VONDOM Vertex table by Karim Rashid

Geometrical furniture becomes more and more famous nowadays. It is the coolest thing to decorate a particular place like bar of house with strange and uniform shapes. The VONDOM Vertex by Karim Rashid is a set of table and chairs featuring triangular planes that meet dynamically to create comfortable forms suitable for dining or meeting rooms. The pieces are manufactured by rotational molding, the main characteristic of this technique is that the material is 100% recyclable and it can explore never-ending possibilities in terms of shapes.

It’s an unusual furniture set but that’s to be expected one you hear the name Karim Rashid.  He is known for his original pieces and designs. And this one makes no exception. It’s a very interesting idea that sits at the base on this collection. Plus the recycling is one more reason why you should choose this furniture set. Although it doesn’t look at all like a recyclable material. But you might be surprised what talented designers can come up with.

The geometric lines create a very interesting shape. The pieces share a very modern look that reminds me a little of the origami technique. It’s definitely an original idea that combines the functionality of the table and chairs with the stylish look of decorative pieces.

They share the structure of the iPod and they turn it into a very functional and fun table. It’s a very versatile table as well. Because of it’s unusual design, there’s not a rule that says it has to be used as a certain type of table or only for certain activities. So you can use it as a very fun coffee table or even as a small dining table. The shape allows it to incorporate a very useful storage shelf where you can store some magazines, books, cigarette packs, a bag or anything else you might want to.

It’s definitely an unusual table and it will make a very fun piece of furniture in your living room. It’s obviously modern and this can be either good or bag. It’s good because now it’s something new. But there’s also a big disadvantage. The problem is that technology advances very fast and  there are permanently new concepts and designs that replace the old ones. So in just a few years there’s a real risk that you’ll end up having an outdated iPod table which represents a model that has disappeared long ago from the stores. Think about that before making a decision.

For example, the Book Pills by Je Sung Park looks so modern and are made of flexible inner materials and a little bit more flexible material, plus the outer shell of plastic. The best part of this project is that you can move them all around the outsides or put them right in the middle.

It’s surprising how simple these pieces can be. The well defined design looks like it’s trying to make a statement. The geometric shapes kind of join them all together, creating a very fresh image. The colors used are the very clean tone of white and the natural wood color, in most of the cases. There’s also a brightly colored side table that adds some fun to the collection.

The name of this collection is very suggestive for the pieces included. The contrast refers on one hand at the materials used that are put together in a beautiful way. On the other hand it refers to the colors: there’s the pure white mixed with the beautiful and natural wood color, and then there’s also that colorful side table that creates a contrast compared to all the other pieces.

This type of furniture pieces doesn’t look good in any kind of environment. You have to be careful when including them in your home design. It’s not enough just to like them, they also have to look good in your home.  So think about this aspect before purchasing them. You might end up with a bunch of beautiful and really interesting furniture pieces but with no place to store them because they just don’t go well with the rest of the furniture or with the overall interior design that you have created in your home.

Ink Calendar by Oscar Diaz

Here is an interesting idea for a calendar by Oscar Diaz. The ink is absorbed slowly, and the numbers in the calendar are “printed” daily. One a day, they are filled with ink until the end of the month. Each month has another color, the colors range from dark blue in December to, three shades of green in spring or orange and red in the summer.

It’s an original idea that I have never seen before. And it involves something that everyone is using every day. Calendars are one of the oldest concepts that people came up with. At first we were able to tell time by the position of the sun and then someone came up with the idea of creating a calendar, a structure that helps us keep track of time. Everyone uses them regardless of the type.

The most common type of calendar is the one that usually hangs on the wall where everybody can see it. And this one is more or less based on the same principles, although it’s a lot more attractive. Still, as beautiful and interesting as it may be, it still takes a lot of space that not everybody has. But you can’t have it all.
