On his work, Pierre Paulin says, “I was aiming to show just how far we could make modernity go,” and his furniture reflects this aim. Well, at least, it reflected this aim in the 1950s and 60s.

Robert Williams may be proud of us with this one. As you may or may not know, Juxtapoz was founded with a bit of car culture (we even made a book) and car art in our roots, and when we saw this Ferrari Factory Tour, we couldn't help but think that there was nothing more appropriate on the car culture front than this.

Pieke Bergmans makes these amazing "light blubs," although she calls them lamps, because we think you are buying the whole thing here. Not a light bulb, a light blub. As she says, "Infected by the dreaded Design Virus, these Blubs have taken on all kinds of forms and sizes you wouldn’t expect from such well behaving and reliable little products."
