Caboche Suspension by Foscarini
Caboche Suspension by Foscarini

With a certain sparkle and visual allure, the Foscarini Caboche Suspension easily transforms a space from ordinary to extravagant. Designed in 2005 by Patricia Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto, this well‐recognized piece features a circle of polymethylmetacrylate transparent globes around a single light source, creating shimmer and shadow in the surrounding space. Urquiola has also designed products for Alessi, Kartell, Flos, and others and is known for her highly imaginative, pragmatic style found in her designs. From furniture to lighting, she conceives every object she designs as part of a domestic landscape, rather than as an individual piece.

Mademoiselle Chair

Bon jour, Mademoiselle! Designed by Ilmari Tapivaara in 1956, the Mademoiselle Lounge Chair is a classic Finnish design from the mid‐century. Tapivaara’s take on the Windsor chair is lower and more laid back than traditional versions, available in painted black or white birch wood.

Used to hold the pot of a long‐stemmed flower, this Cachepot is part of a collection from designer Mario Trimarchi designed to emphasize shadows and inspired by the strong Scirooco winds in Sicily. Trimarchi is an architect of the “freehand” generation, considering drawing, photography, design and image all equal parts of the visual universe.

La Stanza Dello Scirocco Cachepot
Screw Table by Tom Dixon

This is one heavy‐duty table, with a white marble top and sturdy tripod base. Staying true to British designer Tom Dixon's unlikely inspirations, the idea of the Screw Table came from materials and processes used during the Industrial Revolution.

Eames House Bird
Eames House Bird by Vitra

The Eames House Bird started out as just that—a black wooden bird that was a part of Charles and Ray Eames’ house, later rising to fame after being seen in many of the Eames’ photographs. Its exact origin is unknown, but Vitra used 3-D scans of the original to create a wood reproduction of this piece of American folk art.
