How charming is this little espresso set! Say bonjour to this dainty design called the Kookii for 2 by Felina Sok Cham of Paris. I love the modularity of this piece and how its sleek construction lends its hand to a more intuitive function. It addresses not only the purpose of serving others but allowing them to partake in the beauty of piece itself. Rather than having separate items that require more storage, this unit diminishes the need for clutter to make coffee talk more sociable! With construction in bamboo in a “butcheresque” block style with lovely square porcelain tumblers that have built in slots for stirring, caffeine fixes never looked so stylish.
“Life needs more blossom of light and imagination.”
Designer Kuo Tzu Jung cleverly shows its design concept with the form of a dandelion. Dandelion is a piece of complex concept furniture. It can be an artwork in space, it can be a wooden stool, or even it can be a magazine rack. In different spaces, it has different functions and tells different life narration. All of it depends on your imagination for life and space.
“Clown Jellies are invertebrates that are only visible in the water that is between 24 to 25 meters deep, no more, no less. If seen, Clown Jellies are easily distinguished by their vibrant colour. While colour wavelengths are absorbed by water, leaving much of the ocean a dullish blue tint to the human eye, Clown Jellies will always appear brightly coloured to divers, even if that is theoretically a scientific impossibility.”
Clown Jellies, for my solo show at Stranger Factory, opening September 6th, 2013. If you’d like the show preview and online purchase instructions, please join their mailing list!
