Designed by Giorgio Caporaso of Caporaso Design, this strikingly organic chair is meant as a transformable solution for both indoor and outdoor applications, with efficiency and environmental sustainability in mind. The concept of the chair eliminates the need to overpopulate a room or patio with furniture, since each single piece transforms in a simple rolling motion to become either a traditional high-back chair or a form-fitting Chaise lounge. The structure is balanced and comfortable in both positions, providing plenty of support for your back or your legs in either configuration. Absolutely no levers need to be pulled or buttons pushed to change between positions; each application is built into its design without any transformation necessary. Additionally, the straight-down sides of each chair allow an entire row to be placed side-by-side to create a single long couch or social lounge.
In addition to being uniquely configurable, Caporaso's chairs are also responsible, made from cardboard or from wood in its current production run (there is a possibility that the option of plastic or metal finishes may be added later on). Each unit uses as little material as possible, as evidenced by the round cutouts in the side of the design. This saves precious natural materials while keeping the chair light enough to move and transform with ease. Every part of the lounge is biodegradable and easily disposed of in a responsible manner, allowing you to replace it when the need comes. Styled with soft, natural curves and built from strong yet responsible materials, this dual-purpose furniture piece is perfect for an eco-conscious house.

Zeno Nugari designed the Escapade Sofa as a low based mattress style lounger that just happens to have removable slip covers and super soft back cushions. The back cushions can be placed freely on the sofa in any location due to their weighted bottom section - but they can also be removed for when you prefer to lay back and have a nap and while this makes the Escapade not only super functional and comfortable but it is also sleek and modern making it the perfect choice to pair with other contemporary pieces such as the Flying Flower cocktail table by Sacha Lakic and the Arloso Lounge Chair designed by Zeno Nugari as seen here.

Desk is perfect for a home office or professional environment.
One solid plank of wood from a 350-year-old Oak tree was used to create this very impressive 320x110cm table. Designed and created by Christa Braun and Christoph Braun from Berngau, Germany, Table 0007 is an awesome example of what can be done with a little vision and the right tools. The weight of this plank requires substantial support, yet the base does not overpower the top, in fact it is perfectly proportioned with the thickness of the slab. What an awesome table for either a dining room or a conference.

It?s a chair that brings ?creature comforts? back home. Dubbed the ?Origine Du Monde, Maybe!? chair, this unusual, ultra-modern chair was design by Italo Rota for Italian furniture house Meritalia. The soft hues complement the plush cushions perfectly, forming what the designed has described as ?uterine sensuality.? The cushions are made of memory foam which, in keeping with the obviously maternal theme of the design, reminds us of protection, rest and the future. The base is made from polished aluminum, irregular in shape, just like the chair concept as a whole, If you like unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, this is a must-see! Check it out at Meritalia.

Is it a radiator, or is it artwork? These cool modern radiators by Caleido are both! The Therme home radiator is an masterful swirl of brilliant hues reminiscent of watercolor. For more-modern tastes, the Geiger radiator features a computer-generated design set on a sleek, black background. The elongated rectangular shape is easy to incorporate among your existing artwork, or let it steal the spotlight and feature it as an art piece all on its own. These cool radiators are by Karim Rashid, who stayed true to his signature funky style. These new radiators made their debut at Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2010. Fore more info visit Caleido.
