The Only Staircase You’ll Need: Comes With Shelves, a Cupboard, and a Desk

Haasnot Stairs Shelves Cupboard

 

Cities are getting more overcrowded by the minute. That means increased rent, smaller spaces, and more cramped apartments all throughout. It’s probably with this in mind that inspired Dutch design studio Mieke Meijer to come up with this four-in-one piece of furniture, as it combines a staircase, storage shelves, a cupboard, and even a desk.

The work was commissioned by designer Just Haasnoot and it’s definitely a huge space-saver, I’ll give it that. While it’s not the safest staircase in the world (no handrails and it’s pretty narrow), it makes the most out of limited space that plain old staircases typically occupy.

You can find out more info about it HERE.

Megaton Floor Lamp Looks Like The Real Deal

megaton-lamp

We’re not 100% sure the Korean War-era bomb casing used in the making of the above lamp was from an actual 1950′s stockpile, but that’s the claim being made. We have no reason to doubt them, especially considering the asking price: $1,680. Stockpile Designs seems to be in the business of repurposing old military equipment into furniture of all sorts, and the Megaton Lamp pictured above is but one of their creations. If it doesn’t strike your fancy, know they have quite a few more military-industrial type items for purchase.

ceiling-furniture-for-cats-by-goldatze-gold-paw-13

Some people are really serious about their cats. Stefan Hofmann understands this, and designs modular “furniture” specifically for your furry friends. Through his company, Goldtatze, he makes and installs these in what appears to be endless configurations. Words really don’t quite make his creations justice, so why don’t you hit the jump and feast on a whole bunch of pictures.

Also, we don’t have any info on price but we’re going to go ahead and assume we can’t afford any of this.

Get Rid Of Unwanted Cables With Stage Charging Shelf

the-stage

A Holland-based company known as Spell has recently launched their latest product, The Stage. This interesting new furniture design claims to help you with all the unwanted cables in sight in a very fashionable manner. Though the purpose of these shelfs are to get rid of the cables, they can also be served as a small workplace. With this innovative design that brings enough space underneath to hide a power strip, the “Stage” can easily be used as a fully functional charging and meeting station.

The Stage top is made from Solid American walnut while the base from epoxy coated steel and durable foam-rubber. It can easily be mounted on most common walls in your home and has enough space to hold up a five-plug international powerstrip. The company also gives an option to produce the “Stage” in solid oak, oak white and in optional leather inlay. They are always willing to go one step ahead to meet their customer needs.

Rocking Bench Lets You Rock to Your Heart’s Content

Rocking Bench

You’re too old for a rocking horse but you’re too young for a rocking chair. So have a seat on the Rocking Bench and rock out to your heart’s content. This unique piece of furniture was designed by Lanzavecchia and Wai with the goal of transforming something meant for kids (in this case, the rocking horse) into a refined piece of furniture for grown-ups.

The saddle provides added stability, although it isn’t the most comfortable thing in the world because of the lack of rests. The cool thing about their design is that they’ve also made a version that’s meant for two people.Continue Reading

This Giant Cat Couch is For Both Cats and Humans

Giant Cat Couch

If you love cats and have ample space in your apartment, then you’ll love this giant cat couch. It was created back in 2010 by Unfold, a design studio based in Antwerp, Belgium, as part of a five-piece feline-centric art installation. It’s actually described as a sculpture and it’s called Felix Domesticus, but doesn’t it look more like a couch to you? Or a gigantic plush toy?

It’s awesome for so many reasons, I don’t know where to start. For one, it looks mighty cushy and comfortable. Because of its size and how it’s built, I’m sure up to a dozen people can lounge on it comfortably. The legs add a modular feel in the sense that you can use them as a pillow or as a hand rest of sorts.

This Chest of Drawers is Literally a Chest of Drawers

Literal Chest of Drawers

You don’t call it a “bunch of drawers” or a “stack of drawers.” You call it a “chest of drawers” and that’s exactly what you get with this particular piece of furniture. This unique bureau designed by George McCallum features a well-built dude with an 8-pack that actually serves as your main storage space. The drawers decrease in size from top to bottom as it follows the body shape of a guy who probably hits the gym every day.

It’s definitely bulkier than your average chest of drawers in more ways than one. The topmost drawer comes with nipples (aka knobs), while the succeeding ones don’t have any because it would just be strange if they did. The rounded edges allow you to open the second to fourth tier drawers with ease, though.

Mamoris is a Chair and a Helmet, When You Need One

Mamoris Chair

The Mamoris looks like your typical chair, except for its dome-like design at the bottom of the seat. Upon closer inspection, it might look like one of those bedside commodes, albeit a particularly futuristic-looking one. But it’s not a portable toilet, though. Rather, it doubles as a helmet in case you find yourself in danger from being injured from falling objects, like, say, during an earthquake.

It was designed by Japanese industrial designer Kota Nezu of Znug Design in collaboration with design firm Poplife. It makes sense, since hundreds of earthquakes rock Japan every year. The Mamoris was unveiled recently at Tokyo Designers Week, which wrapped up yesterday.

Table Made From Magnetic Levitating Cubes

floating-table Ever on the lookout for unique and innovative furniture, we’re intrigued by Rock Paper Robot’s Float Table. It’s made from a matrix of wooden cubes with strong magnets embedded within. The magnetic forces repel the cubes from one another, but a series of steel guide wires keep everything in place. This gives the table a solid appearance while undisturbed, and a wobbly look when touched. We’re not sure how stable a table it is, and placing a wine glass down on it might be a dicey proposition. But it sure is a talking piece that anyone with money will be more than happy to have in his living quarters. We say ‘people with money’ because it’s one of those pieces with no advertised price, placing it squarely in the “if you have to ask” camp.

Edit: A reader informs us that the table is $10,000 and is available here.
