Stacking vessel. How wonderful!!!


Kuli is a simple piece of furniture designed to be a seating object, a coffee table, or a storage and display unit, it requires the user to 'build' it themselves according to what kind of furniture is needed.
Comprised of a steel wire basket with a board on top, the wire box can be filled with beanbag-style cushions in several different sizes to layer like sandbags if you need a seat. By fixing them with rubber ropes hooked into the grid, they stay put. Joining two easy chairs gets you a bed or a cosy sofa, and when the pillows are put away, the arm chair turns into a table.
Without the cushions, Kuli would be pretty handy in a children's room to function as an arts and crafts table and a toy box; and for grown-ups, it's also at home in the living room for putting coffees on and storing books underneath.

Kuli is produced by small high quality workshops in south Germany. It is made out of steel wire, rubber ropes and high quality fabrics from Kvadrat ©.

Collection of light

Collection of Light by Stockholm-based design firm humans since 1982 is a collection of LEDs that make a lamp. Inspired by museum-style collections of insects, each lamp is made up of 90-300 LEDs. There are three versions: a limited edition of three with 300 LEDs, an edition of 10 with 150 LEDs, and an edition of 10 with 90.

The box house

This gorgeous loft located in Florence, Italy, used to be a carpenter’s workshop. Using more than 300 old wooden voting urn boxes, architect Alessandro Capellaro remodeled this “box house” with a mix of vintage furniture, bold colors and unique objects. Gorgeous wood patina and ingenious designs using old wood pieces to create furniture give this loft a true unique soul. Magnifique!
