There are quite a number of furniture items in GrabCAD's library already and one very nice kitchen food prep table (by Josh Fair) got me thinking how endless the furnishing options would be if everyone could sketch up a drawing, get it custom made and delivered to your door with one mouse click.
As I was looking for some inspiration for my very own never ending bookshelf project, I stumbled upon some stylish and bizarre furniture pieces. If you're into wood and functionality, you might like the highlights.
Dave Pickett is only a student, but his Nook has to be one of the most well-thought versions of a such a simple thing as coffee table.
Similar thing with Karl Marius Sveen and his little table. I'm not sure which is more impressive - the newspaper folder feature or the fact that you can assemble the table with only one screw.
My personal favourite is Olivier Dolle book shelf model 1. I don't think there's any better way to solve the 'all shapes and sizes' problem that you usually have when trying to fit your library into standard square shelves.
On to some crazy and bizarre stuff now. If all above is still too traditional and 'safe', then what about a walking table? The following video is very Theo Jansen inspired, but no less impressive.
Still not thinking about replacing the old sofa with something more edgy and jaw-dropping? The last three minute clip should then be the game changer. Forget aesthetics, robotics will be the future and what could be a better excuse to launch a home renovation project than this incredible fly-eating digital wall clock?
As usual, we'd like to see all your crazy ideas and drawings, too, so share and see what others have come up with. You can never have too many TV tables or kitchen work spaces in our Library.
