• Farrah Sit x Chiyome
    NYC Design Week 2015 saw the Rhode Island School of Design alumni Farrah Sit and Anna Lynett Moss from Chiyome, both New York-based product designers, collaborate on a beautifully light and elegant furniture collection. Rooted in an analysis of planar relationships and with a nod to design elements borrowed from fashion, the collection is a study of […]

Slide is a collection that includes two shelving units, a counter unit and a pair of small side tables that express a “slide” of position by focusing on the technology […]
  • CTline
    Milan-based architect Victor Vasilev partnered with the Italian manufacturer Boffi, to create an innovative shelving solution in blind shape. Vasilev was inspired by the profiles of buildings, touching the sky, in big cities. The breakdown of the volumes of the buildings has created a series of staggered floors which may contain seveal objects, creating a […]
  • Link Shelf
    The German design label Studio Hausen has rethought a modern classic of design; the hanging shelf. The link shelf is stripped down to the essentials; a number of massive ash wood shelve boards and a set of black steel mounting brackets. I like the contrast of the natural wood and dark steel and the open […]

  • Mamba and Mamba Light
    Mamba, by Bulgarian designer Victor Vasilev for MDF Italia is more than a shelf. It’s a perfect combination of shape, function and material, a unique mix of a shelf, a console and a desk with a LED light source which creates a new kind of furnishing. Mamba is a new concept of furniture comprised of Cristaplant, […]
  • Dike
    Berlin based Björn Meier created a minimalist, light, modular shelf-system named Dike. Dike is composed of several components, each made of a coated top and bottom shelf, two side elements of acrylic glass. The rear and blind are made of aluminum. The system invites you to make your own composition. The open transparent shelves encourage us to […]
  • Clopen
    Clopen is a simple little floating shelf with the neat storage compartment. Creative minds at Torafu Architects envisioned it looking like a solid wooden piece. The illusion breaks when the face panel slides open, revealing a hidden storage area. Designers explain: This shelf panel is constructed from elaborate aluminum parts, and at 34mm thick, it looks as […]

    Looking for a flexible and light structured shelving system? Do not look further. I would like to share Meccanica, a great minimalist shelving system by Demode, engineered by Valcucine, with you. The base unit frames of Meccanica are made of iron with a electrophoresis coating, connected together by using mechanical joints. The framework can be […]
  • Funiture
    As a fan of New York-based practice Snarkitecture ever since their collaboration with fashion designer Richard Chai, I have been looking forward to their new installation in Chicago’s Volume Gallery, a series of everyday objects ‘confused’ in their original function, typical context and familiar materials, producing a collection of Fun. A lamp whose globe melts away […]

  • KINK
    Osko+Deichmann, the product design studio founded by Blasius Osko and Oliver Deichmann, created a minimalist family of tubular steel furniture named “KINK”. While normally tubing used in furniture is bent the Berlin design duo rather functionally folded, dented and kinked the tubes in their furniture pieces. The traces that come with the steel process are […]

Van Nistelrooy, 1979 – The Netherlands, founded his studio after his graduation in 2007. Revolver was developed as part of the retail design commission for […]
