These furry couches by Fernando and Humberto Campana are so fun! How great would a livingroom look furnished with these plush babies alongside some colorful mirrored cabinets by the talented duo? And I have to mention that their website is super creative as well and filled with interesting interactive experiences.

Hongtao Zhou

CultureVixen HongtaoZhou 1 Hongtao Zhou art
Hongtao Zhou is a furniture designer and performance artist who started out studying chemistry in Harbin, China and ended up working as a furniture designer and sculptor, obtaining a Ph.D. in furniture design from Purdue University along the way. The wax chairs pictured above are from his series “Burniture” and are made to be lit until the candles finally burn, melt, and collapse the piece.

“These small wicks are burning down the “coldness” of the icy-looking wax chairs. Cold chairs generate “hot” seats, baking, melting and disappearing. At the same time, the hot wax liquid is melting down into “icicles.” Conflicts. Over consumption will weaken the chair system and eventually cause chair figures to collapse. It is just a matter of time. Burn the ice, burn our seats, burn us.” —Hongtao Zhou

Many of Hongtao’s works, such as his snow furniture pieces below, involve manipulation of ice and snow.

Misha Kahn

This installation, titled “cabinet” by Misha Kahn caught my eye straight off. Maybe it’s the concept of everything having its own cubby, or its own specific place in the big scheme of things, but something about it just feels so darn reassuring. It’s extremely visually pleasing from a designer’s standpoint as well, with perfectly customized containers for everything.

“After scanning the hoards of chachkis lying on my bedroom floor I printed out life size puzzle pieces and arranged them into this curious thought bubble.” —Misha Kahn
