Get Back to Comfort

Ludovica and Roberto Palomba have teamed up with Poltrona Frau once again for the Get Back Sofa. This beautiful Beatles-inspired piece is stylish yet sedate. Sporting classical lines, expert tailoring, and the highest quality of materials, Get Back relishes in encouraging you to “Get Back to Where You Once Belonged,” which I assume is the cozy confines of a restful living room. A suspended frame and cast aluminum feet convey lightness, while up top the impression is all comfort...

The Weave stool creates volume out of hollow spaces!

It almost looks like the Weave Stool has strips wrapped around an invisible air-balloon! Designers Hyeongkwon Lee, Sanghee Yoo & Seong Bin Kim took inspiration from the motif of Korean traditional handicraft called ‘Jukbuin’, a type of bolster/cushion made by using a unique structure of overlapping layers in three directions.The Weave replaces those bamboo pieces with black metal strips, giving the stool much more strength, durability, and even flexibility. Mounted on a metal tripod frame, the W...

The SSD Chair proves that more designers should take to crowdfunding

If IKEA pioneered the flat-pack furniture industry, the SSD Chair brought it to crowdfunding. You see, a lot of designs get abandoned as concepts because there’s no easy way to manufacture and sell them without having distribution channels, marketing teams, and retail partners. IKEA is what it is today only because it’s a phenomenal force of retail and has warehouses and brick-and-mortar stores in a number of countries… most independent designers do not. Creating a chair is easy. Selling it is...

A plywood stool with some bounce!

Exploiting plywood’s ability to be flexible but hold its shape rather well, designers from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen created the Mågen stool, a stool that takes inspiration from Sori Yanagi’s Butterfly Stool, but adds some bounce to it! Comprised of six individual molded plywood pieces, the Mågen stool allows you to sit on it, and the two upper plywood layers flex under your weight, giving you the feeling of sitting on a cushion. The flexible layers not only make the Må...

Layer Design and Airbus bring the ‘class’ back to economy class

The bane of air-travel, aside from noisy children and overpriced peanuts of course, is the fact that you’re stuck in an uncomfortable chair with practically no cushioning and hardly any leg-room. The economy class of an airplane is designed to be just that… economical. It sacrifices comfort, the need of personal space, and probably even its share of functionality just to make sure it can host as many passengers on the plane. We justify this mild discomfort because “it’s only for a few hours, rig...

Work Softly and Sit on a Comfy Sofa

Billiani White Chair

The Billiani White Chair is not named White for its color—though there is a fetching version in cream, the epitome of Scandinavian style—but rather for its clean and welcoming aesthetic. Created by Finnish designer Harri Koskinen, White is sculpted in striking ash wood. Its clean and uncluttered lines border on the severe but are tempered nicely by the wider proportions of its legs, seat, and back, as well as its upholstered options. Manufacturer Billiani says, “If White were a model it would ...

The Superglue chair revisits how chairs should be perceived

One seat, two armrests, one backrest, four legs. These elements come together to make a chair, and whether you perceive them together or individually, there’s a fairly large chance you’ll know you’re looking at a chair/seating-device.That isn’t quite the case with the Superglue chair by Dmitry Kozinenko. Comprised of 3 sheet metal parts joined together by flat rivets, you’d never guess that they would come together to form a chair. Even when they do come together, it’s difficult to isolate which...

Parametrically designed ‘Generico Chair’ takes on your weight with half the volume

In this case, the chair retains its strength and also comes with a flexible backrest, but with a volume that’s drastically cut down, and that uses less ...

The result is Resolute.Developed using CAD software, the Resolute chair is adapted for aesthetics yet sturdy enough to support a person weighing more than 250 lbs.

Joseph Walsh, who is a self-taught designer from County Cork, Ireland, focuses on one-of-a-kind and limited-edition pieces. To call his work furniture is reductive at best. Although Walsh’s pieces offer functionality and attention to craft, they are more akin to works of art. With spellbinding sinuous lines and captivating areas of empty space, Dommus Suite transce...
