Ground Control to Major Tom

Just when you thought we couldn’t find anything “farther out” than the incredibly “far out” things we’re always finding, look what has floated into our ever-so-clever gallery straight from one of Italy’s funkiest design minds. Come see them for yourself during our event next Wednesday (check back here for details next week). We bet your earthbound ideas of what constitutes avant-garde design will be put into orbit or we’re not living up to our stellar reputation as provocateurs. Yeah, it’s pretty rarified air!


Meteore suspension light

Massimiliano Adami’s “Fossili Moderni,” or Modern Fossils, are created with found objects, which are hand-selected by the artist, meaning every piece is unique. If the Meteore suspension light had a schtick, it would likely be “Houston, we don’t have a problem” (and that’s House-ton to you addled pedestrians wafting past our Soho windows). After all, when you’re this audacious, what problems could you possible have? 


Meteore floor lamp

With the Meteore floor lamp, it’s feet on the ground/head in the air. This is an assemblage with a mission. Don’t you think it just screams, “I think my spaceship knows which way to go”?


Domestic Fossil (TV)

Beam us up, Scotty (if you dare)! The Domestic Fossil (TV) is one of five unique televisions made by Adami for the exhibition “Magma Fossile,” held at La Triennale di Milano Design Museum in 2009. In case you’re clueless, limited edition means once they’re gone, there are no reruns.


Round Rolling table

The Round Rolling table, with its one-of-a-kind love-me-or-leave-me-alone attitude, will take your credentials as a design connoisseur into the stratosphere; unfortunately, it’ll also send your other design statements looking for a worm hole to crawl into!

  1. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites
    I stumbleupon every day. It will always be exciting to read
    through content from other authors and use a little something from other websites.

  2. It was quite improbable that Apple also mended the kernel susceptibility for my untether
    use, I used. Once your device has been jailbroken, you can begin the unlocking process using another software application.
