This time Bergmans has applied her technique of blowing molten glass vases directly onto a range of traditional Middle Eastern furniture items.

    this is awesome. bizarre stuff

  • kingmu

    I can’t tell you why I adore this… but, adore it, I do.

    Not design. Art to someone, but not design. Design requires an intended function of the item. These things whatever they are are not usable. Some idiot is supposed to buy it for a mint and then let it collect dust. Doesn’t belong on a design site.

    Designers shouldn’t go to school to learn but maybe become designers from another area – like carpentry or engineering. This would avoid “artistic” types from creating useless junk like this. I agree with Joe.
