The FACETURE series designed by Phil Cuttance consists of handmade faceted vessels, light-shades and table. Each vase in the series is produced individually by casting a water-based resin into a simple handmade mold. The mold is then manually manipulated to create the each object’s form before each casting, making every piece utterly unique.
Despite the crisp appearance of the FACETURE vases, they may have tiny slight surface imperfections as a result of the process; for example where the mold is joined with tape during casting; this is part of the handmade story The Faceture Vase design is shortlisted in the Product Design Category for the Design of Year Awards 2013.
You can check out a previous our site post, where we featured more items in the FACETURE collection, as well as a short movie regarding the production process. The project is available exclusively at Dsigndot with a limited run of each colour in 100 pieces.
Don’t worry about making your shelf picture-perfect. Displaying a collection of toys is a simple, eye-catching solution, and the resulting vignette just might double as wall art! Below we see the Radial Wall Shelf from The Land of Nod. To cut down on the cluttered look, try grouping items by color! These Color Bar Ledges from The Land of Nod make the job easy. Use the shelves themselves to create an artful wall vignette, especially if you purchase intriguing pieces like these Shape Shifter Wall Shelves. This Land of Nod hinged metal shelving allows for a range of configurations, from rectangles to arrows. And don’t forget about creative ideas such as placing patterned paper at the back of your shelving to create a vibrant backdrop. These Honeycomb Wall Shelves are styled with shades of turquoise.

And one of my all-time favorite shelf styling tricks is to display plants on the top layer of shelving, which will draw the eye upward, as well as create height and drama. Below we see shelf-top plants in a tour of my retro-modern home office. Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on the challenging task of styling kids’ room shelving, drawing inspiration from the product photography of The Land of Nod. The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.
