Moooi Sponge Vase

Moooi Sponge Vase
Would you believe that we originally featured Marcel Wanders' Sponge Vase way back in the fall of 2007? Here's a quick lesson on how it's made: a sponge form is dipped into fluid porcelain clay, then fired in an oven where the sponge burns away, leaving only the porcelain form in its place. Neat, right? I'd count it among one of the top gifts for any discerning design fan, as...Read more

Bookend and Paper Holder by Scandola Marmi

Bookend and Paper Holder by Scandola Marmi

Rotate the bookend (on its long edge) to...Read more
