So let's face it. There's nothing like Chanel - from shoes, to attire, to the scent of all scents, and a personal love, No. 5. But this blogger's not entirely sure what to make of their entire sporting line. Maybe it's because the preference in the wintertime is something along the lines of spa, not skis. Or maybe it's because should I decide to go and ski, I might take someone to the hospital with me. Needless to say, they are really beautiful - full of dark words and exquisite crafting. It's amazing design work and if you are a ski, snowboarding lover - this is something for you. Visit the rest of Chanel's 201o Sports/Accessories collection.
Designer Yoav Avinoam developed a handcrafted method for casting furniture from repurposed sawdust. His tables and stools beautifully juxtapose various textures, while crafted with a mix mixture of resin and sawdust from a variety of woods.
He lays the legs of each table directly into the mold, integrating these elements into the setting sawdust This creates a crumbly texture for the tabletop while adding support. The form of the tree branch-inspired legs also help secure the parts into the mold while it drys. You can check out the process here, at Inhabitat, where there's a gallery of how Avinoam works.
