The Rocking Chair That Would Not Rock

This chair is a concept that artist Cory Barkman has been working on. While the appearance of the chair gives an impression that it would be a rocking chair with an unstable base, it actually is a fixed chair that has been secured properly to a 3/8-inch steel base plate. The seat itself has been covered in Brazilian cow hide, while the back of the chair and the pillow wear leather.

Daisy Garden Rug

Canadian creative studio Joe Jin Design Company has designed this attractive rug that looks much like a piece of landscape from a garden. The rug conceals a fastening system that allows the Daisies to be added/removed/arranged at 84 different locations around the rug. If the real product looks anywhere near as good as the one in the image, and it is comfortable to sit at, we’ll say this rug is a keeper.

Headlights Take Things A Bit Too Literally

Going fully by the literal meaning, these lamps by Brooklyn-based artist Stephen Shaheen take form of a humanoid, only to replace their heads with light bulbs. That’s how they become headlights. The artist’s idea for the project titled “American Socket” is to explore the border between art, design and architecture with this creation. When arranged properly, the headlights appear to be reaching out to the power source, apparently in the search of illumination, or enlightenment, as we humans would like to call it. Well, this turned philosophical quickly.

Single Seat Electric Helicopter Hopes To Shine Till The Jetpack Arrives

While we wait for a personal flying transport in the shape of the jetpack, we guess humanity could use a few detours on the way like this single seat electric helicopter. Manufactured by Japanese company Hirobo, the HX-1 helicopter could be seen as a step towards functioning, flying transport. It can fly for speeds up to 62mph, and stay airborne for nearly 30 minutes, which probably should take care of numerous individual flying needs.
