Gorgeous furniture design, Lepke features formable furniture inspired by the magnificent process of butterfly metamorphosis. Designed by David Szabo, the name Lepke means butterfly in Hungarian, it is transformable and designable by users where they can create the perfect table shape for their need. Feel free to decide the characteristic of your coffee table, you can be a designer within certain limits.
Lepke formable furniture is made of wooden slats where each slat is rotatable at the edges of the board. Turn those legs with one simple movement, you can create a unique form of table. First, you can put the table flat on the floor. Grab the last lath of and turn them (other laths move automatically), at the same time you can tighten the screws slowly. You can adjust the table to the required height, once you’re done, you should make the screws strongly tighten.
It’s the new version of Nissa Pivo concept, first shown in 2005, the electric-powered, 360-degree swiveler. Now it’s the Pivo 2. Just the same as the first Pivo, its cabin rotates, eliminating the need for a reverse gear, though its in-wheel motors can propel it in any direction — even sideways. What’s new in the Pivo 2 is its in-car Robotic Agent, a voice-recognition interface (in English or Japanese) to a valet application that can engage in a range of communications from basic vehicle functions to the closest parking space. It looks like a cartoon car, but I really like the design.
THE FUTURE IS ELECTRIC FOR NISSAN
– Pivo 2 concept turns heads and itself in Tokyo –
TOKYO (Oct. 5, 2007)-Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., today unveiled the Pivo 2, an advanced electric concept car that will debut at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show. Pivo 2 builds on the popularity of the first Pivo, shown at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show. Powered by advanced Compact Lithium-ion Batteries and featuring a unique rotating cabin – meaning no reverse gear required – the first Pivo became a cult hit at shows from Beijing to Geneva.
Pivo 2 Concept Car
Reasons to love Pivo 2:
* Electric power from Nissan’s advanced Lithium-ion batteries
* A robotic agent to share every trip
* ‘Revolutionary’ technology with 360 degree turning cabin and 90 degree turning wheels
Pivo 2 takes the idea of an environmentally friendly electric urban commuter vehicle and delivers fun, functionality and a unique relationship between the car and driver. Pivo 2 is powered by advanced Compact Lithium-ion Batteries and employs ‘by-wire’ technologies for braking and steering.
Where the first Pivo, with its fully rotating cabin design, made reversing obsolete, the Pivo 2 takes that easy mobility concept to a new level. Each of the four wheels are powered by Nissan’s advanced electric In-wheel 3D Motor and can turn through 90 degrees to allow Pivo 2 to drive sideways as well as forward.
Thanks to the highly innovative Robotic Agent, you are never alone in the Pivo 2. With conversations possible in Japanese and English, the Robotic Agent has been created to work with Pivo 2 to make every journey less stressful. It provides a unique interface through which to communicate with Pivo 2 on everything from basic vehicle functions through to the nearest available parking.
Pivo 2 will be on display at the Nissan Ginza Gallery in Tokyo, for an exclusive public sneak preview ahead of the Motor Show.
The step chair designed by Seton Spadt, a student at the Philedelphia University is definitely an eye catcher. As per him he was inspired by Wilson Art’s Laminate wherein the steps represents the transformation happened over the the last century or so. The steps indicate the way the company has progressed to be a market leader as it is today thus sitting on this one gets a feeling of being the king of the world! The color combination used for the steps are some of the best sellers that has come from them; overall a suitable visual tribute for one of pioneer firm of the last century.
