The Shape Of Things To Come.

Curves are the new black when it comes to industrial design. From the elongated drop silhouette of Apple’s Macbook AIR laptop computer, to the very sexy swooping lines of the Fisker “Karma” Hybrid Sports Car.  From time to time, my staff will sometimes run across objects of desire that are truly intriguing by design but confusing when it comes to function. This collection of leather home accessories by Jerome Olivet for French home furnisher Roche Bobois, is a perfect example of this. From what we could gather we have a photo-frame, a basket, a magazine rack, a laptop surface?, a charger plate?, a vase? and a flux capacitor? Whatever they are intended to function as, they are certainly beautifully designed with luscious gradient curves begging to be touched. I suppose that when objects look this good, they don’t really need an obvious function.
