#146 Rotating Squares table

While I organize my thoughts from 100% Design and Tent London, I’ll leave you to admire Tom Cecil’s Rotating Squares table. It’s more than impressive in person and I took a short video (on my phone, so don’t have high expectations) to show it in action. Orders are taken on commission and start at £2000.00.

blow up bamboo collection

You’ve seen the original “blow up” series in stainless steel (2003), but take a look at the newer bamboo version. The natural bamboo sticks are hand tied using raffia soaked in glue, which results in a strong yet lightweight framework. It’s nice to see a warmer alternative to the original steel.

Vika Veine

Okay, so we usually try to avoid featuring things from IKEA, because you most likely already know what they have and it’s a no-brainer if you’re on a very tight budget. But this little desk seems like the perfect sort of thing for a cramped workspace, and with the inside lined in felt with pockets and paper holders, plus a cable management compartment, it’s suddenly sprung from so-so to a wow-that’s-a-big-bang-for-your-buck sort of item. Keep in mind you’d still have to buy the legs, but that’s not a lot to add on price wise.

NW1 Table

Hand thrown out of 62 kilo wet clay, these tables designed by Nicholai Wiig Hansen are a sight to behold. With colors inspired from Nordic painters, they are hand painted (painstakingly, it seems) at a Danish potter workshop. The video below shows the process.

Sean Dix Forte Coffee Table

Not a bad price for a coffee table, seeing as it’s comfortably under the $500 mark. The angled legs makes for an interesting detail, yet it’s robust and sturdy looking, as it should be since the legs are cut from solid American walnut (or oak). A veneered hardwood top finishes it off with a nice ‘organic geometry’.

American Walnut ($379) or American Oak ($349).
Also available in a round-topped version for $499.

35.5 x 35.5 x 17 (W x D x H”)

Spoon Table

Nice legs, right? Not only are they shapely, but they also fold down to make for easy storage. A very thin (15mm) honeycomb aluminum top makes for an extra light weight surface.

Design Antonio Citterio & Toan Nguyen, 2008.
Polypropylene, honeycomb aluminum, laminate.

Paperweight Desk

Made entirely of 100% recyclable cardboard, this white gloss desk knocks the socks off of practically every other desk out there. At £151.00 (~$225), it’s super affordable, has a cable management system (very important) and can be assembled in a few minutes. If you move around a lot, the assembly/disassembly of furniture should not be taken lightly, nor should you miss the fact that this desk is super light and super strong. Now, if only a US retailer would pick it up, I’m sure exclamations of joy would be heard throughout the 50 states.

Marble Coffee Table (match off)

At first glance, these two pictures might appear to be of the same table taken in different lighting, but perhaps the more discerning can pick out a few tiny details that sets one apart from the other. There’s not much, mind you, but there is a difference, most noticeably in the price.

Can you guess which one is $900 and which is $300?

Clarity Color Glass Tables

This looks like something straight out of Verner Panton’s portfolio, doesn’t it? Pink, orange, and yellow glass is combined to form these colorful ‘color-wheel’ tables. Now, if only they made this in a lucite-ish version at, let’s say, a fifth of the cost, then maybe it’d fit nicer into all of our budgets.
