Twin Bench is the Sunlab 2013 contest winner and currently looking for manufacturers to mass produce this fun furniture design. The designer says that twin is a modular bench with a social character. You can construct this bench as traditional one but when you attach curved elements under the legs, you can turn it into a see-saw bench. Each set consists of a long plank, a pair of legs, and rounded bases to turn it into a swinging bench. You can choose to slot the legs into notches which are located at each end or middle, in this way, you can choose to rock the bench right/left or up/down.
So, ever wonder what happens when architects design shoes? United Nude, a footwear brand and a leader in 3D printing, launched a project where 5 worlds leading architects were tasked to explore and design 3D printed ladies high heels, re-inventing the shoes.
The result is pretty amazing, we’re not sure if anyone would wear those shoes, perhaps just for collection. Designed by Zaha Hadid, Flames shoes mimic flickering light of fire, the flame like bands come from the point of heel that rise upwards to gently embrace the foot. From our point of view, these shoes don’t look comfortable, but Zaha Hadid says that the ergonomically optimized foot bed offers comfort and great support, well, anyone who’s bought these shoes can confirm this, please?
