More felt today...Reya Veltman made these amazing looking pebbles using natural wool rovings. She says they are soft to the touch, yet retain the hardness of the rock when
squeezed. I love them! Reya is a self-taught artist living in the Netherlands. In her Etsy shop you can find more objects made by her like fabrics, bowls, necklaces and other artwork.
Anna from BientotDemain send me a link to STUDIO LO. A French design duo who designs beautiful furniture pieces like this chair, called the Pano chair. By using water-jet cutting the chair comes out of a single sheet. No screws, bolts or glue here. The chair supports on the principle of lever
Other lovely projects are these Pod slippers. An illustration is being screenprinted on felt...the mold for a slipper is then water-jet cutted...now you only have to fold them together. The Nesting box uses the same principle. It’s not only skillfully made it also looks gorgeous. Click here for the website to find more information.

It's always a pleasure to write about the beautiful furniture pieces from WIS design...Twine Table is their latest creation and I love it. This set of tables is inspired by one of the oldest ways of attaching one object to another – with a needle and thread. The wire is twined through the table top, and becomes legs as well as upholding construction. The tables comes in three different sizes, two coffee tables and a bar table, and can be placed together or apart. For more information click here...
