Magnificently epic work Malin. Now I want one for my house.

Håll i dig för här kommer mina kommentarer om din skapelse.
För det första tycket jag att “hyllan” är en rolig och helt galen
skapelse, och jag tror inte att man riktigt greppar hur mäktig den
måste vara i verkligheten. Den är ju fotograferad lite uppifrån så
perspektivet krymper ihop den lite.

Men jag är inte helt och hållet förtjust i pjäsen. För mig är den lite
rörig i formen. Det är något med de där sidohyllorna som jag inte
gillar. Förstår ju att det blir mycket mer plats för böcker men jag
tycker att de tog bort något av den fina upprepade formen i steg/
hyllplanen, och när du nu har de där sidohyllorna, varför inte fortsätta
ända ner???

Som jag skrivit tidigare här någonstans tycker jag att det skulle ha varit
intressant att se flera sådana här hyllor stå bredvid varandra, kant i kant,
men då gäller det ju att det är en öppen sida..

Kanske formen på hyllan skulle framträda mer distinkt om hyllan var målad i stället för trären…

Det kommer mera 😉

Sen till sittplatsen. Den tycker jag ser lite krystad ut. Är det verkligen skönt att sitta i det där upphängda “bussätet”???

Metalldetaljer gillar jag skarpt. De där trianglarna under hyllorna är läckra..

Kom ihåg nu att jag bara utövar kritik utifrån bilderna här på sidan. Och missförstå mig rätt, även om jag låter kritisk. Jag tycker att du har gjort en fantastisk skapelse, men jag är ju en kritisk och missmodig person så jag har ju invändningar… 🙂

I love it. Do you have one for sale?

Thank you Tailoranne.

I do not have one made up but if you are seriously interested I would be happy to discuss it with you.
Just give me an email when you can.

Wonderfully thought out piece; if I still had kids @ home, I’d have bought one yesterday… seriously, could it be flat-packed, and produced by IKEA?
Your DesignByDarwinism idea’s intellectually interesting, but it sounds like it might distance you from your work, as in “design-at-arm’s -length”. Don’t be afraid to put your heart into your designs! Great work, keep at it! 🙂

Thank you!
I do feel that it is good for a designer to not have all the power in a product development, that power should lie with the user. That is what this methodology is providing, a way for the designer to truly serve the user and allow them to have the final say.
I’m quite excited about this and really do not feel that I’m distant from the work, quite the opposite.
I’m very glad you like it, the product was not meant for children, more for playful adults.

Hello Jane!

Well…. I was supposed to have samples made for London but there was a small miss in communication… when I needed them the makers were in germany.
When I get money again I will try to get them done and sent to you all.

Sorry for all of this.

Creationist and Darwinists

Can any body tell me? Who has made the perfect, mathematical and complex laws of Physics, laws of Chemistry and laws of biology , complex reproductive system in human and animal and plants ?. Scientists are only discovering these laws and in through obeying these law making some imperfect or semi perfect things. Yet the scientists have discovered a tiny part of the Creator’s innovative world. 99% yet to be explored. Keeping in view only a stupid or illogical persons can deny the perfect, and the wise Creator.

The Darwin has proposed a theory not fact . His tautology could not be proved by any undoubtedly/real true scientific evidence/fact. After studying 10,000 fossils, Harun Yahya (click here to explore) a Turkish biologist has challenged all Darwinists of the world to produce a single intermediate fossil, he will pay US$100 billion . He has proved that every species appeared in perfect shape and disappeared and new specie appeared in perfect shape. No incomplete bird can survive and incomplete eye can see. A half build eye and half build wing cannot see and cannot fly.

Survival of the fittest? Why love existence? Why a mother dies for her child?, Why A perfect family system of Honey bee functions?. Why Peacock beautiful colors appeared?. Darwinists have failed miserably to explain the facts of creation. So fact of existence of creator of a perfect, very beautiful and complex creation is just like Sun on the sky but blind cannot see.

Indeed Creation and ordering of the universe is seen as an act of prime mercy for which all creatures sing God’s glories and bear witness to God’s unity and lordship. According to the Islamic teachings, God exists without a place. According to the Qur’an, “No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision. God is above all comprehension, yet is acquainted with all things” (Qur’an 6:103)

I do believe that you have misunderstood my work. Although I am interested in Evolutionary theory and I’m an Atheist.
This project is about PRODUCTS, such as chairs, coffee mugs and lamps. I am sure we can agree that “God” does not design these but rather us product designers.
Furthermore I’m having to inform you that the examples you gave are not very good ones. There are several animals that have Imperfect eyes that have not yet evolved to the level of our eyes but still can tell the difference between light and darkness. Compared to not having any eyes this is a clear advantage. Remember, in the land of no arms, the one armed man is king.
To say that fossils are “fake” or not proof of evolution is strange and I will not even go there in this discussion.
In regards to birds with incomplete wings and eyes there are a multitude of examples, I recommend reading Richard Dawkins books. They are really informative and well written.

I am thankful that you decided to comment on this, you have given the Blog the first religious perspective so far. Thank you for that, it will create some extra colour in my research

It is good, swedish approach to wood. Innovative and still really simple. Something what I like. As I can see it can perform role of some nest where we can feel to being covered by the construction and then secure – and still having look for surroundings. Openness of view and clearance are something fabulous. Upstairs, there we can observe and tower above the surroundings. I assume the feeling during reading a book on such construction would be really different comparing to typical way.
Of course, in the while of writing this comment we are after iPad premiere. Maybe all of these shelves will be needless soon.
I suppose majority of the components will be achievable at IKEA store worldwide. For example I can recognize the conjunctions of the girders.
