Bulb Chair by Gaëtan Van de Wyer

Now that’s a really interesting piece of furniture. At first you don’t even know what it is, then after analyzing it a little bit you realize it’s actually a chair, a very unique one indeed.

If you are looking for this type of furniture, perhaps you should turn your attention towards rattan furniture. Such furniture is created from cane, which is one of the toughest materials in the world. The Bulb Chair was designed by a Belgian designer, Gaëtan Van de Wyer. The bulb chair features an LED lamp to illuminate your space. As you can see from the pictures the chair is made from sustainable materials, including rattan and water hyacinth. The Bulb Chair measures 88cm w x 107cm d x 178cm h.

Creating a chair that actually has a lamp incorporated in the design is a very clever idea. It makes it the perfect place to enjoy reading a book or just sit there thinking of your problems, meditate or any other activity you might think of. I’m sure that for the user it’s a very comfortable and pleasant piece of furniture, but for the other ones…I don’t know, it looks kind of creepy. I wouldn’t want to come across that image when walking around the house.

The Munich Lounge Chair by Sauerbruch Hutton

Designed by Sauerbruch Hutton, an architectural company with the headquarters in Berlin, the Munich Lounge Chair will be produced by German manufacturer ClassiCon, which will be presenting the chair at the upcoming 2010 IMM Cologne show. This type of chair designs are good for our posture, although I’m not sure about the shape. The Munich Lounge Chair will be available in frame of oak or walnut, stained and clear varnished.

As you can see the base is made of wood and it has a natural color. The actual chair is black and it has an unusual shape. I’m not sure what’s the purpose of this design but I assume it was built for comfort, because if they actually chose this shape in order to make it look beautiful, then it’s a total fiasco. This is not a pretty chair. I don’t find it elegant or stylish, not even ok. I think it’s a waste of space to have something like this in your home. It just looks odd, and not even in a good way.

However, there are plenty of people who are actually looking for pieces like this. They actually like to have odd things in their home. Every person has its own style and personality, so there’s really no good or bad when it comes to this kind of situations. If you like it, then this is all that matters.

Retro-tech Platinum Table

The Retro-tech Platinum table is a coffee table with a 22-inch monitor and a computer inside. The idea is that you hook the table up to your TV as a media center. Anyway the coffee table is a little expensive, it’s available for $4,850. But you can build this exact product for yourself for closer to $1,000.

The idea is very clever. I’m sure a lot of people are wishing they could do more than one thing at a time. This coffee table allows you to do that. You can enjoy your coffee and in the same time you can use the built-in computer. It’s an interesting concept but I wouldn’t want to have this piece of furniture in my home.

In the morning I just like to enjoy my coffee and to relax without being preoccupied with anything else. There’s plenty of time to use the computer later on in the day, and the same goes for the TV. But this could be a very useful piece of furniture for those who are very busy and there’s just not enough time to be able to dedicate that time just for coffee. It’s not the best case scenario but it happens so you just to make the best of it.{found on dvice and bornrich}

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.

They also increase the sculptural feature of the house. The front is made of vertically positioned black tainted wooden materials. If you blend whole thing of the house like shape and material, it not only gives a modern look to the house, but also kept in its afforested atmosphere.
