Creativity make things amazing!

Good day to my friends here! I would like to say happy holiday to all the Malaysian as today is Wesak Day! Here, I would like to share a video which shows how can we fully utilize our living space through creativity. You will found that creativity and innovative really make things great!

From here you will found that furniture design no longer stay in 2D sketching. Due to the trend of how flexible the furniture can be transform nowadys to perform multifunction within a narrow space, most of the time you will need to design it in 3D to ensure the occupied space, mechanism, and its functionality. Don't you agree with me?

Monday Glance Time #6 - Flexibility and Extendibility

Ladies and gentlemen~ welcome to my Monday Glance Time, I'm Tyler here. Today I'm going to give you something about Flexible and Extendible. Due to the increasing of population, the earth's resources become more and more insufficient including the living space. Therefore, flexibility and extendibility is one of the current trend for product design. If you pay more attention, you may found that there's lots of furniture designed in great flexibility and extendiblity available in market, for us to better manage our limited living space. Let's look at them~~
FlexibleLove - Demo 1, Demo 2 - this is definitely a great and revolution design, its size is smaller than 1 normal chair, but cup to 16 persons may sit on it!!
UberStix - This is an amazing toy which is made by recycled materials, and it is a great competitor to Lego~
XPand - It is an extraordinarily simple and yet complex design principle, which allows the actual wood of the table to expand and flex due to the slits in the wood itself.
Capstan Ilona expanding table - It is kinda artistic transformation for its expanding process~
Walking Table - You may move your table easily without causing much energy, because the table is able to walk.
