Functional Drawing Table With 1800 Sheets Of Paper

Designer Thorsten Francks made this fantastic table called Tischlein for those who like to draw. It’s a creative place for a child or an adult. The table has 1800 sheets of paper of 24 various colors. You can always write or count something if you’re near this small table. The design itself is very simple: it’s a maple table of light color on four thick legs to contain all the paper. It’s a nice sample of modern furniture that combines simple design, functionality and style. If your child likes to draw or you have a friend who is a drawer or a designer – that will be the best gift.

They are available in several forms and colors, you can choose different modifications: with chests or just niches, smaller or bigger, caramel orange, navy blue or any other color.

Thank to a big variety you can choose one that suits exactly your room. Such a piece of furniture will be a great addition to any contemporary living room.

“Cirkel” Coffee Table By Daphna Laurens

The new pieces designed by Daphna Laurens presented in the collection “Cirkel” have a shared basis, the circle. Two dimensional drawings and ideas took shape during the last months in their workshop by modifying this elemental shape. Composing, cutting and twisting the surface, adding or removing lines, applying materials and colour resulted in the design of this new coffee table.

Blurred House by BiLD architecture

Happy Wednesday! Check out this house that is a major renovation and extension to an original 1930’s Californian bungalow in Melbourne’s inner-north. Reacting to the established convention of jarring juxtaposition of existing ‘old’ and introduced ‘new’ architectural elements ; the ‘Blurred House’ offers an alternative proposition; that of a blurring between ‘old’ and ‘new’ to produce a hybrid. Gradually transitioning from the vernacular to the contemporary, the division of architectural elements are deliberately ambiguous, producing a unique formal and visual language.

Viewed from the street, the house appears largely unchanged, with a small clerestory window the only hint of reconfiguration. Both internally and externally; moving through the house, new materials, spatial characters and formal language is progressively introduced. By the time of arrival in the back yard, the house has evolved into a different building; no longer recognizable from its original starting point; an architectural ‘rabbit in a hat’.

Apple Bay House by Parsonson Architects

Happy Tuesday! Check out this holiday house that sits on a west facing hillside in a bush clad bay in the Marlborough Sounds.

The architects intended to create a delicate platform amongst trees for life to unfold. The house is in two parts, each with a fine roof that follows the lie of the land. The upstairs living areas are one large space with decks at each end to enjoy both the morning and afternoon sun. Downstairs bedrooms float amongst the trees with windows opening across the tree tops.
