IKEA Is Reissuing Amazing Old Designs From The 1950s And 1960s

Ikea is over 70 years old, which means the company has survived through dozens upon dozens of design trends, from stuffy conservatism in the late 1940s to the craziness of the 1960s. Wonderfully, the company is now plucking classics from its archives to sell in some stores.


This Is The Most Fun I've Ever Had Sitting In A Chair

The future is vibrant. The future is kinetic. The future is a chair that spins around when you sit on it. The future is incredible.


This Tiny Home Uses Sliding Walls To Transform One Room Into Four

We’ve seen our fair share of transforming apartments around here, from MIT’s super-advanced version to this IKEA-esque wonder. But none of them can compare to the sheer inventive genius of this apartment, in which huge sliding racks make it possible to pack a whole household into a tiny corridor of space.


This Beautiful Stool Can Be Built From Four Parts In Seconds

This beautiful flat pack stool has just four parts and can be put together in seconds — by simply screwing a plumbing value right through its centre.


I Want To Sit In This Childish Chair All Day Long

If this chair looks like ramshackle mess, that’s because it’s supposed to. Inspired by the childhood forts we all used to make out of blankets and furniture and whatever else we could find, this chair is design for adults to play instead.


This Bench Is Built Using Two Power Mac G5s

The Apple Power Mac G5 was an iconic computer — but, launched back in 2003, it’s since been superseded by the Mac Pro. So what better way to celebrate its long and useful life than using its bold looks elsewhere in the office?


This Creepy Halloween Ad From IKEA Is Just Perfect, Danny

IKEA, in general, is a frightening place, a bizarre isolated world unto itself filled with sad, desperate people. Sometimes, I feel like I’ll never make it out of that maze alive. That’s what makes this ad from IKEA Singapore, promoting its late-night shopping hours, one of the best Halloween ads I’ve ever seen.


This Carpet-Covered Couch Is Uncomfortable Brilliance

If, like me, you’re a little OCD, the thought of a carpet with a giant kink in it is the kind of thing that keeps you awake late at night, sweaty-palmed and slightly nervous. That’s why I’m not entirely sure if I could live with this carpet-kink couch, even if it is a clever piece of design.


A $45,000 Lounger That Automatically Turns To Track The Sun

It’s often said the world isn’t fair, and nowhere is that more obvious than when you’re sprawled out on a lounger trying to soak up a little sun, and it won’t stop moving across the afternoon sky. You can write all the angry letters to Neil deGrasse Tyson you want, but the only solution to the problem (besides getting up and moving) is this $US45,000 lounge chair from Remmus that automatically rotates so you’re always getting a full blast of sun.


This Levitating Furniture Isn't The Finale Of A Vegas Stage Show

Were Penn & Teller to finish their popular Vegas magic show by simply rolling out this furniture set and relaxing while reading the paper, there would still be a standing ovation. Because Lago has managed to create the illusion that this couch, chair and coffee table are all floating — and you’ll want to believe, even if deep down you know it’s just a trick.
