Inspired by children’s constant experimenting – when they either learn how to do or how not to do things – the Time Out Timer Stool was designed to help parents add a twist to those five minute time-outs. Every time the child needs to be punished, the hourglass -shaped Time Out Timer Stool can come in handy – just ask the child to sit on the stool until all the sand has poured down. This Wisteria exclusive product is available in navy or white and can be purchased for $69.00. Although an excellent idea, the Time Out Timer Stool can be expected to be delivered by mid-summer. Although this stool is not a toy and should be used only under adult supervision, the Time Out Timer Stool is practically a decorative item with functional features. Made out of mango wood, the hourglass stool has a vintage design and can hold up to 150 lbs. Each stool is filled with white sand to time approximately five minutes and help you in disciplining your child.
The Stacked system was designed by Julien De Smedt for Muuto. Held together using small clips, Stacked comprises modules of varied sizes that are arranged to create many different storage solutions and set-ups. The 835 Infinito modular bookcase was designed by Franco Albini for Cassina. Comprised of vertical elements, containers with doors or flaps and shelves in two depths, Infinito is an expression of possibilities that are designed to bring order to a space. Randomito from MDF Italia is a single unit hanging bookcase (available in white, orange, sand and green) that can also be turned upside down. Combining units provides a larger configuration with a striking visual impact.
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.
