Karen Ryan ‘Body USA’

What’s the function of a chair, if you don’t sit on it? With this in mind Karen Ryan created the concept for her ‘Body USA’ project. For her a chair represents a person, just like chairs that remind her of the one her grandmother used to sit on. When she passed away, the chair passed[...]

Great and green set of furniture named ‘Furnibloom‘, designed by landscape architect Dagný Bjarnadóttir from Iceland.

Wonderful handcrafted mechanical wooden ‘Walking Table’ by Dutch designer Wouter Scheublin that comes to life when you give it a push!

Mati Karmin ‘Marine Mine Furniture’

March 24, 2011 | posted in Art & Design, Furniture | by | Leave a comment

The Estonian artist Mati Karmin creates objects, mainly furniture pieces, out of  old marine mines found in the Gulf of Finland. I guess is one of the most brilliant ways of recycling old lethal weapons, originally meant to kill and destroy, into useful stuff like beds, arm-chairs and baby carriers.
