Objects of Desire

From the moment I started blogging for and about ChiChi, I wanted to ensure we had a wide variety of content.  Pitching products is one thing, and something we really need to do as we are a business, after all.  But all work and no play makes for a dull read, even if we do have really great merchandise.

I love to search the web for great new design and find that I can spend hours meandering and finding surprisingly wonderful things... many of them just prototypes.  Some are destined to remain a one off, others may go into production.  The only thing to make finding cool new design even better is to see something in its infancy come to fruition as a tangible product.

Objects of Desire will be a weekly feature where we share some of our finds.  If we're lucky, perhaps one day we will see them in our "House".

Icelandic designer Thorunn Arnadottir hasn't had any of her designs go to production... yet.


A necklace by which one counts the time by beads.  Red and Orange beads represent hours.  A silver bead represents midnight and a gold bead indicates noon.  As described on her site, Take Me There! , the beauty of this clock is that the beads can be removed and worn to represent your freedom from time.



A three dimensional painting which adds function to form.  An experiment by the designer which resulted in something fabulous.  I'd purchase one tomorrow if I could.

There are other interesting and unique objects, a radiator which makes one wish they had at least one heater of that type in their home, a dramatic wall sculpture on which to hang jewelry.  Well worth a visit to learn more about the designer and explore her work.
