"Because no modern home is complete without at least one lamp that looks like a laundry detergent bottle on a stool."
"Yes, I do have the time, just give me a minute to puzzle it out."
"This long, steel door pull really gives you maximum leverage against the two screws holding it in place."
"As rendered, no, the car does not fit in the back. But renderings are just about, you know, the vibe."
"I found a clever way to use twice as much metal without conveying any benefit to the end user."
If I lived with a roommate who had this chair, I'd never not be hanging my dirty socks on those bars.
"I'm pretty good at drawing circles in CAD, but I haven't figured out how to get other shapes yet."
"Most shelf brackets can accommodate a variety of board widths. Using the power of design, I have removed that versatility."
"I wanted it to occupy the footprint of a loveseat, while only offering accommodation for one person. It is a metaphor for loveless marriages."
"Over time, using these chairs may put some wear on the steel edges. If that happens, call me and I'll swing by with an angle grinder to resharpen them."
>> "I found a clever way to use twice as much metal without conveying any benefit to the end user."To me this actually looks like a clever way to re-purpose off cuts from rectangular steel tubing (say, if you were welding up a really beefy frame and had a few inches left over) into drawer pulls without needing any extra hardware. But I love these design roasts and don't want to ruin the fun :D
Dammit Jason, I think you're right about the tubing. It's a matter of time before these things blow up in my face anyway, so I'll try to pump out as many as I can before it gets shut down.
Also as a parent who has to pull a screwdriver out all the time to tighten loose handles I really like the fact that this design doesn't require screws.
Actually, I like that door pull. Pretty neat.
As a Door Hardware Designer, I appreciate this post.
top shelf stuff Rain! :-)
That helicopter would be perfect in an animated feature, where wind and the elements are not an issue.
For a second, I thought you were going to roast me!
I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
