The adorable shape of the Fiat 500 has always appealed to me, and as a result I have been asking for one for Christmas for a while now. Now since a full sized car doesn’t seem to be coming my way any time soon, I might direct my gift givers to the Fiat 500 shop where you can get furniture made with Fiat 500 parts!
The “Lock” dinner table by J.P.Meulendijks comprises of interlocking bamboo layers. These layers are flexible, very strong and highly sustainable, all unique natural characteristics of bamboo as a building material.
The bamboo layers curve through and around each other, locking each other in place and creating a different look from every angle. The table is available with a glass top, or with a stained or natural bamboo top.
* The Lock dinner table can be purchased through Plankton Station for €1950 (glass top) or €2095 (bamboo top)
Now this is a fun way to entertain your dinner guests! How about having their after dinner mints delivered right to their places by motorised vehicles that run on tracks in your table top?
The table consists of a table base tray into which reversible TrackTiles with finger holes are laid, these tracks form roads between each guest and can also be reversed to form a perfectly flat table top.
* TrackTiles can be purchased in various patterns from the TrackTiles site
We have always heard that form follows function and in the case of this table that is certainly true. Made from multiple layers of wood laminated together, the top is thin but strong.
The Form Follows Function line of furniture is from Daan Mulder, an interior architecture and furniture designer.
I found this little side table featured on Ana Antune‘s blog when she featured a room that was redone into this beautiful turquoise and white space. The side table is such a simple hack, all it is is a waste paper basket that was spray painted blue, and turned upside down. So simple but yet so smart!
I’m always amazed when I see technology from movies and series from the future, become available today. Like this MT55 Pro Table. The MT55 Pro table comes with a powerful HP® tower, full HD resolution, 32 touch points, an integrated UPS, and Bose audio system. Everything you need for planning your next planet invasion or when you really need to communicate with Star Fleet Command.
Two things you usually don’t expect to hear mentioned in the same sentence, embroidery and tables. Yaroslav Galant has taken the notion that the two can’t co0exist and has thrown that idea right out the window, he has designed a table and bench with the embroidery not of the soft furnishings like cushions and chair backs, but on the table and bench themselves.
Brightly coloured geometric shapes are embroidered into holes in the furniture to create interesting overlapping shapes that pop from the white background.
