Sapporo Shelving, One High

It’s so nice to know there is modular furniture out there that can grow and change according to your needs. This system can be changed depending on how high or tall or wide you’d like it, simply by adding or taking away an individual unit. The photo shown here is one unit with a steel base (the doors are sold separately), but you could afford to buy this now as a tv stand (for example) and then add on later to make a bookcase. The back is completely finished as well, so you could also use it as a room divider if you went with buying a taller unit.

“The Sapporo Shelving System by Jesús Gasca combines the elegant minimalism of Japanese design with Spain’s technically refined modernism to produce a system of case goods that meets a multiplicity of needs in a gracious and flexible format…”

Clip Bed by Patricia Urquiola

“This padded double bed has a unique design. The headboard continues the entire length of the bed to the footboard and folds back on itself to trace a highly original form resembling a paperclip. The headboard can adopt different inclinations. The bed can take all kinds of mattresses, with thicknesses varying from 6.5 cm to 17.5 cm, thanks to the adjustable support system. The fully removable covers can be chosen from a wide range of fabrics or leather. The proposal is completed with a side table, a lacquered structure.”

Falter Folding Stool

Reposting because it’s now $120 down from $198! I love these and I want a couple to hang on the wall for all my impromptu parties.

“Folded a million times in testing, the Falter Folding Stool is uniquely durable for such a lightweight form. The material used in its manufacture is 3F board, which is a foldable material made with a pliable middle layer between two wooden boards. This middle layer acts as a sort of swivel pin and allows the Stool to be made without hinges. The Falter Stool opens with just one hand, quickly providing a sturdy seat that holds up to 300lbs. When the versatile Stool is not in use, it folds up to a thickness of less than an inch and can be stowed in a cabinet or hung on a wall. ”

This innovative design received the Friedrich-Sulzer Design Award in 2002, the Sächsischer Staatspreis for Design in 2003 and a nomination for the Federal Award for Design in 2004. The 3F board material has also received accolades, including the Federal Award for an outstanding innovative handicraft achievement in 2003.

Available in black, red and white.
