  • Many of Emo's projects are ultra-modern and hewn predominantly from glossy plastics and metals. The Italian, industrial design consultancy often works in sports equipment, electronics and modern furnishings.

  • Created by Ephraim Design, Modula is logo, brand and font for a concept modular furniture and product line. The font is appropriately modular, built by rotating shaded spaces within an angled grid.

  • These animal chairs by Spanish artist Máximo Riera would make quite the statement / conversation piece in a room. Soon to be added to the collection of Octopus, Rhino and Walrus: Lion, Beetle and Whale. And I can't wait to see how those turn out.
