Industrial designer Ben Palmer created the Xuxu Chair, a beautiful minimal chair that explores furniture design in a deconstructive and minimalist sense. This work seeks to make something unique and different in an area that is overrun with continually “new” designs.
The Pill Wall Desk is designed by Lithuanian-based Emko, a furniture and home accessory design company that takes inspiration from the intersection of Northern Scandinavian, Western European and Eastern Russian cultural spaces to create products for the modern home. Multifunctional and stylish, the desk aims to provide the cure for cluttered living spaces while also offering an innovative way of creating a compact workspace. The round cabinet can be installed on a wall at any height, to suit the needs of the owner. Its interior features display and storage spaces, with an adjustable shelving system and sockets. Thanks to its ingenious and adaptable design, it can be used as a working desk, bar, storage space, or bookshelf. Available here in white with a white or black back, the Pill Wall Desk also comes in black, blue and yellow.
The Torsion chair by designer Natalie Musorina is designed to be made out of one single strip of plywood, painstakingly bent along a defined 3D curve to create a Mobius strip-esque shape. The concept of torsion comes into the way the wood is bent. The chair’s fabric is weaved into this very wooden strip providing a tensile seating device within a torsion bent wood strip.
