Here at In Your Kingdom, we show you some of the most important interior design trends and offer you tips and tricks on how you can improve the overall appearance of your own home.
These projects have been designed by Richard Clarkson. RC Studio started in 2013 as an experimental product, lighting and furniture studio, offering a wide range of innovative perspectives on traditional material idologies, the newest technologies and oportunities.
Distorting the ever-blurring lines between art & design, the studio uses processes & methodologies drawn from both disciplines.
1. The Cloud
“The Cloud” works like an interactive lamp and spearker system, designed to mimic a thundercloud storm both in appearance as well as in sound inside your home. By using motion sensor, the cloud is detecting a person’s presence and creates unique lighting and thunder show according to their motion.
The system also features a powerful speaker system and has the capability to stream music from any Bluetooth compatible device. Multiple modes have been implemented inside the cloud, thus having options such as nighlight or music reactive modes.
2. The Cube
The Cube is a media system consisting of a large cube speaker and a small cube that acts as a remote control. The media system accesses the owner’s cloud-based music platform and specifically his or her playlists, such as on Pandora or Spotify. The owner then sets up the playlists via the smartphone app or computer to sync with the speaker cube. A playlist can be selected to play by changing the cube’s orientation or ‘rolling the die’ to shuffle. For visual feedback, the illuminated colors of both the large and small cube match and change, with each playlist having a unique color related to the style of music featured in the playlist.
3. The Cradle
By being named “Cradle”, this rocking chair epitomizes what the chair is all about. Having carefully chosen the materials for it’s creation, it is considered as non-toxic and natural as possible. It is all about creating a safe, comfortable and relaxing space in which the user can reach the highest level of calmness.
“The design was heavily directed by a synthesis of research into Autism and children with Rhythmic Movement Disorder (RMD) as well as safety, sustainability, function, and aesthetics. We had a strong focus creating a solution for sufferers of RMD but the chair is not exclusively for them and will bring relaxation, comfort, and calmness to anyone who uses it. “
4. Rain Lamp
“Continuing the studio’s nature inspired product line, the Rain lamp uses actual water to create a shimmering ripple effect. The inherent shape of the globe becomes a magnifying lens projecting the effect on the surface below. LED technology allows for mixing of light and water in ways that were never before possible. Rated to last over 100,000 hours the LED bulb is both stunningly bright and completely waterproof. A hidden pump circulates water from the pool and releases droplets that fall around the bulb. As the droplets fall upon the pool the light reflects on the surface and dances to the ripples. A wireless remote enables the user to specify both the intensity and frequency of the droplets within a given range. “
The nothing system uses only tension, friction & cantilever properties to support itself. This means, no screws, no bolts, no wire and no glue! This process was derived from the modular table but developed for light duty shelving applications. Designed to be quick to adjust and easy to assemble this system is the definition of efficiency.
There is a certain degree of magic and science in all things great, here the two work harmoniously together to create a unique piece. Comes in Copper and steel, with powder coating available for custom orders. Four Shelves & Max height of 5ft.
