We are curious about your reactions to these two unusual designs. The Tour Eiffel Lamp and Taj Mahal Table were envisioned by Studio Job and fall into the category of “you either love it or hate it”-designs. Discovered on dezeen, the projects are daring and attention-grabbing. The Taj Mahal table is an upside down version of the Indian landmark, made from patinated and polished bronze.
The Eiffel Tower lamp was also built using bronze and features a lampshade attached to the tower. Designer Job Smeets stated: “While having a summer lunch with Loic and Julien of Carpenters [Workshop Gallery] on the top of Centre Pompidou I had this amazing view of the Tour Eiffel and dreamt about my bohemian life in Paris back in the Nineties. You know, when the world was young and Tour Eiffel was my best friend and close neighbour. Anyway, somewhere between entrée and main the guys commissioned a lamp. One thing led to another!” So- love them or hate them?
Handmade, elegant and solid, the Dixon Modular Storage Unit from Dare Studio is a beautiful example of well-made British design. Designed by Patrick Frey for Richard Lampert, the sleek, modest and rather demure Stak Trolley system is suited to home and office environments. German-Based Richard Lampert follows the motto: ‘as little as possible, as much as necessary’.
An armoire can be a lovely addition to your bedroom, even if you already have a giant walk-in closet. If you have enough stuff, you may want to dedicate your armoire to neatly organizing and storing all your jewelry, scarves, purses, handbags, shoes, and other smaller accessories. Do you own enough hats? Simply replace the glass doors with netting for an interesting way to display them.
