Well, unusual chairs might not make you click, but I’m sure you like the pretty neon lights, don’t you? Who doesn’t? Well this unusual chair is the Disco Chair crafted by Kiwi & Pom. This new chair is a illuminated piece of furniture art built out of 200 linear metres of Electroluminescent wire. If you like rainbows, and would like to sit on one, this chair offers you that delight. It can also be the source of light for your next party. Another cool feature of the chair, is that it can be set to flash on and off so you don’t have to use any additional light systems.
When you look at this amazingly organic walls you might start believing the one that built it is really passionate about walls, or is really OCD. But the fact is these crazy shaped walls are in fact the result of robots, and a highly advanced computer construction program, and they are able to curve the wall not only on two axis, but actually in a 3d fashion.
You may say the robot as a creation, is the exact aesthetic opposite of it’s work. The walls as you can see them are installed in cities like Venic and New York. The technology can be transported bare-bones shack-on-wheels structure from which the single arm arcs out to life and position the composing pieces into organic soft and incredible curves.
Talking about Arts & Crafts with used car tires, huh? How about Sculptures made out of used rubber?
These are indeed made out of used tires, so if you indeed love the earth, and art of course, you’ll love this idea. This method for reusing car tires can be the best recycling method for the used rubber that otherwise could end up in a landfill. As you can imagine, these sculptures are made of used tires in combination with stainless steel and resins.
This fantastic forms are artistically used into creating fantastic forms, and are the work of the Korean artist Yong Ho Ji.
Efrain E. Velez,is an architect and designer from Austin, Texas and this is the O-Lithas collection of cast concrete furniture he has created.
I found this on the Contemporist website in furniture. I love concrete as a material for furniture, actually I’ve wanted to start a business with this, but that remained at the stage of concept and sketches. Anyway, this collection is awesome, and if you love modernism, than this has the perfect lines for you. I know, the house in the background is brilliant, and yes, I will give you details about it after the pictures, aight?
