Seating

Webble Active Footrest

Quick, what’s your posture like right now? If it’s as bad as mine, maybe you’ll also be curious as to how this little footrest might help you improve your office ergonomics. I only wish it was a little less office-y looking. Also, how much do you want to bet a co-worker will attempt to use it as a skateboard? That could be entertaining… until they rip a hole in it, or break their wrist/nose/leg.

A movable footrest that rides on four smooth-gliding casters and provides workers with a sweeping 360-degree range of motion. Durable, breathable mesh surface supports feet with or without shoes… It’s specially designed, functional form and grippy mesh surface enable workers to instantaneously place their feet exactly at the angle that fits them best without any adjustment.

Offcut Stool by Tom Dixon

Flat packed and put together by you with no extra screws or glue, this stool sounds like it’s from Ikea… until you see the price. But, hey, if you’re as desensitized as me, $200 for a stool sounds like a bargain, especially after adding in the designer’s name.

“designed by tom dixon, the offcut stool’s elementary form is the result of several innovations; the circular round seat makes clever use of the curved offcuts, its construction requires no additional screws or glue, and the stool is flat packed for ease of delivery.”

dimensions: 17.7″dia x 17.3″h.

Claude Modular Collection from Jonathan Adler

Modular systems can offer much needed versatility to your home, and this system does so with a distinct mid century flair. A half drawer unit plus half seat (not shown) would be ultra handy in a entryway, and the look of the two-2 drawer units on a double base (shown at top) could look very nice as a bedroom dresser or console. The only drawback is it can get a bit pricey when you start adding up the costs.

White or Ebony.

Single base (26″ wide x 17″ deep x 9″ high): $195.00
Double base (59″ wide x 17″ deep x 9″ high): $395.00
2 Drawer Unit (32.5″ wide x 17″ deep x 15.5″ high): $800.00

Oscar Sofa

This sofa looks oddly modern despite the traditional silhouette. Maybe it’s the fabric done in a Kvadrat Wool, or maybe it’s just that more traditional frames are back in style nowadays.

Elegantly shaped European hardwood frame with jute webbing and hessian straps. The Upholstery is Kvadrat Molly Wool and cushions are feather-filled. Walnut stained beech compose the feet. Despite all this, it is a truly comfortable seat.

Lazy Bastard Armchair by Bertjan Pot for Montis

What a Lazy Bastard. If you bought this chair, you could say that all the time, and if someone got mad and started to punch you, you could say, “Wha?! I was talking about the armchair you’re sitting in!! WTF?!”…Wouldn’t that be fun? Basically a bean bag on legs, this armchair looks super comfortable because it is. May I recommend the black color instead of the suspiciously-seventies-inspired pea green color?

Available by special order only.

Studio Ubico, “stump” series

These 100% recycled stool/tables are double the fun (sort of like the gum) with their affordable price tags and quirky made-from-woodscraps design.

Stump series started in the industrial garbage cans in the area near our factory. Small pieces of hardwood are thrown from carpentries in the area in large quantities. Through the series development it became clear that we can reduce costs and become socially involved through passing some of the production to a factory which employs disabled people.

Monopod Chair by Jasper Morrison

On Jasper Morrison’s site, this chair is listed as made from “precision milled blocks of recycled wine-bottle corks” and upholstered in leather. It’s also noted as a limited edition, but I found no mention of that on the retail sites.

Jasper Morrison’s Monopod is a sculptural piece, vaguely reminiscent of primordial stone or wooden objects. The Monopod stands sturdily, tapering with an elegant curve to a wedge-shaped backrest. As a small visitor armchair, the Monopod is a companion for sofas and larger armchairs, and in public areas thanks to its solidity can be used in lounges and reception areas. The structure of the armchair, with its plastic shell upholstered on the inside means that the Monopod retains its precise shape even if used for lengthier periods and is very comfortable.

materials: polyethylene carcass, polyurethane foam seat and backrest upholstery.

Also available through here, but priced at $2,700.00.
