The Nurus-D team has created a very abstract looking desk which still manages to look pretty uncluttered and functional. The Hexa Desk from Nurus, a Turkish office furniture maker has a conventional surface and the conventionality ends right here.The frame is made of carbon fiber, allowing the structure to be lightweight and resistant outside the common purpose of such finesse. No price yet, but you know that will be released in September 2009.
This desk has a very interesting and unusual shape and you could use it at your office, but at home, too. It looks more appropriate to be used by many people, maybe for a conference room or a meeting rather than a normal individual office we are so used to. Any way, both the desk shape and the shape of its support – as it does not have normal desk legs to lean its weight on remind you of the interior of a bee hive, of the perfect geometry inside them. The intricate but perfectly geometric figure made by the metallic support is amazing.
Ribbon Staircase is a beautiful staircase created by the studio of Czech architecture HSH architects. It is fully designed from a 10mm sheet of steel folded and lacquered. Simple and minimalist, it will undoubtedly agree with your house.
As all of us have figured it out by now, the name of the design project comes from its resemblance with a ribbon we use for our clothes more often than for interior design. But in this case we are not talking about a fabric ribbon, but about a ribbon made of stainless steel that has been cut and then shaped so as to look like a giant ribbon that can also be used as a very special staircase. It is thick enough to support the body weight of whoever dares to step on it and climb upstairs and also offers a pretty unusual, but nice design.But somehow, I don’t know why, I would use it more like a decorative object than a functional staircase.
This eco-friendly fireplace boasts a captivating design with a suspended burner that is supported with the structure small steel cable. The fireplace is available in different shapes (rectangular, square, cylindrical, pyramidal, hexagonal …) to suit your tastes. There is something a lot more decorative than the old fireplace that used to be built-in the wall and that was used for heating the rooms.
This fireplace works on bio ethanol and that is why it only heats the air around with a few degrees tops. The Babylon fireplace was designed by the French designer Stephane Perruchon for Studio Kosmo Design. The Babylon bio ethanol fireplace can be used both indoors and outdoors and it come in various shapes. It can be round, like you see in the picture here , rectangular or square or even oval. You will feel great sipping a cup of hot chocolate next to it in cold winter evenings, chatting and feeling fine next to your family.
It’s black, it’s white, it`s an ingenious light-sensitive OLED clock that automatically shifts colors so that it is readable by day or night.Designed by Vadim Kibardin,the Black & White clock is a perfect gadget, forget the boring digital wall clocks. Depending on whether it is light or dark out, the clock will shift colors so it can be viewed at any time of day.
The time is displayed in translucent white and each part of the clock is independent and also has an independent lighting system. Each of the figures you are supposed to apply on the wall can be fixed by itself and you can do that on any kind of surface. Their energy supply is a lithium-ion accumulator for each and also the material the clock is made of is polycarbonate, with the mention that OLED comes from organic LED (light emitting diode).
Every part of the clock is touch sensitive, so this is the way you can control it and change the settings. A light sensor tells the time of the day and depending on this the clock displays the time in white at night and in block during the day. Quite a gadget, right?
There are many light design ideas, but the Trifid lamp design by Lucis seems out of the ground like a tropical plant from another planet. Its organic form white, just a note highlighted in color in shades ball, gives it a strong personality. It`s possible to use this lamp as lighting or suspension, fixed by the ceiling. I once saw a science-fiction movie where alien creatures came looking for humans and there were some long arms with a ball-like eye at the end, searching all over the place for people.
No offense, but this lamp looks just like those alien arms with eyes. However, they are pretty unusual, so original at the same time and they can be of great effect in a modern living room. No matter where you decide to place it – on the floor or on the ceiling, it will add a bit of originality to your house and you can also turn its head so as to have the light in the spot where you want it.
If you are a business man and you work more at the office the SimpleSleeper sofa is what you need for hours of relaxation. Grabbing a couple hours sleep on the sofa and getting back to work can be handy, or simply crashing after you upload your project and are done. It’s like a day bed, but instead of pillows it has a legitimate back rest like a sofa. But when you feel like stretching out on it the back pivots up and out of the way giving back the full width of the seat cushion.
Ok, if you are really tired any flat space would look perfect for you to sleep , but this sofa is really comfortable both if you sit on it during a meeting or sleep on it. It has the armrests on both sides of the sofa, but you can easily turn them into head- rest or pillow and , if you watch the photo carefully, you will notice two very convenient drawers beneath it. They are used for storing the necessary items in case you need to sleep over: the sheet and a blanket, maybe a small pillow. The sofa has legs, so you can pick the best spot in the room and just move it there and also the softness and cover of the cushion make it perfect for a good night sleep.
