Plant yourself a chair!

The increase of urban farming, whereby green spaces are opening up into shared gardens for new agricultural experiments, was the main starting point for Werner Aisslinger´s latest work.

The Berlin and Singapore based designer and architect believes that giving everyone the possibility of becoming a producer of agricultural products will be the future in regard to quality and sustainability. With this, he thought to invert the creation and development of furniture from globalized serial manufacturing to local production conserving resources. That is how ‘chair farm’ was conceived. It is Aisslinger´s vision of how this idea could be realized within an agricultural lab. The project itself is a kit which offers the ability to plant and naturally grow chairs. This initial prototype consists of a perforated steel corset which serves as a mould to give the vegetation support.

The ‘chair farm’ greenhouse and laboratory was shown at ventura lambrate as part of the ‘instant stories’ exhibition during milan design week 2012.

The Winner takes it all

SKYbed has won the Interior Innovation Award 2011, the reddot design award für Produkt Design 2011 and is nominated for the Designpreis Deutschland.

The SKYbed is a relax piece of outdoor furniture that resembles characteristics of a bed and a hammock. It unifies the comfort of a bed with the enjoyable rocking of a hammock. It consists of a fully dismountable stainless steel frame and a 100% weatherproof relax mat. The stainless steel frame flexibly adapts to any uneven floor surfaces without creating tension and therefore damage to the frame. All four suspension bars are individually adjustable in length for individual relax properties. They also allow to level out the relax mat when two persons with different body weights enjoy a rest in the SKYbed.

The intelligent material composition solves the typical dilemma in outdoor furniture. All products of SKYLIVING are made out of highly technical textiles which breathe and are weatherproof. SKYLIVING works with textiles that are not coated and therefore watertight but chose exactly the opposite way. All textiles have an open-cell structure so that water and vapor can easily penetrate the material without being absorbed. Therefore all products can be exposed to the elements all year long.

Interior Innovation Award 2012: Summer on the move – Don’t forget to bring your table

As the sun moves in the sky, we often move with it. That is why the Danish design duo Strand + Hvass has designed a table for Cane-line, which is easy to move from place to place. The tray table “On-the-move” is sturdy, easy to lift and strong enough for outdoor life. It is made of 100 percent aluminium and the powder coating ensures that it can handle all sorts of weather.

A hole in the middle leads rainwater away. The handle makes the table easy to move and the tray can be lifted off for cleaning or use in other places. “On-the-move” is the perfect supplement to other furniture, indoors as well as outdoors. It stands for Danish design tradition where function is just as important as appearance. Good reasons for getting the prestigious Interior Innovation Award 2012. This award appraises to innovations in all product areas of the furnishing sector world-wide and is organized by is the German Design Council.
