Bob chair

Bob chair

I can’t quite put my finger on what it is about Bob chair, by Hella Jongerius, that compels me to blog about it.

A reinterpretation of the typical wide garden club chair, Bob is formed upon a two-part aluminium frame, dark and sturdy looking at the front but elegant and light at the back. The seating is formed from soft, well padded ribs which are accented with visible stitching and wound yarn is used for the detailing of the armrests.

Pretty it ain’t, looking every bit like a mis-matched random collection of contradictions, but I love it.

My favourite has got to be the gun-metal version with matt grey face and tan leather strap, shown above.

Revive Smartphone

The Revive Smartphone concept, created by Bristol based designers Kinneir Dufort, has been developed with re-manufacturing, re-use and recycling in mind.

The phone is designed for easy dis-assembly allowing it to be recycled easily or upgraded through replacing different components. Coupled with simple software upgrades and a membership system that rewards users for keeping their phones longer, users can continue to repair their phone rather than throw it out and buy a new one.

The user interface, by Duncan Shotton, with it’s cute ‘n’ colourful animated characters, is also designed to encourage a long lifespan, by creating a relationship with the user, further reinforced by the phone’s brown leather backside, which wears gracefully with age, it’s patina helping to develop a sentimental attachment with the device.

CSD Architecten house

Loving the raw, natural and untreated surfaces that feature in the house owned by two of the partners of CSD Archtecten. Unfortunately, however, that ain’t a very child-friendly staircase!
