Getting space-saving furniture right: Resource Furniture - Core7 Posted by hipstomp / Rain Noe | 20 May 2010 These days people bandy the term "space-saving" about in hopes it will make their product more attractive to us city dwellers, particularly since there are now more of us than there are rural dwellers. But much of the supposedly space-saving furniture I've seen merely transforms from one thing to another, often in a very clumsy way; to me those objects do two things poorly rather than one thing well, and their novelty outweighs their functionality. One company I've found that truly "gets" space-saving is New-York-based Resource Furniture, which distributes Italian brand Clei and other European furniture manufacturers. (You probably recognize the name Clei from their much-blogged orange couch that transforms into bunk beds.) The products Resource Furniture offers have a high level of design and engineering, with no compromises; there are no lumpy futon mattresses or "Grab lever A while holding switch B, then pull lever C" complications.

Part 5: The evolution of mass customization and personal manufac If you can imagine an object. Someone can build it. How does personal manufacturing relate to the various topics covered here? Well it democratizes manufacturing and design choices to everyone, everywhere. It decouples the design, manufacturing, assembly, and marketing of products like never before. I have categorized these related concepts into three levels of increasing complexity: 1) Mass customization, 2) 2D and 3D object printers, 3) Home manufacturing. Plate Tectonics : Subduction Zones When two oceanic plates collide, the younger of the two plates, because it is less dense,* will ride over the edge of the older plate. *[Oceanic plates grow more dense as they cool and move further away from the Mid-Ocean Ridge]. (Image: Keith-Wiess Geological Laboratories; Rice University) The older, heavier plate bends and plunges steeply through the athenosphere, and descending into the earth, it forms a trench that can be as much as 70 miles wide, more than a thousand miles long, and several miles deep. The Marianas Trench, where the enormous Pacific Plate is descending under the leading edge of the Eurasian Plate, is the deepest sea floor in the world.
