A solution to food presentation monotony; a modular tray with 20 individual magnetised compartments that can be mixed and matched together, resulting in the perfect formation for any given meal.
Keramos is a modular container with a ceramic shell which makes it immediately recognizable, and which reminds us of the terracotta jars, par excellence containers in human history, which preserved over time their contents. Keramos is a special, not ordinary, piece of furniture, container of precious things which needs to be preserved more than contained.
Like all of Duffy’s designs, the Abyss Table is a conversation piece as much as a functional one. But while previous works play with gravity, this new design is concerned with depth, and creates a geological cross-section as mesmerising as the sea.
¿Obra de arte o mueble? ¿Billetes de 50€ quemados? ¿Realidad o ficción?
Es una pieza única. La escultura funcional más provocadora del momento. Esta mesa nace en colaboración con el artista plástico Alejandro Monge. Es una obra de art-design que invita a reflexionar sobre el significado y el valor del dinero.
Al fin y al cabo un billete es sólo un trozo de papel tintado, que representa una cifra; 20, 50, 100… Un cifra que en sí misma no tiene más valor, que el que nosotros le queremos dar, al tiempo u objeto por el que lo queremos intercambiar.
What if you could use human hair as an alternative to diminishing natural materials? Studio Swine travel along the Hair Highway to explore the hair trade and its potential as a future resource.
Steps is an exploration into the idea of reinvention. By re-conceptualizing objects that were originally designed for one purpose, we find alternate or multiple uses. In stripping the stair of its more cultural and metaphorical meaning, and allowing the essential structure of the stair become both the practical and the aesthetic value, Steps re-orients us to the idea of the stair and how we use it. Steps transforms the staircase’s iconic form into multi-functional seating by incorporating a seat back to the second “tread.” In doing so, Steps form becomes both a seat with two end-tables and two seats with one end-table.
This collection is inspired by the exciting edges and vivid grains found in the trees sustainably taken from the banks of the Nooksack river that twists below of Greg Klassen studio.

Pencils are utilized when giving form to our thoughts, illustrating our wishes and ideas. They are inseparably fused with craft and arts, representing diverse relationships between artist and their creations. Pencils are extensions of our minds which enable us to transmit information through different mediums and time, collecting knowledge and creating it.
Amalgamated is a collection which explores the relationship of a mass produced ‘tool’ and its individual purpose. The beauty of the pencil as an object seems to go unnoticed if utilised only for their primary purpose. “Amalgamated” is a visual and tactile investigation by using pencils as a raw material. This holistic principle has been the fundament for creating this set of vases; let the pencils become a thing themselves.
It was in Carrara where Michelangelo embarked on a series of life-threatening expeditions to secure the same blocks of precious white Carrara marble stone for his celebrated ‘Pietà’ and ‘Moses’ masterpiece sculptures. Like the vitality of human flesh, the ephemeral material used for the Manhattan Lamp becomes more than just a sculptural medium; a juxtaposition between the sheer scale of the monumental stone volumes and the pristine Italian mountain-scape.
Boxed is a piece of multi-functional and adaptable furniture. It can be a coffee table, a desk, two stools and a lamp. All of these elements can be extended by the simple introduction of another part to suit the user’s need. These parts then all collapse back down to their most basic form, allowing them to be returned to the case that they are stored inside.
David Tarcali, member of the Budapest-based Studio-Nomad, designed a coffee and side table collection called ‘3LEGS’. The three different types of tables are inspired by geometric patterns and architectural shapes. The name 3LEGS reflects the simplicity of how these forms work. Each table is folded from a single sheet of 3-millimeter-thick steel that gives it the characteristic abstract appearance seen from different perspectives.

Deliberately crafted, details in wood, metal, plastic and fiber compliment and complete one another.

In this beautifuly made video we show you how the the Stan & Harvey vases are made by Matteo Gonet. They are hand-blown using a pear wood mold. The liveliness of the manufacturing process is reflected in these concepts by Nikolas Kerl. The siblings Stan & Harvey react to touch with a slight swaying motion and thus convey the playful nature of their design. The exceptional ability of the glass blower makes both of these objects one of a kind.
