I saw this coffee table in INTERIOR DESIGN magazine a short while back and I flipped! How marvelous are those lucite legs? Is this not a balancing act extrordinaire ? This fantastic creation comes from MC2DESIGNLAB and I think it deserves a (Furniture) Oscar for originality and ultra chicness. The table is fittingly called ICE and is a limited production glass and acrylic piece from their ART COLLECTION.
FACT SHEET: MC2 DESIGNLAB is a creative collaborative effort between industrial designers DESMOND MILLER and JERRY CMEHIL, with specialization on industrial design, furniture design and interior architectural design.
Okay, now I have to do my research. Going on line to see what other pieces are manufactured by MC2LAB I find this translucent green glass, oval shaped table that totally blows me away. It’s called NEW BOR, and is also in limited production. I mean, just think of how unbelievable that table would look in a room.
Further investigation led me to some extremely clean modern pieces that reeked of excellent design and craftsmanship:
The RED BENTO CABINET is a combination of red lacquer and powder coated steel legs. Once again , the design sensibility is a combination of bold color, curves and a balancing act that catches your eye. AND I think the reference to the Japanese bento box…you have tried one at your local Japanese restaurant, right?…is the icing on the cake.
Lastly, I was particularly attracted to the BORSON BENCH . Made of walnut, wool upholstery and stainless. steel, its balancing act is fabulous! Looks like if you felt like moving it around in the house you would just pick up the straight side and wheel it to another location!
MC2DESIGNLAB is now on my A list of to-go-to furnishings!!!
Ciao, ciao ’til next time!
