5 Designers You Didn't Know You Already Love

There's a certain style of minimalist interiors enjoying widespread popularity at the moment, particularly when it comes to the chairs we sit on. Unless you're a furniture history enthusiast, today's dining chairs and sofas might appear to epitomise contemporary living - but, in reality, a lot of what you're loving is merely lifted and reproduced from decades gone by.A perusal of New York's Museum of Modern Art's vintage interiors collection - or that of Paris' Pompidou Centre - today is not dissimilar to an afternoon spent browsing the homeware sections of your favourite high street stores. Here, you'll find world-renowned designer names you already adore but never knew.And so, when scouring Pinterest for your favourite styles, it helps to know your Thonet from your Eames or Bauhaus designs. You'll pay a pretty penny for the real deal, that's for sure, but if it's just the look you're after, there are plenty of vintage-inspired alternatives on the market - cultfurniture.com is your best bet online. Here are five designer names to add to your interiors vocabulary.In the 1950s, the American Eames brothers carved out a furniture niche that is now inescapable. "Getting the most of the best to the greatest number of people for the least" was their design philosophy.Most known for their Eames Lounge Chair, their fibreglass rocking chair and their bucket-style dining seats - white with the light wooden legs is the most popular - their creations have come back with a bang in the last five years. This duo became synonymous with mid-century modern furniture design during this era and, today, it's the work of the Eameses that's most often replicated. Vitra Eames Plastic Armchair, €473.10, and chairs, €380.47 each, from nest.co.ukFrom Austria, Thonet is most famous for his No. 14 Café Chair, typically referred to as the 'bistro chair' and one of the best-selling styles of the last 160 years. Introduced in 1859, this minimal bentwood shape with an arc of rounded wood at the back became hot property in the 1920s and '30s. The original chair was made using a unique steam-bending technology that took years to master. Most popular in cafés and restaurants to date, the No. 14 is fast becoming the top choice for dining chairs at home as we collectively shift away from the 'modern' styles that dominated the first decade of the 21st century. You'll also find the Thonet No. 14 chair at a lot of weddings; it's creeping up behind the Italian Chiavari chair in terms of formal- occasion popularity. Thonet style chair, €70.80, cultfurniture.comThe French designer's name you certainly won't be familiar with; the Tolix chair style, you definitely will. It was originally designed by Pauchard in 1934, after discovering that sheet metal could be dipped in molten zinc to prevent rusting but it wasn't until 1956 that the Tolix we see everywhere today was tweaked to perfection.These were conceived as all-weather chairs, perfect for outdoor cafés, and they were particularly popular because you could stack 25 chairs to a height of 2.3 metres. You'll find them in restaurants, bars and hospitals, but today, they're becoming more common in the home. Pauchard-style stool, €49.60, cultfurniture.comBauhaus is not a person but an actual school of design in Germany that remains incredibly influential to this day. Many of the students' creations are described simply as 'Bauhaus', but a whole host of significant designers earned their stripes here. Marcel Breuer was one of particular prominence, designing the recognisable Bauhaus Wasilly Chair. And Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and partner Lilly Reich designed the Barcelona Chair; a piece that, in 1929, would plant the seed for the forthcoming mid-century modern furniture movement. From 1923 to 1933, with founder Walter Gropius at the helm, the Bauhaus school was responsible for some of the most iconic furniture pieces to date. In fact, you can probably thank the school of Bauhaus for today's industrial-looking interiors as they sought to showcase the mechanics behind a piece of furniture, as opposed to hiding it. They've even been credited as the design inspiration behind many of Apple's technological offerings. As relevant today as they were back then, these guys were all about the merging of style and function. Bauhaus became known for chairs and geometric nesting tables that were timeless and futuristic - often composed of wood, leather, metal and glass.Barcelona Chair, €947, popfurniture.comHailing from Denmark, Wegner was one of the most celebrated furniture designers to emerge in the mid-20th century and is considered responsible for the Danish Modern Movement of the 1950s and '60s that's still adored today. His most famous piece is without a doubt the Wishbone Chair, which remains as popular today as when it first took hold in 1949. The chair is still referred to as a triumph of craftsmanship, with its characteristic Y-shaped back. It's an ultra-comfortable dining chair (or breakfast bar stool) with a simple, clean design. Interestingly, though it appears minimal to the eye, there were more than 100 steps involved in the process of the original chair. Designed for Carl Hansen & Son in 1949, it's available today. Carl Hansen Wishbone Chair, currently reduced to €759 at Arnotts, arnotts.ieOther designs to look out for are Noguchi's coffee table, George Nelson's desk, Florence Knoll's sofa and Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair. Their eye for sleek shapes and interesting detail continues to influence what we have in our homes well into the 21st century.Weekend Magazine

