For the first time in the history of design, Charles and Ray Eames utilized the unlimited malleability of plastic for the development of a comfortable seating shell that corresponds to the shape of the human body. The idea of making a three-dimensional molded shell goes back to a design from 1940. The original attempt to make the shell out of plywood was unsuccessful, however, due to the extreme conditions necessary to mold the material. Only with the advent of fiberglass technology was it possible to achieve satisfying results. The first Fiberglass Chair went into production in 1950. After years of research, Charles and Ray Eames were able to realize their goal: An industrially produced chair that is inexpensive, sturdy, and comfortable. The Fiberglass Chairs come in several versions: With an A-shaped shell (armchair) or S-shaped shell (side chair) and on different bases, one of which is the famous »Eiffel Tower« base. Until 1968, Herman Miller also produced a rocking chair base. Every Herman Miller employee who expected a baby received it as a gift until 1984. The original of the Eames RAR Rocking Chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Vitra International AG, Basel/Switzerland. The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of a synthetic bowl in off-white and an iron wire coaster “Eifel Tower”.

The wooden logs stacker “wipster” by artepuro succeeds in creating a balance between a room-designing stele and a practical helper. The steel walls facing each other in “wipster” are flexible and they become an asymmetric V with every new log. The wooden logs which wedge when they are stacked, make up a resistant tower in the artepuro wipster. The sculptural accent of wipster furthermore emerges with the natural surface of the black steel: Its fine grain remains unchanged because of an elaborated procedure. Hereby the material is sealed with a special kind of oil instead of being powder coated or lacquered. The oil enters the structure deeply and it lets the surface untouched.

- In this incredibly detailed wood relief panel from Bali's Ketut Sandi the four-armed Hindu goddess Saraswati reigns supreme. The beautifully hand-carved wall sculpture depicts Saraswati surrounded by tropical flora and features a number of symbolic items. The wood's rich grain is showcased by the light natural finish. The four arms of Saraswati denote Her omnipresence and omnipotence. The two front arms indicate Her activity in the physical world and the two back arms signify her presence in the spiritual world. A book in the rear left hand signifies that knowledge acquired must be used with love and kindness to promote prosperity of mankind. A rosary in the rear right hand (representing ego) conveys that true knowledge acquired with love and devotion melts the ego and results in liberation (moksha) of the seeker from bondage to the physical world. The Goddess is shown playing a musical instrument that is held in her front hands which represents the mind and intellect. Saraswati uses the swan as Her vehicle indicating that one must acquire and apply knowledge with discrimination for the good of mankind.
