‘Limits’ coffee table plays with distortion and spatial limits

Comments Off on ‘Limits’ coffee table plays with distortion and spatial limits

Geometric shapes come together to form a smooth design that plays with space and function. Called Limits, the idea is “a compact table that pushes our perception of physical and philosophical boundaries,” states Singaporean designer, Kimberly Koh. Created entirely from wooden flat triangles, the joints have been smoothed over, giving the illusion of weightlessness and a sleek composition. Tapered joints and contrasting wood tones maintain the contrast between the various triangular planes, which therefore appear independent from one another. The absence of any vertical edges distorts the sense of perspective, thus distorting the ‘spatial limits’ of the table. The projecting, cantilevered design establishes a sense of imbalance, which suggests that the center of gravity will shift when items are placed on top of it. The middle compartment is removable, creating a more flexible design for users, who can mold the table to suit their creative and practical needs. + Florence Institute The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Help the Homes for Homeless Youth Kickstarter Campaign

Although most of us are privileged enough to have roofs over our heads, and close friends and family members to support us, this is far from the case for thousands of young Australians who are currently homeless . It’s estimated that over 40,000 young people find themselves without a home every night, and many of them have fled abusive home environments. Andrew Milward-Bason and Greg Pitts, directors of Melbourne-based architecture and design studio, Urban Creative , are lending their skills to support  a program that’s endeavouring to create light-filled, welcoming environments across Australia in which homeless youth can be sheltered and nurtured .  Each home will be bespoke-designed to house 4 youths and 2 live-in carers, and these homes will be arranged in clusters of 4, distributed around a local community for further support. This endeavor is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter , so please help to spread the word! + Homes for Homeless Youth Kickstarter + Urban Creative Studio Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Berkeley Becomes First U.S. City to Approve a Tax on Soft Drinks

Voters in Berkeley, California passed a historical measure earlier this week when they voted in favor of the first-ever soda tax in America, which will see sugary soft drinks taxed in response to their reputation for being high in calories and bad for your health. According to Forbes , Measure D , as it’s known locally, will levy a one cent per ounce tax on all sugar-sweetened beverages and flavored drinks, bumping the average price of a can of soda in Berkeley up by a total of 12 cents – and a two liter bottle up by 68 cents.
