Digitable reveals itself as untypical DVD coffee table

Posted in Concepts by Nino Marchetti on June 2nd, 2008


Here’s a cool high tech furniture concept idea which works well if you like the extreme minimalist look in your urban crash pad. It is called, simply enough, the Digitable.

The Digitable, as envisioned by designer Peter Lea, looks simply at first like a contemporary glass coffee table. Closer inspection shows though the center circular part opens up to reveal itself as a CD/DVD player. The underside as well also plays into the geek factor, serving as a disc storage carousel.

Suissa Enlighten wood & aluminum PC

Posted in Computer Components by Conner Flynn on May 27th, 2008

Suissa Enlighten wood & aluminum PC
The Enlighten PC from Suissa Computers has a bit of an odd design. It looks more like a great bit of art deco furniture or a retro speaker. We first told you about it here. It’s a custom wood, metal and glass case that has separated components that helps to boost cooling. It’s not just a crap computer inside either. You get a choice of Intel Quad core CPU or AMD X2 6400+ processors, with 4GB of RAM and 1TB of storage standard. You get a DVD burner and a choice of NVIDIA 8800GTX or ATI Radeon HD2900XT video cards.

Interestingly, the system is designed so that you don’t need many fans. It’s all about the engineering and where they placed the components, with the aluminum and air venting keeping it all cool. It’s a limited edition of only ten machines, so if you want one you better hurry up. No word on pricing. All I know is it looks damn cool and damn retro. That makes me want it.

Shop for groceries, play some Atari

Shop for groceries, play some Atari
Clean up on isle six, I just kicked your ass at Missile Command. How cool is this? This Milwaukee, Wisconsin grocery store has an atari section, where you can hang out and play, complete with period TV, wallpaper and furniture. It’s a great way to get the guys to do the shopping, I’ll say that.

The display includes a fully-functional Atari 2600(Newer black version), and a nice assortment of about 50 classic games just waiting to be stolen. Looks like the only detail from my childhood that they missed is having my mom stand there nagging me while I’m trying to play Space Invaders. Otherwise, it’s like being there. Note to the employees: That plant fails to hide the cords.


The Sync luxury integrated PC desk

The Sync luxury integrated PC desk
Now building a computer into a desk is a great idea, the problem is that you don’t always want to use your computer when you use the desk. That’s why Gareth Battensby’s Sync concept is a good one. The massive flip-up LCD sells me on the idea. The illuminated keyboard doesn’t hurt either.

The main thing is that Gareth has made sure you can actually use Sync as a desk when you want to. It was designed as a final year project for his degree, so sadly, Sync is unlikely to see the light of day. Very sad indeed, because aside from the practicality, it’s also a lovely piece of furniture.

NapTV: The lazy way to watch TV

NapTV: The lazy way to watch TV
This device has slacker written all over it. I used to think that laying around watching TV was as lazy as it could get. I was wrong. This may be taking laziness and TV to a whole other level. Too lazy to even hold your head up on your shoulders and watch TV? This gadget has you covered if you can step away from your bong long enough to read this.

With NapTV you don’t even have to sit upright just to look in the TV’s direction. You can lay under the damn thing. All that’s required of your sorry ass is to keep your eyes open. It was designed by Sung-kyu Nam, and it even serves as a chair if your apartment is completely devoid of furniture. When you tire of sitting on your butt, just slide under this thing again and tune out the world.

TouchMan emotion cell phone concept

TouchMan emotion cell phone concept
The TouchMan cellphone concept is interesting because it can actually become a piece of furniture that allows you to communicate in a more personal way with others. That’s because the device allows for the visual sharing of emotions. Think of it as a combination screensaver, instant messenger and…aquarium.

That’s right, you can watch your contacts like fishes in an aquarium on the touchscreen. They would change color and activity according to their current moods and availability. Very bizarre indeed, but it has a lot of potential. The docking station will charge the main station and the cellphone at the same time, and when the cellphone is disconnected, the main device goes into a sleep mode.

mediacore.jpgIf the wife is screaming because your media center PC has cables running everywhere around your home theater room, you need a remedy to restore marital bliss. One possible solution might be the MediaCore and its furniture cabinet looks.

The MediaCore is a wooden enclosure which looks like a stylish European type cabinet. It is essentially a full fledged computer which is built into this thing, as you can see from the picture above. It has a forced air flow design to keep things cool and can host other A/V equipment like cable boxes to keep clutter down.

Han Solo frozen in carbonite, as your desk

Posted in Furniture by Darrin Olson on February 23rd, 2008

Han Solo in carbonite deskWe’ve seen a number of products featuring not just Han Solo but Han Solo frozen in carbonite, including this idea for a ‘fridge and we’ve even seen some pictures floating around of Han in carbonite built out of legos. Well now you can steal Vader’s prize to Boba Fett and have the frozen Han Solo for yourself and turned into a practical piece of furniture. This desk is actually real and was created by Tom Spina Designs for a client with an apparent love for Star Wars and some extra cash lying around.

Kloss DeLightablesNeed to funk up your living room or are you looking for a novelty to attract customers to your cafe? Consider purchasing one of Kloss’ DeLighTables and adding to your selection of furniture. Your guests will be able to regress back to the days when they made art with fingerpaint as the table’s pressure sensitive surface glows when the slightest touch is felt. The company is now manufacturing both side tables as well as coffee tables with the light panels only 20 mm thin. Set a drink on top of the table and watch as an unearthly glow emanates from the bottom before you can finish saying “Bacardi Breezer”.

The electrical system for the DeLighTable runs off of 12 volts and it’s completely waterproof. I can see bar and club patrons going gaga over one of these while trying to play pick-up artist but it could also be a lot of fun in your own den. Finger races anyone?
