The project, 3 to 5 Minutes – Rapid Handmade Furniture shows Nordberg under pressure crafting each piece of furniture in the span of just 3 to 5 minutes, as the title suggests. Each step in production is timed as she works her way through each project, which includes two easy chairs with extra pillows and a small trolley, all made in under an hour.

decorology the style files HAUTE NATURE Furniture Helps Set The Stage For Today's Workplaces By John Michael From the May 2014 issue of Today’s Facility Manager When thinking about the workplace of the future, what comes to mind? Are there cubicle farms as far as the eye can see? Rows and rows of treadmill desks? Or no physical corporate office whatsoever because everyone will be telecommuting? The workplace is transforming at a rapid pace. After all, fms are responsible for coordinating the space, infrastructure, operation, and design of workplaces.

Well, this one did run a tad over $200 - right at $230 using up some scrap 1/4" plywood for the drawer bottoms and we already had the screws, but we feel the extra $30 bucks - and the week of work - was definitely worth it.

Understanding the Kano Model - A Tool for Sophisticated Designers By Jared M. Spool Originally published: Jan 18, 2011 Thanks to Sciencelakes for translating this article to Danish. Thanks to Vitaly Mijiritsky as well for translating this article to Hebrew. When Flickr, the photo-sharing web site, first appeared on the scene, the designers delighted their users with a variety of interesting innovations. At that time, practically every other web site had a standard home page. Flickr's page was different. It wasn't very long before other sites started incorporating similar capabilities.

The Kano Model - A Tool for Sophisticated Designers Years ago, we came across the work of Noriaka Kano, a Japanese expert in customer satisfaction and quality management. This model predicted the reaction of users as the key elements of Flickr's personalized homepage propagated to other web sites.
