Jean-Sébastien Lagrange rolls parchment into a lampshade

The Topaze lamp is made of a single sheet of folded parchment, intricately creased and then rolled into a cone. "When Anne-Lise Courchay showed me the parchment, I wanted to find new ways of using and transforming it," Lagrange told Dezeen. "She told me that she had never tried to fold it. In my opinion, it was an interesting thing to do in terms of structure, pattern and light diffusion. " Parchment is made from animal skin, usually calfskin, goatskin or – as in this case – skeepskin, and was historically used for writing on. Design. Flip Panel Door. This radical redesign of a door by Austrian artist Klemens Torggler uses a folding and pivoting system to collapse and roll to one side.

Flip Panel Door

Instead of a single panel attached to a frame by two hinges, Torggler's Evolution Door folds into four triangular sections that collapse in on themselves and turn round before straightening back up into a rectangle.Two halves of the door are attached by pivots at the bottom and top of the frame and a hinge in the middle. By gently pulling at the joint that connects the two middle panels together, the door folds and slides across the entrance. Torggler calls the system Drehplattentür, which translates as the "flip panel door". Leibal Blog. About the Author – Leo Lei My two passions in life are entrepreneurship and design.

Buying stuff for a new baby is one of the most exciting moments of life, but that excitement quickly turns to disbelief when you realize just how much stuff they need and just how quickly they outgrow everything.

Adjustable Highchair Grows With Kids from Infant to Tween

The Froc chair is meant to grow with your child, giving you one less thing that needs to be replaced every few months. The Froc is so adjustable that it can grow with your child from the ages of six months to approximately 10 years. For babies, the Froc is a high chair with a safety seat belt. As the child gets bigger, the seat, footrest and back rest all change positions to accommodate the growing bundle of joy. Because kids love to do things that they probably shouldn’t, the Froc is stable enough to stay upright even when it’s being climbed on. Intuitive Height-Adjustable Cork Stool is a Real Screw-Up. Sitting in a chair that is set to the wrong height can result in back problems and a lot of annoying discomfort.

Intuitive Height-Adjustable Cork Stool is a Real Screw-Up

Although many chairs can be adjusted up or down depending on the length of your legs, none of them do it with the same flawless style as the SCRW Stool. SCRW was conceived by German designer Manuel Welsky especially for people who want a simpler, more intuitive way to change their sitting altitude. The seat of the stool is made of cork and it features channels on the side into which the tubular steel frame fits. Because the mechanism for raising and lowering the seat is non-mechanical and features no moving parts (other than the seat itself) there is a very low risk for breaking or misuse. In fact, the concept is so simple that even a child could figure out how to make the seat taller or shorter. My Writing Desk.

Instead of moulding, cutting and gluing blocks of foam then sewing fabric on top, Rachel Griffin is upholstering in reverse, using a fabric "bowl", filling it with foam and dipping the frame in it. Swell combines several steps of furniture production into one by using the fabric and frame as the original mould for the foam. "Produced upside-down, the fabric (moulded felt) is used as a bowl into which liquid polyurethane foam is poured, while an elm wood frame is suspended directly above in a jig. The foam slowly expands, rising out of the felt and through the form of the frame, binding the two parts together. " Via Architonic. Spatz Brick Furniture by Fx Balléry.

The distilled essence of the Windsor chair, in wood and neoprene, Purist Chair by Elisa Honkanen consists of four wooden bars, a plywood panel, two screws and neoprene cord.

(Click the images below for full sized images) Says Honkanen, "I've been a fan of Angelo Mangiarotti's Eccentrico table for a long long time, and I wanted to see if it is possible to make a chair with the same concept (= using gravity joints). " "So the plywood board that forms the seat has four inclined holes for the wooden bars which create legs and support for the backrest. To stabilize the structure is enough to have two screws that'll fix the lateral wooden bars to each-other and neoprene cord to unite the whole structure. " "Form language recalls old Windsor chairs, being an extremely reduced version of its 'ancestors' (that's why the name Purist).
