Oh how I want this
Rachel Ballantine The Idea of Comfort
“Challenging the Perception Of Comfort. These chairs are CNC cut from one sheet of wood and slotted together without the need for glue or screws. The chair frames are then filled with different ‘Ideas of Comfort’.”
The artist even created a postcard version of the chair frame.
Went on a trip to Dubai first Design Days fair which took place March 19th-21
Was basically an amalgamation of designers from all over the world showcasing their products in the categories of art, interior design and furniture.
Took plenty of photos to be sure ;)
Awesome Interactive Screen that makes wings appear when you flap your arms <3
Ice Angel by Dominic Harris (Cinimod Studio, London) will be presented for the first time during the Dubai fair. The brand new interactive design creation is presented by Priveekollektie (Heusden, The Netherlands)
As the user moves their arms a new wing shape appears, unfurling from the shoulders, moving and displacing virtual snow. The wings are created dynamically and are linked to the participant. The artwork has a ‘memory’, capturing a hidden view of the participant and their angel wings, and this specific angel identity remains linked to that participant in any future encounters with the artwork.
The merging of angel mythology and the natural phenomenon of light travelling to earth creates an intriguing intersection. In modern terms, light is our messenger, allowing us to view the universe. An angel’s form is inherently human, yet an angel always originates from beyond.

French by Design: A loft in Florence. Love the use of white and dark wood <3
Designed by Jo Meesters, Light Box is a series of lamps made in the tradition of furniture making. The lamp which is made out of wood has a pattern of 8.000 holes reinforced with transparent resin. In combination with the pattern of low growing trees, Light Box is the ideal room divider forming an artificial hedge or a nocturnal landscape with your home.
