Eemeli and Betty by Lincoln Kayiwa



Helsinki-based designer Lincoln Kayiwa has designed two multi-functional home and office objects. kayiwa_5.jpg

Called Eemeli (top two images) and Betty (below), they are available in black or white porcelain and glass.


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


The following is from Kayiwa Oy:

#1 of 4


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


This baby comes in black or white porcelain and glass.


#2 of 4


BETTY is a vase.


BETTY is a candelabrum.


BETTY is even a fish bowl or an umbrella holder.


BETTY looks wonderful when empty too.


The obverse and reverse sides of the BETTY let you use it the way you like.


BETTY comes in black or white porcelain and glass.

    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?
