  • "I have a few more questions, but more to do with availability internationally. 1) Will I be able to get a 240V version for use in Australia?2) Can you switch the measurements to metric? I wouldn't know my 11/32's from my 23/64's if my life depended on it. Give me 10, 15, 25mm any day.  "

  • "As a furniture/industrial designer I don't see why these guys have to lie like this. There's no shame in saying you use veneer. With mass deforestation of old growth timbers we can't keep mass producing credenzas from solid timber for billions of people in the world. With our pieces we stay honest. If it's veneer, let the customer know. We use ply moulded shells and solid timber frames but for tops of desks and tables using solid timber is quite often wasteful excess. A veneer top will often give a flatter surface and can still be fixed if dented. "

  • "I am an industrial designer working for a medium sized national furniture company in Australia. I have been asked by clients to copy other people's pieces and what I always say is "why do you like this piece? What is it about the chair/table that appeals to you?" After determining this, we can design something inspired by, say the angular rectilinear forms of the Yaffe Mays Sligo. The new design could capture some of the essence of the original while keeping your conscience clean and  giving the students something that won't be criticized as a rip off in their portfolio."

  • "Hmm. I'll stick with my $35 cast iron tortilla press. No pods required, no electricity required and if it breaks, it can be melted down and turned into something else useful.http://chilemojo.com.au/tortilla-press-8-inch.html"

  • "This seems like the absolute cat's pyjamas if it does what is shown in the video.Looking forward to some youtube review vids to see how it really works after the marketing glitz is removed. I'm sure there were moments when they had to edit out something not cutting correctly. Personally, I'm just not convinced that such a magic box product would work 100% as advertised. I'd love to be wrong, though. I might even have to reconsider my next workshop purchase.  "

  • "What strange timing...I saw your fittings on a friend's dining table which we were moving on the weekend. Made in Vietnam so most probably Scheulenburg.I am also a furniture designer working in Australia and would love to try out some of your fittings. "

  • "Excellent article Nick. I like your suggestion to write a product's purpose on the wall and keep going back to it. Something that many designers could benefit from."
    on: The Dawn of a Modern Mechanical Era
  • "As an industrial designer, I often look at these articles and wonder why someone would bother putting this sort of thing on  a design website. I think it's more suited to juxtapoz or cool hunting, and would be classified under the 'art-design' heading like much of the Campana Bro's works. It is interesting as a thought exercise, but what value do these objects bring? Most of them look like something that wouldn't be out of place in contemporary art museums around the world. Will these objects be useful? Will they end up in landfill?If the designers can use what they have learned from this to discover solutions to the problems they are addressing with these works, then maybe "design" will eventuate rather than contemporary art or abstract discussion. "
    on: Cranbrook's Fine Design for the End of the World
  • "From my experience watching cheech and chong, blunts are usually fatter in the middle and taper at each end if done correctly. It does have a very "beachy" feel, for want of a better word with the organic wave form aesthetic. Very cool. "
