Icila

Designed by Tolerie Forezienne in 2007

Doesn't that look inviting? I have never sat in this chair but I can only imagine that for a stacking chair it must be comfortable. The Icila chair is made of one piece of sheet metal, bent and cut to create a chair mad from metal but without welds. Minimal, sustainable, and beautiful. This design magnifies the raw material of sheet metal and comes in a multitude of colors. Perfect for an outdoor patio either at home or a lovely cafe, the Icila retails at around a whopping €1800 to €2000.

One O'Clock

Designed by Knudsen Berg Hindenes + Frode Myhr

The One O'Clock is in itself exceptionally simple. Take an eternally old design and make it look new and different. This  clock has a bowl shaped base that gives this wall piece depth, something most analog clocks do not have. Add some funky colors and bubble letter-esque hour hands and you have a winning, fun design simple enough for a minimalist Scandinavian home and fun enough for a dorm room (although I'm sure the price point is not for most college students).
