So What Is SUPERGRAU’s KLOEZZE: Firewood For The 1% Or Jumbo Lincoln Logs… For The 1%?

SUPERGRAU's KLOEZZE  Designer FirewoodCore77 posted a hard-to-believe article about KLOEZZE designer firewood from German design firm SUPERGRAU. A KLOEZZE six-pack includes 3 pine, 2 oak and 1 cherry piece of designer firewood and sells for around $225. SUPERGRAU encourages potential customers to play with their KLOEZZE’s by stacking and sitting on them before setting them ablaze.

Roadside firewood sales.I’m sure KLOEZZE designer firewood burns like a champ but what I’d miss with it, besides the $225 I spent, would be the opportunity to negotiate and get a legitimate cord of wood from the roadside wood salesman and I’d miss the threat of spiders. If SUPERGRAU could figure out a way to introduce both of these features into the KLOEZZE experience, they might have another customer. Until then, I’m sticking with old-school.

SUPERGRAU KLOEZZE 6-packIf you get a chance, visit SUPERGRAU’s website. In my lifetime, I never thought I’d see an image of firewood sharing space with a magazine opened to a picture of a naked ass. At least I can check that off the bucket list… and now add it to my unbucket list. [Core77]

Vintage Suitcases Become Drawers In This Dresser From James Plumb.

Vintage Suitcase Dresser from James PlumbJames Plumb, artists James Russell and Hannah Plumb, work with overlooked and discarded items and designed these dressers using vintage suitcases as drawers in 2011. After some searching, we could only find one dresser more Jubbling than their vintage suitcase model. [BoingBoing]


Jason Lloyd Fletcher’s Genevieve Sustainable Side Table And Chair Made Out Of Vintage Belts. What The What?

Jason Lloyd Fletcher vintage belt made chair and tableJason Lloyd Fletcher used recycled vintage belts to build his Genevieve series of side tables and chairs. From his website:

“Genevieve is a series of handmade pieces representing luxury products with sustainable, ethical principles.”

Really? Sustainable and ethical? I’m sorry but taking a crapload of perfectly wearable belts and turning them into furniture does not sound very sustainable. Creating usable products out of things we normally throw out and you have something. Not belts!

So if you are lucky enough to be in possession of a Jason Lloyd Fletcher designed Genevieve side table or chair, please dismantle it and re-recycle the vintage belts. Congratulations, you now have a lifetime supply of vintage belts or future belt gifts for your friends and family.

Going a little further, you could also walk around town handing out belts to people who can’t, and want to, keep their pants from falling down. They’ll call you Belt-Man and you’ll be a local hero. [Inhabitat]


With Rabih Hage’s “The Leftover Collection” Desk/Dining Table, You Can Stub Your Toes And Your Knees On It.

Dupont Corian:  The Leftover Collection by Rabih Hage

The Leftover Collection Chair

Hey kids, dare you to crawl under this leftover chair...

Jubbling loves it when people figure out creative ways to reuse and recycle. We’re just not so sure about Rabih Hage’s “The Leftover Collection” in which he puts normally discarded DuPont™ Corian® countertop scrap to use into some slightly-functional furniture. The heavy-duty Corian leftover furniture is definitely durable and my guess is that it probably comes with a liability waiver. [Gizmodo]


‘3rd Leg’ Stools Made Out Of Normally Discarded Cow Bones

3rd Leg Cow Bone StoolLondon based designer, Ama Darko Williams, probably wasn’t aware of what “3rd Leg” could mean in the US but her stools are definitely Jubbling. They’re sustainably made out of 3 cow bones that are connected by rebar/steel rods and metal joints. My first thought when I read about the 3rd Leg cow bone stool was to suggest a playdate with Chicken Chair designer Sebastian Errazuriz. But Ms. Williams seems more focused on designing out of normally wasted product than sending a message about the food we eat. Dang! [FastCo.Design]
