Japanese Tattoo Table

The unfortunately named ‘Yakuza’ is a digitally tattooed wooden table by Reddish Studio. It looks like it’s part of a collection. We have no idea what the ‘digital tattoo’ process involves, but it definitely looks pretty cool. It’s made out of veneered MDF with some kind of digital printing technology.

Character – LED Sign Goodness

I’m a sucker for neon signs and the like. I coo like a childless female in her late 30’s who’s just been confronted with a adorable young tot every time i see a cool one in a design or antique store. I’ve been known to drool in public as I gaze in wonderment and envision said sign in my lounge room and/or glowing mysteriously behind my perfectly appointed dive bar. You may not understand why these emotions are stirred in my loins by such simple a thing as a glowing sign but you can probably understand why I made like a SNL sketch when I came across Character. Why has Character got my heart all aflutter? Well they...

The Making of: The Eames Fibreglass Chair...

Everyone knows the Eames shell chairs, right? Well if you don’t know it by name, you will definitely recognise the shape. This video shows the making of the Charles and Ray Eames Shell Chair. It was originally designed in 1948 as part of a competition to produce low cost furniture, but has since gone on to become one of the most recognisable pieces of furniture design. Apprantly they originally intended to use stamped metal, but it turned out to be too expensive. They ended up using fibreglass. It uses two basic seat designs, both available with multiple base options. These days you see them reproduced in different kinds of plastics, as well as fibreglass. The wood or metal...

Bathroom Cabinets

Designer Jethro Macey has taken on the usually bland world of bathroom cabinet design. His powder coated metal cabinet rocks a pretty classic look for a lockable cabinet except for a flourish in the top right hand corner that sets it apart from anything mankind has ever done. Well, at least in terms of bathroom cabinet design that the DEGOURGET team has seen. A window houses a small object that the designer’s site assures us has been carefully selected. You’d hate to have a carelessly selected toy on display after all. The spartan design “highlights the individual qualities and charm” of the various figurines on offer. There are six options available, a bird, cat, soldier, radio, flamenco and...
