Stylex is an office furniture manufacturer located in Delanco, NJ. Stylex is currently looking for a CNC programmer to implement the use of a newly acquired Lectra fabric cutting machine into our production process.
About 65 years ago, my father bought six Made in USA, modern, Paul McCobb dining chairs and a glass-topped table to go with them. The table ended up with my cousin many years ago, and I've had the chairs for over twenty years. The chairs are light and strong, but
The issue with the design of most stacking chairs is that, when stacked, they look like this: That is to say, each stacked chair nests slightly forward of the one beneath it. That's fine for homes or offices that only require a half-dozen of these. But for institutions and convention
I like tables. Dining tables, side tables, hall tables, you name it, I like it. I have a folder on my computer that I keep images of pieces I would like to make or that inspire me in some way. I was looking through it last night, only to discover that 80% of what was in there is some form of table.
While we all know it looks nice, an open floor plan office can destroy productivity and creativity. But once you've invested in that mega modern wall-free loft office, you have to make the best of it. The AK2 Workspace Divider Lamp was designed by Uli Budde and Ivan Kasner for
(Note: You'll see a shocking photo here of this thing called a tablesaw, which I used to use before switching over to hand tools. This old lesson here is important regardless of whether you use power or hand tools.) I am adding a French foot to a Hepplewhite bookcase that
Every night Manhattan's sidewalks are lined with garbage waiting for pick-up. The most common piece of furniture you'll see curbside are adjustable office chairs, the cheapie kind you get at a Staples or an Office Maxx for $100 or less. (This isn't limited to my neighborhood; I overheard Jimmy DiResta,
Here's a dream commission for a music-loving furniture designer: Create a chair whose sole purpose is to be sat in while listening to music. To complement the launch of SUB, their new subwoofer, stereo manufacturer Sonos commissioned Danish handmade furniture workshop, KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri, with the assignment. KBH came up
Re-designed for a shop and maker environment, Milder Office Inc.'s Maker Series offers a robust reboot of the Milder Furniture System and includes butcher block tables, mobile pedestals, tool carts, and oversized mobile storage partitions. The work tables boast a 1.5" thick maple butcher block top that can take all the abuse, as well as the love, from clamps, to fabric patterns and laptops. The tables can be easily moved or ganged to support a variety of studio and classroom activities.
Here's a brilliant way to create something new out of something old, from British designer/builder Rupert Herring. Herring took an old, staid dining table from the 1930s and broke it down into its constituent parts: He then cut the oak tabletop into strips, and rearranged and relaminated them together to
"A more domestic, more human aesthetic," says Tom Dixon, "is fast becoming the required backdrop for the newly blurred distinctions between work, home and entertainment spaces." To that end he's designed a new line of office furniture and products. But while the word "office" may conjure up images of staid
When Nissan showed off their "self-parking office chair" earlier this year, it seemed it was a gag. But now the company is actively pursuing self-driving furniture, with an initial application so quirky it could only come from Japan. Their ProPILOT Chair, as they call it, is intended to ease queue-waiting
I needed a new desk chair–my old one was a bit...uncomfortable. I don't like buying new chairs because there are already enough of them in the world. Sometimes it's a matter of tweaking an object that already exists to make it fit your needs. My main goal was to make
Years ago, I saw a 1920s Ruhlmann Macassar Ebony bedroom set, similar to what you see here, at a furniture auction at Christie's. It had belonged to some Paris "bachelor," this big double bed with a tigerskin throw on it, flanked by matching nightstands and armoire, and the headboard was
This is for those of you interested in learning to design and build furniture. Woodcraft's "California Dreaming" sweepstakes comes with a doozy of a grand prize: A $3,000 SawStop table saw, $1,000 in tools and accessories, and a slot in a three-day training session with Jory Brigham. (We previously featured
Layer's Pair Chair designed for Fritz Hansen is a modular system of polymer, steel and plywood seating components with over 8,000 possible combinations, offering a product adaptable to any interior environment or specification. Layer is the first British design agency to launch a product with the renowned Danish furniture brand.
