boing sofa by tokujin yoshioka

Tokujin Yoshioka apprenticed to both Shiro Kuramata and Issey Miyake before he started designing his own line of furniture for Driade.

“Designed by tokujin yoskioka, 2005 for driade. Yoshioka is an award-winning designer whose thoughts about design are that the creator should show something surprising and joyful. his work may look understated but there is a deeper meaning of something that is both poetic and ready-to-sell. The Boing sofa is simple yet interesting. the three place sofa’s structure is made in chromed steel , the shell and foam with metal inserts and the fixed cover is made of leather in ivory, red, or blue.”

Bloc Media

This is the perfect example of utilizing the beauty of wood by keeping the design as simple as possible.

“Made from chunky sections of solid European walnut, carefully combined to reveal the variations of colour and grain within the wood, the striking Bloc range adds rich, textural interest to an interior. It comprises a set of six tall drawers, four low drawers and a media unit, with two flip-down compartments and a central drawer with cable management.”

Oslo and Wheel Platform Beds

While I know not everyone would need or want wheels on their bed (or a futon mattress, for that matter), these two platform beds are super simple, and not out of the pricing ballpark.

Tropics Dining Table with Trestles

The legs on this table look identical to the Multi Table I posted a while ago, but this picture (or maybe the high gloss top) puts it into perspective. Plus, there’s the option of ‘Golden Trestles’ (which, if you say aloud, sounds like some type of candybar or fantasy land).

“Dine or work in style, times infinity with our Tropics Table. An easy, modern solution that’s ultimately versatile, allowing you to customize any dining nook, work area or home office over and over. Sleek and rectangular, the Tropics Table comes in 3 options.”

Rochelle Sofa by Gus Design

With definite roots in mid-century design, this sofa has some rather nice detailing with the exposed wood and button-tufting.

‘Solid wood legs elevate this Gus Modern couch off the ground, effecting a unique “floating” look. The wood detailing extends up the back of the sofa for a striking visual accent. Button-tufted fabric upholstery achieves a pleasing loft for hours of relaxation, while a tight back eliminates the need to continually arrange and tidy loose cushions.’

Tosca Chairs by Magis

This all around indoor/outdoor/stackable chair would tough it out in harsher (i.e. high traffic) areas, but keep in mind there’s a minimum order of 4.

“Tosca by Magis is a new stacking chair with arms finished in glossy or polyamide. Tosca is suitable for outdoor and indoor use and can be used for many contract projects. Tosca can stacks nine units high and is ideal for small spaces. Designed by Richard Sapper, 2007″

New Antiques by Marcel Wanders for Cappellini

I’m enjoying the New Antiques collection by Marcel Wanders. This chair in particular strikes my fancy. It’s a Klismos style chair (an ancient Greek form) merged with the turned wood technique, where wood is thrown on the lathe for the “knobby” appearance.

“A stunning takeoff on period furniture, the new antique wood-turned chairs and tables are available in matte black or white lacquer. the chair seats are upholstered with polyurethane foam and covered with a choice of smooth G908 or stamped leather of the same color choice as the frame. the seat is also available made of woven polyester belts with the cappellini logo.”

Sydney Lounge Chair

While this is categorized as a lounge chair, it looks like more of a ‘chaise lounge’ to me. But, hey, they’re selling it for $250, so they can call it whatever they want.

Outdoor safe.

“Sleek and elegant, the Sydney Chair features a synthetic weave with an aluminum frame.”
