Palms II Chair

With his architectural background and roots in Chicago's progressive design scene, it's hardly surprising Jeff Vioski honed his design talents with his self-titled furniture collection. Now based in L.A. but with several showrooms across the U.S., the VIOSKI collection is a modernist's configurative dream. Exhibiting fine mid-century modern aesthetics, the collection puts beautiful form in its high functionality.

Nicholas Sectional

Working with the highest quality coverings (Glant Textiles, Spinneybeck Leather and Designtex Fabrics) and skilled craftsmanship in structural construction, VIOSKI emphasise longevity as well as comfort in each unique, handmade-to-order piece. Accentuating the company's promise to furnish your lifestyle with forms to please the body as much as the eye is the equal assurance of customisation; some pieces, such as the sectional sofas and Isola Lounge, are flexible by design, but custom orders requiring specific modifications are welcomed (a 34-foot Nicholas Sectional for a Hollywood Hills home which required a 75-foot crane to install is exemplary of the lengths to which they will go to ensure client satisfaction.)

Manhattan Bed

But if relaxing design purism isn't comfort enough, VIOSKI's environmentally ecological and socio-ecological ethics should have you sitting comfortably. With three levels of environmentally conscious manufacturing on offer, you can recline sublime knowing that your clean style is sustainable and the durability can be left to posterity. Equally important, though, is the social awareness aspect and theirs is prudent. Aside from the goodness of their hearts, they adhere to the sadly seldom seen yet simple business equation; be good to your employees and they will be good to you. So, if you like your style with substance, you're in good company with VIOSKI.

Boogie Woogie and Annett from Magis

I was actually in the mist of gathering some info about a different product from Magis, Pierre Paulin's "Flower". However I found myself drawn to teh image (above) featuring Stefano Giovannoni's "Boogie Woogie" shelving system and Francesco Binfaré's Annett (on wheels). While theres probably no reason to place an office style chair facing a shelving system in real life (though I guess you might want to roll about on your chair picking up books in a moment of extreme laziness). These are definitely to products that would compliment each other if you where to set about creating a slightly Dali-esque feel to a room.

Magis Flower (Black)

Debuting in Milan earler this year "Flower" is a transparent / translucent (depending on the clear or black colowr choise) chair. The chair is designed by the legendary Pierre Paulin one of the masters of mid century modernist design. One must marvel (well I do anyway) at the ability of aging modernist / futurist / minimalist etc. designers and architects ability to continue to strive to create new forms and constantly incorporate new materials into their work. Paulin himself is now in his early 80's and this design feels as modern as any you will see this year. Personally I prefer the black, but I can see how in the right setting transparent with a hot pink seat would be a very striking item.

Deco Office Chair with Upholstered Seat

This appeared on PadStyle a while ago and I bookmarked it in Google Reader and then forgot I was intending to post it. I'm rather taken by deco influenced modern pieces, though I think it's a style thats probably best used in moderation unless you own a genuine deco property.

The chair is available from nikkoshops for $299


Minimal Plus Seating System From JSPR

Aptly named the “Minimal Plus” series, you would be hard pressed to find to find a seating system that conveys the minimalist look so faithfully. As the ultimate in simplicity, the straight uncompromising lines are only interrupted by the star shaped pattern on the concave elements of the pieces, which are made from foam covered in a layer of Realskin rubber.

Designed by Philip Bogaerts for JSPR, each item in the Minimal Plus range works as a standalone piece or can be combined together to complete a lounge area.  Each piece is available in 20 different colours, ranging from earth tones and monochrome through to electric bright hues of pinks and yellows.

Tonon Chair

I have a slight fascination with asymmetrical chairs that make you somewhat dubious as to whether they will remain upright if you put your weight on them. Maybe it's just a stability paranoia  I have or maybe it's a simmering respect for the Designer’s clever enough to make not just an object of beauty (who said symmetry was beautiful?) but also an object of improbable illusion and engineering prowess.  The One for Two chair by Italian company Tonon is a perfect example. 

Available in red, orange and white, the colour range is as striking as the silhouette.

Kraftwerk DIY Cardboard Chair

kraftwerk is a cardboard chair, designed by Tom de Vrieze. The name  arises from the use of cardboard and kraftpaper-tape in its construction. The polygon, surfaced chair which can not be seen as an origami chair is very light (1,8 kg or 3.97 lb) and strong.

Kraftwerk DIY Cardboard Chair

kraftwerk is constructed from only 4 mm or 0.16 in. thick cardboard.  The chair is filled with polyurethane expansion foam. Originally Tom tried to support the chair using only internal structures, without using foam, but the unfolding patterns became to complex for DIY-builders. While this means teh chair is not as environment friendly as he would have liked. It does meanthe cair is more durable and stronger than some other cardboard chairs. most cardboard chairs are using larger thick nesses (and/)or are layered which are using a lot of cardboard-surface. kraftwerk is built with CFC-free polyurethane low expansions foam bottles. (CFC = chlorofluorocarbons, harmful chemicals that eat away at the ozone. they were most commonly found in aerosol cans, but have since been linked to the degradation of the atmosphere). Foam filling is not actually new in the furniture industry, some well known designs are riccardo blumer's lalegerra for alias and françois azambourg's mr. bugatti for cappellini. Foam filling is probably most know in the automotive industry for dashboards, seats, but also in other industries such as plumbing (water heating), construction and building.

kraftwerk is available at the tovdesign webshop as a DIY plan for 7 euro.

Terminal 1

French designer, Jean Marie Massaud, works with a contextual approach to industrial and furniture design. The Terminal 1 daybed is a single unit which forms part of his ethic for individualistic focus and creates, with its sweeping, fluid form, a welcome station for repose. Its shape supports a double function as both an arm chair and chaise longue, and there is further room for manoeuvre within materials and finishes (shown here is a plastic body on a matt-finish metal frame.)

Curacao Sofa From Indera

As soon as I saw the Curacao sofa, designed by Fabiaan Van Severen for Indera, I felt like we were old friends. I needed to nurtured by the soft, welcoming lines of this ever-so-comfortable yet ever-so-contemporary chair as if it just, well, fitted somehow.

Intrigued then was I to find that Van Severen’s philosophy compliments my visual instincts. He believes that “furniture and objects have to take their place as if they have always been there”. And boy, I think he did a good job of interpreting that belief into the Curacao. Visually it looks like it has always belonged in my living room. Practically too because little be known at first glance, the back rail of the sofa can be adjusted so that it is the perfect depth for you. Had we been introduced at a young age, my Curacao could have grown with my lengthening legs. Always there, always perfect.

Made from felt fabrics with flatsheet steel feet, the Curacao is available in range of colours including grey, fuchsia and sky blue.

Cave Bookcase/Chair

Earlier we posted about a chair that also doubled up as a bookcase (The Bibliochaise), well here is the reverse – a bookcase that doubles up as a chair!

Called the Cave, this perculiar piece of furniture is by Japanese product designer, Sakura Adachi. The design provides a private reading space whilst giving the feeling of being hidden from others. It comes in two sizes, one for adults and one for kids.

Those of you thinking that the inbedded seating area takes away from book storage opportunities, you will be pleased to know that books can actually be stored on both sides. Because of this the Cave can actually double up as a room partition as well.

So there you have it, bookcase, reading seat and room partition all in one. How very versatile.
