Wow, Optimistic, that is pretty cool stuff. Do you have your own shop? The toy totes with the rope are clever.

This is my latest work as of yet.

Dang, there's a lot of cool stuff to look at more thoroughly. I've been interested in furniture for a while and seeing work from Core fellows is truly inspiring. Gotta step my game up. Here's some stuff I've done over the past 3 years.

I also had a question about these images since I'm getting ready to put a portfolio together to find a job. Do they seem appropriate?(particularly the one of the kitchen cart and the coffee table in my apartment) :mrgreen:

I really like the coffee table in the 3rd picture. Nice work. How did you make it?

Thanks Ross,
I resawed 8/4 hickory into something around 1/8" strips. I soaked them in wood in the sun for a couple days. Working in the summer is so much nicer, it opens up a shop quite a bit. :P Anyway, after that it was quite a bit of elbow grease, glue and a lot of clamps. It was made in two pieces, and I joined them together and shaped with an angle grinder and rasps and finished it with a coat of tung oil. My friends might note that I'm pleased, yet very unpleased with the result and I'd love to get the opportunity to attempt it again. You'll notice it's not entirely level, hence the coffee table books _underneath_ the coffee table. It was a lot of fun to make.

HI !

‘Chameleon Chair’ surprises every time. Each time the chair is used, the movement causes rotation to reveal a distinct color scheme.
It is a new chair every time, creating different experience through single product. The chair also symbolizes ways of life.
The mundane grays have to be replaced by the hopeful colors and the colors of life change to surprise you every moment.

Here is the new base I worked on for the Airtouch height adjustable table for Details which is a Steelcase company.
We showed it in a few select spaces at Neocon this past year, but will now be available for order.

That's really nice. I've been thinking about height adjustable desks a lot lately.

Thanks Scott! If you want a height adjustable, it's really hard to beat the Airtouch mechanism, once you load it with all your stuff you can dial in the resistance setting of the mechanism and it raises and lowers fluidly and with very little effort. I had no part in designing the mechanism, so I feel no shame in bragging about it.

here's a quick video I found on "the youtube"


I found your blog by the way, very cool. I really liked your take on the Eero Aarnio Best in Show deal!

this was a project in collaboration with porsche design in our 3rd semester.
the aim was to create something for the porsche customers, but it would be going to be build by a place called "lebenshilfe", which is a charity organisation where the work is mainly to provide handicapped people with something to do. So this would serve two purposes, giving those people something to do and raise money for them.

my aim was to create a fold away game table for cards or other games which can still be in a living room after the game is done and be a pleasant add to it also. i tried to combine technic and design in a way that both complement each other and keep everything as easy to build as possible to make it producible for the special workshop.

you can see more of the real project here: http://www.lebensdesign.eu

greetings

Hi all some great designs here.

This is a little something I've been working on lately
Materials are HD foam and plywood. Deceptively strong but probably not suited to people with pets
Tell me your thoughts. Sink or swim?
