Dining Table with Drawers

Regular dining tables are fixed size or extendable but normally only on one or two sides. The idea behind this table is that it’s extendable per seat, so with individual drawers. In non-extended position it can be quite a small table, measuring for example 60cm. With all drawers extended, it can be as much as […]

Hanging Bookshelf

Concept of a bookshelf that’s not free standing on the floor, but hanging on the wall on cables. Anchoring on the wall can be done with so-called hanger plates, used as climbing anchors on indoor walls. As the shelves have to be fixed somehow to prevent cables going outwards and shelves falling down, they have […]

Uneven Customizable Bookshelf

A bookshelf with uneven, customizable, shelves. What happens with a normal bookshelf is that you always have trouble keeping books upright. Books do fall to the side and you have many different size books, just not fitting on one shelf. So you create different shelf heights. Similar books end up on different levels, only because […]

Altering height couch, bed, floor

Bit of a mash-up between a regular floor, a couch, a bed and all you can imagine. The idea behind this is a floor split up in tiles, height altering depending on the function of the floor at that moment. With the flick of a button you could change the floor to a couch, a […]

Personalized Presence Registration

At work we have an Ikea Expedit closet which is quite empty at the moment. Last week we talked about it at lunch and one of the ideas is filling the closet with personal items from the various departments in our office. (ICT, Finance, Customer Contact Centre, etc.) This got me to the idea of […]

Monitor stand with built-in LED light

A monitor stand with LED’s built into it’s legs. (For drawing, writing and computer use.) The LED’s can be colour-changing and be turned to create either a floodlight under the monitor stand or beam on the desk in front. When turned inwards, it’s a mood-light, when turned outwards it’s useable for reading and drawing. If […]

Time based imageframe & clock

A square digital image frame with a (digital) clock. That’s basically what it is. This could be any design, any size. But there’s one thing that’s different in this idea: The image shown, is taken on the exact time and date as the current time. What you see on the frame, is what you could […]

Walltime LED-Clock

A (LED)clock projecting the time on a wall by different light patterns. Time is represented by patterns of light on the wall or ceiling dependent on where the light is mounted. (It can be mounted on the ceiling, floor, top of a cupboard/bookcase and even sideways on the wall. The time is not precise even […]

Wired wireless keyboard & mouse

Concept of a (computer) desk with built-in (USB) charger and “wireless” connectors for keyboard and mouse. The idea behind this is that you don’t have to deal with the hassle of batteries always dying. It’s a bit of a combination between wireless devices connecting via BlueTooth and wired devices connecting via USB.  I want to […]

Turnaround when liked

Three geometrical shapes combined in a chair with a twist. The square and circular bits are put firmly together but it’s the triangle which can pivot around. The sole reason? Just to change the look… Sketch created 29 January & 7th February 2011.

Ball-Framed Chair

Combine a cut-out ball-shape with a wooden or steel frame and there you have it, the Ball-Framed Chair. Quite simple design and the colours are pretty much undefined. The curve in the frame makes the side-view more interesting and the frame DOES have it’s use, it keeps the ball from rolling all over the place. […]

Just a picture of my hand…

There, nothin’ more then a crappy picture of my hand. Because I wanted to break the habit of pretentious furniture design and concepts. Nothin’ more. 🙂

Artminds Connected, Globally

How cool would it be if YOU had control over the artwork displayed in your neigbours home, or that in a strangers home on the other side of the world, of even that displayed for millions in the Tate Modern in London? Full control yet no influence This, in a way to have full control […]

Another Day? Another Painting!

Bored of seeing the same old picture hanging on the wall of your living room every day? Want to be surprised, every morning, what ‘d be you’d see when you’re having breakfast? This just might be for you… Basically it’s just a picture frame, but with several pictures stacked inside. Every night the mechanism comes […]

Fuzzy Bookshelf Clock

A bookshelf, but at the same time a fuzzy clock. It tells you the approximate time by revealing one or more shelves. For example, at 1 ‘o clock only the upper right shelf is revealed, at 6 ‘o clock the lower right 3 and at 11 ‘o clock the upper left 2. Have a look […]
