Rhino Chair by Maximo Riera

Posted on 2nd September by admin with Comments Off

The Rhino Chair was designed by Spanish designer Maximo Riera and it is what we like to call a seating unit with a strong attitude. After all, it is not everyday designers choose to mix furniture with the mightiness of a rhino, while conserving its natural proportions. It is not the first time that Maximo Riera dazzles the mind with his designs. Rhino Chair is the part of The Animal Chair collection created by Riera. According to the designer, the project was created by using a strong inner frame along its body for stability and balance. We imagine this would be an interesting looking chair for a manager’s office. Rhino Chair can be observed live in detail at 100% design London from September 22 to 25, 2011.

The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles, and even including insects. Each creation retains the animal’s natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.

Máximo Riera has been a practicing artist for over thirty years. Whilst predominantly working in photography, painting and sculpture, he has also published a collection of poetry. Inspired by his travel and experiences through Europe and the Caribbean Islands, Máximo’s vibrant use of color and evocative attention to detail has been an inspiration which convey the meaning of his creations. His work also demonstrates a predominant influence from abstract expressionism and the Pop Art movements.

Cortiça Chaise Lounge by Daniel Michalik

Posted on 29th July by admin with Comments Off

Cortiça is a full-size chaise lounge with a place for head, heels, and everything in between. Since it is made of cork, a renewable material, it’s lightweight, naturally waterproof (and buoyant), and impervious to rot and mold. Cortiça can be used indoors or outdoors. The balanced form, along with the pliability of the material allows the user to rock gently from side to side or on her back with a great degree of stability. The result is a sensation of floating, weightless yet totally supported With proper care, Cortiça will provide comfortable and attractive seating for a lifetime.

Cortiça is the current product of this research, and it is the flagship of my latest line of cork furniture. At over 72 inches long, it is a full-size chaise longue with a place for head, heels, and everything in between. The natural flexibility of cork allows it to form fantastic, complex shapes no other material can match. Because cork is 100% waterproof and impervious to rot and mold growth, this piece functions as well outdoors as it does in.

The designer’s work focuses on researching and expanding the uses of underutilized, unconventional material. Investigation of new materials can only lead to innovative methods of production and new ways of interacting with our environment. Her recent work taps the rich potential of cork, an engaging, environmentally responsible material which is completely sustainable, recyclable, and plentiful. With this new work the designer has tried to explore the deep potential of this wonderfully tactile material, making it do things that only it can do.

Bold armchair by Big-Game

Posted on 5th July by admin with Comments Off

Swiss designers Big-Game launched an armchair that looks like a quilt-covered deckchair at the Villa Noailles design festival in France this weekend. Designed for French brand Moustache, the Bold armchair is a stylish one seater upholstered armchair. The thick proportions make this comfortable seat a part of the BOLD family and join it the fabric-covered Bold chair, which was part of Moustache’s inaugural collection when the brand launched in Milan in 2009. The upholstered structure is entirely covered with thick quilted fabric.

With offices in Switzerland and Belgium, Big Game is a great source of inspiration.  With new methods and uses of common materials, like cardboard and foam, their team has shown limitless possibilities for the modern home. “Confrontation is giving birth to progress”: they always address unexpected themes in their own collections, mixing different universes. Now, the fact that their products were edited shows how realism and attention raise to industrial processes.

“Moustache” is the name of the furniture label by Stéphane Arriubergé and Massimiliano Lorio. Moustache aims to break out of the established structures of the furniture market and open up new domestic perspectives and new horizons of combination and variation. With no trace of nostalgia it intends to reevaluate existing objects, instead of exacting artificial innovations that no-one needs. Moustache’s first collection appeared in 2009 and included tables and chairs, luminaries, storage unit systems, shelving and closets by the designers Matali Crasset, Inga Sempé, Big-Game, François Azambourg, and Ana Mir + Emili Padros and brought a breath of fresh air to the furniture market.

Stylish and ingenious wardrobe design

Posted on 1st July by admin with Comments Off

Taking into consideration one of the most important aspects of home furniture, one may find picking the wardrobe as a challenging endeavor. It has to fit in the space and provide extensive storage, and preferably be visually not intrusive, even pleasing.

The large sliding doors or sliding surfaces allow easy access to everything inside the closet. If you have a whole wall to spare, then the bigger the closet, the more it blends into the space configuration like a customized wall, with elegant white doors and practically invisible handles in blonde wood casing, or perhaps sleek and glossy dark red surfaces, or translucent polycarbonate doors with integrated light.

A well-designed and organized wardrobe can make it much easier to find what you are looking for. They can also be used to store whatever you need. There are many different styles of doors to choose from including sliding closet doors, mirrored closet doors, and bi-fold doors. Modern and contemporary wardrobes have evolved over the years into more user friendly and attractive pieces of furniture. Before installing a wardrobe in your room, certain things are to be noted.

When installing a wardrobe, select one that is made from the finest materials. Any wardrobe door design you choose should be one that will make your clothes or items you store accessing very easy. Modern wardrobe designs you choose should be made of durable and low-maintenance materials.  A modern wardrobe design provides same finish on the Front and Back of the shutter, dual or multi color for shutters/doors and no chipping as the shutter is completely wrapped.
