Com-Oda by Mr. Simon amazing folding chairs

Com-Oda is a set of six folding chairs that when they are not in use, they form another piece of furniture utilizing the space when they are in use and when they are not! I like the folding chairs and its also a great way to store them. Pretty smart! Com-Oda was designed by Mr. Simon a Spain-based graphic and product design studio.

Thank you Core77 for posting this awesome project!

Crater Lake by 24° Studio

Crater Lake is one of the winners for Shitsurai Art International Competition organized by the city of Kobe, Japan. This installation was design by 24° Studio as a multi-use environment, the entire installation serves as seating and/or meeting place by evoking social interaction within and around its environment. The Crater Lake will be exhibited at the Kobe Biennale 2011.

I really like this installation; I like the form, structure and materials. Its structures like this that activate spaces in big open public areas. I really appreciate the flexibility of it; it can be move, built and dismantle to different places and environments. Love it!

Rolled up magazines = Happier Boots!

This weekend I thought my magazine pile was getting a little too big, so I went through it to recycle a few. But before I finish that, I moved on to the next task, cleaning my closet. I noticed my knee-high boots were getting damage, they were bended and in a messy closet. I tried several times to straighten them up but nothing was working. Then suddenly it hit me! I went back to the kitchen and rolled up some magazines to put inside my boots, and it worked!
For the ankle-high boots I cut paper towel rolls in half. Try it! All you need is paper towel rolls, magazines, rubber bands and boots!