Dining Chair From a 2x4
Before I even realised the 2x4 competition was going on, I had a spare 2x4 and had been watching far too many of Paul Sellers' woodworking videos, which had filled my head with delusions of being a proper woodworker. It struck me that there are plenty of "rustic garden chair from a 2x4" type guides around but not many making something a bit more refined-looking. I wanted a project to practise my carpentry skills on so I thought why not see if I could make a decent-looking indoor chair from a single 2x4? Here's how I got on.The first step was to figure out a rough design for the chair and work out if I could actually get that much usable wood from one 2x4. Here in metric-land, rough softwood timber comes in pieces about 2440 x 95 x 45mm, roughly 8' x 1 3/4" x 3 3/4". When I talk about "2x2" or "2x1" I mean the resulting size from resawing that wood into halves or quarters, though it isn't that exact size in inches.The basic plan was to cut the wood into three sections: a 50cm piece I would resaw into two 2x2 for the front legs, a 90cm piece that would provide two 2x2 for the back and back legs, and a 100cm piece I would resaw into four 2x1 strips that would then form the rest of the frame- the seat sides, stretcher and back spindles/rails.I figured out that I could get three 30cm pieces, six 40cm pieces and three 20cm pieces which would let me build the frame of a reasonably sized chair. The third image here shows the cut list to provide those lengths.The part where I went totally off-piste was the back angle. The back of a dining chair should slope backwards at about 8 degrees, which sane people achieve by cutting a shape out of a larger piece of wood, but this would result in far too much waste. I had to figure out a way to take a single continuous 2x2 and introduce a shallow bend into the middle.I'm new to the whole chair anatomy thing- the final image shows the words I'm using for various parts of the chair, which I may well be using incorrectly but it beats calling them "vertical back part" and "horizontal back part".Step one was to cut the entire 2x4 into the lengths I wanted: 50cm, 90cm and 100cm. A tape measure, pencil and mitre saw made quick work of this.Once I had the lengths I needed I had to resaw them into thinner pieces. Any sane woodworker would use a table saw to do this, but I don't have a table saw so had to improvise. I fitted a 4 tooth-per-inch blade on the bandsaw as a general purpose blade can't cut this thickness of wood without clogging. I also clamped a feather board to the table and clamped both ends of the fence to try and keep it cutting as square as possible.It's important to get the cut in the middle of the wood so the two resulting pieces are the same size - to do this I made a short cut into one end, then measured the distance from the fence to the cut, and adjusted the position of the fence until the saw was going to leave the same amount of wood on both sides.When resawing long pieces of wood on a small bandsaw you'll end up with the weight of the board hanging off the far end, which is bad news. If possible, find an assistant to support the wood coming out of the cut to avoid having to reach around the blade. I wouldn't advise resawing this way, but if you do do it, pay attention and be safe!Once you've resawed to the width you need, cut the 2x1s down to the lengths from the cut list and you have your raw lengths ready for cleaning up.Cutting a thick piece of softwood on a cheap bandsaw with a coarse blade will probably result in wavy cuts. This job was no exception. I took the wavy wood over to a bench vise and planed down the cut surfaces until smooth. You could use a powered sander here instead of a plane, but be careful not to take off too much material.After dry fitting the back together to see how it looked, I began to feel like I was just creating another boxy square design without any of those decorative flourishes that set fine furniture apart from its rustic and flatpack cousins. Before I started assembling the chair I decided to:- Cut some cutouts from the spindles to make them more slender-looking- Cut a slight radius into the top and bottom railsTo make the cutouts on the spindles, I made a template out of a