Corniches by Vitra

07 Nov 2012
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are back with something new for Vitra, the Swiss furniture manufacturer. The product was introduced during Milan design week and it's a product that tries to be a solution to the quest of creating small impromptu storage spaces to display items.

Radon floor lamp

When thinking about decorating my interior I'm not an impulsive buyer. I'm more 'the waiting until I hit on something type'. That's exactly what happened when I saw the beautiful floor lamp that I'll talk about today.

Leo scratching post

Some items are hard to find. One of these items that fall in that category are cat scratching posts. I've seen plenty and none of them are a pleasure to look at. Some are even hideous.
Good things come in small doses. You had to wait a bit but here is another special edition of some of my favorite discoveries of the last months. Hope you'll enjoy what you are about to see after the jump.
Not so long ago I received an invite to go to the launch of the Ikea PS collection for 2012 at Ikea Ghent. Unfortunately I was too busy to go but I kept my eye on it to see if it was something worthwhile to mention here. Now that I had some time to read up on it & explore the furniture I believe it is.

I love reading stories that turn a good idea into a real product. When that product thinks about the environment as well it becomes even more interesting. That's exactly what Lars Beller Fjetland did with his "Re-turned"-bird series.
From 7 till April 22th Milan, Italy was the center of furniture design again for the yearly Salone Internazionale del Mobile and the FuoriSalone also known as Milan design week. One of my favorite Dutch furniture brands had a presence there and I want to share the beautiful photos & dig a little deeper into the products shown.
I can't imagine the thoughts that must have crossed Antonio Citterio's mind when Vitra asked him to design a new type of lounge chair. It must have been daunting & challenging to do all that with a masterpiece like the Eames Lounge Chair in the collection. A bonus was undoubtedly the fact that he had worked together with Vitra on a regular basis for around 25 years.
I just discovered German manufacturer Böwer. For today's post I just picked out two of their pieces that really appeal to me because of their mimimal look and grapical appearance. Both are designed by Eric Degenhardt. What follows is the description of the furniture as they appeared on the Böwer web site.

Quarterre Bike Racks

02 Mar 2012
I'm staying on the topic of bike storage solutions this week. The ones you are about to see have "design" in common with the Bike Shelf by Knife & Saw that I featured previously.
