Flip Chair for Kids by Marco Hemmerling
I see some design similarities with another chair. You too?
Originally found at lilsnob:
Like Knoll says on its CYM pinboard: “Brace yourself” for the evergreens in modern hues.
And a real 50ies style Pink Cadillac Sofa.
Just by way of experiment I’m embedding one of our pink chair pins here. Originally posted in 2011. On Pinterest it has 51 likes and 233 repins thusfar…
Always nice to source the stuff and I have found it: Yab Design, a company with apparently a couple of fellow Dutchmen as backers who produce this in Taiwan.
By the style of the site Emporium of Art is their Australian distributor.
I knew I’d been staring at Yab’s site before. Now I know. It was in relation to a fruit chair: Green Apple Pod Chair.
That brings me on another thought: One of our avid readers admitted somewhere being inspired by us to create a Pinterest Fruit Chair board. And so the circle is round.
Next part of the experiment is to see if we can pin this post again;-). Yes we managed!
Ritz Sofa by Bertjan Pot:
When creating a product that has been made as often as a sofa, one could get the idea to do things completely different. The Director of high-quality furniture manufacturer Gelderland was up for a change. Most sofas are made of voluminous foam blocks to break the fall when sitting down but not necessary for comfort when sitting. As the price of oil (of which foam is made) keeps on rising, it is wise to think about ways to reduce the use of foam. So, The Ritz was seriously downsized. Despite her skinny looks, The Ritz really is comfortable in every way. Stretched elastic bands covered with a thin layer of foam assure a soft seat. Upholstering was made simple by using a zipper all around. High legs make it easy to sit down and get up. And off course like every good sofa The Ritz is long enough to lie down on and be lazy with the help of a firm and again, comfortable pillow.
The Z-ball by James Van Vossel is an inflatable ergonomic ball, but its 3 handles are positioned in such a way to allow the user to sit further forward than on most balls. This supports the loin area more and results in more comfortable seating.
