Pedigree designers see the beauty of mongrel furniture


Dominic Lutyens over at The Evening Standard coments on the trend for hybrid furniture and also the importance of London Design Week.

Or design company Uncle Oswald is My Hero’s ¬†ingeniously simple recycled vintage Bakelite phone handset which, connected to an MP3 player, acts as a stylish speaker (both on show at 100% Design). So, rest assured, wackiness isn’t a prerequisite of the trend.
