‘Chairless’ for Vitra by Alejandro Aravena At the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan this week furniture brand Vitra present a strap designed by Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena to be wrapped around the body and used instead of a chair. Called ‘Chairless’, the product wraps around the user’s back and knees to relieve tension while sitting on the floor. Some further information from Vitra: Chairless is a simple tool for sitting – a textile strap joined into a loop, measuring 85 cm in length and 5 cm in width, which can be wrapped around the back and knees in order to stabilise the body and relieve tension, while in a seated position. Chairless is not a replacement, but rather an alternative for a chair, particularly in situations where a chair isn’t available: at the park, beach or anywhere else outdoors; at concerts; in lecture halls and at seminars; in crowded trains and airport lounges. Chairless takes pressure off the back and thigh muscles. Chairless is based on a sitting strap commonly used by the Ayoreo Indians.

The Floating mug by Tigere Chiriga "..this nifty no-coaster-required coffee mug" made into lowbrow brilliant quadrant right next to Sarah Silverman. Check it out! The Floating mug has a facebook page, feel free to show it some love. Your support is awesome! If you can't pledge, you can help by pinning the project. In December of 2008, I had just relocated to North Carolina from New York when I came up with the idea of a "floating mug". So I'm a huge tea drinker, and I have come across numerous designs for cups that have some kind of built in coaster, however, the design's fell short of what I was looking for. After a great deal of research, I managed to find and work with a manufacturer in China to create the original prototype mugs for me, which I've been using for the past few years. I was fortunate, enough to discover Kickstarter recently and have realized the opportunity for me to see if this is a mug people really like. The money pledged will be used to manufacture a master mold of both the mug and and the handle.

The Coolest Elevator in New York & Scouting NY Last week, I was scouting office space in a building in Queens. My guide brought me to this totally unassuming elevator: Really, I have to show you this as I encountered it: WOW. It’s like Willy Wonka built an elevator to the land of Oz! Here’s a full panorama looking toward the rear of the elevator (that’s a railing beneath the mirror)… …and a reverse pan showing the front: Lining the ceiling are these great monster heads made out of mechanical bits… Each is poking through its own hole: More characters, including a king: Another character: The elevator is a last remnant from when the former Macy’s warehouse building catered to a more artsy clientele. Best of all, there’s a cool fish-eye mirror at one end, which makes it look like you’re leaning out of some parallel dimension: I’m a big fan of anything that makes my day a little more surreal, and this is the last thing I was expecting on the other side of those bland white elevator doors.

DESIGN >>> Archetto Seating par Sybarite et Marzorati Ronchetti Pour célébrer la 70ème édition de Pitti Uomo ( le plus important rendez vous de la mode homme dans le monde qui se tenait à Florence du 11/14 janvier), Marzorati Ronchetti a confié à Sybarite la tâche de créer un concept de design pour meubler un secteur en combinant l’esthétique et la multi-fonctionnalité. Le résultat est un module qui joue avec la démarcation entre l’affaire, le loisir, le divertissement et l’hospitalité. Tout s’est exprimé par des formes biologiques, libres et gracieuses. Le projet trône dans une salle appelée « le Club des Acheteurs », une pièce utilisée par les membres de la Chambre nationale des Acheteurs qui cette année travaille avec la « Fashion Illustrated » pour organiser des réunions, des rencontres et des tables rondes.

SNOW SKI WINE RACK | Reclaimed Skis Bottle Racks Michael Bellino Michael Bellino started making SkiChairs back in 1993 after purchasing a house on a lake and building an enormous dock that needed furniture. Looking for an alternative to plastic patio furniture, he found inspiration in O'Neils Bike and Ski Shop, which he managed. Two weeks and two prototypes later, he created the first SkiChair with his old racing and bump skis. Michael says he's still sitting in that original chair today! Over the next few years he expanded the product offering using different types of sports equipment. "I consider myself more of a deck and dock carpenter, but by trade, I graduated with an electrical engineering degree, and creating furniture was really a leap of faith." Currently, SkiChair recycles over 20,000 pieces of sports equipment each year, which includes snow and water skis, wake and snow boards, hockey sticks, baseball bats and golf clubs.
