I like the sturdiness of this Portuguese saddle on a stool by Spanish designer Bernard Coll.
Leblon Delienne is a French producer of Mainly comic strip oriented figurines. Inspired by André Franquin, a famous Belgian comic strip cartoonist, artists of Leblon Delienne have designed this Franquin chair.
At Studio Dirk Van der Kooij techniques are developed to make a better world.
The chair is created with a completely new, high-tech process. An in-house developed robot melts plastic, into a pipe like shape and then carefully writes out the shape of this chair, somewhat like 3d printing.
Each line is hollow to minimize resources, and the source is 100% recycled synthetics.
The minimalistic shape and the extremely low resolution make the looks of the chair closely related to how it’s made.
It is not only recycled or minimizing resources, it’s not only a newly developed 3d printing process, it is not only a catchy design piece…
The true beauty lies in the combination of it all…
Quoted from Dirk van der Kooij
The rag chair is part of an exhibition of 100 plus chairs, curated by Workshop of Wonders to celebrate 100 years of Dutch Chair Design in the machineroom of SS Rotterdam. I’ve made some photo’s there and will share them with you. It is designed by Tejo Remy in 1991, but from their site it appears the design is also by Rene Veenhuizen.
The grey chair in the background is the V.I.P. chair, designed by Marcel Wanders in 2000.
Flow by Okajian
I found this luxury walnut wood Flow lounger – although Okajian claims it is Not a Lounger 😉 – at a combination stand of Medcreative.org in Hall 1 of M&O. It has beautiful mother of pearl inlays and stainless steel ornaments and it comes with a wireless charger for your phone or tablet.
Okanjian is a firm established in Lebanon by people who wandered in who originally were from Armenia in 1908. Currently the firm is run by the fourth generation.
