Charming And Airy Oslo Apartment With Mid-Century Furniture

Mon, Feb 23, 2015 | Modern home designs

This charming Oslo apartment belongs to graphic designer Steffen Olsen and his partner. The interiors used to be gloomy and dark but white paint helped them to change into light and airy; mid-century furniture has carefully been selected throughout the apartment. There are a lot of colorful touches and fun details that create a mood; I love the use of industrial pieces that aren’t too rough and perfectly continue the décor theme. There are some glam touches like works of art and little statuettes that add fun and chic to the apartment. So, the space was turned into a playful, light and inspiring one, these guys really know what to do!

Stone Foam Stool: Looking Hard And Being Soft

Wed, Feb 18, 2015 | Chairs

The perception, interaction and contradictions are brought together in the Stone Foam Stool by designer Matthijs Kok. This stool looks hard but it is unexpectedly soft as adding clay grains and pigment to liquid soft foam gives the expanded foam a raw stone texture. During expanding, the stone foam takes over the shape of the mold. The clay granules are soaked from the casting and hereafter the stone texture appears. Finally, the casting is finetuned with multiple gray shades for a more natural result and the chrome legs are attached to the seat. So, don’t let the chair deceive you – it’s as soft as a baby’s backside!
