Origami Table by Anthony Dickens

The Origami tables are made from identical flat pressed steel legs that slot together to assemble the tripod base. On each leg there are two slots, each positioned on a different 3 point plane in space. This makes the joints tighten when a load is placed on the table and will never fall apart. NO screws are required; no bolts, pegs or fixings of any sort.

Designer: Anthony Dickens
Available in White, Black and Chrome

Hee Outdoor Seating

I like these so much.

“Inspiration can come from anywhere, and in the case of Hee Welling, it was the interior of a refrigerator. More specifically, the shelves inside the refrigerator caught the eye of this industrial designer…
The durable powder coat finish makes the Hee Lounge suitable for indoor and outdoor use by protecting the solid steel underneath. The coating also provides a surprisingly soft seat, and gives a slight “give” to the surface.”

Available in White, Yellow, or Green.

Made of solid steel with a durable powder coat finish.
All are stackable.

‘big bend’ desk by jeff miller for baleri italia

This piece is strong enough to stand on it’s own in a large room (it would have to, considering the price).

“a sculptural and flowing desk design from jeff miller that pushes multi-ply wood curvature technology to new limits.

two identical pieces of curved multi-ply wood form the legs and base, supporting a matching multi-ply top that almost appears to float above the base and legs.”

Elan Four-drawer Chest

I like how this is simple, no-nonsense and looks a little like packing crates. It’s got a sturdy price tag because it’s made with all the traditional joinery techniques that make it last forever: tongue and groove, mortise and tenon, and dovetailing.

“Each piece of wood is hand-rubbed with oil to bring out the grain’s character. Four-drawer dresser has an open and airy look with horizontal slats exposing vertical supports and hidden angle-cut self-pulls.”

If you’ve seen this before, sorry for the repeat. If you haven’t, may I call attention to the simple structural design and nice color choices?
