If the sight of the Pac-Man ghosts doesn’t get your heart rate going ever so slightly, then maybe the music will? It makes my pulse race and my hands get into arcade grip just thinking about it. While we can’t all have the arcade game in our house, perhaps a sophisticated yet cheeky nod to it will do? Designer Chicco Chiari bypassed plastic and any other material you’d associate anything in the 80s with and went straight to Carrara marble when creating this collection of playful ghost lamps called Fantasmini.

Micro Matter, an A’ Design award winning project by Rosa de Jong, is meant to transport you into new worlds, all wrapped in a tiny test tube. Inspired by how when viewing art that has space around it, another dimension is created that can feel a bit like meditation, which led Rosa to create Micro Matter.



London-based StolenForm began in 2012 by designer/maker Christian Marsden who found inspiration all around the urban environment from years of walking the city’s streets. Deciding to give things like bricks, manhole covers, and pipes new life, StolenForm turns them into sculptural pieces that also have a function. The industrial-inspired ceramics are slightly quirky, definitely eye-catching, and completely useful making them the perfect conversation piece for your home or as a gift. (via Design Milk)





Oblique is a collection of wall shelves that offer you a clever way to display your current reads or favorites. Designed by Filip Janssens, each of the three units features a notched out section to accent a book (or three), almost like it’s framed.

You can simply display it on the wall for books or install it beside your bed so it also acts as a bedside table. (via Design Milk)

Bilbao, Spain-based Muka Design Lab created the Reves Chair, which aims to leave you feeling embraced and protected. The design floats somewhere between a regular chair and a poltrona (armchair), with an upholstered hood that lets you raise it for more privacy.

The beech frame supports a two-toned, upholstered, super soft hood that wraps around you while you’re sitting, even when it’s folded down.

They used beech wood as it’s locally produced and only use fabrics from an eco-friendly label.

It looks like relaxing on a bed of squishy volleyballs, but the Feel Seating System Deluxe is made up of 120 “soft and extremely pleasant” balls. You can change it up to a variety of positions to make any kind of chair or lounger you prefer. (via Design Milk) Looks heavenly..

Animal by Quentin de Coster is the result of a reflection on the formal and stereotypical perceptions related to the world of childhood. In an attempt to identify the formal universe in which children aged five years evolve, they were asked to draw tables and dogs. The design of animal was then created from drawings and constraints applicable to shape wood. In this way, the furniture takes on a simplified animal appearance, which beyond fun aspirations, allows it to exist without being used. The outgrowth of the shelf which represents head, gives the child a convenient storage within arm’s reach communicating directly with the work plan. (via Design Milk)
