The Delicious Storage collection by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur takes its inspiration from Manhattan hot-dog stands. The series of small storage cupboards are each covered in the wafer-patterned stainless steel.
I love the idea of taking inspiration from traditional building materials, but reworking their use. Recognisable by its form, the use of solid wood gives ‘Poutrel’ an entirely different look. At the same time the wooden Poutrel’s function becomes ambiguous.
Zurich based Schindlersalmeron created the minimal hocker stool using three sheets of aluminum folded
together. The three pieces of aluminum are identical in shape and use spatial folding to stabilize each other.
Using aluminum allows the stools to stay light, only 1.6 kg, while the splayed design makes them stackable.
Designer Mathieu Lehanneur transforms the geodesic domes of buckminster fuller into reconfigurable leather
ottomans. The design for 'bucky's nightmare' takes the principles of the geodesic dome known for its
structural innovation and research and turns it into a blob structure.
