  • "Considering the number of already existing wheels that have an equally aestetically pleasing design, it is a mystery why Apple did not contact one of these suppliers and just buy one of their standard solutions. Maybe some of the savy wheel manufacturers are going to start marketing their existing solutions for furniture to Apple owners and throw on a nice Mac OS premium on top. However, should'nt the real question here be: in what user scenario are you going to need wheels under your over-priced tower Mac? Surely you would have an iMac, Mac-Mini or Macbook if you needed something more portable? Are wheels for tower PCs now going to be the next accessory trend after neon lights, external GPUs with quad-copter fans or those bloody ugly Pewdie-Pie gaming chairs!?This has to stop. Surely it would be cheaper just to call Dieter Rams in at this point rather than continually doing a poor job of borrowing from him?"

  • "How will this ship / transport? You have a very heavy and fragile marble top that needs a wooden frame crate to protect this part alone. Then you have a large volume of cork that cannot be dismantled or folded flat. Finally you have a simple dowel wooden frame that needs to be glued or screwed together to be strong enough to hold the weight of the marble top. Harvesting stone is in no way environmentally friendly, even if the cutting can be done by water-jet. The dowel frame or the cork needs to go, keep it simple and don't waste materials if you want to be environmentally aware. Its a very bulky design that would be expensive to transport and therefore not very economic to produce or sell."

  • "I absolutely love the work of ICON and would love to see their prduction live. I think there certainly are some great lessons to be learnt from their work, but bear in mind that what they do is not for the masses but very much a niche market who can afford it. What they do with cars is basically what a lot of furniture upholsterers and joiners are already doing with old valuable furniture. It would be interesting to see what ICON could do with a moden budget car like a VW Up or Toyota Aygo that is basically built to a budget and not expected to last 40 years."

  • "We already have larger versions of these in Denmark (which I believe are made in Poland or Sweden). They make a big difference when you have a load on your bike such as a child in a seat or cargo bags on both sides of the rear wheel. The longer "bench-like" design can be used by up to 3 cyclists, but usually the first cyclist who arrives at the stand takes up the who space by parking in the middle. So maybe 3 smaller stands are better than one big long rail. Either way, this is a really good idea as it also prevents pedestrians stepping out on the bike path to cut a shortcut across the road at a junction."

  • "It is great to see a designer who has designed his furniture to match the raw material so well that there is zero waste. I wonder how comfortable these pieces are, but I guess you can easily apply some upholstered seat pads if necessary. The Chaiselounge / Rocker is just superb."

  • "Is every single element in the first picture cut and pasted into the scene? The scale is insane."

  • "It is great that this site has both praised and rightfully roasted Luigi Colani. That's what I call fair and balanced. I still love his crazy truck designs."

  • "I can't get enough of these. Great to see Verner Panton getting the treatment, as much as I love his beautiful insane furniture. I am sure there is enough material to fill a decent sized coffe-table book .... one that maybe come with its own bespoke stand or table that can ONLY be used to hold said book ;-)."

  • "If you are at all an environmentally concious coffee drinker, you do not use Nespresso products at all. The real problem here is the unecessary and wasteful method that their products work. All the recycled aluminium has to be collected and shipped to the factory making the bike, so that also has a CO2 cost. Why don't we just make coffee the right way and bikes the right way. There's no benefit or motivation for the consumer to use either product here. A good second hand bike and a kettle and coffee filter is all you need. See for example George Sowden's excellent simple coffee jugs that make better coffee. Then we only have to look at a way to re-use the old coffee and there are already several products than can be made from this material which Core77 has covered previously."

  • "I am sad to say this as a Dane and supporter of our furniture heritage and design tradition, but the international collector market who previously destroyed the art market are now destroying our furniture design heritage by pushing it further away from the reaches of normal people. Several Danish dealers have made very good money exporting our furniture out of Denmark and in the process have grossly pumped the prices up and sawn off the branch they were sitting on. It's painful and embarassing to observe. The good deals have been and gone, now only the "more money than sense club" can enjoy these pieces. They will no doubt just store them along with their classic car collection, early Damien Hirsts, and comic book collections - hoping the investments will continue to increase in value. This also makes Danish furniture brands with the rights to old designs go looking through the archives for forgotten (unsuccessful) old designs by the big dead names, rather than supporting the work of new living designers. In some cases they even redesign classics to meet modern market needs but still attach that old designer name (Arne Jacobsen never designed a number 7 chair as a barstool or childrens chair!). The bubble will burst around the same time we all run out of oak trees.Rant over and out :-)"
