    That looks beautiful, Diego! I'm guessing the water/light doesn't get too hot for the fish :-) A very interesting piece for sure - I can just imagine the soft light changing against the slow flicker of the fish.

    Thank you very much guys!. Brian the fish seem to like it just fine , and yes when they swim the reflections change and they create shadows that are very interesting. Yes Albert, the edra boa is filled with the little balls, when it arrived from LA it had a little accident and it bled those. I love this piece, ultra comfortable, when friends come over to play ps3 I wait until they leave and then search its depths to find their cell phones and other shit buried there hehehe.

    Sweet.... I may have to make an Edra x Albert couch this summer....</P>


    At least you and your buddies aren't playing Wii and losing the little nunchuks in the couch!</P>


    ... I can see it now. The day you need a few extra bucks to grab a midnight snack all you gotta do is shake the hell out of the couch and suddenly $100 in coins falls out, and so does a small child that was abandoned there. Love it.</P>


    The underwater chandelier is beautiful Diego. I love the setup of your living room/dining too as well with just a standalone wall separater and 2 trees. Very nice!!!</P>

    Diego-The view out of your house looks amazing. You must not be in the main part of Mexico City?

    Yes Cas, not downtown which by the way is being restored and looks lovely specially at night. My view is of the most important lung of the city "Bosque de chapultepec".

    While on a search for new things on A-POC I came across this. Interesting, but doesn't seem so practical.

    <h2 id="post-8910">Pleated Recycled Textile Chair by Nendo</h2>
    by
    Abigail Doan

    <div class="entrytext">



    </p>



    It?s no secret that needless waste and heaps of scraps are part of
    the equation in today?s textile and garment manufacturing process.
    Granted there are some amazing results in terms of cutting edge fashion
    and eye-catching furniture designs, but this often comes at a huge cost
    in terms of the throw-away elements. The Cabbage Chair by Japanese designers, Nendo,
    defies this trend by taking waste paper from the pleated fabric
    industry and turning it into an organic marvel. This gorgeous recycled
    textile waste chair was designed for the XXIst Century Man exhibition curated by Issey Miyake. It?s no coincidence (visually) that ?Pleats Please? has found a new expression in this layered demonstration of waste as upcycled renewal.</p>



    <span id="more-8910"></span></p>



    The Cabbage Chair
    is created from a wrapped cylinder of pleated paper that is typically
    used to create the crisp, signature folds in Miyake?s garments. A roll
    of this by-product paper was slit vertically by Nendo?s designers, and
    a small nest of a chair was revealed by systematically peeling away
    each layer. Resins used during the original paper production process
    add strength and a bit of memory to the shaping process, while the
    pleats themselves give the chair elasticity and a springy cushioning.</p>



    Amazingly, the Cabbage Chair has absolutely no internal structure or
    framework, nor is it assembled with nails, screws, or additional
    textile elements. Reminiscent on some levels of Frank Gehry?s cardboard chairs,
    at least in terms of ?layering as reinforcement?, this perhaps more
    free-form interpretation suggests rebirth as well as comfort derived
    from resourceful, shared, product life cycle designs. As Nendo has
    described, the Cabbage Chair fits (our) active, optimistic, and
    forward-moving ?21st century selves,? the kind of people who, to borrow
    a concept Miyake expressed during a meeting with us, ?don?t just wear
    clothes, but shed their skin?.</p>



    The XXIst Century Man exhibition curated by Issey Miyake, will be at 21_21 Design Sight in Tokyo from 30 March to 6 July, 2008. </p>

    most've you have probably seen this already but for those who havent rick owens makes some interesting furniture, i think it originally started with him using leftover scraps of leather to make a few things and then grew from there</p>

    here are a few pictures of what i think is his house</p>

    I never find anything I have to buy at that sale. Was there anything good? I feel I get better pricing at the ICFF.

    I think Marc Newson is can be considered as one of the best.</p>

    He himself is an industrial designer (design ranging from aircraft interior, lounge, restaurant, to clothes even car and chair).
