Paged Meble – Omni desk

Paged Meble

Omni desk

The very important element of the Omni collection was the desk. The idea was to create a small, minimalist desk for a home office with functional storage cabinets and drawers.
In order to check the needs of users, we have used social media, where we asked people whether they like the desk with open or closed lockers. Thanks to a multimedia survey conducted on facebook, we have reached over 30,000 people.

 

The users chose a desk with closed lockers, so we designed this version.

Due to the small size of the desk, the desk can also function as a dressing table. Moreover, it’s very easy to adapt to any interior. The challenge we faced was to design a niche where the cable or power supply could be hidden.
Additionally, thanks to ergonomic analysis, desk drawers were designed to not interfere with the user while sitting and also to help to organize the workplace quickly.
Omni Desk has rounded oak legs and a desktop which has distinctive split. The niche is made of solid oak, while the desktop is white. According to recent observations and trends, people prefer bright spaces and bright colors which help lighten flats, especially small ones. In addition, the desk box modules can be moved to different place.

Aldo – Paged

It was the Paged furniture factory that commissioned us to design Aldo. Jadwiga Husarska-Sobina had already created several award-winning chairs (X-Chair, Boomerango, Polonia). Aldo itself is the 50th chair in Jadwiga’s portfolio.

 

We began the designing with work meetings and briefings with the employees of Paged responsible for the creation of the new project. Together we have established project objectives and selected the personnel to oversee the project.

 

The chair has been designed by the designing team consisting of Jadwiga Husarska-Sobina and Magdalena Paleczna.

 

Choosing the material for Aldo was the key stage of the creative process. After a detailed analysis of the available solutions, the designers decided on beech wood.

 

Aldo owes its distinctiveness to the properties of beech wood. The chair has been designed in such a way, that the legs and the backrest be made from a single piece of wood.

At the same time, the seats are easily stackable. In this way, the furniture occupies little space when not used, allowing the maintenance personnel to clean the surfaces in a comfortable way and save space when being transported. It is of particular significance in the case of designing products for contract markets.

Owing to the used beech wood, Aldo is light and handy.

 

When designing Aldo, the designers combined Paged’s expectations, the classical principals of design, and their own idea of giving it a bentwood form. The chair corresponds to Windsor chairs in a smart way – both the pieces of furniture have backrests that spread to create the shape of a peacock’s tail.

 

The Aldo chair is hand-manufactured in the famous Paged factory of bentwood forms in Jasienica.

Luna EMG

EGZOtech

Luna EMG

The creation of Luna EMG, the first ever robot adapted to work with people suffering from neuromuscular diseases was possible owing to a very close cooperation between the creators: the EGZOTech company and Husarska Design Studio. Our team was responsible for the robot’s ergonomics and appearance.
Husarska_Luna
The robot is intended for a specific target group: patients and rehabilitators. That is why the design team began the works with interviewing these two groups. The planning of the robot’s functionality was based on learning their needs and expectations.
In order to ensure the desired ergonomics, the designers have paid many visits to physiotherapists at their workplace. Hence, using Luna EMG for everyday duties is not at all problematic.

At the same time, the EGZOTech team of engineers was perfecting the applications enabling a patient to play computer games when going through rehabilitation. It is an innovation on a global scale.

The prototype, developed by Husarska Design Studio, had been intensively tested by the target groups. It was only when rehabilitation with the use of Luna EMG started bringing the desired results that it was decided to begin the production of the robot’s final version.

Luna’s housing is made of polyester resistant to various chemical agents and is ideal for hospitals. It is equipped with handles that serve for transportation and a slim, weighted down base. In this way, we were able to replace the initial 1,5 metre long arm with the 60×50 cm base which can easily fit into a transportation case.
It is vital for the Luna’s sales model which is based on long-term rental contracts with hospitals and rehabilitation centres.
Luna has been awarded with the prize of Fundacja Górnośląskiego Funduszu Śląska Rzecz, and became the winner of the second edition of the “Think Big” UPC Business programme for entrepreneurs, as well as many other awards, such as: Brussels Innovation Gold Medal for young inventors.

Hoppa for Bellamy

 

The Bellamy company, a well-known and respected across the whole Europe producer of children’s furniture has asked us to design a collection for them.

 

Who knows it best, how a perfect bed, desk or wardrobe for a child should like?

 

Parents, of course. That is why we approached them first when beginning the works on the new collection. Through numerous interviews, we have gained priceless remarks and suggestions.

