A Chair on Wheels Made of Books

A Chair on Wheels Made of Books recycling home furniture books

When I think of furniture made from books the first word that comes to mind is uncomfortable, however this hefty chair entitled Bench of Thoughts (Banco del Pensamiento) made of recycled books by Alvaro Tamarit actually looks pretty darn comfy. The heft of the chair also matches the price, however this is certainly more of an art piece than something to eat your bagel and coffee in the morning. Check it out over on Saatchi Online.

I’m really enjoying these ceramic street map coasters by industrial designer Anders Hansen. Each coaster is formed from a different area of Oslo including Majorstuen, Parkveien, Sentrum, Kvadraturen, Sentrum Øst and Grünerløkka. Available in his shop for about $15-$22 apiece. (via behance)

Matchbox Gardens

From Another Studio, makers of the pop-up postcard gardens comes MatchCarden, little teeny tiny gardens that sprout from a container the size of a traditional matchbox. Personally I won’t be satisfied until they release a postagestampcarden. (via core77)

Chris Dorosz creates these three dimensional furniture installations using blobs of paint suspended from filament, and uses a simliar technique to create human figures. I can’t imagine how difficult it is to affix viscous, acrylic paint to monofilament like this.

A really wonderful set of four ornithology letterpress coasters, each with a fun visual twist by London-based Ryan Todd. Lots more beautifully designed prints and shirts in his shop. (via notcot)

Need/Want Glass

Need/Want Glass words sustainability interactive home conservation

The Need/Want Glass from Alesina Design encourages you to think about wasting water every time you take a drink. By holding your finger over a hole in the glass, you consciously permit yourself to have more water than you might “need”. This is all subjective I’m sure, and if you could somehow apply the concept to watering your lawn or taking a bath it might be even more effective. Still, got me thinking. Each glass is hand finished, numbered, and signed. Available here. (via holycool)

Break soap is a concept by Dave Hakkens that involves a large block of soap with removable “self-serve” wedges that can be snapped off for individual use without having to touching a bar that’s been handled by somebody else. More hygienic see? If only Jack Nicholson’s character in As Good as It Gets had access to this brilliant invention. (via design crush)
