Ghostly Porcelain Bowls Designed with Dramatic Splatters Frozen in Time









Artist Aylin Bilgiç has captured a moment in time through her delicate ceramic bowls. The porcelain vessels—part of an aptly-titled series Fluid Porcelain—have dramatic splashes that whip from their edges. It’s as if the bowl was full of liquid, had something thrown into it, and then a picture was snapped at just the right second.

To produce this mesmerizing effect, Bilgiç first creates the bowl out of porcelain. At certain angles, you can still see the rim of where the vessel ends and the splashes began. This furthers the illusion that there’s some sort of milky-colored substance erupting from the bowls. After the fluid portions are created, Bilgiç adds a gold accent along their edges. The result is an unconventional riff on traditional dining.

Artist “Fixes” Broken Wooden Furniture With Modern Translucent Materials





Brazilian artist Tatiane Freitas blends classic and contemporary design for her My New Old Chair series. In a twist on kintsugi—a Japanese tradition where fractured pottery is repaired with gold—broken furniture is revitalized through the addition of acrylic resin. The resulting contemporary, yet vintage, pieces demonstrate a harmony of opposing forces.

Freitas, who recently showed work at Guy Hepner in New York, succeeds in highlighting the original wood material. This is owed to her creative selection of translucent acrylic, which renders the pieces functional and modern, yet melts away visually.

The Plantable






The Planter Table made by Jailmake brings nature back into the dining experience.

Plantable reintroduces nature back into the experience of gathering, cooking and eating a meal; strengthening a connection to the natural world that is often overshadowed by the myriad accelerated experiences of urban life. Each of the table’s steel legs are hand bent and fillet brazed into the framework, contrasting with the solid English oak tabletop.

Broquets; Beautiful Beef Jerky Floral Arrangements



Ok ladies, listen up. Valentine is around the corner and you need this. Say It With Beef is a company that sells beef jerky floral arrangements called Broquets. For $35 you get over half a pound of jerky crafted into the shape of roses or daises thoughtfully placed into a pint glass or beer mug.

That settles it — romance is not dead. It is very much alive and well as evidenced by the fact that MEAT FLOWERS is a thing that exists.

Origami Aluminum Lamps Project Feathers and Antlers When Illuminated










When Tel Aviv-based designer Chen Bikovski was growing up she was fascinated by pop-up books, especially engaged with the immersive experience that came with the turn of each page. Interested in transforming this idea to work with her design practice, Bikovski founded Popup Lighting, a series of lamps that turn into magical creatures like deer and peacocks when illuminated.

Bikovski’s fixtures seem like minimal aluminum sculptures until their light is switched on—the origami-like works suddenly appearing as deer or peacocks. Streams of light behind the lamps create the effect of horns and feathers, subtly casting patterns that make each work come alive.
