A KnollStudio classic, Jens Risom’s Amoeba Coffee Table is at once amorphous and crisply defined. The silhouette is certainly one of the defining styles of mid-century design. Features legs and apron constructed of solid maple hardwood and mortise and tenon joints with a choice of three table top finishes.
Because the workspaces of today require almost constant movement and varying tasks, Knoll has teamed up to design a workchair that fits the individual. For the ultimate in mobility and comfort. offers a new standard of comfort and unrestrained movement, supporting the range of postures and work styles typical of today’s workplace. Designed by Formway Design, Generation takes the idea of elastic design — where a product rearranges itself in response to its user — to a new level.
Current ergonomic research challenges the idea of a single, forward-facing posture, recognizing that maintaining one seated position for an extended time is not compatible with the body’s natural tendency toward movement. Created from a high performance elastomer, the innovative Generation by Knoll Flex Back facilitates changes in posture and position throughout the workday. The Flex Top extends the range of movement, allowing you to sit comfortably in any position (even sideways). The curvature of the chair’s figure 8 structure combined with the specific tension, pattern and unique properties of Flex Net enables side-to-side flex and ensures optimal localized support for shoulders and lumbar region. Responding to your range of movement, the Flex Top folds over the top edge of the back providing a comfortable armrest for side sitting or other informal postures.

This post showcases 60 dazzling and well designed fashion brochures, fashion catalogues and fashion magazines that not only have a unique image, but also exhibit quality principles of design.
Graphic Designer Yanko Tsvetkov recently created this series of mapped stereotypes. Each map plays up notions of what each nation thinks of every other respective nation in the EU. It’s a nice jab in the side of the EU, with the French map labeling Italy as ‘Noisily Friendly People’, Germany labeling Belgium as ‘Waffles’, and Italy labeling the UK as ‘Wembley Stadium’, it’s a fun little jab at perceptions. All the prints are available online.
