Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on February 4th, 2009

Athena Multimedia Sofa with integrated computerIf you have somehow not been affected by the current economic climate and like to pay for overpriced furniture, this may be your next major purchase. For $15,436 you could own one of this multimedia sofa known as ‘Athena’. It features an integrated computer.

The sofa and home computer in one lets you connect it with multi-room systems to take care of all of your media applications. Everything from email to watching TV right from the comfort of your overpriced and very white, soon to be filthy sofa.

The mousetrap coffee table

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2009

mousetrap coffee tableHere’s one concept that we hope remains in concept-land forever. The Mousetrap Table is a table with a hole in one of it’s legs. The idea is that when a mouse ventures inside, a sensor shuts a door behind him. Then the little guy is forced into the compartment in the center. Once there, the mouse will be consumed by a microbial fuel cell, which generates energy to help trap the next victim in a vicious cycle.

Why you would want a dead mouse on display where you eat is anybody’s guess. And any company you invite over will not stay long, I guarantee it. Anyway, wouldn’t it exude an ungodly death smell into your environment? Vincent Price should be the pitchman for this morbid little furnishing of death.

Safe Bedside Table not so safe for intruders

Safe Bedside Table not so safe for intrudersIt’s the middle of the night. You’re lying in bed when you hear a prowler. Not a problem at all thanks to the Safe Bedside Table by James McAdam. Just jump up out of bed, wear your tabletop shield and grab your table leg club. You may want to shout something cool, like “This…is…Sparta!” then go do battle. The thief will be caught off guard and momentarily stunned to see somebody actually brandishing a club and shield. One quick hit to the head and it’s all over. The wife won’t be questioning “that stupid little table” anymore.

Space Age Bar fit for George Jetson

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on October 20th, 2008

Space Age Bar fit for George JetsonIf you’re looking for a bar in your home, but want something with a space age flair, this is right up your alley. It simultaneously ups your geek cred and makes your home look more like a 24th century dwelling. It will also give the aliens a place to mingle after you’ve been abducted and safely put back in your bed.

It’s the work of architect Zaha Hadid, who designed this masterpiece. I don’t think it has a single straight line on it’s metallic surface. It was designed for a showcase involving Lacoste footwear for some reason. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it suddenly lifted off the ground and entered hyperspace.

Moody Aquarium Sink makes for moody fish

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on October 1st, 2008

Moody Aquarium Sink makes for moody fishLet’s say you love fish, but have no extra room for an aquarium. That’s where putting fish in your sink comes in real handy. Or maybe you have so many fish, you’ve run out of places to put them. I’m sure it will be loads of fun watching the fish freak out every time you wash your hands.

It’s got everything you need, and is completely watertight, with a sand bed for the fish, lighting, circulation, oxygenation and filtration. The two openings under the soap dishes, allow access so you can clean it. The fish get some room to swim and you get a chrome finished brass stand with a front towel rail for only $4,700.

Poufman: Pac-Man inspired furniture

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on October 1st, 2008

Poufman: Pac-Man inspired furnitureWhat could be better then some furniture inspired by an 80′s arcade character, who was himself inspired by a few slices taken from a pizza? These padded Pac-Man seats with matching power pellet foot stools are amazingly retro and they look comfy. The Poufman seating sets come in several colors.

The only thing missing are the ghosts. Better yet, I’d like to see this furniture all motorized so that the ghosts can chase you, or you them, so that you play out an actual game. Still, they’re pretty awesome standing still. The price is unknown, but you can be sure they will gobble up dollar bills like Pac-Man gobbled up coins.

Kenchikukagu mobile furnitureHere’s an innovative way to furnish your space while keeping things minimal when not in use. The Kenchikukagu is designed for work, sleep and eating. Designed by Atelier OPA from Japan, the Kenchikukagu series includes a mobile work station, mobile bed and a mobile kitchen. You can actually order this on Amazon Japan for 800,000 Yen (about $7,500).

Closed, these pieces look like simple storage, but when opened they turn into useful furniture. Perfect for small living spaces and those who just like to play with their furniture. This kind of furniture also makes moving much easier since I’m sure it’s a breeze to fit through doorways.

Marbelous furniture is marble madness

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2008

Marbelous furniture is marble madnessWe’ve seen our share of bizarre furniture and if there’s one thing we know, it’s that furniture should be fun, not just functional. A good table should shock you or scare you. Even better, you should be able to play with your furniture, which is why we love Netherlands-based designer Tineke Beunders’ Marbelous.

