Clamped Stool

The ‘Clamped Stool’ is a three leg knock-down stool, assembled with a single clamp based joint, integrated with one of the stools legs that locks the whole construction together, giving it its strength. The concept of the ‘Clamped Stool’ was born after I looked at some DIY furniture and thought to myself that they are not so simple to assemble and there is more desperation than satisfaction from the process of the assembly. I decided to design a knock down stool that the whole construction will be held on a single joint, familiar from the field of hardware tools and this way will be easy and intuitive to assemble and fun and satisfying at the same time/Daniel Glazman

named after the japanese word for steaming vessel, these side tables draw their shape and functionality from the stackable bamboo components of their namesake object's design. available in two sizes, each round structure features a column with a wooden hinge running along it, which allows various modules to be stacked, rotated and opened. like many of alonso's designs, these tables combine simple elements to render more complex structures, enabling users to adjust its movable components to explore proportion and spatial relationships. with a strong emphasis on how humans relate to the products, alonso says: 'for me it’s important that what I design makes its way into people’s hands and people’s homes. I would like my objects to be used, lived with and enjoyed/Tomas Alonso

This project aims to solve the problems around a traditional spout by providing a 'roof' for liquid to run underneath. Pouring from the spout on a teapot for example, it drips, liquid tends to gather around the edges creating limescale and it is a difficult shape to access for washing. The spout also faces upwards, offering an opening for any dust or particles to enter the vessel, when left on the table. Roofers solve these problems by removing the spout from the vessel and replacing it underneath the lid. The 'roof' has no opening, so protects the contents, while the curve pushes the liquid back into the vessel after pouring, which prevents any drips forming.
There are three types of object; jugs, a thermos and teapot. It works with any kind of liquid, without large solids; hot or cold water, milk, tea, coffee, orange juice (with bits), soy sauce, various oils etc.
It also makes the flow beautiful/studio koya
