NOTE:

Slim is Dutch for smart, English for you know what. This object looks very light and simple when collapsed but transforms in a functional stool within seconds. The seating is hold tight to the legs using Neodymium magnets and the legs stay together by very strong hidden hinges. Although it may look light, it support weights up to 130 kilograms. Built in is a locking mechanism on top which blocks lateral movement of the seat. The best thing about the stool is the smile on every adult or kids face when revealing the secret behind the banal looking sheet of wood.

NOTE:

Seamlessly sculpted from glass and sound-absorbing cork, the soft and friendly appearance of the «Pianissimo» lamp invites you to come share a quiet moment in the comfort of its gentle light.
Traditionally, the design of cork-based lamps forces an undesired downside in production; the excessive waste linked to the process of transforming a solid block of cork into a thin and hollow shade. By utilizing the flexibility of the cork to wrap the material around the glass, the «Pianissimo» lamp offers an innovative and material-conscious approach to its genre, dramatically reducing the total amount of used material. 
A soft and smooth outer shell shelters its glowing, energy efficient heart of LEDs, while the white frosted glass gently crushes its light making it warm and welcoming.
