2. The Fondazione Vico Magistretti opened in Milan (HT: Abitare)

3. A Frank LLoyd Wright rug revealed by LAMA (via Prairiemod)

4. A striking white metal table by Charlotte Perriand courtesy Expertissim (in French)

Assorted links of interest:

1. We are not usually fans of the craft/organic school of design, but we are nevertheless open to exceptions, such as the Tree Table by Carl Auböck.

2. Jean Royère “wave” lamp (does anybody know the real name?). UPDATE: it’s calledSerpentin” and featured in this auction.

3. Jean Prouvé, La Poetica dell’ Ogetto Tecnico (a Vitra exhibition at the Accademia di architettura di Mendrisio in Switzerland)
