Gesa Hansen + Tivoli

IMG_8821-mitVase

Gesa Hansen, an incredibly talented German furniture designer, teamed up with Tivoli to create this beautiful audio-furniture piece! It fits the Tivoli stereo elements perfectly and smartly hides the ‘cord salad(one of my favorite German terms, freely translated, Kabelsalat) in the back.

I admit, I’d love to put this in my living room. Well done, Gesa.

I spent the last 60 minutes looking at outdoor furniture. I am ready for summer. And this Pebble Coffee Table made me look.

Infinite Home Tool

Infinite Home Tool

The Infinite Home Tool is quite a poetic object, serving a double function of a suitcase and a furniture piece. Living out of a suitcase gets an entirely new meaning with this piece, as the suitcase is more like a instant shelving unit, whereever you put it down. Charming. (And yes, probably not all that practical)

(Thank you Jolien)

Love this open book bin by Land of Nod.

My desk by Miguel Mestre is a dream come true. The desk’s surface is made of a giant stack of large paper sheets. Sketch, draw and then start new by simply taking off the top sheet.

Check out these galleries of book cases, custom beds and tables. Obviously I am not fond of many of the ornate designs, but, it shows that anything is possible.

Clopen

It doesn’t happen often that I gasp when I see something. But the Clopen shelf managed to get exactly that reaction. The floating shelf was designed by Japanese Torafu Architects and uses magnetic keys to open a secret 23 mm thick drawer. A perfect place to hide your valuables.

Hut Pendant Light

The modern Hut Pendant Light is designed and made in Australia from powder-coated steel and acrylic and slots together without screws. A light that makes you look up!
