Artist Xavier Veilhan has built a fantastic site-specific, supersized sculpture entitled ‘Sophie’ for new Paris restaurant, Le Germain (designed by India Mahdavi.)  As you can see, Sophie is a very tall girl and spans two floors.  Vielhan has posted images of the whole process of making ‘Sophie’, which are particularly interesting.

There’s definitely a ‘faceted’ trend going around.  Even Habitat’s in on it!  Below are  ‘Carat’ desk lamps from Arihiro Miyake, ‘Rock’ hanging lamps by Diesel ‘Successful Living’ (yes, the clothing label), ‘Crease’ dishes from Voon Wong & Benson Saw, planters from Habitat… and Lady Gaga, of course.

I know I’ve seen more products like these – but alas can’t remember where.  If you see any others send them my way!
