Hidden Furniture

Share.Food. This collection by product designer Bilge Nur Saltik and design-duo Rive·Roshan consists of a range of fine printed silks and glass sartorial objects.


Presented last week at Istanbul Design Week as part of the No Borders exhibition, the collection ‘Through the Looking Glass’ comprises of fine silk scarves and handkerchieves and handmade glass scarf rings, exploring the relationship between intricate patterns on the silk and the playful lenticular effect of the rings. When the scarves and rings are worn together the glass rings create surprising and expressive refraction of shape and colour. Shahrazad on Behance. The Floyd Leg. By Emily Bihl Furnishing a new home can be a daunting task for anyone, but for those who tend to regularly relocate, it's an even greater challenge.

The Floyd Leg

Furniture shopping oftentimes inspires a special blend of dread and guilt at the thought of having to transport new purchases, or leave them behind. Faced with this problem, designers Kyle Hoff and Alex O’Dell created the Floyd Leg; a set of four individual table legs equipped with F-clamps ready to be attached to any flat surface for an instant table with no hardware required. Made from cold-rolled steel in local Detroit machine shops, and available in two heights and two colors, the Floyd leg is both durable and versatile. Aside from the obvious benefits of being able to bring the “table” with you, rather than continue the buy-then-dump cycle, the designers also hope that the adaptability of the Floyd Leg encourages users to reclaim disused materials for their tabletops, further cutting down on waste.

Timed Organizer In A Book In the day and age where electronic gadgets double up as reminders of tasks and appointments, I applaud Wonjune Song’s bold move to go back to the basics of pen and paper and of course the trusty old watch. Watch Diary is basically a book with a clock set in the middle of the page.

The “red hand” indicates the current task, the “before hand” indicates past chores and the “forward hand” indicates the upcoming ones. A simple glance at the page and you’ll know if you’ve kept up your schedule or are lagging. If you can key in the text to your gadget, you may as well pen it down in this diary. On second thoughts, maybe its perfect just this ways…back to the gadget-free days! Moments in Time by Dominic Wilcox.
