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.

Sculptural furniture is great for making a bold design statement. We love the geometric elegance of the Clay dining table from Desalto as well as the bright, pop shapes of the Toadstool sofa from Missana.

From the street this home in the Annandale area of Sydney looks like any other - a traditional black weatherboard-clad cottage sitting discretely behind a neat picket fence. At the back of this house, on the other hand, is a modern extension that is anything but ordinary.
Balance and harmony are the orders of the day with the Coexist collection of furniture, winner of the prestigious top prize at the NYCxDESIGN awards. Brainchild of architect and designer Arielle Assouline-Lichten of Slash Objects, the collection includes products which are all about the juxtaposition of contrasting materials.
