What is Dornob.com? We are an interactive design archive of the latest architectural, interior, furniture designs. Our focus is on works that take form and function to the next level. At Dornob you will find out-of-the-ordinary designs that might not make it into your more traditional architectural, urban and industrial design publications – from over-the-top luxury to incredible design innovation.
What Makes Dornob Different? Unlike many design sites, Dornob offers a huge variety of navigational options. You can search by the six primary categories listed at the top of each page – or the subcategories that appear on the sidebar once you click into a primary category. You can see a larger preview and title of a given design in the main column on the left, usually related to the page you are on, or navigate to random archived designs via thumbnails to the right.
Why the Name Dornob? We had to get a little creative with the spelling, but fortunately the name still conveys the kind of portal the site is envisioned to be – a place where people enter and move from room to room, opening up ‘doors’ to new design ideas daily.
Who Is Talking about Us? We have been referenced by a surprising variety of sources in our relatively short existence. These include CribCandy, WebUrbanist, Materialicious, BoingBoing, Wired, Gizmodo, Io9, Asylum, Neatorama, The Huffington Post and many more. The site has also developed a loyal base of core readers on Facebook, Twitter and other social sites – which is part of how it has grown to have over a million pages viewed every month.
But Are We Green? Themes of smart sustainability, creative reuse and eco-friendly innovation form the foundation of Dornob. From adaptive reuse architecture and recycled furnishings to new material-saving products and multifunctional furniture, this site bridges the critical gap between sustainable style and practical living – thinking green and going green.
