No Frills Design where Form Meets Function by _Fjeldborg Design

No Frills Design where Form Meets Function by Fjeldborg Design

The small Copenhagen-based studio of _Fjeldborg Design has a smart and practical philosophy behind the products they create. Their goal is to create good design without the designer price tag it often comes with. They focus on incorporating the functional elements into the actual structure of a product instead of creating it around a design’s function. For example, the cords and sockets are part of the overall design. Smart, right?

They do all the designing, producing, assembling, and packaging of their products, which not only ensures quality control, but it keeps the costs down for the consumer. I don’t know about you, but I tend to love something even more knowing that it was made and assembled by hand. It makes each piece special and like a true labor of love.

Op Art Style Cardboard Pensamientos Clock by 2y1dea

Op Art Style Cardboard Pensamientos Clock by 2y1dea

Designed and handcrafted in Colombia by 2y1dea, the eco-friendly Pensamientos is a cardboard and paper wall clock with thin, dizzying line patterns on the faces. Each clock name and pattern was inspired by music that comes specifically from the region, which gives each one its own look and personality.

I love how the clock hands almost look like large Popsicle sticks and also how the color pops against the linear maze of lines behind them.

Luc Chair by Lorenz*Kaz for Rossin

The chair, composed of a minimalistic rigid polyurethane shell, distinguished by its unmistakable high back. The wood base version transmits warmth and harmony. The version with the ring, encircling the apparently more rigorous metal base, gives the chair its playful character and craftsmanship. The generous proportions of the Luc lounge chair give freedom of motion, but in the same time defines a personal space, intimate that invites you to relax.
