korean jungyou choi and joonsoo kim from studio joon & jung are presenting their ‘rocking on the beach’ chairs at the d3 contest at the imm furniture fair in cologne till sunday. the chairs are made of plastic pipes filled with sand. while using the chair a seashore sound appears.
the contain gallery has teamed up with veltins to make a special design lounge in the city center of cologne. maastricht-based fabian von spreckelsen and lisboa-based mathias witte were responsible for creating a matching interior for the new veltins image which shall point at a younger target group with a sense of style. yesterday they opened the lounge to the visitors of the interior design week in cologne. It is open till sunday from 11am – 11pm. beer is on veltins!
the thing with office chairs is that they mostly look hideous. but this prestigious red dot design award winner manages to pull it off. the ‘silver chair’ designed by architect hedi teherani for Interstuhl. the silver surface reminds me of my bread burner.
