Modern by Dwell Magazine Whale Coaster Set
Setting out to create something decorative is "not the typical starting point for a modernist," says Chris Deam the animal sculptures in the Modern by Dwell Magazine collection. Taking inspiration from the animal figures created by midcentury furniture designers, however, Deam allowed function to dictate form. The wooden whale doubles as a coaster holder in a playful reference to the creature's oceanic home, and serves as a unique tabletop accent. Four coasters and a coaster stand are included.
