A Sunday review by Sally.
This reminds me of a piece that Tobias Wong did. He took a gold band, and instead of putting the diamond on the outside of the band (the traditional way), he put it on the inside, deep within the ring, so that only the people wearing it knew the diamond was there. It spoke volumes about our perception of what really matters and how diamonds on rings are more a symbol of our greed than a symbol of our love. This ring mimics that and puts it on a pedestal.
I'm very open about my disdain for Karim Rashid. We love to hate him, don't we? With that said, let's step back for a moment and try to appreciate that the guy progresses. Unlike other designers (Tord Boontje), Rashid stays consistent but never stops moving forward. He solidified the term 'blogject,' yet here we have a desk that's made up entirely of right angles. It's fun to hate him, but at least he keeps coming up with new stuff unlike his previous designs. More fuel for the hate fire!
I have a girl boner for plywood. Specifically compress ply, but whatever. Anyway, these lights and bowls are beautiful. They remind me of a simpler time when we didn't have things like resin and seven coats of lacquer.
This is pretty spectacular, isn't it? Right, ladies? We are so over carrying around a dumpy looking flash drive on our keychains. Here, we can have our most precious and secret documents lay on our chests. Perfection!
I'm in love with this house because it looks like something Predator would live in.