scrap of plywood, used this to draw the cut lines on the spindles and cut them out on the bandsaw. The template for the top and bottom curve on the rails could be drawn freehand but I cheated and cut this one on the laser cutter.I also clamped the three spindles together and sanded a slight radius into the ends with the nose of a belt sander, so they would be tapered slightly where they met the rails - this again makes them look a bit more slender, and also hides any slight misalignment as I was still honing my dowel-joint-making skills at this point.Continuing the little design touches, I decided to- Taper the bottom section of the legs down to a smaller "foot"- Chamfer the top parts of the legs into a pyramid so they don't just terminate in a square endTo chamfer the tops of the legs, I used a woodworking gauge to divide the top of each leg into thirds (like a tic-tac-toe board) and scribed a line 5mm down from the top edge, and cut the four bevels on the bandsaw.To taper the bottom of each leg, I needed to cut two wedges out on adjacent sides. To do this I had to mark and cut one wedge, then mark the second one on the cut face. Each wedge is 150mm x 15mm so the foot is about half the area of the leg which seemed to look like the right proportions.This part was done more as a personal challenge to myself and to see whether I could make the chair from a single 2x4 worth of wood. The sensible way to make a back leg with a bend in it would be to trace the outline on a piece of 2x4 wood and cut it out. I only had two straight 2x2s which I needed to introduce a bend into, so I decided to cut them at an angle and rotate one of the pieces, so I could glue them back together with a lap joint at an angle.The 90cm 2x2 wouldn't fit in the bandsaw and I couldn't reliably get a perfectly straight cut on it anyway. This is another part of the process which would have been much easier with a table saw. As it is, I had to clamp the 2x2 between two workbenches, and clamp a long straightedge to it at a 10 degree angle to guide the jigsaw. 10 degrees is more angle than I would have liked, but anything shallower would have made the cut impractically long - each cut was about 25cm long and took several minutes of painstaking jigsawing, but I ended up with a cut surface that was flat enough to glue up. These joints were the only ones that used screws, because just clamping them together resulted in the two halves sliding apart, so I drilled and countersunk two holes through each joint to accept wood screws that held the two halves in the right position while the glue dried.With all the pieces made, it was time to start assembling. The easiest way to assemble a chair of this shape is to glue the back together as one piece, and the front similarly, then attach the two parts of the frame together with the sides of the seat and stretchers. The first part to be assembled was the back. To make the dowel joints I'd drill two 28mm deep, 9mm diameter holes into the ends of the spindles and the sides of the rails, and glue a 50mm section of 9mm dowel into the joints. The holes were deeper than they needed to be to allow a little room for glue at the ends.Having done this the hard way, I'd recommend drilling the holes into the ends of the spindles, measuring their position and drilling the corresponding holes in the rails, because drilling accurately placed holes into the softwood end grain was tricky.Gluing the back together required a bit of ingenuity as I didn't have a single bar clamp long enough - I'd really recommend you figure this sort of thing out before starting as it's quite stressful trying to improvise clamping arrangements while the glue is drying!I also drilled the holes for the stretcher, but didn't glue it up on its own. I made sure to drill the holes in the ends of the side arms of the stretcher so they were pointing straight forward/back in the chair, which made assembling the frame much easier than if they were drilled straight into the ends.Right. Take a deep breath and mentally prepare yourself. Lay everything you need out where it's accessible: a glue pot, spreader stick, lots of paper towel for wiping up squeezeout, enough dowels of the appropriate lengths and all the frame pieces.Glue the holes in the stretcher, insert dowels and fit it together.Place the back of the chair on the workbench facing up, glue all the holes and insert dowels. Glue the protruding ends of these dowels, and fit the stretcher onto the lower set of dowels. Glue up the seat sides and fit them onto the upper dowels.Add glue to the exposed holes in the side parts you just added, insert and glue up the remaining dowels, and fit the front legs onto those. Take a breath. Make sure all the joints are fully pushed together with as little gap as you can manage - a little persuasion with a mallet can help out, but don't go wild on it. Set the chair upright on its legs and make sure it's not crooked or twisted. You