Flowater – a flower in your bathroom

A faucet and a vase at the same time – that’ s what Slava Saakyan studio from Russia came up with.

An idea of the project was cast over by visiting Grohe design-center. It’s peculiar with combination of traditional utility and aesthetic function within one object. When you want to put flower in a usual vase, first you need to put water inside – here you have both possibilities in one – a faucet is a vase at the same time.

Again we come back to the symbiosis of two substances: water, life-generating element, domesticated with a cold metal gadget. It’s a common thing we don’t pay too much attention, but no living thing can survive without water, like a fragile flower. Why not we make a reminder for this simple truth and combine traditional functionality with aesthetic pleasure?

It’s bed time!

Belgian designer Xavier Lust has developed this coach with aluminium framework for Indera, the furniture company. The coach will be called Flow, and what is also remarkable, it is going to have a 4-meter long variant.
The Pixel couch – next best thing on the Internet lately. Royal College of Art graduate (UK) Cristian Zuzunaga has devised a fabric based on a ‘pixel’ concept, which is being produced by Danish manufacturer Kvadrat and sold through Moroso.

Even more fabulous sofa bed is the one by Saba Italia. The two semi-circular sides of the bed separate to make playful yet practical half-moon shaped seating. Swung back together, this couch called Scoop is a full-moon of a bed. The circular bed has a strong presence and cosmopolitan style. So, rather than relegating your sofa bed to a hidden corner, use it to deliver all of your seating and sleeping needs.

Turn your tub into a sofa! This clever design by Max McMurdo breathes life into an antique fixture, and turns what was headed for waste into a smart piece of furniture. Besides, this couch is also green! And we are for green!

Also, check a great collection of unusual sofas by Moss. Mostly designed by Francesco Binfare , these couches look like a great supplement to other freaky stuff we like so much.
