The CANDY table is the result of exploring the beauty and simplicity. materials to make pieces of furniture: a beautiful and classic piece of furniture. CANDY is a collection of items which was designed and presented during the 2009 Milan Design Week. The SHAPES mirrors are simple and effective elementary forms, graphically displayed, contrasted, extruded, elongated or stretched. The SLIDE mirrors are based on simple graphic drawings, which play with reflection, perception and depth. My absolut favourite product is STUFF: A seamless flat rubber handbag. Its material allows to stretch in three dimensions. Things inside the bag are concealed and revealed through ghosted shapes. STUFF is so simple and a fantastic and functional alternative to the no more available BREE simply bag.
