Land Ho!

Posted on March 2, 2006 Under Design

This is an oldie, but a goodie. This piece is much larger than it looks, it’s actually a seating-planter made out of “rotation-moulded polyethylene.” It was designed by London-based design group El Ultimo Grito for the Swedish manufacturer Nola. It reminds me of Karim Rashid’s blob-like furniture forms. Robert Feo and Rosario Hurtado picked up awards at 100% Design in London in ’98, ’99 and again in 2000. No word on what they’re up to now though, hopefully this post grabs their attention so we can all get an update. ViaDesign Bot
