Presented at London Design Festival, this year, the Spire Table and the Trialog Chair are two new pieces designed by the very talented Philipp Von Hase. We’ve spotted these two projects on design-milk and we decided to share them with you, for they really managed to attract our attention and conquer us with their expressive simplicity. His work is mainly influenced by the Norwegian life and culture. The Spire Table and the Trialog Chair are both, beautifully crafted by hand.
Made of walnut and maple wood, the Spire table looks like a giant seed, with a porcelain bowl in the middle of it. Since it’s a three-legged “plantable”, we do appreciate the creative approach, that of transforming a regular table into an object that compliments the plant (a plant-shelter). “It is designed for a seed center in Bergen where you can learn about seeds, consume and swap seeds.”
The Trialog Chair is a less conventional furniture item, highly ergonomic, that has the ability to change the décor of an entire room with its striking design. “Philipp noticed that when sitting in conventional chairs we often sink into the seat and don’t know where naturally to put our arms and hands. With this in mind he set out to create a chair that encourages a more upright posture – something that is both healthy and helpful for improving body language in social settings.”
Most people have closets in their homes these days, but sometimes there’s always that need for the stuff that just doesn’t fit or belong in there. Check out this great use of an armoire to hang coats, store outerwear, and even provide a little bench area! Perfect for any entryway or mudroom. If you have a bathroom that fits one, an armoire is a beautiful way to add more storage — especially for towels. Like some of the others on this list, this armoire from Enchanted Home does away with the glass and replaces it with netting instead.
The Stacked system was designed by Julien De Smedt for Muuto. Held together using small clips, Stacked comprises modules of varied sizes that are arranged to create many different storage solutions and set-ups. The 835 Infinito modular bookcase was designed by Franco Albini for Cassina. Comprised of vertical elements, containers with doors or flaps and shelves in two depths, Infinito is an expression of possibilities that are designed to bring order to a space. Randomito from MDF Italia is a single unit hanging bookcase (available in white, orange, sand and green) that can also be turned upside down. Combining units provides a larger configuration with a striking visual impact.
