If you’re a slave to your desk like me, you know what it’s like to daydream about getting a little exercise during the week and will appreciate this design. Introducing Fitness@Work- the perfect chair for keeping your blood flowing throughout the workday! For those big guns a central mainspring/handle combo is built into the core of the chair for a great arm resistance workout. Need to work on those 6 pack abs? Lean the seat-back to the floor, tuck your feet behind the stabilizers and…you get the idea. Neeeeed this!

Designer: Benjamin Cselley

Inspired by the intrigue of optical art, this pair of bespoke Lexham bedside tables plays with both the user’s understanding and vision, creating the illusion that the flat tiered sections are warping. The legs’ use of acute angles creates a forced perspective that further piques the viewer’s interest. Fabricated from Corian, the thermochromic liquid sheets are laser cut to size and shape. The inlay surface is also temperature sensitive, going through the color spectrum from deep red to dark blue as it responds to hot and cold.

Stripped of the unnecessary, Sofist is a wonderfully moderate approach to the sofa that proves that sometimes less really is more. The skeletal body flexes under super comfy cushions to mold to the user’s position while the underlying space provides plenty of room for storage or a cozy rest area for pets. On one side the wire framework supports an anchored flat surface for resting objects & on the other a unique way of filing away your magazines or books (particularly those that teach excellence & virtue).

This Log Chop Bench is a one-off piece defined by one very unconventional process (to say the least). Designers David Long & Antoine Morris avoided concrete blueprints & lent their ax, log, & minimal sketches to a professional Lumberjill (you heard me) who carved out seat spaces with surgical precision. The rough hollows were then clad in fine, hand-sewn upholstery by a motorcycle saddle maker. A little unorthodox, but pretty damn sexy.

The bench was recently auctioned at the Stellar Living 2011 Contemporary Art & Design Auction for Mercer Union in Toronto, Ontario.

I have a strange pet peeve- I hate when people display things on top of their coffee tables. Doesn’t matter if its books, photo albums, or knickknacks… it drives me crazy. Problem solved! Ok, so maybe it’s not really a prob to anyone else, but it’s exactly why I appreciate Mitch Steinmetz’s Rememberance coffee table. Instead of acting as a medium for the user and their entertainment, it becomes the entertainment…Taking the form of the common album, the coffee table flips open to reveal tchotchkes, memorabilia, photos etc., encouraging the creation of new memories while cataloging old ones.

Even though it’s back has been severed and three of it’s legs have been slashed, this design is still standing pretty. It’s called the Cut Chair, and it’s is the latest victim of designer Peter Bristol’s wonderfully twisted imagination. A reinforced beam anchored to a plate beneath the rug stabilizes the cantilevered seat while three cleverly placed dismembered legs give the illusion that the chair has just been magically sliced apart. A story-inspiring and striking design.

Did you ever see the scene in Beetlejuice with those walking, crawling, creepy chairs? They were undeniably awesome. Well these pieces won’t follow you around trying to catch you, but they are the next best thing. Though inanimate and lifeless, the Animorphia collection by Toot Chen expresses the exact opposite by exploring the stretches of the imagination and drawing from the posture motions and natural interactions of animals. Awww, look at that cute family of wild side tables.

It’s easy to dismiss a simple table when there’s a superfluous design element, but I like the architectural form of this Side Table. The randomly placed rails also constitute the legs. There’s a fluidity in the design, emphasized by the softly curved wood surfaces. What appears to by unnecessarily complex makes total sense.

Designers: Stefan Jäger & David Laudert

Part of the “Imprints: Designing for Memories” exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore, “VERY BIG” is a bookshelf with accompany Chinese chess pieces. The joints are fitted with strong magnets to hold the chess pieces and offers a unique way to constantly change the visual display of books and whatever else you usually put on a bookshelf. Clever.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Sweetch18, a table chair from the folks over at Cerekapery innovation lab. They’ve made this strange piece of furniture so that you can both sit in and use as a chair. Not at the same time though! You’d get squished. Instead this is for sitting around in most of the time, then say you’ve got a guest or something coming over and you need more table space, BAM, you’ve got it.

This particular table chair has just won a design award in Paris and the designers will be further presenting this bit of loveliness this winter at “l’observeur du design.” Then, again it will be shown at Inno Design Tech Show in Hong Kong early december (Dec 2 – Dec 4). Very flippy.
