Some Assembly Required: Takehiro Ando
I know felt has been one of the materials du jour lately, but I just don't think I'll ever get tired of it. It's way too versatile and, in many ways sustainable, for it to be purely dismissed as a trend. That being said, I love the new 'Cuma' and 'Cross' products being shown by Takehiro Ando at the Salone Satellite in Milan.
The felt shapes come in packs of 20, 50 and 100, allowing the user to create their own fun forms. Whether that be a curtain of crosses, a lampshade of clustered cumas or a circular throw is up to you. Whether you want to pay roughly $1 a piece for a felt cut-out is also up to you - but hey, why a put a price tag on fun? (via pan-dan)
