The Yalta chair by Maxim Scherbakov is an ironic paraphrase for the luxurious resorts of the Soviet Union. Yalta in Soviet times was a symbol of resort life for all Soviet residents. Many dreamed of spending a vacation in Yalta on a trip. Yalta chair was created under the impression of the time when the stay in the sanatorium was in weight of gold. Stylistically, the chair refers to the aesthetics of romantic brutalism and the extraordinary constructions of the Yalta coast.
The table by Simon Johns is an asymmetrical two part piece, with a space that divides it as the river divides the valley.

The stone and plank that support the two parts form a continuous axis end to end, through the divide. The beauty of the brutalist natural stone, contrasts and converses with the delicate craftsmanship of the wood plateau.

The project is an exploration of the relationship between geometric and organic forms – transparent and opaque. Indefinite melting materia interacts with definite angular forms and gravity determines the relationship in between. Indefinite Vases by Studio E.O are sculptures or containers. Functional or decorative. The contrast between the cut stone and the form of the hand […]
This collection by ADI LEV design draws inspiration from the world of Body Modifications. The lines of each jewel float just above the surface of the body, adding another dimension to the contour tattooed on the skin. Geometric lines define the language of this collection, forming complex three-dimensional structures whose floating quality leaves the observer wondering what holds them together, and where they meet the body.
