Pac-Man inspired chair design concept by Bruno Marques.
Israeli artist Hilla Shamia manages to create a modern/natural art piece made of aluminum and wood that remains functional while still conjuring a wide range of emotional and ideological triggers. These are gorgeous pieces that can not only stand in a gallery, but also in a home as a table or a seat.
The process involves, and this is by no means an in-depth explanation, pouring the extremely hot aluminum into a casting with the wood at the bottom. The goal is to have as little oxygen in that space as possible and then get the aluminum to cool quick enough. The result is charring instead of burning.
These are aesthetically perfect to me. I would love to have a piece sitting in my office.

The Cat Tunnel Couch Is Sure To Cause Arguments Between Cat Lovers And Their Spouses
My lady and I have been eyeing up new sofas lately and decided on an L-shape. You know, something big and spacious for when we want to have company over for movie marathons. Well, at least that was the plan until I showed her this sofa by Korean designer Seungji Mun. It’s perfect because our current couch is already fucked up and our cats are always climbing up underneath it through the back. This thing is basically the same thing, only more design-y and hamster-tube looking.
At first it’s just a regular ol’ sophisticated looking shelf that you’d see in a rich dude’s study in a James Bond flick while dudes smock cigars and swig Scotch. But at the simple press of a remote control button, BLAM!
