna Chung is a reflection of eastern mentality towards social relationships.  Ripples are created on the top water layer of the table surface every time the tea cup and saucer are moved by the user.  Through this project, Seo and Chung wanted to emphasize the importance of considering cultural mentality and context as a backdrop to their work. I still have no idea where to buy one though. #SadFace

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.

White Animal Life (WAL) Tableware


animal

White Animal Life (WAL) tableware, a collection created by Amsterdam-based interior designer Emilie Kröner, attracted attention, for example, at this year’s New York and Milan Design Weeks. The collection includes a rhino and hippo oil-and-vinegar set, elephants as salt and pepper shakers, a flamingo carafe, leopard napkin holders, and a crocodile serving dish perfect for candy, olives or asparagus. In all, White Animal Life is a decidedly ill-functioning set of curiosities for the table. Or, if that is too harsh a description, at least Kröner puts form and beauty bravely ahead of function.

The Crashed Ferrari Coffee Table.


This is a coffee table containing the compacted remains of a Ferrari inside constructed by designer Charly Molinelli.  He came up with the idea after a customer asked him to design something “a bit special” for their front room.  He then sourced a wreck and built a wooden cabinet on wheels to present to his client – although the price of the swanky piece is unknown.

Multi-Touch DJ Tables…


Recently, some peoples worlds have been turned upside down once again with a multitouch-enabled DJ rig built by Gregory Kaufman. The set up employs a gesture-based interface that lets you spin the virtual turntables and use a variety of taps and finger swipes to replicate the main functions of a regular DJ deck. What’s more, Kaufman says that the only gear a DJ would have to carry is a USB drive with their own music and settings, which they’d simply plug into the multitouch table at a club — assuming the idea catches on universally, that is. To top things off, the system would also be able to accommodate regular DJ gear for some added flexibility, and even provide enough room for two DJs if you’re looking to battle or share the stage.  I instantly see some functionality issues, and I can already hear the massive classic vinyl crowd crying about how it makes you less of a “true DJ” when you use it.  But personally I think the concept is worth taking some time to consider, and I would totally be interested if someone put one of these in front of me to try out.
