Mambo Unlimited Ideas recently unveiled two fresh designs – the marble Helene Center Table and Side Table. Mambo has a beautiful way of making the hard material feel soft through the design of the tables’ shapes and curves. You can mix and play with their selection of marbles to create a unique piece that’s all your own. Available tabletop choices include estremoz rosa or estremoz nero marquina, while the feet come in estremoz white matte, rosa, and nero marquina. The marbleization and textures Mambo has chosen are a real aesthetic treat.
DIY design resource Self-assembly recently published step-by-step instructions on how to make seven different chairs, including chairs designed by Enzo Mari, Max Lamb, Gerrit Rietveld, and Tord Boontje.
Self-assembly is a platform that encourages people to make their own replicas of iconic furniture designs instead of buying massed produced versions – reclaiming their purchasing power and the term “DIY” in the process. Self-production and critical thought on design, consumption, and production are encouraged through the instructions and the voices of designers who have championed the DIY movement themselves.
Mjolk Tambour Cabinet is a minimal cabinet created by Canada-based designer Thom Fougere for Mjölk. Working within the fields of product design, architecture, and furniture, Thom Fougere has had works exhibited on the international platform as well as lead the design for EQ3’s expansion across Canada and the United States.
Fougere’s most recent collaboration sought the creation of solid oak or walnut cabinet that features sliding tambour doors, which can wrap entirely around the back of the frame. The movement of the doors as they bend around the corner is both a tactile and auditory experience within itself.
Expect the Barry to look different as you circle around the table – that’s because the curved legs and table top tease your visual perception between paper thin to solid, depending on the angle by which they are seen. Designer Alain Gilles designed the Barry table for the Italian label MINIFORMS. The thin metal sheet legs are curved to look welcoming and friendly and to provide structural support to the tabletop, which has a deep chamfer on its edges so that it can appear extremely thin and lightweight or dense and heavy depending on the angle.
