The Dr. Yes is no shrinking violet; the bold, sweeping profile makes a big statement in any room. We love the contrast between the glossy exterior and matte interior, and the texture of the seat keeps your glutes glued.
It’s wiggly! The spindly, tapering legsgive the chair a fair amount of torque and swivel—–more than any other chair in our roundup. It’s also oddly tall: Despite the dip in the seat rim, shorter people’s legs will dangle.
When the enameled steel Krenit bowl was first released in the 1950s, its designer Herbert Krenchel said, “The idea was to make a beautiful bowl, preferably so functional and delicate that it was equally suited for use in the kitchen, on the dining table and as a decoration in the sitting room.” Production ceased in 1966, but Normann Copenhagen recently reissued the versatile design in white, black, turquoise, purple, green, and red.
Australian design duo Nicholas Karlovasitis and Sarah Gibson started their Sydney-based studio Design By Them as a means to bring new and innovative products to the market at home and abroad. Their latest introduction is the Butter Stool, a small seat constructed almost completely from recycled milk containers (and made of 100% post-consumer recycled content). Arriving as a single flat piece for easy hand folding-and-building, it's also available in white, black, grey, beige, blue, green, red & orange.
