A submission today from Italian industrial designer Michael Breschi, founder of design studio Gentle Giants. Self produced Pig on the wings is both a stool and an end table made of poplar wood, inspired by Meret Oppenheim’s Traccia table.
“… And any fool knows a dog needs a home, A shelter from pigs on the wing.”
Pig on the wings belongs to a breed of little anthropomorphic wood objects that like to infest homes. It has a very simple design, the inspiration for its shape can be found in the Traccia table by Meret Oppenheim, a masterpiece we respect very much. The challenge facing this project was to reduce manufacturing processes; to build an evocative and high quality item using few simple making steps. This stool is assembled without using any screws or glue; all parts are wedged with each other.
