furniture design

Sean Woolsey

i discovered california based furniture designer & artist Sean Woolsey through FvF who did a great profile of his home yesterday. what really intrigued me was his website that showcases his pieces in such a fun way. it’s so normal to see designer furniture in a cold and static setting, but seeing a kid in spiderman costume pouring cereal milk onto the surface of a beautiful table is so rad. i also really love his artwork, which he creates on cold rolled sheet metal & mixed materials including paints, patinas and water based acids.

Wabi-Sabi, a Japanese philosophy, is a large influence on my work and life. It recognizes a beauty of things imperfect which bear the imprint of time. Wabi Sabi is about the minor and the hidden, the tentative and the ephemeral. It finds true beauty in the organic. My art is inspired by my travels and photos that I take while traveling around the world and documenting my adventures. Every art piece comes with a print of the photo that I took that inspired me to make it, whether it be the colors, patterns, textures, or memory.

oooms

oooms is a dutch design company that makes original, quirky & often hilarious products. “We design products, small or big, for ourselves and for others. We focus on high quality and originality.” i want all of these:

road kill carpet:

Do you know the feeling that you do not want to take a look at something, but you still do? The Road Kill carpet is a continued struggle between attraction and repulsion. It’s a warm, soft, cuddly carpet that attracts you to take a nap on it. But at the same time its a repulsive image of a car-flattened, bloody fox.

goldplated staples:

Studio OOOMS thinks we can all agree that the overly bland corporate environment can use any type of excitement boost that it can get. Enter these 14 Karat goldplated staples.  Intended primarily as a form of jewelry, these luxury pieces can be applied to clothing (or just about anything) with the help of your average stapler. Of course you can also impress your boss by turning in your next report decked out in gold. He will feel you.

rebellious cabinet:

The drawers of this cabinet can never be fully closed. When closing one drawer, the one next to it will open a bit. If you want to open a drawer that is fully closed, you just hit, kick or push the drawer next to it.

rocker:

‘Rocker’ is an universal attachment to turn almost any four-legged chair into a real rocking chair. Depending on the chair of your choice, you can get any kind of rocking chair; from very relaxed to a more active one.

six pack:

The Sixpack is a bottle carrier that can hold up to 6 beer, soft drink, or water bottles. It’s perfect for those BYO dinner outings where a normal 6 pack gets destroyed after you rip out one beer.

cupboards

i love these kitchen cupboards – so simple! i know people get kind of stressed out about redoing their kitchens, then they end up spending lots of cash on fake wood and fake granite tops etc etc – but look how great this solution is. i reckon probably inexpensive in comparison, too. if you ever get tired of that scandanavian wood vibe, just paint them. boom. via decor8
