The objects can be used as vases, candle holders, umbrella stands or even fish bowls, apparently.

EEMELI

Is it a reef? Is it a symbiote? No, it's EEMELI! You may just plain admire it or place flowers in it.

    i’m not saying i like it but i’d like to see an actual photograph. this sort of thing is quickly done in a spare half hour on studiomax. Manufacturing this is another story.

  • hendrix

    wow,
    this is ridiculous. Obscene, actually.
    …I’m going to draw a 3d fart and call it a multipurpose object. It’ll come in pink for girls and blue for boys. Anyone interested?
