LED1 from Tunto

Winner of a 2009 Red Dot Award the wonderful LED1 from Tunto is a wonderful combination of technological finesse and good old bent plywood.

Easiest is probably just to watch the video.

Collecteur by Christian Lessing

Imagine a stool the grows along with your magazine collection.
Christian Lessing did and the result is fantastic.
And very very simple; being as it is nothing more than two pieces of metal which slide.

What I particularly like is the fact that you can create one stool for a different magazine collection and so in one stroke solve both seating and storage problems.

Helena Lebá - softes

I would love to be able to tell you a little more about this product; sadly the designers website is so user unfriendly I can't...

But fortunately that doesn't distract from the quality of the idea, and I am convinced that the execution is as good as it appears
Check it out yourself at

And an appeal to Helena - drop the flash and reconsider the navigation :)

Next week I'm of to IMM in Cologne, and so am busy planning my trip - just to make sure I make the best possible use of my limited time.
And so it came to pass that I inadvertently stumbled across cubit - a wonderful modular storage system.
Not least because some of the elements are intended to be wall mounted thus meaning that you can plan space into your constructions.
