Here are some items by Muuto that didn't make it into today's New York Times article. There was Julien De Smedt's procelain Crushed Bowl that "show big-scale architecture applied on small scale objects. The bowls are composed of equilateral triangles and principles we use for big-scale computer modeling. Adding human ergonomics and aesthetics to the equation we have derived a series of vessels that are carefully crushed for everyday use". See the bowl after the jump. Above also for Muuto, JDS Architects' Stacked Shelf, say the architects, "How to be specific and generic altogether? Shelving systems have a tendency to achieve one concern but never both. We decided to dimension shelving units based on the generic measurements of things to store and display while allowing for them to be combined according to specific needs and desires... the result can be at times a random stack of boxes or a coordinated grid of efficient storage... or both!".
