Living Cube Combines Several Rooms Into One

Living Cube

Designers are constantly coming up with ways to make the most out of a limited amount of space. The more people there are on this planet, the less space there is for each person. And if you can’t afford more square meters for your living quarters, then it’s time to get creative with the space that you’ve got.

The latest in these designs is the Living Cube by designer Till Könneker. It incorporates a little bit of everything into what looks like several bookshelves combined into one.Continue Reading

Slater Lounge is an All-in-One Privacy Pod While You Wait for Your Flight

Slater Airport

Airports are usually hubs of activity in every direction you turn. From harried travelers pushing over-filled trolleys to screaming kids at the check-in line, airports aren’t exactly places where you can get some peace and quiet while you’re waiting for your flight.

Designer Uriel Serrano aims to change that with the Slater airport lounge. It’s still a concept for now, but it’s basically an all-in-one privacy pod that gives passengers their own little private space while they wait.

Part Beanbag, Part Hammock, The Beanock Is All Awesome

beanbag_hammock_1

Get a sweet sweet hammock? Or a sweet sweet beanbag? The Old El Paso girl would respond unequivocally: why not both? Indeed the Beanock allows you to do just that. It’s a slightly flattened beanbag that you hang from its four corners, and that promises to give you many an evening spent in comfort and relatively relaxing bliss. It’s made from cotton, so you should store it inside when you’re not using it, lest your comfort and bliss be shared by mold and other undesirables. And like many such items, the price tends to match its uniqueness: $315(USD) and up.

‘I Used To Be a Washing Machine’: Artist Turns Broken Appliances Into Chairs

Washing Machine Chair

Most people just throw out appliances that conked out rather than shell out some cash for repairs because the former seems like the more economical choice compared to the latter. But instead of sending your old appliances to the junk yard, why don’t you let your creative juices take over and turn it into something else that you can still use?

That’s what industrial art designer Antonina did with her project called “I used to be a washing machine.”

Wooden Transformer: Boxed Turns Into a Wide Variety of Wooden Furniture

Boxed

It’s amazing what you can do with a few shaped and polished pieces of wood. At first glance, Boxed looks like a plain and ordinary wooden suitcase that carries a bunch of random blocks of wood. But if you know how to put them all back together and piece the shapes together, then you can assemble a wide variety of furniture that you can actually use–like stools, a desk, a coffee table, and even a lamp.

Fancy Quartz Inspired Armchair Comes With A Fancy Price Tag

The-13999-Quartz-Armchair

In the quest to deck your living space with stand out furniture, you can take any number of directions. CTRL ZAK and Davide Barzaghi have created the above Quartz Armchair to give you yet one more, quite expensive, option. Made up of a complex beech wood lattice, and polygonal cushions that embed into the open spaces of that framework, the chair ends up looking like an elaborate crystal, maybe even like quartz. The complexity of the manufacturing process ensures that no two chairs are identical, which will make it just a little more unique when you do decide to drop the $14,000 the designers are asking for.

1920′s Lightbulb Testing Rig Turned Into A Bar

Screen Shot 2013-07-08 at 8.14.56 PM

In the 1920′s, lightbulbs were tested in contraptions like the one you see above. At least they were in a factory in Germany, where a similar device was discovered recently, and after which the above bar was fashioned. Made out of iron with an antique looking finish that replicated the patina on the original tester rig, the 265 lbs behemoth will look classy in just about any living space. Given that it’ll set you back $1,995 to own it, we suspect that if you can afford it, you already live in decent looking digs and will be appreciative of how it complements your other undoubtedly expensive furnishings.

Stunning Carbon Fiber Bathtub/Hammock Is The Only Way We’ll Get Clean, From Now On

carbon-fiber-bathtub-1

The sad thing about opulence is that once you’ve experienced it, it’s hard to go back. And while we haven’t had the pleasure to actually soak in the above bathtub, the Vessel, by British company Splinterworks, the expression “ignorance is bliss” sure seems to apply in this case; we were better off not even knowing such a beauty even existed. Made entirely out of carbon fiber with a foam core, the 2.7m (8.8ft.) tub looks like a hammock, hangs from the wall and drains into a specially made opening underneath it. “Pictured here in black, it also available in red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver.” Price is mentioned nowhere on the website, but we suspect that sticker shock on this would be a couple orders of magnitude higher than your typical luxury bathroom furnishing.
