There is something incredibly poetic about Nendo‘s Hanabi lamp shade featured in this months’ Dwell. The lamp “blooms” with the warmth of the bulb. A design is so simple, yet so beautiful; when grouped, as for the 2006 Milan Salone, it is pure art.
The “pillow”, based on a Japanese anemone box, twists down to conceal treasures….or clutter. Beautiful & functional, I can imagine using one to store a selection of necessary art supplies – sketchbook, watercolors, favorite pens & pencil. Unlike the practical, but uninspiring, rubbermaid box – the “pillow” would look fabulous wherever you put it. Twist Pillow, $113, by Kat Nouri / ModernTwist, available online through Rose and Radish
