    “To infinity and beyond!” Shrieked Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story as he quickly morphed and soared into action with those folding wings on his back. OK, that boring old desk isn’t going anywhere in a hurry. But what if it could be adapted and made flexible enough to become a sit stand desk? It’s not as far fetched as it sounds. Why you don’t always need to replace your existing desk Most people who decide they need the flexibility of a height adjustable desk will naturally assume that they need to buy a completely new desk and so get rid of their existing fixed desk.

  • Amateur – 1st IKEA Hack: SNIGLAR cot turned mini garage shelving

    30 Jul 2014 | 4:29 am
    Materials: SNIGLAR crib I’ve been wanting to sell this cot I’ve barely used since a years back, but being one without an adjustable height, plus its large size made it difficult for sale. Slashing price doesn’t bring much enquiries, mostly turned away due to the inconvenience of transportation. So. I decided to do my 1st hacking operation – use it as a shelf! The biggest challenge was finding the right size of board/plank that would fit neatly into the spines of the cot. After rummaging through my storeroom for scraps, I finally chanced upon a white board (older than…

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:49 am
    Materials: STOLMEN hook, STOLMEN mounting fixture with 2 holders I made a lamp using STOLMEN mounting fixture. For this hack you are going to need a wire with switch, an Edison screw (E27 here in Europe) and a lamp (I used an LED one bought in IKEA). First of all, I connected the wire and the Edison screw and put that construction inside the STOLMEN mounting fixture. I found using the thicker grommet from the set more convenient for fixing the Edison screw inside the STOLMEN fixture. The lamp is ready. Attaching the hook to the lamp allows using the final construction on variety of areas. I…

    My rental house’s master bathroom seriously lacked storage space, so I bought a simple BILLY bookcase and added a door to make it look nice. However, I still couldn’t find a good way to organize my cosmetics so that they’d all be easily accessible. Finally, after wandering around the IKEA bath fixtures department, I hit upon inspiration: the GODMORGON set of 3 acrylic storage trays. I purchased two sets of the trays. For a rack for the trays I used a kitchen cabinet lid organizer rack that I bought at a home goods store. I first used 3M Command Picture Strips to get the…

  • 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." What's the difference? A big one actually. The ordinary design test requires the court to engage in a more…
  • Copyright + Trade Dress = Solid Combination For Furniture Manufacturers

    17 Sep 2013 | 7:38 pm
    Furniture manufacturers have a varied arsenal when it comes to protecting their intellectual property. A single item of furniture can be protected by a utility patent (assuming there is functionality), design patent, copyright, and trade dress. If the item or its collection has a name, trademark rights may be available too. Even though there are many tools, the copyright and trade dress combination is a dependable pairing that provides a formidable offense.Amini Innovation Corporation ("AICO") recently deployed this one-two punch against McFerran Home Furnishings.

While the chances of this happening are low, the risk is just as high as in any other structure. As such, proper attention and care should be taken to ensure attendants can safely exit the building. The natural tendency for most people when faced with a life-threatening situation is to evade the danger zone, but in so doing, they often tend to injure those around them, especially in crowded venues.

  • Height Matters – Why You Need an Adjustable Chair

    OCU
    9 Jul 2014 | 6:42 am
    Adjusting your office chair allows you to change the angle of your hip joint while seated. The angle of your hip joint is one way to control the degree of the curve in your lower back. When you sit properly, muscles such as your quadriceps and hamstrings work properly- protecting you from back pain. Chiropractors stress the importance of adjusting your office chair to the correct height. When your chair is in the proper position, it can prevent muscle fatigue and numbness. In addition, ergonomic positioning keeps circulation issues and swelling at bay. Your feet should be flat on the floor…

One of the most popular material options is mesh. There are a number of benefits to buying a mesh office chair. A cool back = a happy back Ventilation The average office worker spends a large part of the day sitting in a chair.
