I am amazed at all the poor design that is out there. Some may be trendy and look good, but is utterly useless. Other items may be practical, but the design........ So let me highlight a few pieces where form & function blend beautifully - that I'd love to have myself, if I was a rich woman....

In their own words: The design idea comes from the traditional Chinese medicine storage units, where all the drawers are the same size. In order to satisfy the multi- functional requirement, we apply the principles of the Fibonacci sequence to rearrange every size of these units in series, which could be used separately, combines the freedom to incorporate the modular series into different interior spaces or scenarios.
If you are new to the Fibonacci sequence, I've blogged about it before, here.WABI SABI interior design art photography