 

What did the parents expect the most? Furniture that is durable and would serve children for as long as possible. But how can parents’ wishes be granted, if their kids grow so fast?

 

Intensive brainstorms in our office brought us the desired result: a perfect combination of children’s needs, parents’ dreams and our ideas.

 

The most important feature of the Hoppa collection is that each of the pieces of furniture grows along with the child. As the months go by, the furniture can be modified in such a way, to serve new purposes, adequately to the new needs of the room’s inhabitant.

 

The bed can be turned into a couch. The ladder at the bed can serve as an organizer or a wall for hanging containers. The sides of the bed will become the top of a desk. The clothes rack in the wardrobe can be lifted and adjusted to the child’s height. In this way, Hoppa becomes furniture both for toddlers and older kids.

 

The additional shelf for an electric nanny is a solution offered in response to parents’ expectations. First, the shelf is mounted to the bed and then can be used as a wall shelf.

 

The whole collection features slightly rounded shapes, inspired by Scandinavian style. Northern influence also reveals itself in the pastel colors of the furniture.

 

The collection is complemented by the bookcase, chest of drawers and wardrobe, all designed by us. All furniture from the Hoppa collection is rounded, thus being safer for a child. It is made of birch plywood and white furniture board. It is vital for a child’s balanced development that it have contact with natural wood and other natural materials from the earliest years.

 

All the paints used for the finishing of the Hoppa collection have proper approvals, rendering them suitable for kids.

Magsy – Bag

The assumption of the project was to design a walking bag which not stigmatizes mothers or fathers. The bag can be used by both men and women thanks to its neutral look and colors.

 

During the project, the parents tested the prototypes of the bag. Their comments and ideas were included in the further design.

 

The main functions of Magsy are capacity, compactness and good quality materials with neat finishing.

 

The bag was designed for active parents who like to go for walks or trips with their children. Despite the small size of the bag, it is possible to pack many accessories which are necessary to take for a walk or longer trip.

 

So far every walk or long trip involved picking up several bags. Therefore Magsy’s biggest advantage is its capacity. It is possible to pack even a 15-inch laptop, so the bag will work perfectly for working parents. On the sides of the bag are rubber bands that hold bottles.

 

Magsy has many useful pockets and compartments. The bag includes a changing mat that is easy to clean. In addition, a separate sachet can be zip up to the bag. It has a special strap, allowing to put it on the arm. Therefore parent can bring the most precious things (phone, wallet, keys) when they leave for a moment from the trolley.

 

The bag can be held in a hand, worn on the shoulder. It can also pin it to a trolley or clip the straps and use as a backpack. The form of the backpack is a great solution because it allows the parents to take the baby to hands.

The main functions of the bag and its ability to transformation are presented in a stop motion made by Panopticon Films.

QBL – furniture system for the ski rental

The collection of furniture designed for the ski rental includes: service desk, check-in, ski rack and benches.

 

The inspiration for finishing the furniture were alpine huts made of natural materials such as wood or stone.

 

The greatest challenge for us was to consider very difficult conditions that furniture will be exposed to such as very high intensity of use, high risk of scratching through sharp ski edges as well as ubiquitous water.

 

The design assumption was the use of appropriate materials that guarantee durability and high quality of furniture. We used stainless steel, waterproof plywood and top quality veneer with a natural wood structure. The top was covered with milled rubber, non-slip. We decided on a minimalistic form of furniture, which gives the possibility of personalization of selected fronts and finishes.

 

Thanks to functional solutions, we have established and accelerated the operation of ski rental services. We have created a place for assembly tools or an innovative solution for draining water from the worktop.

Paged Meble – Omni chair

So far our client has been producing furniture for houses interiors, mainly for bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms, and also hotels. And this time we were asked to design a collection dedicated to the home office.

 

The assumption of the project was to use the technological possibilities of the factories in Jasienica and Sędziszów, which belong to our client. Moreover, we wanted to use soft forms such as comfortable upholstered seats and natural materials.

 

First of all, we have proposed a plywood chair because the plywood has cushioning properties, so the backrest fits perfectly and supports the entire surface of the back.

 

Omni chair has slightly curly finishings. It has three bases to choose from. A rotating office base, rotating base on four stationary legs and stationary base with wooden legs and lower backrest.

 

Personalization possibilities make the Omni not only an office chair but also a hotel chair or restaurant chair. The version with wooden legs perfectly warms up the home interior.
