1The Bike Desk:

2. Post-it Table

Why not take the idea of Post-its further and create a table that pays tribute to simplicity? Italian team Soup Studio developed the Post-it Table, a project believed perfect for people working in the creative industries: “Paper. Pen. Ideas. Many ideas. A system able to receive them all, in continuation. The simplicity and the instinct of the project will make an immediate support for thoughts that pass in the head of a designer. Once finished sheets, simply replace with a new block to get a new table”. Sounds legit!

4. Wardrobe and Sauna

Badkast was designed by Anna van der Lei and consists of a wardrobe and sauna, especially combined to meet the requirements of small modern spaces. In this case, it was a general need that provoked the idea behind the design: “The Dutch version of the Finnish sauna. You do not have to have a large garden or a great deal of space to accommodate it: the dressing room and the bathing space are integrated in a single large closet made of larch wood. The specially designed joints expand when they become wet, ensuring that the bath closet remains fully watertight”, explains the designer. Ingenious, right?

10.  Seating Units and Side Table

Did you ever look around your home and imagine a cupboard or a table break down into functional pieces? The idea for the project entitled “Within- Seating Units and Side Table ” comes from Mattias Stenberg of Stockholm-based Studio Vision, who describes the limited edition piece as follows: “I have strove to create a very “engineered” or constructed look of the ash structure by using few straight lines and arranging the grain direction of the wood to increase the perception of depth.” Elegant and versatile, the pieces do more than just adorn a room- they add personality.
