Helix Coffee Table
 Designed by Chris Hardy
Atlanta-based industrial designer Chris Hardy, who made his design debut at Salone del Mobile in 2011, created the sculptural Helix Coffee Table (2012) for DWR. He gave it an odd number of legs and positioned the brass castings to radiate out from the center, resulting in a distinctive asymmetrical form that looks different from every angle. “For Helix, I was inspired by the challenge of personalization in the modern world, and the increasing desire that we have to own objects that match our own styles and philosophies – in the way that art does,” explains Hardy. The cast brass has a natural finish that’s soft and not highly polished. Thick and durable, the annealed glass tabletop is slowly cooled in a kiln to relieve internal stresses after it’s formed. Leveling glides adjust for uneven floors. Simple assembly required; no tools necessary. Base made in India; tabletop made in U.S.A.

Mini Stacked Shelving System
  Designed by JDS Architects for Muuto 

Leave it to an architect to create a shelving system that’s just as versatile as building blocks. The work of Belgian-Dane Julien De Smedt of JDS Architects, this modular system lets you create a shelving unit to fit your particular space and style. “Our projects are humanly designed, politically engaged, financially viable and structurally realistic,” says the designer. When asked how he sees the “new Nordic” celebrated by the Danish company Muuto, De Smedt says it is “like an embrace of a southern culture with a northern rigueur.” The embodiment of that vision, his Mini Stacked Shelving System (2012) can be randomly stacked or precisely coordinated into a tight grid. The three shelves are scaled to accommodate all kinds of books and other media, and while there are only three sizes offered, there are actually five shapes to experiment with, depending on how you position the two rectangles. The negative spaces created between them give you even more orientation options. Each shelf includes a steel clip to connect two boxes together and a wall mounting kit. Made in China.

Womb™ Chair
Designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll®
The expressive sculptural forms of Eero Saarinen’s furniture can also be found in his architecture, from the TWA Terminal at Kennedy Airport to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to Dulles International Airport. In 1940, the Finnish American and his friend Charles Eames took first prize at the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at MoMA. Later that decade, when Florence Knoll challenged Saarinen to create a chair that she could curl up in, she had found the right candidate for the task. The Womb Chair and Ottoman (1946) has an enveloping form that continues to be one of the most iconic and recognized representations of mid-century organic modernism. By applying foam molded over a fiberglass shell, Saarinen created a single-piece form that perfectly facilitates a relaxed sitting posture. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.
