Furniture Sculptures by Michael Beitz
There is much sculpturally shaped furniture around but sculptures as furniture are somewhat harder to find. Michael Beitz is an artist who takes inspiration from ordinary furniture items such as tables and benches and creates mind-bending sculptures which intrigues and amuses in equal measures. We especially like the bench on a roll, which was featured in Banksy's Dismaland installation in 2015, as well as the dining table which goes round in a loop, just perfect for dysfunctional couples.

Then again, Caceres + Tous, the architects of this house, make a point of pursuing challenging ideas which follow emotions, functionality and the landscape instead of following trends.
