tumblebyfalkesvatun5

Norwegian designer Falke Svatun designed this stunning minimalist vase, called Tumble. Thanks to its cut-out base, the vase can be perched on the edge of a table, shelf, or windowsill. Aside from its whimsical look, it also saves space. Unless, of course, you have a cat. Then, it will surely live up to its name. Comes in black and white.

I have a soft spot for pegboards and anything that resembles them, so this furniture line fell right into my thumbs up list. The Crisscross system, designed by UK-based designer Sam Wrigley, is a reusable modular furniture for nomads. It’s quick to build, easy to take apart. No tools required. Fabulous. And because it resembles a pegboard, there are endless storage possibilities. You can add hooks to it, hang things on it, display art, and so forth. Comes in four finishes. Check out the video after the break to see how it works.

ori-robotic-furniture

Ori robotic furniture has been developed by MIT Media Lab and Yves Béhar in response to the growing trend of living in a small space and expecting the comforts of a much larger one. This furniture allows you to do just that. Ori is a modular intelligent unit that transforms the space from a living room to a bedroom, home office and so forth. It is achieved by clever folding mechanisms that house all the necessary components for this conversion. Hidden into the bottom of the unit is a comfortable bed that glides in and out. When tucked in, the bed is hidden under a closet, office and couch to maximize space. When activated, the unit slides in and out to become a bedroom or a more generous living room. One side of the unit hosts a full closet, but also hides a desk for a home office; the other side holds a media center for entertaining. Each room can be preset for a specific space, including preferred integrated lighting so that one touch on the physical interface or on the corresponding app will morph the room. Wonderful idea! Check out the animation after the break to see the product in action.
