Lisette Appeldorn is a conceptual designer living in Amsterdam who created “Raster.” Intrigued with African cultures, Ms. Appeldorn created this series using plywood. By applying different folding techniques to thin layers of plywood, she was able to make the masks look more futuristic. Happy Halloween!
This new furniture collection, Echo was designed by Tom Faulkner. Inspired by origami, the folds of the table legs were configured to provide the maximum amount of strength and stability. The swivel chair mimics the faceted shape of the table and provides a cocoon-like place to sit. Smart!
