The Calamus Duo Merges Graphic Design + Furniture Design

What happens when you merge the elements of graphic design and furniture design? Recently designers Steve Wolf and Brandon Kershner – aka Karni Studio – worked together to create a duo of products born of just that, reaching for inspiration and elements from two separate worlds.

Calamus was inspired by Bauhaus era graphic art, architecture, and furniture design. It’s difficult to look at these pieces without smiling, because their forms and shapes are nothing short of happy when used together.

The Morphing Table by Creative Chef created in collaboration with BASF’s performance materials division, Designfabrik, imagines such a future where the table itself becomes an adaptive accessory in service of the art of plating.
