Thursday Design Bits: the return of design

Australia / Consumer Guide / Culture / Design / Europe

There is a pleasure to rediscovering: It is like re-engineering our memory.

Here are some great examples of  incredible design pieces revisited:

 

In the sprit of our Tuesday post, the first design item is Ikea's 1956 Lövet table, renamed Lövbacken

Conceived originally by Gillis Lundgren, the table was made to fit in a car – flat-packed.

Form followed function. Made of a leaf-shaped top in poplar veneer and three detachable legs with a stylish gold finish, the Love(t) table is back! 

More on this story in Dezeen.

 

To keep in mind the relaunch of Tony Parker's capsule collection in an exclusive collaboration with WORKSHOPPED. More on this Australian legend here.

 

Two great architect designs are also being revisited:

Finn Juhl, a Danish architect and modernist was celebrated with special exhibitions all over the world throughout 2012.  'Baker sofa' from 1951 has been relaunched by Danish One Collection.

And finally, The Tongue ChairArne Jacobsen’s second completed chair design dating back from 1955 is now being introduced by HOWE. Reinforced structure, same design. Complete slideshow and article on DWELL.
