Nude Landing Hangers

If you have ever played the game “Pick Up Sticks”, you will know what fun can be had arranging a group of wooden sticks in order to orchestrate a strategic game. The Nude Landing Hangers, designed by Wenjiao Shen and Ruiqiong Huang of Soso studio, act similarly. With no metal fittings, glue or paint to hold them together, they simply perch amongst themselves, waiting for your move on how they should be approached. Even the product name itself incites an image of simplistic beauty, and that’s essentially what they deliver also. Tall, slender, natural, simplistic beauty. Continue reading


Maria S.C. Chandelier

I am always inspired by artists who take “defined” objects and place them in a new and refreshing context. Polish based artist Pani Jurek, did just this when she created the Maria S.C. Chandelier from laboratory test tubes. The result is a colorful and playful design with a strong reference to the classical European chandelier. What is even more wonderful is that the Maria S.C. Chandelier invites its owners to participate in the creation. The tubes can be detached, and you can add liquids of various colors to change the appearance of the chandelier. Another option is to add plants or candles which too create a whole new effect. Continue reading

We all know someone (or maybe it’s us) that can’t start the day without a cup of coffee. British designer Josh Renouf took this habit to the next level and invented the Barisieur.

Croquet Shelving Wall

Let’s face it, storage can be pretty dull, although Michael Marriott found a way to make it an engaging game. His wall shelving is a modern deconstructed croquet set.

The wooden balls were wrapped with a wide painted stripe, each ball wearing a different color. Mallets were ornate with spindle-like turned shafts and heads, all accented with multiple colored stripes. The hoops were simply arched metal tubes. Continue reading
