TURNING CEILINGS FROM MUNDANE TO INSANE

May 27, 2018

Reinventing what drop-ceilings should be like, MNML’s acoustic tile design for TURF comes with rare earth magnets that simply snap to the drop-ceiling grid framework without fasteners or hardware of any kind, but it’s really the design of these tiles we’re more intrigued by. Exploring tesselations and patterns that range from geometric to organic, the acoustic tiles for TURF bring a sense of dynamism that one usually doesn’t see much in ceilings. Completely redefining the space, the TURF’s ceiling tiles absolutely reinvent your interior space without altering the space or changing anything that’s at or below eye-level (furniture, etc), turning a regular cuboidal space into something truly awe-inspiring.

Besides, it really does encourage you to look upwards and daydream for a bit, doesn’t it?!

Designers: Scott Wilson, Tim Zarki, Arvid Roach & Dave Seal of MNML for TURF.

THIS IS A CUSHION

October 27, 2017

The qoobo cushion is an interactive, tail-wagging pillow that could replace your pet

Yukai engineering has successfully met its kickstarter goal for the design of qoobo, a robotic cushion with a tail intended to provide a sense of comfort to users. When caressed, the plushy cushion waves gently. When rubbed, it swings playfully. The cushion also wags to say hello to its owners. The interactive pillow is designed to provide comforting communication that warms your heart the way animals do. The robotic pillow makes users feel as though they are interacting with live animals and provides them with a sense of comfort, or ‘tail therapy’. Through the kickstarter campaign,  yukai engineering applied its expertise and experience in robotic engineering to help all people – including those with pet allergies or apartment dwellers who can’t own pets. the engineers hope to develop the technology further, by continuing their study on the animal’s tail movements to offer even more realistic experiences.

 

‘we selected different materials for various parts of the robot to enhance the movements and the tail’s appearance. we also made it durable to allow for use in various environments’, explains the design team. with over 400 backers, qoobo reached its kickstarter goal of over 5 million yen or approximately 44,000 US dollars. a variety of styles and colors can be chosen, making the pillow customizable for future ‘qoobo’ owners. the first batch of pillows is scheduled to be delivered by august 2018.

 

Pong is Being Rereleased

March 20, 2017

PONG-Full-Size-Coffee-Table-new
Pretty much everyone has a coffee table in their house and pretty much everyone loves Pong, so a group of Uruguayan engineers have taken advantage of that overlap. They’ve brought Pong into the physical world, removing it from its previous pixelated build and building a physical, playable version into a coffee table. Like the original Atari game, the Pong paddles are moved by two large wheels on either side of the table, while the ball’s movement is enabled by magnets under the surface, and an LED panel at the top of the board keeps score. When the game is over and it’s time for more traditional entertainment, two covers flip over the wheels and the LED panel turns into a clock. The table can also stream music using Bluetooth and power up to four USB chargers. It comes in four color schemes, though we’re partial to the classic, with the old Pong logo and grayscale lined design.

London’s Jack Bell Gallery brought two paintings by Ivorian artist Aboudia. Born and based in Abidjan, his work is brutal, layered, and heavily influenced by the clashes that followed Côte d’Ivoire’s 2010 presidential election. According to gallerist Jack Bell, “his paintings reference street art and vodou and look at social inequalities in downtown Abidjan.” Aboudia’s works are currently exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London, through September 2015.

I N T E R I O R S: CARRY ON A STOOL YOU CAN CARRY AROUND WITH YOU

February 25, 2015

Carry-On-Stool-Offecct-Mattias-Stenberg-1
You know that feeling when people come over and you realize you don’t have enough seats for everybody? Carry On, by Mattias Stenberg for OFFECCT, offers up another place to put that extra bum. It’s a portable stool that you can lug around your home or office for those times you need extra seating. Or you’re going to a friend’s house and they ask you if you have any extra chairs – bring the Carry On.

Carry-On-Stool-Offecct-Mattias-Stenberg-2-600x800 Carry-On-Stool-Offecct-Mattias-Stenberg-3-600x450 Carry-On-Stool-Offecct-Mattias-Stenberg-4-600x450 Carry-On-Stool-Offecct-Mattias-Stenberg-5-600x800 Carry-On-Stool-Offecct-Mattias-Stenberg-6-600x800
The rounded, fabric-covered form has a rotating wooden handle that lets you easily transport it from space to space. Slip the handle to the side when it’s time to sit. You can even stack several of these in a corner so they’re on hand when you need that extra seating. We think they are pretty cool.

Geometry Stool is composed of a half split log of Japanese cypress and a copper round rod. The copper round rod acts as a joint for connecting each half split log, therefore the tangent point of two different materials where logically meet in section has generated geometrical configuration.
