The Spun Table Lamp by Jonah Takagi

The Spun Table Lamp is a nice table lamp designed by Jonah Takagi, a young Japanese-American designer.The lamp consists of a tripod of steel painted in three bright colors, yellow, orange or green, and a round hat in satin aluminum. Its shape is complemented by a nice little ball hanging from the cable for the ignition and colored in shades contrasted with the base.

It’s a very simple piece and yet it looks odd.  The combination of shapes and materials is a little strange…and the colors too. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Odd designs are often more appreciated than the usual ones. They have something special, something unique that you can’t define and yet that looks attractive.

This table lamp has that je ne sais quoi that we keep hearing about and that is so hard to define. I think in this case the strange thing is the shape. It looks like  little stool and not like a lamp. Be careful not to confound it with an actual stool and to sit on it because it’s not going to be a pretty image. Anyway, it’s a strange design, but that’s not everything there is to say about it.

Let’s not forget that it is a lamp so the functional aspect is also important. As a table lamp I would say it satisfies the demands. The design is still questionable.

Radici Outdoor Furniture by De Castelli

The collection includes a gazebo, a table, some chairs, a coffee table, a bench, a barstool and candleholder. Specially designed to catch eyes with the climbing plants the collection is also very comfortable.

It has a modern but still traditional design. I have to say it looks a little pretentious for my tastes. But considering the fact it was designed for outdoor use, I would say it would look nice in a garden, just not my garden. What I really likes are the climbing flowers. It’s a very beautiful detail that distinguishes this collection.Radici Outdoor Furniture by De Castelli

The set includes a lot of pieces, enough to furnish all your garden or terrace. The gazebo is also very beautiful and interesting. I really like the fact that it also includes a coffee table. That an important piece. It’s such a beautiful feeling to be able to enjoy a nice cup of coffee outdoors. It’s so different than the feeling you get when you drink your coffee in the morning in the kitchen or in the crowded space of the living room. I say it’s worthed to invest in a collection like this.

House in Menorca by Dom Arquitectura

Space is one of the fundamental elements that many people seek for in a nice and comfortable house, interiorly and exteriorly and the well balance of both. That is what many will think of an ideal house for summer time, the House in Menorca is one of such houses, with a good balance between its interior and exterior. The house was built upon the inspiration of the “tanca” of Menorca; the divisions with the wall of stone.

House in Menorca by Dom Arquitectura1

The house had combined all of multiple elements in form of a harmony, which each of the elements has its own feeling and identify yet harmoniously balanced being with each other as whole. It has the elements of softness that is well contrasted with hardness, use of glasses and sand, and woods and stones. They are indeed a well balanced designed.

In fact, the back and front of the house is also well connected with a hall way of large opening for both sides, the back and front forming a well transition between the outside and the inside of the house. Furthermore, with the well designed sliding slats made of wood, it acts as the sunscreens for the house. It is indeed a masterpiece of a Spanish architect, Pablo Serrrano Elorduy from Dom Arquitectura.

Awesome Bottle House

Plastic bottles are everywhere and they make it much easier for us to get the products we want in lighter bottle than glass. It is important to the environment that we recycle so that we can keep the plastic bottles out of our land fields. So it has become a common product used by everyone. Fortunately plastic is one of the materials that can be recycled after you use it. Here is an incredible house made entirely from glass and plastic bottles.

You have to recycle them anyway, so why not use them for your own benefit? And what better way to include them in your life than building a house using plastic bottles. It might be a little difficult to gather all the bottles you are going to need because you are going to need a lot of bottles. I’m not sure how resistant the structure will be, considering the bottles are made from plastic, which is not the best material that you can think of when it comes to building a house.

But it seems like more a more people are starting to use them in all sorts of different ways. So if it’s possible to build a house using only bottles, I say you should at least give it a chance. It’s cheap and it’s original. The result will be a very unusual one. But it has to be unusual, in order to stand out.

Zahra Chair by Odue

More and more futuristic chairs that I see every day, the Zahra chair by Odue is one elegant chair that with its glossy finish and unrivaled design mesmerizes its spectators. Designed for those who are searching for modern furniture, the contemporary plastic chair comes with three units of chairs that make a complete package.

Zahra Chair by Odue1

It’s an interesting idea, that of combining three units that can be used as sitting places. But when you think about it, the round shape would mean that all those who are using this chair must sit back to back. That’s not a very nice thing to do when you’re trying to have a conversion with someone. And I really can’t imagine a situation when three people could sit on the same chair and still wouldn’t need to see each other in the eyes. And to use it just for a single person would a huge waste of space.

contemporary-chairs

I like new ideas, I really do, Especially modern new designs. But this one is not one of them. It’s just not functional at all. It looks good, it’s beautiful, glossy, sexy and somewhat elegant, but it misses the entire purpose of the chair. And it doesn’t look comfortable either.
