Chris&Ruby – Product and Interior Design

0 false 18 pt 18 pt 0 0 false false false Chris&Ruby is a young design team from Berlin working in product and interior design. Their self initiated projects deal mainly with furniture, lighting and living accessories, while their contract based work cover a much wider field. I am in love with pretty much all of their products and furniture designs. Simple and functional, modern and well-designed…these is a very inspiring company to me. The company was founded in 2008 by Ruby Piterek and Christoph Maennchen, after they met at the University of Arts Berlin, where they both graduated in Industrial Design. Go visit their site for more of their amazing projects HERE!

Tension, Please! is a set of two chairs (one with and one without armrest), the design is highly economical and ecological as it is assembled from one piece of plastic board and spanned into its shape by joining the two connecting points.

Dirk Wynants Furniture

One of my biggest fascination in design is furniture design and the designs by Dirk Wynants are so simple, functional and so well designed…The Gargantua has adjustable benches that can be changed in height depending on social or family circumstance: for adults, children or as an extension of the table top. Seating for 8 and place for up to 12 people. If one bench is removed, people in wheelchairs can also join the table.  See more of his designs here!

kawamura-ganjavian’s Binpan

I discovered the BINPAN a while ago and since both Jim and I share a love for simple, functional and well-designed products, especially the ones that make our daily lives just a bit easier, I simply had to share…BINPAN is a dustbin when it stands up, and a dustpan when it lies down; a very convenient hybrid for office and domestic environments. Created by the design and architecture studio Kawamura-ganjavian, which was established in 2000 by Key Portilla-Kawamura and Ali Ganjavian…they are located in Madrid…click here to find out more about them and to see more of their work!

Dyson Air Multiplier

Although this was announced a few months back, we still can’t get enough of the Dyson Air Multiplier, a new blade-less fan that uses the same concept as a jet engine to draw air in…It may cost around $300 but it looks incredible and would make a great conversation piece. Dyson himself explains in the video below:

The Ping Hoodie

Imagine wearing a hoodie that would allow you to connect to your favorite social-networking sites, wirelessly from anywhere…Designer Jennifer Darmour has created just that. Her concept for the Ping hoodie/jacket has built-in technology that allows the user to move, twist, bend, and swing to perform simple tasks like updating and connecting with friends. Check out more of her amazing visions at her blog, here.

The Wooden Mirror

This is an oldie but a goodie…The Wooden Mirror by Daniel Rozin. This series of small wooden pixels responds to the grayscale image of whatever is standing in front of it. By lighting it from above the values are created by the amount of light that is hitting a certain pixel. Amazing stuff, plus we found a video of Rozin explaining the creation…enjoy.
