Stephanie Jasny; CORDULA Lamp

Resembling an extension lead of sorts, CORDULA portable floor lamp was inspired by objects found on construction sites. Designed as part of Stephanie Jasny’s graduation project, it has since gone on to be selected by Ligne Roset for their collection and feature as part of the International Design Museum Munich. Big accolades for this clever light combining the characteristics of a cable drum and spotlight.

Greg Papove; Foundation

We featured Greg Papove’s Socks and Furniture in August, and once again he’s using unlikely objects to create eye-catching pieces. When not in use, Foundation looks simply like a block of concrete (albeit a very lovely bit of concrete). It’s much more than that though. With space to cradle a laptop, hard drive and mobile phone; not only is it a very functional slab of lovely concrete, but the material cleverly helps to keep the gadgetry cool too.

LA Design Studio; Armchair & Sofa 427

Sofa and Armchair 427 are seats made from fine leather and real car parts. Available in two different versions – Road and Race – the former is the most precisely created automotive furniture you can buy, whilst the latter uses leather from the likes of Ferrari, Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Part of the 427 collection which also comprises lamps, desks and tables, these striking pieces have to be the ultimate boys toy?

Jon Burgerman; Doodle Set

Jon Burgerman is a multidisciplinarian – making art, murals, shows and doodling – who aims to distract, enlighten and delight those who choose to tune in. Despite his stupendous large-scale pieces, we like this smaller (in size though, by no means in impact) 5-piece Doodle Crockery Set. Bright, colourful and fun, it contains a porcelain tea pot, small & large porcelain plate, porcelain bowl and fine bone china collectable mug…

Izhar Gafni; Cardboard Bicycle

Israeli inventor Izhar Gafni, has developed a rather unlikely mode of transport in the form of a cardboard bike. By folding over the sheets of material – and inturn increasing its strength – The Alfa (as it’s called) can hold a rider up to 24 times its weight. Gafni claims the machine is durable and waterproof and everything, apart from the brakes and chain, is made from cardboard…
