We’ve seen various replicas of the iconic Eames chair on our site and we even featured a post with 30 eye-catching interiors on how to cleverly adapt it to a modern interior design scheme. Today we would like to change the approach a bit and show you a new interpretation of the lounge chair and ottoman. Currently available at Shapeways for $25, this miniature 1:20 version of the mid-century sensation is perfect for design enthusiasts. The classic furniture piece is brought to life with 3D color printing and comes in four different sizes.
Discovered on Architizer, the version in the photos below (1:20) is about 2 inches tall and a cool little object for desks or offices, “an awesome source of inspiration or a great gift for a designer friend“. We enjoy the idea of 3D printing, especially when it comes to collectable items. How do you find this miniature Eames chair?
The String shelf system was designed in 1949 by the swedish architect and designer Nils Strinning. Easy to assemble and reposition, this well-formed system, with its ingenious design, is stable and functional. String® is available in several formats: the classic system, plex (launched in 1953), pocket (2005) and works (2014). The SH05 Arie shelf was designed by Arik Levy in 2008 for E15. The clever design enables a multitude of seamless combinations, made possible without any obvious visual repetition. Arie functions well as a bookcase, room divider, sideboard or storage unit.
You can never have enough storage in the kitchen. If you lack cabinet space but have just enough room along an area of a wall, an armoire can serve as a wonderful pantry. Check out this great example from Decoholic. Alternatively, you could use the same idea as above, but for coffee instead. Ever Evolving Life 4-5 shows the complete transformation this armoire went through to become a cute little coffee bar.
