Hummingbird: A contemporary take on the rocking chair by Dana Canna & Studio Agata Karolina

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.

InBetween House by Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates

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.
