Quell & Company designs iPhone dock to be "at home in the home"

Quell & Company's swivelling Spool Dock works as both a charging dock and cable manager. The dock is compatible with the iPhone 5c and later editions, as well as the iPad mini and fifth-generation iPod touch. Conscious that the dock would be on show in a home environment, the brand's co-founder Jeremy Saxton wanted to create something more in keeping with interior design than technology design. "Most tech accessories try to mimic the devices they hold, but knowing that a dock is only used for a small fraction of the day I wanted to create an object that felt at home in the home," he told Dezeen.

"Similar to a nice vase, I wanted it to look right whether it was being used or not. " Saxton selected materials for both their functionality and their Scandinavian aesthetic.

Rovero says the project aims to symbolically turn waste material derived from animals back into animals.

Vienna Design Week continues until 11 October. Dark Side collection of 3D printed vessels by Michaël Malapert. The faceted forms of these 3D-printed wireframe bowls and vessels by French designer Michaël Malapert are inspired by the Japanese art of origami.

The bowl, plate, vase, candle holder and desktop container are based on archetypal forms, which are subjected to a digital process that turns the surfaces into faceted shapes. Malapert said the folded paper forms produced by experts in origami influenced the angular geometry of the designs, which are reduced to a structural outline. "[The] Dark Side creations are inspired by numerical modelling softwares reinterpreting and focusing on origami know how," explained Malapert. "Only the graphic skeleton of the object is maintained, while the material is reduced to the minimum. " The products can be used as containers, lanterns or ornamental centrepieces.

Ladder by Charlie Styrbjörn Design. London Design Festival 2013: Gothenburg designer Charlie Styrbjörn will present a ladder with curving linked rungs during the London Design Festival next month.

Working under Charlie Styrbjörn Design, the designer steam-bent sections of solid wood to maintain the direction of the grain along the shaped sections. "I wanted to create a unique ladder for interior use with a high decorative value but still functioning as a good ladder should," said Styrbjörn. Treads are flat at the centre, but curve up on alternate sides as they rise to create a continuous line between the two long poles either side. Stained black or left natural, the ladders are not currently in production but will be exhibited at the Tent London exhibition as part of next month's London Design Festival.

Engineering Temporality chandelier by Studio Markunpoika. Steel rings were moulded around a wooden chandelier before it was burnt away, leaving this latest piece in a collection of disintegrated furniture by Amsterdam-based Studio Markunpoika. Studio Markunpoika founder Tuomas Markunpoika formed a web of rings around the original wood piece then set it alight to leave a fuzzy memory of the original object. "The hardest part was to find a suitable light source, and to fix wiring so it contoured the inside shape and didn't interfere with the see-through aesthetics," Markunpoika told Dezeen.

Terrace2 by Galeazzo Design. Galeazzo Design have designed the interior of Terrace2 in São Paulo, Brazil. From the designers: With 88m² the space has a lot of colors and its inspiration comes from the crossing of the east (orient) and west (occident) cultures, in a contemporary way. With the segmented painting on the walls and roof, the designer aims to breake the place amplitude in a bold and irreverent way, that reminds the origami’s folding. Bamboo furniture, lacquer and hardwood, traditional references to China flow over the high-tech bamboo floor and contrast with the extravagant wallpaper printed with stylized golden dragons.