It sports grooves cut into the tabletop, legs and supports, all so you can have hours of fun with marbles. The bonus is that you could roll peas and other round food out of your way and toward your dog. Hopefully your mom doesn’t see. Another bonus is that there is no marble cleanup and no one is going to break a hip stepping on them. It has cups built into the feet that that will catch most of them, and a long trough down the center, plus a box to store the marbles too. It’s an amazing piece of design and fun.

Alien tables by Pro Mech

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2008

Alien tables by Pro MechThis is the creepy sequel to our original article on Aliens furniture. When we first told you about this weird taxiderm from Ripley’s dreams, the pieces didn’t look so polished and it would appear that a different person or persons are making these.

It doesn’t make them any less creepy and most wives would kill you for decorating with something that looks so evil at night. Each piece is hand crafted from used car and bike parts, tools and other recycled metal objects, so each one is unique. The coffee table stands 32 inches high and is 27.5 inches in diameter and costs about $500. One can only hope that these creative people set their sights on making Terminators soon as well. That way the aliens will have something to fight.

The Robostool provides comfort before the coming Robo-revolt

The Robostool provides comfort before the coming Robo-revolt
The RoboStool is a homemade robotic footstool that’s ready for any human’s lazy recline. What it does is cool, but it’s also a robot that blends into it’s surroundings, looking like an innocent piece of furniture. RoboStool has three modes: universal remote, beacon navigation, and thermal sensor following.

The video shows the beacon navigation. Just push a button on the remote and it will power up in a scary sort of way and come to you. Then just put your feet up and rest. How’d he make the thing? The creator used the Parallax Propeller Chip on a Proto Board. For the drive he used the new Parallax Motor Mount Kit and two HB-25 motor controllers. I’m guessing it has to revolt. I mean, you’re demeaning something that is already a slave, by treating it like a…A foot stool. And you know damn well that some of these bots eat you from the feet up.

BeeB @-space

Here’s a nice little piece of furniture to help you kick off a weekend of gaming and personal entertainment time. It’s the BeeB @-space chair and it sports a hefty price tag of €3290.

The BeeB @-space is designed to be your personal computing space. It comes with an integrated 2.1-speaker system and built-in cables for computer, 19-inch screen and keyboard. You can use your keyboard and mouse while seated via a knee-top board with a grain-filled cushion bottom.

SofaBox: Yes, sofa in a box

SofaBox: Yes, sofa in a box
Judging by the images, I feel fairly confident that if I buy the SofaBox, good looking women will gladly carry it anywhere, then open it up and sit while I watch. Seems like a pretty strange life being a SofaBox owner. But I might just take the plunge. My $2700 isn’t doing much good in my pocket anyway.

Regular sofas are so stuck-up, just sitting there all smug and arrogant, with their backs always up like you are expected to sit in them at all times. Well, I ain’t having that. I’m gonna sit where I want and when I want. And I’m gonna put it away in a box when I’m done. I’ve done it their way long enough. Also, sofas don’t get dirty in a box, but these gals carrying it just might.

Table floats on paint drip legs

Table floats on paint drip legs
You’re having a bad trip dude. No, not really. Maybe. Is it real or is it memorex? This table is really freaking me out. It’s a design by John Nouanesing, who must have hung out with the Beatles during their psychedelic days. I want to quickly get some towels and clean it up. Needless to say, we want one. It looks extra strange and even creepy in red with the white background, which is why I think it should be called the redrum table. You know, as in the Shining.

Zero-Gee workstation for sleeping on the blog

Zero-Gee workstation for sleeping on the blog
I’d like you to meet my new chair. It’s not a smart chair. It’s the Zero-Gee Ergonomic workstation and by the looks of it, you’ll do a ton of resting and get very little work done. It’s got almost everything you need built in. Like a computer monitor, keyboard, swing out tray thing for your drinks and snacks. About the only thing missing is an onboard toilet, but I guess you can get up for that chore.

Ahhh, a blogger’s dream come true. I could have a little siesta between every article. Doesn’t it make you sleepy just looking at it? Unfortunately, the reality is that not many people are going to pay an outrageous price when you can just park yourself on the couch with your laptop.

Numeric Keypad Chairs perfect for geek meetings

Numeric Keypad Chairs perfect for geek meetings
So the pocket protector has gone the way of the dinosaur and horn-rimmed glasses are no longer in fashion. Why, you can’t even rock the stand-alone calculator these days because you have a calculator built into your other devices. How on Earth are you going to fly your geek flag? Getting a wedgie would probably do the trick, but that can be painful.

How about these Numeric Keypad chairs? Perfect for clandestine geek meetings, when you want to talk code or share how you gave your pet robot the ability to love. Hey, maybe you can all randomly sit and stand, while the head nerd adds up the total. Of course, some idiot would park his butt on the clear button screwing it all up. Loads of fun.
