Ny Rocking Chair

July 3, 2008

Design Within Reach carries the Ny Rocking Chair and Ottoman  which was designed by Takeshi Nii in 1958, after he was inspired by an ad for a director’s chair in an archival magazine from the 1930s. At only 14.5 lbs, the Ny folds into a compact 5.5″ form that can stand on its own discreetly in the corner, or be easily picked up and moved wherever an extra lounge chair needed.

Nautic Folding Seat

I have an entry where you’d like something to sit down on to take off your shoes and what not but it’s not wide enough to put anything. I recently saw this Nautic Folding Seat and thought it would be perfect.

I just ran across Akemi Tanaka’s designs after seeing her cat bed on apartmenttherapy.

Bunk Wall Bed

April 3, 2008

The Literal range of wall beds, designed by Lievore-Altherr-Molina, have a clean and uncluttered contemporary design. They are fitted with gas pistons for closing the bunks flat against the wall. They can be fitted with side panels to hide the beds when in the folded position but I’m rather fond of the beds left open without the side panels.
