Chiaro flirts with notions of an archetype to create what seems to be an ordinary design that is comfortable in many different environments. The connections between the parts are direct and uncomplicated, and the structure under the seat evolved from an intention to simplify the joinery while reducing the number of parts. Chiaro comes with and without armrests and both versions stack. The chairs are available naturally finished in oak and ash, as well as in white, gray, red, yellow, blue, and black.
The AGL Table Group is an efficient solution for executive desks, residential dining and conference needs. Both powered and non-powered versions utilize an aluminum base to support table surfaces in stone, veneer or formcoat. When powered, an arrangement of innovative trays mounted beneath the edge of the surface incorporate electrical outlets and enough space to accommodate wires, transformers and tablets; the trays are engineered to smoothly handle tangled cords when opening and closing. The design brings power access into the personal space of the user while preventing clutter on the table surface.
Revolver is a four-legged rotating bar stool. Through the integration of a ball bearing into the lower ring, the foot rest turns together with the seat, creating a surprising yet functional experience. By allowing one's entire body to turn at once Revolver enables what bar stools are best suited for: socializing with friends. Available in 76cm and 65cm seat heights.
A semester-long workshop with 13 graduate 3-D Design students focused on the body's physical relationship with objects to better inform the design process. The project concluded with an exhibition of the student's work at The Javits Center during ICFF 2009.
The DBA Pen is composed of 98% recycled materials and contains a proprietary environmentally responsible ink formula. Produced at a wind-powered facility in the United States, it was designed as an alternative to the wasteful and often toxic pens we use almost every day.
This humidifier projects a cylindrical column of mist from a round vent circling the tank. A glance through the transparent lid reveals the current water level. Should it be low, the tank can be lifted off the base for refilling. An ultrasonic evaporation system provides energy-efficient, cool mist humidification for spaces up to 540 square feet.
These notebooks can be grouped together using the pocket on the cover, making it easy to combine different paper types, (graph, lined, blank,etc.) or to simply add on to an existing diary or sketch book. Made from recycled paper using renewable energy.
A dense concentration of rods useful for holding cutlery and thin glassware fades evenly to a spacing large enough to accommodate bowls, plates and pans. A flexible mesh connects the posts, allowing the structure to be twisted open and rinsed. The excess water drains into a tray beneath, which can be emptied and cleaned.
Two aluminum panels containing high-efficiency conductive elements provide a lightweight heat source. The DBA heater ships flat and can be assembled with minimal effort. During the warmer months, the cord can be spooled around the central handle for easy storage.
