Vases with concrete bases in wire frames by Decha Archjananun of THINKK Studio were featured on Dezeen last summer - take a look at them here.

Here are some more details from the designers:


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 personalising 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 byTHINKK 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.

Materials : Ash wood/ Fabric
Dimensions : 49 x 60 H 75

7-day-closet
Designed by Studio 248

We often find our closets overcrowded with clothes we rarely wear. And of course, more than often, we find ourselves spending ages to find that favourite item we wear all the time. This “7-day-closet” will help you set out what to wear week by week, featuring your favourite outfits, for your working day, holiday, or for whatever occasion that suits your mood. The design is versatile to suit each person’s unique style: the pole can be rotated outwards, making room for longer dresses or pants. The drawers are designed for more casual outfits that can be folded on top of each other, so you could simply pull out your favourite design from the stack. Everyone plans ahead what to do week by week, so why can’t we do the same with clothes?

Materials : Ash wood
Dimensions : 40 x 70 H 155

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.

Materials : Marble / Ash wood / Ceramic
Dimensions : 12 (diameter) H 16 / 22 (diameter) H 10

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.

Materials : Ash wood
Dimensions : 15 x 15 H 40

    <3 the lamp and the chair. Not so sure about the wardrobe; I feel that it would suit perfectly in a child's room, yet they chose to display it with stark business attire.

    At first glance that lamp looked simplistic in form, but further details show it to be a fun and versatile idea. The cable and wood interaction like cord toggles is great!

    Love the vases!

    The lamp is (overly) derivative of the Truncheon Lamp by Cmmnwlth, featured here: http://www.dezeen.com/2010/07/02/truncheons-by-cm

    Very interesting design. They are exceptionally simplistic and almost childlike yet refined and professional.
