Intriguing and unusual, the Volt table, designed by the Dutch artist, Reinier de Jong, is really something to remember. Ok, here’s a yellow table. So, what?! Well, the details make it look particularly odd and fun. Volt is entirely made of plywood and it looks like a fluid piece of furniture. The legs seem integrated in the table top. Definitely, this is one of the items that fit those who love unusual design elements sprinkled around their homes. What really grabbed our attention were the legs, which have a triangular shape and the playful geometric-like appearance.
Volt is both minimal and dynamic. The colour can be easily chosen, depending on your tastes. It is not necessary to be yellow. Moreover, it is extremely practical, being wide enough to make room for six chairs. You can place it in the kitchen (it will look funky and it will add a glimpse of fun to the environment) or even outside, on the terrace. The Rotterdam designer said that Volt is “a table with a form that seems impossible like an Escher drawing. It continues to fascinate due to its elusive appearance.”
The Componibili Storage Unit was designed in 1968 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Kartell. A design classic, it is on show at New York’s MoMA and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Functional, adaptable and smart, this hard-wearing and versatile unit has many uses around the home. Componibili units are stackable, available in round and square versions, varied sizes and several colors.
Bet you never expected this! Another example featured on Giddy Upcycled shows an armoire transformed into a big, beautiful birdcage for live birds. Of course, the glass is replaced again with more appropriate cage-like netting. Neat idea if you want to show off your feathery friends in style.
