Œil Pour Œil Bomb

by Atelier Polyhedre


The Œil Pour Œil Bomb is a provocative work of art designed and hand-crafted by Baptiste Ymonet & Vincent Jousseaume for Atelier Polyhedre. Explosive devices and the engravings on cabinets of curiosities of the 17th century are the inspirations behind this highly decorative hollow ball with lid, which appears deceptively aggressive or even endorsing the slight ridiculousness of a baroque candy box. Both extravagant and geometric, the Œil Pour Œil Bomb plays with patterns borrowed from the contemporary world or with a more organic resonance, as if they appeared impromptu on the surface of this earthenware sphere. The Œil Pour Œil Bomb works beautifully as a decorative object, making a design statement in both residential and commercial spaces, especially part of contemporary design schemes.

The Œil Pour Œil Bomb is part of the Bomb Collection from Atelier Polyhedre, a series of hollow balls with lids in various styles offering an eclectic panorama of decorative and sensitive inventions.
