Grade school taught us the basic shapes…. Triangle, Square and Circle; and those dang shapes haven’t really changed a bit in all these many years. Elegant as they are as individuals, their identities converge as this graceful Braun Geometrical Kettle. Depending from which angle you look at it, you can easily identify a distinct triangle, square or circle, seamlessly merging into each other. Clean lines and simplicity make it a hit in my books.

What is this! Only a single bit of wood and a small bit of steel support on the bottom, we’ve got quite a sassy looking little sear here! What designer Scott Jarvie has done is to not only make the single seat cut from wood with almost no waste, but multiple seats can be cut with very little waste from a single large regular sheet of plywood, too!
As you can see from the first picture and a couple others below, the One Cut concept is used primarily on this single regular chair, but below, you can see the idea implemented on several different forms.
It’s a whole potential family!
The seat provides a nice surface to sit, lumbar support, and a rather wild form to look at. Very pretty!
Very ergonomic.
Designer: Scott Jarvie

The Gaudi Stool gets its name from the architectural influences of the Gothic Designer Antoní
Gaudi
. Like his works, this stool derives its strength from the benefits of beam-grid substructures that support its thin carbon fiber shell. Rapid-prototyping techniques employed in its manufacture ensures that the cost of production stays minimum, thus making it a viable project. Kinda eccentric-style to say the least; I quite like the black carbon finish it gleams with.
The ‘Gaudi-chair’ is currently being developed in cooperation with Dutch research institute TNO.
