Parallel Choice Assortment by Dante Goods and Bads

The most creative designs often come from random thoughts of a wandering mind, and so it was for the Parallel Choice Assortment collection of furniture and accessories by German brand Dante Goods and Bads.

Founded by artist Aylin Langreuter and industrial designer Christophe de la Fontaine, the collection is full of unexpected combinations of colours, shapes and materials.  Farewell is a stitched Alcantara rug which looks like it's been folded, Nightingale is an open lantern made with porcelain and leather, Revue is a side table made of powder-coated steel folded like origami, whilst El Santo Fuori is a sculptural chair with multiple incarnations of canvas, leather, fur and even kilim.  Whimsical inspirations, otherworldly products, truly beautiful to behold.
