Each bead in the necklace is 5 minutes. The whole necklace is one solar day. The orange and red ones represent the whole hours. As the wheel turns, one bead falls off and drops down the string every 5 minutes. To tell the time you count the beads from either the silver bead (midnight) or the golden bead (noon) to the last bead that fell off the wheel.
A simple bookcase that playfully curves and becomes a seat, is a creative design responding to the multifunctional usage of space in today's urban living.
Noted as one of the "ten must sees" at Toronto Interior Design Show 2008, the Toronto based design-duo Fishbol Design Atelier, focuses on inhabitation in transmodern architecture as a base for their design.
The idea of the process deﬁning the ﬁnal shape of the object, is something that has always interested me.
You cannot have total control, the materials are alive and do what they want. I just give them boundaries, against which they can react with freedom, always surprising me. They are my best partners and my source of inspiration.
These vessels are formed through a process called Diffusion Limited Aggregation (DLA) which has been modelled in a virtual environment.
DLA is usually studied as an example of fractal growth processes such as branching, lightning, snowflakes, mineral deposits, and coral. Here, the basic principles have been used to create simulated models of root systems.
The reduced form contains a play of different angles of view, a fine geometric line from in front turns into a flat band of light by changing position. Ceramics as material of the socket or in the form of an enamel loop combines the features of the classic ceramic socket of the first electric bulb with present LED technology. Wood as socket or as band gives the lamp organic warmth.

Our home resembles a living creature in many aspects. It changes constantly as we live our daily lives within it.
Within its walls, hot water pipes and electrical wires wind their way, very much like the nerves and veins inside the human body. The veins carry warm blood, regulating the temperature of the human body.
Aran Rug is handknit, using enormous custom made knitting needles, from the wool of 18 merino sheep.
It is the result of Christien's 'slow design' approach, which traces each item back to the sheep that produced the wool, creating an intimate connection with every stage of the making of a design.
'Here and There' is a collection of traveling objects, which are portable sculptures with function. This first series came after consideration of the commonsense of seating today, introducing unique yet compatible ways for people to engage with a chair.

The log bowl harkens back to traditional lathed wooden bowls, stereotypical of beginner woodworking.
The material choice is important as a general icon of cabins as well as a natural element often associated with the romanticism of the Canadian wilderness.
The use of material in its raw form allows for naturally occurring imperfections.
