Saw these at The Gadget Show Live and thought they where rather cool. Each lamp table stands 75cm and is welded to a chequer-plate base for added stability. The detailing incorporates bearings, nuts, springs, cogs, bolts, chains and steel fabrication.

With a new Predator movie on the way, it's the perfect time to get on for the sci-fi fan who thought they had it all.

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.

The glossy outer shell gives a sense of protection, whilst the soft black leather encased within pays promotion to the notion of sheer relaxation. Beautifully contrasting materials and curvaceous lines make this design an ideal monochromatic focal point for a contemporary interior.

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 DIY Cardboard Chair

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

Top 25 Interior Design & Furniture Blogs At PadStyle

"PadStyle scoured the web looking for the best interior design and furniture blogs, and below is what we found. From large multi-writer blogs like Moco Loco to more personal fare like Gaile Guevara, the below 25 blogs (plus 5 honorable mentions) are the cream of the design crop."

French company Pinel & Pinel specialise in bespoke luxury goods, an offshoot of which is their Trunks line. Spearheaded by the Pinel we know as Fred, Trunks is "an exclusive multi-function trunk collection, a re-interpretation of the 1930's steamer trunks." In a nutshell, what Pinel & Pinel do is the little-known but rather pleasing art of encorporating stuff into trunks. So, join me as I pick a few faves in the equally little-known but really rather pleasing game that is Top Trunks With Pinel & Pinel...

Pinel And Pinel Trunk

Behold, I give you Movie Trunk! The first in this little list of fold-out faves is this foldaway home theatre system. You can choose the coat from many colours for the wood and leather structure which provides 3-drawer space for holding up to 48 DVD's, and detail is courtesy of nickelled brass. But, I hear you cry, what of the juicy innards? Well, juicy they be as the Pinels have seen fit to to endow this little number with audio/visual output from the mighty Bang & Olufsen. The trunk is home to a BeoVision 6-26 television with DVD1 DVD/CD player, Beolab 6000 subwoofer and 2 Beolab 3 speakers. So, this really does have the junk in its trunk.

Pinel And Pinel Trunk

The Pic Nic Trunk. Rather mythically subtitled "Trunk Of Happiness," this should please anybody out there on a quest for the ultimate picnic hamper. Whilst it may not be the solution to all your problems, it certainly won't hamper a good picnic. Once again, this product is available in a choice of 51 colours and is of wood and leather structure with brass detail. This particular trunk includes "11 drawers in which all the must-have accessories for a champagne picnic has been placed." A compartmentalists dream and surely a must for those in the upper echelons of society who like to shoot, eat and leave.

Pinel and Pinel Trunk

I-Trunk - it's the pocket office! Movie Trunk and Pic Nic Trunk might be what you want, but I-Trunk, in all its super-worky/organisy glory, might be just what you need. With structure and detail as above, I-Trunk contains 4 drawers sectioned for pens and paper and 10 suspended leather files. Also, it comes delivered with 21-inch Apple iMac, JBL Creature sound system and a Canon Pixma iP90 printer. Handily enough, this trunk comes on a set of castors so your stationery need never be stationary.

Pinel And Pinel Trunk

Kibako - "The Green Trunk." The company which provides the option of bespoke crocodile as standard show their nature-loving side once more with the Kibako. Structurally as above, this particular product lets the green fingered folk out there get their trunk on. With two drawers which function as collecting trays, Osram 80w horticultural light and a selection of bonzai maintenance tools, you'll be good to grow in no time.

Well there you have it, four areas of your life that can be foldably trunkated by Pinel & Pinel. Certainly a company to keep an eye on lest any other lifestyle facet should get 'trunked.'

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.
