Because traditional furniture and flat floors are too boring

les_angles_seating_1

The Les Angles Structural Seating brings the dynamic surfaces of the outdoors, indoors. Designed in a way that doesn’t look like furniture, but behaves like it, the structural seating add a different flavor to rooms by giving people the impression that the floor underneath is alive, and is breaking through the monotony of flatness to turn into a terrain-like surface you can sit on.

The Les Angles are made from 100% wool fabric and may look edgy, but are actually quite comfortable to sit on. Comprising different elements that take on different functions (like a backrest, a cushion, the Les Angles can be arranged on the floor or even on a wall, allowing a room to look practically alive and dynamic… because traditional furniture is much too boring!

fibonacci_sideboard_01

Our furniture is what turns a house into a home, it allows us to express our individuality and style through another medium, but most importantly of all, it can give us somewhere to hide our mess! The Fibonacci sideboard does all this in such a beautiful and composed manner.

As the name would suggest, this unique sideboard is based on the famous Fibonacci sequence; this is something that we especially see a lot if in the worlds of Art, Photography and Graphic Design, but in the case of this item of furniture, it has been used in the composition of the compartments. This has led to a particularly interesting design which is sure to instantly steal anyone’s attention and rapidly become the center of the conversation!

The all-wood construction is available in a whole host of bright colors, so there is sure to be one that compliments any individual’s personality!

Seating That Creates A Surreal Level Of Escapism

This beautiful, sculpture-like structure is a ‘Kodama Zomes’, and it offers a whole lot more than just being a dramatic piece of eye candy! It is a revolutionary item of furniture that provides the user with an unapparelled level of comfort and escapism, inside the house or out.

Designed with immense attention to detail and crafted using the finest of materials, the Kodama Zomes feels just as good as it looks! The gentle, unrestricted swaying motion that is achieved by the single overhead point soothes the vestibular system and makes the Zomes a place of tranquillity and exceptional comfort. Kodama also offers a range of covers for the Zomes, from the undeniably practical Mosquito Net to the shade-creating Sun Shade… all to enhance the surreal experience.

You would be forgiven for mistaking this item of furniture for a piece of art due to its defined and striking design, making Zomes just as alluring to look at, as it is to reside in.

Tranquillity Embodied in A Table

lake_furniture_layout

For the majority of us, our living rooms are a place of calmness, they are a place for relaxing and recovering after a long day. So, with this in mind, surely the items of furniture that reside within it should enhance the level of peacefulness.

Lake has been designed to do just that! As the name would suggest, it has been inspired by the tranquillity that comes with the body of water; their beautiful silence, crystal clear depth and composed nature have been embodied in the form of an undeniably unique side table.

Three plexiglass vessels, each identical in size, form the transparent legs, onto which the circular top rests. Molded into this are three ‘drops’, all of which can be filled with water, flowers, fruit or other small items, to add an element of interest to the otherwise minimal design. Much like a calm forest lake on a peaceful summer’s morning, this table opens up space for imagination to be set free.

DIY Decor That Can Shift Homes and Cities With You

aalo_diy_furniture_system_cover

Sejun Park’s Aalo does something most furniture brands do not. It focuses not just on settling, but on the relocating aspect too. Designed for a generation that often is on the move, whether to pursue their career or their calling, the Aalo range of furniture travels with you and lets you call multiple places home. Aalo’s unique assembly system also makes it hackable, reusable, and customizable.

“As a city dweller, I was moving between places quite often, which meant my space arrangements were frequently changing. Each time I struggled to find furniture items that would fit my new space perfectly, and there were no good options, “says Park, a former Lexus Engineer, “Customized furniture was simply out of my budget, and trying to create a DIY solution required time, money, and special tools. I began experimenting with various materials, manufacturing processes, and assembly mechanisms to come up with an easier and more versatile furniture solution. And that’s how Aalo got started.”

Unlike the biggest player in easy-to-assemble DIY furniture, IKEA, Park’s Aalo was made in a way that when assembled, is a functional piece of furniture, but isn’t permanently assembled. Aalo’s range of furniture is made from powder-coated aluminum pipe extrusions and joineries like L-shaped, T-shaped, and Y-shaped connectors. Assembling them together involves a DIY aspect that is swift and relatively intuitive. The ability to undo assemblies by simply unscrewing them means you can quickly disassemble parts too, and the lack of permanent fixtures like glue, nails, or screws means the furniture can be easily disassembled and transported to a new location where they’re assembled again.

The aesthetic of the Aalo series is perhaps a result of its unique USP… to be easy in terms of manufacturing, shipping, assembling, and disassembling, and to be a functional, robust product when in use. Its minimal styling makes it perfect for those subtly decorated, minimalist, functional apartments and lifestyles of today’s millennial nomads. The current series includes bookshelves, benches, garment racks, desks, all of which use the same parts, therefore minimizing waste during production, while also giving you the ability to concoct your own creations using the parts you own.

“Ultimately we want to provide furniture with an extended lifetime value, one more sustainable than other furniture brands that have somewhat became synonymous with the term ‘disposable furniture’. If you’re moving and have no use for an Aalo piece any longer, you can disassemble it, then reuse the same pieces to build something entirely different.”