Japanese design studio nendo has taken their exhibit comprised of 50 manga comic inspired chairs across the pond from Milan to New York. The stainless steel chairs are currently on display at Friedman Benda in the Chelsea gallery district, accompanied by a graphic light installation.
I don't consider myself much of a designer, I'm more a student of history. I look at a lot of furniture and I stopped buying "how to" woodworking books years ago in favor of coffee table books and museum collection books filled with images of furniture from every style. This
A couple of posts ago I wrote about Playatech furniture, which is made of interlocking sheets of plywood. Now here's another approach to simple furniture that is tons of fun to make. We recently added this book, Ridiculously Simple Furniture Projects, to our catalog. The projects in it live up
As with NYC's ICFF and Milan's Salone del Mobile, the tentpole events of London Design Festival are predominantly trade-facing affairs. Whereaas 100% Design caters to interior designers and architects, designjunction balances contract with the indie, up-and-comer spirit of Shoreditch. Meanwhile, the nooks and crannies of South Kensington — known as
This is a project whose concept is meritorious enough to look at, but problematic enough that we should talk about it. Deskbloks are a system of technology-embedded oak squares which end users are meant to assemble together into a desk. There are five varieties of these blocks, as seen below:
We were blown away when we first saw Bruce Shapiro's incredible sand-drawing machines, which use hidden magnets and a steel ball to "draw." Originally designed as art installations, Shapiro is now offering them for sale as tables on Kickstarter. Imagine seeing this every day in your own home: Shapiro's offering
Aside from the inaugural biennale at the Somerset House, the 14th edition of London Design Festival felt like business as usual. Indeed, the introductory text to the official guide to LDF2016 only makes a passing mention of the Brexit. Similarly, only one exhibition in East London explicitly addressed the results
With the evolution of mobile devices and power needs, our home environments have become increasingly cluttered. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the bedroom, however modern furniture solutions have stayed stagnant. Canopy table by Ink Studios was designed with a layered storage approach that separates essential devices from general storage. A single hollow post provides essential-item structure while also facilitating power needs. The Canopy table provides iconic style while complimenting a
Arguably the most minimal booth in the entirety of designjunction was tucked away in an unassuming corner of the Cubitt House exhibition hall. A shelf, mounted on a wall at eye-level to emphasize its drawing-like simplicity; another beside it, and a darker variation on the floor below. Upon closer inspection:
I finished a bed recently for my guest room. I'm really happy with the build but now more than ever I really hate the flanking Lingerie chests that my wife and I bought decades ago. Truthfully I didn't much care for them when we bought them but this was before
Even the most digitally-focused clients I've worked with want something other than just a laptop close at hand when working at their desks, and they struggle a bit when using a desk with no storage space. So I'm always interested in seeing the many ways designers have incorporated storage into
A lot of the chemicals we use in woodworking, especially in finishing, are toxic. Now there is toxic and TOXIC. There is long term exposure toxicity and one-whiff-drop-dead toxicity. If you want to work safely, you need to know. Not only do woodworkers need to know, everyone needs to know.
Milder Office Inc.'s mobile Tool Cart includes sliding wire baskets for tool storage that are easily removed and swapped; keep ready made tool 'kits' in the wire baskets to suit different classes and processes. Load it up and easily move from station to station as you work. Lock it up and take a well deserved break.
For those who do desktop crafts, the WorkBox is a made-in-the-U.S.A storage unit and workstation that folds in on itself and hides everything away when not in use. Take a look: The design of the storage units is undeniably intelligent. But after watching the video, I teetered back and forth
Anna Lindgren and Sofia Lagerkvist are the design duo behind Front, the Stockholm-based Swedish design group. The fresh, innovative work they do makes it hard to click away from their portfolio. Check out, for instance, this clever coatrack they did for Materia: Or this beautiful Water Steps faucet for Axor:
Brass and walnut are two great tastes that taste great together. But I've never seen the two materials integrated in such a beautiful way as this: That's the Nola Dining Table by Brooklyn-based Wüd Furniture Design. The description states that the table is constructed from "bronze encased in resin," and
