As a huge fan of Dana Cannam’s Clamp Lamp, an elegantly simple construction he designed for Pablo, I had to see what new projects he has been working on. I came across Hummingbird, a joint project done in conjunction with Agata Karolina. Hummingbird is brilliant contemporary take on the classic rocking char, updating its usability to modern time.
When the user sits upright in Hummingbird, the chair rocks forward, allowing the user to comfortably sit at desk. But with a slight shift in weight, Hummingbird gently falls back, allowing the user to relax in what the designers call “an embracing sensation.”
Hummingbird was presented at The Front Room exhibition at Ca’Laghetto, Via Laghetto, Milan, during the Salone Del Mobile 2012.
The Making Hard Things Soft pillow line by the new Swedish design company How Are You is brilliant! The 50cm x 50 cm hand made pillows, printed in Sweden, are made from heavy 100% cotton canvas and feature detailed images of hard surfaces like rock, plywood, & concrete.
The pillows are available for purchase direct from How Are You for 600 Swedish Kronas or around 84.00 US dollars.

The InBetween House, designed by Tokyo based architecture firm Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates, is a collection of small combined cottages built outside of Tokyo in the mountains. The clients wanted a simple & elegant retreat from their hectic city lives. The collection of 5 structures, each with its own purpose, are built with independent roof lines that bleed into each other, creating both intimate interior spaces & covered “exterior” passages.
The design intent of this construction method was to create an architectural language similar to that of the city, with separate buildings and alleyways, allowing a free-form arrangement so that each space is perfectly situated to its surrounding landscape.
The Paul & Paula side table by designer Matthias Ferwager are a beautiful pair. The tables, designed for German furniture company Nils Holger Moormann, are built using sturdy reversible laminated wooden tops and steel legs that are held in place by rope that from the looks of it, allows you to adjust the height of the tops.
