The Workbed by Mira Schröder, exhibition designer for experimental design group BLESS. Mira created a unique furniture piece – a piece of furniture that flips from spacious desk into an instant bed. The Workbed’s mattress is unveiled by a rotating mechanism. Sheets are specially designed to latch to the underside of the table when it is turned upside down. It’s a perfect solution for small, urban living, it’s also ideal for offering nap options in a work setting. Work and then if you need – just take a nap after transforming the desk into the bed – it’s easy and comfortable! (text via digsdigs.com)

Meet ‘Ike’ and ‘Stella’ two sculptural wood tables by woodworking and furniture design student Nucharin Wangphongsawasd from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Ike is an ash Hallway table inspired by repetitive pattern construct by using the mixing between hardwood and wooden strips to represent a progression in form start from solid close space to open space which provide light and airy feeling for the overall table.
Stella is an ash and wanut side table inspired by repetitive pattern construct by using the mixing between hardwood and wooden strips with technique using wedge to create tension between each strip for creating a structure which start from solid close space to open space. (via design-milk)

A transformation of an exterior wall in a small house outside Sao Paolo, by Rosenbaum architects. The wall has changed into a small vertical garden where a series of cascading plastic bottles are hanging from strings. The plastic containers have been reused as planters filled with soil for different kinds of flowers, and medicinal herbs.

Growth Table is one of a series of objects and spaces modified from a variety of familiar types to sponsor specific activities for adults as well as children. It creates an instant and intergenerational community united by the simple act of drawing.
Children impulsively and un-selfconsciously indulge in spontaneous mark-making when presented with a place to sit, a rightly-positioned surface, and colorful instruments with which to draw. The Growth Table creates these conditions – but at a range of scales – to also attract older children and adults who share the memory of countless hours of childhood art-making. The structure activates a public outdoor or indoor space by providing a catalyst for spontaneous social behavior that is both exceptional and utterly familiar. When the form of the Table is multiplied or expanded, it creates a community scaled art-parklett, or transforms a public interior into a literal “drawing room.”
