Mesa comedor expandible

This expanding dining table comes from Seefelder and is named Janus. In Roman mythology, Janus was a god that is often depicted with two faces. This is a fitting name for the product due to its expanding capability. Unlike many dining tables that use additional leaves, Janus can become twice the length that it is in its smaller state. When it is small there is actually an entire other section underneath the table top. With a patented mechanism it can be unlocked to reveal the additional section. Janus was created by Swiss designers Lucius Huber and Florian Steiger. Buy the product: here. . Fuente  Read More →

Farmacia Conde Lumiares

Las fotografías no engañan: la farmacia Conde Lumiares no se atiene a lo que entendemos por una botica tradicional. No siempre fue así; el antiguo local tenía un falso techo que recorría todo el espacio, y lo reducía a la mitad. Las consecuencias son fáciles de deducir: ausencia de luz, sensación de ahogo, poca presencia del escaparate desde la calle… Imposible pensar ahora que alguna vez esta farmacia tuvo problemas de espacio. Los antiguos 2 metros de altura se han convertido en 5. El servicio al cliente es el gran beneficiado: se ha ampliado la zona de atención personalizada; una...

Strong Flat Pack Prefabs for Haiti?

According to the Miami Herald, architect Andrés Duany has created a temporary house — referred to as the “core-house” — that can be made of a strong, composite material and flat pack shipped to Haiti.  The prefab houses sleep eight, if arranged with the bunk beds, and can expand with additional core units.  Duany believes they could be built affordably in order to provide a temporary shelter from the elements and rain. Each temporary core house is only 8’2″ x 8’2″ x 19’8″, although when shipped it would only be a few inches thick. ...

Stark desvela dos turbinas eólicas que darán que hablar

A couple years ago, I watched with caution as Philippe Starck announced plans to design residential scale vertical axis wind turbines.  Everyone loves the idea of small wind — especially VAWT designs — but practical issues can sometimes preclude actual energy generation with these things.  Nonetheless, after two years of research, it seems the French designer has some actual products to speak about.  Speaking to a crowd in Milan, Starck unveiled two Revolution Air turbine models to be made by Pramac. The twin-blade WT400W (above left) is rated at 400 W and is expected to cost...

Amazing Rounded House Design in Australia

The Mobeius house was created by Tony Owen Partners in Sydney, Australia. The amazing rounded house design was the concept of the client with the intention of maximizing light and developing a concept a bit different than the standard “90 degree right angles” found in most homes. As a result almost everything is custom in the home including the windows, frame and roof. The frame is created of steel that had to be specially cut to create the rounded look. Once the frame was up the rest of the features could be built and fastened to ensure the proper shape was kept throughout the house...
