A Stopgap as Design Curiosities becomes Curiosity and Curiosities

curiosityandcuriosities

In an effort to bring more unique and thoughtful content to our site we’ve been discussing and working on what changes we need to make. As those changes are taking place behind the scenes, and to let you know that we are still here, you can find us at Curiosity and Curiosities. We are sharing visual content daily as a stopgap for this transition.

BVD 2

BVD is one of Scandinavia’s leading design and branding agencies. They recently teamed up with Vitra to develop the Swiss furniture company’s 2016 pack­aging suite. Odds are you’ve encountered Vitra’s work before (although it was most likely unpackaged)—their line includes classic works by design legends Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Verner Panton, Alexander Girard, Jean Prouvé, and Jasper Morrison.

This week’s Field Guide is a collection of stools.

We are moving in to our new space at the end of the month, and we are mentally organizing furniture. We’ve never had a bar in our kitchen before, so we have been thinking about purchasing some stools. During my search, I saw stools not only as bar chairs, but as desk chairs, dining room chairs, and plant stands. All great ideas. Here is some inspiration; I am really liking the Monarchy rocking stool, it would be great by the door to put on shoes.

Good Goods: Keating Woodworks

Good Goods
Geoffrey Keating was destined to work with wood although he got there in a roundabout way. After a series of jobs and degrees he found his way to woodworking, becoming a fifth generation furniture maker. His collection of spindleback chairs is incredible, and I couldn’t choose a favorite. He has so many more beautiful pieces, and they are all worth checking out.

Good Goods: Georg Bench

Good Goods
The Georg series for Skagerak was designed by Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm. Made with function in mind these key pieces make life easier, in a beautiful way. The bench is my favorite of the series. The pad fastens to the bench in a very smart way; I’ve never seen anything like it before.
