I don't need it... I NEED IT! Kodama Zomes: Hanging Geodesic Seats & Beds. As we’re about to get down and dirty with summer, you can always find us scouting ways to help enjoy the boiling hot months. Our newest favorite? Kodama Zomes, which we discovered at this year’s Dwell on Design.

Artist Berndnaut Smilde creates indoor clouds - The Style Blog. Posted at 09:33 AM ET, 03/13/2012 Mar 13, 2012 01:33 PM EDT TheWashingtonPost Berndnaut Smilde can control the weather.

The idea of multi-functional furniture doesn’t have to stop with our sofa beds and ottoman coffee tables. This unusual sofa is convertible in so many ways that it almost seems exclusive to call it a sofa. It goes from a traditional sofa configuration to a bevy of other shapes with little effort to make a big impact on the style and comfort of a room. (all images via: Svenik) Designed by the Zuiver creative team from Holland, the convertible sofa lets each sitter customize his or her own ideal seating experience. Need some head support? The secret to the furniture’s flexibility is the cushions, footrests and headrests which can be adjusted to a number of positions to suit the users. Lovers who wish to sit closer to one another can unfold the seats and the central armrest module to create a cozy snuggling nest. Epic Meal Time Cooking Kit.

106Mardi 26 novembre 2013 dans Art Aiolia est un bar flottant qu'on construit deux étudiants allemands de la ville de Weingarten pour leur projet d'étude à l'école. Ils avaient comme obligation de tout construire eux même sans matériaux polluants et avec un système ingénieux. Ce bar flottant repose sur une grosse bouée gonflable, il peut accueillir un maximum de 8 personnes et utilise l'eau du lac pour refroidir les boissons qui sont remonté grâce à un système de poulie. Un parasol a été placé au centre du bar et des cale-pieds ont été installés pour une meilleure assisse.
