Blog/Designs That Are Beaming With Pride

five designs for the home inspired by beams and warehouse features

Berlin-based furniture designers EAJY based their Beams collection on the construction of San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge.


The I- or H-beam, also known as the Double-T, is a structural steel often left exposed in older industrial conversions, bearing heavy loads in the construction of the building. The iconic form is increasingly carrying weight in the design world by inspiring furniture and decorative pieces.
