11- the beautiful game - the prototype

11- the beautiful game - the prototype

The hottest table football prototype was exhibited in the Zona Tortona by '11' - a collaboration of two companies - GRO design and Tim modelmakers. Their opinion is, that many new football stadiums built in recent years have a strong architectural and sculptural beauty, becoming city landmarks in their own right and enhancing the visual landscape of the local environment. They wanted the design of their football table to be equally spectacular and memorable, enriching the interior space where it will be placed.

"When i was little" by "ontwerpduo"

"When i was little" by "ontwerpduo"

"When i was little" by the designers "ontwerpduo" is an inversion of the usual downsacling of adult furniture into children's furniture.
They blew up their dollhouse-interior into real-size. A very poetic idea and must-have for those who celebrate their inner child..

 
Box Chair

Box Chair

Eiry Rock presented 3 interesting chair designs:

- 'Box Chair / Child's Chair', made from 45mm Ash and 12mm MDF, offers seating for both adult and child, whilst also acting as a seat and play surface for a child. This product is a blatant expression of how one form is removed from another leaving a negative space in its absence. This draws the user to question the space and therefore interact with the product on a visual level. 
Box Chair Storage and Pivoting Chair

Box Chair Storage and Pivoting Chair

-'Box Chair Storage', made from 30mm Oak veneered MDF and 15mm laminated MDF, offers seating for both adult and child, whilst also acting as a seat and play surface for a child. It has a wipe clean laminated finish and the internal space provides toy storage, with a hinged lid and lid stay. This product is a blatant expression of how one form is removed from another leaving a negative space in its absence.

-'Pivoting Chair', made from 45mm Ash, displays a larger chair being supported by a scaled down pivoting chair, which rotates at 360 degrees. The smaller chair acts as its missing fourth leg and can be pulled out for seating or tucked away when not in use. Offering seating for both adult and child, on different levels to each other, the smaller chair can also provide a step-up onto the larger chair or act as a foot rest.
