Crabes-Langoustes & Manta Ray Chair

By the same designer of the
Mirave & Miru Mirrors, these crazy miniature chairs are covered with soft animals, or to be more precise, crabs (crustaceans) and manta rays (vertebrata). While altogether bemusing, it’s odd that it should only be used for decorative purposes…I’d like to see how someone would instruct a kid to ‘see and not touch’ one of these. That being said, of course I can see how these chairs would be solely an objet d’art for a collector.

Display Domes

As a self-described minimalist, I usually don’t like the idea of allowing room for trinkets and such, but it is rather unrealistic to think that in your life you aren’t going to acquire some mementos along the way. I like how Marlon and Jace use display domes (as seen in their Apartment Therapy home tour) to create distinct display areas without making the space look cluttered.

Ernst Gamperl Vessels

I’m completely in love with these vessel-like shapes by Ernst Gamperl. Taken from trees that have naturally fallen due to effects of time, each one is meticulously carved from wet wood as it dries in order to expose the grain in a new way and form. The detail is really quite amazing, and pulls wood from an otherwise normal material into an extraordinary art piece. If I am ever lucky enough to own one I would honestly consider it a prized possession.

Circular patterns carved into [Gamperl’s] sculptures follow ancient Sufi customs and are deep synchronicity with the nature of the raw material itself. After the pieces have been moulded, waxed and polished into their finished shape, those same sculptural objects, appear to highlight the life of the grain and the ineffable force of nature which, in Gamperl’s case, has withstood the test of time.

Pricing starts at $546.00 approx. and go up to $7,700.00 (approximately).

Eames House Bird

“Charles and Ray Eames liked to surround themselves with traditional craft objects from around the world, which they collected on their extensive travels. One of their favourite objects was a bird made of black painted wood that was produced in the Appalachian Mountains at the beginning of the 20th century. The figure accompanied them from the 1950s onwards and can be seen in many photographs of the Eames’ living room. Based on the original artefact and in cooperation with the Eames Family, Vitra is now producing the first series of this figure.”

Cameroon Headdress

Call me a nutcase, but I have always wanted one of these, and have never seen any for sale until now. The texture and color and the sheer size…The only thing that keeps me from buying one right this second (for real) is the ‘more colors coming soon.’ (blue? black?)

“Their beautiful texture and vibrant color create a unique addition to any room.This special headdress is made of African bird feathers and has its own built-in self storage capacity, as the entire headdress can be turned inside out, with the feathers protected by inverted fiber cap.”

Available in Red. More colors coming soon.
13 inches tall, and is 29 inches in diameter when opened.
