1. RED Satellite Bowl small ($40) - Striking, with a simple design and visual impact, the Satellite Bowl makes a dramatic centerpiece or decorative object. A circle of lacquered wooden spokes are ingeniously pinned together and twisted open to create its unique form.

2HYBRID Isaura plate ($70) - Bring unique style to any setting with this fabulously original Isaura dinner plate from the Hybrid collection by Seletti. Refined by hand this beautiful plate features two different detailed designs sliced in half down the middle, as though two different plates have been joined together.

3. BAKUS trivet ($48) - Tati Guimarães designed this trivet to be a holder of memories. A stainless steel frame becomes a fully functional trivet as corks are inserted. Save the cork from your next celebratory bottle of wine and add it to this practical collection of happy reminiscences.

4. BIRD & Cloud ($38) - From the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) product collection. Designed by Daniel Jo, 2008, inspired by his ceramic sculptures, the designer created these endearing salt and pepper shakers—a figure of a white bird with an accompanying blue cloud.

5. TWITABLE ($150) - Beautiful plate/ bowl / object from Italian brand Seletti, called Twitable. Great to highlight or protect products. A whole new take on the bell jar and bird cage; fruit cage made of gold metal and porcelain plate.

6. EAMES Chairs coasters ($22) - Each of the four clear acrylic coasters in this set displays a different chair originally designed by the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames: the 1948 LaChaise, the 1951 Wire Side Chair, the 1956 Lounge Chair and Ottoman, and the 1946 Molded Plywood Chair with Metal Legs.

7. ORBIT server ($120) - From the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) product collection. Designed by Carlo Contin, 2012. An unusual pairing of industrial and natural materials, this three-tiered server adjusts to a variety of configurations for elegant entertaining. The bamboo platters unscrew from the stainless-steel base for convenient storage.

8. BIRD mug ($24) - Pulled from the pages of Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari’s eye-catching image-only magazine Toiletpaper, this durable enameled tin mug is just as charmingly provocative as the rest of the artist’s oeuvre. Cattelan’s depiction of a canary having its primary flight wings clipped alludes to the common idiom and perfectly illustrates the spirit of the brilliantly rebellious prankster.
