Cool chair, trean.

The first one looks like it could double as an ironing board.

OOPS, I mean the glow blo inflatable lamp.I also love the glow ball inflatable lamp.That is a Jasper Morrison design.
Trean,
you should check out www.moooi.com
Its a design house started by Marcel Wanders.He gained fame for his knot chair. He seems to have a limitless supply of crestive energy. He also has produced work for flos,cappelini & Droog design.
Its always refreshing to see your design oriented postings.
Im going to Houston nect week and they have a great design store called Sunset Settings.The women that owns it buys with her heart & always has very cool,Interesting adaptations in the way she presents each item and buys in very bizzare colorations.
I always buy a slew of things when Im there.

Oooh, where was this thread?

I love modern furniture, almost more than Yohji.

I really like Karim Rashid.

Astrid, if you like Rashid you should really check out Marc Newson's work (http://www.marcnewson.com ) they probably wouldn't appreciate the comparison but they often use similar shapes in their work: the curvilinear lines, organic shapes juxtaposed with use of synthetic materials. IMHO, Rashid is a better packaging designer than he is a furniture designer. He did some great packaging systems for Shiseido perfume and I believe his studio worked on the Prada cosmetics packaging. I must admit that some his lamps are cute, but his silly DJ table just gives me the jeebies.

Droog design is great, they do wonderfully clever stuff. I have one of their milk bottle lamps... makes me smile every time I look at it.

One of my favorite pieces of furniture is the Eames walnut stool, or the Time Life stool. I love how sculptural it is and the wood grain is so damn pretty. I have the one labelled C (in the picture below) at home.

That last picture you posted (of the Rashid chair) also looks like it was very much inspired by one of the classics that the Eames(es) did way back in the 50s. I'm posting a pic because the chair also happens to be one of my favorites.

i love droog! i collect little droog things

karim rashid makes me want to puke... his furniture is ok (yeah, karim, you really invented neon colors and blobby shapes, i'm sure :roll: ) but in his interviews he comes off as such an a$$... and has anyone seen the book he put out right after 9/11, called "i want to change the world"? it was all about how his brilliant designs would make history. he replaced mr. starck as most pompous designer in my book.

marc newson i like better, if only because he worked so hard before becoming a design superstar... in his book there are amazing pictures of the first pieces he made, and the hand-constructed metal-plate chaise... amazing!

i guess droog is my favorite, but the bourellac (sp.?) brothers are brilliant as well... for older stuff, i love gaetano pesce (i've got the up1 chair) and, of course, the eames, and joe columbo for ridiculous things

i used to be a giant industrial design whore but now i'm a clothing whore... being both would bankrupt my parents!

Yeah, I've got to agree that Rashid comes across as a bit of an ego maniac in his interviews. He certainly seems to work his design superstar image. I've heard that he now fancies himself a DJ. :roll:

Gaetano Pesce is great! Which one is the up1, digi? Is that the roundish, marshmallow-looking one with the "slice" cut out or the full circle poof?

As far as new design I love Platt & Young,Jasper Morrison,Jonathan Adler, Snow Crash & Marcel Wanders.
Karim Rashid's designs are all very derivative.He is super overrated and not very original.He owes a lot to Verner Panton.For instance, HIS SOUL.
I prefer vintage design furniture.I love Florence Knoll.Her work has totally stood the test of time without looking dated at all & is always elegant.I also know I am being clichéd but I do adore Charles & Ray Eames,not everything they did...They are kinda like Jil Sander.When they were good they were amazing.When they weren't they were still better than most.
I also Love Arne Jacobsen,Hans Wegner,Arne Vodder,Kaj Frank,Timo Sarpaneva,George Nakashima,Pesce,& Verner Panton.
I have very few new design pieces.I went through a fat period where I wasn't buying clothes and bought design instead.I'm in dire need of editing the collection but when I go to do it.I just cant get rid of anything.My loft is like Sanford and Son. Im a little tired of bumping in to chairs.Its ridiculous.I went through several fazes and it shows.
Someone will probably have to dig me out of my space at some point.

That is hilarious, humble balmy gore.


Florence Knoll is classic.

I love Arne Jacobsen and Hans Wegner, as I do most of the Danish furniture designers working at that time. I've been wanting a leather Swan chair for quite some time now. And I absolutely adore Poul Kjaerholm's work.

Regarding the Eames, it's funny but the pieces I like best of theirs tend to be the items that Ray in particular had worked on. Such as the walnut stool which was reported to be her favorite piece of furniture ever.

I also like George Nelson's furniture (and LOVE the bubble lamps) although he's most known for his quirky clocks. Most of my friends think my Bertoia diamond wire chairs are incredibly ugly, but I love them.
