The “Atlas” table is one of their amazing oak/smoked oak tables with a brass base that makes a huge room statement. The inspiration behind it are the Atlas Mountains, that border the Sahara desert.

Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture

Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 1 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 2 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 3 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 4 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 5 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 6 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 7 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 8 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 9 Bae Sehwa’s Beautifully Bent Furniture 10

Bae Sehwa’s steamed bentwood furniture ripples in airy and sinewy ways to curve around the human body. The precision in each piece is not accidental. It’s acutely planned. Sehwa digitally renders and manipulates geometric forms then returns to the actual physical form, steaming and bending the wood into a mold under a tight watch. The result is functional, organically smooth, and flawless.

According to R Gallery, “Bae Sehwa’s work is derived from the Korean concept of baesanimsu, meaning the back of the mountain and front of the water and he draws heavily from the profound connection to nature in traditional Korean theories of divination. The steam bent wooden frame of this lounge offers a narrative that includes both the tranquil, meditative qualities of flowing water and the strong, comforting silhouette of a mountain.”

Un-instrusive Pop Up Street Furniture of the Netherlands

Un-Intrusive-Pop-Up-Street-Furniture-of-The-Netherlands-1 Un-Intrusive-Pop-Up-Street-Furniture-of-The-Netherlands-2

Street art and furniture in public places tends to be the last thing on the minds of public planners. Many artists have been branching out into more creative and innovative ways of putting inviting and interesting designs for the general public. Carmela Bogman and Rogier Martin of The Netherlands have come up with an interactive design for the people.

By utilizing a hydraulic system, users can determine which pieces to bring up and determine their own seated or standing heights to set the modular blocks at. There are three retractable pieces that come up to function as a lounge area, eating spot or meeting place – or just lower them all down to be flush with the cement to keep the flow of traffic moving.

Vintage Bus Becomes Rad Home Office

Vintage Bus Becomes Rad Home Office 4

Vintage Bus Becomes Rad Home Office 5

For all of the indignities that public transportation seems to cause, there are still plenty of people out there who feel a certain affection toward the vehicles that move us around every day. This incredible home office must belong to one of those people, because it’s made from the front end of a real Ikarus bus.

The old Ikarus is in a home in Hungary, which is fitting since Ikarus is a Hungarian company. When the project began the bus was old, rusted and quite neglected. A few coats of paint, some loving restorations – and the removal of all but one small corner – and the bus was ready to become a distinctive home office.
