Walking Table by Wouter Scheublin

It is definitely tough to be a design blogger. The man in question behind the creation of a cool, walking table is designer Wouter Scheublin. The new Walking Table is quintessentially Dutch, exceptionally functional, aesthetically pioneering, and yet appealingly strange table that produces strong opinions. The table is a cautiously crafted piece of furniture, which shows the exquisiteness of mechanics. It comes to life when pushed and mimics an innate walking motion, mystifying our perception of the typically static piece of furniture. As the name suggests, the Walking Table is human-powered, integrating a mechanical linkage. It is accessible in a walnut edition of only 8 pieces, each delicately crafted from selected materials.

Weird and Wacky Cartoon inspired Furniture By Straight Line Designs

Straight Line Designs is a one-of-a-kind workshop that has been operating out of Vancouver, British Columbia for the past 25 years. In addition to installations, sculptures and private commissions, designer Judson Beaumont and his staff of eight full-time craftspeople have designed and constructed a variety of custom-built furniture and projects for public institutions and children’s exhibitions throughout North America and abroad. Focused on quality and custom design, Judson’s studio stays far away from mass production. Our workshop’s building capacity is restricted but Jud’s designing ability is not!
