As there was so much to this company I had to split the post, you can find the other half here, and this part will concentrate on storage and chairs. Lets start with this chest of drawers, Aphrodite, or is it a stack of drawers? Either way the style is a nice departure from the […]
So we had a stop in Hamburg a while ago and got a brief glimpse at the city, from the big lake to the little cobbled side streets. Its a very grandiose city indeed with it’s big imposing stone town hall to all the little streets to wander around. Well we had just come out […]
So do you remember the computer games Frogger and PacMan well this table from Atomare really reminds me of the two games, from the bright green to the big open mouth, maybe its the table version of Kermit the Frog!! The Ogo is covered in rubber so would have an interesting feel compared to what […]
So yesterday I posted about one of the two trends I have spotted cropping up in design, natural, and today its almost the opposite with fractural design. Remember those 80′s graphics of fractural number algorithms continuously changing on the screen. This theme reminds me of that and is almost the opposite of the natural design […]
Following all the looking around at designs at the moment it seems that there are two very different trends happening the first is natural, which is what this post is about, and the second is edgy or fractural which I will show you tomorrow. Natural design comes from the efficient use of material, look at […]
I have looked at many fireplaces over the years in peoples homes, magazines, shows and hotels and the lovely flickering flame is always romantic and warming to my heart most seem to either be modern or old fashioned, but thankfully after6studio have designed a fireplace with some flare (and plenty of flame) which also have […]

Searching for new design can be like waiting for a bus at times, nothing for ages and then several all at once. Well that is true of the posts I did last week about the use of rapid prototype techniques being used to make furniture with Studio Geenen and MGX and now these dice that are used […]
Recently I have been doing a lot of development work for a client and this involves ordering prototypes which currently is via rapid prototypes be it SLS or SLA. This is a fascinating industry at the moment as the products and materials are moving at such a fast pace. We even ordered some prototype jewellery […]
As you might have noticed I am showcasing some of the designs and people from the RCA Yearbook I recently brought, see here. Well one that struck me as being a good design because of its language to use in several products was Nicola Zocca Shrink collection. The chair above uses the wood frame to soften […]
This is one of those designs that makes me think about things from the past, those Spirograph drawing things and the string pictures that seemed to be all the rage in the 70′s, but the way its been done on this chair makes me see that its not such a bad idea after all, not that […]
Harry Thaler granduated from the Royal College of Art, Design Product in June last year taking The Conran Award with him for his pressed aluminum chair.
