Sceptre unveils new TV stands that require no tools to assemble

Over the years, I have built more than my share of those cheap unassembled TV stands, entertainment centers, and desks. You almost need an engineering degree to figure out exactly how the assembly process goes and you need several tools along with some glue to build the stuff.

Furniture designed using heavy cardboard tubes

Furniture designed using heavy cardboard tubes

I remember all the tubes my teacher had in her closet when I was in first grade. The heavy duty tubes look like what you find inside wrapping paper, but they are made from a much stronger cardboard that is as hard as wood.

Wilkhahn ON: seating as “supple as thighs”

Wilkhahn ON: seating as “supple as thighs”

If you eyed up the flexible spine of the Herman Miller Setu earlier this week and thought "nice, but I'd like more rotational combination of axial forwards, backwards and sideways movements" then you're obviously bizarrely well-read on ergonomic seating and probably already know what we're about to say.  If, however, you know little about pivotal sections but would just like to sit for a few hours without ending up stiff, then Wilkhahn's ON chair may be the answer.  Unlike regular task chairs, which mainly permit forward/backward movement, ON has an artificial hip-joint with "two swing plates that are just as supple as thighs".
