I’m already a huge fan of all things from Typo, so when the email popped up in my inbox sharing the exciting new Hall collection coming soon, I may have jumped out of my chair in excitement (true story). Needless to say, when I saw this mornings’ email NOW OPEN THE HALL, I stopped in […]
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 […]
It’s not that far to walk but works the appetite just enough. But before I got to the cake I walked into OneDeko which specialised in Italian interior design which I noticed had several pieces that I will be showcasing in the coming weeks, Moroso was one. I could have gone into several places but […]
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 […]
At Quirk Design we often look at different products for researching design, branding and market position and one of the most varied product groups I think is the hifi market. From the cheap mp3 player up to, almost, cost no object components that are made to order. Hi-Fi itself is such a huge category starting […]
Every now and then you come across some furniture that is just a little different, such as the Eden Furniture we posted last week here, but Andrea Felice of AF Design use wood and metals to make handcrafted furniture with a twist. For example a normal side cupboard, simple 2 doors, OK lets jazz it […]
Yesterday I showed you the Light-room project from Studio Geenen that used rapid prototyping techniques to make light weight furniture but today I am going to show you a range of products that could only really be made using these new machines. Materialise have been making parts since 1990 and in 2004 set up MGX […]
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 […]
So Julia Lohmann is one of the tutors on the Design Products, which you can read about here, course at the RCA and I would probably class her work as more installation art over consumer product, but never the less I still really like the use of different materials and boy are they different. The lamp shade above […]
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 […]
Hye-Yeon Park is a student on the Design Products course at the RCA and has done two new takes on the humble clock. The one shown above is the In-Between Clock and it tells the time by morphing the digits between the current one and the next, its always in a state of transition, just […]
Recently I have been writing about design from people that either work at the Royal College of Art or attend the Design Products course because of the yearbook I recently got, read about it here. Well today I am going to look at some of the work of Michael Marriot, and the first piece is […]
