Best MoCo Objects This Week
by Harry / January 19, 2009

This week's picks:

+ Gitta Gschwendtner's Bag stools at iconeye, "casts of the negative space of paper bags turned upside down, making the base of the bag a perfect seating area."

+ WHOMADE's impronta vases at designboom featuring shoe imprints, they're "constructed using rubber shoe tooling that is no longer in use. Cut glass has been added to the tools transforming them into vases."

+ The Bouroullec brothers Kvadrat Clouds at design*sponge, "a series of fabric tiles called 'clouds', similar to their previous fabric tile collection, made for Kvadrat that connect via a system of rubber bands."

+ Marco Dessi's Prater chair at designboom, looks like a stackable steel chair but it's made of wood.

+ Peter Freund's Sideboard Nightwriter at DesignSpotter, a sideboard with a luminescent surface you can write on that gradually fades.

+ Stephanie Jasny's CORDULA lamp at DesignSpotter, a combination spotlight and cable reel, "Ten meters of cable allow distant positioning from the power socket. With its additional pivot-joint CORDULA can be rotated by 90 degrees and together with an energy-saving fluorescent lamp it creates an flexible illumination."

+ Artoyz DotDrops at Josh Spear, luggage with snap-on microdots that you add to create a recognizable design to your bag.

+ Constance Guisset's Duplex at Fubiz, "an acquarium/cage favouring an improbable encounter between a bird and a fish. The aquarium is thermoformed so as to create a space where the bird can fly at the same visual level as the fish."

+ BabaAkcja's Sophia lamp "2in1 - Lamp and Storage" at DesignEast, "a new way of storing earrings. Perforated lampshade allows us to hang our earrings on it. The lamp becomes one of a kind, individual object."

+ Sabine Mühlbauer's convertible Child Bed & Sofa for Morgen at pan-dan.

+ Bathroom Design Team's I-crylic bathtub at matandme, made with "translucent acrylic sheet and integrated led's at the surface."

+ Breville's new blenders at Appliancist, "Made with durable stainless and die cast alloys, this blender has fewer parts for easy and safe cleaning."

+ Bathroom Innovation Award 2008 winners at Apartment Therapy, "all designed to use a lot less water...perfect for small space living in arid locales."

+ IKEA's 2009 PS collection, 70 products inspired by "Sweden's traditions and nature, and the colors and materials were chosen accordingly, with lots of wood and wool in white, black and red." at Hemfeber, Also via emmas designblogg.
