Ben Storms – In Hale

In Hale” by Belgian designer Ben Storms is more than just a regular coffee table. This amazing piece is made from an impressive block of marble that weighs over 200kg and is carried by an “inflated” metal cushion.

PixCell – Kohei Nawa

PixCell’, is a mesmerizing series of sculpture by Japanese artist Kohei Nawa, who uses variably sized glass beads (“PixCell” beads, as Nawaw calls them) to cover the entire surface of objects, mostly taxidermied animals.

The outer layer suggests a molecular structure, and also references the pixel of the computer screen. “By covering surface of an object with transparent glass beads, the existence of the object itself is replaced by “a husk of light”, and the new vision “the cell of an image” (PixCell) is shown.