can add a strap clamp or bar clamps to hold it all together while it dries.Admire the chair from all angles - this step is important.Once this was done, I grabbed a piece of plywood and jigsawed a seat to fit over the seat sides with corners cut out for the legs. The idea was to upholster this with fabric and upholstery foam (inspired by, naturally, Paul Sellers' video on how to upholster a chair seat which came out when I was half way through making this chair) but I ran out of time for the contest deadline so for now a seat pad will have to do. And I was trying to make something that didn't look like garden furniture...Despite all this, a piece of simple everyday furniture from scratch is definitely one of the more rewarding things I've made, and I'm sure I'll build more in future. Hopefully this goes to show just how far you can make a 2x4 go with some ingenuity and a healthy disregard of practical limitations :)

Nearly a Month After Son of Roselle Park Couple Drowns, Many Questions Remain Unanswered
Ryan Koranteng-Barnes was 2 years old and less than 3 feet tall, with one good hand. The pool he drowned in was 4 feet above ground with no ladder and no other way to climb in, relatives say.While authorities say the Roselle Park toddler's death appears accidental, Koranteng-Barnes' parents are convinced something else contributed to their son's drowning. They are asking for witnesses to step forward to help explain how their youngest son died in a neighbor's backyard on June 25."I've been searching for answers, and nobody wants to give me any," said Ebo Koranteng-Barnes, Ryan's father.The Union County Prosecutor's Office and the Roselle Park police have both said their investigation remains open, but they do not suspect foul play in the child's death."While it does not appear suspicious, the homicide task force is continuing to interview people, including potential witnesses, and is waiting on a report from the medical examiner's office," Prosecutor Theodore Romankow said.Ryan was playing with his older brother, Ferdinand, and his mother during a block party last month when he disappeared into a neighbor's backyard, his father said. The Koranteng-Barneses and the owners of the home where the child vanished - Tony and Ida Martins - searched frantically for the boy, finding him unconscious in the pool minutes later.Neighbors tried to revive Ryan, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, Koranteng-Barnes and police said.With his left hand deformed because of a birth defect, Ryan would not have been able to climb in by himself, his family said, and the pool did not have a ladder attached to it."I saw it with my naked eyes, the ladder was at least two feet away from the pool," Koranteng-Barnes said. "My son cannot even sit on a dining chair by himself."The Martins' pool should not have been filled either, because it had not been inspected by the town, according to Steve Greenstein, an attorney for the Koranteng-Barnes family.On June 2, Tony Martins was served with a municipal violation informing him the pool should not have been filled, according to a document provided by Greenstein.The child's father believes someone helped his son enter the pool, but Tony Martins said no one else was in the backyard."To me it was a tragic accident - there's no other way to explain it," he said.Koranteng-Barnes doesn't believe anyone intentionally tried to drown Ryan, but he's worried that investigators will simply close his son's case without providing the family any closure."It is their civic duty to tell me how my son got into the pool," Koranteng-Barnes said. "They have to prove it was an accident.":• No foul play suspected in drowning death of Roselle Park 2-year-old • 2-year-old boy drowns in Roselle Park pool

Design Scheme of Multi-channel Voltage Measurement Based on Stm32
Design Scheme of Multi-channel Voltage Measurement Based on Stm32
This design proposes a design scheme of multi-channel voltage measurement based on STM32 chip, and the measurement range is between 0-10V. The built-in A / D of STM32 samples the multi-channel voltage values to obtain the corresponding digital quantity. Then the corresponding analog voltage value is obtained according to the proportional relationship between digital quantity and analog quantity, which is displayed by TFTLCD display equipment, and the multi-channel collected data is stored in SD card.1. IntroductionIn recent years, data acquisition and its application have attracted more and more attention, and data acquisition system has developed rapidly. It can be widely used in various fields.Data acquisition technology is one of the important branches of information science. Data acquisition is also a process of obtaining object information from one or more signals. Data acquisition is an important link in industrial control systems. It is usually realized by some single chip microcomputer systems with relatively independent functions. As