The OpenBook Library Chair

While technology advances, and contrary to expectations, books are still loved. The OpenBook is a seat and a library that celebrates the printed form.
Its design represents an evolution from TILT’s original Library Chair which itself was designed for a Grade II listed building where shelving for books could not be installed so instead the books were incorporated into the chair design.
It is a comfortable reading space for those wanting a quieter moment, while also a showcase for books and magazines of any size and shape. At the same time the chair was to be open, exposing the user to others within the space allowing for serendipitous interaction.
The OpenBook Chair has a fully upholstered interior, including an upholstered side panel, offering additional comfort and sound insulation.

The Vessel Hammock Bathtub

Struck by the synergy between the shapes of two compelling symbols of relaxation, a hammock and a bath tub, Splinter Works were inspired to develop a piece that would provide the ultimate vehicle for total escapism. 
The peaceful experience of kicking-back in a hammock has been further enhanced by combining it with the immersive comfort of soaking in a hot bath. By literally elevating the experience of bathing into a suspended sculpture the bathroom has been reinvented as a contemplative sanctuary for artful relaxation.
Designed for use in a wet room, Vessel is suspended from the walls and does not touch the floor. It is fixed with stainless steel brackets that can be covered over, or left revealed. The bath is filled using a floor standing tap and the waste water released through the base into.by Splinter Works

Analog Memory Desk

A desk to record all the small items you write down once, 
but intend to forget tomorrow.
I've come to realize that I'm somewhat obsessed with how we remember the past. 
This is the latest installment in that series and a more serious attempt at furniture making. 
There are a hundreds of little things that we don't try to remember every year or 
even every week. Does the sum of all these tiny parts produce 
a new narrative on our lives?
1,100 yards of paper will record the lists, the phones numbers you call once, 
the pixel size of that box on that website, the street name of that business, 
and the long division you try to remember.
Made out of hard maple, butcher paper and a glass panel.

    Tumbler-  WHY SO SERIOUS??

    Tumbler was built due to two reasons, first it was easy and second it was amazing funny. One of the members went gag a about Dark Knight, and this year it is or Gumball. The idea was discussed with Parker Brothers Concepts. As you know when ideas come in, it becomes crazy and things become easy like magic. 
    Though the Tumbler has been created before and many movies and picture have been seen along with race track footage. The complex part was to create one which can last 3000 miles and road legitimately without losing it. The original prints couldn’t be achieved, yet the Parker Brothers Concepts have to do little work and fill the gaps.
