POT.PURRI is a mixture or collection of miscellaneous or diverse items. A combination of incongruous things.
For us it is a collection of small, modular containers, designed with some basic parts that through various materials and combinations can construct more than 50 unique objects with different shapes and capacities, from lamps to tableware.
Inspired by the ambition of ‘cutting distance’ between design and material and ‘fluctuating shapes’ as our expression of contemporary deisgn, the project is cultivated around the concept of modularity and the customization.
This new approach towards the flexibility of the pieces fusion with the constant possibility of upgrading or changing, focuses at a wide spectrum of new users.
The project allows the user to mix and match shapes, materials and colors. We shaped the concept based on modular elements, with different dimensions and diameters that can be mutually paired and combined consequently, providing unlimited possibilities.

What a great way to add some fun and drama to your boring walls. This bold coat rack was designed by Italian company Insilvis.
Product Description : A snake is a sinuous line that twists and turns throughout the space. It exits from the cavities of the earth, of which it guards the primordial energies, raising itself towards the light of the life and the knowledge. The transformation of its skin expresses the regenerative ability of the vital processes, within a cyclic path that joins the opposites. The debunked image of a snake, unforeseeable and rich of evocative references, belongs by now serenely to our visual landscape. The lithe profile becomes a structure for hanging clothing and handbags: it is almost a basic scribble.

I know, I know ..this has nothing to do with interior design. I just could not resist. It is just too cool!!! The Berlin Boombox is designed by Berlin-based designer Axel Pfaender. He decided it was time for a cool and fun mobile speaker … a soundsystem you want to show off, like back in the days.
The Berlin Boombox comes as a kit consisting of a die-cut cardboard structure and all electronic parts.
Assembly is easy, glue-free, tool-free and takes only a couple of minutes.

A coffee cup shaped sugar bowl divided into two, convenient for serving different sweeteners and for raising a smile.
Made of Ceramic.
“The Coffee Breaks birth as a product lies at the end of a relatively unconventional design journey.
From 2011 onward we produced a series of studio works, consisting of sectioned ceramic table ware such as tea pots, coffee cups, plates and vases.
Ceramic vessels were sourced from the local flea market and with the aid of a gem-cutters saw, the vessels sides were cut away leaving only the center most portion of the vessel. The outcome had an almost two-dimensional existence, free of volume, devoid of the ability to contain, they were almost a graphic representation of themselves.
These works were shown at several galleries and museums as a kind of ‘designers studies’.”
