Dezeen’s top ten: primitive designs

There's a bit of a primitive vibe going on at the moment so for this month's top ten we've compiled our ten most-read stories about caves, rocks and sticks.

1: in pole position is this holiday home in Spain that was cast in the ground and hollowed out by a cow, designed by Anton García-Abril of Ensamble Studio.

2: in second place is this pavilion with a cave-like interior by Melbourne designer Callum Morton.

3: there's another cave-like interior in third place, this time an apartment in Paris by Paul Coudamy.

5: at number five, Boaz Cohen & Sayaka Yamamoto of BCXSY dress up as cave-folk to launch their Change! collection of furniture.

6: sixth place goes to these ceramic kitchen knives inspired by Stone Age tools, designed by Matthias Kaeding.

7: seventh most popular is Arik Levy's Rock Series of furniture.

8: this ring with three interchangeable rough diamonds by Sruli Recht is in eighth place.

Bronze Age by Philippe-Albert Lefebvre

9: these fire tools cast in bronze and iron from branches by Philippe-Albert Lefebvre are ninth most-popular.

10: and in tenth place are these plastic vases inspired by archaeological finds, designed by Sjoerd Jonkers.

That’s all for now – another top ten coming up next month.
