The P242 vases by Oscar Diaz is a set of hand blown glass vases designed with the aid of a computer – this enables the red, green and blue hues to perfectly create purple P242 when the vases are placed inside one another.  They will be exhibited at 100% Design in London in September as part of the Eyes On Spanish Design exhibition.

London based furniture designer Naomi Dean, who was awarded the Young Furniture Designer Of  The Year award in 2005, diverts old office furniture from landfill to make her Spin Tables and Tiny Footprint Desks.  Her sleek and functional pieces incorporate design details such as cable tidies that allow a laptop to charge while the desk is closed, and modular coffee tables on castors which can be bought as a pair to make a larger unit.

Pawel Grunert‘s SIE43 chair is made from PET bottles on a stainless steel frame.  The bottles can be replaced if and when they begin to show signs of wear or damage.  The chair was designed for ‘Eco Trans Pop’ exhibition of ecological design at the Colombari Gallery in Milan, Italy.

This gorgeous butterfly and spider glass set is new from Propaganda.  The three glasses are printed with a spider web, a butterfly and a spider, when they are put one inside the other, the images come together as one.  I heart these – my kind of tableware 😀

Wow.  I reckon this is as close to my dream home as it’s possible to get.  The 18th century Dutch barn converted by architect John Pawson is located in the Essex countryside and is currently for rent – see full details on The Modern House website.
