Molo – textile softseating by forsythe and macallen for molo

“Like the kraft paper version, each of the flexible honeycomb units of textile softseating is modular with magnetic end panels, allowing them to fan open into stools, or for any two or more of the same size pieces to be connected together to create long winding benches and unique seating topographies. the flexible nature and large diameter of the fanning loungers and 36”dia. stools, allows them to be leaned on top of one another, or against walls to create uniquely contoured organic shapes with backrests.

the combinations of joining, stacking and leaning the fanning stools, benches and loungers allows endless possibilities for creating seating environments and interior landscapes.

with use over time, the edges of the textile material will gently soften, creating a unique organic pattern within the crisp honeycomb geometry of the structure.”

One Less Desk

My new friend Adam alerted me that the fine folks over at Hecker Design are now taking pre-orders for their one less desk which will ship in March.

The idea behind One Less Desk is that CRT’s are being traded up for flat screen monitors and one can now survive with much less desk surface area than before.

What about all your paperwork, you ask? I’ve been following the 37 Signals’ David Heinemeier’s suggestion to scan all my papers and bills to PDF and then shred them–that way I’ve got everything I could possibly need at my fingertips even if I’m at home, the office or out of town.

Squares Console

I like the geometry of this console- more of an interesting object to put a vase or rest your keys on than a storage piece, but it has character.

Waxed iron, gray granite top

Marcel Sofa

This sofa’s fabric is definitely not for the faint of heart. So if you’re brave enough to go with a bold floral, I salute you on behalf of the rest of us that always settle for solids. (This frame is also available in granite.)

This is the piece to shake things up, to give a room that has nothing to wear something to talk about. Bold abstract in easy to live with neutrals takes the classic floral sofa you grew up with and turns it upside down on its modern roots. High fashion arm has mini-scroll; high salon back cocoons spare uni-cushion bench. Taupe, white and brown with just a pop of orange is never dull, never imposing. Also available in granite.

Atmos Rocker

There aren’t necessarily a wide variety of modern rocking chairs out there, not to mention the green sort, so that’s why this one stands out quite a bit. I like the angle of the seat/back/neck- it reminds me of the
Omni Chair by Marten Claesson & Eero Koivisto.

“Atmos Chairs take their design cue from the simple utilitarian beauty of the Shaker tradition. The “ears” that jut out from the top of the chairs add a distinctive feature to these chairs. Atmos Chairs are a comfortable way to sit while satisfying our need to conserve resources. Their construction yields 8-10 times more usable wood from a log than solid lumber. Unless otherwise specified, the webbing is sourced from surplus stocks of automotive seat belts. The wood is European beech sustainably sourced from FSC certified forests; adhesives and finishes are water based. This product qualifies for LEED points. Suitable for all contract and residential applications.”

Mellow Sectional

I like the looks of this modern sectional, and the fact that all different sorts of configurations are possible is a definite plus.

“A democratic lounge for habitats small in square footage or lucky in large space. Three armless chairs– left back, right back, full back– and ottoman modulate in all sorts and all sizes of comfy sofa configurations. You can even put chairs back to back lobby style. Get creative with two colors/fabrics: super mellow velvet in warm concrete (shown here) or slubby, linen-y weave in tones of coffee.”

Sherwood Brass, Black Walnut and Jetson End Tables

Just in case you’ve been trying to find an end table, here’s three that have some personality. (And, yes, the Jetson one is reminiscent of the
Saarinen Side, but the top is mirrored and the proportions are slightly different, so it’s forgivable.)

A little pricey, but it’s simplicity at its best.

Guitar & Amp Pillowcases

Yes, these could probably be found in a college dorm room, but I kind of like them anyways.

“Rock yourself to sleep with matching guitar-and-amp cases, each designed with tour T-shirt-style screenprinted graphics. Standard size covers are 210 thread count; 73% cotton/27% nylon. Machine wash.”
