    Read Part 1 here. Read Part 2 here. Our last day was spent at the IKEA Concept Centre in Delft. It is an actual IKEA store with learning and research spliced in. In here, IKEA studies customers’ interactions with their products, floor displays and information. They conduct experiments to better the flow, engage the customer and look into every small detail such as the floor directory to help customers find their way through the store. For the uninitiated, the first visit to IKEA can be harrowing – the crowd, the maze, the self-service-dunno-how. My first time, I felt sucked into a…

    As furniture becomes more and more tech-driven (e.g., USB ports, chargers, coolers, etc.) we can sometimes forget that claims to advancements in the basic sofa have been around for some time. Today's Westlaw's "Headnote of the Day" e-mail contained the case headnote "Sitting on a couch is not exercise." This got my attention and warranted a deeper look.The headnote comes from Stauffer Laboratories, Inc. v. F.T.C., 343 F.2d 75 (9th Cir. 1965).

  • 1960′s bathroom modernized with PRÄGEL, PERFEKT LIDINGÖ, & ÄDEL

    24 Oct 2014 | 1:37 pm
    Our bathroom was in need of an update! We had the original counter top, sink from 1961. While some may like mid century modern, it is not our favorite. We couldn’t do a new vanity because the cabinet is built in over some stairs and would need to be custom built. Before! I decided to give the built in cabinet a face-lift instead. I tore out the existing counter top and sink.I removed the cabinet doors too. I purchased 1 panel of 1/8″ birch plywood from the hardware store and cut it to match the dimensions of the cabinet. I stained it to match the ÄDEL Doors and nailed it to the…
  • Weekend Project: Burlap Mat for RIBBA Frame

    Craftivity Designs
    24 Oct 2014 | 11:31 am
    Materials: RIBBA frame in aluminium colour, Mod Podge The RIBBA Frame and Mat is attractive and simple as-is; but this quick update gave it a bit of texture for our “modern farmhouse” style bath. Begin by removing the mat from the frame and cut a piece of burlap about an inch larger (on each side) than the mat. Apply Mod Podge to the front of the mat and lay it face-down on the burlap to adhere. Once dry, cut a slit into each corner of the burlap. The slit should only go to the corner of the mat, which allows the burlap edges to be folded around the back of the mat. Again, use Mod…

    Materials: ALGOT shelves I needed a white metal supply air outlet for my HVAC system. Commercial items are usually rather expensive, nevertheless I did not find something I really liked for my environment. Then I stumbled upon a couple of Algot shelves at the as-is corner for €1 each, they were just perfect! So I made a custom wood plenum (casement) for each one and installed them over my drywall ceiling. Four neodymium magnets keep them steadily in place from inside. You can hardly notice them, they’re easy to pull off for cleaning and, most important, they’re hacked!

  • Federal Circuit Clarifies Test for Obviousness of Design Patents

    2 Oct 2013 | 10:35 am
    Who gets to decide when a design patent is obvious? There was some confusion on that topic until the Federal Circuit handed down its opinion in High Point Designs LLV v. Buyers Direct, Inc., No. 2012-1455 (Fed. Cir. Sept. 11, 2013) (a copy of the opinion can be found here).In the opinion, the panel of Judges O'Malley, Schall, and Wallach confirmed that the obviousness of a design patent is to be determined through the eyes of an "ordinary designer," not an "ordinary observer."
