Welcome - Hoxton Street Monster Supplies. Longitudinal : Knitty First Fall 2012. Niche Carving: 5 Ultra-Modern Plywood Furniture Products. This wonderful woodwork by Kyle Buckner is hard to categorize – contemporary, sure, and custom crafted … but beyond that, these elegantly sculpted tables and chairs seem to span a wide stylistic gap without feeling as if they were created by various designers.

Niche Carving: 5 Ultra-Modern Plywood Furniture Products

The pieces draw on everything from classic hand-made wood furniture to contemporary metal-and-glass home products, but are unified in terms of quality, finish and abstract form. Using traditional stains on top of modern plywood-bending techniques, some items feature over a hundred layers of carefully-assembled slices used to create their dynamic curves. In general, there is a kind of expressive, sculptural and retro-modern look to them in terms of their volumes, oak wood and high-gloss finish choices, but at the same time the use of glass and metal is creative and contemporary. Exotic or Overkill? Series of 18 Extreme Leather Furnishings.

Horns, tusks and tails make the reality of the mostly-leather creations a present visual factor in a visceral way – anthropomorphic elements (legs and armrests) augment the life-like feel of these furnishings. Creative, creepy or both? Michel Hallard is an artist and craftsman who is very aware that his furniture can make people uncomfortable – even if the materials he uses are soft and supple. It would be too easy to dismiss these items as macabre and sensationalist. Fascinating Lamps by Calabarte.

Calabarte is the pseudonym of a Polish artist named Przemek Krawczynski, whose art takes on a peculiar but incredibly beautiful form: cool lamps.

Fascinating Lamps by Calabarte

The name itself is a portmanteau of two words – art (obviously), and calabash, the fruit that carries his imagination. The calabash is a bottle gourd originating in India, although Calabarte gets his supply from Senegal. Due to ancient domestication and usage, the bottle gourd has an incredibly tough outer shell. In the past, the gourd’s usage was defined mostly as a water container, due to having a tough, smooth shell with an ergonomic shape for handling, and natural buoyancy on water.

I believe the original design for this lamp was done over 30 years ago by the firm Iqlight, they sell pre-cut parts in case you do not want to make the parts yourself. Below is the shape as an image, and i've also attached a DXF file. You will need sheets of paper or plastic that allow light to get through. The stiffness of your material determines how large your pieces can be - stiffer material for larger pieces and larger lamps, thinner material for smaller pieces and smaller lamps. (see next step) You will need a lamp fixture - just a raw socket on a cord. I experimented with a number of different plastics and sizes for the parts, here are my results: T-Shirt Hell: t-shirts, shirts, funny t-shirts, funny shirts, baby shirts.
