Front Design Group Uses Their Own Doodles For A New Sofa Design for Moroso.

The new Doodle Sofa from Moroso was born out of a habit that many of us have- designers in particular. Created by the Swedish design group Front, all three members (Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren) used doodles they had made during design meetings to create the sofa's pattern.

The name Doodle embodies the spirit of the new sofa for the modern italian furniture brand. Lines drawn distractedly on a sheet of paper, like doodles, become the decoration of the covers which are then embroidered and laid over the frame like a folded blanket.

The shape of the sofa is that of a folded semicircle whose ends become armrests naturally incorporated in the frame.

Front Design says:
"We doodle absent mindedly - doodling is a kind of half-conscious creative work. It is both a distraction, and also thought to help you concentrate on whatever you are doing at the same time.

The decoration is a kind of by-product of Front's creative process, inscribed onto the folded half circle of the sofa's form.


A Footstool, Armchair and Blanket In One. The Collerette From Casamania.

The "Collerette" designed by Céline Merhand and Anais Morel of Les M Studio (the same women who brought us the Cocon duvet lounge chair) for Casamania is a footrest and a comfortable seat around which is a rolled blanket. Once its "collar" is unrolled, the users can wrap themselves up in the integrated blanket, giving them a cozy comfotable seating experience.

Blanket size: 180x145 cm, 180x175 cm


Furniture Made from Reindeer Parts (apologies to Rudolph).

The "A Part from Reindeer" collection by Thailand's Anon Pairot Design Studio are unique furniture designs which incorporate the body parts from reindeer. No, real reindeer were not killed for this project, but instead fiberglass casts of reindeer parts were painted either antique gold or black and made into the limited collection of benches and seats, which are available for purchase.

The Animal Chair collection by Maximo Riero consists of a diverse range of species; an octopus, a whale, a rhino, a walrus, a lion and even a beetle. Each unique chair is faithful to the animal's image and yet has incorporated traditional tufted seating in its appearance. Thus far Maximo has completed three of his intended collection, the first being an Octopus, followed by a Rhinoceros and a Walrus. A Lion, a Beetle and a Whale are the next three to come.

From Flat To Flux. A Modern Folding Chair.

It's hard to find a lot of nice options in modern design when it comes to folding chairs. Enter the Flux Chair, a stylish foldable design lounger made of polypropylene. As a matter of fact, the Flux was awarded the UK's Grand Designs Product of the Year Award in 2011.

The Flux Chair transforms from a flat package with a built-in handle into a modern looking chair and back again in minutes. Available in eight different colors, the chair has seating pads especially designed for it available in four colors making varied combinations and looks possible.

The chair looks stylish, is durable, easy to clean and care for and is at home indoors or out.

A short history of flexible design :
Over the course of history, from the age of the Egyptians up to that of Napoleon, a folding chair has always been seen as an object of status and beauty. In recent times this focus has shifted. This is a pity; especially in today’s world the concept of folding has so much to offer!

above: Flux founder Douwe Jacobs and industrial designer Tom Schouten

"A folding chair not only saves valuable floor space and makes moving a breeze, more importantly it allows you to sit down wherever you like. The beach, the park, you name it! Add to that the fact that it’s easy to send by mail, and thus drastically reducing CO2 emissions when transported efficiently in bulk, and you can see why in a modern world foldable furniture is as relevant as it ever was.

Keeping this in mind and being inspired by folded paper sculptures, I folded a tiny, elegant, paper scale model of a chair. Even though it was just a simple cut-out from a single sheet of paper, it was surprisingly strong. And even better: it didn’t look like anything I’d ever seen before!

Early 2009, I and fellow industrial designer Tom Schouten founded our company. We called it Flux, referring to change and the words flexible and luxury. Since then, we have put all our energy into turning this small paper model into our first fully-fledged flexible design: the Flux Chair.

Our goal is to create a new generation of furniture and associated living items; so stay tuned for more flexible designs from Flux!" -- Douwe Jacobs, Founder/Inventor of Flux
