Konstantin Grcic: Diana Series

While I’ve seen one or two of this series before, never have I seen them grouped together in such an impressive way, nor in so many different colors. And, yes, of course, it is slightly more expensive than your usual run-of-the-mill side/coffee table, but it’s not your usual run-of-the-mill side/coffee table. So, there you have it.

“The Diana series numbered from A to F allow you to create your own art installation. Side table? Cubist Sculpture? Lectern? Notebook stand? Reference library? Konstantin Grcic’s new series of sheet metal tables is open to a wide range of interpretations and uses and, most importantly, to the imagination. Just as words are built from letters, the Diana tables combine with other furniture and objects in ever-varying visual contexts. With the Diana alphabet from A to F, a living room can be transformed to a CAFE or to a word from an entirely new, entirely personal language. iF Award Winner & reddot Award Winner.”

Sheet metal, powder coated.

‘folded’ coffee table

Check it out, an origami-ish coffee table. No, it doesn’t fold up, but the surface appears to have been folded/unfolded with it’s ‘sloping planes’. It would look pretty killer in person; I’m willing to bet money on it.

“inspired by the art of origami, the ‘folded’ table is yet another in a recent line of impressive designs by arik levy. available in two heights, this rectangular coffee table is supported by a chromed steel base, and has an .5″ thick plastic top made using ‘carousel moulding’ – a process which allows a full consistancy of materials and a polished, scratch resistant surface. the three-dimensional table top is something to be admired, with it’s asymmetrical sloping planes – like, naturally, a sheet of folded origami paper – which creates a diamond-like effect when light is shined upon it. and yet, the inclinations are very slight, so you won’t have to worry about things sliding off.”

top available in two colors : standard black or burgundy red.

Air Bench

I like the bench, though I might be more likely to describe it as a bench with holes drilled into it rather than ‘circles of air’, but, hey, it sure sounds nicer…

“Architect Thomas Sandell breathes life into his wood with this impressive table design. Circles of air are sculpted into this endpiece, the perfect complement to its living, vibrant finish.”

Legare Straight Desk

So I’m preparing for my whole “flat-pack” adventure, and while this desk is a little blobby for my taste, it certainly fits the bill. This desk has been designed for companies that “need a quick set-up or who move around a lot” and can be assembled and disassembled as frequently as you need. They’re also sturdy–they’ve been tested to withstand 900 pounds of pressure.

When flat all the pieces measure up to under a few inches.
