brent comber wooden furniture

January 20, 2011

Canadian designer brent comber creates furniture using wood in unusual ways. his ‘alder’ series features branches which have been clumped together and cut into geometric forms. the result of this process keeps the form of the tree intact while create a contemporary form. the ‘shattered’ collection has a similar process but instead of branches, it uses cut sections from logs. this creates an effect that resembles shattered glass or ice, hence the name. comber’s most innovative use of wood can be found in his series of lampshades made from cedar trunks. the shades have small perforation drilled in the side to let light through. comber’s work is all made with sustainably harvested wood, often using scraps from wood mills.

Art Lebedev Verbarius Word Clock

January 16, 2011

The Verbarius electronic clock by Art Lebedev, a design firm that’s also given us fancy gadgets like the OLED Optimus Maximus keyboard, icon fridge magnets, folder flash drives and the Optimus Aux keypad. The Verbarius displays time not by numbers, but solely by phrases like “Twenty-nine past eleven a.m.” or “Half past ten”. Amazing, but pricey. The clock works just as described, displaying phrases instead of times. You can have up to ten different variations on a single “minute”, so 10:10 could be “ten ten”, “ten past ten”, “ten minutes past ten”, “fifty til eleven”, or whatever other weird notation you can think of. To make your own language packs (it already comes with English, French, Russian and Spanish), just make an .xls file and send it to Art Lebedev. They’ll convert it to Verbarius’ proprietary format. Buy here for about $190us.

Golf Course for the Backyard

May 25, 2009

If you’re a golf nut, you’ve probably fantasized about being able to step outside your house and play a few rounds. Unless you live on a golf course, this probably isn’t going to happen, but perhaps you could satisfy the urge by putting a few just off the back deck.

Green Links, Inc. specializes in synthetic golf putting greens and lawn turf. They have a gallery of pictures on their site, showing residential installations they’ve done. The nice thing about the synthetic stuff is it always looks good and you don’t have to mow anything. Of course, if you’re determined to have a lawn to take care of, you can always leave the front yard unscathed…
