Lux Table by Penny Forlano for Vujj

Here is yet another item from the Swedish manufacturer Vujj. I could blog all day about the beautiful and innovative items they have produced. This one is called the Lux Table. It’s so thin it almost looks fake. How could you manufacture a table so thin and still have some structural stability? By using state […]

Mollis Easy Chair by Artur & Jonas

The Mollis Easy Chair by Vujj is a new take on an old standard: the butterfly lounge chair. This chair is so much more, though. First, the frame is much sturdier, and the paint job is also much more striking. Even the form of the frame is more appealing and dynamic to me. And most […]

Pillow by Trine Kornum

Trine Kornum’s work is extremely simple and consistent.

Smoke Chair by Ugly Home, Paris

A trend that has been going ’round is to blacken baroque design objects. I seem to recall that is started by blackening crystal chandeliers and sconces. Not too long after this, I noticed this chair at a few different shops. This chair goes to a bit more of an extreme to give the chair a […]

Grassland Tape by And Design
