This week’s picks:
+ Tomas Kral‘s PLUG! collection at DesignEast, “is about connections between glass (hard material) and cork (soft and porous material). Glass part of project was made by free hand blowing on the other side cork was transformed to its shape using CNC machine.”
+ Ionna Vautrin’s Bovisa series of glass and fence vases at swissmiss, “Like micro architectures these vases are inspired by industrial landscapes composed by gas tanks.” Project in collaboration with Guillaume Delvigne.
+ Kilian Schindler‘s wireframe garden furniture, “The range includes a wire chair, storage rack and lighting system, which Schindler says are inspired by objects found on German allotments.”
+ Sebastian Brajkovic‘s Lathe table, “Made of aluminium, the Lathe Table is quite literally created by being turned on a real lathe. In this incarnation however, the chisel carves aluminum directly instead of the traditional wood.”
+ Pepe Heykoop‘s A Restless Chairacter chair winner of the [d3] contest for young designers organised by IMM Cologne, “hilst appearing like an archetypal wooden chair, the construction is in fact aluminium which is hidden under its flexible skin. The wobbliness is achieved through flexible joints made of rubber which also makes it more comfortable, taking away the stiffness of sitting in the traditional chair.” Perfect for those people who just can’t seem to sit still. Via design.nl.
+ StÃ©phanie Beckers‘ Textile Lightable light objects at DesignSpotter.com, “completely made of textile with an integrated light source. The pattern is based on Gingko leaves and the sharp lines of high-tech buildings.”
+ Kiki van Eijk‘s Hexagon Lace rug at Ponoko Blog, a “new carpet made with traditional techniques. Completely handmade! The hexagons all together form a very geometrical lace pattern which gives a very strong and graphic effect. The colours are strong and vivid which strengthens the high-low contrast.”
+ Govino wine glasses at Cool Hunting, “Made of shatterproof thermoplastic polymer resin, Govino wine glasses are designed just like crystal stemless ware. And like crystal, there is no leaching that might alter the body and aroma of the wine. Better still, a handy thumb notch provides the perfect level for a pour.”
