KNQ Associates scours the net for beautiful objects for the home!
1. Drawing inspiration from the traditional Japanese art of origami, Lauren Rottet turned a flat plane into a table using as few folds as possible. The concealed steel reinforcement ensures that the Fold Table from Decca is much more sturdier, for sure, than a paper crane.
2. Kartell's POL is an innovative sofa bed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. The chrome-steel piece comes with expanded polyurethane backrest and seat for maximum comfort. If you are looking for a stylish solution for a guest convertible bed, this is it. And I bet your guests will be more than happy to stay over.
3. Jean-Marie Massaud's self-proclaimed 'metal nest', the Ad Hoc armchair for Viccarbe, is a beautiful sculptural piece which is completely handmade. A brass frame finished with an epoxy lacquer means it can stay happily outside the house as it can inside.
4. Designed by Martin Kleinhans for Performa, Garderobe's parallel slits can be fitted with as many different hooks and hangers as you might need to hang coats, hats and keys. I love it for its simple clean lines and functionality. The fact that it comes in a plethora of pantone colours sure doesn't hurt too!
5. I’m a sucker for collapsible, multi-functional furniture, I don't know why. You know those things: sliding and foldable panels, flip-down doors etc. Thus, it comes as no surprise that I'm attracted to this Tagei Table by designer Akemi Tanaka. The table slides playfully into a bench for two with end tables to match.
Perfect for small spaces.
