Restless Chairacter

March 20, 2009


“The chair is made of a regularly solid material, while the joints and the skin of the chair are made of rubber. You may bend and turn any way you wish, without breaking or busting.
The design is said to have been inspired by an old grandpa’s chair that had become loose and creaky. This chair is for people who move around a bunch.”

A little boy who had been bullied and constantly being shot with rubber bands retreated to his lair only to emerge with an instrument of sheer torture to teach his bullies a lesson. Sounds like a story from Batman…
Composed of 479 pieces, the Disintegrator shoots rubber bands up to 22 feet at a blistering rate of 40 per second. Its 24 revolving barrels hold up to 288 standard-sized #36 bands, and the gun can be fired from a tripod, a table mount or from the hip.

Laser cut neoprene molded to form the ‘airflow’ cushion structure.
For the light fitting itself, it is held in a plastic cylinder and encased in a rubber foam structure. The structure is squashable which is a protective feature for the light fitting and adds a great tactile appeal.

Sensual materials

Lauren Moriarty designs and manufactures products which explore the potential of pattern, materials and 3-dimensional textiles. “Femine interiors are about more than pretty pastels and traditional floral prints, while patterns and colour is important. The simple sophistication of white is also appealing, with textures like lace and pleats adding interest. Sensuality is the key so choose tactile and intriguing materials that cast beautiful shadows.”

 

Her Noodle Block range of lighting, cushions and interior cubes came from a fascination for the effects that can be created when a pattern is put into repeat. Each structure can be squashed and bounces back to its original form. These are products with great visual and tactile appeal.

Prison Pen

March 2, 2007

 

The prison pen is made from a soft rubbery material that bends under the slightest pressure, making it virtually impossible to do lethal damage with it. It’ as close as you can get to a stab-resistant non-lethal weapon whilst still providing the subject with a workable ball point to write with.

1) I am sure if the prisoner is motivated enough, he can do anything with just about any object in the room…
2) Why are they selling a prison pen to the public??? To save yourself from the school bully maybe…
