Using Wood the Creative Way: Alma Table by Roberta Rampazzo


Alma (“Soul”) table was created by Brazilian designer Roberta Rampazzo and has a simple, yet original appearance. Seen on Design Milk, we find this furniture piece to be an example of how wood scraps can be employed in creating a functional design. The acrylic frame holds the scraps together while giving an overall elegant touch to the product. The project developer asserted that this is her way to emphasize on the nobility of wood, even in its most unused shape. The table looks sturdy and can be integrated with ease in various contemporary decors. Bottom line is if you have a bunch of wood scraps at home, you might want to put your imagination to the test and see how you can achieve a practical furniture piece. What do you think of the overall design of this unusual table?

Fun and Modern Rocky Modular Cradle by Jäll & Tofta


Named Rocky, this next exceptionally designed modular cradle:”is a piece of furniture with long usability, as it adapts to the growth and needs of an active child. At first it is both a cradle for baby, and a rocking-chair for parents, combined into one. As the child grows the cradle can be rotated 180° and turns into a children’s bed with a length of 140 cm. Use the bedrail as a boundary for greater safety.” Its white, modern shape and gentle swing allow kids to interact with the piece of furniture and create a strong bond with it. The creators, a young German product designer team – Sina Gwosdzik and Jakob Dannenfeldt of Jäll & Tofta – fabricated the Rocky Cradle as a modular help around the house. This beautiful, contemporary cradle was manufactured in Germany using only ecological and carefully selected materials. Scroll down to see the photo shooting for Rocky with James & Jasper from Jäll & Tofta.
