These Pink Toothbrushes with Pink Bristles are sold in the MoMA Design Store (at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC) for $5.00. The toothbrush was designed by award-winning Danish designer, Andreas Engesvik, who is probably best-known for his furniture designs. You can find them in the point-of-purchase area by the registers, displayed alongside colorful earplugs, capsule-shaped pill cases and snow globe key fobs! Art!

Eye On Design: Slice Armchair By Mathias Bengtsson

The undulating form of Mathias Bengtsson’s plywood Slice Armchair is inspired by cutting-edge technology and organic forms found in nature. Bengtsson initiated the design in 1999 and originally executed it in clay. He then used a computer to analyze the shape and precision-cut hundreds of plywood slices, each a unique shape and just a few millimeters thick, which he stacked and laminated to form the sculptural chair. The result is a contemporary take on furniture made from traditional material, combing high-tech manufacturing methods and handcrafting.

The PH Artichoke Hanging Lamp (1958) was designed by Danish designer Paul Henningsen,  and manufactured by Louis Poulsen & Co. It is made from bent copper, steel and enameled metal and looks just  spectacular!

Henningsen’s Artichoke Lamp employs copper leaves attached to a metal framework to suggest the actual plant. The resulting composition creates industrial-looking, uniform layered planes while evoking a naturally occurring structure.

I  recently passed by the office building at 11 West 19th Street, where I once worked well over a decade ago, and saw that they now have these lamps installed in the lobby.
