Adrien Rovero Gives Salvaged Ski Gondolas a Second Life as Unique Rocking Chairs

Comments Off on Adrien Rovero Gives Salvaged Ski Gondolas a Second Life as Unique Rocking Chairs

These stylish rocking chairs are crafted from salvaged ski gondolas by Adrien Rovero . The chairs, dubbed ‘Rock’, are part of a larger project organized by Mountain Climbers , a group which combines sustainable design with charitable efforts. Each of the rockers is crafted from a gondola lift and then decorated by a different artist, architect or designer to create an thoroughly unique work. After the ski gondola chairs are exhibited around Switzerland, the cool designs will be sold at an auction from which all the proceeds will be donated to Make-A-Wish Foundation. The team aim to continue the project over the next three years, so we can expect a whole lot more dismantled ski icons to be transformed into fantastic designs. + Adrien Rovero + Mountain Climbers Images courtesy of Annik Wetter

Elodie Elsenberger’s Land(e)scape Desk Swaps Screws and Glue For Cable

Comments Off on Elodie Elsenberger’s Land(e)scape Desk Swaps Screws and Glue For Cable

Design student  Elodie Elsenberger ‘s Land(e)scape Desk shuns screws and glue in favor of a single length of electrical cord to create a versatile work space. The desk is Elodie’s second-year thesis project at the ESAD art and design school in Reims, France, and it appears to have been inspired aesthetically by geographical forms. According to Elodie’s product description, “The electrical cord is woven through the wood, creating the different micro-spaces. The desk uses no screws or glue, only the cord.” Judging by the accompanying images, the cord is not just a design conceit either; one of the micro-spaces forms a functional desk lamp with a bulb hanging from the top of a little cage. + Elodie Elsenberger Via Design Milk  Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “green furniture” , design for disassembly , desk design , elodie elsenberger , green design , green interiors , landescape desk , no screws no glue , sustainable design , sustainable furnishings , work space , workspace

DEDODESIGN’s New Contemporary Art Museum in Buenos Aires Maximizes Public Space

Comments Off on DEDODESIGN’s New Contemporary Art Museum in Buenos Aires Maximizes Public Space

When designing a new Contemporary Art Museum for Buenos Aires ‘ Puerto Madero district, Shanghai-based architecture firm DEDODESIGN chose to depart from the classical architecture commonly found in the Argentine capital. Instead, the firm developed plans for a highly modern building that creates “a new spatial experience within the urban context,” according to the architects. Because of its tiny footprint, the building covers just 7 percent of the site, leaving more than 30,000 square feet of space open for a public plaza. The architects believe that the layout of the building and the surrounding plaza will enable visitors to experience the waterfront in new and interesting ways. + DEDODESIGN The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