an indispensable part of the measurement and control system, the performance characteristics of data acquisition directly affect the whole system.Voltage measurement is the most universal. It is of great significance to study and design methods and instruments to improve voltage measurement accuracy. In the design of voltage measurement, single chip microcomputer as controller is the core of the whole design. In addition, there must be an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) in the design. ADC is used to directly collect analog voltage and convert analog signal into digital signal. It directly affects the accuracy and speed of data acquisition.2. System overviewThe microcontroller of this design adopts STM32 single chip microcomputer.STM32 Series MCU is designed based on the Cortex-M3 core of arm company. Its clock frequency reaches 72mhz. It is a high-performance product among similar products. It has the advantages of high performance, low cost and low power consumption. It is a good choice in embedded application design. The A / D converter in the design adopts STM32 built-in ADC. STM32 ADC is a 12 bit successive approximation analog-to-digital converter.It has up to 18 channels and can measure 16 external and 2 internal signal sources. The A / D conversion of each channel can be performed in single, continuous, scanning or intermittent mode. The conversion results can be stored in the 16 bit data register in left or right alignment. The maximum input clock can reach 14mhzThis design can measure the voltage value of 8 channels, the measurement range is 0-10V, and the display error is ± 0.001V. LCD displays the voltage value and waveform in real time, and microSD card synchronously stores the data. The system principle block diagram is shown in Figure 1.Design scheme of multi-channel voltage measurement based on stm323.3 LCD control circuitThe LCD used in this design is 2.4 inches, 320 & times; 240 resolution. The LCD module is controlled by the FSMC interface of STM32.FSMC (flexible static memory controller) can be changed into static storage controller. It is a unique storage control mechanism of STM32 series high storage density microcontroller with internal integration of flash of more than 256Kb and suffixes Xc, XD and Xe. By setting the special function register, FSMC can send corresponding data / address / control signal types according to different external memory types to match the speed of the signal, so that STM32 series microcontrollers can not only apply various external static memories of different types and speeds, Moreover, it can expand a variety of different types of static memory without adding external devices, so as to meet the comprehensive requirements of system design for storage capacity, product volume and cost.In STM32, one end of FSMC is connected to core Cortex-M3 through internal high-speed bus AHB, and the other end is an external bus for extended memory. After the access signal of the kernel to the external memory is sent to the AHB bus, it is converted into a signal conforming to the communication protocol of the external memory through the FSMC and sent to the corresponding pin of the external memory to realize the data interaction between the kernel and the external memory. FSMC acts as a bridge, which can not only convert the signal type, but also adjust the signal width and timing, so as to shield the differences of different storage types and make them no difference to the kernel.FSMC can connect devices such as nor / PSRAM / NAND / PC card, and has FSMC_ A [25:0] has 26 address buses and FSMC [15:0] has 16 data buses. In addition, the extended storage space of FSMC is divided into 8 blocks. Select the block of the operation through the address line. In this way, the LCD will operate as a memory with one address space.3.4 SD card drive circuitThe SD card used in this design is microSD, also known as TF card. MicroSD card is a very small flash memory card, which is mainly used in mobile phones. However, due to its small volume and the continuous improvement of storage capacity, it has been used in GPS devices, portable music players, digital cameras and some flash memory disks. The pin diagram of microSD card is shown in Figure 9.MicroSD card, like SD card, has SPI and SDIO operation buses. Compared with SDIO bus, SPI bus has simple interface, but its speed is slow. We use SDIO mode.MicroSD card has 4 data lines in SDIO mode.In fact, microSD has 1-wire mode and 4-wire mode in SDIO mode, that is, 1 or 4 data lines are used respectively. Of course, the speed of 4-wire mode is faster than that of 1-wire mode, but the operation is more complex. The 4-wire mode of SDIO is used in this design. The hardware connection diagram of microSD card is shown in Figure 3.STM32 MCU Chinese official websiteSTMicroelectronics / St / STM
How Does Temperature Affect the Speed of Sound?
How Does Temperature Affect the Speed of Sound?
