Home storage doesn’t always have to be crafted from wood, metal or your usual findings – but it can instead be a fun and colorful experience while recycling other items. Repurposed plastic crates from various places are all fitted within the metal frame by Dutch designer Mark van der Gronden.
This adorable toy storage by Serbian designer Ana Babic was inspired by playgrounds and their cheerful atmosphere. The goal was to transcend this feeling into interiors, using an object that invites you to play.

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.”

Built in 2012, the home is transformable to accommodate humans that might like to repurpose some pieces as furniture and enjoy the natural buzzing surrounding the pavilion.
