Arthropod Aesthetic

The firm Site Specific Design, creates furniture inspired by arthropods (particularly chilopoda), mollusks, and the other critters that live under decaying leaf matter. Creative Director, Rui Docouto, explained that as a child he was fascinated with “bugs.” “The goal with the bug-lamps was to give them a feeling of movement as though they were alive and in the process of movement, as they still are in the artist/designers memory.” Check out their elegant, creepy-crawly furniture which is sure to be a huge hit within the fabulously wealthy entomologist market.

    Wow! They are some pretty creepy looking–lamps? You couldn’t sit on most of them. The “nymph” looks cute: kind of pettable. But I would be cautious about buying them. I once freaked out a co-worker by wearing a shirt with a picture of ladybugs on it.

    They look more like stuff for marine biologists than entomologists.

    And everyone knows marine biologists, not entomologists, have the kind of big bucks to buy this stuff, anyway :D

    One admits that modern life is not cheap, nevertheless we need cash for different issues and not every one earns enough cash. Therefore to get good loans or just term loan would be a correct solution.
