wood http://design.org/tags/wood en The Hug Stool: A Mix of Modern and Craft from Emo design http://design.org/blog/hug-stool-mix-modern-and-craft-emo-design <p>Many of <a href="http://www.emo-design.it/" target="Emo">Emo</a>'s projects are ultra-modern and hewn predominantly from glossy plastics and metals. The Italian, industrial design consultancy often works in sports equipment, electronics and modern furnishings. Their recent design project, Hug, shown at the Salone del Mobile, finds an interesting middle ground—the form is smooth and modern but with a distinct sense of craftsmanship created through the uneven and hand-sawed surfaces. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="367" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_10.jpg?1338609003" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="579" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_02.jpg?1338609195" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="744" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_07.jpg?1338609196" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="336" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_06.jpg?1338609196" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="336" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_04.jpg?1338609196" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="336" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_03.jpg?1338609196" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="336" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_05.jpg?1338609196" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="367" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_09.jpg?1338609196" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_01.jpg?1338609196" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="Design, hug, stool" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/06/01/hug_stool_08.jpg?1338609196" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/hug-stool-mix-modern-and-craft-emo-design" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/hug-stool-mix-modern-and-craft-emo-design#comments design furniture home accessories industrial italy wood Sat, 02 Jun 2012 03:56:50 +0000 jessicapatterson 4253 at http://design.org The Naos Pendant Lamp from Alexis Facca http://design.org/blog/naos-pendant-lamp-alexis-facca <p>The original plan for Naos came about as part of the "La Petite invite # Nuits Sonores" contemporary music Festival in Toulouse, France. <a href="http://www.paperdonut.com/" target="Paper Donut">Paper Donut</a> originally designed the pendant as an interlocking paper structure. After seeing great interest in the pendant during and after the festival, Alexis Facca decided to produce the lamp on a larger scale in November of 2010.

He learned the technique at an internship, and the effect was normally used in the restoration of classic and vintage cars, but Rob continued to develop the skill, and now offers his skills for bike enthusiasts.</p> <p><iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/24938567?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0" width="620" height="349" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="412" title="Design, robswoodgrain, bikes" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/07/09/rob_woodbike_01.jpg?1310260812" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/faux-woodgrain-bikes-process-video-and-business-story" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/faux-woodgrain-bikes-process-video-and-business-story#comments Bicycle car design industrial wood Sun, 10 Jul 2011 01:24:26 +0000 jessicapatterson 3061 at http://design.org
