Accordion Stool is designed by Natalie Dackelid, a Swedish furniture design student. A smart furniture that belongs to her summer course, this project is also the extension of Wooden Cloth table.
Inspired by Sweden expression that says “If there’s room in the heart, there’s room for the arse”, Natalie created an expandable furniture. This project basically means there’s always extra space for another person, this unique chair can be extended when you need it. Taking the expression and function of Wooden Cloth table, the designer wanted to take that project further by creating a seat structure to match the table. Using dove tail rails and some leather straps with triangular batons to make this stool expandable, double its length to make room for another person.
Hard day at work can cause you eager to beat something/someone after you get back home. That’s why, in my opinion “Stress Buster” lamp series is an innovative design. This product is based on the law of conservation energy: “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only be transformed from one state to another”. It tries to convert your stress into usable energy. “Stress Buster” consists of punching bag, kicking column, and squeeze ball where each of them has been designed with piezoelectricity layer that has the ability to generate an electrical field or electric potential in response to applied mechanical strain.
These lamps produce energy that is stored in the built-in rechargeable battery every time user kicking, punching, or squeezing. The squeeze balls are portable gadgets that can also be used as emergency lights. The more you squeeze and play, the more energy these balls can keep. User can also utilize them as small power generators since each of them has been designed with power outlet socket.
