a d*s reader sent along a link to this beautiful panier percé bowl to go along with last week's mini trend. but upon further investigation it seems it's part of a wonderful collection by an italian design studio called industreal. based in milan, industreal has created a really stunning collection of almost dream-like objects that try to approach product design and from a non-tradtional angle. many of their pieces break apart the notion of what a certain object should be or do, while others are just lovely to look at. they launched a new collection in april this year, but i think their "dream 2006" collection is a really inspiring group to look at- lots of fantastic ideas. i especially love jed crystal's fruit trivet/bowl (it's 'never empty'). you can click here for more information on industreal. enjoy!
