Lamps Made from Sawmill Waste and Tree Branches Embedded with Resin and LEDs

August 3, 2012

Christopher Jobson

For his Brecce collection, Italian designer Marco Stefanelli devised an ingenious way of removing fragments from sawmill scraps, tree branches, and cement fragments, and replacing them with perfectly sculpted resin embedded with LEDs. The resulting lamps retain the organic nature of their original form yet cast a beautifully subdued light. You can see much more on Stefanelli’s blog. (via the awesomer)

A Table Made of Secret Compartments

January 13, 2012

Christopher Jobson

The Kai Table designed by Naoki Hirakoso and Takmitsu Kitahara contains a few surprises, being constructed almost entirely of secret compartments. From sliding drawers and hinged cupboards to a number of shifting panels, the entire piece is built like an elaborate wooden puzzle. (via architizer)

Geometric Sculptures by Zachary Abel

December 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Using binder clips, playing cards, paperclips and many other household objects, mathematician Zachary Abel pieces together intricate geometric structures. One of his most recent pieces, the Impenetraball (top) is made from 132 binder clips and Abel suspects its sturdy enough to support his own weight (though he has yet to confirm). Dizzying mathematical how-tos and patterns available via his website. (via make)

Happy Cloud Coasters

November 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A few minutes ago New Zealand-based Barefoot Dynasty launched their latest product: Happy Cloud Coasters. The coasters are made from Portuguese cork, are dirt and water resistant, and come packaged in a fancy recycled paper box. Just a hunch, but I think they’re going to sell a gazillion of these.

I’m loving these assorted projects by Paris-based designer Suzy Lelièvre who distorts and manipulates common objects into unexpected forms. If you like her work you might also enjoy Michael Beitz. (via fasels suppe)