As other answers show, the speed of sound is slightly influenced by temperature.Much more interesting is the influence of gradients in temperature! The usual distribution of temperature at different heights is: high at ground level, decreasing upwards. This profile, with slightly higher sound velocity at ground level causes wave fronts to curve upwards. Sometimes the temperature profile is inverse, from ground level to a certain height, in the order of hundreds of meters. This inversion layer acts as a reflector, causing sound to propagate over much larger distances.It is not the speed as such, but the differences in speed that have important influence on sound propagation.1. How to increase my running speed?No, leaping prime does now not make you a quicker runner. Speed is muscular so you will do whole frame paintings along side plyometrics, which can be exceptional varieties of bounding and leaping to construct explosive force. To get greater at going for walks you ought to run. If you are employed on lifting and doing the plyometrics you are going to have the groundwork to upgrade your going for walks. What form of going for walks are you running for? If it's soccer then you definitely will have to coach for brief bursts of velocity. If it's one other game you have got to appear on the distances required on your game. A huge aspect of velocity it response. That manner the begin. Whether it's out of the blocks in a race, or attending to a fly ball within the outfield. Speed is vigor so that you ought to be ready to loosen up rise up tall, maintain your elbows at ninety levels, swing them directly entrance to again, and now not throughout your frame. Land at the balls of your ft.2. Water flows through a 1.5 cm diameter pipe into a 275 liter bathtub, which it fills in 5 minutes. What is the speed of the water in the pipe?Mass of 275 litres of Water divided by 5 minutes x 60 seconds = Time of 300 secondsMass Flow Rate of 0.9166 litres per secondThis is excessive amount of water in Speed or Velocity to fill a bathtub in 300 seconds. See IPHE & CIBSE CoP & Technical Guidance on maximum flow rate for 15 mm smooth wall copper pipework. The water pressure is another factor is consider.Water flows through a 1.5 cm diameter pipe into a 275 liter bathtub, which it fills in 5 minutes. What is the speed of the water in the pipe?.3. Not getting the download speed I should be getting?you download a file to what ? a phone or a computer? ethernet or wirelessly ? you need to be more clear on how to ask a question, even with my godlike powers i cant read your mind4. Need help gaining speed/trimming fat?challenging task. browse in google. that will may help!5. Why are people so insistent that speed of light is constant for all observers and is the maximum traveling speed?In special relativity, when the speed of light is constant for everyone, time can be different. When different travellers or observers have light remain constant, their time can change to allow for this. So try to wrap your head around the fact that different observers can have differences in time, and this allows the speed of light to remain constant for all observers.6. fur nice fan motor Polly have to be smaller to make the fan go faster?Motor pulley larger or driven pulley smaller will increase speed7. What are the technical factors in a processor that determine its speed?Clock Speed of the Processor and its primary cache size determines its speed in terms of throughput8. Is faster than the speed of light possible?well ist just a theory so it could be or couldnt be true.....einstien said if we could go the speed of light then we cold time travel...other people say it is still expanding....what i want to know is how can all of that crap fit into somthing the size of a pin head lol.9. How to train for faster picking speed on guitar?Assuming we are talking about alternate picking, there are basically two exercise methods for building speed.The first and the better known one is to start slow. Set your metronome to a comfortable tempo and play the exercise a few times. Then go up 2 bpms or so and repeat. Continue alternating between plus two and minus one. Back down some 10 bpm when you hit your limit and work your way up from there again. You can go up 10 bpm or so from time to time just to see how it feels. The second one is to practice in bursts. Start with two notes and play as fast as you can. Then add the third and continue from there. This method is not as well known as the first one but is every bit as useful. You can also start from the most difficult spot on the exercise and add notes on both sides.Practicing scales only is probably not the best way to go. There are specially crafted exercise sets to build speed that isolate common patterns. Troy Stetina's book Speed Mechanics contains one such set.In terms of technique, on your left hand, only apply enough pressure to avoid buzz. You will get tired very quickly if you exert more force than necessary. The lighter your left hand touch is, the easier it is to play fast. It's easier said than done but that's the whole idea of practicing.On your right hand, I would not worry that much about wrist vs. elbow unless you are aiming for Guiness speed record. Wrist movement is probably a bit better but there's nothing wrong with a combination of wrist and elbow. Guitarists argue about it all the time but there are superb guitarists in both camps which proves that both techniques are equally viable. Just avoid finger movement, it does not work for fast playing
