The Murakami rocking chair truly rocks. Designed by Rochus Jacob, the chair comes attached with an OLED Lamp that draws it juice from the kinetic energy produced by rocking motion. The chair comes equipped with a battery pack and the lamp has an in-built sensor so that it doesn't light up in daylight. Brilliant isn't it?

The "Uncompleted Chair" hasn't been designed by a bunch of procrastinators as the lack of back support is intentional. Looks like designers Chia-Wei Lin and Jui-Lu Shih thought that storing umbrellas and other knick-knacks takes precedent over a boring chair back! A neat concept but I personally cannot imagine buying a chair that lacks a back!

This decadent piece of furniture is called "Deco" featuring a great black and white upholstery pattern that dresses up a room and adds a touch of being more formal.

If we look back to the 1970s beanbag chairs were very popular. The round accessory seating came in many colors including some bold ones for that time period. Those models featured a round design where a "nest" was made which created the seating nook. This retro idea is a more modern version called "AMPLOA". The first improvement is having a backrest allowing the person to sit more upright. AMPLOA can come with an ottoman and is available in many colors for €250 here.

Writing all the time on Furniture Fashion, it is not often that we come across round furniture arrangements compared to the more typical square or rectangular shapes. Offices and public spaces that are seeking round or circular spatial relationships in their seating needs may be drawn to this type of arrangement. This product is called "Kurve" and was designed by Niels Gammelgaard. The design inspiration for Kurve came from a garden complex in Barcelona, Spain called Park Guell. There a particular bench mimics the shape of a sea serpent. More information: here.
This great product is called "Stool 60" which offers a modular seating concept where the design and color creation is in the hand of the buyer. My first thought was using an installation of Stool 60 in schools or commercial businesses. The flexibility in creating different shapes offers a unique experience allowing for a room to be used for many different things based on how it is setup. More information: here.

You are never too old for Mickey Mouse! No, I am not on the payroll of Walt Disney but simply love the adorable mouse to death. So imagine my excitement when I came across the Mickey Ribbon Stool, designed by nendo. The ribbon stool pays homage to world's most famous mouse (sorry Jerry) in its own inimitable way and is a result of the collaboration between Cappelini and the Walt signature adult lifestyle brand. This quirky stool is hard to resist since not only does it displays an acute sense of design but also keeps its eccentricity intact.

While the "Memory" Chair by renowned Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka may not be the most aesthetically designed chair, we still can't resist covering it. Debuting at the prestigious 2010 Milan Design Fair, the chair is already creating a buzz in the design continuum thanks to its material of choice. Made from recycled aluminum, this sustainable chair is able to alter its shape according to the weight or size of the user who has parked his/her derriere on it.
Says the designer:
"This chair might remind us of the beauty in nature with its ever-changing expressions, and also create the impression as if there is no presence of design."
Sweltering in the Sun? Missing the damp cold winter days? Well, then maybe the Ice Chair by Baíta Design is perfect for you. No, it won't cool down your body but thanks to the on board acrylic and stainless steel, it will definitely create an illusion. Brazilian designers Helena Bueno and Heinz Müller have managed to create quite a minimalistic wonder as the first think you notice about the Ice Chair is its sleek exterior and durable construction. I personally see the chair working more in a commercial set up like stores, offices or even airports but hey thats just me.
At the Milan Design Week 2010, Gilli Kuchik of Bakery will present a cutting-edge chair made from a proprietary technique called "Elastic Wood".

At this day and age, we all should adhere to the "Go Green" mantra. Interestingly the A&D field has been able to prove that recycled objects don't necessary translate into ugly.

Case in point, Emeco's 111 Coca Cola Pet Bottles Navy Chair which as the name suggests is made of 111 discarded bottles and according to Emeco they expect to use about 3,000,000 plastic beverage bottles each year in production! The chair is solely made of plastic PET bottles (about 65% post consumer content) and will be exhibiting at the Milan Furniture Fair.
I don't really know what to say about the "Bear Me" chair from Ontwerpers except it fits with the rest of their furniture designs as very unusual. The fiber reinforced artificial resin structure is handcrafted and "inspired by the outspoken deformed shape in nature, the way we processed the material resulted in a seemingly chaotic pattern of frost flowers". Made and delivered on special request. 145 x 90 x 62 cm See the rest of the totally unique furniture from Ontwerpers of the Netherlands here.
