Collaborative Project by THINKK Studio & Studio 248

Observing specific details in the simplest everyday actions resulted in this collaborative project by THINKK Studio and Studio 248 that explores specific gestures unmet by conventional furniture: “ARMS chair”, a multi-armrest chair for various sitting gestures, and “7-day-closet” for personalizing outfit selections for the week.

This collaboration also features works with hidden twists such as “Merging Top”: stackable tilted vase set that puts the fun back into flower arranging, and “Crane Lamp”: simple at first glance, but its flexible joints can transform it into many different shapes and positions.

ARMS chair Designed by : THINKK Studio

Nowadays, many chair designs are focused on creating unique forms and materials, but very few of them consider the functions that we often overlook.
Having carefully observed the way people sit on chairs, we found that the armrest is in fact, an interesting object; it can be used in so many ways, positions and at so many different heights, representing formal or informal expressions. “ARMS chair” offers additional armrests to answer to different sitting gestures, making it unique to each user despite its simple form.

Crane Lamp Designed by : Studio 248

“Crane Lamp” is inspired from the shape of the crane used in construction sites, which can transform into different formations. Likewise, this lamp is able to twist and turn according to the user’s desire, through the simplest and most seamless joints. The craftsmanship of this Ash-wood creation makes it appear like an unsuspecting piece of sculpture, ready to transform into a lamp at any time.

Merging Top Designed by : THINKK Studio

Inspired from a classic toy known as the Spinning Top, “Merging Top” comes with 2 different vases, of different shapes, sizes, and degrees of tilt, to create new styles of flower arrangements. The small vase can be stacked on top of the large vase, transforming into a sculpture-like form that combines two contrasting materials which complement each other. With this Merging Top, flower arranging takes on another level of fun.
