Arabella Seating from Stefan Heiliger for Leolux, an object with eccentric ways about it. The asymmetric shape thereby creates different seating experiences. Arabella offers a play on lines that at first sight seems familiar, but on closer inspection is surprising. Colour effects can harden or soften that effect at will.
Japanese designers Nendo draw black and white floorboards that appear to flow around plinths for their solo show at the Taiwanese government-sponsored National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute featuring two collections. ‘Thin Black Lines’ is a collection of furniture formed from ‘Still Black’, used ‘Active Black on White’ for the exhibition space. The drawings on the floor flow like river water around the exhibition stands. ‘Dancing Squares’ is a collection based on the concept of ‘Active White’. They wanted a space that expressed the idea of ‘Still Black on White’. The room-sized sketch, affixed to walls and floor, uses a fish-eye lens-like effect as though viewers are seeing it through a tiny water drop.

Despite of the fact that a broom is a very beautiful everyday object, it is usually hidden away in a cupboard unless it is used for cleaning. This broom incorporates a picture frame. So, when not in use, it functions as a flexible frame stand to be leant against any wall or furniture in the house.
Florian Kremb’s fresh way of looking at things has generated a diverse range of compelling and commercially successful ideas in the field of Product, Furniture and Graphic Design.
Typeshelf is a part of the ‘Flatobjects’ Series by New York based designer Ufuk Keskin. 2D cut -out letters in stainless steel sheet spelling out the word ‘shelf’ are bent by the user along perforations at its bottom to form the actual storage of the ‘typeshelf’. The material characteristics of steel provides a sturdy platform for books etc. without requiring additional hardware. The simple manufacturing process with minimum labour and energy/material consumption is suitable for low or high production which also makes customization possible. The ‘thinness’ of the design and flat-pack feature makes transportation and storage easier, less expensive and more environmental friendly.
