Modern & Multi-functional

GEOLOGY TEACHER CHAIR BY PIERRE LESCOP

Last month, I attended a conference for Architects and Designers where one of the speakers suggested a compelling method of successful workspace design. The idea being to consider the user as a co-creator of the environment and maximize the capacity for adaptation.

The Geology Teacher Chair, named for the interlocking pieces that suggest the shifting of Earth’s tectonic plates, delivers on that very approach (and it’s just plain cool).

The Softer Side of Science

SCIENCE PROJECT PILLOWS BY HEATHER LINS

Sporting diagrams clipped from the pages of old Biology and Earth Sciences textbooks, these Science Project Pillows make a fun decorative accent. More than quirky and colorful, the materials are eco-friendly, too.

Shapely Service

TOTEM VASE BY BOYM PARTNERS

What at first glance looks to be a simple vase, the Totem actually divides to reveal four unique serving bowls. A great example of modern and space saving home goods design.

Dramatic Lighting

WORKERMAN BLOK PENDANT LIGHT

Love the roughly hewn elegance of this lamp that is made to order. Just as the company claims, their work is deliciously clean, modern and simple. See more at Workerman site.

One Sexy Rocker

SAVANNAH ROCKER III BY JOLYON YATES

Fluid, graceful and sculpted from Birch laminate, this rocking chair brings to mind a slower, more laid back era. Makes me want to sit a spell, preferably on a wrap-around porch with a frosty beverage in hand. What a nice thought to start the weekend…

See more at the ODEChair Gallery.

Get Outta My Head, Universe!

JUST WHEN I WAS THINKING THAT CAT BOXES ARE TOO MESSY…

While hanging with friends this weekend, we got acquainted with a super sweet cat. The feline vibe is very different (we’ve got two dogs), and I started missing my own cats who passed six years ago.

So what do I find in my morning news feeds? Why the Modcat Litter Box! Great style, many colors, reusable liner, and a shape that limits the temptation for the dogs to snack on kitty treats. Hmmm…

Radiant Art

Modern wall sculpture or radiator? Both, actually. Available from Caleido in a wide variety of finishes and shapes, these pieces add decorative accent and functional warmth. There’s even a design that doubles as a towel warmer for the bathroom. Mmmm.
